The Lenovo Tab3 A8 is a 2016 8-inch budget tablet. It has received praise for its value, packing in a lot of features at a low price. The device shines in terms of software, with family-oriented features that make the device suitable for both adult and child use. Multiple accounts can be created, and Kids’ mode can be activated on any account to create a child-friendly environment. Not only for kids, though, the device has a clean design, acceptable performance, and with an intuitive interface. However, its performance is not stellar, and it will struggle in advanced tasks and newer games. Regardless, for the price, it is not half bad, and overall, the Lenovo Tab3 A8 remains a solid budget tablet.
