Then I accidentally broke my Nexus's display. Repair costs were expensive, which in my country is about as much as it costs to buy a new Nexus already. Obviously it just made no sense to have the screen fixed. I then shopped around for a new tablet and found the Lenovo Tab A7 (A3500-HV) selling for $120. Cheap tablet, and reviews seemed OK, but I'm not exactly riding high right now and I don't want to spend money on a new tablet and I suppose I could live with the Samsung. And so I am using it now.
I admit performance is just bad: the two Cortex A9 cores simply feel too overwhelmed, and the dark horse Vivante graphics isn't pushing pixels anywhere as quickly as my Nexus. The display is awful too. But hey, beggars can't be choosers, can they? Besides, I got it for free and I'm the kind of guy who can appreciate cheaper products even if they aren't very good. Unfortunately, not everyone can get this for $0.00 and appreciate cheap stuff. For the lower price of $120, I think the Lenovo Tab A7 has better specs and functionality (the A3500-HV includes phone call functionality so it's a 'phablet').
