    Can’t believe Samsung charged $264 for slightly better specs in the Samsung Tab A 8.4…
    If this was 1080P I’d get this instantly

    FARK! I just spent ~$100 for that dumb Lenovo 8″ M8 FHD tablet last week — and no cellular!!

    • Nate

      That Lenovo probably does circles around this thing…

      • Bklynman

        It does according to 238 people on their site. He fails to mention it come with free smart charging dock.

        • Nate

          Keep in mind thats the old version with the dock. They just refreshed it with a MT Helio P22T processor and 3GB RAM for $140 and no dock.

    • Bklynman

      I just went to their website(Lenvo). To checkout this tab. 238 people gave it 4.7 rating. Read the reviews about Alcatel tab on Tmo site.

    DONT DO IT. ITS A TRAP. Alcatel makes the worst tablets TMo sells. Why do you think they’re so cheap and often free?

  • Bklynman

    I rather buy one brand name Chinese tablets, Teclast etc. Can get some them with kb, cellar connection for less than $200. Anywhere 4 to 8 gigs of ram with 64 to 128. I believe they even havd some with 8 256. You can check out Banggood.

    The new Samsung Tab A7 has roughly the same specs. Much bigger battery. Better screen resolution, and 2.4 inches bigger screen for $160 at walmart. And you don’t need an extra line to get the deal.
