There is a famous saying that size does matter and it also stands true for smartphones. Tablets have their own market and demand. There is a good portion of people who actually love big size phones. Tablets are a very handy device when it comes to gaming and watching movies. It greatly improves the experience of gaming as a user has a big screen to enjoy the game and the same goes for videos. Lenovo which is famous for making computers is slowly making his presence felt by launching some amazing devices. After acquiring Motorola, Lenovo is all set to become a key player in smartphone market. After a great success of its first tab, Lenovo has launched another tab with name Lenovo Tab 2 A7-10. In this post, we will discuss each and every aspect of the tab and will let you know, whether it is worth buying or not.
Look and Design:
There is nothing much special in look and design. The device has got curved edges and looks good in the hand. There is a Lenovo branding on the top of the front side. The volume and power button is on the right side while the USB port and 3.5mm jack are on the top side of the device. The back is fingerprint friendly. There is a Lenovo and Dolby audio branding on the back side of the tablet. Since it is a 7 inch tab, you will need both hands to operate it. Despite being a tablet, the device is not that much heavy and weighs only 269gm. It is 9.3mm thick which is acceptable for being a tablet.
There is a 7 inch capacitive IPS display with a pixel resolution of 1024×600 pixels. There is nothing much special in the screen. It offers decent picture quality and color saturation. Although, it is good for watching videos and reading eBooks.
Software and Performance:
The device is powered by a Quad core MediaTek MT8127 processor with a clock speed of 1.3 GHz. Talking about the operating system, it comes preloaded with Android 4.4 but as per Lenovo, users will get the Lollipop update latest by the end of March. Since it is equipped with a quad-core processor, it works pretty well for this price range. We tried games like Asphalt 8 on the device and there was no lag at all. There is a 1GB RAM and internal storage of 8 GB which can be easily expanded up to 32GB. The web browsing experience was also decent.
Camera and Audio Quality:
There is no rear camera in this tablet and even the front camera is not worth it. The front camera is 0.3MP and it does not meets the expectations. If you are a selfie lover, you may need to think twice before going for this device. However, there is something for music lovers. The device is equipped with Dolby Audio technology which delivers excellent audio quality. There is a 3450 mAh Li-Ion Battery which delivers 8 hours of play time. The battery performance was good and lasted for a day with normal use.
