Huawi Mediapad T3 10 tablet: The perfect bedside companion

I’m a creature of habit when it comes to bed time, these days.

While my wife reads a book on her iPad for a while, I tend to open up the laptop, load up Netflix or Neon and watch an episode of my current TV show – or start watching a movie – until I inevitably fall asleep, waking a few minutes later, startled, the laptop still resting on my lap.

The Huawei Mediapad T3 meant I could still maintain my bedtime routine but it was much more pleasant and comfortable compared to a hefty laptop..

With a 9.6-inch IPS display (a resolution of 1080p x 800), the T3 feels comfortable in your hands but at its price – $499 – it’s a mid-priced tablet so it’s not competing against Apple’s top-end iPads.

Running Android 7.0  (Nougat) wrapped in Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 operating system, the tablet’s display might not look as sharp as Apple’s top-end iPads (and it doesn’t as it does appear noticeably dimmer compared to a full HD panel) but it’s perfect for consuming media, be that browsing the web or watching movies or your favourite streaming service.

Designwise, thanks to the one-piece anodised aluminum body, the T3 looks smart, and won’t look out-of-place on the bedside cabinet or kitchen bench top,  but a kick-stand at the back  would have been nice when you wanted to prop the device on a table or bedside cabinet to watch Netflix or a movie. The battery had really good life but on the other toss of the coin, the tablet look a while to charge: It seemed much slower to charge than previous tablets that I’ve used.

Huawei’s Mediapad T3 10 tablet is a funny beast: It’s not a top-end device but it’s not a low-end one, either. It’s middle of the road which will be perfect if you want a good tablet for a good price.

Thanks to Huawei for loaning me the Mediapad T3 for review
