If we start talking about touchscreen tablets, it’s a safe bet that the iPad will be the first device that comes to mind. And it makes sense, as Apple’s product has dominated the market in a decade of existence. However, we tend to quickly forget that the competition knows how to live up to it, and sometimes even rises above the Cupertino company. By analyzing the 29 references tested by our teams and listed in our comparison, there is one area where Apple is missing out: the quality / price ratio. On this ground, the champion is Chinese. This is Huawei and its MediaPad M5 Lite tablet.
No mistake, this product is not the cheapest on the market. But for less than $ 300, you simply won’t find any other touchscreen tablet capable of achieving the capabilities of the MediaPad M5 Lite. It is also the only one in this price bracket to have collected 4 stars during its test in 2018.
Its big strength is very clearly autonomy. Almost two years after his test, no benchmark has matched his 23 h 47 min of endurance. It is still quite satisfactory in its performance today, especially since it heats up very little and has a very decent screen for its price. Where the shoe pinches is on the photo part, which is rather weak, as is often the case with this kind of product – and on the Android OS which is not always convenient on a tablet.
