A look at the Lenovo A2107 Android Tablet
Upon first inspection you will notice the sleek design of the table and that it is well built. The tablet is small, lightweight, but very durable in terms of construction quality. Because of its small size you can easily stuff this in a backpack, briefcase or purse to carry it around with you so it is very easy to transport. In total the entire tablet is about seven and a half inches in length and about four and a half inches in width. I first thought the screen was too small and that it would be difficult to see anything, but the more I used it the more I found that it was really quite comfortable to read and navigate around the tablet.
The touch sensitivity does have a very slight delay when you slide your finger across it, but after awhile you get used to it. I prefer physical QWERTY keyboards over virtual touchscreen keypads, but I found typing on the Lenovo Android A2107 to be pretty easy to use. You can also go into the settings menu and adjust the default text size to something easier to read which I thought was pretty cool.
I downloaded a few games onto the tablet and noticed some minor lag and slow down with gaming. I tested out the Android version of Vector– a Parkour style Android game, and it worked great- but because of the slow down it made the game a bit more difficult to play because there was a slight delay between swipes and the character reacting. Simple games like angry birds should work perfectly.
A lot of people also want to know if they can watch videos, so I’ll cut to the chase- Yes, you can watch YouTube videos and watch streaming movies without any problems. I tested the streaming videos out by watching the Walking Dead and it took a few seconds to catch up and load but after that it ran smooth without any hiccups. I was really surprised with how great the sound quality was, it was very loud and clear and I could see and hear everything perfectly.
The Wi-Fi and Apps work great and I was able to install everything easily. Getting the Wi-Fi to connect to my home network only took about five minutes. With Google voice and a few extra apps you can even use the Tablet as a phone which I thought was really cool.
As for the built in cameras, they aren’t so great. They are better than some cameras out there but I found the image quality to be a bit grainy and slightly rough. However, most of the time recorded videos and pictures come out looking pretty good.
Should you buy it?
The average list price for the Lenovo A2107 Android Tablet is fluctuates between $109 through $120 USD. The price might go down lower because a newer version has already come out with a few extra features. So far the Tablet has been holding up and works great and I haven’t experienced any major problems with it yet, so if you are looking to buy one I would recommend you give it a try.
