Model: The Lenovo Tab3 7 Essential is a budget tablet with Android 7.0 Nougat. It is a great tablet for which it does not have to go deep into the pocket. The Tab3 7 Essential is the perfect choice for families, as parents can customize the device to suit their own and their children's tablet habits through multiple user accounts. This slim, lightweight, cost-saving tablet can be easily circulated in families, depending on when users want to use it. It's really nice that the tablet gets almost pure Android here. Unlike Huawei or Samsung, there is no heavily customized interface here. In fact, quite a few apps are preinstalled and that's great. By factory setting, the apps installed on the tablet are mainly the Google Apps, Outlook and Skype from Microsoft, as well as some standard apps like a file manager and a radio app. The design and workmanship is not very high quality as it is a budget tablet. The housing is completely made of plastic. However, Lenovo has improved compared to its predecessor. It is much slimmer and slightly better processed. It's also sleeker and lighter than the Amazon Fire. The tablet only weighs 254 g and is 8.8 mm in thickness.

The tablet features a 2-MP front camera and the camera on the back has a resolution of 2 MP. The quality of both cameras is rather poor. For beautiful Instagram selfies, they are not suitable. It is at most okay for video calls in good light conditions. As for the display, it features an IPS display with good viewing angles and colors look neat. It is also nice that it is laminated. There is no difference between the IPS panel and the touchscreen, unlike many other inexpensive tablets. This minimizes reflections. There does not appear to be a fingerprint repellent coating. A user can quickly see fingerprints on the screen. In addition, it is not too bright. For indoors and outdoors in the shade, it's fine. But in direct sunlight, it is too dark. For hardware specification, it has a 1.1 GHz MediaTek MT8735 quad-core chip. There are 1 GB RAM and 16 GB memory. However, 6.8 GB are already occupied by the system, so users are left with 9 GB for apps and media. For simple tasks, the performance is acceptable, but a user should not expect more. On the right side, there is a power button and the volume control. At the top sits a MicroUSB port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Lenovo has housed a slot for MicroSD memory cards on the left. The memory cards can also be used as internal memory. Above the display is a speaker, and that is the only speaker available. With the decreasing market for tablets, the Tab3 7 Essential fills up one last gap in the tablet industry. It is best used for very light gaming, reading or for kids to play with.

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.

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.
