What impresses us most about this tablet is the combination of 10.1" 1080p full HD display, a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, and dual-band enhanced WiFi to quickly stream movies, watch videos, or play games. Of course we also like that users can access TV episodes, games, apps, eBooks, and songs, including streaming or downloading videos from Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, STARZ, Disney+, and Showtime. And because the tablet is Alexa-enabled, it's voice-controlled so we can access movies or music—even when our hands are full.

The tablet features a 2 MP front-facing camera and a 2 MP rear-facing camera with 720p HD video recording. It also includes a micro-SD card slot so users can gain up to 512 GB of additional storage. The tablet fully charges in approximately four hours.

What catches your eye first is this slim and lightweight tablet's picture. It's incredibly clear and appears true-to-life thanks to the Super AMOLED display featuring 2560x1600 pixels. It's even optimized to deliver clear images when used outside or in direct sunlight. What's more, the tablet, which features an impressive 128 GB data storage, uses an immersive 16:10 ratio widescreen to make the most of the available display area.

We also like that the tablet can be used to make and receive phone calls, and read and reply to texts, even when the phone is out of reach. Additionally, when used with Samsung's SmartThings setup, the tablet is compatible with smart devices. That enables users to control lights, door locks, the thermostat, and other connected devices and appliances in their homes. They can even control their smart TVs from the tablet.

We are most impressed with the tablet's display. The 7-inch tablet features a 1024 x 600 IPS display for bright colors from all viewing angles—whether watching movies or reading. We also like its Eye Health feature, which adjusts and optimizes the tablet's backlight so it's easy on the eyes and comfortable to read at night. At the same time, because the tablet has a slim design and weighs 8.8 ounces, it even fits in a pocket.

The tablet features a 2 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera. It also features 32 GB storage and has a micro-SD slot so users can add an additional 128 GB of memory if needed.

We like that the tablet includes Google Assistant so users can do everything from receiving calls to controlling compatible smart devices.

Key Features

  • 7" display with 1024 x 600 resolution
  • 32 GB storage
  • Up to eight hours battery life

Lenovo Smart Tab P10 10.1" Tablet

Check Latest Price

There's a lot we like about this 10.1” tablet. That includes its 1920 x 1200 full-HD display, fingerprint login for multiple profiles, rear 8 MP and front 5 MP cameras, and that it has 64 GB storage and a micro-SD card slot so users can gain up to 256 GB of additional storage.

Where this tablet really shines is when it's used with its Alexa-enabled charging dock, which features four full-range Dolby Atmos speakers. This provides users with the full Alexa experience of asking her to complete tasks ranging from streaming music and playing videos to adjusting the lights or controlling the thermostat. Its three far-field microphones pick up the user's voice even from across the room.

What impresses us most about the tablet when its docked, however, is the surround sound experience. Whether its watching a movie or TV show on the tablet, the Dolby Atmos speakers deliver high-quality audio.

Key Features

  • 10.1” display with 1920 x 1200 resolution
  • 64 GB storage
  • Up to five hours battery life
  • Dimension size 11.2 x 2 x 9.2 inches

Here at the CinemaBlend team, we realize that Android tablets vary significantly. The differences in features may be confusing—especially for first time buyers. That’s why we’re about to break down a few features you should consider before buying an Android tablet.

Resolution

The display resolution or display modes of a tablet is the number of distinct pixels that can be displayed on the screen. It is usually quoted with the units in pixels. More pixels per inch increases resolution, which makes the display look better.

Processor

Think of the processor as the brain of the tablet. Its speed will determine whether the tablet seems fast or slow. An octa-core processor, which means the processor has eight cores, for example, will seem noticeably faster than a quad-core processor.

RAM

While Random Access Memory (RAM) is storage, it shouldn't be confused with data storage. RAM should more accurately be thought of as a place to hold data. The importance is seen when thinking about how many users will open and use different applications simultaneously. The higher the RAM, the more apps can be run at the same time without the tablet seeming "slow."

MP Cameras

When looking at tablets, you'll see references to MP cameras. MP stands for mega pixel, which is equal to one million pixels. Digital images are made up of thousands of these pixels, so the more pixels, the higher the image resolution.
