The Huawei Matepad 10.4 (2022 version) was launched on the 13th of May, 2022, and this tablet is absolutely good. It has nice specs which range from Huawei’s Kirin chipset to ditching the HarmonyOS for an Android 10 software, though this also comes with some downsides.
Without wasting much of your time, let’s review the 2022 Huawei Matepad 10.4, shall we
Design & Display
The design of this device is nothing special. It sports a glass front, an Aluminium frame, and an Aluminium back.The Huawei Matepad 10.4 is 7.5mm thick and weighs about 460g. It comes in a single color which they call Midnight grey.
The display is a 10.4″ IPS LCD panel which has a resolution of 1200 x 2000 pixels, and 470 nits of peak brightness. it has fairly thick bezles and it supports the Huawei M-Pencil (stylus support)
Huawei Matepad 10.4 Performance
The tab is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 820 5G, built on a 7nm process and is backed up by 4GB of RAM and either 64GB, or 128GB of storage space.
You also have the capability of expanding the storage through the micro SD card slot. Anyways, this tablet will be good for your day-to-day activities ( that is if heavy gaming isn’t part of this activities). Though you’ll get average gaming, but for playing heavy games, go get your self an iPad Air 2022.
This device has ditched the HarmonyOS for an Android 10, and an EMUI 10.1 skin on top, BUT, due to U.S sanctions, google services will not be available on the tablet
Huawei Matepad 10.4 Photography
Now you don’t expect tablets to give the same photo or videography quality as you would get on smart phones, but the single 8 MP camera slapped to the rear and front of this tab takes decent shots in good lighting conditions. (NB the pictures look awful in poor lighting)
it shoots videos at 1080 p and 30 frames per second, both the rear camera and the selfie shooter.
The Huawei Matepad 10.4 has a large 7250mAh, Li-Po battery which charges at 22.5W. It’s pretty decent for a tablet and should last you up to 20 hours of on-screen time after a full charge.
