What customers say about "Key Specs"
Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70F 10.1-Inch Tablet
  • I use it mostly for my ebooks. Because the screen is a useful size, I adjust the ebooks to show facing pages, just like a paper book.
  • I am very impressed with the Lenovo tablet - set-up and connected to home wi-fi easily.
  • Screen resolution is good, sound is good, wifi is fine, and Android updated once the tablet turned on.
  • My only annoyance is that the WiFi drops out - a lot. Having read some forums it appears to be a common 'fault'.
  • The wify signal is very very slow, and and screen rotation sometimes doesn't work.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580) 10.1-Inch Android 6.0 Tablet
  • This tablet is a very good deal and works well. only thing I could say bad is it only has 16GB of storage but that's probably why such a good deal but u can always add a Mini SD in these to add more. I put a 32GB one in it.
  • I love the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1. I put my other one in a safe place. So safe I can't find it. The new tab A has a more elongated screen. I think it's a good thing for watching videos
  • This tablet ended up being the perfect size, I can bring it to class easily, and the expansion capabilities on it are very impressive.
  • Always liked Samsung and this is no exception. Fast, reliable with a great display and memory options [up to 200gb micro sd card].
  • Great tablet with good performance and screen.

What customers say about "Features"
Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70F 10.1-Inch Tablet
  • Battery life with use is amazing most the time i forget to turn it off over night i,e last night it was 88% this morning it is 76% charge with veriosus apps still running.
  • Battery life is better than an ipad and weighs less. Highly recommended.
  • The battery life is superb, as I noticed that it took about 3 days of regular usage (using Netflix, browsing, playing games, etc) until it needed another full charge.
  • If I had one gripe, I think the sound could be a bit louder, although I've tweaked the Dolby app and it's not too bad now, Just upped all the sliders basically.
  • Battery life is good but is a little slow to re-charge.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A (SM-T580) 10.1-Inch Android 6.0 Tablet
  • One of the things the make me very happy is the long battery life.
  • My old tablet gave out completely so I purchased this tablet because it was similar. I am happy with it especially because the battery life is much longer and it is faster.
  • Two bottom firing speakers only (easily covered by hands when holding in landscape mode).
  • The charger gets dangerously hot. I only used twice and stopped using after I discovered there was an issue.
  • The Operating System should be upgradeable. You shouldn't have to purchase a new piece of hardware in order to take advantage of the Android operating systems available.
