In a declining market, Huawei and Apple are the only companies with increased turnover. It is therefore interesting that both of them are releasing new tablets on the market. If you do not have a tablet, you should buy one of these, so you can watch a movie and series during a flight, and go online and work with spreadsheets on the move.
Apple securely occupies the throne, but Huawei is catching up with powerful hardware that is biting Apple’s Pro in the heel. However, MediaPad M5 is pricewise closer to the new iPad. They can both be purchased with 4G and Wifi. On paper, Huawei is a bit more powerful, but does not allow the use of a pen, which is the latest novelty at Apple.
iOS or Android
Whether you choose Apple or Huawei, it will hardly depend on what is ultimately behind the screen, but instead on the software you use every day. Apple stands strong with its App store, and Android continues to lag behind despite progress. However, if you are completely green, you can go for theirs.
