Review: Huawei MatePad 11 is a tablet designed for work as well as entertainment

Huawei is currently facing a number of challenges regarding US sanctions, as a result of which quite a few devices are being added to the market under the company’s banner. However, with a second breath, I must add that When you add some equipment, it is worth it. Let me share my experience with the Huawei MatePad 11, a tablet that was only recently introduced.

Huawei MatePad 11 Packaging, Design and Build

The tablet itself comes with a charger that supports 22.5W fast charging. Of course, this is a USB Type C charger. You will be searching in vain for additional equipment in the package. However, on my second breath, I must say I also brought a keyboard for my tablet. The reason is that I generally wanted to use the tablet as a work tool to replace my laptop on the road or in the field. Don’t say more about the fact that the keyboard also serves as a protective case.


The design and implementation of the tablet itself is at a high level and it is difficult for the company to blame anything. It’s probably just because the tablet isn’t made of fancy materials like a metal or glass back. it is a pity. The body of the device is made of plastic. However, the second breath must be added that it does not look cheap and at the same time, thanks to the plastic body, the tablet is also light. However, that doesn’t change my overall positive feeling from the body and device design. As for the controls, on the side walls of the tablet we find the power button, the volume control buttons and of course the USB C output. Do not forget, There is also a memory card slot for up to 1 TB.

Compact and elegant body

by the way, The dimensions of the tablet are 253.8 x 165.3 x 7.3 mm and its weight is 485 grams. The structure of the device, even with the keyboard, is compact and easy to carry. It should also be noted that The screen can be placed in two different modes, Thanks to this, it is possible to work with the tablet relatively comfortably, even on the knees.

But what I missed about the keyboard is the touchpad. It is simply missing, and when working with text when you need to modify a letter in a word, for example during a train trip, I often delete it completely and type it again. On the other hand, a pen can solve this problem. However, it costs another hundred and I admit that I’ll already be thinking of a smaller laptop when you add the price – tablet + keyboard + touch stylus. However, in order not to offend the tablet, you can use Bluetooth technology to connect a wireless mouse to it to solve the problem. Otherwise, the keyboard works fine overall. The keys themselves, as you can see below, protrude slightly from the body and at the same time are large enough to be able to type longer texts. You can also use the keys to use different keyboard shortcuts, as with computers.

Then, I must say that The frames around the screen are very thin and did not bother me when working with the device. For me, it’s perfectly wide, and I must add that when working with a tablet without a keyboard, the tablet was “something worth holding” without accidentally pressing the screen. In this case, Huawei “hit” the ideal frame size.

As for the appearance Equipment as a whole, so I have to mention it It looks very elegant to me and the keyboard with the case also lands on the tablet. However, what I have to complain about about the tablet is that the tablet lacks a fingerprint scanner, which is a shame. However, you can use face recognition technology, which works on the basis of 2D scanning. This means that face scan security is not the best solution, so I prefer to use password unlock or another Bluetooth device.

120Hz large screen, but without OLED technology

The MatePad 11 offers a 10.95-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. Among other things, it has a display frequency of 120 Hz, which you will appreciate, for example, when scrolling or watching movies and series. On the other hand, I have to say that I am a big fan of OLED technology and miss it here. However, this is not something drastic that would really discourage me from buying a tablet. The screen is of sufficient quality and I am not afraid to say that it will outperform some of the available OLED panels. The black is the same black as in the IPS LCD, the viewing angles are good and the colors are vivid. But I was waiting for an OLED, just like the MatePad Pro 12.6 “. By the way, what surprised me in the positive sense is the presence of the notification diode next to the front selfie camera.

I would also like to mention The ambient light sensor is located in the left side panel. I would like to draw your attention to this due to the fact that when working with a tablet, if you hold it in your hand, it will interfere, and as a result the screen brightness may change. On the other hand, if you hold the tablet vertically, its placement is perfect.

A device designed for multitasking

Regarding the display and in combination with HarmonyOS 2.0, I have to say that The device is designed for multitasking. Multi-window mode allows you to open several applications at once on the tablet screen. To access this feature, swipe from the right side of the screen to the center. Then a list of applications that you will be able to continue working with will open. The performance of the device is really smooth and the device can handle whatever you do on it. The tablet excels at gaming. As you may have guessed, the tablet is missing Google Mobile services, which can be discouraging to many. I admit, in the case of the tablet, I did not miss Google services. Huawei has done a lot of good bots in this regard, and if you don’t want to use narrowly defined apps, like some banks (which you can always solve through the web interface), you won’t even notice the lack of apps. generally You will appreciate Petal’s serviceYou just enter what you need and the system will then deliver the application installation packages.

by the way, If you also use other Huawei devices, you will also appreciate the wide possibilities of collaboration between these devices. For example, with a few clicks, you can mirror your smartphone on the tablet screen, which you can control from the tablet interface, among other things. To use this feature, you must be logged in with the same Huawei account on both devices and be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This feature is called Super Device.

The performance of the device is among the highest

Although the MatePad 11 is technically a weaker device than the MatePad Pro 12.6, in practice you won’t feel much of it. device to Snapdragon 865 . processorIt is made by 7nm technology process and can also I also boast 6GB of RAM. The Adreno 650 graphics chip, which is one of the best ones, should also be mentioned. I should also add that the device is Equipped with UFS 3.1 . storage type, which is currently the latest standard for memory modules available in smartphones or tablets. This standard refers to the speed of reading and writing data from/to storage. In other words, the tablet is able to playfully handle even the most demanding operations without actually sweating.

As for additional contact, it will not only be a pleasure to attend Bluetooth 5.1, ale i Wi-Fi 6. On the other hand, the transmitter must support the latest Wi-Fi standard, if you want to use it actively. What freezes is the lack of LTE connectivity. In other words, you only connect to the Internet while navigating through the hotspot from your smartphone.

The sound of the device is great

Due to the screen size and the display frequency of 120Hz, of course, I am the tablet Also widely used for watching videos. In this case, the sound also plays an important role, since I can hardly read the tablet. Offers four built-in speakers with Harman Kardon technology. In other words, the sound is impressive and the bass helps as well as the wide vocal range. There is a lot of detail across the spectrum and the sound is well balanced. Here you will fully enjoy the sound. However, I must say that someone will miss the 3.5mm headphone output.

The MatePad 11 offers above average battery life

The battery of the device has a capacity of 7,250 mAh and I must say it is not small, but let’s face it, it is not much more than that. I was very pleased with the battery life, which is really worth it. Although the manufacturer states that the endurance is somewhere around 40 hours in “performance mode,” if we switch to “normal consumer mode,” the battery life will quickly drop. But it is not enough to talk about a weak battery. With normal tablet use, you’ll hit a level somewhere between 2pm and 4pm Depending on what you do. I was able to work with the tablet for more than a working day and let it do that. Working with a text editor, Spotify, I watched videos and of course ran on the Internet. I actually charged the device until lunch the next day. In other words, The tablet will not leave you in trouble, not even on long trips or business meetings. Not to forget, I worked with the tablet indoors and thus with brightness at an average level. By the way, thanks to the 22.5W charging, the battery can be charged from 0% to 20% in half an hour and charging to 100% takes about 2.5 hours.


The MatePad 11 currently costs around 440 euros, which is not a small amount. between Key Benefits This device belongs to No doubt about the performanceWhich is a completely different price on this price tag compared to the competition. In the same way and battery life at a high level. Mine The materials used are disappointing, which is excellent, but it is not metal or glass that gives the equipment a completely different “character”. On the other hand, thanks to the materials used, the weight of the device is less than 500 grams. What I have to say is that buying this tablet without a keyboard is literally a sin. The reason is that you simply have to have a keyboard to use it 100%. In other words, the “real price” is about an additional 100 euros, which is already the price of any normal laptop. However, if portability and comfort in carrying a device is important to you, then it’s not all about what it is, then the MatePad 11 with Keyboard is the perfect companion. Do not talk more about the fact that the battery life is not comparable to any laptop, it is far ahead of them.

For the operating systemSo even though it’s not Android and I’ll admit, I was scared My fears were unfounded. In other words, I have to say that Huawei has solved the problem of no Google Play services for mobile with full alternatives (at least for tablets). So, if your only concern is software, get rid of them.
