Huawei MediaPad M5 8.4" and M5 Pro 10.8" review: The best all-around Android tablets you can buy

There's no denying that the Android tablet market is dwindling as years pass by. What was once a flourishing segment filled with options on every end of the price and specs spectrum now essentially holds two distinct categories: the cheap Amazon Fire tablets and the more expensive Samsung / Huawei tablets. Even those companies' releases have slowed down to a point where we can only hope to see one nice new tablet every 12 to 18 months.

Netflix HDR support arrives on Sony Xperia XZ2, Huawei Mate 10 Pro and P20

More and more smartphones are debuting with HDR-capable displays, but actual HDR support from app developers can often take a while. Almost exactly a year ago, LG's G6 became the first device to get Netflix HDR. Since then, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, LG V30, Galaxy Tab S3, Galaxy Note8, Xperia XZ1, Razer Phone, and Galaxy S9 have been updated to support it as well. The Sony Xperia XZ2, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and Huawei P20 have now joined the lineup, meaning there are now a full ten Netflix HDR-capable Android devices.

Huawei announces MediaPad M5 tablets in 8", 10", and 10" Pro variants

Today at MWC 2018, Huawei announced its new lineup of tablets: the MediaPad M5. As the successor to the MediaPad M3 (the number 4 is considered unlucky in China so most local companies skip it), the M5 keeps the 16:10 2560x1600 display resolution, curved metal unibody, and Hi-Res audio by Harman/Kardon but upgrades the processor, RAM, and cameras. There will be 3 variants available in two sizes: an 8.4" one for portability and a 10.8" for more screen estate and stationary use. The Pro version of the latter adds an active M-Pen for note-taking and sketching.
