What the experts say
My Next Tablet found the MediaPad M5 Lite 10 to be an excellent value tablet, offering premium build quality, an all-metal body, long battery life, good audio from its four speakers and good overall performance. It is let down a little by the quality of its cameras and it is unlikely to receive software updates, but for the price it is an attractive option.
Laptop Mag found the MediaPad M5 Lite to be a good value option for a kids tablet, with a dedicated child safe mode accessed using the included fingerprint reader. Impressive battery life, a bright screen and included stylus are all plus points, although it is worth noting it is only capable of supporting one kid’s profile at a time if you have more than one child and the parental controls aren’t quite as robust as those found on iPads or Amazon’s Fire tablets.
PC Mag found the MediaPad M5 Lite 10 to be a reasonable choice among the mid-range Android tablets, but it is not without its downsides. Good build quality, a decent screen, long battery life and good speakers impress, but underwhelming specs, poor cameras and a reduced selection of apps when compared with an iPad drag the score down.

It’s perfect for everyone. Camera & sound quality is good. Fast processor good for gaming and picture quality is good for watching videos on YouTube.Google play store available. According to price it’s worthy.

Poor 2nd. to Apple iPad.
If you've never had a tablet before you would be pleased with your purchase, however if you've had a apple iPad you would be very disappointed.

Tip top quality
Bought this tablet for my wife’s birthday as her old one was very slow, but not this one, done a bit of homework on it and spoke to someone who has one, very quick response’s drop app to app and quick to load up, would recommend it, in fact thinking about buying myself one as it is a great price and my old iPad is seriously slow now.

Leaves others in its wake
Absolutely superb tablet. Forget Apple, forget Samsung. Just buy it. My Apple iPad has not been switched on once since I became the owner of this gorgeous piece of technology.

Great tablet for its price!
I was looking for a good android tablet that wouldn't break the bank and I came across this and with some research I found it to be a good tablet for its price. As usual great service from Argos, I bought it in store and when I started using it I got more than I expected. It runs smoothly with games like Mobile Legends and if you're looking to do some office work it has Microsoft Office installed, now that's a big plus! The battery life so far is excellent! I'm impressed with this budget tablet!

Great screen, fast, and the sound for a tablet is absolutely brilliant. Fingerprint sensor works lightning fast. To be honest better than my ipad4 and lighter.

Does the job
Good tablet, nice screen to body ratio, very responsive, considering that low spec. I'm just a little bit annoyed as I've paid £40 extra and bought it a coupl of days ago.

Definitely worth buying great performance and batt

The Mediapad M5 lite 10 is just what I was looking for. Large clear screen, good quality speakers and excellent battery life. It has a premium feel while being reasonably priced. I do not use the tablet for graphic heavy gaming but it is fast enough for video streaming and most other general applications. I have already recommended this Huawei tablet to several people.

My new tablet
This tablet is great. Has the latest Android operating system and is so fast. Battery life is fantastic. I do have one complaint. Because it is so thin and light (good) it's a bit slippy in my hands, so have had to order a case. Other than that, it's a great tablet and welll worth the price.
