How I Use the Huawei T3 8 Tablet

How I Use the Huawei T3 8 Tablet 

In my goal to be more intentional with life, I also try to apply minimalism to things that I own, including gadgets. Since my laptop also works like a tablet, I felt that I didn't need to keep a tablet anymore. I see that tablets are mostly used by kids for watching Youtube videos, or businesses like airlines for entertainment.  

For over a year, I only use my laptop, smartphone and camera as part of my daily life to create content, consume information, or get entertained. I didn't know I would ever need another tablet until the Huawei Mediapad T3 8 Tablet arrived at my doorstep.




Huawei Mediapad T3 8 Tablet is one of the products recently launched by Huawei. It is a tablet that combines style and power allowing me to perform tasks with convenience and elegance. 

Inside the box are The Huawei Mediapad T3 8 Tablet unit, charger, USB Data cable, SIM Eject Tool, Warranty Card and Quick Start Guide.

The Huawei Mediapad T3 8 Tablet has a super slim body that is encased in an aluminun case. It is sleek and easy to carry / keep in a small bag. It booted and run smoothly and quickly as expected, and it loaded applications fast enough for me to set it up to a quick test run. Aside from its very clean interface, I love the photos featured in the wallpaper that showcase the tablet's vivid display.

For entertainment:

Watching @netflix series and documentaries is the main entertainment I consume. Whenever I commute / get stuck in traffic, I use the Huawei Mediapad T3 8 to watch Netflix series I have downloaded. I love that I get to enjoy the viewing experience more with its vivid color in a 8.0 IPS Display with 1280 x 800 HD Resolution.  The colors are alive and vibrant (especially when watching cartoons).

Yes, using this tablet to say, I miss talking to you
(emo of the day! haha)

The Huawei Mediapad T3 8 Tablet has a SIM Slot that can allow me to connect to the internet and stream movies wherever I am. No need to rely on wifi connectivity, or hotspot my mobile data (which is the case when using a laptop).

I am in a very colorful environment, 
but the Huawei T3 8 Tablet screen still looks vibrant

For meeting and presentation: 

Sleek, compact and reliable, the Huawei Mediapad T3 8 is pre-installed with Sound Recorder and Notepad which makes one ready for quick meetings. Although I am traditional when it comes to writing down notes (I still keep a journal / notebook), I use sound recorder especially during meetings and interviews to record important notes. Having Huawei Mediapad T3 as a voice recorder frees my mobile phone for receiving other important messages.  The Huawei Mediapad T3 8 can also be installed with Microsoft Office which you can use to make presentations during small business meetings. It easily starts up, loads presentations quickly, and easy to carry.

For quick browsing: 

As I spend more hours in the kitchen learning new, affordable and healthy recipes, the Huawei Media T3 8 Tablet is perfect for browsing recipes or watching cooking vlogs. Its size is perfect to read text and browse pages while whipping a new meal. My only concern (just like with any other tablets in the market) is, I need a separate stand for it. I wish the design would allow the tablet to stand on its own.

Final Verdict

The Huawei Mediapad T3 8 Tablet does the job of a tablet with its big screen that features vivid colors and display, and battery life of 4800 mAh. It is sleek, light and easy to carry - although a little fragile on the hands.  It incorporates a high- performance quad-core-processor and supports 4G, 3G, 2G and Wi-Fi data connections which makes everyday life easier for connectivity.

Decent cameras to capture moments

The camera is just fine for capturing basic photos and videos (5 MP and auto focus on rear camera, and 2 MP and fixed focus on front camera). For someone like me who mostly use a camera to take photos, I have a different standard of quality when it comes to gadget cameras. It is expected that people won't buy a tablet for photography, but it is nice to have these features give decent output. I think the photos can still be enhanced when edited, but I like that the front-view camera don't yield a "too filtered" photo.

The tablet can be a smudge magnet. You can see fingerprints on the screen - something that you don't want to leave if you are out to commit a crime Hehe. As I am used to working with only a mobile phone, I had to make adjustments on how I carry and handle tablets. But that is just a minor personal concern.

I would recommend this tablet to students, and for those who need extra gadget for their kids and parents. 

The Huawei Mediapad T3 8 Tablet is simple and basic, but does the job. 
It is currently sold at Php 6,490.
