The budget-friendly tablet offers an 8-inch LCD and has relatively thick bezels on the sides. This makes it quite easy to hold in any orientation.

The Huawei MatePad T8 comes with a single 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. This budget-friendly tablet offers a good camera for its price. We shouldn’t expect much at this price point, but the cameras are good enough for online classes and video conferencing.

It is powered by the Octa-core MediaTek MT8768 SoC and is paired with IMG GE8320 GPU and 2GB of RAM. It offers decent performance but it shouldn’t be compared with the phones in the same price range.
