Lenovo IdeaTab S5000

 

The Lenovo IdeaTab S5000 sits squarely in the mid-range tablet classification both in terms of hardware and build. Although critics find the overall design to be attractive, they also mention that it feels rather cheap as its plastic chassis tends to...

Light weight, Good screen brightness and contrast, No noticeable lag or stutter for both daily and intensive use

Poor red and blue color fidelity, Plastic body creaks and deforms under pressure

Everything seemed to have been on a diet on the Lenovo stand at IFA 2013 in Berlin, not only was its 6.9mm slim Vibe X smartphone on display, but we were

Lenovo IdeaTab S5000 review

 

Nexus 7 rival shown off at IFA 2013

Thinner than most of its rivals ; lighter than most of its rivals ; cheap price point

Uninspiring specs ; uninspiring OS overlay

Lenovo's new 7-inch S5000 slights the iPad Mini and Nexus 7 in weight

 

The S5000 may not impress with components, but at the very least, the 7-inch tablet won't keep you bogged down.

Lenovo Ideatab S5000 review

 

Why haven't Lenovo cracked the tablet market? After all, we all know that Lenovo make great laptops, so they know about portable computing.

lenovo 7 inch tablet

 

Overall, happy with purchase thus far. Time will tell. Better than samsung tab2 7inch as I have both.

Lightweight, sharp screen, OTG compatible. You can use a thumbdrive with approprite cable. A definite plus

Lack of mini sd card slot. Didn't read fine print. My mistake but no biggee with use of cable. Crummy manual on tablet, not printed. First time users need help

Lenovo S5000 Tablet

 

I wanted to find an inexpensive tablet so I could just test it and check it out to see if I really wanted to switch from a laptop to a tablet. and at this point I am really sold on both the tablet device and for the Lenovo brand. the product works...

Android O/S works great, it looks and acts just like my phone so it is really easy for me to use. Beautiful display. Size is good for most everything. Battery lasts a long time. Usually minimum two days for me, most of the time thredays. this model is...

Does not have the mobile data feature which could come in very handy especially for Google Maps. Which I like to use a lot. but I did not pay for that either so it really is not a con just a comment
