Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 review

 

The Yoga Tablet's innovative kickstand and 14-hour battery life are fantastic, but its interface is ugly and buggy.

We want to like this tablet, but we can’t. As much as we’d love to recommend a tablet because on it, if you’re going to spend a few hundred dollars for a new device, you want the best you can get for your greenbacks. This ain’t it.

Review: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8

 

Wir haben jahrelang darauf gewartet, dass wir eine Review eines neuen Gerätes mit einem Bild der Rückseite beginnen können. Beim neuen Yoga Tablet 8 von Lenovo lässt sich das erstmals wirklich rechfertigen. Denn auch wenn das Tablet von vorne...

Lenovo Yoga Tablet review

 

A laptop hinge isn't something you're supposed to think about: it opens so you can use your computer, closes when you're done. The end. But Lenovo's turned its swiveling parts into a genuine differentiator: the Yoga range of Windows 8 PCs is powerful,...

Hinge is really useful ; Thin design ; Long battery life

Terrible performance ; Ugly Android customizations ; Bad, low-res display

Give me your stands, your cases, your awkward and precarious propping mechanisms

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8

 

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 is better than its 10-inch counterpart, but it isn't the best small-screen Android tablet out there, and it's more expensive than many competitors.

Sturdy aluminum construction. Useful kickstand. Feels weightless thanks to unique design.

Heavy-handed Android skin. Software bugs. Unimpressive performance.

Performance and Conclusions The Yoga 8 is equipped with the same quad-core MediaTek processor, and since the display resolution is the same, performance is identical between the two. Head over to the Yoga 10 review for a full breakdown, but to recap,...

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 review

 

Lenovo added two tablets to its convertible Yoga line in fall 2013 with the Yoga Tablet 8 and Yoga Tablet 10 . Though they're aesthetically unique, with a design that features a rounded spine and kickstand, their identical internal specs, mediocre...

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 's super-slim, unique design makes it easy to hold. It’s also only $250.

The tablet’s low-resolution screen is dull and the heavily modified operating system is downright ugly.

Though it feels well-built and has a handy kickstand, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet’s poor performance makes it hard to justify even at its low cost.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 Review

 

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 8 sports the longest running battery on a small tablet and an adjustable kickstand, but its specs trail cheaper competitors.

Innovative onboard kickstand; Incredibly long-lasting battery; Excellent speakers; Super-slim, attractive build

Mediocre display; Odd Lenovo skin

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 8 sports the longest running battery on a small tablet and an adjustable kickstand, but its specs trail cheaper competitors.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 Review

 

We'll admit, we're smitten by the affordable cost attached to the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 – more so when it proves to give us one of the longest lasting battery life on a tablet. Well, if that's too much tablet for you to handle, there's always its...

Very affordable ; Long-lasting battery life ; Interesting design, solid construction

Hardware is not first-class ; Disorganized homescreen layout ; Poor camera performance

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...

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8

 

Lenovo's Yoga 8 tablet, which shares identical internal specs with the Yoga 10 , has a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory - expandable to 64GB via microSD. It features a unique, built-in kickstand which allows for up to 133...

Impressive battery life, Slim, modern design, Innovative kickstand

Underwhelming display, Heavily modified user interface, Sub-par overall performance

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 Review

 

The Yoga 8 tablet by Lenovo is a well-built device with great design and sturdy performance. The tablet definitely gives the Nexus 7 (2013) a run for its money.

Excellent battery life, Great build, Looks good, Good value for money

Poor viewing angles and display quality, Slightly under-powered

Video Perspective: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 and Yoga Tablet 10

 

Lenovo isn't a company that seems interested in slowing down. Just when you think the world of notebooks is getting boring, it releases products like the ThinkPad Tablet 2 and the Yoga 2 Pro. Today we are looking at another innovative product from...

10.1-in model starts at $274.
