Best value basic tab at the moment
We carefully compared dall thats on offer and there are less decent Android tablets than I thought. Lots of junk models out there, but this one is the cheapest available that's still a reasonably competent machine from a known brand. Its only around $100 and is actually pretty decent. Not the fastest ever but good screen and battery life. The ROM is basic android. Overall - good and very good value
Cheap and good!
I bought this tablet for my son to download kids apps and play. This is the second Lenovo tablet I have as I previously bought another model for my other son. They are great value for money. The cheapest tablet I found and it does the job. Most importantly it's a good brand, so compared to other tablets with the same price tag with no brand, I definitely prefer this one
Fantastic fast small tablet with excellent graphics and sound
As per usual Lenovo comes up with the great value tablets packed with great features and very little bloatware. We already own the tab4 10 and the Tab 7 is just as efficient. Battery life is great for a tablet that size. Would definitely recommend for those on a budget.
Has been thoroughly used and enjoyed!
I got this for my wife after I broke the screen on her previous one (by sitting on it). She mostly used it for eBooks at first and then Netflix once we got that. Its definitely no powerhouse - it can be slow to resolve pages but it has a surprisingly bright and pleasant screen and good battery life. I am not sure I would buy this new now as its getting a bit old but we have had a very good use from it.
Basic tablet does the job
This is not a high end tablet by any means. It has limited functionality due to low RAM (1GB) and a weak processor. It does however have a good IPS screen so thats its best advantage. It makes a decent movie viewer but a poor and frustration performer for web browsing. We still use ours but less and less these days. Battery life is quite good. A mixed bag!

Great Value for Money
I purchased this this Lenovo Tablet for my dad and I must say its quite nice and represents great value for money.
It has excellent display, style, camera and all the functions of high end tablets. It supports expandable Memory card and built with latest design and is light weight yet fits perfectly in your hand.
If you are after simple and want latest technology will definitely recommend this.
Good Movie Viewer
This tablet is cheap and it has good and bad points. First the screen is actually quite good. It is a lot better than those on other cheap tablets and my eyes dont tire too much watching movies on it. The battery life is also good - I can get multiple days out of it. And that bad.... the browser is slow as anything. I put this down to dated processor and limited RAM. Its good for watching movies and even Netflix though.

Great for kids
We purchased this tablet for our 2 year old daughter so she can watch her favourite cartoons on the go. I tried to choose between the Lenovo and some other cheap tablets. It was a good deal - only $97 at Officeworks. I wanted something that can be easily thrown in the trash if the kid break it. Lenovo is a good and reliable brand. It's built on Android 7. The tablet works perfectly. The hard drive space is 16 GB, that is enough to download our videos, movies and install different apps. It has a SD-card slot up to 128GB. The memory is 1 GB, it i...s fast enough to watch YouTube Kids or play apps. The battery lasts about 7 hours. It takes for about 4 hours to recharge the device. The tablet is very slim and light, but durable. It has been thrown a few times by our girl and still working great. The screen resolution is 1024x600, very bright and clear colors. The browser works slow, but we don't use it. I would definitely recommend this tablet as a budget kids' tablet.
Good Value Not Super Powerful
We have had this for over a year as a general house tablet. The screen is nice and way better than you would expect for a cheapie. Inside it has 16GB of storage but you can add an SD card. We have it loaded up with movies for holidays. You can use it for browsing too but its not the most powerful beast ever made. Its a good value tablet
Wife Uses It Daily
I bought this for the wife as a bit of fun as she was always borrowing mine. She didn't use it much as first but these days seem to have her nose in it all the time. She does emails, Facebook and watches Netflix and Youtube on it. It has a good screen, good battery wifi and good wifi. I would know if there were any problems because she would whinge about it and she never does. Good value!
Great Coffee Table Browser
We originally got this for the plane but it lives on the coffee table now for TV browsing and Netflix choosing. It is more capable than the price ($97) would suggest. It has a nice IPS screen and good battery life - like days before recharges. Its a bit fiddly typing on the on screen keyboard but thats OK. It is quite strong and has survived being dropped many times. I feel this is good value for money and am happy with it.
OK Little Dated Now
This was outstanding value when I got it. It has a really impressive screen for a budget tablet and is fine to look at for longish preriods, way better than its sub $100 price would suggest but the internals are a little limited and I was feeling it lag badly last time I used it. It only has 1 GB of ram and I think that is the problem. A lot of sites these days need more than that to load properly so I am giving this a middle score. I wouldn't buy it new now but it was excellent a year ago.
Good Simple Tablet
We have used this heap a ton since we got it. It was only $98 and we have had far more than that in value from it already. It is a very honest version of Android without any bloat or ugly skins. The screen is IPS which is good because that often where they cheap out with budget equipment. So it has good colours and viewing angles. Battery life is good and its been dropped heaps of times without breaking so I think its pretty strong. For the money, this is very good value.
Great Value Tablet
This thing is great for $97. I originally bought it just to show older relatives digital photos but started using it more generally. Its no Samsung Galaxy but its a pretty capable little tablet and you can definitely use it to watch Youtubes or generally browse. It can slow down a little with some content heavy site but it always gets there. battery life is excellent and its quite strongly made. I definitely recommend this model.
Value for money product
I liked this product as i use it usually for my kid. I don't have to worry about breakage as its body built with strong frame and really cheap in case i have to buy new one. Its far better to buy new one instead of buying really expensive tab for kids.
Ok For Movies
This is not the most premium tablet made. It's cheap and so browsing can be a little slow sometimes. The screen is bright but not the highest of resolutions. Two things are good though. Battery life seems exceptional and if you load up movies on it, it makes a good viewer for long airplane flights as its so small to pack. I would not want to use this at work because of the lag but for a media viewer on holidays is good.
You have to purchase a lenenov tab7 essential great product it is a great size just put it in your bag take with you wherever you go either on holidays take an abundance of photos store on your tab to view and reminence with family, friends social media whatevr you enjoy listen to your own type of music watch the new release movies whatever you choose etc great to have at your fingertips
Ok for lids
It takes a while to turn on but it does most of what you want. The photo quality is terrible though but less pictures means more apps. My kids have one each. I hate that the back cover doesnt come off to remove battery. One childs tablet got wet and shortened out because i couldnt cut power on it!

Definite lag on screen and light coming through one corner of screen
My wife bought this for our son to use for some basic website stuff and to do his reading eggs program on. Its good for the price (we paid $97 at Office works) if you want it for standard usage, however right from the beginning we have found there is significant lag/delay when typing or web browsing. Sometimes we have to press something twice for it to be recognised. Its so annoying!
We were going to get another one for my daughter, but will probably explore other tablets before buying a Lenovo again.
Edited comment: our one week old tabl...et now has light coming through the screen in one corner when the screen is dark. Its frustratingly slow too. I really think this is a piece of junk and am considering trying to return it to Officeworks.
