Been using almost 2 years.
Everything still works fine, including battery life.
Rear camera is awful though, since day 1.
I have new M3, Harman Kardon speakers is great, powerfull sound from hedphones, super sharp display, very good battery, speed, quality... TOP 3 tablets!
had this around 2yrs. it still works fine, and faced a lot of damage from my sibs. dropped it multiple times and it does have cracks, you can even see some of the inside of the tablet. and the recently someone sat on it and it got REALLY bent. but it still works. of course there's a stutter here and there, and the occasional sudden shutdown of an app, but what do you expect from a device that faced this much damage? it's pretty great for what it's worth. i would have definitely kept using this tablet because it's so easy to use, but i have to move on and get another device. the only thing i will complain about doesn't really have to do with the tablet itself but huawei. i was running out of space and got an SD card and that's when i learned you can't transfer apps to the card, only files. huawei said it was to prevent your phone from slowing down considerably (which to be fair, it happens to some devices) but that should be the consumer's choice, not theirs. if that wasn't the case, i would definitely be getting another huawei device. but for now, i will probably get the vivo v15. oh yeah and the last update was july 2018 but i don't care for updates. but for people that do, don't get this tablet. cheers
Mine also don't want to upgrade. Even with Firmware Finder. It is the model with build # BTV-DL09C433B001.
I believe that Huawei is not upgrading the M3, with the hope that they can sell more M5. Nothing differentiates the two models greatly, other than the OS.
I will also never buy another Huawei. The Mediapad is good. Huawei ethics is below par.
(Not bad 4 GB ram), (Classy Aluminum case), light feather weight, battery life excellent, _shakes impressively on full volume_ from the widely placed speakers , mutifunction home key tales getting used too, but is very innovative, easily super-cedes easily bumped control buttons or keys on other tablets. (Slows down) as you would expect from a thinnish tablet, media pad (GPU wise), drawing all those pixels,getting a bit hot switches to slower cores makes the battery last longer, freezes up sometimes.The only dissappionting feature of this Media Pad_ 4 GB _ram ,slow hd resolution, classy aluminum case ,posh prices.the (usual bloatware) or (too many apps smallish internal HD).
why my mediapad so laggy when I play game such as pubg. any,solution guys? help me please.
If you full reset your Android 6.0 mediapad. Will it automatic update to Android 7.0 after that or it will remain at Android 6.0?
