I got John Lewis to Price Match Currys, who were selling the Pearl White Lenovo Tab 2 for £129.99.

John Lewis have now dropped the price for both the Midnight Blue and Pearl White Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70.
Currys are now out of stock.

Buying from John Lewis comes with a 2 year guarantee included.

This is a different tablet to the Lenovo Tab 2 A10-30 (Not Full HD, Only 1GB of RAM)
Being sold at Argos for £119.99

I bought this tablet a couple of years ago from John Lewis for £149.95
It's a really good value alternative Android tablet.
If you read the forums, if it's running Android lollipop, there's performance issues wifi and sound. Many people have returned them, with the Android lollipop installed.
When I bought it, it was running KitKat and I've not had any real issues with it. I'm still on KitKat and ignore the software update notifications.

Here's a forum article on how to downgrade it to KitKat

I didn't like the Lenovo launcher either, as they've gotten rid of the APP drawer.
So I also run Nova Launcher as well.

Yeah....same price :).....but only 1 year warranty :(
#3
I have one...can recommend. Not good for hardcore gaming I'm told. No hdmi out. Love mine though.
#4
I use TSF launcher with mine. Will look at rolling back to kitkat as it needs a reboot if plugging in headphones in at the moment. No wireless issues here tho.

Guys, you shouldn't be spending 130 quid on a tablet that's essentially stuck on Kitkat. There will be loads of security vulnerabilities that have been fixed in later versions.

Quite tempted to get this just for reading comics. The older version of android shouldn't really matter too much for that, right??

Totally didnt know this. So any device that isn't running the latest android is vulnerable? Considering the regularity of windows updates and the irregularity of Android updates wouldn't this be a major major issue?

Yeah, on those teeny tiny tinny speakers it's not very convincing....my dolby app stopped working after upgrading from kitkat too...but who watches movies without headphones on these things?

I guess you mean this one - http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6779469?cmpid=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59158|cid:200223050|agid:12488286530|tid:aud-144400486596:pla-279968784158|crid:66128551490|nw:g|rnd:6870472907955927135|dvc:c|adp:1o1&gclid=CjwKEAjw2qzHBRChloWxgoXDpyASJAB01Io0ewlDJIhitlbV4LJwquUm1_97YpRy6imvkfxeKUDLPRoCKVvw_wcB

It's got slower Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU's and it's not Full HD.
But it's got Android Marshmallow installed, that the TAB 2 A10-70F will never have.
I'm even tempted

Maybe I'm in the minority here but personally I spend a bit of time to research and install custom roms on my devices to sidestep slow/unwilling manufacturers

I put custom firmware on almost all my devices too but I usually find it better to stick to a few brands that have good community support at xda, e.g. Samsung, Xiaomi, Motorola. I'm not sure if there is much in the way of AOSP or Lineage ROMs for this tablet.

I bought one of these at Xmas for a present to my son. it's very snappy indeed and I think the screen is very good. Unfortunately it stopped charging and was sent back to Lenovo for warranty repairs. They supposedly replaced the main board and sent it back. Wouldn't turn on or even charge... It's back over in Europe at their service centre undergoing repairs. Had an email from them the other day saying they couldn't replicate the problem... The mind boggles, how can you not replicate a dead tablet FFS! Hopefully they can get their act together this time!?! Great tablet when working and not being serviced by Lenovo Europe!
#17
Got the tablet back from being repaired. turned on setup and updated all apps. used for possibly 1 hour and now the screen no longer detects touch. Looks like it'll have to go back for a third time...ffs!!!

Have factory reset, hard booted all to no avail. Works fine with a mouse plugged in
