Thoughts and Conclusion
The Lenovo Tab M10 Plus (Gen 3) offers good performance for a mid-range tablet Between the octa-core processor and the 4GB RAM, there’s enough power to satisfy users who desire a lean-back experience. Enough to handle everyday tasks such as web browsing, media playback, and light productivity work, it’s an affordable tablet for the “every” man.
The tablet’s performance is smooth and responsive, and it can run multiple apps simultaneously without any lag or stuttering. It’s designed for gaming but the dedicated graphics processing unit (GPU) lets it handle some light gaming. It may struggle with more demanding games such as first-person shooters and battle royale titles.
The tablet has a modern and elegant design with a slim mostly metal body with narrow bezels. Moreover, it feels sturdy and well-built, especially given its price. The tablet’s compact size and portability lets us carry it around and use it on the go without issue.
The Tab M10 Plus (Gen 3) has a 400-nit LCD display with 2000 x 1200 resolution. The colors are accurate, to be sure, but not quite as punchy as what you’d get in an OLED display. The viewing angles are great, and the 10.6-inch screen is large enough for most people and the typical day-to-day stuff inside of the home.
The 60Hz refresh rate is obviously not as smooth as the 120Hz displays we get in top phones, but it is barely noticeable for most tasks. The display is great for indoor use, but it is not bright enough for outdoor use or when sitting near a window. At least not without some struggling.
The tablet runs Android 12 with a stock experience and there are few pre-installed apps (Amazon Music, Netflix, Lenovo’s Instant Memo, and Tablet Center), but they are not intrusive. The Tab M10 Plus should be updated to Android 13 later this year, but it will likely not receive any further updates after that.
All things considered, the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus (Gen 3) offers solid performance for its price range, but you may want to consider a more powerful device if you’re looking for video editing or gaming.
