This tablet is amazing! although there are only 16gb you can get lots of apps! The screen looks great. If your panning on using this for gaming your outta luck. the tablet does run lots of games extremely smooth but others just are laggy. The tablet is great for browsing the web, insanely responsive! downloads apps incredibly fast! camera sucks, but easy to over look for that price point. Primarily use this tablet for homework and as an mp3 player. it works great for both of those uses.
I managed to grab the Lenovo Tab4 8 Plus and am really loving the 1200p IPS Display and the 5MP Front facing camera. The glass rear is a real fingerprint magnet but overall, the design is awesome! The Snapdragon 625 gives it the grunt to power through almost everything you throw at it. I would recommend the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus to anyone looking :)
Zade Muhammad No it won't it will work just fine I think people who get this get it for the productivity package. Not for games. The Dolby Atmos is awsome for movies and YouTube last time I checked to get comparable speakers and proper keyboard support on a apple tablet you would have to get the pro with the keyboard which costs. 800+ dollars
So, comparing it to Samsung Chromebook pro and plus:
If I'm looking for something that can switch from writing up documents, sending emails, and transferring video files to watch YouTube and Netflix with some basic web browsing. Which one should I go with?
I am slightly confused in the article you said the tablet was "2 GHz octa-core processors and 4 GB of RAM", but you also said "quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, backed by 2 GB of RAM." Are the 8 and 10 in. models different? Or is there that much of a difference between. regular and plus?
Glass backs look good and shiny but are fragile fingerprint magnets, the normal versions look much more solid and reliable with their black plastic design.
those bumpers from the kids version should be in every tablet instead of curved metal borders, it's more ergonomic.
just wish Josh and Garry commented all the videos, just a personnel opinion :p
theses two are by far incomparable with the others when it comes to intonation, indentation, the faces they make and their voice in general
I find it disappointing that Lenovo would cater a tablet for infants considering how many psychologists agree about the negative effects of tablets towards the brain development of tots and younger kids.
Glass backs are a bad design choice in general practically and unless you clean. them every 5 seconds also aesthetically. Especially dumb on tablets which unlike phones are not becoming fashion accessories.
I use a Tab 3 (not pro) pretty good, kind of under powered, sometimes lags when playing games but that's about it. Although if you're into multitasking I haven't had the best experience cause it has 1gb of ram. I had 6.0.1 marshmallow out of the box :)
MrDefeater94 i have do not have lenovo tablet, but lenovo phab plus which they have yet to update it in any major version. still stuck at 5.1 lollipop. though its' lower end lenovo phab already got the marshmallow update. For media consumption, i would say the version is not that important as major file formats is accessible previous or newer version of android and not much apps have required the updated versions at least at jelly bean or kitkat
MrDefeater94 I have a lenovo tab s8, it got an update for lollipop from KitKat.There are literally no custom ROM s for it because it has an Intel processor, the display is pretty good tbh. I will say that these are good for media consumption !
I have and currently still using it. It's a Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 and the only major update it had was from 4.4 -> 5.0. The rest of the (few) updates were bugfixes and security patches. Which is good enough for just media consumption since you don't really need the latest Android version for that.
Laptops always break easily because of the hinge so you need to be careful. They also need to be put on a surface. They are also usually more bulky, shorter battery life. I know these things are not always true but they are things that you have to worry about when buying a laptop, not a tablet. You also don't get an app store on a laptop (Well you do but it doesn't have many apps.)
+Austin Lock I was as well, seems like Lenovo has realised people usually get expensive phones on a contract and a tablet is more of a luxury tech item. Really good news for the people who can't afford to fork out! :)
