Lenovo A8 review

 

When you're low on cash, it doesn't get much better than a $180 tablet. Lenovo's new A series of tablets are built for buyers on a budget. The Lenovo A8 is a typical 8-inch tablet with a HD display and other mid-range specs.

Low price point of $180 ; Good for reading ; Nice, simple design

No HD display and a wide bezel ; Poor-quality back camera ; Long load time with heavy-duty apps like YouTube

Although Lenovo is marketing the A8 as a great bargain for buyers with a tight budget, it doesn’t live up to expectations. You can buy a 2013 Nexus 7 from Google for only $50 more, and you should.

Lenovo A8 Tablet

 

The Lenovo A8 is a well-made 8-inch Android tablet that offers a rich IPS display and long battery life for less than $200.

Sharp screen; Solid construction; Long battery life; Useful app for sharing files

Somewhat dim display; Middling graphics performance

Lenovo A8 ( blue)

 

With a starting price of $179, the Lenovo A8 will satisfy bargain shoppers that have basic needs. However its lack of app tray produces an unnecessarily unorganized experience.

The Lenovo A8 starts at $179 and features a comfy and lightweight build. The built-in Dolby Digital audio integration enhances the mono speaker's sound quality, and its IPS screen boasts wide-viewing angles, with deep contrast levels.

There is no app tray, and organization of menu screens can get tedious. Both rear- and front-facing cameras produce dull photos.

The Lenovo A8 is a solid, simple slate, but its lack of an app tray makes other budget options more appealing.

Lenovo A8 Review

 

The Lenovo A8 is an affordable Android tablet with a nice display, long battery life and design that feels nicer than the $150 price suggests. This 8-inch tablet runs Android 4.4, offers 16GB of storage and the ability to add a Micro SD card for more...

A really great tablet for the price!

 

If you want a good tablet but hate to spend a lot of money this i a great buy.

Amazing battery life! Will last 2 days of pretty heavy usage before I need to charge it, and then it only takes 3 hours to fully charge. Battery doesn't seem to drain when in standby. The speaker is nice and loud with good sound and very nice display....

The only real cons that I can find is the lack of an app drawer and, I like to have my apps strategically placed on my screens and every time I power the unit off and back on, they are rearranged in a straight line across the tops of the screens
