76.8% Lenovo Tab M10 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
The Lenovo Tab M10 is a budget tablet that is fun for the whole family. The tablet includes child-friendly features and offers a well-rounded spec sheet for its price. However, the cheaper alternative to the Tab P10 has its work cut out to stake a claim in a saturated and competitive tablet market.

75.4% Lenovo Tab M7 Tablet Review: The Kindle killer with Android Go | Notebookcheck
With the second generation of the Tab M7, Lenovo brings a very low-priced tablet to the market, which, despite its weak hardware, cuts a very fine figure. Thanks to Android Go, there is no unnecessary bloatware, and for only 79 Euros (~$88), the tablet delivers almost everything you can expect from such a device.

Lenovo Tab M10 FHD Plus

The Lenovo M10 Plus is the newest Lenovo tablet to enter the market. It comes with a 10.3-inch IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The display provides a normal brightness level that is definitely suitable for most situations. By default, everything looks natural, and it is obviously nice to be used. As for the viewing angles, they look normal, with typical fading at an angle, but without distortion of other colors. The tablet fits a larger display in a smaller chassis than its predecessor, mainly due to the shrunken surrounding bezels. The front of the tablet has a relatively thin bezel. The device is available in two color options, namely Gray and Platinum.

In terms of performance, an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22T processor has been incorporated within the tablet to run everything along with up to 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage. However, there is also an option to increase the storage further by up to 256 GB. The processor itself includes eight Cortex-A53 cores, four of which work with a clock frequency of up to 2.3 GHz, and four cores with a maximum clock frequency of up to 1.8 GHz. The Rogue GE8320 graphics accelerator is from PowerVR. Apart from that, the Lenovo M10 Plus runs with the older Android 9 Pie version with little to no customizations from the brand. While there is a headphone jack built into the tablet, Lenovo has also included a pair of stereo speakers for a better audio experience.

As far as the battery is concerned, the M10 Plus has a 5,000mAh battery pack that is charged through the dedicated USB Type-C port of the tablet. For users who are always on the move, the tablet also includes an option to latch onto a 4G LTE network thanks to its SIM-card slot. Apart from that, this device provides dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 along with FM Radio and GPS. In addition, the tablet has been incorporated with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel sensor on the opposite side for user convenience.

The tablet also supports a unique Google Assistant Ambient Mode, which allows the users to use the tablet as a Google Home screen that always waits for the ‘OK, Google’ command from the users using a pair of onboard microphones. At the purchase of the tablet, there is furthermore an inclusion of a Smart Charging Station which connects the tablet via pogo pins to keep it charged up without having to worry about the battery life when the smart screen is being used. Lenovo also has included a Kid’s Mode in the tablet with kids-specific content to keep them entertained and engaged.

In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
