Many people have resorted to tablets to help them with their daily life routines. If you’re looking to spend a few hundred bucks on a gadget, Apple is probably not the way to go. But consider Huawei or Samsung, two of the most popular Android phone manufacturers. The two Asian tech giants continue to compete in persuading the rest of the world that they are technologically superior. Both companies produce low-cost and mid-range tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 and Huawei MediaPad M6 tablets are two potential candidates to consider. Let’s see which one is better compared.
Design and display
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is a 476g tablet that runs on Android 10. The tablet is surprisingly quite light, with a firmer and nicer metal chassis. It only has one SIM card (Nano-sim) and comes in three colours: dark grey, silver, and gold. With a 10.4-inch display which is almost 23% larger than the Huawei MediaPad M6 tablet, reading, browsing the internet, and watching movies are more enjoyable for its consumers. The display also has a TFT LCD panel which quite appealing to the eye. The resolution is 1200p, and the colours are vibrant. If that’s not enough, the four stereo speakers add to the visual experience. There’s also a headphone jack if you want more private listening.
On the other hand, we have the Huawei MediaPad M6 which runs on Android 9.0 and weighs 498g, it offers Nano-SIM stylus compatibility, allowing you to use the device to make calls and send SMS. Though there is only one colour option for this tablet which is champagne gold, the massive 10.8 inches screen makes it possible to work comfortably for long hours without the screen looking too crowded. The Huawei tablet also features a 2560 x 1600 resolution that is enough to keep text and images sharp. Moreover, the Huawei ClariVu technology helps improve contrast and clarity for a better viewing experience.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is powered by an octa-core processor. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor and 3GB of RAM make it capable of playing games with ease and has superb power management. Although many would consider 32GB to be a limited amount of storage, the 32GB model is considerably more desirable from a price perspective. But there’s no need to be concerned because a dedicated slot allows you to add up to 256GB of storage.
A tablet with good performance can provide continuous productivity, and the Huawei MediaPad M6’s HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset is more than capable of doing so. With an 8 cortex-A76 core CPU and 4GB of RAM, you can be sure there won’t be any slowdowns or performance drops even if you’re running many apps at once. The 128GB of internal storage should be plenty for most document files. If you need more storage or work with a lot of huge files, you can quickly install a microSD card with up to 512GB of storage capacity.
The Tab A7 sports an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera, both of which capture good photos and movies. Video recording resolution for both cameras is up to Full HD at 30 frames per second. Aside from that, the camera software offers a variety of options for customers, including the basic Pro mode, as well as a hyper-lapse, Live Focus (bokeh), and panorama settings.
On the other hand, the Huawei MediaPad M6 has only a few basic features. It has a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP video camera, thus image and video quality are excellent. You’ll also have the option of using panorama video at 30 frames per second, which will make your video look more realistic and in line with what viewers expect from broadcast television.
The Tab A7’s battery capacity of 7,040 mAh is similar to many other Samsung mid-range tablets, such as the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. Depending on how bright the screen is, it can last for 10-12 hours with a mix of YouTube, Netflix, gaming, and browsing before you need to charge it.
On the other hand, the huge 7,500 mAh battery of the Huawei MediaPad M6 can keep you going for a whole day or more in certain situations. This MediaPad model is also extremely power efficient, thanks to its chipset’s 7nm manufacturing technology. This implies that the tablet’s power usage is lower, and it can last longer between charges.
Huawei and Samsung are without a doubt in a class of their own. Both brands make excellent phones and tablets, but which one you prefer is a matter of personal preference. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is priced at $286, while the Huawei MediaPad M6 is priced at $336. If you’re looking for a low-cost device that is slimmer and has a much lighter weight, Samsung Galaxy Tab is ideal for you. The Huawei MediaPad M6 is the best option if you value battery life and wider screen above everything else.
