Best Huawei tablets

First of all we talk about some of these most important models that the brand currently has in its catalog. Thanks to them you can get a good impression of what the brand has to offer consumers in terms of tablets.

Huawei MediaPad SE

Another of the most recent models of the Chinese brand in this mid-range of its tablets. A model that has some aspects in common with the previous tablet. Has a screen 10,4 inch size IPS, with FullView resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a 16:10 ratio. Good screen when viewing content on it.

Inside it, an eight-core Kirin 659 processor awaits us, accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, which we can expand through microSD up to 256 GB of capacity. Its battery has a capacity of 5.100 mAh. As operating system it uses Android Oreo as standard.

In this case, its front camera is 5 MP while the rear camera is 8 MP. Therefore, we can use them for photos or when scanning documents with it without too many problems. In general these cameras perform well. This tablet is somewhat more modest than the first, but a good option to take on a trip and view content on it in a simple way.

Huawei MatePad T10s

A great tablet for its value for money is this MatePad T10s from Huawei. Your screen is 10.1 inches, which is the standard size on small screens for mini-size laptops, but slightly larger than usual on tablets that are over 9 inches. The resolution is FullHD, which is already good on 15-inch laptop screens and even better on smaller ones.

As you would expect in any smartphone or tablet worth its salt, the MatePad T10s has a main camera and a front camera or for selfies, being the first of 5Mpx and the second 2Mpx. They are not the best numbers on the market, but they do include interesting functions, such as 6 eye protection modes and a TÜV Rheinland certificate that reduces the effects of blue light, among other things.

With respect to other tablets with similar prices, it stands out for being built in a metal body, which makes it increase a bit in weight, but staying at 740gr and 8mm thick. Inside we find medium components, such as the Octa-Core Kirin 710A processor or dual stereo speakers, which considerably improves the sound. As for the memories, has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The operating system that is included by default in this Huawei is Android 10, more specifically the EMUI 10.0.1 based on the penultimate version of the operating system for Google mobile devices. But beware, important: DOES NOT include Google services, including the Google Play store, so those who choose this tablet have to know how to add them or look for alternatives.

Huawei MatePad SE

We start with this model, a mid-range Huawei tablet, which is good value for money. It has a screen size of 10,4 inches, with a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1200 pixels. In addition, it has various modes of use, which allow your eyes not to get tired when using it.

It comes with an eight-core processor, in addition to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256 GB. We have both a front and rear camera on the tablet, both 8 MP. What's more, its battery has a capacity of 7.500 mAh, which promises good autonomy at all times. It also has fast charging.

Another of the highlights of this Huawei tablet is that it has 4 Harman Kardon Certified Stereo Speakers. So the audio is a very neat aspect. In general, it is a good tablet with which to be able to consume content in a simple way. Good design and easy to use.

Huawei MatePad Pro

This fourth tablet on the list is another of the best known in the Chinese brand's catalog. It is somewhat smaller than the ones we have seen so far. Because in your case you have a 10,8-inch IPS screen with 2K resolution. Inside, a very powerful Kirin 990 processor awaits us.

It has a 6 GB capacity RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, which we can expand up to 1TB via microSD without any problem. As for the battery,  has a capacity of 7250 mAh. Still, it promises a good autonomy for users, thanks to its combination with the processor.

The two cameras of the same are 13 MP, which also allow video recording at 1080p / 60fps. A good tablet, somewhat smaller, but powerful. Therefore, it can be used at work or studies, but also to consume content or navigate in total comfort.

Huawei MatePad 10.4 New Edition

When we look for a cheap tablet, we have two options: look for something simply bad brand or something like the MatePad 10.4 from Huawei. Without promotions, they already have a very interesting price, but if we buy it in a specialized store We can find it for less than € 300. And what will we get for that price? A very capable mid-range tablet for practically any task.

The screen size of the MatePad 10.4 is 10,4 inches, which is less than the normal size, but is also an inch larger than the mini size ones. Its bezels are totally mini, since it has ultra-thin sides of only 4.9mm. Of what is the front, 80% is screen. It also stands out for its design, with a metal body with rounded edges that will make us feel that we are facing a premium tablet, although all this, together with the weight of only 460gr, is what is on the outside.

Inside, things are more discreet, with 128GB of storage which will be enough for those who want to consume content and save a few files, but insufficient for those who want to save a lot of music, videos or heavy games. And speaking of games, the other memory is 4GB of RAM, which will be more than enough to move most mobile games, it will not be fair to move a heavier game. The power section would be completed by MediaTek's Octa-Core chipset.

This tablet it also does not have Google services, so we will not be able to install software from Google Play, for example, so users who acquire it must know an alternative. But, hey, for the price they're asking us, I think it's a lesser evil.

Characteristics of some Huawei tablets

fullview screen on huawei tablet

The Chinese technology giant, Huawei, not only stands out for its telecommunications technologies, it has also known how to attend very well to every detail of many other products, such as its tablets. It shows in every detail, with really remarkable features on the table:

  • 2K FullView display: Some Huawei tablet models mount a panel with a 2K resolution, which gives them great image quality and high pixel density, even when used up close. In addition, they use FullView technology, with a greater width due to having very thin frames. Some manufacturers also call this technology "infinity screen", but they refer to the same thing.
  • Harman Kardon Quad Stereo SpeakersIf you love to enjoy quality sound for your series, movies, streaming, or your music, you will love these tablets, since they mount stereo speakers with a quadruple transducer, for a powerful and rich sound. In addition, the sound system chosen for these tablets is not just any, but it is the Harman Kardon brand, one of the most prestigious firms in this sector and which has been creating one of the best sound devices on the market since 1953.
  • Wide angle cameraAlthough many tablets do not mount quality sensors, in the case of Huawei it has equipped its tablets with wide-angle camera sensors. That is, whose focal length is shorter than that of conventional lenses. The result is an angle of view greater than human vision, for fantastic panoramic shots and landscapes.
  • Aluminum housing: Unlike other poor quality Chinese tablets, Huawei has opted for aluminum finishes. This gives them a finer and more pleasant touch, greater resistance than plastic ones, and they are especially good from a thermal point of view. This metal is a better thermal conductor than plastic, and it will act as a great heatsink, causing them to heat up less.
  • 120hz displayIf you are looking for extreme fluidity when playing games, watching movies or simply navigating the interface of the apps you use every day, Huawei tablets equipped with a 120Hz screen will delight you.

Huawei has also developed a fantastic complement for your tablet, such as your digital pen M Pen:

The digital pen is based on active capacitive technology. A utensil with a pressure sensitivity up to 4096 levels, to maximize accuracy. In addition, it is sold with a very careful design, in a metallic gray finish, and with only 50 grams of weight.

It is compatible with tablets Huawei matepad and integrates a long-lasting Li-Ion battery so you don't worry about charging for a long time. It also allows wireless charging, and links to the tablet using Bluetooth technology.

Do Huawei tablets have Google?

Huawei managed to get there earlier in 5G, and be a pioneer in this new technology. Faced with the inability of American brands to compete with Huawei's infrastructure, the US government moved its machinery to start a geopolitical war with China, and with the famous veto imposed on this firm.

In principle, the restrictions would have dire competencies for Huawei, but then they have not been implemented in such a harsh way. The only repercussion it has had for this type of tablets is that the system comes without the GMS services and pre-installed Google apps, although it is still a basic Android and can be installed manually. Therefore, zero dramas in that sense. If you need Google Play and other services, they can be installed and are fully compatible.

In general, you will not need them, Huawei has developed its own alternative services called HMS (Huawei Mobile Service), similar to GMS. These services include a great alternative app store called AppGallery. There you will find Googlefier, Gspace, or LZPlay, which are apps with which you can access Google services on Huawei devices.

For example, in order to have Google Play, you can follow these steps:

  1. Download the Googlefier app from AppGallery.
  2. Launch Googlefier
  3. Configure the permissions that tell you what the app needs to work.
  4. Follow the instructions of your assistant.
  5. At the end, you will have Google services and you will be able to log into your account.

Is EMUI the same as Android?

huawei tablet with emui

Many brands, such as Samsung (One UI), Xiaomi (MIUI), LG (Velvet UI), etc., instead of using Android as is, add a customization layer to improve some functions or modify the appearance. But under that layer is Android. In fact, on a Samsung Galaxy, you have those layers and no one doubts that you are using Android as the operating system. Something similar happens in Huawei devices, only this firm calls it EMUI.

EMUI It is simply that layer of customization that exists on Android, but that does not detract from compatibility. Everything that works on pure Android works on these layers as well. In addition, the EMUI version also gives you clues about the Android version that is being used. For example, EMUI 8.x corresponded to Android Oreo (8.x), while EMUI 9.x was a tuned Android Pie (9.0), or EMUI 10.x an Android 10, etc.

HarmonyOS, the operating system of Huawei tablets


As you know, after the geopolitical wars of the US and ChinaOne of the companies that the White House put on the blacklist was the Chinese Huawei. The reason was that it was far ahead in terms of 5G technology, while other American companies did not have much to do. And, to slow its progress a bit, they began some restrictions for the use of certain services such as Android, GMS, etc. Therefore, Huawei had to create its own system to replace Google's:

  • How is it?: it is an operating system developed by Huawei and based on the Android source code (with multikernel, depending on the segment to which it is intended), so it will support all compatible apps (APK) with the Google system. Its interface is also very similar to Android, but it lacks Google Mobile Services (GMS), which it has replaced by HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) to bypass restrictions and give its users a functional alternative.
  • What are the differences with EMUI?: is the acronym for EMotion UI, and it is basically a custom layer created by Huawei on Android. That is, it is essentially an Android, but its interface and certain functions have been modified. In addition, the system updates are provided by Huawei itself, and may differ from the original ones for Android, both in time and in content. Visually and for usability purposes, both EMUI and HarmonyOS are quite similar, although the latter has new functions, does not allow root, and has certain apps and services of its own.
  • Can you install apps from Google Play?: yes, HarmonyOS and EMUI are fully compatible with all the apps available natively for Android. What it does not include is the Google Play store, since it has been replaced by its own store that belongs to those HMS, and which is called Huawei AppGallery. However, it is possible to install the apk from Google Play manually, even if it is not pre-installed by default. In fact, there are many tutorials for this, as can be done in FireOS, for those who prefer an alternative to the Amazon Appstore.
  • Do you have Google services?: no, it lacks MSG. That includes the Google search engine, the Chrome web browser, the Google Play store, YouTube, Google Maps, Drive, Photos, Pay, Assistant, etc. Instead use the HMS, which have alternatives such as AppGallery, Huawei Video, Huawei Music, Huawei Wallet payment platform, Huawei Cloud, its own web browser, and Celia virtual assistant, among other apps and services. That is, enough not to miss the GMS.

Is it worth buying a Huawei tablet? My opinion

The answer to whether it is worth buying a Huawei tablet is a resounding yes. This brand offers really interesting quality, technology and features, at the level of some premium models, but with a fairly competitive price.

It is one of the best ways to acquire a tablet with Great value for the price, but without the uncertainty that other lesser-known brands can bring you. Some brands that may not have a good quality of assembly, that their technical service is deficient if something happens, or that they mount components that are somewhat out of date. All that is not going to be like that in a Huawei.

In addition, some details As the quality of its finishes, its screen, its high-performance hardware, its quality sound, its OTA-upgradeable operating system, or its 5G connectivity in some of its models, make it really attractive.

The only negative point, yes  can be called negative, it is the fact that don't come with GMS pre-installed, as the default system. With HMS you have everything you need so that you do not miss Google services, so there is no need to be afraid. However, if for some very specific reason you need to use Google services, you can always install them manually.

Huawei tablets, my opinion

Buying Huawei tablets has many advantages for users. One of the most important aspects is the price. As we have already mentioned, Huawei is a brand that leaves us with tablets of all kinds, but that has low prices. Many of its tablets are cheaper than models with similar specifications, without ever being worse in terms of quality.

Besides being one of the best quality-price tablets , have been known to gain the trust of consumers with their products. Since it is one of the best-selling brands in the world, also in Spain. The good value for money of their products is something that has helped. In addition, it is easy to find them in stores. So it is not a problem for users.

In case of problems you can always go to the brand, which will replace it or repair the problem at all times. There is nothing to worry about in this regard.

Where to buy a cheap Huawei tablet

For those users interested in buying any of the tablets of the Chinese brand, the reality is that it is very easy to find them in Spain, both in stores and online. Therefore, it is a matter of choosing the most comfortable option when buying one.

  • Carrefour: The hypermarket chain sells tablets from various brands, including Huawei. I know they can buy in most stores, where you have the possibility of seeing the tablet live, being able to feel it and test it briefly. So that the user gets a good impression of it and thus knows if it is a model that fits what they are looking for.
  • El Corte Ingles: The well-known chain of stores has a good selection of tablets available, both in stores and online. Again, there is the possibility to try them and to be able to see if it is a model that fits what you are looking for at that moment. They don't have as many Huawei models as other stores, but the brand's latest tablets are usually available.

How to reset a huawei tablet

huawei tablets

The way to reset a Huawe tableti don't differ too much in the way that other brands on android they use. Resetting the tablet is something that has to be done only when it is going to be sold or if there has been a serious problem, so that everything is reset and left the same way it left the factory.

In order to do this, press and hold the volume up and power buttons for a few seconds, until a recovery menu appears. In it there are a series of options, one of which is reset or factory reset / wipe data. With the volume up and down buttons you can move one in said menu and reach that option. Then you just have to click on the power button on that option. Then it will ask to confirm and the process of resetting the Huawei tablet begins at that moment.

Huawei tablet cases


As with smartphones, it is recommended to always have a cover for use with the tablet. A tablet is a fragile device, which can be damaged by drops or bumps, especially its screen is very important and can suffer a lot of damage. Therefore, using a cover with your Huawei tablet is essential.

The selection of covers for Huawei tablets is very wide. Especially in stores like Amazon it is easy to find a huge selection. It depends on the taste of each user, the type of cover that is going to be chosen with it. Since there are several types.

We have leather cases, with lid, which are the most classic, so that the lid is opened when the tablet is used. They are resistant, of good quality and protect the entire tablet, something that is undoubtedly important. The designs are usually more classic in this sense, mostly with solid colors. But they are a great option to use. In addition, many of them can be folded, so that we can use the tablet on a table as if it were a laptop, or add the portable keyboard to it.

On the other hand, housings can be used, as in the case of telephones. There are not so many options in this regard, but they can be found in stores. They protect the entire body from it. But they allow to use the tablet in a more comfortable way in many cases. So they are a comfortable and popular option. There is usually a great variety of designs.

If you have come this far, it is that you still do not have it very clear

  1. Hello Nacho:
    I've been looking for a tablet for a long time. I had already noticed that it is the Huawei brand, I do not understand much about tablets but how they began to say that Huawei was going to give problems because I backed off. I need it for work, I'm a salesperson, is this brand still a good option?
    Thank you very much

  2. Hello Elena,

    Huawei today is a fully trusted brand, although if you buy a product of his that is not the latest generation since right now some of his devices do not have Google services so you will have to look for your life to install things like google play.

    But as I say, that does not happen in the majority of tablets that you have right now for sale. Value for money they are a good option.
