Comment

Model:

While most tablets are only used as an oversized Android device for general browsing and playing videos, Lenovo has decided to change that assumption all together with its latest Lenovo Smart Tab M10 TB-X605F. Being a smart tablet, it’s taking the best combination of smart technology and Android technology to a whole new level. Well, having been nominated as a finalist for Best of CES in 2019, this tab definitely needs to be noted, because  it can function as a typical Android tablet while it can also be placed within a companion Bluetooth speaker dock to act as an Alexa-powered smart display, quite similar to Amazon’s Echo Show. The Bluetooth speaker not only features a Bluetooth connection for user convenience and comfort, it also utilizes physical volume control. The speaker can be used entirely on its own, as well, by connecting it to other devices via Bluetooth to act as a speaker. There is obviously some level of versatility with this device that can really delight users.

This functionality of the Lenovo Smart Tab also provides a better user experience, since, as far as general tablet usage is concerned, most of the time users tend to skip recharging the device when it is not in use, leading to a complete drainage of the battery when it really needs to be used. However, with this new smart invention, this issue can be handled in a much smarter way, as there is definitely a use for the tablet as a smart display, even when it is not used as a typical Android tablet. Such an awesome thought process and creation by Lenovo definitely deserves accolades.

As far as the display is concerned, the Smart Tab M10 has a Full-HD 10.1-inch screen for a greater viewing pleasure. The texts and photos displayed are really sharp and account for an awesome overall user experience. Despite having a great level of brightness for inside and outside usage in the shadows, this tablet is obviously quite dark to be used in direct sunlight. In terms of overall display brightness, the Lenovo Smart Tab P10 can be said to be better than the M10. This might be a slight drawback for this product, but the wide viewing angles of the IPS panel incorporated within the Smart Tab M10 should not be disregarded.

On the whole, in comparison to the P10, the M10 is definitely cheaper in terms of price, but it does fall short when it comes to specifications. While the P10 delivers 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of storage, the M10 only delivers a maximum of 3 GB of RAM along with 32 GB of storage space. The P10 also comes with a fingerprint reader, which is excluded from the M10. So, the M10 definitely delivers a mid-range smart tablet experience for its price, but it obviously is not the best one out there.

Qualcomm Adreno 506: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 625 SoC and based on the new 500-series architecture with support for Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2) and UBWC.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

SD 450: Lower mainstream octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC clocked at up to 1.8 GHz and the Adreno 506 GPU, a LPDDR3 single channel memory controller as well as an X9 LTE (Cat. 7 300 / 150 Mbps) modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
