Brice, South Africa. 14 September 2017

Affordable, reliable, good wifi connection. Good value for money. Using for a year, no problems.

Harry, South Africa. 8 January 2017

Great tablet. bought it for my daughter as her first tablet. she is loving it.

Gregory, South Africa. 8 June 2017

A good inexpensive tablet. Serves my purpose perfectly as a tablet for my toddler.

Stefan, South Africa. 7 August 2017

Great little tablet. I use it for reading and on low screen light setting the battery last's many hours while reading. By far best value for money for a entry level tablet.

Mardie, South Africa. 14 November 2016

The screen is very nice and bright. It is light weight, so easy to handle. Download apps very quickly. Very happy with the purchase.

Ray Dylan, South Africa. 28 December 2016

Bought it for my kid as his previous Lenovo tablet broke under warranty. First Tab3 I received I had to send back as the battery lasted less than three hours and this one so far no issues. The only thing to be aware of is the removal of multi user function so I can't limit his activity and have admin rights.

Luke, South Africa. 21 September 2017

Fantastic, affordable tablet! Gets the job done.

vicky, South Africa. 6 September 2017

good basic tablet

Zakarieya, South Africa. 8 February 2017

Very nice tablet. Just got a sdcard to increase space. Battery life is good. Only bad thing is that it doesn't have a magnetic cover lock feature. Otherwise, happy with purchase.

rahgib, South Africa. 22 June 2017

Good value kids love it

Clint, South Africa. 24 July 2017

3.5 stars. Great budget tablet, clear screen and very responsive. Decent battery life and does what it says on the box. My daughter loves it, one negative is lack of covers/accessories.

Amanda, South Africa. 31 December 2016

I've had 3 Lenovo's previously and have been very happy. This one is terrible! The battery life is short, it overheats and has very little space. Very unhappy.

Brian Johan, South Africa. 3 January 2017

Excellent choice, very happy thank you.

Kavarshni, South Africa. 21 February 2017

Easy to use, good battery life

Karyn, South Africa. 19 January 2017

I bought them for my children for Christmas and they love them. I still haven't figured out to load movies and music on to them though - I ended up sending the music from my phone via Bluetooth

Linda, South Africa. 5 July 2017

Thank you, works great, especially for the children's games

khayalethu, South Africa. 18 September 2017

I bought one for my son in May now it has issues with charging, will send back. I bought another for my daughter, had to return it due to text input defect on the screen didn't work well. I received a replacement which had some issues booting-up at first but now seems to be okay. Great screen and good viewing angles, good battery life, fast processor but varying performance from the operating software. It works well when it doesn't have issues. I like it, it's great value for the price.

virginia, South Africa. 16 January 2017

Not a very good buy. It is very slow and the memory very small too. Picture quality not very good. Not very user friendly.

kabir, South Africa. 6 June 2017

arrived with the device set to arabic. when i complained they sent me a youtube link...not happy

Est232, South Africa. 14 June 2017

Good value for money product.

Clive, South Africa. 15 September 2017

Excellent value for money product. Good size, nice features and very clear screen.
Added the universal cover and keyboard and now very easy to use.

Thandiwe, South Africa. 6 June 2017

Best service as always

Bobby, South Africa. 6 December 2016

The product is great, but the battery life is problematic. At first it was working oke but as times went by the battery life started to be short! But operational it's a great product.

Leon, South Africa. 29 November 2016

I am very happy with the product, although I expected 16 GB memory, the device has only 8 GB. Very confusing, for the one Takealot screen on the product description says 8 GB and the next screen 16 GB

Quintin, South Africa. 3 January 2017

Cheap and effective

buks, South Africa. 10 December 2016

great tab. no issues to mention after three weekanof owning it.

Zoey, South Africa. 21 September 2017

They serve the purpose I bought them for and my sons love them. The battery is not that bad either. Space can be a challenge though especially after all the Android updates.

ash, South Africa. 13 May 2017

Ordered this on daily deals. For some reason when I switched it on it was in Arabic. Luckily I know someone who speaks Arabic so will ask them to change the settings. Otherwise good tablet.

Michelle, South Africa. 13 July 2017

This was for my son, he is very happy. Memory upgrade with an sd card, and at 12mb operates better.

Andrew, South Africa. 31 August 2017

Really a great device for the money they're asking ,well done Lenovo and takealot

Ntombikazi, South Africa. 7 December 2016

Thank you. Satisfied with the product itself. I have no complaints.

Alex, South Africa. 28 December 2016

I paid a R150 more for this tablet because I was under the impression it came with LTE. However it has no GSM connection at all. No place to put a SIM card in. Means WhatsApp can't be used on this tablet. It must be my mistake because when I checked on the takealot website now it does say WiFi only. Otherwise the screen is nice and WiFi connectivity works well. Both better than the Intel Tablet which does have 3G (and a cover). Buy this tablet only if you don't need connectivity through a SIM card. I am sorry I bought the Lenovo.

heilie, South Africa. 4 September 2017

As jou tab vir jou n paswoord vra en jy het nie een nie wat moet
het nie een

Siphamandla Hendry, South Africa. 14 September 2017

I am looking forward to buy something else

ntombifuthi, South Africa. 22 March 2017

batanayi, South Africa. 11 July 2017

takes too long to switch on

justin, South Africa. 16 September 2017

Good all round tablet. Value for money. Keeps my girlfriend happy for hours.

Oriel, South Africa. 1 September 2017

I am not sure whether I should provide the review or not as I am a first time buyer and would prefer to do that on my next experience.

Eddie, South Africa. 20 September 2017

Tablet works very well, but it was set up in Arabic which caused an initial problem. I can recommend it to other users.
