Reviews Word on the street for the Lenovo IdeaTab S2109


6.0

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

It's an IPS panel with 178 degree wide viewing angles and an impressive 420 nits of brightness.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)
And the IdeaTab S2109 has an excellent display.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)
What's hot: Sharp and bright IPS display, great speakers.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)

Camera

The 1.3-megapixel front camera won't exactly inspire much cinematic experimentation.
by c|net (Jul, 2012)
The tablet has a gyro sensor and an ambient light sensor.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)
That is, if I could get the camera app to actually start.
by c|net (Jul, 2012)

Cpu

The dual core TI OMAP 4430 CPU running at 1.0 GHz is the disappointment here.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)
What's not: Unimpressive CPU.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)
But the older and slower CPU doesn't impress us and performance could be snappier.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)

Operating system

While that matches the screen specs of the iPad 2, it's actually lower than what you get on the vast majority of Android tablets.
by c|net (Jul, 2012)
Yes, that's the same aspect ratio and screen size as the ever-popular iPad line, but somehow it's never caught on among Android tablet buyers.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2012)

Operating System

If you have the disposable income, however, the TF300 is the better Android buy, with the iPad 2 being the overall recommendation in the $300-to-$400 10-inch tablet subcategory.
