    Do not use a magnetic case. Just don’t.

    Overall this is a good deal for the price.The tablet comes with a cheap, soft case. I purchased a sturdier one with the magnetic closure and it caused all sorts of problems. Use the case that comes with it, and treat it gently.Be aware that Lenovo customer support is all virtual, and I found it difficult to navigate. You need a Lenovo account to get to a chat session. Once I got in, though, the support person tried very hard to solve the issues that turned out to be entirely due to the magnetic case.

    Great Value And Community Gift for Family

    I haven’t bought a tablet in at least a decade and am shocked at how cheap they are now. The price for this tablet is a steal! I bought it for my Mom, as she shops on her phone a lot and having a large tablet is so much easier to look at than a tiny phone screen. She loves the battery life compared to her old Galaxy phone. My Dad sometimes uses it to watch football in bed. And, as you can see, my Niece has now discovered her first tablet, and loves watching “The Ginch” on it haha.

    I like mine a lot, but…

    Great picture in video mode and decent speakers, too. But there’s no volume control on the media player, so you’re kinda stuck. the only way to adjust the sound appears to be to go all the way into Settings and change the volume setting for the entitre device instead of the media being played – Lenovo, please note.Meanwhile I’m having a ball with Kindle and Plex on my tablet, and the battery life is ever so much better than my kindle. Also the Micro USB-C charging port/plug is much more robust and secure.

    Elegant inexpensive tablet for everyday use!

    So I got this tablet a little while ago and here are my first impressions.I found the Lenovo M9 at 9” to be comparable with the few small android budget tablets that I’ve worked with over the last few years. With its 5:3 aspect ratio, this M9 tablet sits very nicely on my palm & its very comfortable to work with.The frame – is made of metal & edges are hardly noticeable. Overall it has a very modern look and feel.Display – with its 1340×800 resolution and 368 lux, the M9 has a comparatively bright display but it’s still kind of dark when taken outside. Indoor, this tablet has a very good contrast ratio with strong bright colors.Performance – With its MediaTek Helios G80 I had no issues opening several apps & generally transition from one page to next was very smooth. Surfing the web was also generally good but this 4 year old SoC (system on a chip) has its limitation especially when playing games (some games couldn’t be played at all). The same goes for working with memory intensive apps like video or sound editing.Speakers – Sound quality was surprisingly good for such an inexpensive tablet. The stereo speaker were decent but still there were hardly any bass but then again most people probably use its 3.5 mm (or Bluetooth) to play music with a nicer (more capable) earphone or headphone.The Camera – M9 comes with 2 MP front facing camera and an 8MP rear camera. Frankly the cameras are good for only snap shots & video conferencing as photos taken by this tablet look mostly washed out and low light photos looked grainy. The same thing is true when taking videos which is generally adequate in good lighting condition but it can’t cope with low light conditions.Battery – This tablet comes with a 5100 mAh battery which is good enough for watching movies at mid-brightness for about 5 hours (& while connected to WIFI). However watching movies at maximum brightness will significantly cut it to about 3.5 hours. That said, it can be fully charged with a 10 watt charger in about 3 hours.Lenovo Tab M9 is a good affordable tablet that is modern looking (I really like the metal body) and is a good compromise between bigger tablets & tiny ones that often don’t come with a lot of features. I only wished that it also had a LTE build-in so that my kids could watch their shows in the car so to keep them occupied.

    Es buena, pero no excelente, falta espacio y se siente lento a veces

    The media could not be loaded.

    Lo primero, no llega con la funda gris que vemos en la primera foto, es una funda acrilica transparente regular, simple y funcional, pero sin estilo no esperen algo tipo book, es solo un soporte y eso. La tablet tiene una muy buena pantalla (ver video), tiene poco espacio en GB necesitaran comprarse una memoria extra, muy bueno para ver HBO Max, Crunchyroll, Netflix y Youtube mientras se hace otra cosa como cocinar y para navegar por internet en cualquier momento, pero poco más a veces se siente que tiene tirones y al procesador le cuesta llegar, los botones se sienten a veces fuera de lugar, el audio es excelente de lo mejor que tiene, su rango de wifi es muy bueno. El acabado en metal es muy bueno, excelente al tacto. No tiene recarga acelerada, a veces el tiempo de recarga puede tomar más de 1 hora. No dura 15 horas! a lo mucho durará 8-10 horas en video, pero cuando esta encendido pero sin uso puede durar varios días así. Resumen: estoy contento, me sirve para lo básico, algo de lectura, mucho de video para distraerme mientras cocino o simplemente para escuchar música.

    Memory issues

    I have not had an android tablet in quite yet some time. I tried this one out and it was everything I was hoping for… everything but one major flaw.On the good side it was fast, smooth, great picture quality. It connected fine to all my other devices and it is, in my opinion, the perfect size for a tablet.Unfortunately I did not know that android tablets have started to go the apple route and do not allow you to increase your device storage space. You can mount an SD for extra storage, but not to increase the devices internal storage. This means that you cannot put apps on the SD and with the newer android OS being close to 15gig on it’s own and the files it creates upon starting your storage space is already half gone. That is not sustainable and I’ll be sending it back. It’s very frustrating because aside from that it’s a perfect little tablet for me. Sad day…

    Freezes up!

    Screen quality is great. Camera is okay. What I dislike the most was the fact that the tablet froze up so many times. This can be annoying when you’re completing a form online or playing a game and you basically have to come out of what you’re doing and start over. Being that I have a all-in-one Lenovo PC I expected better performance from this tablet. Unfortunately I returned.

    It might have been a nice tablet, but needs some improvement.

    This tablet came with Android 12, which, when it updated to Android 13, the pull down menu which usually appears on the top of the page on Android devices disappeared. After checking everything, it appeared that the update to Android 13 removed it. (The menu was there when it was running Android 12.) I have a Samsung phone with Android 13 which still shows the pull down menu, so it appears to be this tablet and not Android 13. Also, the tablet comes with 16 GB of system files, so if you bought the 32 GB tablet it might not leave you with enough memory for your needs. Other devices that I own which have 32 GB of memory, use noticeably less space for system files. Although you can add a memory card, if you need the space for apps, this tablet might not work for you. I returned it.

    Great little tablet

    Since I have a Lenovo laptop, I figure I would give this tablet a try. So far so good. It’s not too heavy to hold and the screen is nice. I like that it is a 9in screen. It isn’t super fast but it isn’t slow either. It came with 32gb of storage, I would have like more. I would recommend this tablet for anyone on a budget.

    Excellent all-rounder for general tablet use

    I’ve owned a BUNCH of lenovo tablets; I just got this one because my 10″ tablet isn’t comfortable for reading while holding it with one hand. This 9″ is just right in terms of size, for me. The screen isn’t quite as crisp as I’d like for reading, but it’s still better than many other tablets I’ve had. That is my first complaint, the second is that I can’t format a new 128G micro SD as internal storage, only as “portable storage.” (Lenovo’s help and specifications are insanely nonspecific at times.)Those are my only complaints and overall this is the best tablet I’ve had in a long time. The case is great, mine came with a little folding cover (can’t promise they all do), which is VERY useful and effective though it’s just plain plastic. My apps run very well, not too much proprietary idiotware added to the OS as far as I can tell, and all the controls and functions are fine.Overall this tablet gets a very solid “A” and just misses an “A-plus.” And it was a darned good price when I got mine. I’m very pleased with this tablet!

    Borderline unusable, 3gb memory makes this a terrible performer

    I’m replacing another (older) Lenovo tablet with this one after breaking the screen on the other. I was very happy with that tablet, so I thought this would be a safe choice. Definitely a mistake.The tablet has an infuriating problem with breaking browser windows by reloading them if I switch away to another app and come back. This causes lots of problems if you have entered information previously or are using a progressive web app. There’s not enough memory on the device to handle keeping inactive apps in memory. Normally that’s an uncommon thing, but with this tablet it happens every time I’m browsing. Makes doing any kind of forms submission just about impossible unless you never leave the window. That dropped my rating from 4 stars to 2. (The other lost star was battery life}.The form factor is nice, the 9 inch screen is definitely a good size for reading books. The battery life isn’t great, I end up charging it daily to be sure I have enough power for the next day. And there is an annoying Lenovo “Duraspeed app restrict” application which appears to be a watchdog to slow or lock background apps down if they use too much processor. Again, this feels like a kludge because the tablet is underpowered.Bottom line: at this price you can do better. It’s not worth the headache.

    Dropped from Five Stars to Two With Android 13 Upgrade

    There is a lot to like about this tablet. It’s nearly the perfect size to use as a reader and for general entertainment. It feels solid and is suitably fast for general infotainment functions. Some reviewers have even reported being able to use it for light gaming. I would not expect it to perform as well for multitasking/productivity type functionality. This was going to be my go-to recommendation for anyone looking for an inexpensive but functional tablet for the next year or two. I was also ready to get one for a family member who is not especially tech savvy when, out of the blue, the tablet offered an Android 13 upgrade. Wow! So soon after procuring this tablet. Nice! Well, as it turns out, Lenovo’s implementation of Android 13 on this device includes a completely pointless taskbar. This taskbar is great at getting in the way and provides little additional value when you are using this tablet as… a tablet. It might have some use if you were using this tablet for a productivity device – but this is not a tablet that is especially fit for productivity apps. This taskbar severely impedes using navigation buttons and cannot be hidden when using them. So, if you want the taskbar out of the way, you must use the default launcher and set navigation for gestures. Only once this is done, may you use a third party launcher. You can then swipe down to make the taskbar disappear. It will reappear after restarting the tablet or after unlocking. Then this workaround must be done again. Other manufacturers allow users to disable the taskbar in the interface. Lenovo’s Android 13 implementation for this tablet does not allow this. I am hoping this option becomes available in a future update. But, until then, I can’t recommend this tablet for anyone who might easily be confused by this new “feature” – and it’s a regular annoyance for me, too. It’s too bad. Because otherwise, this is a very nice tablet for the price point. I’ll circle back and note if this issue gets resolved with a future update.

    Fast, clear, large fonts, one of the best tablets

    Watching YouTube, emails, news, movies this tablet is more than enough, speakers are clear and lound. The most important thing is the fonts sizes are large enough to read no need to figure out how to make texts larger for reading every time you want to read something, so annoying. Best affordable, simple tablet

    Fantastic for the price point

    I bought this as an e-reader and for the occasional streaming/light gaming. I use the app ReadEra (not a fan of Kindle) and I couldn’t be happier. With the brightness turned to minimal (you don’t need much for reading), I get 20+ hours easily. Streaming gets me between 3-6 depending on brightness. The included case is great quality for protection against scratches in your bag, ease of holding, and auto sleep when closed – but in no way is this going to save your tablet from a fall off the table.*This tablet is going to need a couple minutes booting to full speed when powering up. This isn’t the case when waking form sleep mode – it’s ready to go automatically. But expect some patience when cycling the power.*This tablet should be good for live android updates until at least next year, but runs great out of the box for the basics.*I’ve also dabbled with some low end retri emulation (GBA, SNES, and even PS1) – all working great especially when connected to power. The bluetooth pairs with a controller no problem.I’d buy this tablet again, especially if its on sale.

    Decent, Affordably Priced, Budget Tablet

    I bought this to replace an aging Lenovo tablet I’d purchased 4 years ago during the pandemic. It was easy to set up, and I synced it to another android device. I’ll primarily use this for watching Disney Plus or Netflix, reading, or playing an occasional game while I’m on the road and traveling for work. Doesn’t have a ton of storage space, but it suits my needs. Battery charges quickly and has decent battery life. You can certainly buy a much higher quality tablet or an iPad, but then again, you’re spending a lot more for those. Pictured with the Seymac stock Lenovo M9 tablet cover – an imitation Otterbox, of sorts.

    A bargain of a compromise

    I’ve used some sketchy tablets in my day. I did feel I could be gaining more experience with that when I picked this up on sale a few months ago. I’ve been quite pleasantly surprised.There are quite a few negative reviews out there. The storage space is tighter than I like, but honestly adding more applications and junk defeats its purpose. Other than that, I think reviewers are expecting $1,000 tablet performance and graphics. That’s not what the tab m9 is. If they want that, they’ll have to pay. Similarly, the camera is mediocre by today’s standards, but I have a Pixel that has a fantastic camera. I don’t need another. That’s all I can think to say to knock it.I’ve watched movies, read stories, played logic games (nothing graphicly intense) although I don’t really play computer games. Browsing the web and social media are pleasant experiences.I’m taking it travelling. I’ll watch a movie or two on my flight. Resolution is great for the screen dimensions. I can VPN into work, use ssh, and get a shell on machines I manage if something comes up. It does everything I need and everything runs smoothly. I don’t try to crush it, I just use it.Temper your expectations and enjoy this little tablet. It is a compromise tablet for the price point. I keep it updated, running android 13. It’s a pretty good deal.

    Great for price.

    This review is for the Lenovo Tab M9. I noticed the reviews seem to combine both the M8 and M9. As far as the M9, I purchased the tablet during prime day for $109. For the price, you will not get a better tablet. Sure, Amazon fire tablets sometimes are cheaper, but do not offer full access to the google play store and performance. The M9 offers good performance for the price. Web browsing, and light multitasking with split screen is possible. Also, some light gaming is possible with the right settings. Of course, when compared to an iPad mini 6 (which I own) or a more expensive android tablet, the M9 will be beaten. However, I recommend the M9 if you need an entry level tablet with full access to the google play store. The screen is plenty bright and it has good built quality.As far as the included folio case, the magnets are not very strong, so it does not stay closed. Also the screen protector is plastic and flimsy. I ended up purchasing a glass tempered screen protector and am using the folio case until more are released with better form factors. Skip the M8, which is abysmally slow now and the screen is dim (I owned the third generation M8). Just be aware that the internal storage of the M9 is limited, so if you have a lot of apps, you may use up a lot of storage quick. I use it mainly to stream YouTube, Netflix, etc and web browsing. I’ve also used it to video conference through zoom.

    Pretty good for a budget tablet

    I picked this up this past week during the Black Friday sale, so I haven’t had much time to play around with it yet. It’s a cheap tablet, so my expectations weren’t high. It can be slow in some cases, sometimes taking a little bit to load up some of the larger (read: Google) apps, but it’s nothing beyond what I expected. It can play what few mobile games I play just fine, and play local videos and stream just fine too. My OnePlus Nord N200 phone has similar specs, just with a smaller screen, and the speeds are comparable. Entirely usable outside of some unique cases.It probably won’t be great as a drawing tablet, but I’ll be giving it a try anyway once I manage to pick up a decent passive stylus. I’m only using it to learn basics, so I’m able to keep my expectations reasonable. (For the record, this tablet doesn’t support any active stylus types other than regular old Bluetooth. I figure I’d wait on purchasing an active stylus until I can also purchase a good tablet/2-in-1 to use with it.)I have a lot of issues with some changes that were made to Android 12L/13, but that’s not really an issue with Lenovo, and from my understanding, they actually waited until the Android 13 update to implement the Android 12L taskbar, so good on them for holding out until they were sure it wasn’t going away. I’m not counting that against Lenovo here.But that brings up the other reason I got it. I’m experienced with installing custom ROMs, and name brands like this one tend to have good support for them. The Developer Options section in the Settings has the toggle to unlock the bootloader, so it should be relatively simple for custom ROMs to be made for it. It may only have 3GB of RAM, but so does my OnePlus Nord N200, and that has a ton of ROMs for it.Obviously, doing such a thing isn’t for the inexperienced. But I’m not, and so while I can only afford a budget tablet, getting this over, say, a generic Blackview tablet that might have more RAM for the same price, is still the better option in the end due to the longer OS support length.

    Good but not good enough

    The media could not be loaded.

    So this is a nice little tablet, I will say the folio case it comes with is okay but I would not trust it to actually protect this thing, the screen protector it came with is straight garbage and came with no tools to ensure a good application I honestly would rather it not have come with a screen protector at all.As for performance, I got this mostly as a streaming tablet but also for a little emulation and I am happy to report if you want this for emulation it is a great value get it. It can play light ps2 and gamecube games easily like Luigi’s Mansion, Mario Kart, and Monster Hunter All play fine, and every system before gamecube like dreamcast, psp, n64 will all work perfectly.For video streaming I was actually dissapointef which is why I will probably end up returning this. I always watch YouTube videos at 2x and this thing it depends on the video but I would say about 50% of videos if you turn on 2x speed it runs at literally like 15fps and looks horrible, yourube was my primary reason for buying this so it just does not make sense to keep it. Netflix, hulu, disney, all seem to work fine and it does not make much sense why youtube has this issue, but it does. Also whenever an ad plays on YouTube it exits full-screen for some reason which is super annoying. I added a video showing 2x video on YouTube. In this instance it looked just fine until an ad played, then after the ad the franerate dropped to this like 10 or 15fps and looks terrible

    Replacement tablet works better

    So after submitting 2 support tickets and one “help me” message from their app on the tablet, I finally got a response to the support ticket that they were sending a replacement “part”. This “part” arrived and it was a new tablet. I wasn’t sure a new tablet would fix this since it looked like a software problem, so I was skeptical. I moved everything to the new tablet and it IS actually working much better. I can run all of my apps, except the one solitaire app still gets killed by the tablet. But I found the same game by another developer and it works fine. So I can live with one app not working vs maybe 4 that weren’t on my old tablet. Maybe there was indeed some glitch in the hardware somewhere.So I’m raising my rating for their willingness to send a new tablet, which fixed things to the point I can live with.****Original Review****Bought this tablet in June so I’ve had it 5 months. This tablet initially seemed great, especially for the money and the fact that finding a decent tablet in this size range is almost impossible. It was working great until it didn’t. So now I have to give the tablet only 1 star. This is mainly for the software that Lenovo has installed and which you CANNOT see, uninstall or control. It happened after their latest update.The system has a built-in memory management app that you cannot see and cannot control. After the last update, this app has gone on steroids and is very aggressive. It will shut down apps while you are using them or sometimes even before they fully open. Yes, that’s right. You click on the app, you see it starting, then boom, it is is gone. I’m not talking graphic-heavy gaming apps. I’m talking solitaire card games and match-3 games. If you google this, you will find many angry posts about this and Lenovo’s responses have been the typical, “well, it is a system app so you can’t do anything about it…too bad so sad.”So some apps work and some don’t. I’ve contacted Lenovo via their app on the tablet and twice via their warrant support website since my tablet is still under warranty. ZERO RESPONSES. Obviously, Lenovo has no intention of addressing this issue or even any warranty issues. So buy at your own risk cuz once you buy it, you are on your own.

    Basic, Cheap Tablet w/ Garbage Screen Protector

    I’ve had many Lenovo tablets. They’re cheap and I’ve typically gotten them to last about three years. They’re not for gaming are extensive streaming, but they’re better than Amazon’s stuff because at least they run Android properly.For my purposes, it’s for reading the news, a bit of simple games from the Play store, managing my bills, and listening to music. Nothing more. Nothing less.So far this meets expectations and the included folio case was a nice plus. But the screen protector included? Total crap. I tried getting bubbles out for an hour and the thing was still disgusting looking. For my use, this spends 95% of its life on my nightstand so I doubt I’ll care. But for those who genuinely need a screen protector, you’ll have to find something else as what’s in the box is worthless.

    Good for the price

    Screen is good and performance surprised me given its cost compared to higher end tablets. It would be great for kids. We are using it as a higher end kindle reader. Screen is little bit dimmer than kindle but can still read outside especially with white text on black screen.

    Does what’s needed!

    The media could not be loaded.

    Getting ready to push out my content next year and get back in the game and really needed a tablet for digital planning and studying. This is perfect! Loads quickly and with the addition of my 128gb memory card I have plenty of room for everything. Absolutely love it

    Nook HD+: May it rest in peace!

    Purchased this at an excellent price (109.99) for the specific purpose of having a full color eReader. It is the first tablet that I have encountered that replicates the screen size of my Nook HD+ which had an 8.9 inch screen that was truly one of the best I have encountered. This Lenovo Tab M9 has finally offered me at bare minimum an equivalent of the HD+ with a much more advanced hardware and software system and noticeably lighter! No issue adding my e-book reader app of choice (eReader Prestigio) and also the Kindle app. Could not be more pleased with its performance, ease of use, and dependability. Would like to have seen longer battery life but with Wi-Fi off and in Airplane mode, it is sufficient. As for any/all of its other tablet uses, I cannot comment. PS: Odd thing is that for reasons known only to Lenovo, if you add an SD card for additional storage, it cannot be set up so as to be included with the internal memory.

    Basic browsing computer for reading, news, utube, and simple games like angry birds. Don’t get me wrong this is a good tablet for basic needs. I kinda like this tablet buts its weak and isn’t a gaming tablet. U can’t play roblox on this it’s just not powerful enough it just lags and knocks me off. It’s okay for the money but kinda wish I would of saved up for a better tablet.

    Excellent Value for the Money

    I really like this tablet. I don’t need any fancy for my basic needs. This is much faster than my older tablet and just a fraction of the cost that I would have paid elsewhere for something compatible.The screen protector that came with this phone was EXTREMELY difficult to install. The tabs would not come off of the individual sheets and while trying to remove them, the sheets were damaged. It was difficult for me because I have arthritis in my hands. This is a heads up for others who might have the same issue. I had to buy another screen protector.

    love using an 8 inch screen

    I really like this Lenovo Android tablet – it’s small (8 inch) enough and very lite to use for most of your surfing needs. And 8 inches makes it easier to type than a 10 inch tablet!

    Good quality but storage is a problem

    Good quality tablet, like screen (made with glass), sound is awesome, but only don’t like the small storage as system consume 14gb, usable only 18gb. Min apps alrd installed and consumed 4gb alrd.Would get a more storage version instead.
