Honor Pad 8 review
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.

This is just racism but for tech brands at this point. I've had the xiaomi pad 5 and I use it for digital drawing. The tablet literally makes me money. I've had no problems with it and was able to use split screen most of the time. Batter...

Over in the UK where I am, the Honor is £270 and the Xiaomi about £370. That's a fair gap between the two.
