Amazing Audio for a Midranger

The Lenovo Tab4 8 Plus overall is a decent mid-end Tablet. It is well built, has Dual Sided Glass Design and looks like an oversized Smartphone. And it comes with Dual Front Facing Speakers with Dolby Atmos Audio that offers one of the best Speakers on a Tablet.

It supports MicroSD but no Sim Cards

Well, I have to apologize, on my video review above, i did mention that it has no MicroSD Card support. But it was all hidden on a logo, which i failed to see. So it supports MicroSd, and I tested it with my 64 GB MicroSD Card. However, I could not insert a Simcard Slot on it, I’ve tried both MicroSIMS and Nano Sims and it doesn’t seem to work.

The Display could have been better

Well, for a $250 tablet, you would have expected a bit more than an FHD screen. But that is all you get, also it is an 8.0 inch Tablet, and the huge bezels do take a chunk of the screen room. Nevertheless, screen quality is good overall, no tinting, contrast levels are good, but the brightness levels are average at best.

OS has no lasting appeal

The tablet is running the latest Android 7 Nougat with a proprietary UI from Lenovo. It supports OTA updates and ever since, I was able to update this more than once. But when it comes to the look of the UI, it isn’t the pretties, the icons look generic and not really a lot of customization is available for you. In fact, it is limited. The Camera UI is barebones, and the options offered in the homescreen don’t really offer anything new. But for stability, well on my short time using it, I had no issues or problems.

Excellent Connectivity, Battery Life and Performance

What you can commend on this tablet, is the performance, it is fast and efficient. Running games even the top 3D titles available are a non issue. And in terms of connectivity, it is also excellent, it offers Dual Band Wireless ac support, with fast and stable connection. Battery life is also quite long, around 5 hours plus.

So, what is the Lenovo Tab4 8 Plus?

Well, I can say that this tablet has excel on one thing, and that is, having the best Audio on a Tablet available. However, the mediocre display seems to hit it. Nevertheless, it is an overall decent tablet, and an above average multimedia one perfect for watching movies and listening to music.
