For $130, the Tab 4 8 is a solid tablet with good battery life. It's well-suited for media consumption, kids, and travel, especially if you need access to the Google Play store. But if you can live with Amazon's highly modified version of Android (which includes a proprietary app store), you'll get nearly the same level of performance with the Fire HD 8 for $80. It's the best tablet you can get for under $100, and our Editors' Choice. If you need connectivity wherever you go, the $125 Alcatel A30 is the most affordable tablet that can keep you connected via cellular data. And if you're on the fence about Android, the latest Apple iPad is significantly more expensive, but offers great value for the money.

With the proliferation of cheap Windows based tablets and convertibles it’s a little hard to come by decent android tablets these days and if there are they are exorbitantly expensive. However, this doesn’t stop Lenovo from releasing the Lenovo Tab 4 8-inch which proves to be an affordable Android Nougat based tablet. Aesthetic-wise the Tab 4 is your generic square slate design which isn’t bad since simplicity is the key here. The Tab 4 chassis construction is pretty sleek which makes it look more expensive than it really is with both glass fronts and backs. While this is nice visually it is horrible under normal usage as this means the tablet is a fingerprint nightmare if the user doesn’t take care of it well or even add a case cover. In terms of hardware the Tab 4 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC, 2GB of memory and 16 or 32GB of internal storage depending on configuration. Because it is using a low-end Snapdragon it is only appropriate that the included display panel be not more than HD as this can severely tax the processor when under gaming load. Although it should be noted that the Tab 4 does come in 10-inch and Plus variants which see a significant bump in hardware and screen resolution. The Tab 4 includes a front 2MP camera and a rear 5MP camera which is substantial at best but is naturally better than not having any at all.

While 16 or even 32 GB of storage might be enough for light users or kids it should be noted that it still can be expanded via the microSD slot which should be handy. Over at the audio department the Tab 4 is equipped with dual front firing Dolby Atmos speakers which is great since that means cupping won’t be necessary and that users should be able to get the best out of the speakers even if they aren’t the best out there. The equipped IPS HD panel is more than sufficient when it comes to general gaming and web surfing although the color reproduction isn’t as vibrant as those on premium tablets it should be more than good enough for your daily user. At 89 percent of the sRGB spectrum it even trumps its nearest competitors not to mention the display is quite bright to the viewing. As a tablet battery life is always an important mention with the Tab 4 scoring 10 hours and 7 minutes at roughly half brightness while web surfing which is all to impressive, while it may not be the longest on the scoreboard it sure does have a take home on endurance ratings. Software-wise the Tab 4 is preloaded with Android Nougat 7.1 with some Google apps. Bottom line is at its given price the Tab 4 does surpass most expectations and that’s only for the lower end variant of the Tab 4, most likely the higher end variant of the Tab 4 would impress many if not most users.

Qualcomm Adreno 308: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 425 SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

425: Entry-level SoC that was announced in February 2016. It integrates 4 ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at up to 1.4 GHz, an LPDDR3 memory controller and wireless radios for WiFi and 4G/LTE.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This display format is in the mid-range for smartphones. It offers a compromise between good visibility, details and resolution on the screen, and you can still fit it into trouser pockets.

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.

75.84%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
