The Huawei MatePad T10s is the company’s most recent Android tablet, which was released in Malaysia. The “s” version of the MatePad T10, which is not to be confused with MatePad T10, has various enhancements, and we’ll be putting it to the test to see if it’s any good. The Huawei MatePad T10s, with a price tag of RM999, might be a strong challenger in the mid-range tablet market. But first, let’s talk about the specifications.
The Huawei MatePad T10s is only available in one color: Deepsea Blue. While this isn’t a particularly exciting color, it does look excellent. The tablet has curved edges on all four sides and fits well in the hands. The 450g weight of the tablet is also commendable. It isn’t really heavy, and I think it would be ideal to take in a backpack or handbag.
The display is on the front, and it is surrounded by some very thick bezels. Two microphones, as well as the power and volume buttons, are located on the top of the device. The first speaker grille is on the left, while the USB Type-C connector, 3.5mm audio jack, second speaker grille, and SIM tray slot are on the right. That’s right, you read that correctly. The Huawei MatePad T10s has LTE connectivity, allowing you to access mobile data and make phone calls.
The Huawei MatePad T10s is equipped with a Kirin 710A processor, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. I was expecting minor slowdowns because the processor is indeed a mid-range chip for me. Although 4GB of RAM might have increased performance slightly, 64GB is more than adequate for my needs. A microSD card can be inserted into the SIM tray slot to add 512GB of storage.
Apps open quickly, but information takes a long time to load — as one would expect from a mid-range processor. In terms of gaming, you’ll notice some screen tearing in between, as well as slow loading speeds. However, you will still be able to play your games on a larger, more beautiful screen.
The Huawei MatePad T10s is a productivity tablet with a 2MP front-facing camera and a 5MP rear-facing camera. The cameras aren’t great; they’re prone to overexposure and the viewfinder is a little sluggish. The cameras, on the other hand, are ideal for video calls and speedy document capture.
The Huawei MatePad T10s’ dual stereo speaker system, tuned by Harman Kardon, can be incredibly loud without distortion. The treble can be a little too strong at times, but the mids are crystal clear, making vocals sound lovely and crisp. When it comes to bass, especially when listening to EDM music, you can hear a good thump when the bass lowers.
For the best experience, I keep the volume at approximately 20% most of the time. Of course, if I’m doing some work and need to listen to music, I’ll turn up the level to approximately 50%, which is already very high.
A big 5,100mAh battery powers the Huawei MatePad T10s. I used the table for more leisure purposes like social media surfing, reading an article, gaming, online shopping, watching a video, and listening to music most of the time.
The tablet can last for two and a half days on a single charge when I simply use Wi-Fi. When you insert a SIM card and use the tablet for the same amount of time on mobile data, your tablet lasts around a day and a half. It takes roughly 2 hours to charge your tablet from zero to full using USB Type-C.
