Tablets are increasingly seen a sharp rise in their demands and companies all over the world are trying to dominate the tablet markets. Huawei has also ventured in the tablets market few years back and they seems to be getting better at that every year. Huawei has also been able to attract a significant number of customers too. It's not the first time Huawei has launched a tablet but and its previous tablets have worked well in markets. Adding another tablet to its queue, Huawei, recently launched its Huawei Honor Pad 2 tablet. The tablet offers a range of features and is all set to woo away its customers.
The tablet has an eye catching design and looks well. The volume rocker and power buttons are provided on the right side of the tablet while the 3.5mm audio jack is provided on the top. The loudspeaker has been placed on the top part of the rear panel. The phone looks quite impressive from the back panel and certainly catches the user’s eyes. The external dimensions of the tablet are 8.24 x 4.84 x 0.32 inches and the tablets weighs 340 grams, which is slightly more compared to the other tablets present in its price range.The thickness of the tablet is 8.1 mm, which is not bad. The tablet is available in two color variants i.e. Gold and White. A 8.0-inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has been provided in the tablet that provides a screen resolution of 1200 x 1920 pixels. The 283-ppi rich screen turns out to be decent. As the display is large the pixel density is lower, however, the screen looks bright enough. Of course, one cannot compare the display to the iPads. However, in its price segment, the display is really great.
The tablet features an Octa-core (4x1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4x1.5 GHz Cortex-A53) processor that is backed by a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset. The processor seems to be powerful enough to provide a pleasurable experience. There was no lag or stutter observed while navigating through the phone. The Adreno 405 GPU works well and games as well as videos are played without any problem. The internal storage provided in the tablet is 16/32 GB, while the memory can be expanded up to 256GB using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. A 3GB RAM has also been provided in that tablet, which seems enough for all the power needs of the tablet. The tablet runs on Android Operating System, that too on version 6.0 i.e. Marshmallow with the help of Huawei’s EMUI 4.0. The tablet supports only one SIM and supports 4G networks.
The tablet features an 8MP, f/2.0 primary camera that is supported by autofocus and LED flashlight. The front shooter features a 2MP camera. The primary camera is backed by additional features like Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama. Video recording is done by the camera at frames like 1080p@30fps. The camera works decent enough and the images captured by it are average. The rear camera captures some decent pics, but one might have to several images to get the desired results. Low light photography suffers the most, as lot of noise seems to creep in the photographs. The front shooter can also be used for video calling, as the images captured by it are not that great. The loudspeaker provided in the phone turns out to be impressive, as it gets loud enough. A 3.5 mm audio jack is also provided in the tablet.
A Non-removable 4800 mAh Li-Po battery is provided in the tablet that works great. The battery can easily work for a day with moderate to heavy usage. The battery doesn’t supports wireless charging.
