Lenovo Tab A8 Overview
Taking a first look at the Lenovo Tab A8 it has a good overall feel to it. The tablet has the official dimensions of 217 x 136 x 8.95 mm and weighs in at 360 g. The Tab A8 makes us of an 8-inch 1200 x 800 IPS display. Not the highest resolution we have seen for a tablet this size, but it still does look pretty good, although it is not as visible outside. The screen has 10-finger multi-touch input.
On the top right of the tablet you have your front-facing 2-megapixel camera that you can use for Skype calls and of course selfies.
Moving down to the bottom of the tablet there is a single front-facing speaker. I like that the speaker is actually on the front of the device rather than the back like many other tablets. It would have been nice to see a second speaker on the top of the tablet for when you are viewing media in landscape mode.
Flipping the tablet over to the back we can see that Lenovo has gone with Blue rather than the typical black we see on most tablets. Lenovo calls this “Midnight Blue” and it looks pretty good. The back also has a sort of rubberized feel to it, which makes it easier and more comfortable to hold the device.
At the top corner on the back of the tablet is your rear-facing camera. This is a 5-megapixel camera with a fixed focus, actually both camera has a fixed focus.
On the right edge of the tablet is a smaller power button and larger volume rocker switch.
On the opposite (left side) there is a compartment that opens and reveals the microSD card slot. You can add up to 32 GB of microSD storage.
At the top of the tablet there is a microUSB (charging / file transfer) port and headphone jack.
