FYI, this is the same price on the Lenovo education store, so you can get the usual 10% off on top with the newsletter discount code

I've got a Lenovo TAB 4 8 Plus and can recommend these devices based on build quality.

The spec on this device is pretty good for the price (RAM and storage), and I'm tempted to upgrade from my 4 Plus 8. For a device this size, though, the 5000mAh battery is a bit cheap, imho.

Although this device has 1080p display it will not stream from Netflix, Disney+ etc at that resolution as it does not support the relevant Widevine L1 DRM system. If it's important to you to be watching at 1080p on a 10" screen you may want to avoid on that basis. I certainly can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on such a small screen.

Also worth noting that this is currently running Pie, even though Android 10 was generally available when the device launched. I don't think it's going to get Android 10 unless the LineageOS guys create an unofficial ROM for it. There is none available at present, so you could be in for a long wait if you want that functionality.
The battery on my lenovo tablet swelled up. Hesitant to buy another one now.
They blamed me for it too, said I shouldn't leave it charging overnight. Erm, every good lithium charger I ever saw cuts off when it hits 4.2v (or whatever the pack size is). So yeah , be warned.


They also left my tablet on a really old OS and stopped providing support for it just a year after it was released.

Good tablet had one for a year
Edited by: "tasker" 18th May
Bought one from Costco last week, seems like a fine tablet and much quicker than my 18 month old Samsung it replaced
It has been this price for weeks, before that it was on offer.

It is impossible, this is the 2nd Gen, only came out fewf months ago.
Was screen resolution? Imagine FHD?
from Costco page:

  • Premium look and feel - Up to 93% full metal back cover
  • Narrow Bezel - Up to 87% panel-to-body ratio and up to 4.6mm slim border
  • 10.3" FHD Display

  • Never miss a moment - 8MP rear + 5MP front cameras

Anyone know if this has exFAT support? I’ve been out of the Android OS loop for a while.
If you can't get one from Costco, Very have them for sale at £200.

I had one of these and did a simple review on Youtube, then I had to return it even I got it for 149.98, went for a Samsung S5e which is brilliant (better screen, better Android support, Netflix HD) for £250.

Is the Android 10 part applicable to all though, barring very few top end devices? Serious question as I'm just sifting around for a 10 inch Android Tablet and many in this price range have Android 8.

The battery life on this device is putting me off a bit though the reviews suggest very good build quality.

Well, I just bought an £80 Nokia 1.3 phone with 1GB RAM and 16GB storage for my step-dad that had Android 10 on it, hardly "top end" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

A phone not a tablet though - what cheap / lower mid range tablets have Android 10?

Well, that was exactly my point: if Nokia can be bothered to put Android 10 on such a cheap, low spec phone (and guarantee updates for 2 years), you'd think tablet manufacturers of devices costing twice as much would do the same...
Oh yes fair enough - I'm just looking at this tablet V other similar ones and it seems like you have to accept Android 9 or else spend a few more quid for a higher spec tablet.

I have an 8 inch Lenovo Yoga tablet and the software updates stopped years ago, and there aren't any on developer sites either, so I'd much prefer to get Android 10 if possible.
I'm still running Pie (well, LineageOS 16) on my Lenovo TAB 8 plus 4 and it's plenty good enough for me, tbh. Google are still producing security updates for it (latest update for it is from May the 13th).

Every battery circuit should have protection inbuilt. So effectively swollen battery just either shows signs of poor quality, poor current control or protection circuit malfunction. If device was under warranty you should of had replacement or fix free of charge. As for blame leaving over night its complete nonsense. All my devices are charging overnight, batteries can only take as much as they can and no more. Issue is most of the time when current limiting circuit is faulty allowing high currents to boil battery during charge! This is manufacturing fault, nothing to do with user!
As for OS support Lenovo is well known now for their short support, they more interested to sell new and hardly support lasts more than 6 months even on new products Well at least you will get regular app updates over google store

Exactly, I've left every phone I've ever had charging overnight. I leave my canon camera battery charging overnight. Pretty poor design if leaving it plugged into a charge caused this. Unfortunately it was out of Lenovo warranty, but I argued that 1 year is not right and that we have longer laws if the product is faulty and that I believed it was a design flaw. They chose not to respond, so I chose not buy Lenovo again.

Unfortunately these days batteries are counted as consumables and warranty is always limited in some cases as example to 6 months. Law is not clear enough to enforce manufacturer to cover all parts on device so essentially we end up with throw away items which in most cases are fully functional but as example battery is not holding charge any-more. As batteries are inbuilt, cost of replacement is always higher that device itself so you end up buying new one. I think EU was planing to release law in order to enforce manufacturers reverse back to swappable batteries on devices to reduce landfill of electronics but I doubt this ever gonna happen.
Good it's cheap by a tenner. But Costco gives 2 year warranty, very doesn't.

Does it include the stylus? And how's note taking experience? Can I put my hand on the screen while writing? Do you recommend this tablet for note taking?
Does it include the charging stand?
