Tablets have enjoyed a resurgence this year as millions of Filipinos contend with the new normal and the challenges of blended/online learning. Government-mandated safety rules put in place for the protection of our kids and ourselves have made it buying a laptop or a tablet a must these days. Unfortunately, choosing the right tablet for your family is incredibly difficult nowadays because there are few well-known companies that make quality tablets.
Huawei is one of the few players in the game that still offers value-for-money tablets that won’t break the bank. Their latest offering, the MatePad T 10, is a great choice for families looking for an all-around tablet that can be used for both work and play. Here are 5 reasons why you should pick this baby up:
Metal chassis makes for better longevity
A tablet meant for home use usually gets banged around a lot, especially when it’s being passed around and used by younger members of the family. That’s not going to be a big problem for the MatePad T10, thanks to its rigid, metal body. The mostly metal construction also gives the tablet a premium look and feel, so you’re essentially getting a durable product that looks good on the outside.
Big display for watching movies and e-learning
The MatePad T 10 has a 9.7-inch HD display that’s big enough to use for our new normal. Text is easily readable on it, and you’re getting excellent colors and details despite the resolution being just HD.
Once your kid is done for the day, you can log out of his Zoom class and enjoy the display’s large screen by kicking back and watching your favorite movies on the streaming platform of your choice.
The display is also TÜV Rheinland certified and reduces harmful blue light, protecting you and your kid’s eyes even with continuous daily use.
There’s also an eBook mode available that makes it better for you and your kids to read their modules, which turns the screen grey and simulates the experience of reading a real book.
Loudspeakers and surround sound
The MatePad T 10 has great audio for a tablet of its size, thanks to the dual-speaker system on the tablet. There are two speakers on either side of the frame, which is enhanced by HUAWEI Histen 6.1 technology. The dual speakers make it easier for kids to understand what their teacher is saying during their Zoom class, and makes watching movies even better.
A safe space made especially for kids
The MatePad T 10 has a special function for kids dubbed Kids Corner. This allows your kids to safely explore tha tablet using age-appropriate content, allowing you, the parent, to set boundaries on what they can and cannot access.
A gateway to thousands of apps thanks to EMUI and AppGallery
The MatePad T 10 is powered by Huawei’s EMUI 10.1, allowing it to interface smoothly with other devices in Huawei’s ecosystem like their Mate, P, and nova series of phones, as well as their MateBook series of laptops. EMUI 10.1 also allows the tablet to display two windows of the same app when held horizontally thanks to the Huawei App Multiplier, allowing you to easily check items in online sites like Lazada, for example.
The phone has access to Google Play, and if that wasn’t enough, you can also explore Huawei’s own app store, AppGallery, where you can find thousands of apps that you can use with the tablet. If you still can’t find the app you need you can use Huawei’s Petal Search Widget to quickly look for that one app you need.
Huawei’s new MatePad T 10 is a great general-purpose tablet for the entire family and doesn’t cost that much to own too. Huawei is pricing it at just Php 6,999.
