Not a bad tablet, but there are better for the price.

Andrew Sitek, Amazon
7 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this around Black Friday in 2011, and there were many tablets on sale. I have always liked Lenovo computers, and assumed the tablet would be good as well. Once it was opened and setup, the Lenovo custom interface (pictured in the middle of the screen) is very inconsistent and the touch screen is iffy. Occasionally the screen would not respond and the swipe features were not working properly.

Many things could be better

  • Summary: I bought this before going abroad so that I could check email, keep in touch with family, etc. without bringing my laptop. I'm not particularly impressed with this tablet, but I've found ways to fix most of my problems. Here's what I like and dislike most about it: PROS - Lightweight, ultra portable. - Customizable home screen, themes, backgrounds. - Runs most of my apps without issue. CONS - Wi-fi dropping issues.

THE LENOVO A1 HAS HIGH POTENTIAL, BUT HAS A MAJOR PROBLEM

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 March 2012
  • Summary: Pro's - Great 1080P screen, good speaker volume, fast, runs most apps, cameras are OK, not loaded w/ bloatware and many apps that come pre-loaded are easily removable by user. Cons - Factory Launcher is bad. The home screen only works in portrait mode & the huge widget takes up most of the screen (this can be corrected by loading Go Launcher Ex, which solves all the launcher problems), but the worst problem are the very important 3 bezel mounted control buttons (back,...

A Kindle Fire alternative

Enrique Gonzalez, Amazon
23 March 2012
  • Summary: This was my original review but now read the last paragraph below for my last opinion on this product. After using a Kindle Fire for 4 months I decided to sell it and try the Lenovo A1 tablet. First I tell you what I really liked about the Kindle; 1. The screen is beautiful, it uses IPS technology. 2. The way it integrates with Amazon. 3. Price 4. The way it feels in my hands. What I really disliked: 1. Can't change the way it looks, it's locked to Amazon 2.

It works as advertised, but VERY poor instructions

Tim Metz, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: My 9 year old daughter recently bought the Lenovo Ideapad A1, which we ordered directly from the Lenovo website. After researching the 7-inch tablets in this price range, I preferred the Lenovo tablet for its ability to transfer owned videos and music directly from a PC (I backup all of our children's DVD movies and music CDs to a PC), for its expandability via a microSD card slot, and its direct access to the Android applications market.
