Pros Battery Processor Look Touch
Cons Front Camera
Summary I brought from the US store though i reside in India. Probably I'm in top 100 users of Ideapad A1 in India , as the tab hasn't yet launched here.
And of course I love the product. It is absolutely worth to your money.
I have compared lot many tablets and I say without any hesitation that this is the best in 250$ range. The touch is amazing and probably one of the slimmest tablets ever.
Front and rear cameras are addendum, which are not present in other tablets of its cost.
What I observed is, at 250$ range Ideapad is far better to Amazon Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet
Better than Reliance 3G tab ,Beetel magiq ,HCL Me,Kindle Fire, Nook tablets in all aspects
Pros Price, Build quality, Offline GPS, IPS screen, Gorilla Glass,Two cameras,Android Market, Micro SD slot, micro USB 2,seven hour battery, and did I mention price?
Cons Processor a little slow with multiple apps running
Summary I don't understand why all of the naysayers try to compare Lenovo's A1 with Apple's IPad. That is kind of like comparing apples to fruit basket.This was not designed as an Ipad killer. It was designed as a Kindle Fire killer, and it does that job well. Feature for feature this 7" tablet wins on all fronts with the Fire, except the (slower) single core processor. I love how it feels in the hand, and how smooth it functions. It is not a replacement for a laptop, nor was it intended to be. It is just plain fun to use. Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 work very well,if you really have to have Honeycomb then spend the extra dough
Pros *Good price-quality ratio
*Offline GPS (but very slowly)
Cons *Sometimes it can lag
*Old Android version (update is not planned)
*Can't be used as an OTG USB slot (You can't connect pendrive or 3G modem to this tablet)
Summary As the price of the product as such, its performance is quite good. The workmanship is also satisfactory.
If you do not want complicated options and looking for the device for browsing or navigating, buy confidently.
Pros High def responsive screen. GPS which can be used as a Tomtom offline in car without connectivity (free worldwide maps). Front and back cameras with free Skype or Oovo video calls. 16GB which we easily expanded to 32! Robust magnesium allow sides.
Cons No cons thus far!
Summary We've had this for 2 weeks now, very happy with it! Thus far all good things, nothing bad. Just concerned on what we would do when battery dies, as there is no info on battery replacement options. But perhaps generic ones will become available!
Pros So far, the run time is OK, not great. Have gotten over 7 hours on a charge and have more life still there, not a lot, but some. I have been doing a LOT of surfing and watching downloaded TV, CNET and others.
The screen seems to be very good and I can vi
Cons We normally live on a boat and use a number of GPS products. This pad seems very slow to lock on that sats!
As of now, Skype video will not work on it. It receives video just fine, but will not send from the front or rear camera.
Summary All in all it's looking like a good temporary tablet. Not one I would want to make my workhorse.
