Lenovo Tab 4 review

 

2017 Android tablets are off to a nice start

Awesome value ; Impressive all-glass design ; Massive battery

Missing a stand-out feature, but that's about as bad as it gets here

Lenovo's new tablet range puts value ahead of tech specs, but its first-class design basically makes up for it.

Lenovo Tab 4 (8-inch) review

 

The 8-inch Lenovo Tab 4 is a great choice if you're interested in a small and affordable tablet and don't want to splurge on an iPad Mini 4.

The Lenovo Tab 4 is an affordable, small tablet with good battery life. It has front-facing speakers and a microSD card expansion slot. Works with the Lenovo Home Assistant dock.

It runs an old version of Android.

The Lenovo Tab 4 is a solid small tablet that won’t break the bank.

Lenovo Tab 4 8

 

The Lenovo Tab 4 8 is an affordable Android tablet with a long-lasting battery and decent performance for average multimedia use.

Affordable. Solid overall performance. Good battery life.

Poor camera quality. No dual-band Wi-Fi.

For $130, the Tab 4 8 is a solid tablet with good battery life. It's well-suited for media consumption, kids, and travel, especially if you need access to the Google Play store. But if you can live with Amazon's highly modified version of Android...

Lenovo Tab 4 8 Tablet Review

 

Family friendly. Lenovo's Tab 4 8 is marketed as a tablet computer for the entire family, and it attempts to achieve that through optional accessories. Find out whether or not the tablet itself is worth the money in our review.

ergonomically designed case ; decent front-facing speakers ; bright display with wide viewing angles ; comparatively cool ; pure Android with user account management ; fairly precise GPS ; smooth usage ; fast storage devices

GPS lock is pretty slow ; blue tint ; photos sometimes blurry ; no ambient light sensor ; slow Wi-Fi

Lenovo’s Tab 4 8 is an affordable tablet that fails to stand out. Its design is rather restrained and conservative, the case is susceptible to torsional forces and pressure, and camera resolution, image quality, performance, and connectivity are...

Lenovo Tab 4 8 Review and Ratings

 

The sharp-looking Tab 4 8 won't shred your wallet, and its battery life and bright display make it a good budget Android-tablet choice for media consumption and reading.

Stylish-yet-solid design ; Reasonable price ; Light weight ; Strong battery life

Ho-hum camera quality

What our testing says: In a comparative sense, clearly the Lenovo Tab 4 8 is not a powerhouse tablet. But it excels at the basics, and it goes above and beyond for the price with its polish and design.
