Great screen and performance, Tragically Flawed Build Quality
This review is from: lenovo IdeaPad S2110 (2258A1U) Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core APQ8060A(1.50GHz) 10.1" 1GB Memory 16GB eMMC Tablet PC - Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) - Black
Pros: - IPS Screen is excellent - comparable to ASUS Transformer tablets in viewing angle and color reproduction.
Cons: - Poor build quality; the back is cheap flexible plastic. Frame creaks and there is no cushion between the back panel and the LCD. Even a little pressure on the back of the tablet will cause visible ripple effects on the screen when it is on. Very visible in dark pictures/backgrounds and even holding the tablet can cause this.
Other Thoughts: Had three Tegra 3 tablets. All exhibits known quirks with Tegra 3 chipsets such as flickering screen, poor web browsing performance due to the "fifth" application core, etc. Lenovo was so close to making my perfect tablet; IPS screen, non-proprietary USB connector, and the Snapdragon S4 processor. Unfortunately the tablet's build quality dragged it down to oblivion. As soon as I powered up the unit, I noticed the left side of the screen occasionally "rippled" where my fingers were resting on the other side of the tablet. It's understandable in a slim device if the screen ripples by applying pressure on the back of the tablet, but not when it is just resting on your fingers. The plastics creaks a bit when moving it with one hand. Performs like a first class tablet, feels like a $99 cheapo tablet. Returning this tablet and paying the extra $100 for the Galaxy Note 10.1.
