Lenovo IdeaTab A8-50  tablet review

I'd been looking at the Asus Memo Pad 8, planning to buy, then saw this one. Asus and Lenovo are both are solid names with good reputations, I've owned and loved laptops made by both. The price is practically the same. I'm not normally an "early adopter," but the dual front speakers and a color other than white are what sold me on this one. I ordered it today, should be here Tuesday, so more to follow.

The build feels solid, and finish feels good and "grippy."

Display is bright, and looks good from the side. I'm generally using it at 60% brightness in normal room light. I like the 8" form factor, my eyes aren't young any more. :)

The sound is OK, the SINGLE speaker faces front and is about what you'd expect.

Battery life: It drops about 2% per hour when in "standby." Watching videos will use about 14% per hour with the display at 60% brightness.

There's not a lot of bloatware. Of the 16GB of storage, about 11.8GB is available to use. (And a 32GB Micro SD is under $20 now.)

The OTG port works as expected. No problem reading a thumb drive, or seeing my smart phone as external storage. It even charged the phone while connected.

The cameras are mediocre, but don't expect much from a tablet. My phone is much better as a camera, easier to use and always with me.

Performance seems fine, I haven't noticed any lag or hesitation.

Value: It's the best price of the "major" brand 8" tablets. To me, it feels more solid than the Dell Venue, and the display looks better than the Asus Memo Pad. If you're looking for an 8" tablet under $200, I'd recommend it highly.
