Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaTab A1000

82% Review Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 Tablet | Notebookcheck
Entry-level revisited. Lenovo releases a budget-friendly 7-inch tablet with Android OS and low-power hardware. Can the bargain-basement offering from the well-know manufacturer hold its own or have the cost-saving measures been taken too far?
How important is audio quality in a budget tablet?
Source: Engadget English
The only thing Lenovo's IdeaTab truly has going for it is its emphasis on audio quality, but when all is said and done, that's not enough for us to recommend it. The unforgivably shoddy display was far worse than we would have expected even at this price. Even if we were able to look beyond that obvious shortcoming, the tablet's poor performance would have been the final nail in its coffin.

At $129, the Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 is a capable Android tablet for everyday Web browsing, music listening and casual gaming. We also like that it gets more than 8 hours on a charge, but wish it offered just a little more performance.

40% Review: Lenovo's IdeaTab A1000 is craptastically cheap
Source: TechHive.com English
If you just want a cheap Android tablet to have around, this one qualifies. But do yourself a favor and try to scrape up the extra Benjamin for a Nexus 7, which runs Android 4.3 (the A1000 runs 4.1) and sports a 1280-by-800-pixel IPS screen that’s a squillion times better, give or take a couple of zeroes. Right now, the Nexus 7 is the best 7-inch tablet you can get. The A1000 is just frustrating in comparison.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 might be among the most affordable tablets available, but its entertainment focus and front-facing speakers aren't enough to make up for an otherwise below average device.

7":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.348 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


63.83%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
