Now more than ever, consumers are seeking out flexible tools that allow them to enjoy all the benefits of a traditional laptop, with the freedom of a smartphone. This is why Huawei continues to see such an interest in the tablet market.

As the technology has become more and more advanced, the trade-off between tablet and PC is becoming increasingly less visible and, with the affordable tablet market growing in size and capability, the devices are becoming accessible to people of all income levels and ages. While access to these powerful tools of productivity, education and entertainment have huge benefits for their users, the ease of access and freedom of use can have some unwanted side effects.

Highly prolonged periods of screen time can have negative impacts on your eyes. From eye fatigue and itchy eyes, all the way through to a loss of focus flexibility, there are a range of risks associated with spending excessive periods of time on devices. However, understanding the science behind the damage that can be caused is the key to helping people find the right balance. Now, based on this understanding, we are seeing devices with built in multi-layered eye protection technology, meaning that users can rest assured that their vision will go un-hampered by their use.

Not just for the top-end of the market, this technology can even be seen in the more affordable tablets available today, which is particularly important for the large audience of younger users that own these types of devices. A fantastic example of a budget friendly device with high level eye protection is the HUAWEI MatePad T. This is a powerful tablet that has the look, feel and performance of a premium device.

The HUAWEI MatePad T features a multi-layered eye protection technology that implements Eye Comfort mode, eBook mode, and in Kids Corner has posture alerts, and bumpy road alerts to provide essential tools to reduce harm to the eyes.

First up, Huawei’s Eye Comfort mode reduces the impact of screen time on the eyes. By reducing the levels of blue light produced by the screen, the Eye Comfort mode on the HUAWEI MatePad T is able to lower the likelihood of harm to the eye itself.

Although protection from blue light is a really important step to protecting eyes, this alone does not solve the issue. User behaviour also has a large part to play in the risks of causing damage to the eyes. This is where Huawei Kids Corner’s posture alert, bumpy road alerts and time management comes in to play. Posture may seem like more of an orthopaedic issue but considering the user’s posture and their proximity to the screen is a valuable tool in reducing risk of harm.

Moreover, the key to the impact that screen time has on the eyes is the length of time spent looking at the device without a break. As mentioned at the top of this article, negative impacts of screen time are associated with prolonged periods of use. By providing time management, the Kids Corner enables users to set parameters for duration of their usage, which in turn allows them to mitigate any risks of harm.

HUAWEI MatePad T also supports eBook mode. By adjusting contrast, brightness, clarity, colour saturation and other parameters, HUAWEI MatePad T creates an eBook mode that displays content in a paper-like effect, ensuring eye protection while providing a great reading experience all at the same time.

The ever-increasing availability of high-performance tablets in the affordable market is a fantastic step forward for users across the world. However, understanding the risks of prolonged usage, and how to counteract them, should also play a hugely important role in consumer’s choices when purchasing. The combination of high performance and affordability, alongside the harm reducing features of Huawei’s multi-layered eye protection technology is what makes the HUAWEI MatePad T really stand out from its competitors.
