Overall: Lenovo has been moving forward at its own pace launching newer, better products and treating Indian market at par with US market.
I was waiting for a quad core tablet in the affordable range. yes there was nexus 7 but its 3g version was costly .Some local offerings were there but they never felt reliable.
and my wait was over with A3000. I bought this at some 1000 bucks cheaper than the online rate at a local authorised lenovo store. As soon as i started it, it gave a firmware update ota showing the commitment of Lenovo.
I will start with the cons
1. no flash for the 5mp primary camera but IMHO tablets are not meant to be used for photography
2. no screen guard provided in the box
3. resolution of 1024*640 but my eyes can't make much difference compared to full hd 7 inch tablets
4. no headphones provided
5. moderate heating up under heavy usage
now the pros . . .
1. though it has a mediatek processor its quite smooth and supports 1080p video play back
2. dual sim, 3g support, call facility
3. pure user interface, lenovo has not made much changes to the jellybean experience, works seamlessly
4. service centres all over india and 2 years extended warranty
5. antutu benchmarks places the processor just alongwith nexus 7(2012) version but below samsung exynos quadcore
6. 16 gb inbuilt memory more than enough for 5000+ songs or 12 movies
I believe it's price will fall further when the rupee stabilises and right now it is the best value for money tablet in Indian market. Buy now !
