The system seems to have conquered the users, which would explain the fact that the firm opts again for this marvel.


The MatePad SE retains the shape of other Huawei tablets: swe seem to be getting closer to the MatePad Pro release in 2020. Its back is matte and prevents the phone from slipping once on an unbalanced stand or even in the hand. It – always on the back – also includes a photo sensor and the logo of the Chinese manufacturer. Otherwise, borders located at the front of the MatePad SE are carefully reduced. Its front sensor is located at the right angle of the tablet and is not protected by a punch.

As you will have understood, it is not easy to use the front sensor in portrait mode given its location. The device’s 10.1-inch display takes up more than 79% of the total front area. On the right, we find a volume controller to boost the sound coming from the different elements (loudspeaker, microphone, keys). Similarly, 3 microphones are placed on the side, including: one above the ignition button as well as the two speakers, and the other two are located on the lower part, also integrating a USB Type-C port.

All mobile manufacturers are fighting to have competitive hardware, Huawei is not on the sidelines. Indeed, the MatePad SE offers a single 5-megapixel photo sensor (f/2.2) accompanied by a flash.

The shots taken with this device during the day give a satisfactory rendering while the night renderings remain very little usable to date. Otherwise, the front module meanwhile is equipped with a 2 megapixel camera. Note that it is not easy to take a selfie given his size. Nevertheless, it is a perfect tool for video calls, video conferences… especially in landscape mode
