Reviews for the Lenovo Smart Tab M8 TB-8505FS

60% Lenovo Smart Tab M8 review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Did you ever get one of those “as seen on TV” gifts as a kid that made the product seem like the best thing since sliced bread? The commercials always played up the toy’s capabilities, and raised your expectations, driving you to plead with your parents to buy the thing. And then, after receiving it, you’d tinker around with the toy in starry-eyed wonder for all of 30 minutes before being disillusioned and realizing you’re just playing with a plastic box outfitted with a single lightbulb (that wasn’t even included). Yes, I’m looking at you Easy Bake Oven of the 1990s.

Lenovo Smart Tab M8 HD Review
Source: Yugatech English
Given the specs, it’s not something you’d want to have as a productivity device. It’s more like for students looking for a tool where they can stream learning content at home or for anyone who wants to browse the internet or social media accounts casually. The PHP 8,490 (bundled with the smart charging station) seems enticing as well. However, if you don’t need an 8-inch screen, we suggest getting a smartphone instead. There are models out there that can offer you better performance at that price range.

The main audience of the Smart Tab M8 is not for those who are looking for a tablet that can be used for heavyweight productivity. Instead, it is a basic tablet that acts more like a companion for your smart home devices while being a decent device for watching movies.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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 weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


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.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
