Honor Pad 8 review

GSMArena Team, 18 October 2022.

Introduction and specs

Honor's largest tablet to date, the Pad 8, comes with a massive 12-inch display and a promising 8-driver speaker system, making for a compelling media gobbling offering. It doesn't hurt that it manages to fit everything in a reasonably lightweight package that's also pretty handsome.

Worthy of note on the spec sheet is the Snapdragon 680 chipset and the 7250mAh battery. The tablet runs Android 12 with a layer of in-house MagicUI on top and, importantly, has a fully functional Google app suite, unlike its Huawei counterparts.
