Having a Smart Display in your living space makes for a great central hub where you and other family members can check schedules, play music or Youtube video, make video calls, control your Google or Alexa integrated home, and display favorite photos. Having that display also function as a family tablet when it’s not docked adds extra convenience and value. The Lenovo Smart Tab M8 and Smart Tab M10 are 2-in-1 devices that can serve as smart displays or as stand-alone tablets.

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.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.
In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.
In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.
73.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
