    Got one of these before xmas at 209.99 inc the case...

    Lovely build and screen plus great speakers but that cpu is slow and the 4gb ram is just not enough nowadays, i know something has to give to get the specs but corners cut lead to a slow experience, takes upwards of 90 seconds to boot some days.

    No free case at this price but still a lot of tablet for the cash..

    I don't tend to switch tablets off so boot time is not a consideration for me really. Do you use the virtual ram (swap file) to bump RAM up?

    What's general performance like?

    I bought a Huawei Matepad 10.4 recently and it has 3GB ram and it skips along and has no issues at day to day tasks (browser, YouTube etc). It has a Huawei Kirin 810 CPU.

    Before I had the latest Amazon FireHD 10 and that was generally poor to medium performance wise (but low end mediatek in that). Huawei Matepad is night and day difference.

    Obviously I'm not comparing like for like when getting down to details - which makes all the difference

    Hi. Deal unexpired as note from @MrWhit "just letting you know that your deal for Honor Pad 8 is still valid - just used code to purchase and it comes up at £179.99 after discount if you can un-expire."

    Just checked and using code ABLC10 now works and should work till March 31st.

    Is this better than a ipad 9th generation?

    For media consumption definitely.
    This is a massive 12 inch tablet with 8 speakers. The screen ratio is perfect for watching movies, TV shows and YouTube videos.

    iPad is 4/3 aspect ratio with black boarders and only 2 speakers firing from the side, it's a lot faster though off course. The honour is not slow either. (edited)

    I'm in the market for an Android tablet with a decent screen and audio around this price, however I really need MicroSD card support. Currently waiting on the Lenovo Tab P11 Plus to drop to £179 like it did before Christmas. (edited)
