Lenovo TAB 2 A8-50F – my first tablet

It has been a while since I first considered getting a tablet but then I got my Samsung Note 3 Neo and decided that having a phablet is more than enough. I had this phone for almost 2 years when suddenly I got a present for my birthday – new Lenovo TAB 2 A8-50F tablet. It is an 8 inch Android tablet with HD IPS display, quad-core processor and an amazing Dolby stereo speakers. And when I say amazing sound I really mean it. This is probably one of the best tablets for multimedia – great picture quality from the IPS screen and sound that exceeds any consumer’s expectations.
