Huawei Philippines has recently added a pair of new tablets to its local Android lineup, with the Huawei MatePad T 10 and MatePad T 10s now listed on its own online store.

(Update, October 17: Highly recommended! We tell you why in this article: Why the MatePad T 10s may be perfect for your child and family.)

The regular MatePad T 10 is officially priced at P6,999 (around $144 converted), while the bigger MatePad T 10s will retail at P12,999 ($268). Both are available in a Deep Sea Blue color and are currently on preorder on Lazada, Shopee, and Huawei Store Online Philippines, with shipping scheduled from October 11 for the MatePad T 10s and October 16 for the MatePad T 10.

The Huawei MatePad T 10s brings a 10.1-inch full-HD display encased in one of the most compact form factors you’ll find for a full-size tablet

The Huawei MatePad T 10s brings a 10.1-inch full-HD screen encased in one of the most compact form factors you’ll find for a full-size tablet. It has reasonably slim bezels on all sides, and as you’d expect, there is no notch or punch hole on the front for a selfie camera.

Picture quality is decent for an affordable multimedia device, and the black levels are passable in their depth, which is good news for people who are looking to watch movies on the Huawei MatePad T 10s.

This MatePad also supports the company’s TÜV Rheinland-certified Eye Comfort mode to reduce harmful blue light and offer a more comfortable viewing experience. There’s likewise an eBook mode, as well as Dark mode to make your apps look better at night.

The Huawei MatePad T 10s has a SIM-card slot for 3G or 4G connectivity

The case seems to be made of a mix of plastic and metal to keep the cost down, and unlike the regular version, the MatePad T 10s has a SIM-card slot for 3G or 4G connectivity. You can use it for calls and SMS messages; unfortunately, the tablet doesn’t support Huawei’s MeeTime feature, which lets you make high-quality video calls using Wi-Fi or mobile data.

Impressively, the MatePad T 10s boasts dual stereo speakers on both sides

Impressively, the MatePad T 10s boasts dual stereo speakers on both sides to deliver a more even sound field. The speaker setup is tuned by high-end audio manufacturer Harman Kardon, among other notable features.

We haven’t really put the tablet through its paces yet, but assuming a good-sounding speaker setup is present here, it would be a huge plus for a tablet designed primarily for media consumption. Also on one of the sides is a USB-C port that supports 10-watt charging.

On the back, the MatePad T 10s has a single 5-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture lens. It’s obviously not the sharpest we’ve seen in the category. While it is nice to see a clear camera on a tablet, it is not a necessity. The front-facing camera is 2 megapixels, which meets the bare minimum specifications for decent video calls.

Inside the Huawei MatePad T 10s is an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710A chipset mated to 3GB RAM and 64GB of storage. While not the latest on the market, the Kirin 710A is capable enough to run two apps side by side using Huawei’s App Multiplier feature. As expected, the MatePad T 10s runs Android 10-based EMUI 10.1 out of the box.

Meanwhile, the built-in battery is rated at 5,100mAh. It should be large enough to take you well into a second day unless you’re a heavy user of your tablet. In short, battery life shouldn’t be a concern. There are some power-saving options in the Settings, which might come in handy to help you save some battery.

We’ll be back soon with a follow-up article on the Huawei MatePad T 10s. Is it worth buying? If yes, what are its standout features? Do watch for that.
