    Lenovo ThinkPad 8 review

    Lenovo is all set to launch its new Windows operating device in the market. All smartphone and tablet manufacturer are moving out from the Windows OS, whereas Lenovo has come up with new device which runs Windows OS in it. Lenovo has made Windows 8 devices more constantly than any other company with innovative hardware every time. Windows gained some momentum in the market with the release of Windows 8 OS for every device and for every person. Now with an upgraded Windows 8.1 OS Microsoft is assuming to capture the market again.

    Lenovo already has a device called convertible or hybrid device which can turn in to laptop and tablet. This amazing device was loved by the users globally. Now Lenovo ThinkPad 8 is out with latest Windows 8.1 OS and versatile hardware in the device. Let’s explore what Lenovo promises the user to provide with and whether it will stand the competition from the growing Android users.

    Design and Packaging:

    Lenovo’s new flagship will not give you innovative but definitely an inspiring design. Lenovo has made use of magnetized flip cover which turns the device on when it is opened which is inspired by iPad mini’s smart cover which does the same function. Lenovo ThinkPad 8 promises with creative design than rectangular body which is found commonly in all 8-inch screen tablets.

    Lenovo has shaped the corners of the tablet round and smooth which enhances the looks of the tablet. Body is made up of aluminium which gives sturdy and impressive looks with firm grip in the hand. Lenovo ThinkPad 8 is slightly thick and heavy than iPad Mini but that difference in the thickness does not make any sense. Lenovo ThinkPad 8 is just 0.35 inches thick and weighs 0.95 pound which is heavy to handle but after prolonged use weight will not matter to you. Lenovo’s new flagship has 8MP camera on the back and 2MP camera at the front along with sensors.

    You will find power on/off and volume rocker buttons on right side of tablet and this are only buttons present in Lenovo ThinkPad 8. A 3.5mm headphone jack is placed in the middle of lower edge along with charging port or micro USB port. You can also connect micro-HDMI cable to this micro USB port.

    You will not be disappointed with camera features on this device as Lenovo ThinkPad 8 has 8MP camera. With 8MP and flash you can capture brilliant and sharp images;however pictures captured at low-light area are quite noisy. Outdoor shooting with this camera is just amazing and shows vibrant colours with detailed texture. You can also shoot video with 8MP camera of Lenovo ThinkPad 8; videos can be shot at 1080p which is now common in device with 8MP camera.

    Video shot with this device comes sharp and crisp and justifies devices powerful camera. Lenovo ThinkPad 8 has front camera of 2MP which is necessary for Windows tablet for communicating on live messenger or making video calls in other messenger. video chat at 1080p resolution is possible like the one provided by back camera of this device. Making video at 1080p resolution will boost your chatting experience with this device.


    Lenovoís new flagship has good battery backup compared to other Windows running tablet in the market. Lenovo ThinkPad 8 can run tablet for more than 7 hours which is good backup for Windows OS device but far less than the device running on Android or iOS platform. Devices having strong hardware configuration like this one consumes battery very fast. So better battery backup is preferred in such devices. The battery life result may vary for the users who uses device for browsing, playing games or watching movies.


    Lenovo has made all round development to make this Windows operating device a big boom in the market and to do so it has provided device with plenty of resources. Lenovo ThinkPad 8 has good display with vibrant color output and viewing angle. It also has quad-core Intel powered processor for handling all the computing part of the device. Camera in the device is really stunning and helps to capture real good images; front camera with 1080p recording would enhance the video chat and voice chat quality experience.

    Lenovo ThinkPad 8 has good inbuilt storage of 64GB which will be sufficient for storing all the data and stuff on to this device. Battery backup of the device is fine but other device with different platforms performs much better. Limited apps and games present in Windows operating device limits the use of this device for work and watching movies. The device is slightly expensive whereas other platform device will come in cheaper cost. Price of the 64GB Lenovo ThinkPad 8 comes in 399$ and for 128GB it will price much more. Windows is not a preference of the users so letís see how much success the new Lenovo ThinkPad 8 would achieve in the market.
