Conclusion Lenovo tablet review
Lenovo Tab March 10 Business – a Lenovo tablet review designed for a narrow range of consumers, such as office workers, employees of business enterprises, IT managers, etc. The device does not attract too much attention, its design is rather modest and unassuming. The screen is large – 10 inches with a resolution of Full HD, but it becomes almost unreadable on the street. Among other drawbacks: the absence of the light sensor is not the most productive filling. The device, though a prefix «Business», in fact, designed for simple office tasks, such as viewing mail, run simple applications, documentations, etc.
On the other hand, hardly anyone expects anything more, considering the price tag of the device – $ 310 on average for the described packaging (there is a version with LTE). But this amount is included in the high-quality display, good autonomy, lack of body heat, as well as additional “buns” in the form of built-in security features, manage and support applications (Android for Work System).
