Lenovo Tab M8 HD: Slim tablet for browsing with useful software additions
After our review of the Lenovo Tab M7, we were now able to take a look at the Lenovo Tab M8 HD and were very pleased. Its affordable price does not impact the good workmanship and relatively modern design, which differentiates it from other affordable tablets. The connectivity is sufficient for everyday use as long as users do not need any particularly demanding applications. The device is available for around $140 and offers fast Wi-Fi and a very long battery life. It's a good offer.
The right software also plays an important role in the use of a tablet. Users usually have to choose between a bloated system or stock Android - this can be a difficult decision, particularly for beginners. Lenovo has included its own tablet manager that combines many functions within a single app - this makes it easier for users to change settings.
As some manufacturers pride themselves in being suitable for children, having an easy way to make tablets suitable for young users is important. Lenovo has created its own kid's app with which parents can ensure their child is using an age-appropriate interface as well as limit the content and time spent on the device. This is not connected to an online account, as is the case with the Kindle devices from Amazon.
Lenovo has managed to combine a useful device with an affordable price tag that offers both pure Android and proprietary software. The icing on the cake is that users can access all this without having to register for an online account.
