Lenovo Tab M10 Plus Gen 3 review verdict: Multimedia is the main focus of the affordable tablet
In our review, the third-generation Tab M10 Plus proves to be a good mid-range tablet in the lower price segment with a focus on media consumption. Thanks to the four speakers, great battery life, and the relatively high-resolution 2K IPS panel, the Lenovo Tab is ideally suited for playing videos and movies. Especially since streaming content can be viewed in high resolution on the 10.6-inch display thanks to the DRM-L1 certification. Furthermore, the aluminum case adds a certain value to the mid-range tablet, even if the glued on areas leave ugly residues on the metal surface.
Nevertheless, the third-generation Tab M10 Plus isn't designed for productive work. Unlike the sibling models of the P series, the affordable mid-range tablet doesn't have the contact elements at the bottom of the case that are needed for the magnetic keyboard cover. But the Tab M10 Plus Gen 3 still supports the optionally available Lenovo Precision Pen 2 with its 4,096 pressure levels. Users who want to use the pen input will currently have to invest another 50 Euros (~$51) in a Precision Pen 2.
Besides the more comprehensive accessories, the Tab P11 Plus sibling model is significantly more powerful than the Tab M10 Plus Gen 3, while it also offers better features. However, the two Lenovo tablets are on par in terms of price, so that the advantages of last year's mid-range tablet have to be weighed against the Tab M10 Plus' slightly longer software support.
