Readers will see in the following sections how well the test subject holds its own against each first-class tablet.
Pros: Display brightness, Battery life, Relatively high-performance hardware, Price, Temperature gradient, The tablet's price is appropriate, since this midrange model can boast very good performance. All of its apps can be used without any problems.
Cons: Storage cannot be upgraded, UHD video is not supported, Battery cannot be switched out, Weak camera performance under low brightness, The workmanship has a few small but obvious weaknesses. A better camera and an SD card slot would not hurt.

Excerpt: The Lenovo IdeaTab S5000 sits squarely in the mid-range tablet classification both in terms of hardware and build. Although critics find the overall design to be attractive, they also mention that it feels rather cheap as its plastic chassis tends to creak and deform slightly under pressure. The plastic body does however make it very light – it only weighs 244 grams, which is almost 100 grams lighter than the Nexus 7 .
Pros: Light weight, Good screen brightness and contrast, No noticeable lag or stutter for both daily and intensive use
Cons: Poor red and blue color fidelity, Plastic body creaks and deforms under pressure

This tablet is definitely one that has stayed away from the cupcakes. Along with its svelte build is its light weight, coming in at 246g, which felt very light when we held it.
