Traditional but pragmatic productivity tool Huawei matepad 10.8 tablet experience

What do you usually do with tablets? Study, work, play, or play games?

In the current era of fast-paced and efficient mobile Internet, how to choose a suitable laptop / tablet computer has become a headache for college students and young white-collar workers. An excellent tablet computer can not only make your work and study twice the result with half the effort, but also add infinite fun to your life. Of course, if you are still a treasure mother and father, it can also become a happy evening class and “enlightenment teacher” for children’s good childhood.

Today, we bring you such a product, namely Huawei matepad 10.8, a new tablet product just released by Huawei.  

Classic look, high quality sound

As you may have noticed, the title of this article has the word “traditional”, which refers to the design of matepad 10.8. At the moment when full screen is widely used in mobile phones and laptops, matepad 10.8 still adopts the traditional design of four sides and narrow edges, and retains the home key. Here, I want to emphasize that tradition does not mean to be “conservative”, but more about the inheritance of classic tablet design, which is one of the best design schemes for tablet computers so far.

Compared with the small mobile phone that can be operated by one hand, the tablet computer with “huge body” has to be controlled by both hands, and the design of four narrow edges provides better hand feeling and convenient operation, and effectively avoids the occurrence of problems such as accidental touch. However, it is worth mentioning that although matepad 10.8 adopts the traditional narrow edge design, it still accounts for more than 80% of the screen.

Matepad 10.8 is equipped with a 10.8-inch 2K resolution (2560 x 1600) display screen. 2K resolution is the standard configuration of current flagship smart phones, but it is not common in notebook / tablet computer field. 2K resolution can bring more clear and delicate picture performance, especially in entertainment such as games and movies.

What I got was the mattepad 10.8 Silver Diamond grey version. The metal sandblasting on the back of the fuselage brought a full texture. The small Huawei English logo was printed on the middle of the back, which was low-key and unobtrusive.

In the upper right corner of the back of the fuselage, we can see a 13 megapixel camera, which can be used to take pictures, scan codes, AI recognition, etc. of course, if you are carrying a 10.8 inch tablet computer to take photos in the park, you may be ridiculed as an “old man”.

Rear camera with magnetic keyboard

Most users will use the right hand button to fit the pad. The buttons include volume plus / minus key and power button, while the type-C charging port, SIM card slot (all Netcom version) and 3.5mm headphone jack are located below the buttons.

In order to provide users with an excellent sound experience, matepad 10.8 has four loudspeakers on both sides of the upper and lower frames, which Huawei calls “four channel stereo”. At the same time, the machine also adopts Harman carton professional tuning and carries Huawei histen 6.1 3D stereo sound effect technology independently developed by Huawei.

As a well-known audio brand in the audio industry, Harman carton has always been the pronoun of high-quality audio products. It is understood that Huawei has invited the “golden ear” audio engineer team with many years of audio development experience to conduct sound tuning and Optimization for the tablet, which has been certified by Harman carton. When I listen to the audio with the power amplifier, I really feel the different sound effect experience of the traditional flat panel. The sound is fuller, the voice is transparent, and the sound field is wider. In short, it is more shocking and direct to people’s hearts. Especially when watching movies, I have a feeling of small family cinema, which is better than most of the flagship mobile phones on the market.

When we connect headphones in subway and other environments, we can turn on the Huawei histen sound effect in the sound settings bar. The sound effect includes four modes: intelligent, 3D immersion, fidelity, and normal mode. See the figure below for specific effects.

Powerful hardware, smooth experience

Let’s take a look at the hardware performance of the matepad 10.8 before we go through it. Matepad 10.8 is equipped with the same Hisilicon 990 & nbsp; SOC chip as Huawei’s flagship phone, so the actual performance of the device is no less than that of any current flagship smartphone.

In Master Lu’s performance score, we can see that the matepad score of 10.8 is as high as 380937, and the chip score is 149322, which belongs to the normal score range of the chip, with strong performance.

In terms of storage, Huawei provides users with 6G of memory as standard, and provides 64g, 128G and 256g of storage. Users can choose their own capacity according to their personal needs.

At the same time, in order to ensure a long battery life under strong performance, matepad 10.8 is equipped with a 7500mah battery as standard, and supports 22.5w fast charging. The full time of off screen is about 2.6 hours under startup state.

So what is the actual experience of matepad 10.8 with such robust hardware performance? To sum up in two words is fluency. Thanks to Kirin 990 chip and emui 10.1 operating system, no matter browsing the web, watching movies, or even playing games, there will be no jam. The screen is sensitive to touch and can respond immediately after clicking.

At the same time, matepad 10.8 can also choose to use a Huawei m-pencil stylus, and has set up a special zone for the stylus in the system. In addition to the built-in Nebo for Huawei and Huawei memo, we can also find almost all the mainstream software on the market, such as Yunji. The pen is also highly sensitive and has excellent handwriting experience. At the same time, the pen is equipped with 4096 pressure feeling, which makes the writing more accurate. In the actual use of cloud records and other software, I feel that the thicker the lines, the better the handwriting experience. The thinner the lines are, the more likely they are to write on cardboard with a pencil.

In terms of modeling, m-pencil adopts exquisite hexagonal design, and one side is designed with circular arc inner groove, which is the magnetic charging contact surface. It can be easily charged wirelessly with a stylus charger. The pen can be used for 10 minutes after charging for 20 seconds, and can be used for 10 hours when fully charged in 30 minutes.

It can be said that the addition of handwriting pen provides great convenience for design and art work. They can create works at any time on the tablet computer and improve the efficiency. After experiencing it for a while, my design colleagues told me that m-pencil was very easy to use, similar to the experience of the tablet it bought for sketching.

After deep experience, m-pencil still has a small design regret. If it can be absorbed to the side of the tablet by magnetic absorption, it will be more perfect.

It has rich functions to meet the needs of any scene

In addition to its exquisite appearance and powerful performance, matepad 10.8 has many “special functions” that cannot be realized by other tablet computers. The most representative one is Huawei’s unique multi screen collaboration.

The operation is very simple. We just need to pull down the status bar, click the “multi screen collaboration” button, and turn on the Bluetooth of the Huawei mobile phone to be connected. After connecting with Bluetooth, we can achieve the fast simultaneous interpreting of HUAWEI mobile phone and tablet. This is very ingenious and convenient.

Take two very simple examples. For example, we often encounter a lot of text on the boss’s big screen in meetings, or PPT with complicated and important contents. In this way, we can upload the photos to the tablet computer immediately after taking pictures with Huawei mobile phone, and watch them more carefully with a larger screen. For example, customers give you feedback on the solution through wechat, but the mobile screen is small and inconvenient to operate, so we can directly drag it to the tablet through multi screen collaboration, which is very convenient.

Of course, Huawei also has its own caution: it hopes to effectively promote its notebook / tablet products among its mobile phone users. As this high-efficiency office mode of multi screen collaboration is limited to Huawei mobile phone users, in the future, with the large-scale promotion of this high-efficiency collaborative office, it may be the most perfect working or learning state to equip each Huawei mobile phone user with a Huawei notebook or tablet computer as a standard.

In addition to multi screen collaboration, matepad 10.8 also supports a new computer mode, which is simply Android desktop. We still need to pull down the status bar and click the “computer mode” button. With Huawei’s magnetic keyboard, matepad 10.8 has become a 10.8-inch small computer. It is also very convenient to use WPS for office coding. For many friends, the only drawback of this mode may be that the screen is a little small.

How to accomplish multiple tasks more efficiently on a limited screen? The smart screen gives the answer. On matepad & nbsp; 10.8, we just need to slide in from the right side of the screen and stop, then we can split the screen. It’s very convenient for girls to do shopping while they are painting.

In addition, matepad 10.8 also has the functions of continuous call, intelligent voice assistant, intelligent vision, and distributed picture library. Here is a suspense for you. If you want to know more functions, you may as well buy and experience them in person.

If you are a college student, matepad 10.8 also has in-depth cooperation with MOOC of China University, providing users with an exclusive rights package worth more than 6000 yuan (USD $857) , covering popular university courses, such as IELTS, postgraduate entrance examination, public examination, office, and computer, to meet all your learning plans and needs. In terms of children’s education, matepad 10.8 also has built-in baby bus and vipkid Learning Center app.

At the end:

Overall, Huawei matepad 10.8 is a very powerful product. With the support of powerful hardware such as Kirin 990, Huawei matepad 10.8 also provides users with rich and exclusive functions to maximize work and learning efficiency. The addition of stylus and magnetic keyboard makes it become a drawing board and a notebook computer. At present, the machine has been fully pre-sale, the price from 2399 yuan (USD $343) , in such a comprehensive performance can be said to be full of sincerity, like the small partner might as well pay attention to it.
