On the other hand, I couldn't recall any memorable app on Android tablets that gained people's attention and gave enough reason to use one. Well, given their mediocre specs, it's safe to say they're not even that capable in the first place. If Google saw a good potential on Android tablets, then they'd be developing the proper OS for them 'til date.
The only Android tablet lineup that ever came close to iPads is the Sony Xperia Tab line, and that's because their hardware matched their Xperia Z counterpart, which is flagship grade, which made sense to compare it to iPads, but even with that, Android's sucky OS lacked enough good apps to make great use of the hardware, so in the end, they still lost to iPads due to their lack of capabilities.

2 - Because that's the main point of iPads - to be a great PC/laptop replacement, since they carry nearly the same level of functionality while still being more portable.
Sure, they could've made things easier, but I have an iPad Air 2 and transferring files to PC wasn't as hard as you're trying to make it seem.
On one hand, I could forgive a slightly more difficult way of transferring files to a different platform, since there are many easy workarounds for them lile ShareIt. On the other hand, the lack of enough functionality for Android tablets, as well as their insufficient power to handle heavy tasks, which are supposed to be performed on tablets, simply can't be overlooked by anyone that's looking for a true powerhouse tab.
Apple wouldn't be successful with their iPad lineup if they didn't meet people's needs and expectations.
iPads are basically iPhones with more functionalities.

My last tablet was the Galaxy Tab S2 (SD652), but I sold it when I bought my Note9. With so many big-screened phones, it's kind of pointless to have a tablet, except for media consumption and productivity, and I can do both things with my phone.

Being first in punch holes for tablet is really something!
I mean, those bezels should be wider than any notch on a phone, yet they chose to ruin the screen!

It’s almost 2020
And people still debating who is copying whom
Let them copy, let them steal
So I get the best product

Nick Tagataka, 01 Nov 2019You can say literally the same thing for all the Surface Pr... moreOkay, I get your point but Microsoft and Samsung have their unique styluses too. It's clear that Huawei is aiming to rip off Apple. They have always been like that. Look at the Matebooks, Mi Notebooks, etc. Those are just clones. Xiaomi makes them cheap and Huawei makes them just as expensive as Macbooks.
Samsung has also done in the past but they don't do blatant rip-offs now. It's time for these brands to grow up and do their own designs at the very least. I can understand trying to follow in the technological department but don't just ripoff everything.

no hole.

Don't compare a tablet with a pc (even a 2 in 1 device) it's not the same thing

Huawei doing what it does best, copying Apple. Complete total carbon copy rip off of iPad. Just shamelessly pathetic.

That holepunch makes me feel uncomfortable, the way it's so close to the corner bezel without touching it. Looks so off, they should've had a corner notch like the one on the Galaxy Fold

Good one,one thing i want to know is why do the Huawei Executives and most workers use Apple products and not theirs.. I have seen many Samsung Executives and workers that all they use is Samsung and all.. I know Huawei Founder said he love Apple products but that's not enough

looks nice to me.

Doesn't matter how high end is this tablet, still destroyed by the poor app support for Android tablet. Google itself has given up supporting or developing android for tablets.
