Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 is a not so powerful tablet released back in the year 2013, having a good size 7 inches touch-screen, a great performance Quad-Core processor clocking at 1200 MHz, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 0.3 MP front-facing camera.

Lenovo decided to build this tablet using a powerful 1200 MHz Quad-Core CPU, bundled in the MediaTek MT8125 system chip with 1 GB of RAM memory. To collaborate with graphic intensive games and apps, it also has a PowerVR SGX544 graphics processing unit working at 384 MHz. An interesting aspect of this device is the 16 GB quite big internal storage memory and a slot for an external memory card, allowing the user to install hundreds of apps and games without any trouble.

Lenovo made the Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 in black and white. While the Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 only has 7.64" long, it manages to contain a 7" display. The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000's thickness (0.43 inches) is a little bit far from nowadays standards, but it still feels fine in the hand. It seems like Lenovo forgot about optimizing the weight in this 11.99 ounces tablet.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 0.3 megapixels front-facing camera. Additionally, the camera includes auto-focus.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 is equipped with a good level 600 x 1024 7-inches display, which makes all photos and movies look quite nice. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 offers wi-fi capability (but it can't share it with other devices acting as a modem or router) or 3G fast internet connection, using HSPA technologies. This tablet doesn't have a SIM card, because it doesn't work with GSM services.

This tablet also features some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Localization and Near Field Communication (NFC), and some sensors likeLight Sensor and Accelerometer.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 comes with a great 3500 mAh Li-Polymer removable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it at all.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 is a decently made tablet that is sold for around $ 120, quite the same as other similar devices.
