Lenovo TAB 2 A8 is an interesting Android device, including an extremely powerful 64-bits Quad-Core processing unit speeding at 1300 MHz, a quite big 8" multi touch screen, a 5 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2 MP front facing camera.

Lenovo decided to power this tablet with a high performance 64-bit Quad-Core CPU running at 1300 megahertz, included in the MediaTek MT8161 system chip and only 1 GB of RAM which is a little low for a tablet this good. Collaborating with graphic intensive games and applications, this device also counts with a 416 megahertz ARM Mali-T760 MP2 graphic processing unit. An interesting feature of the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 is its big 16 GB internal memory and an external memory slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of games and applications without any trouble.

Lenovo sells the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 in three colors: pink, blue and white. While this tablet just has 8.27" long, it manages to contain a 8 inches display. This tablet is just 0.35 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest tablet's category. This tablet feels a bit heavy comparing to other tablets , weighting 11.64 ounces.

The Lenovo TAB 2 A8 is equipped with two cameras, a 5 MP back camera and a 2 megapixels front camera. To complete the camera, it also counts with geo tagging and auto-focus.

Lenovo equipped the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 with an average 8-inches display, and a 1280 x 800 resolution, which makes all pictures and videos look good. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The Lenovo TAB 2 A8 counts with a 4200 mAh amazing Li-Ion non-replaceable battery that provides the Lenovo TAB 2 A8 an impressive battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery is not replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to live shorter, while having 4200 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before that happens.

The Lenovo TAB 2 A8 provides wi-fi connection (although it can't share it with other devices around, acting as a hotspot), LTE 4G high performance connectivity or the fastest 3G connectivity, over HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This tablet supports dual sim cards so it's able to use 2 different phone numbers and even different carriers at the same time.

This tablet also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth devices, computers and accessories), GPS and NFC, and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

This tablet is a little outdated tablet and it's priced about 259 dollars, similar to other same level tablets. No matter whether you want this tablet majorly for internet broswing and social networks, will use this device for playing games or need a tablet for work, you will probably love this tablet.
