Review Lenovo IdeaTab A3000-H Tablet

 

Dual SIM card tablet. The A3000 is another model in the IdeaTab s

Quad-core SoC; Dual SIM card slots; IPS display; Good contrast and good average display brightness; Expandable memory; Remains reasonably cool

Price; Display resolution; Battery life; Camera quality

The combination of an IPS panel, high contrast and good display brightness is appealing to us -- the weak resolution is not.

Lenovo IdeaTab A3000

 

The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 might be the perfect tablet for Android users who are looking for a cheaper 7” tablet alternative but do not want to sacrifice quality. The A3000 is a 7” tablet like the A1000, but that's where the comparisons end. Unlike the...

Lenovo IdeaTab A3000

 

Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 is a slightly beefed-up version of the IdeaTab A1000 that comes with a quad-core processor and dual cameras - 5-megapixel on the back, a VGA front-facing one. Rest of the specs are the same and include a 7-inch 1024x600 pixels...

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 IdeaTab A3000

 

Meet the Lenovo A3000, a seven-inch Android slate that's aimed at taking on the Nexus 7 thanks to its low-price of £149.99 and speedy quad-core processor in a small-sized form factor, but can it stack up to the likes of the even lower priced Tesco Hudl...

Lenovo's seven-inch slate is not a bad effort by any stretch: it's perfectly nippy, performs well in games and when multitasking, but its poor screen lets it down, while its homescreen 'additions' leave a sour taste in the mouth. For the price tag,...

Nice Unit For The Money

 

I wish you didn't have to go to grey market units to get SIM slots...a good amount of programs use phone access. I'd read the review on the A3000-H, which had the ability to be used as a phone...hence the mic/headset jack which doesn't work for audio...

I bought this after buying an "off-brand" (IdeaUSA) product. The differences were quite noticeable. This unit is ruggedly built, yet still light, It's quad-core processor does well with Netflix and other videos. The screen is great, off-axis still...

Screen resolution could be better, battery life is said to be 6-7 hours of web surfing...OK, but not great. No HDMI output and rotation can be somewhat sluggish. No SIM slots. Audio jack is a headset out, which, in not having phone capabilities, could...
