Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 review – A creative tablet with a high-precision stylus

Huawei has created a very good tablet with the MatePad Pro 13.2. The new NearLink-based M-Pencil, in particular, makes a big difference when precise, low-latency work is required. The optional keyboard is definitely one of the best in its class and complements the tablet as a complete business solution.

As for the screen, it is a bit annoying that the promised 1000 cd/m² is not achieved in HDR playback, but otherwise it is very pleasing to the eye and a well-balanced screen.

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 offers an attractive package, and its biggest drawback is its lack of software.

The biggest criticism Huawei faces is its integrated SoC. Although it offers enough performance to run the system smoothly, it's too weak in our eyes for a four-figure priced tablet, as the Kirin 9000W falls in the mid-range.

The lack of Google services at this point should also be noted. Although AppGallery also offers many apps, it has big gaps. Big players are missing, especially in the creative field. Cross-installation via Petal Search or GBox is possible, but is always associated with security and data protection risks.

If you're looking for a tablet for creative use, Huawei is a must-have in terms of technology. The MatePad Pro 13.2 also performs well when it comes to media playback and is ideal as a desktop device. So, if you don't need Google services and feel comfortable installing apps through third-party platforms, you can use them without hesitation.

Alternatives that support Google services are mainly the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra but also the much cheaper Lenovo Tab P12, if you're mainly looking for a large screen. On Apple's website, the iPad Pro 12.9 is the top choice.
