Lenovo TAB 2 A8 hands-on
The Lenovo TAB 2 A8 is the smaller new tablet that Lenovo just announced at MWC. It's a compact slate that has soft touch back and can be easily handled with a single hand. One of the highlights of this device are the front-facing speakers at the front, which make use of Dolby's Atmos audio technology.
Moving on to the rest of the specs, we have an 8-inch 720p IPS display at the front, which is nothing to write home about - it's a bit washed out and has unimpressive viewing angles, which tend to get quite distorted.
Inside, you'll find a 64-bit quad-core MediaTek chipset. It works alongside a single gigabyte of RAM. This hardware setup is not that impressive and naturally, the Lenovo Tab 2 A8 will only serve you good if you throw undemanding tasks at it, like the casual web browsing or checking your email. Storage-wise, you get 16GB. You can also make use of the tablet's microSD card slot, too. Android 4.4 KitKat is powering the tablet, with Lollipop expected to make the rounds sometime in the future.
In general, we think that the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 is a good slate, which will most likely serve you right if you are not into resource-hungry tasks.
