I was comparing them the other day when A7 was one of my choices..

M10+ compared to A7:
- a little slower processor performance
- 1GB more in RAM (4GB vs 3GB)
- Metal body vs plastic
- Considerably cheaper for what you get. (128GB storage for $224 vs 32GB for $329)

P11 PRO is not in the same price level as this M10+ so it's not an option to wait for those people wanting a cheap tablet but on the other hand...Tab P11 is worth it if you can wait.

I managed to get the 64GB A7 for $268 all in but I'm still waiting for it to ship to me. Seeing this deal I'm not sure if it's worth the extra though. Only really plan on watching shows/movies and casual web use. Not for gaming or any intense app usage

FireHD10 2019 CPU destroys anything in this price range. But double the RAM on the Lenovo.

I don't know how to mod mine. So it sits in a box somewhere.

It's only 8 years old (introduced 2012 November 13).

I still use mine but the battery is really weak. The howto videos on battery replacement don't make it look trivial.

We also have a Nexus 7 (second version) limping along.

There do not seem to be inexpensive tablets that are as good. I guess iPads are the way to go -- Android tablets are a shrinking breed.

On topic -- first gen M20 experience:
  • the Alexa dock won't function as a speaker without Alexa. Seems odd and unfortunate. We don't want something listening to us.
  • the lack of Widevine is limiting.

Know anyone who could use a free charging stand for one? The tablet itself broke a few years ago and the wireless charging is non-standard so can't use it for anything else. Hate throwing out things that aren't broken like the stand.

Have the exact tablet, bought from b&h at $269 a while ago. So the price is definitely right at $220.

A few things to watch out for:
- limited choice of cases. Lenovo naming scheme also make it really confusing when buying accessories.
- no hdmi out. Doesn't work with dongle.
- no Netflix hd.
- battery life is average.

Can anyone confirm if you can just remove the Alexa service and use Google Assistant with the dock? For the price of the tablet that's pretty good. We don't use Alexa at home anymore, everything's switched over to Google Assistant.

I'm curious if anyone has real world experience with M10 Google Assistant?

I was debating between this and the Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab, and opted for the Yoga, because the "dock" is essentially built in and can be carried around anywhere.
I can conveniently keep beside, or move to another room to work out and still use google assistant, etc.

I will give a quick review of the Yoga Smart Tab:
Picked it up for ~220.
The display and usability is great. Sometimes I end up watching shows on it rather than the tv due to convenience and portability. Fast enough. Screen is lacking, but I wasn't buying it for that. Mostly wanted a dual purpose Google Home device and tablet. When asleep, it displays my shared Google photo album, which is great.

The biggest Con, is that it isn't a Google Home Device.
Google home devices (ex. Nest / google Mini / Lenovo Smart Displays) will know about eachother and only answer back on one device. This is a tablet with Google Assistant listening when asleep, it can answer at the same time as a Google Home device, so sometimes I'll get duplicate replies.

It also only recognizes one person's voice, which is a huge downside. (I'm experimenting with having 2 google accounts logged into the tablet, but at the same time it more of a public/shared device so its tricky.)

I'm hoping someone can reply about the M10, and confirm it is the same or different.

you tell me about it. So apparently, the Smart Tab M10 FHD (Gen 2) with Amazon Alexa (https://www.lenovo.com/ca/en/workperksc ... MD00000426) which includes a Smart Dock is cheaper than the ones with Google Assistant which don't seem include a Smart Dock. Their prices and namings are f*cked up.
