Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 Review

 

It's entirely usable and functional, but for $300 to $400, you can do better.

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 review: a budget-priced ICS slate with a few too many quirks

 

More Info Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 teased by FCC, launching with 9.7-inch display this month? Lenovo's IdeaTab S2109 unveiled on YouTube, shows

Lightweight, comfortable design ; IPS display with good viewing angles ; Silicone case included

Short battery life ; Performance trails other tablets ; Inconvenient speaker placement

The Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 offers a clean build of Ice Cream Sandwich in a light and comfortable package, but its sluggish performance and short battery life dampen our enthusiasm.

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109

 

The Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 is an Android tablet with low-end specs, but a midrange price tag, making it a hard sell when compared with some less-expensive and better-equipped alternatives.

Android 4.0. Solid build quality. Loud speakers.

Aging components. Middling performance. Odd screen aspect ratio for Android. Too expensive for what you get.

Conclusions The Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 isn't terrible, but it just isn't nearly as good as some of the similarly priced or even cheaper alternatives. At the low end is the $199 Nexus 7, which features better specs in nearly every way at half the price....

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 Review

 

The $349 Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 offers a bright screen, long battery life, and very good sound, but it's too pricey compared with the Android competition. The ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 offers a quad-core CPU and a sharper 1280 x 800 display for just $30...

Sturdy, lightweight build, Powerful speakers, Good battery life, Uncluttered Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Low-resolution display, Not the fastest CPU, Pricey for the overall package

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 Review

 

If you're one of the few that is looking for a decent mid-range well rounded Android tablet that also manages to come in the same shape as the iPad, we might have something just for you. Today on the SlashGear test bench is the new Lenovo IdeaTab S2109...

When using this tablet over the past few weeks we decided that for $349 you could probably do worse, but at the same time you could easily do better. Overall Lenovo has designed a decent mid-range tablet with ok specs, and a low price. With the iPad 2...

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109

 

If you think that the Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 is just another Android tablet, well, you're right. After all, it comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed, and runs on a mildly outdated yet still quite capable ARM Cortex A9 processor with 1GB...

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109

 

Sharp and bright IPS display, great speakers

Unimpressive CPU

The Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 is a well made tablet with a lovely IPS display (even if it isn't full HD), great quad speakers and solid build quality. At 1.3 pounds and 0.35" it's portable for a 10" class tablet. But the older and slower CPU doesn't impress...

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 9.7 Inch Dual Core Tablet Review From Brad *Video*

 

Lenovo's IdeaTab S2109 has been available for some time as a new middle class tablet. The IdeaTab has a 4:3 screen and resolution of 1024 × 600 pixels. Brad from Liliputing has put together a great review of the 9….7-inch tablet. It has a

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 Android tablet review - Liliputing

 

But there’s one thing that makes the S2109 stand out from the crowd: It has a 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display with a 4:3 screen aspect ratio. Most Android tablets gave 16:9 or 16:10 screens

Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 Review and Ratings

 

This thin, light, and attractive Android slate performs well and has superb four-speaker SRS sound. Considering its somewhat outdated dual-core processor and poor battery life, though, it's a bit overpriced. Watch for it on sale.

Wide range of ports and expansion ; Superb SRS surround sound ; Thin, light, and attractive ; Reasonably strong performance ; Good selection of preloaded apps

Pricey for what’s inside ; Short battery life ; Relatively low-resolution screen

Aside from its too-brief battery life and high-for-what-you-get price, we didn't find much to dislike about the IdeaTab S2109. It performed reasonably well, the display quality was good (if not iPad-grade), and we loved the performance of the...
