Huawei has announced this morning that the company’s MediaPad M5 lineup is now available in the United States. Coming in both an 8.4″ and 10.8″ with 2D curved glass – a first for tablets, the Huawei MediaPad M5 brings a powerful Android tablet experience that really no other manufacture can match these days. Both tablet sizes are powered by the Kirin 960 SoC built by Huawei, 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM.
With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, Huawei has a great promotion running for those Mums who need a new phone. Right now at Amazon you can pick up the powerful Huawei Mate 10 Pro in an exclusive Mocha Brown color, for $649. That’s $150 off the regular price. There is no coupon code required – just visit this link and the special pricing is already applied. That pricing will be good now through May 19th.
I reviewed the Huawei Mate 10 Pro a few months ago and as I put in that review, it is one of the best phones out there right now. Huawei has done a fantastic job with the overall design of the phone and the Android Oreo built EMUI 8 user experience is excellent.
When it comes to flagship devices in 2018, there are certain expectations you have in that device. It is going to have a solid display, likely 18:9. It is going to have solid performance, excellent battery life and cameras that give you those great shots every day no matter the conditions. That is a significant list of demands and few phones fully meet all the criteria. But the latest flagship from Huawei, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, does so brilliantly.
Building on the solid foundation of the Mate 8 of 2016 and the Mate 9 of 2017, the Mate 10 Pro is an evolution of all the things Huawei has learned on their phones. While this is evident under-the-hood with their updated, AI-driven Kirin SoC, it is also in the more visible parts too. EMUI 8, the company’s take on Android Oreo, is everything that the previous version where not. In other words, it is intutitive and solid. I actually like EMUI now. Add to that an impressive dual camera configuration with Leica optics and you will get stunning photos from the phone too. It is a pretty complete package that is fun to use.
Recently I was sent a Huawei Mate 10 Pro by Huawei USA to review and after using it, I can easily recommend it for those of you who are looking for a flagship phone. At a price of $799, it is certainly in the flagship price range but you’ll find very few compromises with this phone.
Over the weekend, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro became available for pre-order from several retailers, including Amazon. The $799 flagship phone will ship on February 18th and if you buy it at Amazon, you get a $150 Amazon gift card with it. Not a bad deal.
As with previous Huawei phones, the Mate 10 Pro will come with a selection of EMUI themes that are unique to it – for now. As these things go, it doesn’t take much to extract these stock themes and now you can download them yourself for your current Huawei or Honor phone. In all, there are 9 themes that come on the phone and you can download the files here in one ZIP file.
