Disappointing tablet, even for the price
The tablet is slow, especially in the first 20-30 minutes after starting up. It struggles with mid-level games and multitasking, running hot and lagging. The battery life is average for a tablet of this size and price range. Due to the larger screen size compared to a phone, battery would be expected to run down fairly rapidly. Unfortunately, it is also rather slow-charging.
Perfect size for your bag
The Lenovo tablet line is a budget point but the small 7 Inch screen is great for reading online books,the screen is bigger than most smart phones. Wireless setup is fast and speed is acceptable. Not as lagging as cheaper offerings. I've had mine for about 2 years and for portability when traveling it is my go-to device.
Offerings are still available on clearance in some stores or online. Memory is expandable.
great tablet for under $100!
I had compared the Lenovo side by side with a samsung tablet that cost 2 1/2 times the price. The Lenovo's colours if anything were better and the speed (again using same internet connection) was equal. The size is great to carry around and perfect for travelling to get online. As it is only a 7 inch it of course is not as easy typing and won't be good for any lengthy film viewing but for the size and price tradeoff, it works great.
Battery doesnt charge anymore
Used it only for 11 months , cannot charge it anymore , the product was mainly used for my daughter to watch cartoon etc, when we traveled..
item is good , but it doesnt charge anymore, we paid $97, value for money .but need to know how we can change the battery
Good tablet for its price
Good tablet for its price considering it's a lot cheaper than an iPad; does what you would expect a tablet would normally do. It's easy to operate. Thin and light. We bought it for our school age son as Christmas present and he loved it. He uses it for games, YouTube, music, etc. only downside is we found it difficult to find a original Lenovo cover for it. The ones available at shops are mostly for iPad nowadays. We properly should try get a general cover that would suit the tablet properly.
worked well while it lasted
Had this tablet for 12 months and worked well. Watching movies, surfing the net. Facebook, email etc etc. Then all of a sudden it didn't start to charge correctly. Charged for 7 hours for only 17% charge. A bit disappointing. Will have to dispose of it very soon. Because no battery = no use.
could not play games
i couldn't get any of the games from Google Play as it wasn't compatible for some reason. I use Android tablets it to play Hay Day, Simpsons Tapped Out, Family Guy the Quest for Stuff etc, and none of those would load from Google Play on this model. Apart from that it was pretty good, if you just want it for email, websites, video, music etc but not games then it is a well functioning model with a good display in comparison to other cheapo tablets on the market.
BOUGHT OVER A YEAR AGO AND STILL GOING STRONG
I bought this Lenovo A7-10 purely because I got tired off switching on the desktop at night if I wanted too check my emails and also do online surveys which I do regularly.
I have used it regularly over the time I've owned it but not daily and found battery life is good but it does take a while too recharge if the battery is really low, don't know if it is the fact I use a generic recharge product or just the fact that's the way the tablet is normally.
I have streamed TV shows live on it if I want too watch 2 shows using my TV as well as the...

Fantastic Value for Money
The Lenovo Tab 2 A7 is my first tablet and so far after a week's ownership I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase. My decision to buy it was made chiefly because of its suspiciously cheap price of $99. It is so easy to judge electronics based on their price and country of origin (Lenovo is a Chinese brand, but one of the few that are privately owned) but the fact is that even as quality and performance increases, prices tend to decrease. I have seen display models of the Tab 2 A7 in stores before, but never thought much of them until I starte...d shopping for a tablet. Ideally I would have bought a Samsung but the cheapest model, the Tab 3 Lite, was too expensive even though it *only* costs $177. Research also revealed the surprising fact that the Lenovo and the Samsung have essentially identical specs. Both have a 1024x600 pixel seven inch screen, both have a 1.3 GHz quad core processor, both have 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of memory, and both use the popular Android operating system. The difference is that the Lenovo is both cheaper and newer than the Samsung. The Tab 2 A7 is a delight to use. I find it smooth and responsive. Not to the same degree as a Samsung smartphone, but close. The Android operating system installed on it is "plain", with only a basic range of aps and no "bloatware" to hog the hard drive or processsor. Setting it up was simplicity in itself. Set the clock, language, and log into Google and wi-fi. After that I downloading the mobile version of my antivirus software and installed Firefox and signed into Firefox Sync. From unboxing to viewing my favourite websites in about fifteen minutes! I spent the first twelve hours with the device pushing it, seeing what it can do. I am not a gamer. I like to jokingly call myself an "extremely casual gamer" because my interest in videogames comes and goes. What I do do, however, is browse with between 3 and 20 tabs open on a regular basis. So I tried filling the browser with a webcomic, two 300 kB images, one paused YouTube video and one playing. The tablet handled it with no complaints and didn't slow at all. On the subject of videos, the Tab 2 A7 does not have a high definition display but it will play high definition videos fairly well. The sound is pretty good, too. One thing, though, the speaker has three settings; Quiet, Loud, and Loudest. Seriously. I have the volume down near mute most of the time and it is still loud enough to hear audio in videos. And the keyboard is by default as noisy a typewriter, but thankfully you can turn it down. After satisfying myself that the tablet could handle as many active browser tabs as one could reasonably expect of a small, low performance computer I tried running something I know is hardware intensive, Google Earth. The Lenovo runs Google Earth well. It even runs street view without complaint, though this is one of the few places you will notice the low resolution of the screen. Just think of it a retro experience and be grateful the 1990's were a long time ago. :P As well as testing the performance of the machine, I also spent time testing the battery and charger. With the screen on full brightness and the browser and gallery open I was able to get 3 hours and 46 minutes out of the battery - close to Lenovo's claimed 4 hours. I also ran Google Earth during this time (on and off, for variety) and this included a half hour virtual stroll around Knott's Berry Farm in the United States. If you are just using the device occasionally throughout the day battery life naturally increases. The tablet is not a fast charger, alas. Allow for at least two hours to charge from 55% to 100%. An interesting feature of the Lenovo is that the micro USB charger port is at the top of the device which in theory means that the cord stays out of your way. I say in theory because it doesn't actually matter which end of the tablet you hold - the screen rotates to fit all four sides AND the three menu buttons are virtual. It's one of the coollest things about the Lenovo. The Lenovo Tab 2 A7 is a fantastic little machine. It's proletarian. Anyone can buy it and it should satisfy anyone who needs a good tablet for web browsing, watching videos on YouTube, light gaming, or keeping phone numbers and appointments. There are better quality machines and machines with more horsepower and bigger screens. But for a hundred bucks you can't go wrong with the Lenovo.

Had trouble from the beginning
I bought this lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 back in Dec 2015 and from the start it rarely worked smoothly just liked to turn off and on by itself and wasn't responsive to light touch. Sent it for repairs but come back with the same problem. The screen was the only good part of my experience also sound was maybe just above average and the processor a little slow to load things. I've also got an 8 inch tablet from lenovo rebranded lifetab from ALDI which has been very good but this one was a lemon.
Excellent, low-cost device
Originally I purchased the Tab 2 solely for using while on the go, but it has become an integral part of my at-home life too. I use it for reading books, browsing the web, and it is usually what I set my wake-up alarm on for the mornings. The screen is very low pixel density, but for 99 dollars it is a great device.
It can be quite laggy, but that is another thing you sacrifice for a cheaper piece of tech. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase this tablet, and I've already recommended it to a few people. I love that it has a microSD slot..., and it's small enough to be great for slipping into a bag without taking up much room at all. Battery life is much better than I expected, and it has everything that I need for the niche it fills. Really great little tablet.
Good cheap 7 inch tablet
I pick up this tablet for $97 from Officeworks to replace an older much more expensive Samsung. So far proved great for email, web browsing & music streaming. Haven't tried the cameras (this model has front and rear) but I've never used a tablet much for photos so if doesn't matter.
For the price don't expect high end specs but for me using it to check emails while sitting on the couch with IHeart Radio streaming to my Bluetooth speakers it hits the spot.
I'd recommend it it that's what you want a tablet for.
For $99 it is worth the five stars.
For such a low price this is a surprisingly good tablet. Not the fastest, but fast enough for web browsing, emails, and even watching videos etc.
The battery life is average but still much better than the three other sub $100 tablets I tried before it. WiFi can be a bit slow but still OK.
Screen is pretty good too.
If you can get the KitKat 4.4.2 version stick with it unless you really need 5.0.2 as the battery life seems to take a noticeable hit (about an hour less with my usage patterns).
Only a very low resolution front camera is included.
Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 -- AvGreat 10 inch Android Tablet at a Great Price
Today I bought a Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 10 inch screen Android Tablet from Harvey Norman. It cost me $308 (RRP $327) and was the best price/performance 10inch Android tablet they had on display in my budget.
The main feature of the Lenovo is the beautifully clear and crisp 1920 x 1200 pixel screen. Most others in this price range feature around 1200 x 800 pixels or so. It doesn't seem a great difference numerically, but visually the sharper, crisper images are immediately apparent.
Secondly, the A10-70 comes with 2GB RAM which is double tha...t of most competitors for the price. As Tablet processor memory is shared with the video system 1GB only leaves about 600-700MB left for data once Android and video systems are running. So an extra 1GB provides some much needed extra head-room. This is especially apparent on the Internet as web pages load very snappily indeed. Storage is limited to 16GB onboard, but you can load a micro-SD memory card of up to 64GB for external, removable storage. I like that Lenovo has not loaded any unnecessary additional crud-ware software to chew up the limited storage. There is an FM radio and Dolby Equalizer which I really like. The A10-70 isn't the lightest but not have I found it too heavy. And it seems very well constructed and quite robust. I will buy a padded folder for it soon though as additional insurance against scratches and mishandling. Overall I'm quite impressed with my purchase.

Great value tablet for under $100
We bought this to serve as a remote control for our media centre and chromecast. The last sub-$100 tablet I bought for this purpose was absolutely useless, but the A7-10 surprised me. Very responsive touch screen and apps run quickly. No issues setting it up. Android's "restricted accounts" means only the apps to run the entertainment are available - the kids can't use it for anything other than a remote.
No, its not an iPad or Galaxy, but certainly punches above its weight at the price point.
Excellent Starter Tablet
Very powerful tablet despite its miniscule size. Had issues with setting up WIFI so if you're not tech savvy I wouldn't recommend it, though it could have been a single item issue. Bought it as a basic tablet for my son and its much better than the kids' tablets which do not have the same powerful processor as this one.
Questions & Answers
device: Lenovo Tab 2 A7
years old: 1/2
problem: when the tablet is at like 20% i will go to charge it then i wait for maybe like 30 mins when i come back it will be at 10% so basically whenever i charge the tablet it will say its charging but the battery percentage wont go up it will go down and the tablet is plugged all the way into the wall i have purchased a new cord and new charging cube but the tablet still wont charge i have tried a different outlet and the tablet still has the same problem. the charging port will have some problems too. when i put it on the charger i will leave it charging like all day and it will only get up too 25% then it will start decreasing.
can someone please help me figure out this problem?
The memory manager for the battery may be sensing the battery is old or discharged to many times and thus not charging properly. If you can't source a replacement battery it may mean time for a new unit.
I have had nothing but trouble drops out all the time takes forever to load is there any way to improve the performance?
Best way is to do a back up of any important items then do a full factory reset. If it is a problem with wifi connection in parts of your home then try a range extender. Also run speed test on your wifi service and speak to your provider if it is slow.
You could also try downloading a clean up app that cleans up and can remove little used apps.
Also depending on the age it could need a battery replacement. Some mobile battery sellers may offer this service.
It is only 2 months old and our computer works fine though l will try some of your suggested changes
what battery percentage should it be on before I factory data reset it?
