    Default New budget Android Tablet from Lenovo at Rs.5499.

    Lenovo has launched another Android Tab 2 A7-20 in budget category which is priced at Rs.5499/- (approx $92). Now the phone is available at online shopping site Snapdeal at a price of Rs.5000/-.

    The tablet offers 7 inch IPS display with 1024X600 resolution. It runs on Kitkat 4.4 but can be upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop in future. It has a 2 megapixel rear camera and 0.3 megapixel front camera.

    It is to be noted that Lenovo Tab 2 A7-20 is a WiFi only tablet and doesn't have SIM support. It has 1.3 GHz processor with a RAM capacity of 1GB and inbuilt storage capacity of 8 GB which is expandable upto 16 GB. It's powered by a 3450 mAh battery.

    Again, as with most budget tablets we've talked about on here before, the specification is adequate apart from the amount of RAM on offer.

    With a lot of software these days they rely a lot on RAM and 1G isn't going to be enough for the majority of people.

    I think if they upped it to at least 2G and upped the price up slightly, they'd end up selling more in the long run.

    The feature seem to be decent considering the price tag. The big let down to me is, the non availability of SIM card option. I think it's not going to sell in good numbers, because not all have wifi at their homes. Otherwise, the tablet is pretty good considering the price and features.

    But I think it is not a bad choice either considering the low price tag of less than $92. We can't expect more than 1GB RAM within that price range. I think the handset is for low end users only. As you said they could have increased the price a little bit for 2G, they already have a 2G variant model called Tab 2 A7-30 which is priced at $142 (approx) and its 3G variant costs around $200. I think Lenovo is planning to penetrate in all sections of the society.

    For high end users, they have another model Lenovo Phab Plus at approx. $350. It features a 6.8 inch full HD which boasts of a pixel density of 326ppi which is a distinct feature of this device.

    But in my opinion as tablets are coming down in price, we should be able to get a tablet with 2G or RAM forme $110 at the mistvthese days.

    Manufacturers are unwilling to increase the RAM in their budget range because they know it will have an impact on their other models and sales of the mid range tablets will drop.

    I think it will sell. I think parents especially will purchase them if their kids want a tablet. These things are really coming down in price. Personally, I will stick with my laptop because I work online and my laptop I can take anywhere just as you can a tablet. If you are just playing games or browsing these 1GB tablets are great.

    for home use, a tablet with 2 GB RAM and only wifi is better than one with 3G connection but only 512 RAM.

    Mobile connection as never been an issue for me either, and anytime I use my tablet out and about I'll just tether it to my smartphone and use that as the internet connection. I have unlimited data so it makes more sense for me to use that than to pay for a separate SIM and contract.

    Lenovo is someway good. I don't have a tablet so I can't say anything regarding it. I know that camera on tablets is very bad and performance for games are awful.

    It is better to buy a mobile phone than a tablet. My opinion.

    Currently, I am using Lenovo and I love it. Lenovo is trying penetrate all sections of society. I bought A 7000 for 9000/-. It is working fine, for now. Lenovo recently launched phab, a combination of phone and tablet. I haven't seen it yet. But I think that it'll be good.

    Absolutely, even a 2 GB RAM is going to be a border line case in future when every day new apps are being developed. In that case 2 GB RAM is the minimum thing one should look for. Moreover, in Android phones there are frequent updations going on which eats up a good amount of memory. A handset which keeps on hanging almost all times will only give a headache.

    I think if you are a game freak, even 2 GB RAM will not suffice for high graphic games to run smoothly. So I believe 1 GB RAM is going to be a big drawback for this model for sure.

    For gaming purposes I don't think any mobile device, and that's including a laptop will ever be able to compete with a desktop PC.

    With higher specification's that's needed for gaming, the heat and the ventilation will become an issue and in that respect a desktop PC will always have more options.

    There is two models,I had one, but I sold it. In the design of these models, the two looks good fineness and weight favoring its grip. In the case of Lenovo TAB 2 A7-10, their actions amount to 189 x 105 x 9.3 mm, while the Lenovo TAB 2 A7-30 measures 191 x 105 x 8.9 mm. In both the weight it stands at 269 grams. Another key difference between these settings is customization.
