Reviews Word on the street for the Lenovo Ideatab S2109A


6.3
The IdeaTab A2109 has a 9-inch LED 4-point touch screen with a 1,280x800-pixel resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio.

6.8
Display: Of all things, our least favorite part about the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 is the low quality 9" WXGA 1280 x 800 LCD display it's rocking.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Everything else could be perfect about this tablet (which isn't the case), and it would still be unbuyable because of the screen.
by Android Police (Oct, 2012)
While I do enjoy the cube-like home-screen motion, I personally find some of its widgets to be extremely unattractive.
by c|net (Oct, 2012)
I've formally reviewed dozens of devices and played with dozens more since joining AP, and it has the worst display I've ever seen by a long shot.
by Android Police (Oct, 2012)

Battery

It's hard to say, but the battery life is very good.
by Android Police (Oct, 2012)
Battery life is outstanding, especially during idle.
by Android Police (Oct, 2012)
Battery life is fantastic, though if I had to guess, that's because of Lenovo's very aggressive default power saving settings.
by Android Police (Oct, 2012)

Battery life

Even in use, battery life was better than average.
by Android Police (Oct, 2012)
For those wondering about battery life, it's on par to most comparable tablets we've checked out – meaning, it's enough to last us a solid day with normal usage.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2012)
Of course, power users will also be able to get by on a day as well, but it'll require a charge prior to bedtime to be at a reasonable level in the morning.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2012)

Operating System

Whether it's using the stock Android browser or Google's very own Chrome, it establishes a tasteful experience thanks to its smooth and instantaneous navigational operations.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2012)
Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 Sample Video: Multimedia: Relying on the good 'ol stock Android music player, it has the balanced appeal with its presentation to remain relevant against most other things.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2012)
Conclusion: Being a relatively new player in the Android tablet space, Lenovo clearly has the formula in conjuring up a respectable tablet – albeit, they still have a lot to learn before being regarded as a contender.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2012)

Ports

Up top is a sleep/power button and on the right are a Micro-HDMI port and a Micro-USB port.
by c|net (Oct, 2012)
Above the volume rocker is a small switch that's so firm I thought it was stuck in place for the first few days, and a headphone jack.
