Good Brand

Tablet computers manufactured by Lenovo have an average rating of 83 out of 100, which is in the top 22% of all tablet computer brands that we have looked at.

A few customers who bought the product mentioned that it was easy to use. Two years ago A. Jones wrote in their Lenovo Thinkpad 8 review “Especially if doing graphics or some development work having the full HD screen is very handy”. A. Jones also mentioned “Places that seem to use the Windows font settings as a guide, mixed with other areas of text that are tiny”.

Just Released Four Months Ago

The Thinkpad 8 was only relased by Lenovo four months ago.

Nice Design

One person who reviewed the Lenovo Thinkpad 8 reckoned that it was good looking. A. Jones said two years ago “I know PS is pretty demanding” in their Lenovo Thinkpad 8 review but they gave it a score of 3 stars.

Reasonably Priced

Robust

One person concluded that it was well made.

Very Light

The Thinkpad 8 is one of the lighter new similar spec tablet computers (only 329 grams) amongst comparable spec tablets of this age. Across all the tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Thinkpad 8 the weights range from 240g to 2.7kg.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

Across all the tablet computers that were released around the same time as the Thinkpad 8 the widths range from 100mm to 460mm, and the average width is 240mm. With a width of only 125 millimeters, the Thinkpad 8 is quite narrow compared to most of the other latest tablet computers.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not 4G Compatible

The Thinkpad 8 is not 4G compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec tablets that have been around for the last year are also not 4G compatible.

If you want a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might want to consider the Galaxy View, or the SM-W708Y both from Samsung or the Lenovo Thinkpad 10 which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3G Compatible

The Thinkpad 8 is not 3G compatible. Most of the other comparable spec tablets that are a similar age to the Thinkpad 8 are also not 3G compatible.

Tablets which are 3G compatible that might be worth considering include the Samsung SM-T285N, the ODYS RAPID 7 LTE, or the Mediacom 7.0 iPro 3G which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Screen Size

Comparable spec tablet computers that came out in the last 12 months have screen sizes of between 7" and 19", and the average screen size is 10". The Lenovo Thinkpad 8 has one of the smaller screen sizes (only 8 inches) amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age.

There are a number of other 8" tablets currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the SM-T350N Galaxy Tab A (£113.33), the SM-T719N (£392.97), or the smt3100 (£197.73) all from Samsung.

If you would prefer a tablet with a larger screen size then you might also want to consider the SM-T561N (£178.74) (9.6"), or the 9.6 (£144.04) (9.6") both from Samsung or the Archos 90 (£69.99) (8.9") which also has a higher rating.

Very Short Maximum Battery Life

The average maximum battery life of similar spec tablets that have been on the market for the last year is 68h. At only 8 hours, the Lenovo Thinkpad 8 has a fairly short maximum battery life compared to most of the other newly released tablets.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 1 gigahertz, the Lenovo Thinkpad 8 has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst tablet computers of this age. Across all the tablet computers that were released in the last 12 months the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 2.5GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 1.5GHz.

There are a number of alternative 1GHz processor clock speed tablet computers currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the GT-P3113, or the GT-P5110 both from Samsung or the Lexibook Junior 2.

Tablets with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the SM-T561N (£178.74) (1.3GHz and higher rated), or the 9.6 (£144.04) (1.3GHz and higher rated) both from Samsung or the Archos 90 (£69.99) (1.3GHz and higher rated).

3 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo Thinkpad 8

Four Processor Cores

Compared to the other 61 tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the Thinkpad 8 that we have assessed the number of processor cores of, the number of processor cores on the Thinkpad 8 is four which is average.

There are a number of other 4 processor core tablets currently available that you might also want to look at including the SM-T813N + Cover (£340.26), the SM-T813N, or the SM-T561 Galaxy Tab E (£171.99) all from Samsung which has better reviews.

Average Rear Camera Resolution

At 5 megapixels, the Thinkpad 8 has a relatively typical rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been around for the last year.

We compared all the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (£1,099.99), the Samsung SM-W708Y, and the Lenovo Thinkpad 10 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a higher rear camera resolution then you might also want to look at the Surface Pro 4 (8MP), or the Surface Pro 4 (£2,799.99) (8MP) both from Microsoft or the Samsung SM-T813N + Cover (£340.26) (8MP) which also has a higher rating.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 16 gigabytes, the Lenovo Thinkpad 8 has a pretty average internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets that were released in the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 16GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the i2 10, or the 7.0 iPro 3G both from Mediacom or the Samsung smt3100 (£197.73).

If you want a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Archos 90 (£69.99) (32GB), the Samsung SM-T813N + Cover (£340.26) (32GB), or the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (128GB) which is also higher rated.
