low resolution screen on a 10 inch device, better to pay a bit more for something more mediocre
suitable as a cheap tablet for kids I guess
Can you provide a link to full HD tablet for a "bit more" please ?

Someone else pointed out the old version was better and pops up from time-to-time so maybe not right now but they do turn up (or buy used). Lenovo have been incredibly cheeky by releasing a 'newer' tablet with worse specs, they did this with the Yoga Tab 3 as well - the slowest Snapdragon SoC available and normal HD screen only; it's arguably 'good enough' but when have HUKDers ever settled for that!

I have the older version Tab 2 A10-70F and it's been a nightmare, the internet is terrible and the Dolby was never fixed properly, the internet drops out any time it feels like it and despite the Lenovo forums being full of posts about it they never bothered to reply let alone fix the issues.
They released updates up until Android 5.01 (which never fixed the issues) they went on to release one more update that wasn't even the right one for the tablet but still left it up for a week before taking it down !

If Given the choice I would now take the lower res model if it dosen't have the issues the model A10-70F has.

Is this Marshmallow? Also, is it definitely a Snapdragon processor? GsmArena only show a Tab 3 10inch model with 1920x1200 screen and a Mediatek.

The resolution of 1280 x 800 is a lot lower than the previous version which was 1920x1080 and has been on here many times. Hopefully this will make it a bit quicker as my a10-70 seems sluggish to respond. A nice entry level tablet and probably the right kind of price.

"The Lenovo Tablet won't compromise your on-the-go multimedia viewing" then a lower resolution display. Hate false marketing I feel that this is mis-selling. Companies that take advantage of people that struggle to understand technical specifications should be more accountable. :(

Sounds to me like a little bit of false Product marketing too perhaps? :-(

I still want one though?, hehehe, as it's a decent screen size. :-)

I'm hoping that Lenovo bought out a NEW 10" Android Tablet at the MWC (Mobile World Conference), so as to then have the price of this current 10" Android Tablet beaten down yet again, in a week or two's time either end?! (give or take?, hehehe).

The Dolby sound is amazing, but only when you have headphones on...otherwise its very low and quite tinny

Not at home to check the Android version, but my white A10-30 is indeed a Snapdragon.

very poor gfx chip in these. Most newer games and browsing on busy sites will be laggy. 8" version is faster.

"The Adreno 304 usually only offers half of the performance of the the Adreno 320 and is only slightly ahead of the Mali-400 MP4. Very demanding Android games of 2013 may not run completely smooth, but simple titles like Angry Birds and the usual multimedia tasks are no problem."

Lenovo has a habit of not supporting things very well. My Yoga 2 Pro only got Android 5.0.2 after 6 was already out! Not that it matters as it won't even charge now! With Lenovo you get nice build quality and hardware but support is truly awful - basically if it works when you get it and you don't need support you are fine.

But yes, if the new one was supported better even if lesser hardware I would do the same, though what's the bets they'll release a Tab 4 and pretend like the old one never existed?

I don't get what's happened with the tablet market; almost 3 years ago I got an LG GPad 2GB 8.3" 1920x1200 for £115.
A year later, I got my Mum a HUDL2 (2GB, 8.3" 1920x1200) for £50-odd of clubcard vouchers.
Both are still going strong & perfectly usable devices.

Today, 3 years later, we have lower spec tablets going for the same sort of money?!

Tech. stagnation in the PC market is understandable (Intel monopoly, geometric growth in development complexity & cost, under-powered consoles holding back progress), but tablets? That's still a rapidly expanding market isn't it?

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/lenovo-tab-4
Yeh Tab 4 Looks good and the article says possibly launching as low as £119 but its an approximate from $149 so there's no guarantees the UK will get it for a good price first off. The article also put a launch price of about "£87, AU$141" but postage from Australia would probably use up any savings.
Its stating there's a Standard and a Plus version : " The Tab 4 8 and 10 feature a Qualcomm MSM8917 quad-core processor, a 1280 x 800 display, 2GB of RAM. And the Plus varieties amp things up to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, like the Moto G5 Plus, a 1920 x 1200 screen, as well as 3GB and 4GB configurations." The cheapest might be bare bones compared to what they advertise - I suppose wait and see.
Battery life will be ? they've put: "Tab 4 8 has a 4850mAh cell inside and the Tab 4 10 has a whopping 7000mAh battery" they've not put actual tested mixed running time but I'm sure someone's capable of working it out.
Cant see anything indicating if it will be able to take a simcard/3g,4G, or has internal GPS which is something I now look for - especially as there are some very good data only cards available right now. If it really does launch as cheep as they say it might and I buy one of the other tablets I will feel a bit cheesed off : )

I know it's £25 more, but this .Acer looks like a better buy.

It's a manufacturer refurb with 1 yr warranty from Argos ebay - I've had a mobile phone from them before as a refurb, it looked brand new when I got it, and although it developed a fault after 11 months, they refunded in full with no quibble, so I have no doubts about buying from them.
Just ordered to replace a 4 year-old Acer tablet which has given good service.

I think even the tablet market has stagnated.

I suspect the worse specs is because cheaper components are now available from the start where as before it was more trickle down.

The biggest issue I have with tablets (and even mobiles) is support, even just for security. Id rather go for a windows tablet with LTS than an android tablet which may not receive any updates.

Avoid that Acer like the plague. It has very well documented sleep and battery drain issues which have never been fixed despite numerous updates.

As for this Lenovo...it's fine. It's £99, for goodness sake. The screen is okay, it's quick enough for web browsing and Netflix watching, the build quality is good and - crucially - it has 2Gb of RAM. What do people expect for this price? If it gets nicked or dropped it cost £99, so it's not the end of the world. Get it in perspective, people!

It is in perspective.

Lenovo made the specs worse but kept the price the same and pulled the wool over the eyes of unsuspecting buyers who assume newer is better (which it generally does). They even list it as having an APQ8009 rather than it's actual name, which is a Snapdragon 212 - even budget phones with Mediatek chipsets have more performance than this. Yes, the tablet will probably be 'ok' but that doesn't mean you should buy one without shopping around. And usually people buy branded (e.g. Lenovo) because of better support, but in this case, they don't really offer support once you've bought it.
