Lenovo Tab M10 2022 (Gen 3): An inexpensive tablet that skimps on a little bit too much
Compared with an iPad, for example, around €200 (US$217) isn't overly pricey for a tablet like the Lenovo Tab M10 2022. Even so, you as a customer are still going to expect a solid device that does its job in everyday use.
Our in-depth review of the Lenovo Tab M10 2022 has revealed that this is definitely what you'll get with the M10: stable Wi-Fi 5 with reception good enough for larger flats, a stylish and sturdy metal chassis, and a GPS module – even on our non-LTE review model. As a matter of fact, variants with cellular connectivity are available in Europe from various retailers, such as cyberport.de.
However, those who are expecting an X factor are going to be disappointed with the third-gen Lenovo Tab M10. With the tablet, it is more about making compromises. For instance, its display is fairly dark and not very suitable for outdoor use. Its battery life is also not exactly as good as what comparable device are capable of. The speakers are usable, but don't expect to get fantastic sound.
Then there are also other drawbacks such as high temperatures under load and the SoC's somewhat poorer graphics performance compared with other tablets in this price range. But the outdated software annoyed us the most out of all things. Despite Lenovo's promises, the device still hadn't received an update to Android 12, and its security updates were six months old at the time of publishing the review. Making things worse are the heaps of unnecessary preinstalled apps that take up storage space and irritate the user with notifications.
