11 most notable things about the Huawei MatePad 11

A quick list for you!

Published

on

It’s always a little tricky trying to find a spot for a tablet in your life especially if you’re not exactly the artsy, doodling type. But time and time again, Huawei makes devices that make you really want one. This is the case with the Huawei MatePad 11. 

If you’re already considering one, we put together a quick list that just might make you click checkout on your cart.

Gorgeous display

One of the primary reasons for getting a tablet is the larger display — at least one that’s larger than your smartphone but still more mobile than a laptop. But what good is a larger display if it doesn’t perform well? That’s not the case with the MatePad 11. This thing is packing.

You’re getting a 10.95-inch display with an 86 percent screen-to-body ratio. That display also has a 120Hz refresh rate for a buttery smooth experience. Not to mention the DCI-P3 colour gamut for accurate colors. The 8MP front-facing camera is situated at the bezel so you get an uninterrupted screen experience.

Perfect for reading

The Huawei MatePad 11’s display is also easy on the eyes. It’s certified by TUV Rheinland for low blue light. This means it’s still friendly to your eyes even during extended sessions with the device.

That extended session can mean going through the collection you’ll find on the pre-installed Huawei Books. Naturally, you can also install whatever reading app you fancy.

Fantastic for watching

Noze of WAYB on Street Woman Fighter 😍

Speaking of apps, you’ll find plenty of streaming ones you can enjoy on the MatePad 11. We’ve been on Viu quite a lot watching episodes of Slam Dunk and this new Dance variety show Street Woman Fighter — our Managing Editor is especially rooting for Noze of WAYB.

M-Pencil is included 

You know how you have to buy the stylus separately for most other tablets? Not the case with the MatePad 11. The M Pencil (2nd gen) is included in the packaging. It’s a handy tool for many things, even if you’re not art-inclined.

The M-Pencil (2nd Gen) sits magnetically on this part of the MatePad 11

We’ve used this for signing documents, precise skimming of videos we need to preview, and many more tasks. The 2ms low latency makes for a really good writing experience.

And there’s sufficient app support 

But of course, if you are on the artsy side, there’s no shortage of apps that you can use this with. When you boot the device with the clean-looking HarmonyOS 2.0, there’s a folder with suggested apps you can install made especially for taking advantage of the M Pencil (2nd gen).

But if the suggested apps aren’t to your liking, there are a bunch more that you can look for and download on the Huawei App Gallery and Petal Search. Want quick access to good design work? Get Canva. Need something reliable for note-taking? Download Nebo and jot down things to your heart’s desire!

The Smart Magnetic Keyboard is better than we expected

What surprised us the most is perhaps how you can really get things done on the MatePad 11. This is especially true when used in conjunction with the Smart Magnetic Keyboard.

Despite its tiny look, it’s a full-sized keyboard with a decent amount of travel for a satisfying typing experience. Whether you’re writing a lengthy email or composing a rant tweet that you probably shouldn’t post, this tablet-keyboard combo is made for typing productively.

This one is sold separately, but it’s worth the addition! Oh and more thing, tapping the Shift button will automatically project your Huawei phone’s screen on the tablet — a feature will dive more into shortly.

Huawei Share is convenient 

Are you the type who sends links and files to your own chat box so you can access it on your other devices? Huawei has made it so much simpler in their family of devices with Huawei Share.

Just pick the file or photo you want to share, and it’ll instantly detect the other Huawei device in the vicinity. Convenient.

Works great with your Huawei phone

If you wanna take that connection a little bit further, you can do so. Just like how it works on laptops, you can make it so that your phone’s screen is visible on the MatePad 11.

When this feature is enabled, you can control your phone without physically lifting it. Easier and faster access for messaging or if you wanna swipe on dating apps in between work tasks.

Multi-window is helpful

That floating window works not just when you connect your phone. It also works on certain apps. This way, you can easily reference other apps you might need for whatever you’re working on.

No need to leave the main app you’re working on just to take a quick glance at what’s happening on another app. This is a time-saver.

Floating apps is a godsend 

When those floating apps are inactive, they sit in the right-hand side of the screen. The most recent app you used for multi-window is the icon that will show up on top. But the rest will be right there for easy access.

This is great for toggling between multiple messaging apps. So whether you’re coordinating with your team on Slack or exchanging messages on Telegram, it’s quick and easy to do so without being completely distracted from what you’re working on.

It’s a great addition to your Huawei life 

The MatePad 11 is a big part of Huawei’s 1+8+N strategy where you can build your Huawei life starting with one of their smartphones. This extends to the secondary devices and accessories like the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro and Freebuds Pro. If you add the MatePad 11 to that equation, it makes for a seamlessly connected set of devices that’ll elevate your quality of life.

Price and availability

The Huawei MatePad 11 retails for PhP 26,999. If you purchase now, you’ll get a Dark Grey Cover (PhP 999) for free.

You can get the device on the Huawei Online Store or the official Huawei Store on Lazada and Shopee.

Google Pixel 6

After a series of leaks from many months ago, Google has finally unveiled the newest Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to the public (take note of the new ‘Pro’ branding instead of ‘XL’ from the Pixel 4 series).

If you’ve been a long-time Pixel follower, you’d know it’s the biggest Pixel redesign ever. From the modern look and feel, to that new horizontal camera strip. Everything went north from the Pixel 5’s less remarkable design language.

Without further ado, here’s our Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro unboxing in Sorta Seafoam and Cloudy White colorways.
