3 Reasons For

Lenovo Has Good Reviews for Its Tablets

On average Lenovo tablets have good reviews as do all tablets produced by Lenovo.

Just Released Five Months Ago

This tablet computer has only been on the market for five months. Newer tablets like this one are likely to use better technology.

Very Light

The Lenovo Thinkpad 8 is fairly light (only 329 grams) compared to most of the other new tablets. Similar spec tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Thinkpad 8 have weights of between 200g and 2.7kg, and the average weight is 640g.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Not 4G

The Thinkpad 8 is not 4G. Most of the other recently released tablets are also not 4G.

Chart Edit

Not 3G

The Lenovo Thinkpad 8 is not 3G. Most of the other tablet computers that came out in the last year are also not 3G.

Chart Edit

Very Small Display Diagonal

The average display diagonal of tablet computers that were released in the last year is 10", and the display diagonals range from 7" to 19". With a display diagonal of only 8 inches, the Thinkpad 8 has one of the smaller display diagonals amongst tablets of this age.

We compared all the other 8" tablets to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung smt3100[plb_3314856_price] is also worth considering.

If this tablet computer display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Archos 90[plb_3874850_price] (8.9"), or the Samsung 9.6[plb_3841807_price] (9.6") which is also higher rated.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

At only 16 gigabytes, the Lenovo Thinkpad 8 has a quite small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets that are a similar age to the Thinkpad 8. Similar spec tablets that came out around the same time as the Thinkpad 8 have internal storage capacitys of between 4GB and 1.1TB, and the average internal storage capacity is 120GB.

We compared all the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablets to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung smt3100[plb_3314856_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to look at the Archos 90[plb_3874850_price] (32GB) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Frequency

The average processor frequency of tablets that have been available for around the same time as the Thinkpad 8 is 1.5GHz. With a processor frequency of only 1 gigahertz, the Thinkpad 8 has one of the slower processor frequencys amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age.

If you want a tablet with a faster processor frequency then you might want to look at the Samsung 9.6[plb_3841807_price] (1.3GHz), or the Archos 90[plb_3874850_price] (1.3GHz) which is also higher rated.

2 Other reasons to consider the Lenovo Thinkpad 8

Four Processor Coress

Compared to the other 66 tablets that were launched in the last 12 months that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the Thinkpad 8 has four processor coress which is average.

Tablet computers with more processor coress that might also be worth looking at include the Samsung SM-T580[plb_3831286_price] (8 processor coress), or the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus[plb_3976348_price] (8 processor coress).

Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

With a rear camera resolution (numeric) of 5 megapixels, the Lenovo Thinkpad 8 has a relatively average rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been available for the last year.

If you would prefer a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) then you might want to consider the SM-T813N + Cover[pl_3829755_price] (8MP), or the SM-T580[pl_3831286_price] (8MP) both from Samsung.
