Please BEWARE before buying the Huawei MediaPad M3. The hardware is good with very good battery life BUT:
1) the back up software app Â– Huawei Â“HiSuiteÂ” - after last update no longer recognizes the MediaPad M3, Huawei says its a known problem, with no estimated date for patch, it has been 5 weeks now. 2) The tablet is running Android 6 and EMUI 4.1 with no information when if ever Huawei will update this product to Android 7 (or 8) and EMUI 5 as they are doing for their other products.
So your data and other information is subject to loss or compromise until Huawei does these updates. Also Huawei does not show a repair facility in the United States. Again buyer BEWARE.

satnam singh, 31 May 2017I want to buy this tab but how buy on line Amazon has it.
AnonD-432171, 30 May 2017Huawei.. pls provide system update for this tablet. I would love this more if will be upgraded... moreHi
The update is coming. But when...???? And it is Android 7.0(EMUI 5.0) and not 7.1.
It is the way HOW Huawei provides the updates, that made me sell my M3. No more Huawei for me.
This is my first huawei tab/phone, and it will also be the last.
The M3 itself isn't the problem. It is a good value for money tab.
My reason for never buying one again, is the lack of service, support and EMUI.
The update to emui 5.0 (to me it is NOT android 7.0 nougat!) Is released now for more than a month. 1 on 1000 has the luck of receiving the update. The rest...??? And don't bother asking huawei....No answer, or an imei number "not yet in system" reply." If you don't get it by OTA, Please send in your device , an we will install the update."
What a stupid answer is that???? No more huawei!!!
Huawei.. pls provide system update for this tablet. I would love this more if will be upgraded to 7.1 nougat with emui 5. Pls pls pls
ANONG, 08 Feb 2017Anyone know this tab having 4G for internet network ?It has 4G and it works well but make sure that the lte band of your service provider is compatible with this device
Promethus, 14 May 2017With an 8MP sensor and it is not doing 4K video??!! That's a little bit of a let down... :~\Camera sensors are typically 4:3, so to shoot 4K you'd need at least 3840 x 2880 (11MP). Usually you need a bit more (>12MP) for electronic stabilization. This 8MP sensor is 3264 x 2448 pixels.

Would Huawei fix the lag in games in the major update of May 2017?
Just got hand this tablet. Could be the best android tab beside galaxy tab s. Display and sound are exceptional. Still a bit lag on gaming compare to ipad. Octa core 4gb ram but anonimously lost out to tripple core 2gb ram ipad. Maybe the galaxy tab s3 with sd820 will gain back some pride for android. Snapdragon processor are expensive with weak gpu. Any brand willing to produce a fair price tab with the x20 or x30 mediatek processor?
