Len­ovo Tab 3

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

AN AF­FORD­ABLE 7-INCH TABLET.

AVAIL­ABLE FOR UN­DER $100, the Len­ovo Tab costs less than even the most af­ford­able ded­i­cated e-reader. The tablet has a 7-inch IPS screen, with a de­cent but not ex­cit­ing 1,024 x 600 res­o­lu­tion. Still, in use, it’s rea­son­able sharp, and the back­light­ing is even enough for read­ing that’s easy on the eyes.

The Tab 3 has a 1.3GHz Cor­tex-A53 quad- core CPU, with 1GB of RAM and a larger-than-most 16GB of stor­age. The unit runs An­droid 5.1.1, but is snappy and smooth to use.

The Tab 3 does not have a cel­lu­lar con­nec­tion, but does fea­ture Wi-Fi, Blue­tooth, front and rear cam­eras, a 3.5mm jack and a mi­croSD card slot.

The tablet mea­sures in at 19.1 x 10 x 0.88cm, weighs 260 grams and is clad in fairly tough feel­ing plas­tic. The ef­fi­cient hard­ware com­bined with a 3,450mAh bat­tery put on a good show, and han­dle around 8 hours of video play­back, or over 11 hours of read­ing with the back­light down low.
