The Tab 4 10 Plus emphasizes comfort over style. Its gray, soft-touch plastic makes the chassis easy to grip. However, due to the material, the case is a bit of a dust magnet. Unlike previous Lenovo tablets, this one does not include a kickstand, which I would have preferred for binge- watching.
While I was flipping it over, I noticed the elegant, gray-silver curves that led me to the display. The bezels are a decent size, providing enough space for the fingerprint reader at the bottom and the front camera at the top while not being very distracting. Above the webcam, on the curves of the tablet, lies two neatly dotted panels for the speakers on opposing ends.
On the left side of the Tab 4 10 Plus is a volume rocker and a steel-dotted power button that looks cool and is satisfying to touch.
Display: Great but some glare
The 10.1-inch FHD 1920 x 1200 IPS display on the Lenovo Tab 4 Plus is plenty bright and colorful, but I noticed some glare as I watched the new trailer for White Boy Rick on this panel.
As Matthew McConaughey stood on the streets of Detroit at night, his fur jacket, facial pores and ’80s mustache were illuminated by a yellow street lamp, creating a crisp, yet tonally dark image. There was still an immense amount of color, from the varying shades of his complexion to the backdrop that featured appropriately green bushes and teal icicle lights.
Performance: Could be better
Inside that sleek body lies a 2.0-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8953 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of eMMC storage and a Qualcomm Adreno 506 graphics card. Those specs pushed the Tab 4 10 Plus through PUBG unhindered, but I noticed a couple seconds of lag when I had 10 Google Chrome tabs open and tried to open a new page. I was able to watch 1080p YouTube videos without a problem.
