Lenovo IdeaPad A1 Review

Lenovo enters the sub-$250 Android tablet market with its 7-inch IdeaPad A1, but it doesn’t bring much to the table.

2.5 stars
(2.5 out of 5)

One day soon, you’ll find a free tablet in every box of Cracker Jacks, but until then, $249 remains a decent price for a 7-inch Android slate. Unlike other bargain tablets that are loss-leaders for content services such as the Kindle Fire or creaky also-rans such as the Ainovo Novo7, the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 promises a complete Android experience from a reputable vendor. However, that experience includes too many compromises for many users, particularly when it comes to performance and usability.
