Honor Pad 8 review
Introduction and specifications
Honor’s largest tablet to date, the Pad 8, comes with a massive 12-inch screen and a promising 8-driver speaker system, making for a compelling media-immersive proposition. It doesn’t hurt that it manages to fit everything in a reasonably lightweight package that’s also pretty good looking.
Worth noting on the spec sheet is the Snapdragon 680 chipset and 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.
