ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF THE LENOVO TAB M10 PLUS GEN 3 IN 2022
Before getting acquainted with users’ opinions about the tablet on the Internet, it is necessary to analyze its characteristics from a more objective point of view. The value for money offered by this model means that its specifications are much higher than what we can find in the competition, starting with its MediaTek Helio G80 processor. Launched in 2022, its power should be enough for content consumption and office applications, although performance is not the tablet’s greatest strength. We must add to this the limitations imposed by the small amount of RAM, 4 GB, although the storage options range from 64 to 128 to 64 GB. Still, the standard used is quite slow. (eMMC 5.1). The good news is that they are expandable with a micro SD card up to 1TB.
If we focus on the positive points of the third iteration, this model stands out for having a 10.6-inch screen with 2K resolution (yes, you read that right) and IPS technology. The maximum brightness of 400 limits its display outdoors, so we will have to use it in a shady environment or, at least, without direct sunlight. Another aspect in which it stands out has to do precisely with sound since it has four stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos certification and frontal projection. And as if this were not enough, it comes standard with Android 12, so it is expected to be updated to Android 13 sooner rather than later.
Regarding the photographic section, the manufacturer’s commitment is based on an 8-megapixel rear camera with dynamic focus and an 8-megapixel front camera with fixed focus. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not specified the focal length. Still, everything indicates that we find a fairly fair quality, so its use could be limited to scanning documents and making video calls in good lighting. Of course, at least it has facial unlocking since it lacks a fingerprint sensor.
As for the rest of the specifications, it has dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as 4G with a specific LTE version. Its design is based on aluminum and integrates a 7,500 mAh battery, giving us a whole day of work according to the brand itself.
POSITIVE LENOVO TAB M10 PLUS 3 REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
Among the most praised tablet features by Amazon buyers is the screen quality, especially the definition. The same goes for the sound, which provides a good stereo experience in quality and volume. Construction materials are also mentioned because they are based on metal and glass, usually intended for higher ranges. In addition to expanding storage space via a micro SD card, including USB Type-C is another reason to buy this model, something that, for example, the cheaper iPad cannot boast.
NEGATIVE LENOVO TAB M10 PLUS GEN 3 REVIEWS WITH PROBLEMS, GLITCHES AND DRAWBACKS
The tablet’s performance is one of the negative points mentioned the most in the comments. The fair power of its processor, added to the low amount of RAM, causes certain applications to perform poorly. The sound quality is also mentioned when we set it to its maximum volume, as well as the contrast and colors of the screen, which are far from what models like the iPad can offer.
