The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 Tablet: low battery life is now a thing of the past

For some reason, many people tend to pay more attention to aspects like design, display, and camera capabilities when looking for a new tablet. However, battery life – one of the biggest factors that affect user experience – is often not considered. 

As a company that leads the way in creating smartphone devices that flaunt a robust battery life to ensure an optimised user experience, Huawei has ensured that this imperative feature is used in its tablets too, regardless of whether the device is a flagship or an entry-level. Power and design are nothing without a dependable battery life. This is why, in addition to its sleek, minimalist design and advanced octa-core chipset, the new HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet is fitted with a 5100mAh high capacity battery, to power the device for hours of uninterrupted entertainment and learning.


Unrivalled Battery Life

The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet’s advanced battery is crucial for those who use it for tasks like presenting product information at a meeting or completing customer surveys. It is equally important for those who use it for education, like young school kids who continue to learn remotely, as well as those night owls who use their evenings to unwind and relax while watching their favourite series. A long battery life ensures that these types of users do not need to charge their device too often, making work, play and learning more efficient and seamless.


Battery life is mainly determined by the battery capacity, but power efficiency plays a key role too. The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet is powered by an octa-core processor, resulting in remarkable processing speeds and power efficiency. This allows users to run multiple items on their device at once, while not consuming too much power. All of these elements enable you to enjoy up to 12 hours of continuous video playback continuously and can be used for three days from one charge. And if you don’t usually need to watch videos or use high power consumption apps, the device can last up to a staggering 600 hours on standby.



The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet is pre-installed with EMUI10. This latest interface enables users to enjoy a truly intelligent experience. It is also equipped with a Facial Unlock sensor so the user can unlock and access the device quickly just by looking at the screen. This feature is usually reserved for high-end flagship devices, illustrating that price doesn’t always determine value. EMUI10 also features improved system response speeds so you can launch or switch between apps smoothly and seamlessly.


The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 also comes pre-installed with HUAWEI AppGallery, where users can download a wide range of apps and Huawei’s self-developed apps such as HUAWEI Video to offer a rich content experience for everyone in a one-of-a kind tablet.


Stylishly compact and mobile

 The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet is a sleek, lightweight device that has been created to fit comfortably in one hand, leaving the other hand completely free. This comfort is enhanced by the device’s curved design that blends the edge into a curve, creating an easy-to-carry frame, allowing users to enjoy the pristine 8-inch display wherever they are.


The device’s ergonomic design is conducive to multitasking, enabling users to hold the tablet and video chat with friends and family in one hand, while typing a text message with the other. The HUAWEI MatePad T 8 tablet’s lightweight nature also makes it extremely easy to pop into your bag if you feel like taking it with you to your favourite café to catch up on your weekly series, or enjoy a good read with the eBook mode that displays content in a paper-like effect, ensuring eye protection while providing a great reading experience all at the same time. Either way, the 80% screen-to-body ratio will immerse you in an unrivalled viewing experience for hours on end.
