Performance and Battery:
Lenovo IdeaTab S2110A demo unit only supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz), but the range is good, as we were able to stay connected to our router for up to 50 feet.
Regarding the battery life, the IdeaTab S2110A by itself is capable of 9 hours of web browsing or app usage, but when you connect the optional keyboard dock (that has a built in battery), you can get up to 20 hours of web browsing or app usage.
When compared to other tablets on the market, the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110A is geared more to the business professional or student that is looking for an Android tablet to use while on-the-go, and have the benefit of a physical keyboard that can be easily added or removed at will. Overall, the performance of the tablet is good, but it still remains a mid-range device, since the display quality isn’t as good as other high-end tablets, the camera quality is severely lacking, and data connectivity is limited to Wi-Fi unless you get an optional add-on 3G network card, which doesn’t appear to be available yet. All of this together, means the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110A does not stand-out from the myriad of other Android tablets that are on the market, but it still should not be overlooked.
