Lenovo Yoga Book Android YB1-X90F Convertible Review

 

Multitalented. Would you like a tablet which is also a graphics tablet? Want a keyboard too? The Lenovo Yoga Book Android offers all this and more. We will check how well the device performs in our in-depth review.

graphics tablet, lots of accessories, innovative input concept, useful Halo keyboard, very flexible, yet sturdy hinges, decent screen, barely heats up, good speakers

Halo keyboard hard-to-read in bright lighting conditions, graphics tablet has some flaws, quiet creaking noises, slightly superfluous software, GPS module is unreliable, only 12 months warranty

The Yoga Book occupies a special place in our hearts and runs well even with Android. In fact, in some areas, it can even outperform the Windows tablet. The design of this device is unique and it is a true joy to see the "watchband" hinges in action....

Lenovo Yoga Book 2016 Windows 64GB LTE Convertible Review

 

Sketchbook for creators. Not satisfied with stylus inputting on a tablet? Lenovo now has the handy solution for all creative minds: Write with ink on paper and work digitally, anyway. The 10-millimeter Book is not an all-rounder, but it can do more...

design and stability, firm hinge, touch keys' good feedback, touchpad very comfortable to use, sketch & write on paper, battery's all-day runtime, bright, high-contrast panel, decent 8 MP camera

few interfaces, no DIN A5 paper size, sluggish eMMC, no maintenance options

Open, take notes, and think creatively: The Yoga Book, in fact, seems like a home run since so many input options in one device and pen inputs via paper was not invented until now.

Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows) Review: Better Than Android

 

The Lenovo Yoga Book is far more than just a competitor to the Microsoft Surface. Is this Windows-based notebook worth more than the lackluster Android version? Read our review to find out.

Beautiful display ; Premium thin and light design ; Excellent writing with Create Pad and Real Pen ; Great battery life

Halo Keyboard doesn't feel great when typing ; Real Pen doesn't offer full functionality on the screen ; Mediocre performance

Lenovo Yoga Book review: Innovative tablet/laptop hybrid with combined virtual keyboard and digitizer

 

Lenovo has a history of taking a sideways look at regular products and bringing new ideas into the market. Take the Yoga Tab 3 Pro with its built-in projector for example.

Excellent build ; Thin and light ; Smart mix of touch keyboard and pen input ; Good battery life ; Available running Windows or Android

Accurate keyboarding requires practice ; Underpowered as a Windows 10 device ; Short on storage and expansion ports

The bottom line: Our quick verdict on the Lenovo Yoga Book

 

The Lenovo Yoga Book, available with either Android or Windows, is a compelling hybrid device -- at least on paper. It ditches a physical keyboard for a touch-sensitive surface that does double duty as a keyboard and digital sketchpad. With the...

Sleek, compact design ; Unique pen-and-paper integration ; Long-lasting battery

Very difficult to type on ; Some software glitches in the Android version ; Middling performance

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The road warrior’s future

 

I've been using Lenovo 's new Yoga Book the last couple of days, and it's hard not to love this ultra-compact, sleek, and versatile tablet with a twist. This isn't what you'd call a one trick pony, but instead a multi-talented 2-in-1 to help you stay...

Beautiful design and build-quality ; Flexibility of a true Wacom digitizer ; Relatively affordable, especially running Android ; Lengthy battery life

CPU prioritizes battery longevity not raw power ; Halo Keyboard likely to frustrate touch typists ; No built-in 4G LTE for the US ; No USB-C

At the end of the day, I’m not ready to give up on my Surface Book and MacBook just yet. There’s plenty the Yoga Book can do, but the limitations of its Atom processor, compact display, and Halo Keyboard mean that – even in Windows 10 form – this...

Lenovo Yoga Book review: the unbearable lightness of computing

 

Awkward. That's the word that comes to mind when I think of all of the 2-in-1 "convertible" laptops that have come to market in recent years, as PC makers try to adapt in a mobile-centric world and...

Super thin and light ; Accessible price ; Futuristic keyboard ; Long battery life

Lack of ports (especially USB-C) ; Intel Atom processor ; Tiny design quirks ; Software needs work

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: For the Doodlers, Scribblers, and Inkers

 

The Lenovo Yoga Book is very different. In a market awash in look-a-likes and copy cats, it's unique and innovative. Is this ink-centered notebook any good?

Amazing design, great hinge ; Create Pad is excellent ; Decent performance

Halo keyboard barely better than on-screen keyboard ; Android not built for ink ; Lenovo Note Saver app too simple to be useful

The Lenovo Yoga Book is intended for serious inkers and digital artists, built around a great idea. Lenovo executes the hardware portion very well, making the Yoga Book one of the most attractive and well-designed devices we’ve ever reviewed. The...

Lenovo Yoga Book review

 

Right out of the gate, the Lenovo Yoga Book gets credit for offering one of the most unusual designs we've ever seen: This superportable two-in-one laptop/tablet hybrid includes a Wacom sketching pad that can instantly transform into a QWERTY keyboard....

This is a very slim, very light hybrid laptop, available in both Windows 10 and Android versions. The backlit touch keyboard vanishes at the touch of a button and the included stylus works well on both the Wacom surface and with an ink tip on actual...

The keyboard isn't suited for more than minimal typing, there's only a single Micro-USB port for accessories and charging, and the Atom processor is slower than mainstream laptops. The hefty pen, extra tips and paper pad are a lot of additional gear to...

Lenovo's slim Yoga Book two-in-one is great with a pen, but its faux keyboard keeps it from being a practical laptop.
