Good bang for the buckUPDATE #2: Over the last year or so I’m really starting to notice the slow speed. Google Chrome is a notorious resource hog, so it’s starting to chug.Games are hit and miss, games like Tomb Raider and Mario Kart are fine, Animal Crossing and Call of Duty are noticably laggy. Diablo Immortal doesn’t even meet the requirements, so it won’t show up at all on the Google Play store.For media consumption, Facebook, email, etc it’s still great. So if you can get it for a cheap price (say $150 or less) you should be able to get a couple of years out of it. But for most people, it’s definitely not the value it was 2 years ago.UPDATE: The tablet did upgrade to Android 10 and is actually performing a little better than before in games.I’ve been looking to replace an aging laptop for some time now, and a tablet seemed like a better fit since I mostly used it for media. I had several requests:1. 128 GB of storage with micro SD expansion slot2. 4 GB of RAM3. 10 inch screen4. Headphone jack5. USB type C connector6. No more than $3007. Name brand8. Android 10This tablet fulfills all but the last request, it runs Android 9 out of the box, but from my understanding, it’s likely to get an update to Android 10 at some point. I’m not sure why such a recent tablet doesn’t ship with the latest version of the OS, but this is hardly an issue unique to this tablet.So what do I think? Well, I’m mostly impressed. Let’s start with the good. As I stated in the title, this is a great bang for the buck in terms of specs. You’ll see a lot of brand new tablets that are 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Granted, they’re in the $150 price range, but those are pretty bottom of the barrel specs, even for a mobile device. Even the standard iPad only has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage and it costs $330.The screen is a highlight, the color and brightness are impressive. The resolution is 1920×1200, so it’s slightly better than 1080p. Videos and games really pop. It’s not going to compete with OLED, but it’s one of the best parts of the tablet.In the audio department, it’s pretty standard fare, the speakers don’t sound fantastic, but they are well placed on either end of the tablet so it sounds more organic. I’m pleased to report that there is a headphone jack for those who are so inclined (an increasingly rare feature in phones and tablets) as well as support for Bluetooth 5.0.As far as performance is concerned, it’s good. The 4 GB of RAM means programs can run in the background and not bog the tablet down, which makes it a great device for multimedia. The menus and apps felt responsive, not buttery smooth, but I didn’t encounter any performance issues for media/apps. It doesn’t fare as well in the gaming department, but it ran everything I threw at it. My only gripe is Call of Duty Mobile stuck the graphics on the low setting.In terms of build quality, it’s quite impressive. The materials feel premium with good haptics, the body is metal and it seems like it would hold up even if dropped.Now for the the negatives, I found the cameras to be sub par. There’s a 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera, the overall image is soft. Those are far from impressive in 2020. The video camera is similarly fuzzy as it only supports 720p and 1080p, there’s not even a 60 FPS mode. More light does yield better results, just keep your expectations in check.While I am glad the tablet uses USB C (which should be the universal standard across the board) however, it does not support fast charging. This means you while charge the device while using it, it won’t be able to keep pace. While it will gain a charge with the screen off, it’s painfully slow You have to turn the tablet completely off to give it a proper charge.I have other smaller gripes such as Netflix only running in 480p (which, from my understanding, is an issue between Lenovo and Netflix), the Lenovo overlay (which can be mostly negated), and the less than perfect battery life, but these are getting into nitpicks at this point. Overall, I am very satisfied with the tablet, there are some cut corners, that is somewhat to be expected at this price point. I would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a mid-range tablet at a great price.

A solid budget option, but others to possibly consider in late 2020.My usage: Mostly passive consumption and background use during work – YouTube (podcasts, music, some movies for background noise), Audible, Prime Video. Some active tasks during downtime – Kindle, web browsing, N64 and DC emu gaming.What I like:•Solid and quality metal build.•4gb memory/64gb storage•relatively stock/vanilla android experience (not heavily forked)•It will receive Android 10 ~Oct 2020.•Nice screen resolution spec and IPS panelWhat’s Okay:•Dual Speakers: Not terrible but nothing spectacular. Good enough for my needs as a lot of the time I used airpods or over the ear bluetooth headphones. What’s expected for the budget price.What could have improved:• (Nitpick) The power button placed above the volume rocker would have been more intuitive for me. I kept putting the device to sleep instead of turning the volume down. I still hesitate for a second to check what I’m pressing.• Battery life. I didn’t travel that much this year so it wasn’t a deal breaker, but 5,000mAh battery is something you’ll have to remember about regular charges. I believe the stand by time would also last less than 3 days if I forgot about the tablet, it would definitely be dead.•GPU: The Power VR 8320 is from 2014 which is pretty dated in tech terms. It doesn’t benchmark well so if gaming is something you’re into, you might want to consider another option.•(Nitpick) The option for a persistent “Recent” task tray icon instead of a swipe up gesture – on stock android, you can enable this, however, Lenovo removed this option.•Netflix, Prime Video, and some other steaming apps, won’t render full HD resolution because of WideVine DRM. This might be a huge deal breaker for some people who want to use it for streaming video.Overall: I got this in May and was pleased with the $200 price point and the build. It’s a nice little work companion as I don’t use a ton of apps, maybe a dozen total. I think if you’re not into gaming it will do just fine for you but you might want to consider the Samsung A7 (2020).Pros for Samsung:•Battery: 7,040mAh vs 5,000mAh•GPU: Adreno 610 (2019) vs PowerVR GE8320 (2014) – significantly higher benchmarks•Quad Speakers vs. Dual Speakers – more powerful, slightly warmer and filling.•Full HD for streaming apps (Netflix, Prime Video, etc)•Possibly more future support/updates/xda developmentI recently got the A7 on sale for $169.95 from Amazon (reg $229 – if it goes back up, wait for a black Friday or holiday deal) for the 3gb ram/32gb storage – though it does have less ram and storage I think a few things make it a possible better option. I haven’t noticed any lag difference with 3gb ram for app tasks yet. ‘ve got a regular habit of clearing the app tray unconsciously since the recent app button is there at all times. The 32gb will be supplemented with a microSD card, so storage isn’t too much of a worry for my needs. Additionally I usually don’t keep any apps around that I don’t use. Though the screen size is nearly identical, I don’t feel any significant downgrade from the IPS to a TFT, plus, you will get back full HD resolution on video streaming apps, so a TFT @1080p still beats IPS @720p or lower in my eyes.Where I did notice a difference in performance was gaming. The Samsung’s Adreno 610 GPU is noticeably faster and smoother than the M10’s PowerVR GE8320 as to be expected from a near 5 year difference in age. I noticed this especially in several retro N64 emu games, so I’m glad I did get to test and compare. More than likely, I’ll be selling the M10 Plus so somebody else can get use out of it as I don’t need two tablets.I was never a huge fan of Samsung’s UI from the TouchWiz days as I much prefer a stock Android feel, however, their recent “One UI” interface doesn’t feel clunky. I am using Nova Launcher just so I can give it more of a vanilla android feel with the icons and home screen features.
Nice quality amazing price…go for 4gb of ram 2 is not enough in 2021Ok after about 3hours of full spectrum of testing I’m satisfied with the conclusion that this is a good tablet…honestly I wasnt expecting much on the performance side of it being a mediatek middle of the road core but its surprisingly snappy at least with the kinds of games and media applications I use a android tablet for(added bonus the backlit keyboard case combo with the slightly rounded keys easily doubles this things value for me, with that very nice keyboard this is a perfect drop in replacement to a full blown laptop for terminal applications for managing my servers and doing so light application development) so maybe take my review with a grain of salt if ur looking for the top of the shelf gaming tablet however much of an oxymoron that may be this isn’t the tablet to look at it’s not a $700 Samsung pro but if I wanted to play a AAA fps I wouldn’t be doing that on a 10inch tablet I have 3 gaming computers so ya no lol but for literally everything else including normal casual gaming this tablet is fine its fast it’s just the right size and best of all it wount break the bank…now I will be updating this after a while with more data on the battery charge and discharge times at full load and at semi idle just cut it’s a tablet and those details are important when considering such a device but so far I’m impressed and just to clarify some of the complaints others have with this not working on full HD on apps like Netflix and Disney plus ok ya that’s true they will run at 1080×720 but I have 2 retorts for those minor grievances first that’s not lenovo thats Netflix and there DRM bs doing that and it will very likely be pached once this 2nd gen model has been on the market for a bit longer and second it’s a fairly small 10.3in screen you cant tell the difference at all the display is still a super crisp 1920×1200 ips panel so you cant see any pixelation groups on 1080×720 with the subsampleing this SOC is doing and literly anybody who tries to say that can tell the difference needs to prove that they are genuinely noticing unbiased referential scan line aliasing and not using some other hardware or greater than human perception software to infer the difference because I own high refresh rate 4k 240hz ips panels and there is no noticeable difference and that is simply because of the size if this was 24in or 32in ya obviously u could tell if it was scaling from a 1080×720 image but not this is only 10.3in and you cannot tell and its ONLY a superficial limitation with those 2 apps that I have found, nothing else fails to scale not YouTube not hulu not HBO and most importantly for me not a plain jain white or green test very small on a black background like in a terminal lol…ok so to wrap it up for the price of the 4gb/64gb model that I have and ur expectations are sensible for what apps u will run like normal Google play games or productivity apps this tablet is perfect and most important it wount break the bank o and mine literly took one day to ship across country lol(that parts not relevant I’m just super stoked I got it 2 days early on a 3day free shipping included in my order lol)
Best tablet for the moneyI have higher end tablets and I find myself reaching for this one. My wife has one now too and she loves it (she hates gadgets), irony is I was using hers so much she told me to go get my own. I have an OOOOLD Ipad mini, a Huawei Media Pad Pro 5, couple of Nexus tablets and a Surface Pro. I use this thing. Does everything I want, plays movies in HD, watch F1, stream does everything quickly enough for me not to want to spend 800$ on a high end tablet.

Man I really Love This Tablet!I have had a windows 10 tablet and I like android as I have an android phone. I used to buy laptops a long time ago from the company now known as Lenovo but was once IBM. The computers never broke on you. Now back to the tablet. The screen is far better than any tablet I have seen. And I am a computer tech. Second the speed is good. Third the battery last for about 3 days full charge depending on use. Now I don’t play games so I don’t know how long that would last on a charge. But surfing and emails and playing HD videos it last a long time. I love this tablet. My wife has a Galaxy Tab 10A and it blows her tablet out of the water. From pictures to video to the screen resolution and speed it’s not even close. I see now I have to buy her one because she was not happy when she seen that LOL! Any way one thing that can be done is customizations where you can do more with the tablet. It’s simple and not much to change on the tablet. But besides that man this tablet is so smooth and clear my goodness. Makes looking at videos better than looking at TV and I have 4k video. But the clarity of that screen is amazing and smooth. Downloading apps from google was a breeze. I had one issue with one app and that was Experian but I just went on the browser and done it that way. I also like that google has Microsoft Edge new browser that thing takes google chrome and make it look stupid !! I never thought I would like another windows browser ever because of chrome but I lied. Google better step up because Microsoft Edge is a beast!! With that as my browser it feels like a windows computer but yet it’s android. Man I am loving this tablet. You can’t go wrong people. I haven’t found anything to say I hate this for what I use it for. The cameras are good. I haven’t taken pictures with them yet but far as how it looks and the video looks when using the camera it’s great! I don’t use a tablet for those things but far as I can see pictures will be very nice on that tablet that is a bonus. And you can video stream far as zoom and any other camera streaming app. It’s clear and works well. If you want a tablet this one is the real deal. As far as tablets I call this the #1 Killer to all tablets out there. Benchmarks I don’t get into if you looking for that it ranks pretty decent. But I don’t get into that because I don’t use that to it’s full potential for what I need it for. Gamers can use this but I am not a gamer. But playing games work on this tablet and works well and flawless. I have the 4gb and 64gb model. And for $199 man that’s stealing !!! Well enjoy people if you buy this tablet you will love it.
YouTube TabletI purchased this mainly for my children to just watch YouTube on. The screen is large the price was affordable and it works most of all giving me some r&r. The sound, screen lighting and picture quality are not the best, but we’ll enough for the job.

Bang for BuckWhen it comes to phones I always go with a flagship device with an OLED screen. Before buying this I was aware that it was not OLED but was willing to accept diminished visuals at this price point and form factor. I’m quite shocked at how deep the blacks are and how vibrant the colors are. This tablet is very aesthetically pleasing and as far as ergonomics go it could not possibly be better. I’ve had flagship tablets in the past, but this one feels like a big phone. It’s really balanced in weight and I can comfortably hold it with one hand. The speakers sound like crap unless you put it in theater mode. At first I was wondering why it got such good reviews on the sound quality but in theater mode it sounds really great. I would give the audio quality a 3.8 out of 5 (for tablets)There is the known issue with Netflix, with not being able to view it in HD. That is disappointing but I didn’t buy this to watch movies. HD is fine with other video apps. Something else is the double tap to wake. It seems buggy. Most of the time I have to do it twice. As if the first taps are to wake up the screen and then the next taps are to actually wake up the tablet. I’m hoping this gets fixed with updates, but it’s not a deal breaker. Also be aware that the default navigation of device is some kind of weird gesture thing. You have to go into the settings and enable the navigation bar if you want any kind of familiarality with other Android devices. Also, scrolling inside of certain apps isn’t as fluid as with my Note 20 ultra. This is only when scrolling at high speeds. There seems to be an occasional sticking that lasts probably 1/20 of a second. Something to be aware of, but that’s more of a luxury than a necessity.Take note that I’m using the 4GB version. Lots of complaints with the 2GB version. 2B of RAM isn’t going to cut it these days so I would recommend not buying that one. Something else I’ve noticed is that this is really good at picking up a Wi-Fi signal. Currently in a hotel where my phone cuts in and out, but this tablet picks up a really strong signal. Overall I feel it’s a very ergonomic and beautiful device with a great display. I don’t see anything else coming close to competing in this price range. It’s not as fast as my Note 20 ultra but I’m very aware of the price point here. It’s not slow, but it’s just not super fast. If you want flagship performance you’re going to have to look at something at least $200 more expensive. Just be aware of what you’re buying and keep your expectations in line with that. Oh, and thank you, Lenovo, for the headphone jack!
Happy Birthday!This is my first and only tablet. I bought this as my own birthday present. I use it everyday. I have not had any issues with the quality or technology. I would buy again.
Love this tablet, and it’s not even 2 monthsFor the price, this thing is amazing!I’m coming from a 2 year old Samsung that was about the same price when new.This Lenovo is very fast, and can run several apps at once without serious performance degradation.The “Productivity mode” is great, and uses a few of the better concepts of MS Windows or Mac OS.The display actually occupies the entire front of the unit, unlike most mid-priced Android tablets, which have this huge wasted space in a bezel around the edge.The two major drawbacks are audio and expansion.Audio:This tablet sounds *awesome*.The problem is that max volume is way too low. Even connecting to an external BT speaker, it’s barely loud enough to overcome my bathroom exhaust fan and shower water. My phone can do that without a speaker…Expansion:I have a USB-C dock with ethernet, HDMI output, USB ports, and SD card readers. This tablet refuses to recognize anything except the charging power pass-through. My USB-C phone recognizes everything on the dock with no problem, in fact, I needed to email dashcam video from the side of the road last week, and would have much rather used the big tablet display to do so, but instead had to use the itty bitty phone display because the phone works with the dock.The tablet DOES work with Windows when plugged into a PC with a USB cable. Mass storage mode, for file management.If they can release firmware that supports a dock or USB expansion (for mouse/keyboard/ethernet/SD reader, etc), I’ll knock this thing up to 5 stars and overlook the audio annoyance.One minor drawback:”Tap to wake” doesn’t work after after a few seconds. If the display shuts off, I can double-tap it within a few seconds and it wakes back up. Any longer than that, and I have to hit the lock button to wake it. Settings…been there done that. Not a big deal, just a PITA when I have it parked on a stand and try to use just one hand.Update 9/26/20:Battery life is not good.Wifi is not stable.Battery:I took it off a charger at the office at 100% 23 hours ago, currently at 89% with zero usage (took it off the charger, closed the cover, and dropped it in my bag; just looked at battery now out of curiosity).If I forget to charge it and it’s at 20% or less, I can’t start a Teams call on it.Wifi:It will arbitrarily drop bandwidth and then connection entirely, but then reconnect ok.Imagine this; you’re on a Teams call, and suddenly everyone freezes. Then they come back and Teams asks, “Bandwidth low, do you want to turn off video?” Then a few minutes later, the call freezes again, and you pull down status to find wifi disconnected.This isn’t so bad when watching a movie or doing work that doesn’t need real-time connection, but quite disruptive to live collaboration calls.It happens on all wifi networks while other devices on the same networks see no disruption.If I wasn’t past the return deadline, I’d consider returning it based on these flaws. It would be a lifesaver if I could plug in the USB-c dock and use GB ethernet, but I’m not hopefull that will ever come. Just have to hope now that someone will notice and fix wifi and battery with an update that doesn’t kill performance. This thing is still a blowtorch…
Im a Truck driver Mostly GPS useGood for GPS use and watching YouTube but it stutters on web browsing.
