Indira, 18 Oct 2018I got carried away by seeing the specs that this is a calling tab. I was under the impression ... moreYou always should go check the model number on the manufacturer website, after gsmarena checking. that way you are confirmed specs.
I got carried away by seeing the specs that this is a calling tab. I was under the impression that this will support VoLTE. But it will not. There is no dial pad to make it a calling tab. Further the device is going out of network every few minutes needing us to reset network, most disgusting. We fail to understand why Lenovo made this so when world over is migrating to VoLTE. In India all major ISPs are already on VoLTE releasing this is meaningless and fraud. More do this tab is not optimized at all and we can not be sure of any future company support. Overall I don't advise anyone to buy this tab.
I have the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus (TB-8704X) and it does indeed support Qualcomm Quick Charge fast charging. With a regular charger I measured it at 10 watts (5Vx2A). With a QC2.0 charger I was able to get 15 watts (9Vx1.67A).
I'll answer a few other questions from previous posts:
My tablet does have working GPS.
I can confirm that the US version does only have 16gb storage and 2 gb RAM. I returned that model because it suffered from lag. The 4 GB ram model does not have the lag.
I am able to access the play store and install google apps with this model in the US. The default language was something other than English. I was able to change it during initial setup.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2018Can someone confirm is the tab4 8 Plus actually have quickcharging? Some sites says it does, s... moreIt at least doesn't charge any faster than most phones and tabs I've handled.
After much research and particularly reading the spec in Gsmarena, this device seemed a very good buy. So I bought the Lenovo Tab4 8 Plus 4G lte variant,16gb with 3gb of ram.
To my HUGE disappointment the 3gb version DOES NOT have any GPS / COMPASS sensors in it !! So the device cannot be used a compass or sat nav in the car or any other directional purposes.Even though the stock software has options for the user to choose GPS assist, it is in FACT a con! This is the first and last Lenovo device I will waste my money on. Why the hell do manufacturers and websites purposely mislead the customer?
I see there are 2 variants of this device i.e 4gb ram / 64gb storage, maybe this model does have compass magnetic sensors inbuilt?
Tread carefully when buying this device.
Can someone confirm is the tab4 8 Plus actually have quickcharging? Some sites says it does, some says it doesn't. I haven't found a credible source.
The 8 inch sized screen is so good, that is why I want to buy the newest version. Where can I buy the version TB-8704X/F for EU, actually The Netherlands, witrh 3GB RAM and 64GB Rom, black version?
My present one, 2GB/32GB which was bought in 2015, is already suffering from lagging, interrupted connection to Internet etc.
Need your opinion guys.
Between this tablet and the iPad mini 4 which do you guys think has a better sounding & clearer / louder audio? (I heard/read that the Tab 4's speakers somewhat sound mono and as if someone has a clogged nose. True?)
And in terms of split screen multitasking which one you think supports more apps in split screen mode and one that supports drag n drop e.g dragging a photo on the Photos app to Gmail, etc.?
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2018Only 16gb storage and 2 gb RAM models in US. No built in compass. Does upgrade to Nougat 7.1... moreI don't know what is the version of your tablet, but the info here is correct. Main Tab4 8Plus is 16gb 3gb Ram. So maybe your tablet is not Plus version.
Only 16gb storage and 2 gb RAM models in US. No built in compass. Does upgrade to Nougat 7.1. GSM Arena needs to update specs. If this model had 3 GB ram I would be very happy. The 2GB ram is ok for leisure basic stuff. I've noticed lag when loading Doppler radar, using Google Earth, and when having multiple apps open. The device actually freezes up with extended Google Earth usage. All the imagary is loaded into ram and fills up pretty quickly then freezes up the device. I was using a friend's Samsung Tab A 10" also with 16 GB memory, 2 GB RAM, and Android 7.1 and I couldn't get it to freeze up. I had a RAM monitor app on and the Samsung would get down to around 260 mb RAM but keep going. I guess the Samsung was managing the RAM better. I had Lenovo Tab4 8 non plus before this and was happier with it considering it was $100 cheaper. It wouldn't show much lag in Google Earth. Weird. Its screen resolution despite having lesser specs was still quite good. Maybe the Plus's higher resolution screen also means more RAM gets used for the higher definition. My only gripe with this device is this 2gb RAM. Otherwise great device. Maybe if the device upgrades to Oreo, things will be better. Oreo is supposed to have better memory management. Great sounding speakers (for a tablet) and they face towards you which is wonderful.
Great tablet. bought as a replacement for my wife´s sony z3 compact tablet.
It´s really good for the price.
Bought this tablet and returned it as it was super buggy after all updates were installed.Speakers are amazing but software was unreliable,froze up from time to time.Lockscreen wallpaper would change on you no matter what you did.Not a good experience whatsoever.Screen was not as bright as I thought it would be.
LenovoIsAwesome, 20 Jan 2018i bought this tablet for around USD$143.mind you this is the Plus model which actually retails... moreLfor $143 form Chinese website you bought the Lenovo tab 3 8 plus not tab 4 8 plus...
Like Lenovo's Motorola phones does this tablet come with some form of IP rating (basic IP52/53 rating) or some form of "advance nano coating" that makes it safe with spills or odd rain drop/glass of water?
LenovoIsAwesome., 22 Jan 2018yup,brand new.bought it from a site called Qoo10...they had a promotion for this tablet which ... morePlease tell what are you doing to solve the problem with a Chinese version because I bought this tablet (Lenovo tab 4 8 plus - Model:TB-8704N) and I wish I can install gapps (google apps) on it but I can't as you know that before, So, please tell me what are you doing to solve that issue, kindly be informed that I heared that I can install the Global version (TB-8704x) on it, please help me !!
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2018Where did u find it for that cheap?Brand new?yup,brand new.bought it from a site called Qoo10...they had a promotion for this tablet which is a China variant and even supports LTE and WiFi.there are a few models of this tablet and the one i have is model TB-8704N which is the China variant.the Euro variants should be TB-8704X/F.after inquiries with the seller i found out that the supplier they got the tablet from actually flashed an unofficial rom on the tablet in order to get the Google Playstore in the tablet since the original China rom doesn't have Google Services installed.it does come with the usual Android Nougat but i'm not sure if it can get future official firmware updates since its running on a unofficial rom.
