Model: With its Tab 4 tablet series, Lenovo brings new models on the table. This time we have the Tab 4 8 Plus. There are models with “Tab 4 8” and now we have attached “Plus” to it. But “Plus” does not indicate any change of size, instead what has changed is inside. While older Tab 4 8 models had a Snapdragon 425 SoC and an Adreno 308 GPU, Plus models come with a Snapdragon 625 and an Adreno 506 GPU. Okay, both are not the greatest, but the latter of course is faster.

The Tab 4 8 Plus is positioned in the middle segment. So, do not expect anything premium. Its quite reasonable price tag actually indicates what it is. The device comes with 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB ROM, 1,920 x 1,200 pixel screen resolution and weighs around 300 grams. Compared to Tab 4 8 models, it is 10 grams lighter, about 1 mm thinner and 1 mm narrower. So size wise, not much has changed. Camera has a 5 MP resolution compared to 2 MP on the Tab 4 8. While much seems to be changed inside, battery size remains the same at 4850 mAh capacity. It may not have an effect on battery life, but better hardware sometimes means more power consumption.

The powerful side of this tablet is its speakers, they satisfy your ears in terms of sound output. You can comfortably watch your favorite show while on-the-go or sitting on your sofa. The design is attractive. You get the feeling of holding something nice, but better cover it since it gets easily scratched. The 5 MP camera is something that we get with very cheap phones nowadays, so do not expect any breathtaking pictures taken with the camera. It is bad.

Now, the Tab 4 8 Plus gives me some mixed feeling about where to place it. On one hand, you get a somewhat strong hardware with a nice resolution screen, on the other hand it scratches easily, its camera is kind of a joke and maybe the worst, there is a possibility this device will not get an Android 8 update. I would have to use this tablet at my home protecting it from being scratched, since it cant take nice pictures this would not be an issue. It can be a nice gift to your parents or to your children since it provides enough power to play games or just for internet browsing. But for my personal usage, if I plan to use my tablet for something more I would not sign up for the Tab 4 8 Plus. It is okay to use astationary, but as soon as you want to take it out for taking pictures, you are done. You will also be facing the risk of scratching your screen. It is up to you, whether it is worth it?

Overall, the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus ZA2F0101SE is a nice tablet with a good price. It may or may not be for you, but it definitely is for someone around you.
