If you have been on the market for an Android tablet, the choices are out there are slim, especially if you are looking for a tablet that has been released in 2018.
Fortunately, Huawei has not only released an android tablet, but three different tablets, in two sizes MediaPad M5 8.4 inch and MediaPad M5 10.8 inch. The biggest of the two the M5 (the 10.8 inch) versions has two separate models, the MediaPad M5 10.8 and MediaPad M5 Pro.
