When it comes to affordable Android tablets by well-known brands, there aren't many choices left. Thankfully, Huawei has quite a few interesting offerings in this market and continues to release new slates on a regular basis. The latest arrivals are the MediaPad M5 Lite 10 and MediaPad T5 10, two Android slates that use the popular HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor and feature a 10.1-inch display.

In addition to the IPS display with 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and the processor mentioned above, both tablets use the same operating system, namely Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top. When it comes to the design, both feature a physical Home button and an aluminum back. We should also mention the Harman Kardon-optimized stereo speakers.

The MediaPad M5 Lite 10 also features 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage and microSD support, 8 MP cameras on both sides, and a generous 7,500 mAh battery. The slightly less powerful (and more affordable) MediaPad T5 10 sports 2 GB or 3 GB RAM and 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage, a 2 MP camera for selfies, a 5 MP main camera, and a 5,100 mAh battery.

The prices start at €199.9 (roughly US$235) for the WiFi variant of the MediaPad T5 10 with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage, going all the way to €349.9 (around US$410) for the LTE variant of the MediaPad M5 Lite 10.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
