Huawei Matepad Review: A tablet for students?

    Do you remember how you spent the weekend in high school?

    At that time, I, every Saturday afternoon will be about two or three students, came to the milk tea shop, ordered a cup of milk tea, and then from the bag out of the textbook and homework, and then a stay is an afternoon.

    Now, if you go to some schools near the milk tea shop, you can still see a lot of students who have finished the class. The table is still a cup of milk tea that can be drunk all afternoon and will never finish homework. But what’s different is that some students now hold a tablet in their hands.

    About three years ago, a year before I left campus, I began to choose a tablet as my learning tool. To say a comparison of the words of the horse gun, although at that time with the tablet to learn the students are still quite few, but I was aware at that time:

    As a productivity tool, the tablet may have a deficiency, and as a learning tool, the tablet cannot be more appropriate.

    Later facts also confirmed my idea at that time, the student market has become the main market for tablets, the user object has been slowly expanded from the beginning of college students to pre-school to high school.

    For the student community, Huawei released a new product in the series, Huawei MatePad, less than half a year after it released the Huawei MatePad Pro late last year.

    Huawei MatePad 1

    The main configurations for Huawei MatePad are as follows:

    Screen: 10.4-inch, 2000 x 1200 pixels, 16:9.6 IPS screen

    SoC: Kirin 810 (2xCortex A76-6x Cortex A55) Mali-G52 GPU

    Storage combination: 4GB/6GB RAM, 64/128GB ROM

    Network: Cellular-Wi-Fi

    Battery: 7250mAh

    Huawei MatePad 2

    Or a familiar sense of order.

    Remember when I first started the Huawei MatePad Pro last year, the first impression I made was that Fang Zheng and Unification. This design concept also extends to Huawei MatePad.

    The front of Huawei MatePad is a 10.4-inch 2K screen with a four-sided, equally wide design, but the difference is that the Huawei MatePad doesn’t have a hole-in-the-hole design, but instead places the camera in the middle of the top of the screen.

    Obviously this is also a cons and cons of the choice, the advantage is that there are no small black spots on the screen, will give you a more complete visual experience, and the compromise is the border thickness.

    The Huawei MatePad is basically 3mm thicker than the Big Brother MatePad Pro, but the former still has an 84% screen share. Combined with the upper quadrices width, 7.35mm thickness and about 450g of weight, it may not be as sophisticated as the Huawei MatePad Pro, but it’s definitely not cheap.

    As for the back of the fuselage, the Huawei MatePad takes a simple route. All that’s left is HUAWEI’s logo and the logo of the Harmancaton tuning, except for the camera.

    How to learn with a good screen, Huawei MatePad thinks

    Since this Huawei MatePad is more of a major education market, so this experience I mainly from the learning point of view to talk about this product.

    Have you ever thought that more suitable to become a learning tool, why not a computer, not a mobile phone, but a tablet?

    One of the main reasons is that the tablet can be crammed into the largest possible screen in the most limited volume.

    So how to make good use of this big screen, has become a watershed between different brands of tablets.

    Huawei MatePad 6

    Like huawei MatePad Pro, matePad is also fitted with a stylus, Huawei M-Pencil. Don’t look down on a pen, it’s more important to students than a keyboard. I also believe that whether it is primary school or university, whether it is liberal arts or science, no matter what kind of major you read, are inseparable from the pen.

    The point of writing for learning is that you will have clearer thinking in the process. To give the simplest example, before I bought a tablet in college, although there were a variety of brain-drawing software on the computer, which is convenient and fast, I still use paper and pen to do a mind map.

    On tablets that support the stylus, I can either electronically write everything, so that I can edit, save, and share it at any time, or I can keep the process of thinking while I write.

    Huawei MatePad 7

    The actual experience is that the M-Pencil on the Huawei MatePad is no different from the one on the MatePad Pro, with precise handwriting and excellent latency.

    You can think back to your previous homework or review, but most of the time there is more than one book on the desk.

    The same is true of learning on tablets.

    With the split-screen function, while opening the web class application and notes application, you can take notes while you can take notes, you can also do simulation questions, next to open a draft book.

    Huawei MatePad 8

    Of course, many tablets have split-screen functions, and the only “parallel vision” function is original lying to Huawei. Unlike split screens, the “parallel horizon” function actually refers to the same application for split-screen operation.

    At first, I didn’t quite understand what the “parallel horizon” function meant, but when I actually used it, I found out that it was still good in a particular scenario.

    Take two of the most commonly used examples. The first is to swipe the micro-blog, sometimes on the micro-blog to the good-looking but longer-term video, I can use the “parallel vision” while watching the video, while continuing to brush the stream of micro-blogs.

    Then there is Taobao, the goods are the necessary skills of our smart consumers, the past is to remember the price of A merchant, and then to see the price of B merchants. With “parallel horizons”, the price is easy.

    And for learning, I a junior high school brother has a more say. During their time at home, the head teacher recommended that they start their own study with an app called “nanobox”.

    Huawei MatePad 9

    However, because these online courses are supporting reference materials are in this app, so if you want to listen to the class while looking at reference materials, my brother can only take out another mobile phone to see. But with the “parallel horizon” feature, he can watch online lessons and reference materials on the same screen.

    Huawei revealed that more than 3,000 apps now support “parallel vision”, and I specifically asked other cousins of different grades which online classes or learning apps they would use. It turns out that most of the things they often use, such as Tao boutique classes, school studies and homework, etc. are already compatible with the “parallel horizon” function.

    Huawei MatePad 10

    Also take advantage of this large screen, there are multi-screen synergy this function.

    In the study, take a phone call, reply to a message, and then you can’t help but hold the phone to brush half a small micro-blog. This is common for most students.

    But with this multi-screen collaboration, you can easily move your phone directly to the screen on the tablet, and you can connect calls directly on your tablet, keeping your attention on the same screen without missing any calls and messages.

    Huawei MatePad 11

    For eye protection, Huawei MatePad has an “e-book mode” feature that, when turned on, the screen simulates the ink screen e-book, reducing the stimulation of the eyes.

    Not only that, but I found a very intimate “distance eye protection” feature during the “Back to Class” experience, which is detected by Huawei MatePad when you are too close to the screen or lying down to see it, and then reminds you to “sit up.”

    Huawei MatePad 12

    If I read that time can also have such a intimate “teacher” always remind me, I guess I will not start from primary school to wear glasses.

    “I’ll try to give you the best, but it won’t be the most expensive.”

    In writing this experience, I thought of a word my father said to me when I was a child:

    I’ll try my best to give you the best, but it won’t be the most expensive.

    Indeed, this is the family from a young age to cultivate the concept of consumption, expensive is not necessarily the best, the right is.

    Huawei MatePad 13

    On huawei MatePad, I feel the same way.

    The Huawei MatePad is not the most avant-garde in design, but it’s light enough to hold it on your hand. In terms of performance, the Kirin 810 is more than enough to handle all the learning software, although it is not equipped with the flagship SoC. Functionally, Huawei M-Pencil, Smart Split Screen, Parallel Vision, and Multi-Screen Collaboration, which are very useful for learning, are also preserved.

    Huawei MatePad 14

    For a non-flagship model, huawei is very accurate on the MatePad for a product that focuses on the student market, what to keep and what to compromise.

    In addition, for students, the more important than the hardware, is actually software. We’ve seen Huawei raise the banner on the Android tablet ecosystem on Huawei MatePad, and we’ve seen Huawei’s exploration of the education market in its own “Education Center” on Huawei MatePad, Children’s Paradise, and more optimized third-party education apps.

    And for the entire Android tablet ecosystem, it really needs some of these products to stand up and live the whole ecosystem.
