Design and display

This Lenovo P8 has a capacitive screen of 8 inches with a resolution of 1920x1200p (WUXGA). A lightweight 320gr tablet with a rough plastic back shell. This is a plus, since apart from not leaving marks, it provides a good grip to the device.

It has dimensions of 20.80 x 12.30 x 0.88 cm and has a micro USB port, slot for memory card and headphone input 3.5mm.

Regarding autonomy, it presents a more than solvent battery of 4250mAh.
