As we've all come to expect with taking photos with a tablet, they're best reserved for only those worst case scenarios when nothing else is present – and the same can be said about the Lenovo IdeaTab A2109! We won't get into the details, but the snapshots taken from its 3-megapixel camera look like muddy paintings lacking any detail and solid colors. Worst yet, we won't even go into the horrendous shots it captures in low lighting.

Whoa! Talk about super slow-motion! Needless to say, we're not all that surprised by the similar results found with its 1080p video recording, but more shocking is the fact that it captures video at the slow-as-molasses rate of 12 frames per second, rendering them unusable! Yeah, we're scratching our heads with this one too.

Relying on the good 'ol stock Android music player, it has the balanced appeal with its presentation to remain relevant against most other things. However, with its two speakers, which offer SRS WOW HD, it doesn't deliver the potent punch with its output to throttle any sort of commanding tones – though, the available equalizer settings help to ease things a little bit.

Again, it isn't all that unexpected to find the tablet easily handling most high-def videos we throw at it – like 1080p ones encoded in DivX, H264, MPEG-4, and XviD. However, due to its washed out looking display, it doesn't present us with the best viewing experience.

No doubt an appreciative thing to find, the microHDMI port of the tablet enables us to get that oh-so lovable mirrored experience on a high-definition television.
