Huawei MediaPad T5 Unboxing

December 28, 2019  

We have heard about Huawei tablet PCs but until this year we have no chance to own it. This is a Huawei MediaPad T5 sold in North America.

The box we received is a white main color with a tablet photo on the main page, which looks very thin.



At the bottom of the box, we can see the contents of this package: Huawei MediaPad T5 Tablet, USB Cable, power adapter, manual and warranty instructions, and an Eject Pin. The model we got on hand was AGS2-L03.

Opening the packaging box, we see that the topmost layer is the tablet, which is covered with a layer of protective paper packaging. After taking out the tablet, we see a few paper grids underneath, which contain the power adapter and the warranty instructions of the manual.



The photos below are the contents of the box. The tablet looks thin with a 10.1-inch screen. The Huawei T5 tablet provides two configurations, one is 32 GB ROM and the other is 16 GB ROM. The one we got was the North American model with 16 GB ROM.



Let’s take a look at some of the design of the tablet: on the front we can see a camera, this is the front camera, and there is another rear camera on the back. Then there is a power jack and a Macro-USB port, a card slot, a headphone jack, and a button to adjust the volume.

Another thing to note is that Huawei MediaPad T5 tablet can carry a SIM card, which means that you can use it to make calls or provide a data plan. Because we don’t need this feature, so let’s skip it. However, we need to know that both the SIM card and the SD card storing data are installed and uninstalled through the same card slot. It should also be noted that when the tablet is powered on, please do not open the card slot to install or remove the SIM card, otherwise the SIM card may be damaged.
