What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Constructed out of polycarbonate plastic and aluminum alloy combination, it has an appealing visual contrast, seeing that the materials give it a clean finish.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)
Like we said, for what it’s worth, it gets the job done, but it isn’t the most prevalent or astounding display we’ve seen.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)
While it's a beautiful tablet, we're going to cut right to the chase with what we don't like here: the user interface and the display.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)

Operating System

Although they’ve made several Android based tablets to date, none of them have been able to find that path to success in making them serious contenders in the space.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2013)
Blessed with a retail price point of $249.99, it easily undercuts many of its rivals in the affordable Android tablet space.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)
Unlike the stock and most up-to-date Android experience that’s running on the Google Nexus 7, Lenovo’s customized Android experience follows a similar premise by simplifying things – though, the result isn’t quite as transparent from a user’s standpoint.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)

Apps

Swiping downward from the upper-left corner will bring down the notifications tray, where you can see incoming or missed notifications and messages.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)
To close apps, simply swipe upward and it will disappear, although push notifications and other critical tasks will remain (e.g. push mail won't stop just because you swipe the Gmail app away).
by TechRadar (Nov, 2013)
Quite honestly, we didn’t expect to find anything extravagant with the customized experience, even more when they decided to do away with the apps panel.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2013)

Battery

Donning a 9000 mAh battery, it’s rated to deliver 18 hours of battery life with Wi-Fi web browsing.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2013)
Specifically, its hefty sized 6000 mAh battery is able to pull out an impressive 13 hours, 23 minutes running our custom battery benchmark test.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)
In fact, the rolled up portion is comprised of its cylindrical handle, which also holds its uniquely shaped battery.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2013)

Operating system

When it all comes down to it, consumers can grow to appreciate the tablet, as long as they can tolerate and make use of its bland software experience.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)
Certainly, the design is different and unique, a refreshing thing to see in a world of slates, but as we look into the software experience, we find some of its biggest opportunities.
by PhoneArena (Jan, 2014)
For the most part, you just need to toy around with the UI and software to figure things out.
