Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1 Review

techbargains.com
17 April 2014
  • Summary: The IdeaPad Tablet K1 is an inexpensive alternative to the iPad that's also extremely capable, thanks to its powerful processor. It packs tons of space at an extremely competitive price to Apple's tablet and the customized interface that Lenovo has made with Honeycomb turns the device into a comfortable experience. Plus, it comes with pre-loaded apps, so you can instantly leap in and enjoy your new device.
  • Pros: Design Aesthetics:, Incredibly Fast Start Times:, Battery Life:, Lenovo Customized Experience:, Lenovo Pre-loaded Apps/App Store:, Price:
  • Cons: Hardware Issues:, Inconsistent Multimedia Presentation:, Glossy Screen:, Sluggish Speed/Performance Crashes:, Data Input Issues:

Lenovo IdeaPad K1

CNET
16 January 2012
  • Summary: Lenovo plays it safe with the IdeaPad K1, delivering a solid tablet that does little to stand out from the Honeycomb herd.
  • Pros: Lenovo's IdeaPad K1 packs in all of the best features found in today's modern Honeycomb tablets (upgradeable to Android 4.0) and offers some unique Android optimizations and preloaded apps.
  • Cons: The design is thick and heavy compared with the latest from Apple and Samsung, not all of the Android tweaks pay off, and the screen isn't as bright as it could be.

Lenovo IdeaPad K1

16 November 2011
  • Summary: The K1 does impress considerably with the sheer performance. It doesn't slow down even with multiple apps installed and running in the background, something that bugs most Android devices. However, the build quality is disappointing, and the K1 does heat up quite a bit even after 20 min of web browsing. Not surprisingly, we would recommend the Motorola Xoom or the slightly more expensive but much superior Samsung Galaxy Tab 750.
  • Pros: Very good OS performance, Lots of preloaded apps
  • Cons: Average build quality, Heats up considerably after few minutes of use

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Tablet Review

Notebookcheck
20 October 2011
  • Summary: First timer: Along with the X Series and ThinkPad Tablet, Lenovo’s IdeaPad K1 is the company’s first major salvo into the tablet marketplace. With a competitive price tag and strong features, the K1 is aimed straight towards casual users.
  • Pros: Low price, Speedy specifications, Low weight and smaller price tag.
  • Cons: Gingerbread still an early platform, Poor OS X support, Mixed build quality, Decent app stability and non-flexing displays.

Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1 (Wi-Fi)

PC Magazine
14 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1 is as good as its Android Honeycomb tablet competition, but doesn't offer any game-changing differentiators that make it stand out in the ever-expanding tablet space.
  • Pros: Fast performance. Good multimedia features. Clever button and camera layout. Physical Home button. Netflix is preloaded.
  • Cons: Prone to crashes. Thick. Lots of bloatware.

Lenovo IdeaPad K1 Review

Digitaltrends
28 September 2011
  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for an affordable 10.1-inch tablet, the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 is not the cheapest tablet, but at about $450, it does come in at less than most other 32GB models. The K1 is a bit too heavy and large for its own good, and Lenovo’s Android modifications are a mixed bag, but there is nothing particularly offensive about the design, specs, or operation of the device. It’s just nothing special, which might be the biggest knock against it. Everything is merely OK.
  • Pros: Good pre-loaded apps, Good price for 32GB of storage, Lenovo App Shop good for productivity apps, Physical Back button works well
  • Cons: Heavy & big, No microUSB port, Crappy charging port, Android UI modifications are ugly, Plastic backplate is hollow & attracts fingerprints

14 September 2011
  • Summary: Verdict: Since the K1 offers loads of software, is a Honeycomb device and sports potent hardware, it’s a great value buy that delivers a smooth experience.
  • Pros: Loads of apps and games preloaded, reasonably priced, delivers a decent user experience.
  • Cons: Rear cover cheapens the K1’s otherwise premium look and feel, home button isn’t placed well.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad K1

Wired
23 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I paraphrase Andy Warhol when I say: Eventually, everyone will build their own tablet computer. Like the scourge of reality television, manufacturers far and wide are trying to muscle into the tablet world, each producing a machine about the same as the last. Lenovo’s new Android Tablet, the IdeaPad K1 , is at least a credible contender in an increasingly iPad world.
