I have really spent a lot of my time to research about iPad 2 vs Lepan 2.
I decided to choose Le Pan II, because I’m impressed with the product’s price which is almost half of iPad 2’s. (Got it at $229)
Having used this Lepan 2 tablet for a few weeks to experiment with, now I am in fact more pleased as compared to back when I first bought it.
The following are are my personal impression about LePan II version so far.
Lepan 2 Specs, Cons and Pros
*Rear camera- although this does have HDMI, Bluetooth and a USB connection, it does not include rear camera which really not a big problem to me, as to take some pictures, I own a digital camera, however, it has a 2MP front-facing camera.
*Learning curve – For anyone who never had an android tablet before, you will definitely have a learning curve with the OS than the iOS (iPad’s OS). It is very interesting to find new stuff, but I don’t recommend this Le Pan II 9.7-Inch Tablet (Black) to elder people.
The most amazing feature of this tab is the great battery life, I could get approx. 7-8 hours battery life while browsing Internet and play my games.
Even Android Operating System version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) source code was released on 14th November 2011, I haven’t tried to upgrade the OS.
This Le Pan II 9.7-Inch Tablet (Black) came with Android 3.2.1, it is fast, does feel as fast as the iPad 2 to me. I am sure after the 4.0 OS update it will be really fast. Honeycomb 3.2.1 has more fluid user interface, and feels sliding between screens have a lot better frame rate.
Honeycomb 3.2.1 includes a release of the exceptionally acclaimed Chrome Web browser also it features real “tabbed” browsing experience, supporting HTML 5 and FLash Player. Generally, Websites on the desktop just work with Honeycomb devices and in many cases Youtube is definitely the real deal via the internet browser.
In terms of appearance, I’d definitely say the Lepan 2 feels really well built. It is solid. The aluminum black chassis is nice and the sound quality is pretty great for a tablet device.
The screen is incredibly responsive and bright with good resolution and viewing angles. For browsing the Internet, I prefer its aspect ratio which is 4:3 aspect ration device to 16:9 aspect ration devices.
Lepan 2 Performance
It features a 1.2GHz dual core snapdragon as opposed to single core CPU, and this you will really notice when you play a lot with intense android games and watching videos. Playing videos work well with no lagging or stuttering issues, one of the great thing with this LePan II is the IPS screen and good 1024×768 screen resolution.
Furthermore, you will find built-in GPS in this device, haven’t really tried it, but obviously I have a GPS device using google map.
If you need a device with flexibility, IPS capacitive screen, robust wifi connectivity, and an option to upgrade the OS to ICS Android 4.0, buy a Lepan 2, especially at around $250.
