Lenovo Yoga Tablet 3 8-inch

 

Its design deviates from the traditional slim, rectangular tablet aesthetic, due to its cylindrical spine. The chunky aluminum clad edge is comfortable to hold in one hand, and it additionally houses a built-in kick-stand in the back for when you want...

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 has a practical design that features a built-in kickstand. There is a rotatable camera that takes sharp photos and front-facing speakers that provide rich and clear audio. Battery life is long.

It's a bit heavy for its small size. Large games are slow to load.

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 is the tablet to get if your needs are simple and your budget is low.

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8

 

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 is a solid starter tablet with a unique design that optimizes multimedia consumption, but it's light on processing power.

Unique, functional design. MicroSD slot. Good camera. Long battery life.

Average display. Unimpressive performance.

Conclusions The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 is a decent choice if you don't want to be locked into Amazon's content ecosystem. It's also better than the Amazon Fire for watching video, thanks to its slightly higher screen resolution and unique design that...

Lenovo Yoga TAB 3 8-inch Review

 

Android tablets as a whole have been seeing a tremendous slowdown over the last couple of years, nowhere close to the feverish levels of what they were a few years back with the segment's genesis. Lenovo's Yoga tablet series, surprisingly enough, has...

Inexpensive starting cost ; Software is more stock Android than ever before ; Extra-long battery life

Subpar qualities with its lower-resolution display ; Sluggish performance ; Disappointing camera performance

Stacking it up against its direct predecessor from last year, there are some unsavory decisions that would make almost anyone suspicious about the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8-inch. For starters, its specs sheet indicates that certain areas have been scaled...

It’s awesome that Lenovo is continuing the Yoga tablet line because they’re different from the competition while keeping the price low enough for just about anyone to purchase.

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 Review and Ratings

 

Lenovo's 8-inch "Lollipop"-Android version of the Yoga Tab 3 scales back on its predecessor's specs and achieves a lower price, longer battery life, and some surprises.

Lower price than previous gen ; Excellent sound quality, battery life for a small tablet ; Sturdy build quality ; Innovative built-in kickstand ; Rotatable camera lens

No HDMI-out ; Dull performance on benchmark tests ; Lower resolution and less RAM than predecessor ; Slightly heavier than peers

In some ways—longer battery life, lower resolution, lower RAM, light-hitting processor—the Android-based Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 has returned to its first-generation roots, in a good way. By trading off some component muscle for a lower price, Lenovo has...
