I can confirm that the tablet that I received 10/15/2017 from Amazon shipped with Nougat 7.1.1 and does include an ambient light sensor to answer some previous questions. Using the tablet I am noticing a lot of lag which is unfortunate. I'm guessing it's mostly due to the 2 GB of ram although my 2013 Nexus 7 only has 2 GB of ram and doesn't seem to have the lag. Perhaps Lenovo did not do a good job with optimizing the OS on their device. I chose this tablet over similar tablets with the 652 SoC due mostly to it being much more power efficient by using the new 625 SoC. At this point I think I will return and try one of the 652 tablets that come with 3 GB of ram and deal with more frequent charging.
Sai, 10 Oct 2017Did this product support OTG.....??????Yep, I copied over a few movies from a USB key last night.
Oscar, 15 Sep 2017No gyroscope in 2017? Is this a joke? What were they thinking?Price tag, what are u thinking?
Is this tablet splash-resistant or has some nano coating to protect against the odd water spills? Are the speakers front-firing? And is there a Nougat 7.1.1 update currently available? Battery life any good?
mk, 23 Aug 2017does anyone know that it has calling facility or not?Yes, you can use it as a phone.
Does this one have ambient light sensor? The standard (non-Plus) version does not. Very annoying!
Don't bother ordering this tablet in the US or Canada, they've downgraded the specs to 16GB/2GB and no plans to release the 64GB/4GB model. There glass back is no more; they switched it out to a soft touch backing(same as the standard models). If you still want it, you're better off importing it or buying something else entirely.
AnonD-688748, 01 Aug 2017Lenovo Tab4 8plus has no compass sensor. Many navigation apps have not function well.That's true. I bought that tablet at Monday and I've just verified that the compass sensor is missing.
I am just wondering when the tab will be available in the Nigerian market. Does anyone know please? Thanks.
