There are not a lot of midrange tablets that have incredibly sharp screens, but that was before the Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 came into the scene. This 10.1-inch tablet does away with this trend as it brings a bright, high-resolution display that you will mostly find in higher-end slates. This makes it a more affordable option for a compact multimedia device. However, while it does have a great screen, its performance leaves much to be desired.
The Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 Has a Great Display, But It’s Another Story for Its Performance
For its design, the Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 is surprisingly heavy. It has 9.72 x 6.73 x 0.35-inches for its dimensions and it weighs 1.12-pounds. These are similar dimensions to what you can see for the Amazon Fire HD 10. However, Amazon’s offering is at a lighter 0.95-pounds.
This 10.1-inch tablet has a display that is its main selling point. The screen of the A10-70 has a Full HD 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution that has a premium look and feel. This display is excellent, especially when you look at the tablet’s price class. Pixel density is at 224ppi, which delivers optimal crispness and sharpness for every image you throw at it. This is a great screen for watching movies that have FHD resolution. Still, this kind of resolution is no match for what its competitor from Samsung has to offer. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has a 9.7-inch display with 2,048 x 1,536 pixel resolution at 320ppi.
Right out of the box, Lenovo’s tablet comes with 16GB of storage while the only configurable space is only at 10.76GB. There are quite a bit of bloatware in here which includes apps like Sound Recorder, Tap the Frog, and WPS Office. Only some can be uninstalled freely.
The tablet is powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz MediaTek MT8165 processor, which gives only average performance. Benchmark results are also average and can keep close to its competitors, but does not actually surpass them. That being said, while the screen does look incredibly sharp, screen transitions are laggy and gaming frame rates can even dip to low numbers. Hence, the perhaps the main use of this display can only be found in watching videos and viewing images.
For its price, the Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 does offer a great screen along with some other decent features. However, there are other more suitable options in the market that can even offer better in terms of display resolution and performance.
