The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 might not be a big deal for top tier gadget enthusiasts. Still, it is a considerable alternative for those who want a slightly more feature-rich, productive yet
Although the Lenovo IdeaPad is not currently making any waves in the tablet market, you can still find it available at some select stores at a retail price point of $199-$210. With this price, it is a healthy competition to Amazon's Kindle Fire. It backs it up with more storage, a more extensive app store, an appreciable camera, a full-fledged Android experience, and a decent battery life.
It's been about nine years since the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 was released in 2012, and the world has moved on. This is not farfetched because the tablet market has become a two-way horse, and many products are being released with the bang effect. If you still own this tablet and are pinning for a change, our representatives at Gizmogo can help you. You can sell your Lenovo IdeaPad A1 for cash, or you can trade it in for a more suitable tablet available on the Gizmogo website. Call us today to begin.
Design Info: In terms of design, there are many similarities between the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab released in 2010. Moving on, given its price point, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 does not signal elegance and durability at first glance. It comes with an exchangeable back cover made of plastic with a high gloss look and available in black, white, blue, and pink.
Weighing about 400 grams, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is quite chunky, and this is expected from every tablet within its category. However, its plastic build makes the overall weight of the tablet bearable, and if you are used to carrying about tablets of its kind for long hours without flinching, you might even consider it a light device.
The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 comes with all the standard ports and controls you expect from any Android tablet; no surprises here. You will find the volume control button and the tablet's orientation-lock switch on the tablet's right edge. At the top of the tablet are the 3.5mm headphone jack and the power button, while the tablet's bottom edge houses a speaker grille, a microUSB port, and a MicroSD slot for the memory card.
Three capacitive buttons sit below the screen; they only light up when they are touched, making it pretty much difficult to find in lower light.
Display Info: The screen size measures 7-inches with a 1024 x 600-pixel resolution, a 16:10 aspect ratio, and a ppi density of 170. The screen's brightness is sufficient only for indoor use; you might find it quite uncomfortable using the tablet outdoors due to its reflective and glossy display.
Capacity Info: The storage capacity is nothing to brag about but then again, what can you expect from a $199 tablet? It comes with 512MB RAM and a 16GB internal storage space. For additional memory support, the dedicated microSD slot can support a microSD card expandable to up to 32GB.
Weight Info: The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is not such a chunky device. It weighs approximately 400 grams and measures 195 x 125 x 12 mm.
Camera Info: By tablet standards, the camera performance of the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 isn't all that great. It comes with a rear-facing 3.0-megapixel camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The rear camera doesn't come with a LED flash, so you should be content with just having good pictures taken in daylight. In addition to this, the rear camera can also shoot videos up to 480p.
Audio Info: The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 comes with a single ¾ inch speaker giving room for only mono sound, so if you want to get a better range and audio quality, it is better to plug in your headphones on the 3.5mm jack.
Battery Info: Like all portable devices, the battery life of the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 solely depends on what you do with it. It comes with a non-removable Li-Ion battery, and following a full charge, you should expect about 7.5 hours of playing 2D games or using an app and 8 hours of listening to good music!
Performance Info: Nothing exciting is going on with the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 in terms of performance. It runs on the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) version, and in addition, it comes with a 1.0 GHz Cortex-AB. Its chipset specifications are enough for a smooth ride with the tablet.
You will barely experience crashes and app delay launch times. If you are a gamer, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is adequate; the Riptide GP can run on the tablet with no issue, although the graphic quality will not be as bright as some tier-one tablets. The web browsing experience of the tablet is quite commendable. It is capable of good web surfing, and navigation is made seamless through its on-screen keyboard.
