    Outstanding tablet and stable

    |
    Posted .

    I have bought Samsung tablets in the past for my son. Each Samsung tablet that I bought always broke down within a three month period of time. I contacted Samsung and received extremely bad customer service. I decided to go back to Best Buy and chose a different type of brand. LENOVO was owned by IBM. and I decided to try them out for the great low price they have for this tablet. I am glad I tried this brand it has been more than six months so far and the tablet has work flawlessly and had no trouble at all. I like the fact that there are speakers on front of the tablet. And my 10 year old son has been using it 24 /7 and had no issues. I highly recommend.

    Great tablet at a great price. Hard to find case and screen protector. I was hesitant to by a tablet due to my not being a computer expert but this tablet surpassed my expectiations. Not to small but not too big. Fast internet processor and plenty of memory. Also has port to add memory which is an awesome feature that not may tablets have, but can extend the life of my tablet. I haven't used the camera yet, so I can't comment on that at the moment. I would highly recommend this tablet to anyone- first time tablet owner or not.

    Good Tablet

    I purchased a 7" (another brand) two years ago for my 70+ year young mother. It was hard for her to see plus the unit failed within a few months. I purchased a 10" tablet (again another brand) a little too big. It was hard for her to hold. And when the dogs came up to her the static would make the unit lock up. I purchased this unit in November and worked with it until Christmas when I gave to her as a gift. So far it's a perfect fit. The unit is behaving well. She has been spending many hours a day with no problems. I think I have a keeper this time.

    Great Father's Day Gift

    I had been looking at and comparing tablets for a while, and had finally narrowed it down to a Lenovo. We use Lenovo at work and they take less tech support than our Hewlett Packard laptops. I have an iPhone, but while it works well, it is nothing special. I feel they are over priced for what comes in the box. I had narrowed my tablet down to a Yoga, but my wife got this A8 on recommendation of an associate, and I am so pleased. It is fast, much faster than other tablets I have used, especially Windows tablets. I have no problem multitasking, and can surf while downloading. The speakers work well. And everyone talks about the gorgeous screen. Oh, and I have deleted and installed a few apps, as you might expect, and have had no difficulties. There are plenty of apps available. I would recommend this tablet to everyone.

    This is a fine tablet for the specs and price point. I mainly use it for digital Bible study publications (less books I have to carry to meetings) plus a few downloaded videos. Those aspects work just fine. I haven't yet utilized it for games or streaming. The 8" screen is a nice mid-size.

    This is one of the best tablets for it's price, everything works great, and I think having Full HD screen and huge amount of internal memory is for advertising products, I wish to have it with simcard slot, but it wasen't available in Bestbuy,

    Great fast low cost android tablet

    This is a excellent low cost 8" android tablet . I bought as a exercise companion at my home gym. Netflix and Hulu and other media apps fly with good wifi internet. The only bother is not the tablets fault . amazon instant video blocking all other android tablets other than amazon's grossly over priced Fire tablets or apples ipad. With my charter cable internet and excellent wifi router this tablet handles all the media and internet chores I throw at it . The lenevo A8 is great and make a great gift.

    Really like this tablet for the money. Is easy to navigate and I love the size. The only drawback for me is the control buttons. They are not easily accessible once I put the tablet in a case.

    Excellent budget tablet

    We bought this for my wife who wanted something more portable than her laptop. She is thrilled with this tablet and it goes with her everywhere. She uses it for facebook, listening to audio books, reading Kindle books, reading library books, and playing games. Cons: This was our first tablet. The documentation that comes with this tablet is pretty much nonexistent. The 'User Guide' on Lenovo's web site isn't much better. I am in no way a computer novice. I've earned my living on computers and had my own computers for about 40 years (think TRS-80). I had trouble figuring out how to do things on this tablet - mainly because it is a very different paradigm from PC/Laptops. The documentation does not take this in mind. Also, nowhere is it mentioned that Adobe has discontinued Flash support for Android, so many of the games my wife liked to play on Facebook no longer work. (We have loaded an old version of Flash and that got some of her games back.) It would have been nice to know that Flash wasn't supported before we made our buying decision. That said, however, we are very happy with it and would certainly recommend it as an entry level tablet, so long the prospective buyer was aware of the caveats above.

    The Lenovo Navy Blue A8-50 Tablet with16GB of internal memory is a great tablet. I have had it for 3 months now and it does everything I need. I watch movies (Netflix, U-verse, YouTube, etc.) streamed via Wi-Fi, use it for social media, and games. I love the size of the 8 inch screen and its sharp resolution and true colors. I would definitely purchase this product again.

    This tablet is awesome!! It gives you more freedom to do stuff than an I pad plus you can upgrade the memory with a micro sd card. Over all this is a good buy.

    I bought this one for my son. It's great for a first tablet but some games do challenge it. It has frozen several times during game play. Would buy it again if for the same reason but not if it was for me.

    The Lenovo is just the right size for my wife. She really likes it a lot. The 8" is just the right size. She uses it all the time and she never lets me use it. That is okay as long as she is happy

    If you're looking for a decent tablet at a reasonable price, this is a good choice. Not the highest end anything, but you aren't paying an arm and a leg for it either.

    I bought this mostly so that I could watch movies on it or listen to music. I really like it and so far have not problems. The voice command to chat works really well and I didn't even know it came with that app.

    mostly fine but a few quirks

    |
    Posted .

    For the most part I'm satisfied with the tablet. There are times, though that it can be rather sluggish, then times that it completely locks up and sometimes can't be turned off, then randomly reboots itself. That's not frequent, but the couple times it happened, frustrating. I don't use it for anything too strenuous, general web browsing, social media and as a kindle reader, so its doing the job.
