Lenovo A1000

 

Speaking of features, the tablet 's inclusion of Dolby Digital audio enhancement is its one possible saving grace. It's geared toward audiophiles, but due to its headphones -only functionality and a lack of user-friendly integration, it's not as easily...

The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000's Dolby Digital audio enhancement features make almost any pair of headphones sound great, and the microSD expansion slot is a welcome addition.

The tablet's screen is unfashionably low-res, with washed out color and narrow viewing angles. Graphics-heavy games chug something awful, apps sometimes stutter when launched, and Netflix video doesn't play.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 is a meek 7-inch tablet that cuts far too many corners to reach its budget price.

Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 review: A budget tablet that cuts too many corners

 

Even when compared to other sub-$200 tablets in its weight class, the Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 comes up short in features, performance, and screen quality. While the microSD storage expansion is welcome here, it's not reason enough to buy the tablet. There...

A decent tablet for budget conscious users, with great battery life, audio and build quality, but mediocre camera

"Great Phablet for the price."

 

The audio & performance are perfect, but front camera for webcam is very dark & blurry. Internal Storage is partitioned to 500MB (1.5GB after OTA) & USB Storage, which makes me run out of space after a few app installs. on Dec 9, 2013

The phone function, Audio quality, and performance are excellent for the price.

The front camera is useless, and the internal partitions need to be combined.

worst Customer service, bad tablet

 

they should control better their client services, and REALLY record or monitor the call as they tell you at the beginning of the call, Ignorant reps, they don't even know anything about products, rude, hang up on you, bounce you between departments,...

None, I could have bought a better Generic Chinese tablet, with same specifications, for same SHELLSHOCKER price. paid price because thought Lenovo respected their name, WOW !!! how wrong I was ..... UPDATE; the battery life is EXCELLENT !! the tablet...

SD card is there just as a decoration, you cannot transfer Apps on it, nor download anything on it, RMA to Newegg, and same problem with replacement, Customer service the worse ever, you think that IBM Lenovo respects their products, and clients??? you...
