The Huawei matepad t10 is a tablet computer with an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor. The screen measures 10 inches diagonally, and it’s available with 16GB or 32GB of storage.
Two models differ in the wireless modem installed: one uses the ZTE Corporation (0763) HUAWEI Mobile Connect – Multi-Model Management SW version V1.0.621 (L090C500); while another uses Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. (QCT) QMV7A 4G LTE Software Data Card SMS200 – 3GPP release 8 (Sierra Wireless EM7345).
Both variants have 9 hours of battery life, Bluetooth 4.1 support, stereo speakers, and USB 2.0 expansion ports.
There is a power button on the top left of the tablet, volume buttons on its right side, and a micro USB port on its bottom line for charging purposes. There are two speakers at the back, which you can see in this image. These are located above an Intel logo etched onto the back cover, and there is an additional camera lens next to the front-facing one.
The matepad t10 itself is quite thick, measuring at 11.9mm, but it weighs 425g, making it light enough to carry around with ease. It’s also super easy to hold thanks to its rounded corners and edges that measure at just 0.5cm wide in some spots.
It feels like a well-built device in general, and we’re happy to see that Huawei and Intel decided not to make any compromises when it comes down to making this tablet look stylish; plus, you get 2 years of warranty coverage from Huawei if you register the product on their website.
Sound and visuals
The MatePad T10 LTE has a 9.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and a pixel density of 224 pixels per inch.
For its price range, the 16:10 HD Display is reasonable, and the quality is adequate for browsing the web, checking social media feeds, and watching YouTube videos on the Huawei browser. For those who will use it as an ebook reader, there are choices to modify the screen’s colour temperature to fit your preferences, and it comes with the Eye Comfort feature, which filters out blue light to prevent eye fatigue.
On the other hand, I primarily used it to read comic books and graphic novels, and the display size was ideal for reading all of the dialogues without zoom in.
The display may be quite bright, but it suffers in direct sunlight. When it comes to viewing angles, it’s better to look at the display from the front. The display can accommodate up to 10-points of simultaneous touches, and I’ve had no issues with taps or gestures because they are reliably registered.
The MatePad T10s’ Harman Kardon loudspeakers were one of my favorite features. The MatePad T10 doesn’t have the same speakers as the MatePad T10, but it does have stereo speakers that are quite powerful and have good sound quality. On either side of the tablet near the base are two huge 1620 large sound cavity speakers that deliver stereo sound that can easily fill a small room. Use a pair of headphones and plug them into the 3.5mm jack if you want an even more immersive experience.
The sound from the speakers, on the other hand, is easily muted by just placing one’s fingers on them.
When headphones are used, Huawei Histen 6.0 is activated, allowing for a 9.1 surround sound speaker system and 3D sound effects for a truly immersive music experience. This 3D audio is fantastic for viewing movies and ASMR vlogs. That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this article.
