Lenovo’s new Lenovo Tab 4 offers quite a lot of features for an entry-level tablet. It surprises both fans and critics alike with a $179.99 model that is enough for basic utilities but stuns with its 1280×800 monitor.

It’s not top of the line, but it’s definitely fit for those who want the full Lenovo experience on a budget.

The Pros: New Lenovo Tab Has Big Screen, Affordable

Lenovo stuns again with quite a big screen for its Lenovo Tab 4. It’s ten inches of pure screen for you to enjoy, which allows you to see much of your favorite shows and films in full detail.

Its battery can last 11 hours and is more than capable of allowing you to do basic and intermediate tasks with a wide variety of apps. There’s no noticeable lag between them, although it’s not exactly for gaming.

  • It runs on an Android 7.1, which is a fairly recent model of the OS.
  • It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8017 CPU, which makes it an optimum entry-level tablet for those want a basic yet fast enough tablet for their tasks.
  • Its 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage doesn’t make it top of the line, but for a product of its price cap, it’s more than worth it.

All of these features for a $179/AU$329 price tag is sheer impressive, seeing as how the tech giant was able to fit all that tech for a device at such an affordable price.

This makes the Lenovo Tab 4 actually a good tablet versus the much expensive $299 Asus ZenPad 3S 10, and while it does have more features and a nicer screen, the Tab 4 makes up for its affordable detail.

The Cons: Tab 4 Is Heavier, A Bit Underwhelming

The Lenovo Tab 4 houses incredible features given its rather sleek appearance, but it’s also a tad heavier given its components.

It weighs one pound, which can become a bit overbearing if you hold it for a long time.

Of course, given its $179 price tag, the Lenovo Tab 4 and its performance isn’t on par with other high-end Lenovo products. Sometimes, it feels a bit underwhelming, given the expectations one might have to its initial appearance.

Moreover, given the rather “entry level” nature of the tablet, it would naturally feel as if it won’t perform compared to other more modern tablets of the modern era. Then again, it’s also important to remember that the Lenovo Tab 4 is more for the budget than full-blown utility.


In the end, the Lenovo Tab 4 makes for a wonderful tablet for anyone who needs a cheap yet effective offering from Lenovo. The brand strikes awe in its fans for a new affordable piece of tech that is perfect for those who need a tablet but don’t necessarily have all the money to buy more high-tech models.
