Lenovo Tab S8 hands-on review

 

Unlike some recent 8in tablets we've seen – Sony's Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 – the Lenovo Tab S8 will start at £149 making it extremely affordable and it will hit the shops this month. That's an impressive price when you...

Lenovo Tab S8 Tablet Review

 

Light as a feather. Lenovo's Tab S8 does not even weigh 300 grams but is quite a bargain. It offers a Full HD screen, an 8-megapixel camera, and front-facing speakers for 199 Euros (~$225). Discover whether Lenovo's tight calculation is also worthwhile...

Full HD screen, Accurate touchscreen, Decent battery life, High performance, Sharp camera pictures, Non-slip and lightweight casing, Low temperature development, Rich-sounding speakers, Great performance for money ratio

Pressure-sensitive casing, Creaking chassis, GPS needs long for localization, Below-average Wi-Fi reception, 12 month warranty only, Somewhat thick casing

Buyers who do not need the prestige of an iPad Mini 3 or the coolness of a Nexus 9 will find Lenovo's offer attractive. The Tab S8 sports a sharp Full HD screen, decent camera equipment, relatively rich-sounding speakers, high performance, and feasible...

Lenovo Tab S8 is a slim and affordable 8-incher

 

Starting at only $200 (which converts to about £120, or AU$215), the Lenovo Tab S8 packs a promising list of mid-range specs in a slim and lightweight package. Announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin, the 8-inch tablet is scheduled to hit stores in September.

The 8-inch Lenovo tablet will also be available with high-speed 4G LTE capabilities, but more information on availability has yet to be revealed. Check back with CNET when we get our hands on the Lenovo Tab S8 for a more in-depth look.
