For those buying this tablet. There are many versions and if you like the one with LTE and data/gsm calls and text, go for the s8-50LC.
Based on 4 months of exp using this tablet:
-loud and clear front facing stereo speakers
-bright clear screen for watching movies/series
-very lightweight and handy for an 8-inch
-Battery life lasts only for 5-6 hours on continuous use and less than 2 days on standby
-Auto brightness function seems buggy after the lollipop update
-Touch lag of about a sec after lollipop update
Haven't tried resetting it yet as some people here claim to fix those after reset.
Conclusion: Still a good buy for it's price if you're looking for a media tablet

JoeM, 29 Mar 2016Android 6.0 Marshmallow coming to this tablet??? I highly doubt it but it could come but don't expect it to come anytime soon, Lollipop update came about year later when it was released by Google.
rooted and upgraded to Lollipop 5.0.1. runs smoothly. averaging free 1.2gb of ram usually.

Since the Tab S8-50 is already running Android 5.0, which is running off a fairly decent 64bit Intel based CPU and associated hardware... I ask one question: when will the Lenovo Tab S8-50 receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update over the air??? I urge Lenovo to put aside their financial agendas and assign their technical staff to push Marshmallow on this device. The hardware is more than sufficient to run Marshmallow it smoothly and Lenovo has a corporate responsibility to its customers that if the their hardware allows it, customers should receive the latest version of Android as feasibly possible...
