Huawei MediaPad M5 lite 10 Review
DESIGN, DIMENSIONS, CONTROLS
A few years ago, I often tested tablets and well-remembered that the average weight of ten-inch models was in the range of 550-700 grams. Yes, the “dozens” were thick and heavy. It was for the first time more pleasant for me to take the M5 lite into my hands after a long break in testing. Despite the diagonal of 10.1 inches, it weighs only 475 grams, and its thickness is 7.7 mm. At the same time, we are not talking about the flagship model, but about an affordable device for 20-25 thousand.
With tactile sensations, too, everything is fine, the back cover is made of smooth aluminum, it is very pleasant to the touch, while resistant to prints and scratches.
On the right side are the power button and volume control rocker, and on the left you can see the tray for the nanoSIM and microSD card, as well as the minijack for headphones and the Type-C port.
Four stereo speakers from Harman Kardon are located above and below, they have simply amazing sound quality, I was pleasantly surprised by its depth and volume, usually you don’t expect this from an inexpensive tablet.
Front and rear cameras are installed at the front and rear, and a fingerprint scanner is located below the display. He has excellent speed and accuracy of unlocking. By the way, the scanner itself is a touch, not a physical button.
|Display resolution 1920×1200 pixels|
|Screen diagonal 10.1 inches|
|PPI value 224|
|IPS matrix type|
|Oleo phobic coating Yes|
|Automatic brightness adjustment Yes|
|Multi-touch support Present, up to ten simultaneous touches|
On the one hand, the characteristics of the display, judging by the tablet, are standard, and on the other, the screen in the M5 lite is pretty darn good. The absence of an air gap can be seen with the naked eye, the viewing angles are close to the maximum, and in the sun the picture remains clearly visible.
In general, FHD-resolution for the eyes enough for such a diagonal. This applies both to watching movies or games, and reading – even small fonts are clearly distinguishable, pixelation is almost imperceptible. The range of brightness is also large, at the minimum you can comfortably read at night, the maximum is suitable for working with a tablet on the street.
The sound quality in the headphones is good; it is noteworthy that they did not refuse from the minijack. During calls, you and your interlocutor also hear each other perfectly. Once again I note the very high-quality stereo speakers. If you like to watch movies at home without headphones, then in terms of sound you will get great pleasure. As for watching videos, all Huawei tablets by default support a huge number of codecs and containers, from simple MP4 to complex MKV with two audio tracks and subtitles.
