gbk, 02 Feb 2015Worst battery performance. Battery drains in 3 to 4 hours in normal usage on low brightness. S... moreI am able to watch YouTube, netflixs, and browse the internet for a combine screen on time of nearly 5 hrs over the course of 2 days. On the WiFi only model.
R.Shack, 21 Feb 2015I had, has you see, HAD this tablet. I picked this up at a best buy. Had to return it the next... moreOh wow, did you really return this because you didnt like the home launcher? It takes 1 minute to get a different one like Apex or Nova.
This is a fantastic tablet at the current prices....just a steal really. Your loss...
I had, has you see, HAD this tablet. I picked this up at a best buy. Had to return it the next day because a dead pixal in the middle of the screen. I got a new one. Kept it for a couple of days. Returned it and got my money back. The main question is, why does this tablet have, what looks like a water down version of 4.4? Didn't even have a app drawer. With the specs that it has. Why? Hell my old nexus 7 1st gen has 5.0 and my nexus 1st gen ran great. Good thing I gave my nexus 7 to my gf. So I am using it until I get a nvidia shield or the nexus 7 2nd gen.

here again few more models are ready to launch and of them Vibe X3 looks sexy so they definitely do usual mistake of their own trend like weak battery or over price or non availability at authorised stores etc. Just like what they done with S8 TAB & S930 which r real products with what really people needed,,,, ALL REMAING products are just waste. But they always launch 1 real @ 10 waste models and they concentrate on only waste models then the real one. So it's better to leave them to their madness by forgetting this brand called LENOVO
Why Lenovo why? You put 5000mah battery in a phone but not in a 8 inch tablet the Tab S8? What were you even thinking? Its a fail on your part to be so irresponsible and dumb. Beware people this is just how Lenovo is, always overlooking crucial aspects..
The price start dropping coz the initial madmax customers strats crying even in Flipkart,,,soon in just 1 month from now it's sales crash like hell and the price drops to 14k and if they don't change the battery to 6k and other improvements,,,, by 2months it's gonna R.I.P
I am not against this model actually I want it but am terrifying about battery when 4g is ON and about its over price and waiting for the price drop COZ,,,
I KNOW THEY ARE RESTRICTING THE PRICE by MAKING IT AVILABLE ONLY AT FLIPKART
and I know this cheap trick won't work more then a few days.
Nikhil, 15 Feb 2015The Tab doesn't have a Micro-HDMI port and as far as I know it doesn't support MHL or Slimpor... moreWhy HDMI? I am using Google Chromecast to connect S8-50 to TV. Even screen mirroring is working perfectly...
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2015Can u connect tab s8 to TV??The Tab doesn't have a Micro-HDMI port and as far as I know it doesn't support MHL or Slimport standard. So those Micro-USB to XYZ adaptors won't work, you are only left with wireless options like Chromecast as I mentioned previously.
SaraMM, 13 Feb 2015Hi,Nikhil
Did you use any other tablet
Or Do you have informtion about samsung tab batter... moreNo, I don't have any experience with recent Samsung Tabs. The reviews mentioned below might be able to help you.
To everyone, here are some in-depth reviews about the Lenovo Tab S8. They are pretty thorough with all points covered.
elizabet, 13 Feb 2015thank u for good comment from u
I cant connect television what can I doIf your TV supports Miracast you can directly cast your Tab's screen from the Settings->Display->Cast screen.
If it doesn't then you need to buy a Chromecast. With Chromecast attached to your TV you can mirror your Tab's screen.
