Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 Review

Lenovo came with their tablet- the IdeaTab A2107 which so far has got a rather cold reception. Most of the people who even want to buy a tablet end up buying a 5 inch smartphone instead. The tablet looks very normal just like most tablets. Instead of incorporating the Android Jelly Bean versions they stuck to Android v4.0.3 ICS. It baffles me. But it can do a lot for so less. It is not a really feature-full tablet but gives you a touch of Lenovo.


Design

The Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 has a really “natural and true to most tablets” kind of a structure. It looks like most of the other tablets. It has a nice smooth matte finish which feels great in your hands. The 195.1 x 125 x 11.9 mm dimensions give this tablet great portability. The bezel is just too long for the best possible handling. The volume rockers are on the left side and the home or the power button placed safely at the top. Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 is just rightly curved at the back around the corners for a comfortable fit to the hands.

Display

Lenovo’s IdeaTab A2107 has a 7 inch display. The first impressions or just the overall impression would be quiet normal, the display is not striking and it won’t blow your mind. With a rather low pixel density of 170ppi and resolution of 600×1024 pixels there is only so much they can project to our eye. The colour tone is much better on the Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 when compared to tablets by HCL or Micromax or even the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (specifically). Viewing angles are okayish.

Camera

Camera is not a make or break situation but it does matter. On the rear side, Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 has a 3.15MP camera which is quiet an average one. Good enough to take pictures and share on social networking sites but not meant for storing as memories of your holiday or something like that. This camera can also take 720p HD video. Secondary front facing camera is also just ok. It is a VGA one and pathetic for video calls.

Software

Lenovo ditched the Android Jelly Bean versions to put v4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich on this tablet. I mean that operating system is years older. They might have done it so as to make it a perfect fit for the processor. Google Play has decent number of quality apps for you to explore and use. It offers great customization and that is all some people need.

Performance

They have again gone for a MideaTek MTK processor; it is again a single core 1GHz processor like the one on its younger sibling. It comes with 1 GB RAM. The tablet experience is quiet average. It does lag a lot the more you use it with time but then which Android tablet does not? It will multitask easily. It comes with internal storage of 16GB expandable to 32GB via microSD cards.

Final Thoughts

See Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 might be the simpliest of tablet but it is still one of the best options for this cost price. The more aggressively built tablets are better but they are costly. It is your part to decide. For mere reading and watching this is your tablet to buy.

Lenovo IdeaTab A2107 comes for Rs. 9230
