Huawei MatePad Pro

As a complete hardware package, the MatePad Pro is absolutely worth the £499 asking price. Hardware isn't everything, though, and the reality of the Huawei-US trade ban hobbles what would otherwise be the best affordable Android tablet on the market.

What we like

Premium design
Stellar battery life
Affordable price
Useful extras for Huawei users

What we don't like

Flat sounding speakers
Awkward selfie camera placement
