Poor Connectivity

Not 4G

The VivoTab 8 is not 4G, although this is within the context that most of the other tablets of a similar age and type to the VivoTab 8 are also not 4G.

Tablet computers which are 4G that might be worth looking at include the Yoga Tab 2 8, or the Yoga Tablet 2 both from Lenovo or the Asus Transformer Pad TF303.

Not 3G

Most tablet computers of this spec and age are not 3G. The Asus VivoTab 8 is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.

If you would prefer a tablet with a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) then you might also want to consider the DELL Venue 8 Pro (5MP and higher rated), the Asus Memo Pad 7 ME176C (5MP and higher rated), or the Lenovo Miix 2 ($399.99) (5MP and higher rated).
