Now $158 at OW https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/lenovo-tab-m8-hd-tablet-2nd-gen-iron-grey-len0036au How low will it go?...
21/08/2020 - 19:49
I have an A20, and want to know if M8 will be slower/how much. (for CPU) A20 is (s)low-end... but tabs are usually slower than same-priced...
20/08/2020 - 22:10
Yeah, but I can't find benchmarks for the M8... I want to compare it with Samsung A20, too.
20/08/2020 - 19:43
Is there a time limit? BTW have you seen benchmarks, to compare with teclast p80x and samsung tab a 8? It seems better on every count, but...
20/08/2020 - 19:12
Since GG has M10 on sale, checked it and they also have M8, at $169 - seems a further 10% discount (so $152.10 I guess). Also free delivery...

Thanks for putting me on to these! They have an M7 too: metal build, IPS screen, but ancient SoC (A7/mali 4**) BTW To last for years,...
11/08/2020 - 14:57
A shame! I guess specs aren't the full story. BTW disabling apps that run in the background helped on my low-end phones. The A20 is laggy...

Had a look at M8: Helio A22 (exact variant is unclear, nor which GPU). GE8320 (since Apple spurned Imagination, they had to find new...

Thanks, Lenovo tabs used to be really good - like your one - but then got worse each year!! That's why I'm looking at Teclast etc. But I...
10/08/2020 - 04:33
Large, crisp display for coding and pdfs. Small, light and low-power for camping (solar panel). 7-8" >= 720p >= A53 @ 1.3GHz >= 20 GFLOPS,...
10/08/2020 - 02:19
Teclast also make an 8" with the same SoC https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/556631 Oz stock gone, still avail from China, but I think the...
09/08/2020 - 11:39
Yes. Here the phones were similar size (4.3" vs 5"), so the 5" had more pixels per inch (so they're smaller): 720/5 > 480/4.3 BTW: HorseUK...
09/08/2020 - 03:00
Thanks! Sounds legit - didn't think of customer reviews. Thanks for pasting too, as banggood isn't loading for me. Not sure I agree with...
09/08/2020 - 01:51
All the reviews I found have a "paid advertisement" feel, and didn't mention this sharpness... Be good to see the ones you saw, do you have...
08/08/2020 - 04:40
Googling teclast P80X reviews gives me conflicting specs... I wonder if you could confirm which it is, please? 5 hr or 10 hr battery life?...
08/08/2020 - 04:34
It's common. All batteries swelled on my last 3 (cheap) phones after 2-3 years. "Replaceable" only matters if you can get one - an...
07/08/2020 - 23:40
Great specs! 273 GFLOPS, 4x A72 2Ghz Any downsides to the computing hardware?
29/07/2020 - 19:28
Forget $100's off a $1000 phone, THIS is value-for-money! 12nm, 2GHz A53, 40GF, 2GB, 5.7" 720p IPS for $69 I'd been waiting for something...
28/07/2020 - 04:26
This one has an "always on" display. Sounds like a drain, but IDK. Also, the CPU is clocked pretty high, 2GHz....
26/07/2020 - 21:33
So Melbourne should be pretty OK?
10/05/2020 - 06:05
Unfortunately their 500g range is limited.
06/05/2020 - 23:52
People reported weeks ago that shipping phones/tablets from China were badly affected by COVID19. I thought cargo was unimpeded, and now...
06/05/2020 - 20:02
Thanks!
06/05/2020 - 19:44
Huge gorgeous screen, but finding it strangely slower than specs suggest (2x A73 @ 1.6 GHz).
06/05/2020 - 18:10
Woolworth's website locks up and crashes my old phone - and both Coles and Woolies require you scroll through their catalog anyway. Price...
06/05/2020 - 17:55
A20, AMOLED, <$200. Tabs overpriced/underspeced.
02/05/2020 - 18:36
> thin bezel ... detects a tiny fold of skin from the palm holding it Me too. Haven't found a way to hold it to avoid this. Maybe a case...

There's a few 10" tablets underneath it, on a similar 20-25% sale.
