My plans to lớn hold on to lớn the Amazon Kindle Fire HD for as long as possible didn’t work out as planned as I had khổng lồ gift it to the niece as a birthday gift. Unfortunately I hear it has stopped working và I’m left wondering if it’s one of those gadget malfunctions or she broke it somehow.

Anyway I’ve moved on khổng lồ Lenovo’s Tab3 8 Plus which has way better features than the 8″ Amazon Kindle Fire HD. With a retail price of about $156, it boasts of an 8″ Full HD 1200 x 1920 pixels display with 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage space and a Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 processor.

The tablet isn’t readily available worldwide and there’s a 1 – 2 weeks waiting time before it actually ships from most sellers online.

The package is quite simple: Tablet, wall adapter, usb cable and chinese manual and warranty card.

Basic – Good Battery Life

Though it comes with a non-removable Li-Po 4250 mAh battery, I was really expecting wonders considering it comes with Qualcomm’s famed 625 processor but alas I was disappointed. Movie junkies can expect just a paltry 7 hours of battery life on this device if the device brightness is set lớn 50%.

*
*
*
*

Now if you turn the device brightness all the way down to lớn zero, you could be able to lớn get 11 hours plus of offline videos before the device shuts down on you.

The funny thing here is that the calibration of the backlight isn’t so good và as such even at zero brightness, the screen is considerable clear enough for movies indoors. If you ask me, I would say the backlight is khổng lồ blame for the average battery life on this device.

Also there seems to lớn be battery calibration issues as in between reboots the battery cấp độ fluctuates a lot as though the battery can’t trang điểm its mind with regards khổng lồ how much capacity is left.

There’s no Quick Charge 3.0 on this device and it takes like over 2 hours 30 minutes to complete charging.

Good – Annoying Performance

The tablet performs exceptionally better than the Amazon Kindle Fire 8 HD considering the Qualcomm octa core processor và 3GB of RAM. It gets annoying though because Lenovo has deployed some stupid autostart feature on the device.

All apps on the device are set lớn autostart at boot. You can kiểm tra this by going lớn Settings >> Apps >> Allow tự động Start.

If you leave them all on, depending on how many apps you have installed on the device, you’d eventually get a warning that too many apps are using system resources và the device begins to lớn lag.

If you turn off auto start, you’re guaranteed constant great performance but Google Play Store downloads & updates suffer. In my experiment when I turned off auto start for even just one app, Google Play Store starts to lớn misbehave. It downloads up to 100% and gets stuck at Installing for a very long time before completing the ứng dụng installation.

Operating system updates work just fine. I got about 3 updates when I boot the device for the first time. At the moment, there’s no word on if Lenovo would release an game android Nougat update for the device or if the tablet would be eternally stuck on android Marshmallow.

Vanilla android UI

The UI is pretty simple & looks lượt thích stock apk with very little bloatware such as Shareit, SyncIt và a few others which can be easily uninstalled. The desktop drawer unfortunately doesn’t arrange apps in alphabetical order.

*
*
*
*

The UI comes with a feature called Adaptive Display which offers 4 display Modes: Media, Standard, Reading và Child.

*
*

The display color changes based on which adaptive display mode you choose.

Also I noticed that the Display Mode affects Dolby Atmos settings too. For example, truyền thông media mode automatically sets Dolby Atmos profile to lớn Movie. If you are on Standard or Reading display mode, Dolby Atmos switches to lớn Music profile và Child Mode sets Dolby to trò chơi profile.

Superb Audio Quality

Thanks lớn Dolby Atmos, the audio performance on this cheap $150 tablet is đứng đầu notch. It’s almost as good as what I experienced on the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3. The better the audio source quality, the better the audio output through this tablet’s dual speakers.

Good Camera

I haven’t really played with the camera well. Indoor selfies suck but indoor photos are quite good for a tablet. See sample below. I might take a few outdoor samples và update this review later on if I’m feeling up to lớn it.

Conclusion

I really wish the battery life was better and Lenovo would fix whatever is the issue with their battery calibration but I have to lớn say for $150, this is one bad ass tablet built on a Qualcomm processor. I highly recommend it if you’re on a budget.
