Anonymous, 17 Dec 2018Yes, Huawei's own player can play MKV files. But why don't you use VLC or MX Player?I'll add that Huawei's own player can play some MKV files, not all MKV files. Some MKV files will be missing the audio - no sound, only pictures. In my experience only the VLC player can play all MKV files, and every file on my hard drive. Even the MX player will be missing the audio with a few files.
So here's what I do. I installed all the above players. I use the MX player as default. If the MX player can't play a certain file, I use the VLC player. It always work. I keep the Huawei's player just in case.

It is my first apple device and I'm android user. But i must admit that ipad is the best value for the money compared to tab s4 and mediapad m5. And performance is crazy. Pubg on extreme settings without any lag. Just go for the ipad 2018 and problem solved:)
I do hope the 2016 MediaPad M6 10 will Finally have an OLED screen, its much better on my eyes than LCD.
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2018Hey s4f786, NPU or no NPU, the down speed move is simply a strategy to differentiate their pro... moreI do agree with you tbf, manufacturers will do this, Intel do it, Nvidia do it too, the practice is nothing new but too those are in saturated markets, whereas when it comes to android tablets it's been on a decline, overall for the future of android tablets it doesn't help. Saying all that I'm very happy with the 960s version, runs very smooth and same as you I don't game on it and mainly use it watch media.
To be fair, I'm telling you that all M5 tablets come with a Type-C to 3.5mm earphone socket adapter. But again, the eliminating the 3.5mm earphone socket is another lousy marketing move to nag the users to the Bluetooth earphones. It doesn't affect me too much. Lucky me! Normally I don't use any earphone.
Now I'll sing a little praise. I have the M5 10.8" non-pro version. The battery life is excellent. All tasks are fluid. For what it's worth, I use less than 20% of the storage space. The screen is just fine, but in a bright, sunny place, I'll have to turn the brightness to above 95% to be able to read the articles on the screen. At normal circumstance, I use only 45% of the brightness.
Hey s4f786, NPU or no NPU, the down speed move is simply a strategy to differentiate their products. It doesn't affect me too much, because I don't play games. So the Kirin 960-S is just fine for my uses. Besides, even the full speed Kirin 960 isn't great for games to begin with, and it was from 2016. Since you mentioned Kirin 960, guess why the factory didn't put a Kirin 970 in any M5 tablet? It's another marketing move. Too many such marketing moves that is slowing killing off the Android tablets.
So just got the non pro version on a black Friday deal for 258 pounds and boy is it an upgrade over my ageing Sony z2 tablet, love the screen, love that it has a bezel which isn't too massive but not too small, great for watching media without your hands getting in the way if you don't have a case for it yet. The sound on this thing is phenomenal, for a tablet it's super loud and provides a great amount of bass. The only thing I don't like is that there's no earphone jack, so something il have to get used to. Now for people wondering what's the difference between the pro and non pro, non pro version you can't use the stylus and also the cpu, the cpu in the pro version is the kirin 960 whereas the non pro is the 960s, what's the difference you may ask, well not much really, the 960s is just underclocked by 300mhz, but ads an npu from the 970 which the 960 doesn't have.

Berserker, 17 Nov 2018This tablet has kirin 960 or 960s.and what is the diference betwen the two? ThanksIf the name with "pro", it has Kirin 960. Without "pro", Kirin 960-S, which is a lower performance, down grade version of the 960. Manufacturers do lousy things like this to differentiate their products.
This tablet has kirin 960 or 960s.and what is the diference betwen the two? Thanks

- I read PDF files on this tablet. It's excellent for this task. I don't have MS Office on it, but I can write notes.
- I've been using this tablet for the past month and a half. I'll say it is a competent machine for anything I throw at it. I don't play games on it. I mainly use the tablet for reading: files and webpages. Also, screen mirroring. So I can watch content on big screen TV. It does this well.
- The battery life is good. The charging is fast. I usually charge the battery when it's 70% and stop when it's 95%. It take 30 minutes max.
- Huawei's build quality is very good. I expect this tablet to last a good number of years without any problem. In the long run, the tablet is as good as its battery. And, you will want the software updates. Because without it, the tablet will become vulnerable, and you won't be able to run the new apps.
What is the difference betweem Pro e Standard versione of this M5? Only the stylul pens and the CPU?
why do they keep making only GSM tablets. they should make only Wi-Fi versions for those that dont need sim card in tablet. this will reduce price
