Review Lenovo Ideapad A1 Tablet

 

Solid entry-level tablet? The new Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet A1 was an

Good manufacturing quality; Price/performance ratio; Handy size; No crashes during the tests; Good battery life

No HDMI out; Short illumination of menu buttons; Reflective screen; Only 12 month manufacturer warranty; Needs a second to wake up from standby

In our opinion, the Sony Tablet P/S because of the ease of handling on the Android side. The Dell Streak 7" is also handy, but doesn't have a viewing angle strong screen. The HTC Flyer 7" WiFi +3G excels with Access Point function and Magic Stick for...

The Lenovo A1 is a classic Android tablet, at an attractive price, but its subpar screen gives the competition an edge.

The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 includes front and rear cameras, Bluetooth, memory expansion, and a full-fledged Android experience, at a great price

The screen has a bad viewing angle, the design is chunky, and the Android OS isn't the latest and greatest

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 Review

 

At $249, the IdeaPad A1 is one of the least expensive full-fledged Android tablets you can buy. The build quality is certainly better than other budget slates we've tested from Ainovo , Archos , and Pandigital --and the battery life is strong. However,...

Long battery life, Relatively inexpensive, Multiple color options

Outdated OS, Dull screen, Weak performance, Low-res cameras

The tablet market is quickly dividing into two camps: those competing against the iPad on the high end, and budget-minded products that compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire.

When you take a look at the specs for the A1, the choice to go with Gingerbread makes a little more sense. The A1 is powered by a single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, with 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This is enough for smooth...

Phone apps look fine and work well. Decent battery life

Subpar screen. Middling performance. Rapidly aging OS

With both the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet available for $50 less, the Lenovo Ideapad Tablet A1, with its middling performance and low-quality screen, is a tough sell.

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is a 7-inch (1024x600 pixels) tablet running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. In addition, it also comes with Wi-Fi connectivity support, 3-megapixel camera, GPS, 16GB of built-in memory and a microSD slot.

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 7″ Tablet Review

 

A well-rounded tablet for the price. The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 has everything you could need from a slate, including a decent screen, GPS, Bluetooth, and a front and back facing camera.... It's a fully-functional, ultra-portable, and very affordable tablet.

Affordable full-featured Android tablet

Outdated CPU and OS

The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 tablet is by no means a bad product; in fact it's a good alternative to those no-name tablets we see at Fry's and MicroCenter (Azpen, ChinaMart, even some Coby's aren't so hot). But the tablet's OS and CPU are already dated, and...

With the IdeaPad Tablet A1, Lenovo has attempted to make a fun and easy-to-use 7-inch tablet for the masses. Unfortunately for Lenovo, Amazon has already cornered that market with the Kindle Fire. The IdeaPad A1 is not only $50 more, but it offers up a...
