You’ll find the device’s front camera on the top bezel, with the MatePad in landscape orientation, which is handy for video calls. In this position, there is a volume rocker on the left side of the top edge, while the power button can be found along the top of the left edge. While the MatePad 11 has a USB-C port on the right end, there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack. This can be an unpleasant experience for those who prefer corded cans.

Battery life

The Huawei MatePad 11 has quite an impressive battery life for a tablet. While its 7,250mAh power pack doesn’t look very impressive on paper, we did notice that the device was quite likely to stop charging.

Huawei has described the MetPad’s battery life as ‘twelve hours of video playback’ – a statistic that doesn’t make much sense for most people who haven’t watched the live video for half a day.
