natural colors and balanced brightness. The MatePad 11 can also shoot videos up to 4K with decent quality. However, it tends to overexpose highlights and underexpose shadows, which means its dynamic range is limited. The problem is grainy images at night without a dedicated night mode.

Display and sound

If the keyboard is not available, there is a Folio case that can protect your tablet and act as a stand. Meanwhile, M-Pencil Gen.2 provides
powerful drawing capabilities and other stylus features. It also supports other accessories such as a wired or wireless mouse for the full laptop form factor.


The Huawei MatePad 11 has an elegant and practical design. It has a simple matte back, highlighted by a camera module and the Harman/Kardon logo.

When the tablet is in landscape mode, its power and volume buttons are located in the upper left corner, and the USB Type-C port is on the right side. There are two speakers on either side, making up its impressive four-speaker four-speaker audio system.

The front of the device is almost entirely occupied by a 10.95-inch display. It is surrounded by a uniform, narrow bezel about a quarter of an inch in size. That's enough for a thumbs-up, and the center of the top bezel houses a single selfie camera.
