The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is a big tablet with a tiny projector ...

 

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 Pro brings back its funky ergonomic design and throws a projector on it for good measure...

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro's versatile design features a built-in kickstand and pico projector. Its HD screen is sharp and battery life is long. Its The front-facing speakers and rear subwoofer sound loud and crisp.

There's no app tray. The projector's brightness is rather dim in most rooms and its low resolution will disappoint fans of high-definition video. Also, it's a bit heavy.

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro's design is great for at-home use and the built-in projector is handy for watching video or making presentations, but the UI is too stripped down.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro Android, 13-inch

 

Performance-wise, it's not a monster, but feature-wise, it's a unicorn. Like last year's Android-based Yoga tablets, this model has a distinct rounded spine with a built-in kickstand that makes hands-free movie watching and on-screen typing easy peasy....

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro

 

The projector-packing Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro excels as a self-contained home theater, but questionable Android software tweaks and performance issues hamper the experience.

13-inch, Quad HD LCD. Useful kickstand design. Built-in projector.

Heavy-handed Android skin. Performance hiccups.

Camera and Conclusions I can't stress how silly it looks and feels to try and use the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro as a camera, but the 8-megapixel rear-facing camera is there nonetheless. It's actually not bad in the grand scheme of tablet cameras, producing...

This tablet has so much going for it: a sleek design, a projector built into the hinge, and a pretty good battery life. But Lenovo's Android customizations are awful.

Gorgeouc 13.3-inch IPS display ; Rear projector is actually pretty neat and can be used in a variety of scenarios

You'll have to adjust to carrying around a laptop-sized tablet ; Lenovo's Android's interface is laggy and unintuitive

A fantastic, productivity-focused tablet that's marred by Lenovo's subpar Android interface.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro review

 

The all-around best-in-class example of a first-generation Windows 8 hybrid was the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga , a clever fold-back laptop-turned-tablet that was almost universally liked in both its 13-inch and 11-inch versions (let's just not mention the...

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 is an excellent ultrabook, even without digging into its hybrid capabilities. This new model adds a backlit keyboard and an impressive 3,200x1,800-pixel-resolution display, while keeping the price under $1,000.

In battery life it lags behind a couple of more expensive higher-res laptops, some of the hybrid modes are of dubious use, and Lenovo still doesn't know what to do with the keyboard in tablet mode.

A major update to our favorite Windows 8 hybrid, the IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is still a better laptop than tablet, but the new version adds a future-proof better-than-HD display at a great price.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro Review

 

Pro as in projector? Lenovo shows its innovative side: The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro can be hung up on a wall, has an integrated subwoofer, and even a projector is installed. At a first glance, that is enough to provide a "wow" factor - but we will check...

Unusual configuration, Quality design, Incorporated projector, Decent 2.1 sound system, High-res screen, Integrated stand, Accurate touchscreen, Everyday-suitable battery life, Low casing temperature development, Good cameras, Decent software

Casing's stability not good everywhere, Big and heavy for a tablet, Can fall over in stand mode, Screen's low color accuracy, Occasional stutters, Inaccurate GPS

The "wow" factor is quite large when hearing the configuration of Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 Pro for the first time: a projector, a brand name sound system, a decent camera, and a high-resolution screen. It is a great credit to Lenovo that it manages to...

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review

 

The Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro is a unique piece of work. Lenovo didn't fall into the same trap many manufacturers make in creating tiny boosts for their devices each year, changing only base configurations. They didn't say, hey, this YOGA Tablet is neat...

If you’re in the market for a massive tablet, the Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review is pretty awesome. The only real competition this device has at the moment is the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 which, if you’re buying straight from Samsung, will cost...

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review: A Big Tablet With Big Features

 

I've had a chance to test out the Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro. Does the Pro model improve upon the pain points of the original? What does Pro even represent?

Solid build quality, excellent battery life, beautiful display

Some Android tweaks are nice, while others seem unnecessary, minor complaint about the power button, and inadvertently turning off the screen

The Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro is a great device for media consumption, games, reading, and any other normal tablet functions (it has a rear camera too, but we all know that we shouldn’t be taking pictures with tablets by now, don’t we?). The addition of...
