The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 review is here, which gives you great built accompanied by great quality as well. The device comes with a kickstand that is helpful for adjusting it according to your needs like surfing, reading, etc. In simple words, the device can change its ‘avatar’ the way you wish and feel comfortable. As it is flexible and has multiple body forms, the company has aptly titled it ‘Yoga’.
Though it is the ‘Yoga’ so to say from its physical form, how much does it have to prove it one of the best in the market? We will have a look at the pros and cons of the Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 to find out more.
Ok, let’s start with the build and design. The gadget is built for multiple uses for comfortable use as mentioned above. The previous Yoga tabs also had kickstands similar to this one. Plastic and aluminium are the two ingredients of the built of the tablet. As you can hold and adjust the tab as per your comfort zone, the portrait mode makes, especially the reading the easiest part of all.
The downside is of course, the weight. As this is a tablet, and not a Smartphone, it will understandably be a tad heavier. So, holding the device in the hand for longer reading sessions – in any sort of mode – will not last longer. Or what you can do is, rest it in landscape mode on the stand.
The landscape mode is certainly easier to use as the position of the buttons is pretty straightforward. As you charge the Lenovo tab, the power button, to the left, blinks softly. The headphone jack sits to the right border. These are some of the pros and cons of the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 review.
The Lenovo tab comes with a Full HD 10.1 inch screen. However, the resolution does not seem to do justice to this. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S may be better off, as far as the display is concerned. The images show pixels at the borders when they are zoomed. And due to this reason, the colors aren’t reproduced sufficiently either.
According to the Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 review, even the Full HD display may not show satisfactory results for viewing images or video. So, does it mean the Lenovo tab is a no-no for entertainment? Well, yes if you want crystal clear viewing.
As most Smartphones and tablets these days the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 also has two cameras – 8MP rear camera and 1.6MP front camera. And yes, they are pretty moderate, so to say. Agreed that this Lenovo tablet has an 8MP rear camera, may be better than other tabs. However, more megapixels do not translate in sharper images. The image quality is still average for the device.
With the rear camera, you can video record in Full HD, while with the front camera it is 720p. You can fiddle with brightness, contrast and saturation. So, the basic features do exist.
As buttons are placed very intuitively, the same regulation doesn’t look to be followed for the cameras. If you hold the device in landscape mode, you will find that the primary camera is to the converse edge, while the secondary camera is to the left. Now here is one major drawback. If you hold the device in landscape mode and switch the camera on, the gadget asks you to switch over to portrait mode.
Now, in portrait mode, it becomes a bit ill at ease to take close-ups with this mode. And in the landscape mode, video calling with the front camera is awkward.
The Intel Atom Z3745 chipset along with a 1.86 GHz quad-core processor powers the Lenovo Yoga tablet 2. The OS in the device is the Android 4.4.2 KitKat. However, it profoundly depends on its own UI.
The internal storage is 16GB that can be pushed up to 64 GB with an extra memory card. The popular apps like Twitter and Facebook are in-built along with some from the house of Lenovo. However, you will be able to delete some in-built apps too. After this, you will get in excess of 10GB of free space.
A multitasking facet of the device allows you opening multiple windows as well as multiple apps. A small window appears to the bottom right corner of the screen. You can select what you want to from this window.
SYNCit – the cloud app from Lenovo is also packed in the device software for unlimited storage. You can also use SHAREit, for sending documents and media between devices that makes use of Bluetooth.
The Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 has a healthy 6,400mAh battery. The huge battery also requires considerable time to charge – around three hours. However, this is still fast charging with the charger the company supplies, which is the 2A charger. But unfortunately, if you happen to lose this piece, you will need almost nine hours to fully charge the tablet with other chargers.
There is decent battery life, which shows from the Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 review. Even with HD videos playing, the battery gave a back up of more than 8.5 hours.
The price of the Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 is Rs. 28,990. This instantly reminds us of other two gadgets in the same price range – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and the Apple iPad Air with 16GB Wi-Fi. It weighs around 620 grams. This is certainly and easily more than average of 200 grams extra than other tabs, which makes it carrying around a tad difficult.
The Samsung and Apple devices mentioned above are also in the competition. And Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 review tells you need better picture quality on HD then you can easily look for other options.
