Lenovo Tab M10 review

Lenovo has started to roll out an update to Android 9.0 Pie for the Lenovo Tab P10 and Lenovo Tab M10. Both are mid-range tablets that were released in 2018. The almost identical but with Alexa smart speakers equipped Smart Tab P10 and Smart Tab M10 are getting the same update.

A reader notified us about these updates. He just bought the Tab P10 in Germany and got an update notification a couple of hours after buying it. So, thanks to Stefan for letting us know. This news is confirmed by the Lenovo Upgrade Matrix. According to them, the P10 and M10 started to get Android 9 in June of 2019.

Sadly, it also says that the cheaper Lenovo Tab E10 won’t get any further updates. It’s stuck with Android 8.

The Lenovo Tab P10 and Tab M10 belong to a small selection of tablets running almost pure vanilla Android. Unlike devices from Samsung and Huawei, they don’t install a heavy custom interface. However, that doesn’t keep Lenovo from shipping some additional software features like desktop modes or kids modes.

Lenovo Tab P10 & M10: Still Up-To-Date With Android 9?

Thanks to the OTA update to Android 9.0 Pie for the Lenovo Tab M10 and P10, both tablets continue to be up-to-date. This is very important for Lenovo because the very similar Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 2018 got an update to Android 9 already. You might also want to know that the Huawei MediaPad T5 10 is still running Android 8. That one is a direct competitor to the Lenovo Tab M10 – that is running Android 9 now.

I think the Lenovo Tab P10 continues to be a good choice if you’re looking for a good mid-range tablet with four speakers, a fingerprint scanner, and Android 9. If you don’t care about the fingerprint sensor or the four speakers, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 is a more powerful and cheaper alternative.

The Lenovo Tab P10 has a lot of good premium features at an affordable price. In fact, the speakers, the fingerprint scanner, and the design quite high-end. Other aspects like the display and performance are good too. Sadly, you cannot watch Netflix in HD though. Otherwise it's a good value.
Positive
  • Premium design
  • Good display
  • Solid performance
  • Battery life is fine
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • Four speakers
  • Almost vanilla Android
Negative
  • No Netflix HD support
  • Updates unlikely

    we bought a P10 4/64GB for testing and after some days there was the update. Then we bought a larger number of P10 with 3/32GB and there is no update 🙁
