Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8
4 October 2014
Summary: Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 8 is great to hold, thanks to its cylindrical bulge, and the built-in stand is great for viewing media and making video calls. But its performance just isn't up to scratch and doesn't match its stylish looks. If you're after a tablet with a monster battery life but not much else, you might make do with the Yoga Tablet 8. But at £199, we're hard-pressed to recommend it over this year's Nexus 7.
Summary: We were thoroughly impressed with the Yoga 8. This tablet is very unique and is fast, beautiful, easy to use and got some attention when we used it. The battery lasts for a very long time and the multimode feature allowed us to turn it or hold it with instant screen adjustment while the stand firmly held in place.
Pros: Multimode Design:, Simple To Operate:, Keeps On Going:, Display & Sound:, For Work & Play:, You Can Afford It:
Conclusion: It’s not the most grandiose thing, nor is it specs heavy either, but despite that, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 has a wonderful mixture that easily appeases consumers who want something decent to use on the road – and without spending a fortune! Blessed with a retail price point of $249.99, it easily undercuts many of its rivals in the affordable Android tablet space. Heck, it even gives the Google Nexus 7 a good run for its money.
Pros: Very affordable, Long-lasting battery life, Interesting design, solid construction
Cons: Hardware is not first-class, Disorganized homescreen layout, Poor camera performance
Summary: Stamina and stability. Both are quite the virtues of the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8, thanks to its large 6000 mAh battery and the integrated kickstand. But what about the rest of its ingredients? While both the bright 8-inch IPS display and the unusual shape make for great eye-catchers, we will have to see whether the MediaTek MT8389 SoC with 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage space suffice to remain competitive in the price segment below 300 Euros (~$412).
Pros: Battery Life, Integrated kickstand, Bright, high-contrast screen, Stereo speakers located at the front, The innovative and adaptable kickstand. The way its sound output adapts to the orientation of the device. The great ergonomics even in hand-held mode, thanks to its battery bulge.
Cons: Performance, Too plasticky, Mediocre GPS signal strength, Unspectacular resolution, An HDMI (out) port. Better chassis stability.
Excerpt: The Lenovo Yoga 8 tablet tries to compete with the huge market of Google Android-powered tablets and it does an overall decent job. It does have some downsides though, like sub-par performance and a lower-resolution display, but we did like the aluminum design.
Pros: Aluminum design with kickstand, Wide viewing angles, Good battery life
Conclusion: A rather ironic thing I found with the Yoga Tablet is that its brand ambassador is Ashton Kutcher, the man who recently portrayed Apple’s Steve Jobs. I’ve yet to really figure out why Kutcher is behind the Yoga Tablet, but I’m going to chalk it down to Lenovo wanting the Yoga Tablet to appeal to a younger business audience. Having said that, the Yoga Tablet certainly does have an appealing design that sets it apart from almost every other tablet on the market.
