Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 Review
Source: Slashgear English
In the end the Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 is a well built tablet, it functions well and operates smoothly. The mid-range at best specs, low resolution, lack of a rear camera, and occasional stutters makes it hard to justify. For the price you could do better, but if Lenovo drops her down to $299 this might be a slightly different story.

The Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 isn't terrible, but it just isn't nearly as good as some of the similarly priced or even cheaper alternatives. At the low end is the $199 Nexus 7, which features better specs in nearly every way at half the price. The $379 Asus Transformer Pad TF300 also bests the IdeaTab S2109 in pretty much every single category. There's also the Coby Kyros MID9742, which is similarly equipped, but costs only about $200 at most retailers. It doesn't have access to the Google Play app store, though, so the IdeaTab S2109 will still make a better tablet for most consumers. If it were priced $100 lower, I could see some real use for the S2109, but as it stands I really don't see any reason to choose the S2109 over the TF300 or Nexus 7.

Thinnest in its category. The IdeaTab S2110 is one of the thinnest and lightest amongst its 10.1-inch peers, complete with a dual-core Qaulcomm CPU and even a docking station for keyboard and touchpad support. The complete package can be had for under $500, but is it a worthy contender against the current crop of Android tablets?
Lenovo IdeaTab S2110A Review
Source: Slashgear English
I have to say that I have very mixed feelings about the S2110A. The screen is beautiful, and bright colors, sharp images, and wide viewing angles make the tablet a pleasure to use. The optional keyboard dock is also a winner in my book, and I like it so much that I can’t recommend picking up the S2110A without one. There we run into a problem though: the keyboard dock is an optional accessory, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s an integral part of the S2110A experience.

The Android tablet market is as competitive as ever, especially with so many inexpensive yet fully featured options out there. The Lenovo IdeaTab S2110A has only one thing really going for it—an excellent optional keyboard dock. Without it, the S2110A falls short of competitors, with its choppy animations and more limited gaming capabilities. The Asus Transformer Pad TF300 is more responsive, better for gaming, has a similar optional keyboard dock, and is less expensive to boot. Then there's the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity, which offers a similar docking option and a better full HD display, but is priced a bit higher. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, however, retains the top spot for large screen Android tablets, with a bevy of features that help it compete against the New Apple iPad $499.00 at Apple Store. The S2110A isn't a bad tablet. It just doesn’t do enough to distinguish itself from the pack.

Entertainment tablet. The newest device of the IdeaTab family is a big 10 inches and features a quad-core SoC. Thanks to its IPS display, it should be especially suitable for multimedia tasks. How can the tablet stand out of the crowd of competitors?

10.1: The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions.

0.5624 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

1.107 kg:


68%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
