Lenovo Tab2 A10

Just had to stop in to sing the praises of my new tablet (just got it on Friday.) The Tab2 A10 is a 10.1" tablet with 1920x1200 resolution. It's got a quad-core processor (1.7Ghz) and 16GB internal storage. (Thankfully, it has a SD card slot. I'm definitely gonna need that soon.) It's running on 5.01 Lollipop.

You can get a 32GB version directly from Lenovo (in Canada at least, not sure in the US) but I got mine on sale from Best Buy and the extra 16GB internal wasn't worth a $45 premium. (Counting HST. )

I bought the tablet to replace my Asus FHD 10, which I'd recently gotten rid of due to a broken screen & malfunctioning digitizer. So far, it's a massive improvement.

My main reason for the tablet is to read, either PDFs (gaming books & comics) or comic-book apps (Comixology, Marvel Unlimited.) Everything looks fantastic. I'm currently binging on the Walter Simonson Thor run... everything is sharp, clear, I don't need to zoom anywhere. I've downloaded some of my hi-def comics PDF from Humble Bundle, and they look fantastic. Adobe is very responsive even with Battery Saving mode turned on.

I also have Netflix, and as far as I'm concerned Netflix looks great, so I'm sure any other video will look great too.

Anyways, if you're interested in a decent larger tablet at a good price, I highly recommend this one.

Edited to correct the mistakes Moe & Tikker caught.
Edited again because both Tikker & I were wrong, and John F. was right.

Do you mean 6.01 Marshmallow?

Sounds like you have a nice tablet!

The resolution you quote seems off too. I assume you meant 1920x1080

Well, not my finest moment as a poster. Thanks for the catches, folks. Anways Moe, yeah, it's a nice tablet. Perfect for my needs at a price I could actually afford. (Seriously, have you ever looked at the prices for other full HD 10.1" tablets? It's insane!)

Yep. Sigh. I usually manage to be more accurate than this...

Still loving the tablet though.
