Please note:

The HUAWEI MatePad 10.4 runs on Android 10 Open-Source, using Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and the latest EMUI 10.1. This means that Google Mobile Services are not integrated.

Moreover, the HUAWEI MatePad 10.4 has access to many of the most popular applications via the HUAWEI Phone Clone, AppGallery and Petal Search tool. You can download the Petal Search app from the AppGallery which is a dedicated app search tool to help you find apps that you can’t locate in the AppGallery, whether from an official link or third party app store. Click here to find out more information. You can also contact Huawei’s customer service on 0800 088 6700.

The HUAWEI MatePad 10.4 continues to be covered by our manufacturer's 24 months warranty and will receive full service support accordingly.

They'll only have to last til next year. Which they can easily manage.


It's a shame that TSMC stopped them from fabricating their Kirin processor's. I do know they have a ton of backlog stock and they definitely repurpose their chips in all their products, Routers, Smartwatches, tablets, phones.

My bias view (I own a P30 and the camera is pretty wicked, it's the last mobile to have GMS?), Huawei are much better than Qualcomm in their SoC platforms - they are having asymmetrical speeds in 5G, something Qualcomm are lacking in their Snapdragon SoC atm. Qualcomm and the rest will definitely catch up though.

To me it's all politics, it's not like the US/UK/Germany/Insert Country is not spying on you. They definitely are. I couldn't care less about who though - I'm no criminal and I try keep a online footprint minimised. It's a trade war for all I see. Privacy has been long gone.

No Google it's a hard pass
Cracking price for the 64/4GB combo, no Google play on a tablet is acceptable in my opinion. Heat added 🔥

Great tablet, picked one up a month ago. Yes it doesn't have Google, but most GSM software that says it needs Google doesn't. I'm running everything that I want on it. Feel free to ask questions.

It says 18th go live so I assume it will show tomorrow?
@Dan_82 do you know if the Matepad Pro will ha e any deals from the 18th too? I missed the Currys Quidco one earlier...
What does Google not integrated mean? Is it barred from the device or can Google features be downloaded from their app store?

Thanks. Not buying it, but was interested in the description.
I know officially it doesn't have play store but can you not side load it on like with the Amazon Fire
Does anyone know if, after sideloading gms, there are any further issues or annoyances to deal with or would it then just work in the same way as any other non huawei android tablet?

You won't get Google on it. Trust me, I've tried.

Nope

Petal search is pretty good. Seems to source apk packages from Apkmirror and Apkpure

I believe there's open source alternatives of GMS like MicroG which allows some apps which use GMS libraries to work. Not all apps will work though.

Nice tablet this, but I'd be wanting a fingerprint sensor at this price point.

Getting a few extra sales in before the VFM Honor tablets come out........

They have the Huawei AppGallery, it has applications which developers can submit to their store. It's growing everyday tbh.

I'm not too sure if Huawei Mobile Services will take off (An alternative to Google's Play Services will ever grow in popularity - I don't think many people purchase Huawei devices, as a developer I can't see myself personally developing an Application so that Huawei users can use it when there isn't a lot of people using it. If the application wasn't dependent on Google Play Services, then yeah why not.).

For applications still not found, they have this app called Petal Search which will find your application online and install it for you by using sources like Apkmirror and Apkpure. Though not all applications will work as some need Google Play Services GMS.

I'm shocked how well the app stores you can get for non Google Huawei devices. My p40 Pro, I have 5 app stores which have everything apart from barclays/argos and eBay. Those are the only ones I couldn't get. The only downside is if you cast a lot to chrome cast. There's no options for it.

Why bleat on about the Google play store unavailability when both Google and Huawei specifically say it is not happening or supported?.Same thing posted on every new Huawei/Honor phone/tablet,getting tiresome.Google have too much sway over android devices,HMS could be a reasonable alternative for many people.Realistically the problems not directly the fault of either company though.

Hey, not heard/seen anything as of yet! IF there is anything, will either post or tag you
You don't even need to side load play store to get those apps. You can even download amazon appstore for those.

Not all banking apps will work. Some will check the CTS profile and see the device isn't certified by Google and this is where some banks like Barclays and Lloyds/Halifax will fail.

I know Nationwide, NatWest and Revolut don't give a toss whether it's non certified or rooted. I use them on my rooted Amazon Fire 8 which isn't certified by Google

Sideloading applications will not void your warranty. The applications are stored on the internal data partition which gets wiped on factory reset. It doesn't modify the system in any way.

Thanks for the info. This sounds like good kit for the price but small issues like these can be deal break for non technical users. Still thinking....

How did you get it to work? Please post a description or link to the method you used. And 5 minutes?

I bought the 3gb version of this tablet in a prior deal and no method I've seen works (all involve the LZPlay G app which throws up an unsupported error message).
pcgamer201417/07/2020 19:28

why is that?


Because you're buying into something with restricted app support and closed OS update support the moment you open the box. Just don't get why anyone would do it, irrespective of views on the Chinese angle. There are other tablets you could buy for similar money with GPS support.
To anyone considering buying this and thinking Play installation will be a breeze as far as I know you cannot install Play/GMS on this model. I read a comment in the earlier deal saying it was easy but that was unfortunately very misleading and only after buying the tablet I realised it didn't work. Tried it a good few times, looked for solutions and went on to find this article:

mightygadget.co.uk/you…ay/

Other older Huawei devices can still use the LZPlay method, but not this one.

So while its a good tablet for its hardware, but you will not be able to install GMS/Play unless someone has or does figure out a different method than the LZPlay one.

Also, it doesn't have a gyroscope, though specs say it does.

Not too sure whether using a 10 inch tablet is suitable for navigation purposes?

I do understand that geolocation is important in other aspects though and a bit of a shame that similarly priced tablets will have GPS and better Google support.

I'm happy with my Huawei P30, although it runs Google Play Services - I've been recieving monthly Google patch updates (just today as well July 2020). I'm pretty happy with their OS support.

If you find it so tiresome on every related thread why do you read them? Surely it's better to just not click on them and get on with your day?

Genuine questions by the way.

I'm a little bit confused here, I'm under the impression that (with regards to the 'navigational purposes' part of your comment) the comment you're responding to is using the acronym 'GPS' to mean 'Google Play Services' (Or 'Google Play Store') rather than 'Global Positioning System'
In my opinion better take a cheapest ipad for £300 than tablet without google play.

I will try to put this perhaps a bit more in context,I have a Honor 10 if it lacked Google services I would not have bought it.Toyed with getting P40 or Honor 30 for example but wont as I cant/wont jump through hoops to do what I want.People can and do find loopholes and workarounds,more power to them,not for me.Also dont see the point of continually complaining about the lack of Google services when fully aware for the present time they dont officially exist.This any better explanation as to my previous comment?.Genuine answer.

Yeah GPS. Have you seen people use a tablet for navigation. It's pretty ridiculous in a car
