MediaTab t5 or Samsung tab a 10.5 lte

Hi

just want to ask for suggestions here... I need an LTE tab for my casual business need (browsing ,email, light work). I was being offered 0$ for either the Huawei MediaTab T5 or the 10.5 Samsung Tab A ( not the 10.1 or the 8in... somehow they can still get be the usual out of stock 10.5)... which one should I get? A little concern with the go forward update I will get from Huawei, and also even though seems to be a better spec but not really popular. TIA

Between Samsung or Huawei?

No competition, get the Samsung

But, you will be better served with an iPad. Even for the most basic needs.

If you just want to compare specs. The Samsung is better in every way. The T5 maybe slightly faster on 4 cores. But the Samsung has a bigger battery, more RAM and storage (compared to base model T5).

The screen size is larger on the Samsung and smaller on the T5 but the tablet dimensions are smaller on the Samsung. Better camera on the Samsung too

Samsung is the clear winner. Here is the side by side comparison
