Is right that when I take a photo I am able to see the identification of the plant etc. on my phone.

But Not when I look at the photo on my tablet. I have used it a lot and it is disappointing that the same facility is not enabled on the tablet.

Maybe your tablet just doesn’t have enough power? Or, check that your Google PHotos app is up to date. You’re talking about the  Lens feature, right? Are you saying that the lens button just doesn’t appear on your tablet? It’s there, and it works, on my iPad tablet. 

Here is the official help page for Lens. It doesn’t mention not working on tablets. It does give a link to download the standalone Lens app.
