Lenovo Miix 2 8 review: A fast tablet that's short on features

 

Aside from its speed and long battery life, little about this 8-inch device sets it apart from its strong competition.

Very thin and light ; Great benchmark performance and battery life ; Touch-sensitive Windows button

Too few I/O ports ; Screen too bright for nighttime reading ; Speakers distort at high volume

Lenovo’s Miix 2 8 delivers great performance and battery life, but these upsides are tempered by a dearth of extra features.

Lenovo Miix 2 8 review

 

Other features include a 2 Mp front camera, 5 Mp rear camera, and a combined headphone/microphone socket. That's the only configuration available here in the UK, although Lenovo is also planning to make 10-inch and 11-inch models that we hope to review...

With its attractive, compact design and sub-£300 price tag the Miix 2 8 is one of the new Windows tablets that provides a more affordable alternative to the Microsoft Surface. It can't go head-to-head with the iPad and Android tablets in terms of apps,...

Good Hardware - Win8.1 not so good

 

If you just want a tablet that just works, go with android or if you really want simple and I device..... If you want to run windows desktop software on a really small size machine, this is your choice.

Lenovo hardware is great ; Screen is very bright and resolution is good - can read outdoors ; Bios is pretty good for being UEFI ; Runs windows software ; With bluetooth mouse and keyboard it works as a micro laptop with all the software you are used...

32 bit UEFI means backup solutions based on Linux are tough since few Linux distros support 32 bit UEFI. Would have been better with 64 bit but Microsoft insists that us need 32bit for "ready standby". Google it and read the sad story ; Windows 8.1 is...

Lenovo not so good

 

Be careful on this one. There is a lot of chat about when Microsoft upgraded to 8.1. This seemed to be a common problem. I would have liked the unit and given it 5 stars if it were not for this issue.

Build quality is good, light and small design. Good battery life

There is a problem on the Miix 8 with Windows 8.1. When it goes to sleep it is very difficult to wake up. Pushing the power button and windows button at the same time sometimes got it to wake. Once unit did wake, it would drop the wifi. The only way to...

Impressive for a small tablet.

 

I also got the Flip Cover With Stylus. The cover fits nicely and the Stylus has a thin tip which works very well.

It runs windows 8.1 very well. It boots up quite fast. 64GB Micro SDXC Flash Card works well. I have not had sufficient time to do a complete battery test but so far the battery life seems decent

GPS is present and does work but only about 25% of the time. I would not use this device for navigation purposes. Although Neweggs' specifications page says it has a HDMI port it does not

Bad choice

 

This was an impulse buy while in the store. I liked the idea of an 8 inch tablet with Windows 8. Once I got home and read the reviews online, I realized that more than 50% of the people that bought it hated it. It froze up immediately. I couldn't get...

Great Tablet, Useable Computer

 

I was looking for a small tablet primarily for consuming web and media content. I use Windows 8.1 at home and work. I wanted something that would synch easily with Windows and on which I could do Microsoft Office work when necessary without lugging my...

Size is perfect

Too small for real business

Consumer review by:

Fantastic. Full windows in form of great tablet.

 

Have owned this machine for little over a month now. Is perfect. Form factor is light and small -- better form factor than Samsung Note 8 tablet that I came from. Machine has full version of Windows and MS Office. Very responsive. Screen is beautiful...

Speed and form factor. Full Windows 8.1

Battery life could be better. Could use an additional speaker (2 instead of 1)

Consumer review by:

Amazing bang for your buck.

 

As a college student and a tech junkie/ nerd, I was really skeptical of this tablet given that it uses an atom processor and runs full windows. That said,the new quad core generation is not only zippy, but impressive! In fact, I'm typing this review on...
