Lenovo IdeaTab S5000
The S5000 is one of the current mid-range models from a major corporation. With a suggested retail price of $275.Measuring just 7.9 mm, the S5000 is one of the slimmest tablets in the market. It weighs in at just 246 grams (0.54 lbs), nearly one-fifth lighter than many of the premium tablets being sold today. Inside this thin and light frame resides plenty of horsepower, starting with a 7-inch1280x800 resolution, 350 nit brightness and full HD wide-viewing angle display to make it easy to share photos and videos with family and friends.A 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek 8389 CPU acts as the brains for the 3G model, and a MediaTek 8125 processor runs the Wi-Fi-only version. Other components include 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB, an accelerometer, GPS, a 5-megapixel back camera, and a 1.6-megapixel front shooter. Lenovo claims up to 8 hours of life with the included 3,200MAh battery,so you should get around eight hours' web browsing out of the device, or six hours' HD video watching. This figure is decent enough, and matches that of most of its rivals. VS Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7in's grey plastic back cover is so smooth it can be hard to hold on to. You'll need a proper stand for hands-free use, since leaning it against something will invariably end in the Tab 2 sliding on to its back.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 delivers a mostly pure Android 4.0 experience for only $250. The tablet also trumps the Kindle Fire in extras by including dual cameras, expandable memory, and TV remote-control functionality.
But, The screen doesn't look as pretty as other PLS displays, and its camera performance is lacking compared with other tablets in the line.
The bottom line: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 offers an excellent value and a full Android 4.0 experience that no other tablet can currently match for the price. Specifications

Weight12.1 oz VS Google Nexus 7 The Google Nexus 7 was, for a long time, the ultimate compact tablet. With an attractive price, great build and speedy software updates direct from Google, it was the pure Android experience many craved so dearly.The Nexus 7 features a sharp screen, a comfortable design, and great battery life at a low starting price.It’s slicker, faster and sleeker than any other 7-inch tablet on the market right now, and only the rear facing camera really lets it down.The battery life is really impressive, and the sheer diversity on offer, be it through the uprated CPU, screen, or GPU, mean that we struggled to put it down at times. Android 4.2 adds some welcome and useful features.
But, Android still needs more tablet-optimized apps, newer games have frame rate issues, and HSPA+ speeds seem particularly location-dependent.
The bottom line: With its excellent design, useful software features, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is the cheapest way to experience the best that the Android OS has to offer. Specifications
