Lenovo p8 tablet - £115 @ Gearbest

50
Found 6th Sep 2017
Lenovo p8
3gb ram
Snapdragon 625
16gb, takes 64gb SD card
Dual band WiFi
Android 6

Seems like this could be a decent budget tablet for my soon to be 8 year old.
Good for watching YouTube, bit of gaming, bit of homework/word-processing practice with a btooth keyboard.

Alternative to the fire hd8 at £90 for ad free version.

I know some hate gearbest, but never had an issue myself.

1920x1200...that will look nice at 8 inches.
Original Poster
Only a few reviews around and none from the big sites, all seem quite positive and all very happy with the screen for the price.
I'm very tempted but probably gonna hold out til black friday
Tempting. Heat added
This should be a really good tablet for the price range, I had an S8 for a little while and that was really good, same screen I think but this has a better CPU and more ram.

Bloody auto correct, didn't notice the heartbeat/gearbest mess.

Up to 3.15% cashback From TCB as well, only £3.62 but probably enough for a case from GB
Hot. Half the price of the very similar specced 8 inch Lenovo Tab 4 plus
Very nice deal. If i hadn't already gone for the £59.99 Amazon HD8 (2017) deal recently i would be very tempted. Heat from me.

Wife wouldn't complain...
Good CPU, good RAM, good screen. Whats not to like? Hot.
This is worth it over the Amazon Fire HD 8 just for the screen being way better.
Worth getting now for Christmas or are we likely to see better deals? What's peoples thoughts?

Tab 4 plus has Android 7 (this model is Android 6). I don't believe one increment of Android is worth the extra cash.

Techtablets.com has given this a very good review. (That site, I find, is a reliable reviews site.)
Looks like a nice tab for the money, but this is humorous

What's the warranty like? It looks like a really good spec but I'm always concerned with buying anything more than a few quid from China that if anything went wrong the warranty would be non-existent?

The tab 4 plus is £250 from Argos and really not a big upgrade.

Yep! You basically get no warranty, and even if you did dealing with Gearbest would be a nightmare.
This is sold in dollars $

$150 is currently £115, gearbest allow you to pay in £
But if it's in dollars does that mean it's coming from America and then would you not have to pay import charge? I'm new to all of this.

She can try out my 7" if she wants (Asus)

Comes from China.
Use the free shipping option for very low chance of import charges.
Have used gearbest 10 times this year and not once been charged by customs.
Can take a while to arrive but longest I have waited is 10 days
Showing up as £123.23p for me.

Shame it's Android 6.0. 8.0 is out now. Looking around there is no mention of any upgrade coming any time soon. Still, this is a hot price.

Android 8 isn't out now at all, it's very recently been announced, so this isn't very far out of date at all.

I mentioned that I used to have the S8, that got an update, but it was a long time coming after release.

Still showing 115 for me.
Maybe for registered account only?
Not bad for the price but the Amazon deal a couple days ago was enough to convince me. I managed to get Google play installed as well.

Screen here is good though. Will make all the difference reading them comics

For the £, I'm not too concerned about it only having Marshmallow as it is a great OS with great battery life. Apart from the split screen mode, I think its better than Nougat. Both my One Plus 3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 have taken a hit in the battery department with Nougat.
Updated my Nook HD+ a couple of days ago to Android 7 and it's turned an unusual tablet into a lovely e-reader that is now actually capable of browsing Chrome and performing basic tasks. I don't NEED this but my God do I want it. If only the missus didn't get her knickers in a twist with every technique purchase I make. Inevitably from this site. Sigh.
Is it showing as 123.33 for everyone now I guess?

Shows as 123 for a second then switches to 115.
Think you need to have an account with gearbest already
Shows as 7 days left at this price
Edited by: "willevans716533" 7th Sep 2017
It showed as that price earlier for me but not anymore.... When I was looking earlier I think it suggested that stock was limited. With an account the price is still 123

Mine was a link from an email initially, but still shows the same price if I just search the gearbest website
