Let’s face it. Android tablets have become a somewhat niche product these days. Usually, you’ll find one used by children for their games and videos. I have even seen a few who really use it like a phone.

Huawei MediaPad T3 8.0 FeaturedHuawei is one of those companies which still show focus in this market, and the MediaPad T3 is a perfect case in point.

Considered as a budget tablet, MediaPad T3 is primarily geared for basic day to day use. That means social media, music, video, maybe email, and some light games. Some of its apps are also designed for children.

Huawei MediaPad T3 8.0 Review
Our Verdict
If you need a simple, straightforward, child-friendly, and most importantly affordable tablet, the Huawei MediaPad T3 8.0 is a good choice. It's built-well, has chilld-friendy apps, and performs decent for any light day to day task. Oh, and not to mention it can game as well. Now, the user experience isn't the smoothest out there. The processor may not be the latest, but it does the job. As for the camera, it's decent, but don't expect much. The software is ridiculously outdated, but again, it works. Then there's the battery life, which is nothing short of stellar. For PhP6,490, it's a tablet that does the job, but does not excel at doing it.
