The USB Type-C port with Quick Charge 3.0 and 3.5mm audio jack are located at the right side, though as with all tablets, if you're using the tablet the other way around, then I suppose it's on the left.

Android 7.0 Nougat is the name of the game, and the Tab 4 8 Plus is no different.

If you're letting your kids use the tablet, Lenovo sells a shock-resistant bumper to protect it from bumps and falls.
