A reliable setup is included in Honor’s tablet at the mid-range price point. The Pad 8 consists of a 7250 mAh battery, an eight-core Snapdragon 680 system-on-chip (SoC), an Adreno 610 graphics chip, 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, 128 GB of storage, a selfie- and a primary camera with a resolution of 5 megapixels each, and a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the device. The latter can have its battery fully restored to its original state in a little under two hours when using the power adapter that comes with it.
Aluminum Honor Pad 8 is lightweight and has eight speakers.
Despite the competitive pricing, Honor has equipped its tablet with a high-quality unibody casing. This case is made of aluminum, has a thickness of 7.9 millimeters, is extremely nicely produced, and weighs only 520 grams. When put up against other tablets of comparable size and weight, the Honor Pad 8’s featherweight metal shell makes it feel nearly like holding nothing at all.
The Pad 8 is an excellent choice for a multimedia tablet because of its size and capabilities. First, it can play streams in high definition because of the DRM WideVine L1 support. Second, it contains eight speakers that support DTS:X Ultra and are spread across the two short sides of the tablet to generate a robust surround sound. These speakers are scattered across the tablet.
It is possible to display up to four apps at the same time.
The in-house user interface developed by Honor, known as Magic UI 6.1, features two unique functions that make use of the tablet’s colossal screen real estate. When in multi-windows mode, the tablet can show as many as four different applications at once, each of which can be moved around and resized according to the user’s preferences. In addition, photographs and documents can be moved back and forth across the apps that have been opened.
Those who own an Honor smartphone running Magic UI 3.0 or a later version can use the Pad 8’s second unique capability. Because of this, the screen of the Honor smartphone may be mirrored on the tablet, which makes it easy to drag and drop photographs and videos from one device to the other without any difficulty.
