Lenovo Tab M7

The most I like about the design of this device is that it’s not too big nor too small. For me, it’s the perfect size as it easily gets in one hand and feels really lightweight as well. The back of the device is made of metal but it also has plastic strips on the top and bottom of the device. The bezels are a little bit thick otherwise it would have been perfect. Holding this device in hand gives a premium feel even though it’s a cheap device.

Overall, it’s a well-designed tablet with the nice build quality and a comfortable grip as well.

Lenovo Tab E7

The Lenovo Tab E7 feels lightweight and compact as it’s not a big device. Unlike the Tab M7, it’s not made of metal but then also it feels quite nice but not as good as the Tab M7. This device can also behold in one hand easily. We can also carry this device anywhere and it can easily fit in our pocket as well. The bezels look quite thick but that’s fine considering its price. The build quality of the device is good in spite of having a plastic body.

Overall, the build quality is good, quite comfortable in hand and also nice design as well.

Lenovo Tab M7

The Lenovo Tab M7 has got a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600p. This display doesn’t support HD resolution which is fine as this is a cheap category device. So if you want to watch movies in HD quality on this device then you are going to be disappointed.

The brightness of the device is good enough to use it indoors but it is not good enough for use in direct sunlight. As the display would get too dark and you will only be able to see your own reflection. Other aspects like color reproduction and contrast are decent enough at this price.

Lenovo Tab E7

The Lenovo Tab E7 has got a 7-inch diagonal screen. However, it only supports the Standard definition which was expected at this price. Also, this display doesn’t have an IPS panel and it means that the viewing angles are a little low as well.

Now, if you want this device for watching videos or movies then you should know that you could only do that in standard definition only. The brightness of the device is good enough for indoor lighting conditions but it is not good enough to use in direct outdoor lighting conditions.

Lenovo Tab M7

If you want this device for entertainment purposes then you might need to get a separate speaker. As there is only one speaker on the top of the display but that is also not a good one. There is no bass and also the sound is not clear enough on this device. If you really want to use this device for watching movies and videos then you should use earphones.

The performance of the device is good enough for daily tasks like streaming videos, using social media, listening to music, browsing on the web, and if you like reading as well.

However, streaming videos is not that much fun as there is no “AC Wi-Fi” but only “Wi-Fi” on this device. This is a little bit disappointing and I do think that they should have provided this tablet with AC Wi-Fi.

The Lenovo Tab M7 is not for gaming in any way. Even then I played some simple games and those games were working pretty well. However, if you want this tablet for playing high-end games like PUBG or Call Of Duty then this device is definitely not for you.

Lenovo Tab E7

The Lenovo Tab E7 has got only one speaker and it’s also the earpiece as well. However, this speaker is not too loud but it’s decent enough for an empty room. This speaker is clear and loud enough to watch movies or listening to music in an empty room. But I wouldn’t recommend using this speaker in public areas as it would not be worth it.

The performance of the device is good enough for daily use almost all the google apps run smoothly because these are the “GO” apps specially made for devices like this. However, multitasking isn’t nice because of its low RAM memory.

Even the Chrome Tabs have to be reloaded when multiple tabs are open at the same time. Also, the apps running in the background get shut down and that’s also because of the less RAM memory.

Now, if you want to play “high-end” games on this device then you would be disappointed as those are not playable at all. However, simple games like Temple Run, Subway Surfer, and some other games like this are playable without any issues.

Overall, this device is better for doing everyday things like playing YouTube videos, listening to music, browsing the web, or some other simple tasks like that.

Lenovo Tab M7

There is nothing much to say about the quality of the front and back camera. As these are 2-megapixel cameras on the front and the back and also the quality of these cameras is not good at all. As a matter of fact, these cameras take blurry pictures, and also the video quality is not especially in dark lighting conditions. However, these cameras are best suited for online classes/ video calling or scanning any document.

Now, according to my battery test, it lasts somewhere 9 hours. In my test, I always put the tablet in video playback mode at medium. In my opinion, the battery life is very poor as it takes somewhere around 3 to 4 hours for the device to charge which in my opinion is not a good thing.

Lenovo Tab E7

The cameras are very much similar to that on the Tab M7. These cameras also take blurry pictures and decent videos just like the Tab M7. If you are in bright light conditions then you can expect somewhat decent images but don’t expect nice quality images at night time. However, these cameras are decent enough for online classes for students or even for video calling.

The battery life of this device is not too good as it only lasted for somewhere around 6 hours in my video playback test. Hence, if you use it very for some things like playing games then it will lose battery life much faster. However, it doesn’t lose much battery life in stand by mode.

Which Should You Buy?

Now, if I need to buy one of the devices then I would definitely go for Lenovo Tab M7. The Lenovo Tab M7 has got better performance, better battery life, and also better build quality as well. However, both of the devices are very much suitable for every day and they don’t have too many differences so you can go for either of the device.
