Lenovo Smart Tab M10 TB-X605F

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.

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 Review – Budget Friendly Companion Tablet
Source: NLT English
Lenovo Smart Tab M8 is currently priced at P8,490. It is a great tablet for family use, not a gaming performance tablet but a great day to day device for entertainment or playing casual games. Convenience and connectivity is the main reason to buy this device. Also thanks to google assistant this device can operate hands-free and will be your great companion when cooking, productivity, and many more. A family-friendly device and perfect for your kids with just a budget-friendly price.

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.

Source: Techaeris English
Android tablets have been given a whole new life now that Google Assistant is around. That new life is a smart display. While you could use most Android tablets as a smart display, it really works well when a dock is part of the equation. The Lenovo Smart TAB M10 FHD Plus is the latest from Lenovo, and it’s affordable.

Overall this tablet is a budget-friendly, and family-friendly. Your companion for day to day use, at home, at school, or even at work. At a P13,990 price tag, it is a better deal and it can give you reliability, convenience, and comfortability. A fun, worry-free device for your kids and for your entertainment needs.

Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus offers a nice display, premium build, decent performance, good speakers, LTE connectivity, a smart charging dock, and long battery life. At PHP 13,990 (4GB + 64GB), it can be a bit pricey for some but still competitive considering the price jump you’ll have to take if you want a beefier tablet. It would have been nicer, though, if it came with a pen and an upgrade to Android 10. Still, given its functionality and features, we can recommend this tablet for students looking for an online learning device.

Source: Laptop Mag English
Yes, the Smart Tab M10 Plus is, indeed, a budget tablet for money-conscious users, so I understand that I can’t be too tough on this Lenovo slate. But looking at other wallet-friendly tablets we’ve reviewed, I can’t help but feel that there are better devices on the market, especially if you’re seeking a tablet that has long battery life and zippy performance.

Comment

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.
