User Reviews 1 User Reviews The MatePad Pro 10.8 is very capable for general use but not the best for drawing due to the diagonal line wobble issue. I suggests getting the MatePad 11 instead which has better drawing performance despite being cheaper.
- Teoh on Tech
User Reviews 2 The MatePad 10.8 is better suited for media consumption than as a pro work device. The software limitations like interface and app issues make it hard to recommend to professionals despite the great hardware.
- KLGadgetTV
User Reviews 3 MatePad 10.8 is one of the best Android tablets currently for its smooth performance, premium design and big display. The software works well once you get the apps you need through various methods. I highly recommends it for those willing to work around the Google service limitations.

Huawei's latest MatePad Pro 10.8 tablet offers robust hardware performance and premium design.

The MatePad Pro 10.8 touts top-of-the-line processors like the Kirin 990 and Snapdragon 870, ensuring smooth and fast responsiveness when gaming or multi-tasking.

Reviewers praise the tablet's vibrant 10.8” Quad HD display with thin bezels and sleek metal unibody. Its large 7250mAh battery also impresses, yielding over 10 hours of screen time.

While the tablet excels on the hardware front, Huawei’s lack of Google services remains a major drawback.

The absence of Google Play Store means users must find apps through Huawei's own App Gallery or third party stores. Several popular apps are unavailable or not optimized for the tablet interface.

The unique width ratio of the screen also creates a cluttered Android interface. Some apps force portrait mode usage or have scaling issues in desktop mode. This makes the MatePad Pro less seamless for productivity compared to rival tablets.

Drawing performance proves hit-or-miss as well. The slick M-Pencil stylus and magnetic keyboard provide added functionality. But multiple reviewers cite diagonal line jitter, especially at slower strokes, reducing precision.

This makes the MatePad 11 potentially better for artists despite its cheaper cost.

In conclusion, the MatePad Pro offers top-notch hardware but is hampered by software limitations. Users willing to hunt down apps and overlook some interface quirks will find its robust performance and vibrant display great for media consumption. But professionals seeking optimized productivity should consider alternative tablets for now.
