Honor is relaunching on the tablet market with the Pad 8. This is an entry-level model, with an attractive technical sheet and a more accessible price today, going from 349.90 euros to 299.90 euros on the brand’s official website.
After the appearance of new entrants in this market with Realme or Oppo, it’s Honor’s turn to get back into the dance and release a new Android tablet. Since its emancipation with Huawei, the Chinese brand has been developing its catalog more and more, and is making it grow today with its HonorPad 8. This is an affordable slate with a pretty solid spec sheet. And for its launch, the manufacturer is already offering it with a 50 euro reduction.
What is the Honor Pad 8?
- A tablet with a 12-inch 2K LCD screen
- An efficient entry-level chip: Snapdragon 680
- It features eight DTS: X Ultra compatible speakers
- Not to mention a comfortable 7,250 mAh battery
With a starting price of 349.90 euros, the Honor Pad 8 tablet is available in promotion at 329.90 euros on the official website, but thanks to an additional discount coupon of 30 euros, the tablet drops to 299.90 euros . To benefit from the discount coupon, all you need to do is create an Honor account.
An ideal tablet for multimedia
The Honor Pad 8 was designed for watching content. For this, it is equipped with a large 12-inch IPS LCD screen in 2,000 × 1,200 pixel definition. Despite the absence of OLED, the screen is bright with good viewing angles and a 16:9 aspect ratio. This provides good immersion in video content, especially since the tablet supports DTS: X Ultra on its eight speakers to ensure a good audio experience when watching your video content.
Honor has designed a neatly designed tablet with an aluminum coating and a matte finish on the back. It offers a good grip thanks to a fine structure, and its 6.9 mm thickness. With thin borders around the screen, it remains compact despite the 12-inch diagonal. She design makes it easy to use with one hand and to be able to take it everywhere with you without difficulty.
Sufficient daily performance
In terms of performance, it features a Snapdragon 680 processor coupled with up to 6 GB of RAM. This is the same chip offered on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11. With this entry-level chip, Honor’s tablet will respond to most classic uses such as: browsing the Internet, consulting social networks, binge watching your series favorites, even playing 3D games, but not with the graphics pushed to the maximum. On the other hand, the user experience is not really fluid on the Magic 6.1 interface based on Android 12.
On the autonomy side, the Chinese firm offers a fairly large battery of 7,250 mAh, for 14 hours of video viewing. Enough to hold the device for a day, or even more, depending on your use. No mention of compatibility with fast charging, so I hope to charge the tablet quickly. Finally, for the photo part there are two cameras, one at the front and the other at the back of 5 megapixels.
