Lenovo tablets line consists of several different models of not only the diagonal of the screen, but also the additional equipment. So also is the case A8-50 A5500-H, which, although it looks the same as the other models in this product family, has some of their own strengths. How does against the strong competition? We check in this test!

Construction / quality
Reproduction one idea is not bad
Who is familiar with the tablet already A7600 and A3500 A10-70-H and FL, this Lenovo A8-50 A5500-H does not surprise design. Tablet reproduces the solutions known from the larger and smaller counterparts, which in this case is not exactly a bad thing, because the tactics issued with one pick even market leaders – Samsung and Apple. A8-50 is an 8-inch model – dimensions goes beyond a comfortable opportunity to hold the device in one hand, but as you can see, the distribution of keys and position of logo suggests that the manufacturer's intention was to use the tablet in portrait orientation – just as in the case of 7 inch cousins. In this method of operation also facilitate broad side of the screen frame, allowing the free position of the thumb without the risk of touching the display. Tablet seems to be at the light, but the leader in this category, namely Kiano SlimTab 8 weighing 279 grams even him away. [Nggallery id = 844 template = techmaniak] The housing tablet taken mostly of plastic material – of matte and smooth to the touch, but characterized by the softness of the soft, as if the construction was coated with rubber. Unable to overcome streaking and delicate rubs and exposes the dark color becoming dust motes. The front panel almost entirely covered with glass pane. It has a cut-out stereo speakers that are nicely integrated into the whole. The individual keys and connectors are deployed with an idea. On the right edge of the physical buttons we find, suggesting that they should be handled with the right hand – if the tablet so we'll stick, calmly reach for the buttons forefinger. On the left edge is a plug masking SIM and microSD slot, and the top edge is an audio output and a microUSB connector. There were finally two cameras and metering sensor. The quality of workmanship raises some concerns – even though all the elements were apparently together a good fit, not once hear the crackling of plastic when holding the tablet in hands. As you might expect, the device does not have such a rigid housing as models of aluminum. Screen coating also able to bend under more pressure.
The tablet mounted 5-megapixel camera without autofocus and flash, to serve the Photo app get Android. In bright sunlight pictures are vivid colors, but the photographs taken in the scenery with less ambient light have a significant amount of noise, yet often do not have proper focus. Video sample was recorded in Full HD, but uneven aspect ratio may indicate that the recorded material is scaled with a lower resolution.
A little too weak backlight maximum
Tablet has IPS matrix with a diagonal of 8 inches, which works in the popular tablets in this segment resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, which gives overly sharp image – but well enough to be able to safely operate the device. Fonts do not offend the eyes of jagged edges, the pages can be viewed electronically in a vertical orientation of the tablet. IPS matrix correctly reproduces colors and viewing angles are wide.Adjusting the backlight is done in the range of 299 – 12 cd / m 2. The maximum value will not, unfortunately, to comfortably use your tablet on sunny days, because the places we registered the descending below 260 cd / m 2. It is better in the case of the lower threshold – 12 cd / m 2 is a guarantee of a pleasant tablet support, even in total darkness.
3G modem with support for Aero 2 and SMS
The device is mounted front stereo speakers that provide great listening experience. Certain deficiencies in the depths of playing bass compensates certainly sound intensity reaching in our tests 81 dB, but the loud music played amazing tablet tremble – not noted at this no audible distortion sound. [Test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "minus" product_id = "20046"] In a manic test wireless tablet practically lost its connection to the router, when he was on a different floor, and between devices stood in the way of a few walls. Built-in GPS module need a lot of time, because about 5 minutes to find the information about the position of the tablet. In conclusion – there is still much room for improvement in this field.A8-50 characterized by a wide compatibility with accessories OTG. Handled USB flash drive and hard drive with external power supply, provided that these have the FAT32 file system. To drive without their own power supply and such, which is formatted to NTFS-and not, unfortunately, we were able to get access. HUB-y (active and passive) and pointing devices remain fully compatible with the tablet. Although the model was installed 16 GB of memory, we can still find the option to transfer files to a card. 3G will not only connect to the network Aero2, but also send text messages.
Not bad, not bad!
Mounted fell dip well in our tests carried out with backlight reduced to 120 cd / m 2. Registered times not approached the tablet to the market leader in this segment, but nearly 8 hours of surfing the Web using Wi-Fi or over 12 movies are the result of normal. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "video-wifi-off, internet-wifi, internet-3g-wifi communicator, load-ac" product_id = "20046"] The battery will allow for all-day use of the tablet without much worry about the remaining battery power. With more moderate use, charging should be needed more often than every two days.
Performance / functionality
Advantages and disadvantages of MediaTek
Mounted on the tablet system MediaTek 8382 certainly has benefited strongly when testing the battery, but in terms of overall performance falls at most average. 4-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz and GPU Mali-400MP with one gigabyte of RAM ensure adequate liquidity in the basic animation, not very demanding games. When it comes to more complex titles, here also there will be problems if we reduce appropriately detailed graphical detail. Asphalt 8: Airborne running smoothly at medium settings, and Dead Trigger 2 on low.Agents have a satisfying work culture – not stifle web pages opened in the computer version, and operations such as scrolling, zooming in and out takes a satisfactory liquidity accompanying animation.

Right out of the box worked Tablet based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, but since the start of the tests were working on a system upgraded to version 4.4.2 KitKat (benchmarks were done after the upgrade). Lenovo slightly modified the form of the system through a combination of Grid applications from desktops and the addition of several applications, such as Power Manager or Norton Mobile.There is also a toolbar for easy access to certain features. Culture system operation does not raise my objections – not made themselves felt no failures running processes, and crack was fairly well developed.
Summary / evaluation / review
Certainly worth your attention
Lenovo A8-50 A5500-H has its advantages – to them, in particular, include stereo speakers, good performance of the battery, and Android version 4.4.2. The model we tested also has a built-in 3G modem can write text messages, making it easier to keep in touch with the world in every place. The matrix, although not having a resolution higher than the average, well fulfilled when browsing web pages, and the use of IPS-u useful for the wider use of multimedia.That's what attracted tablet down in our rankings, the average performance hardware, specific to the installed system. It is true that the media library is crowded out by the more powerful and efficient chips from Intel. A5500-H is a tablet for those looking for mobile access to the Web, and for those who prefer a book of gaming. In my opinion, the developers created a product actually universal – and for that reason worth a look. [Temperatura2 product_id = "20046"] [inne_propozycje product_id = "20046"]
