I originally bought the Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet during this year's Thanksgiving sale. The 32GB model was available for about $100 after taxes. However, after using it for two weeks, I grew increasingly frustrated by its slowness and many freeze-ups. I thought that I could live with that issue considering how inexpensive the Fire HD tablet was. However, it proved to be too much. Amazon's Fire HD tablets are a bit too restrictive in many ways I will not get into since this is a review of the Huawei MediaPad M3 8.0.
For $219, I picked up the Huawei M3 8.0 and well, I love it. I am absolutely happy with the purchase and am glad that I made the switch.
Pictured are the Huawei M3 8.0 and the Fire HD 8.0. Note the Huawei's larger screen size.
- Light (lighter than the Fire HD 8) and slim
- Fast (I bought the 32GB version)
- microSD expansion slot
- Solid build and looks GREAT/premium
- Google Play device. You can install Amazon apps too, such as Kindle, Amazon Appstore, etc.
- Fingerprint sensor with gesture control (also has option to turn on on-screen navigation). Note: once I upgraded to the Nougat Android 7 version, you can now only use one OR the other (the previous version that comes with the tablet allowed you to use both at the same time)
- Feels great in my hands
- Battery life decent
- Decent sound quality and volume (speakers are at top and bottom of device)
- Screen is slightly larger than the Fire HD 8
- Has gyroscope, ambient light sensor, accelerometer, compass
- Occasional app stutter/hiccup
- Costs twice as much as the Fire HD 8
- Does not support 5 GHz Wifi out of the box due to FCC licensing restrictions (although the international versions do, which means the tablet is perfectly capable of it)
- 5 GHz WiFi can be enabled by rooting the tablet (which I didn't want to do). Instructions can be found on xda-developers forums (Google it)
- You can upgrade to Android Nougat 7.0 quite easily by following the instructions found on MinistryOfSolutions (I'm unable to paste the link here -- Amazon restriction). Google for the search term: "ministryofsolutions huawei btv-w09 mediapad m3 nougat". Only "Installation Method 3" (which does not require Root) worked for me. Note: for your reference, the USA model I received is "BTV-W09". [UPDATE 8/12/2018: You may also try to download the official Huawei HiSuite application to perform your updates, backups, etc. This is the method I recommend for the non-technically minded.]
- 5 GHz WiFi was enabled during Step 1 of 2 (Firmware Upgrade) of when I upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat, confirming with 100% certainty that the tablet is capable of it. After finishing Step 2 of 2 (Data Upgrade), however, it lost support for it. Again, probably of FCC licensing restrictions. So you know, the tablet worked perfectly fine after the 1st step (Firmware upgrade) (which also enabled 5 GHz WiFi). However, I went ahead with the 2nd step to ensure I got EVERYTHING upgraded.
- Use the Google Maps Offline Maps feature to download parts of the map. This then enables you to use the built-in GPS for spoken car turn-by-turn navigation :)
As you can see from my list of PROS and CONS, I really like this tablet. In fact, I enjoy using it so much, I started researching what other devices Huawei made, especially since they are so hugely popular in Asia. That led me to the Huawei Honor phones that are scheduled to come to the USA for the first time in 2018, and the more I read about their phones, the more I realize that Samsung isn't the only Android smartphone maker I should be considering. Kudos to Huawei -- I may buy one of your phones in 2019 or 2020 once my current carrier contract is over.

It comes with EMUI 4.1 and I don't like that so I installed the Google Now launcher. It's not much different than my Nexus 9 now. Stock doesn't have an app drawer which is why I went with the Google Now launcher. EMUI 5 should have the option for that but I'm not waiting. The notification/settings dropdown has notifications and quick settings as two separate tabs. I didn't like that at first but it's grown on me. Annoyance in the quick settings is that the wifi quick toggle doesn't have a dropdown list for available networks. It has to launch the full wifi settings page. My favorite feature built in though is the Eye comfort toggle in the quick settings. It gives the screen a yellowish tint similar to f.lux on desktop to save the eyes. Most settings are listed in the same stock Google places, but some are hidden in advanced settings. Not a big deal to me.
The fingerprint reader serves as a button as well. Tap is equivalent to back button. Long press returns to the home screen. Slide left or right on it and it brings up the multi-tasking screen. Since these work through the fingerprint reader, by default the onscreen home/back/multitask buttons aren't present though in the settings they can be enabled and put in preferred order. The fingerprint reader gestures take a bit to get used to but I think its worth it to learn so as to save screen real estate. It didn't take me long to get used to it. The tablet comes with a lot of preinstalled software though I was able to uninstall almost all of them from the settings app list. Only one app I considered bloat that I couldn't uninstall was some printer app.
The screen is 8.4" 2560x1600 16x10. It looks great. Text on this is very crisp. Video's look great. Best part is the 4GB of ram/memory. My main problem with the Nexus 9 was how often the home screen would need to redraw or apps would be discarded from memory needing to reload apps and browser tabs. Using Firefox with an ad-blocker, I'm able to have bunch of tabs open with having to reload tabs. I can have video open in a tab and have no problem with memory. Performance is great. The Nexus 9 would have UI hitches in general navigation but it's very smooth with this device. The only benefit of the Nexus 9 over this would be if you prefer 4:3 over 16:10. In terms of video decode performance, using MX Player I'm able to play most videos. 1080p 30/60fps was no problem. 4k 30fps h.264/h.265 no problem. 4k 60fps 8 or 10 bit video was a no go. 4k VP9 at 30fps worked but there was audio delay so the software probably isn't perfect for that yet. Still better video decode support than the Nexus 9. As a media consumption device this is a really good value. Books, comics, and videos all work very well. I don't game much on tablets but I installed a Chess and Go app which anything can run well.
This 64GB version one came with the AKG IEM's. I'm very impressed with those. I didn't read the listing much so I didn't know it came with those so those were a nice surprise. For pack-in IEM's, they're much better than the usual. I'd consider them pretty good. Better than Klipsch R6M, just a little bit not as good as Sennheiser Momentum IEM's. The only thing the R6M have over these is the amount of bass. The Momentums are better in about every way. Bass, mids, soundstage (though don't be expecting amazing with IEM's). How the buds are shaped from the tips to the base of the driver sits the driver casing in the ear so it doesn't poke out. Even though I don't use these laying down, these would be the most comfortable IEM's to use since they wouldn't poke into the pillow. It has inline controls; vol up, vol down, and play/pause button. If these were sold separately for like $20 cheaper, I'd buy them over the Momentum's.
It's a very good tablet. I'd just recommend people to install the Google Now launcher or Nova launcher. Learn the fingerprint reader gestures to save on screen space. The tablet is much lighter than the Nexus 9 and the system UI performance is much better. Even if the GPU is worse than the Nexus 9, the larger memory pool and the better navigation performance makes it worth the upgrade/side-grade. If you're buying the 64GB version, the AKG IEM's are definitely worth it. How they sound to me sounds like to me they could sell for $50/60. Micro-SD card slot so you won't have issue with storage limits. For an Android tablet, I wouldn't recommend any other. It's well priced and Android tablets aren't even all that versatile so it's not worth spending too much on one anyways.
edit: If you buy this, one annoyance you may have is in expectation of a background app to continue staying in memory when the screen is turned off. It's really aggressive in clearing memory so you have to exempt apps from getting clobbered when turning the screen off. It's in advanced settings -> battery manager -> protected apps.
