Weight271 g
Form Factorbar
ColorsSlate Black

This device is made of full plastic body and it is only available in black color. This device is quite solid considering it’s price. However it does feels that it’s a cheap tablet when I hold the device in my hand. It’s more then 10mm thick and it’s weight is around 300 grams.

On the right side of the device, we get to see volume buttons, power button, and there is also a microphone on the bottom of the device. On the top, we get to see a micro USB which is fine in this price range and there is also 3.5mm jack as well. On the left side, we get to see a micro SD card slot which is behind the blue lid with Lenovo branding.

DISPLAY

This is a 7-inch display, it’s diagonal in shape. The resolution is pretty low of 1024 x 600 pixels. According to me, it’s an OK but what’s more disappointing is that it’s not a IPS panel and it also means that the viewing angles are not great. This screen is bright enough to use it inside but you will not be able to use it outdoors lightning conditions.

Now, I also played Youtube Go on this device and the design of this app is much simpler than the standard Youtube version. The videos look decent enough according to the price of the device and I also used Neflix. It took some moments to load the app and when I played a movie it look good enough and of course you can’t play videos in HD on this device as it is not supported.

HARDWARE & PERFORMANCE

System chipMediaTek MT8167
RAM1GB
Internal storage16GB
OSAndroid Oreo (Go Edition)

There is only one single speaker and it is just above the screen. The sound quality on this device is OK but not too good. There is no base and sometimes sound could be really horrible as well. But in this price we should not expect alot from this device.

The internal hardware in this device is Mediatek MT8167 processor and there is only 1 GB of RAM and you have option for storage that is 8 GB or 16 GB. There is also option for 3G device as well.

We get Android Go and because of that the operating system is running smoothly. Even the apps like Chrome, Youtube and apps like that runs smoothly.

As expected it isn’t a multitasking device and apps get closed in the background. Even if there are several tabs open in the chrome browser, some of them have to be reloaded. It also does not support split screen feature.

The gaming on this device is not too fun as the processor is slow. However, I did tried to play some high end games like PUBG, but because of just 1 GB RAM and less storage I experienced a lot of lags and I wasn’t able to play properly. But simple games like temple run, subway surfer were playable.

CAMERA & BATTERY

RearSingle camera
Main camera2 MP
Resolution1600×1200 pixels
Battery Capacity2750 mAh
TypeLi – Po

If we talk about the camera. The back camera has only 2 MP resolution. The camera is not that great but they are decent enough in daylight. So you should be able to shoot some images without any issues but don’t expect good quality images. 

This device has a battery of 2750 mAh. In my battery test, it just lasted for 6 hours, it should have lasted a little longer. And if this device is in standby mode then it will not lose that much of battery life. So if you are a heavy user, then it would not last even a day and if you are using sometimes in a day then it should last at least two days.

CONCLUSION

If you are a power user, then this device is not for you but if you are more simple user like surfing the web, reading ebooks or watching videos then you can buy this device. I am little disappointed, as there is no IPS screen on this device. If there was an IPS panel I would have loved. If you can spend a little more then I would not recommend you to buy this tablet.
