User Reviews 1 User Reviews I found the Moto Tab tablet to be very disappointing overall. I thought the 16:10 aspect ratio was nice at first, but the touch latency and laggy performance quickly ruined the experience for me. The cameras were bad as expected. The software was inconsistent and unlikely to be updated.

User Reviews 2 I found the Moto Tab's user interface to be very standard Android. The tablet has decent specs like 2GB RAM and an octa-core processor, but I experienced some lag at times, likely due to the limited RAM. The display and speakers produce great video and sound quality. However, the cameras, especially in low light, are just okay.

User Reviews 3 Overall there is excitement about the tablet's large battery capacity and potential for good battery life. Some concerns are raised about the mid-range processor's ability for high performance tasks like 3D gaming. The software capabilities for easy video watching are highlighted positively.

Motorola's latest tablet offering, the Moto Tab, fails to make a strong case for itself in the competitive Android slate market. Released in November 2017, the 10.1-inch Moto Tab retails for $299

At first glance, the tablet seems promising, with decent mid-range specs like an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a 1200×1920 IPS display.

However, multiple reviews, including one from All About Android, exposed significant downsides that make the device difficult to recommend. 

Reviewers faced laggy interface performance and app freezing despite the respectable hardware. The touch latency and response also felt lacking at times.

While watching videos is a pleasure on the Moto Tab thanks to the dedicated TV mode and solid screen, the tablet falls flat in other areas. 

Both front and rear cameras disappoint, capturing poor quality photos especially in low light. 

The software experience proved inconsistent as well, with no guarantee of future updates.

The Moto Tab does boast excellent battery capacity and life, lasting days on a single charge. 

Users who primarily want a media viewing slate may find it useful. 

But for general performance and versatility, far better options exist, even at the same price point. 

There are faster, smoother tablets with better specs and cameras.

In the end, Lenovo missed the mark on its first Motorola-branded tablet since acquiring the company. 

The Moto Tab is held back too much by lag, freezing apps, and subpar camera quality. 

Unless bought at a significant discount, consumers should look at alternatives for their tablet needs. 

Motorola will have to improve considerably on its next attempt to compete with the top Android slates.
