After the Tab 3 debuted with awesome features and low price tag, the Lenovo Tab 4 comes with better hardware and battery life. Performance-wise, the Lenovo tab 4 stands out among others in its price range. Luckily, buyers not only can enjoy incredible specs, but they also have two screen options. The first model features an 8-inch screen, sold at $129.99. The second one has a 10.1-inch screen and slightly more expensive ($179.99).

Design Lenovo Tab 4

Of course, there is striking difference between the two because they differ in size. The smaller one weighs only 0.7 pounds and has a dimension of 8.3 x 4.9 x 0.3 inches. While you can find tablets with similar specs at lower prices, what sets the Tab 4 apart from others is its premium design. It is not easy to find a tablet this cheap with such excellent build quality. The bigger one is equally portable despite having a larger screen.

Display Lenovo Tab 4

The tab 4 has a display with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. This doesn’t seem impressive since it puts the pixel density at 188 PPI for the smaller model. However, if you’re a former user of the Tab 3, you will understand that resolution is not everything. Many mid-range tablets fail to serve quality displays, but the screen of the Tab 4 doesn’t look cheap although the price begs to differ. Text and images look clear. In terms of brightness, it emits up to 350. While not the highest, it’s still usable outdoors. The larger model features a lower pixel density. At 1280 by 800 pixels, it only delivers up to 150 PPI. It’s a bit low, so if you care about detail, the smaller one will suit you more.

Performance Lenovo Tab 4

Both models are powered by a Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 64-bit quad-core processor. On the paper, the performance is comparable to the Amazon fire HD 8. Everything can be done swiftly, from accessing emails, web browsing, to gaming. The last one, however, is pretty limited. We suggest you install only light games on the device. It’s for budget-conscious buyers, after all. So, performance wouldn’t be super snappy like the average high end tablet. Complementing the processor is 2GB of RAM. It is more than enough to handle multiple apps at the same time. The internal storage amounts to 16GB. For many of us, it doesn’t feel sufficient, but don’t worry because the Lenovo Tab 4 has a microSD card slot. As for the operating system, the device runs Android 7.1 Nougat. You can enjoy all the features that come with the new version. (Also read: Lenovo Miix 720 Review)

Camera Lenovo Tab 4

Tablets are rarely designed for photography purposes. The Lenovo Tab 4 isn’t any different. It only comes with a 5-MP rear camera. If you need better camera specs, consider the Smartphones. Lenovo has rolled out some of the most amazing camera phones. The front-facing camera is only 2 megapixels, so the quality is nothing to write home about. What about the results? Photos are good, but make sure they’re taken in broad daylight. Otherwise, they wouldn’t show much detail because the tablet has no LED flash.
