Lenovo Tab A7-50 is a mid level Android tablet launched back in 2014, provisioned with a quite big 7" multi-touch screen, a great performance Quad-Core CPU running at 1.3 gigahertz, a 5 MP back side camera and a 2 megapixels front camera. But let's get into more details.

Lenovo appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 11.29 oz tablet. This tablet is only for sale in blue color. Being just 0.39 inches thick,this tablet is incredibly slim and comfortable.

This tablet includes a interesting 7 inches screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution, making everything look very good. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

Lenovo decided to design this tablet using a good performance Quad-Core CPU clocking at 1300 megahertz, bundled in the MediaTek MT8121 system chip with 1 GB of RAM memory. Graphic rendering usually eats lots of CPU time, so it has an extra PowerVR SGX544 GPU clocking at 384 MHz to help the processor with those tasks. This device comes with an interesting 16 GB internal memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, which allows the user to store a couple hundred games and apps without any trouble.

This device counts with wi-fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (HSPA+) data connection, that is not as fast as LTE-A or LTE 4G networks or the fastest 3G connectivity, using HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The Lenovo Tab A7-50 uses a SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This tablet has two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 MP front camera.

The Lenovo Tab A7-50 also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Localization and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

The Lenovo Tab A7-50 has an incredible 3450 mAh Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this tablet running for many hours without charging it. An issue to take into consideration is that this tablet's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins losing capacity, although with such a great capacity you will probably replace this device before that becomes a real problem.

This device is a mid-to-low level tablet and it is priced about $ 155, which is quite close to other same level tablets.
