When Lenovo introduced the new Yoga tablet in the world, they got a lot of attention because of the exceptional designs. The Android Tablet is well made and is very versatile thanks to a fold-out stand. We tried the cheaper 8 inch version.
The display has a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels. Although these are not as many as for example the Google Nexus 7 has but limited in the use of a not really. The brilliance of color, viewing angle stability and brightness are good, so the tablet can also be used with confidence in the field. Inside is a MediaTek MT8389 are quad-core processor with 1.2 GHz, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB memory which can be expanded via microSD card up to 32GB. The MediaTek processor offers in practice enough power for all applications relevant to everyday life. At interfaces are there in addition to a micro-USB port, a 3.5mm jack, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, GPS and Bluetooth.
The casing of the Lenovo Yoga tablet 8 differs from most competitors by its unusual design. In the cylindrical part stuck next to the battery and the folding stand. Thanks to this cylinder can hold the tablet wonderfully with one hand and also when lying on the table or lap it makes for an inclined position, which is perfect for writing or reading.
The dimensions are 224 x 154 mm with a thickness of 3 to 21 mm. With 399 grams, it is comparatively difficult for an 8-inch tablet, but this is mainly due to the relatively large 6000 mAh battery. The tablet consists mainly of silver plastic, only the stator and the physical buttons are made of aluminum. The back is ribbed, which increases the slip resistance. The stand can be opened only with a little effort, since it is supported by strong hinges. The strong hinges also make for a firm grip when the stand is opened, and let the tablet does not tip over easily to the rear.
As with most other tablets also can we expect from the built-in cameras do not expect too much: The front lens with 1.6 megapixels makes spongy pictures, the back camera with 5 megapixels has problems with bright surfaces and makes colors slightly pale dar. are stereo speakers positioned on the front side adjacent to the hinge, and provide a relatively good sound!
The big battery makes for an exceptionally long battery life. Surfing the Internet and half screen brightness are over 15 hours in it, other comparable tablets do not even create 10 hours.
Conclusion: The Lenovo Yoga tablet 8 can not only by its unusual design points with me, also the value for money is excellent. Through the cylinder makes the tablet not only enjoyable with one hand, but also set up wonderfully at different angles.
