Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 Tablet Review

Performance Summary and Final Thoughts

Performance Summary: The Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 is a modest, sturdy tablet that gives off a vibe of dependability. It isn’t flashy, but it is comfortable to use and it’s small and light enough to be a good travel companion. And although the screen doesn’t have the resolution that higher-end tablets offer, it’s plenty bright and has excellent viewing angles.

Likewise, the tablet won’t knock your socks off when it comes to performance (particularly graphics), but it can certainly hold its own versus other Android slates. We didn’t notice any hiccups when navigating the OS, opening programs, and browsing the Web. It handled streaming video just fine, too, and it handled other ordinary tasks, like connecting to our Wi-Fi network, without a glitch.

We like the way the tablet and the Keyboard Dock connect: when they’re together, the combined system really feels like a laptop. The display doesn’t wobble and the keyboard/touch pad work seamlessly on the tablet. And we don’t get the sense that repeated connecting/disconnecting is likely to weaken the connector.

As we mentioned, the FCC label would have been less obtrusive in a different location on the tablet. And, Ice Cream Sandwich isn’t the most recent version of Android – we would have liked to have seen Jelly Bean in actiona. Even so, the IdeaTab S2110 isn’t going to disappoint typical users. We think Lenovo can hit a broad range of consumers with a modest-but-dependable tablet like this.
