Design

Lenovo Tab M10 plus has a slender metal body with rounded edges and very slim bezels around the screen but a slightly thick bezel at the top because of the 5MP camera mounted up there. It has an aluminium slate at the back which also houses around an 8MP camera at the top left corner.

The speaker on this Tab is located both at the top and at the bottom of the tablet. The power button and volume buttons are precisely cut out on the right side as well as the MicroSD card slot. On the left side are pogo pins used to connect your tablet to the smart charging dock. It has a headphone jack at the top of the tab and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.

Display

Lenovo Tab M10 plus has a 10.3-inch IPS LCD display, 16:10 aspect ratio, 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and up to 330 nits of brightness (typical). The slim bezels around this tab offer an 87% screen-to-body ratio which provides a really nice viewing experience with bright colours and detailed content. The touchscreen is really smooth and responsive.

Performance and Battery life

The Lenovo Tab M10 Plus is equipped with an Octa-core MediaTek Helio P22T processor and a 2GB RAM base model which does a pretty good job multi-tasking but the 4GB RAM version does a better job with about 20 opened web browsers loading in less than 20 seconds.

It has a well-amplified dual speaker with average sound quality and Dolby Atmos audio tuning app where you can switch between three presets (music, movie and default) to choose the preset that suits your needs. It also has an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The picture quality of both cameras is not so good as the colours in the pictures appear unnatural but a plus side to it is the fact that it supports facial recognition and works well too.

The Lenovo Tab M10 plus ships with a 7000mAh non-removable Li-Po battery that lasted for about 9hours on a single charge at 150 nits of brightness and on a stable Wi-Fi connection. But at maximum brightness, while streaming HD videos, it would last just about 4 hours.

Buying Guide – Lenovo Tab M10 Plus Review

Lenovo Tab M10 plus is a solid device with a premium design and a very good performance for the price. It also has a decent battery life but It runs on an outdated Android 9 version and the audio and camera quality are both not so enticing with no major update to look forward to. The Samsung Galaxy A 10 is an excellent substitute for the Lenovo Tab M10 plus with better speakers and display quality but if you love Lenovo tabs, the Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab is another good alternative.
