Lenovo Tab 2 - Tesco Refurb - 10" 1080p display - Dolby Sound - 2GB RAM + Micro SD

Found 22nd AprEdited by:"jameshothothot"
I got this for my dad for Christmas before last as a replacement for his Nexus 10 which was dying. He was looking to spend several hundred pounds on a pixel but he uses his tablet for media consumption and with a 1080p display and SD card slot this is perfect.

I recently got it for my son too and enjoed testing out the dolby surround sound - though it seems to have more features on headphones than bluetooth so far - but Dolby seems to be an exclusive feature for Lenovo and Amazon tablets. After googling it I found you can hack it for other phones/tablets ... but you need to root and flash them unless you just want to use it for google play music when you can just install an APK. Anyhow - it sounded awesome listening to music at work when I usually use my LG G5 phone.

The battery life is very good.

2GB ram was also key for me for multi tasking.This model has 16gb storage but you can put a memory card in and android has been updated to version 6 Marshmallow - so ignore blurb about 4.4 Kitkat

Antutu score of 42,000 means it's a decent mid range machine -equivalent to Samsung S5.

It runs Minecraft!

Couple of reviews - wanted to share this deal as I recently bought one from ebay (not from Tesco so a lot cheaper) but though others might appreciate the 12-month warranty

4 left at time of writing!

PS - be careful - the Tab 3 / Tab 4 have weaker processors and less memory. They went more value orientated in the range after this. Hence I stuck to the older Tab 2.

PPS there is also an A10-30 range which is inferior - only has 720p display - this is the A10-70 with 1080p display - again check the specs

Ha ! We seem to check each other's posts!
These are so good when the wife's one broke there was nothing any better at a reasonable price (Tab4 plus is waaaaaaaay too expensive) I bought a refurb for £65 from ebay.

Brilliant screen, good processor & plenty of RAM.

I don't have any keywords saved - but you got me this morning with the combination of Chinese mid range phone and Amazon!
Im looking for a budget 10" Android Tablet. My partner has just had the Acer Iconia 10 for £119 in Argos, that looks a decent tablet.
How does this compare to the Amazon fire 10?
I have 1 of these. It's fab. Had no trouble

best to check this;http://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/amazon-fire-hd-10


I've checked that article out. Generally speaking unless you're a heavey Amazon user then there are cheaper alternatives, maybe this?

I'm a prime subscriber but don't particularly want to be tied down to Amazon. The article also doesn't mention side loading etc, so I don't know how functional it would be in that respect?

I'm going off the heat rating. This still less than 100, the Amazon fire 10, nearly 900!
Anyone know if like a Samsung phone these can mirror to a tv with something similar to smart view

I got one for £69 inc postage for a buy it now. Genuine seller with lots of pics and it is perfect condition and battery life. Think say one for 75 quid maybe plus postage last time I checked that was private seller.
There are some others eg this

rover.ebay.com/rov…117

There are a couple of cheaper ones but one has wrong description and says 720p so would have to contact them to see if they have posted wrong description or wrong device name. Another was a bit cheaper too but this seemed a genuine private seller so you have more pics to examine device

Nope but my dad found that mirroring the display to his tv worked fine for cricket from star sports India app (via vpn)
