Reviews for the Huawei MatePad T8

80.5% Huawei MatePad T8 Tablet Review - Is the 99-Euro (~$117) tablet worth it? | Notebookcheck
The Huawei MatePad T8 is a sub-100-Euro (~$118) slate. This is why certain compromises had to be made hardware-wise. If you only had the specifications sheet of the MatePad T8 in front of you, you would probably think it was a tablet from 2017, not 2020.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
