Introduction and also specs
Everybody assumed the days of the Android tablet computer mored than prior to the pandemic. With individuals staying home, tablet computer sales experienced a resurgence, which will certainly proceed in 2021. Huawei made the natural decision to increase its initiatives in this area. The business was one of the few to proceed investing in Android tablet computers, despite the fact that nothing else supplier would.
Huawei deals with two difficulties. They encounter boosted competitors from everybody acquiring tablet computers again. But they need to likewise confirm that their new HarmonyOS is an entirely various operating system than the Google-powered Android we currently know.
Their newest Matepad schedule will certainly be leading this effort. We currently had a look at the MatePad Pro 12.6 in detail and also currently it’s time to take a look at the 2021 version of the vanilla MatePad 11, which seems to be an all-around device as well as asks a more practical EUR400 (6GB/64GB).
Although we haven’t reviewed the Matepad Pro 10,8 yet, it appears that the vanilla Matepad 11 shares numerous features with the Snapdragon chipsets and the LCD panel. Matepad Pro 10.8 is much more focused on shade precision and greater max illumination. However, the Matepad 11 makes up for these shortcomings by offering a 120Hz rejuvenate rate, which is rather pleasurable.
Although the battery has 7,250 mAh, it is the same size as the Pro. Nonetheless, billing rates are much slower as well as do not sustain wireless charging. To reach the target cost, it was needed to cut expenses. There is no mobile choice and also the base storage space is two times that of the previous version.
The MediaPad 11 vanilla is the only model that uses a conventional microSD port, rather than Huawei’s exclusive NM cards which are more difficult to locate as well as cost more per GB. If storage space is necessary, the MediaPad 11 may be the better option.
The specifications sheet is not the end of the review. We think that the MediaPad 11 is a sensible option. It provides most of the features and provides a similar user experience to its extra pricey brother or sisters, the MediaPad Pro 12.6 or Pro 10.8. It sustains accessories such as the Smart Magnetic Keyboard and Huawei’s M-Pencil. The last comes as a package with the tool, however it is worth examining if this offer is offered in your location.

The Huawei MatePad 11 features a standard box that consists of a suitable 22.5 W billing adapter as well as a USB A to USB C cord for information transfer. Huawei has included a dongle since there is no 3.5 mm sound port.
Our review unit included the supposed Huawei Smart Magnetic Keyboard. It is just suitable with the MatePad 11. You will need to buy it individually. There were a couple of offers that consisted of the key-board in particular countries if you pick the bigger storage space variation.
