Its body is made up aluminium and plastic. The design of the tablet is the main selling point, partly because it's something a bit different and partly since the specifications aren't anything special. The Yoga Tablet earns the first part of its name by being 'multi-mode' this means the tablet can be used in various different positions. Like any tablet you can hold the Yoga in portrait or landscape. That's called 'hold mode' but in portrait it's much easier to hold that others because the vast majority of the weight is on one side and therefore in your hand. Its svelte shape also makes it look sleek and desirable.
Watch videos and images like never before on its 8 inch IPS touchscreen with a 1280 x 800p resolution. No stops, no pauses, not even to blink, the power of its Processor ensures that your work can go on without any halt. Its big memory size can satiate you for storing all your important docs, images and music files. Its 5 MP Autofocus rear camera of this 10.1 inch tablet lets you pursue your passion for photography. Its A-GPS technology will never let you lost in any foreign land. With a 9000 mAh battery, offering up to 18 hours of battery life, you can browse the net, shoot photographs or talk till you fall asleep. If you are a big fan of music, you'll become a big fan of this tablet which is one of the best quad core tablets. The reason being it supports Dolby DS1 and front stereo speakers that offer superior sound quality. And if you don't want the world to know what you are listening to, just use a headphone by plugging into its 3.5 mm jack. On the other side, we found the tablet lagging in launching some apps. Admittedly, the lag is not that consistent but considering that a quad-core processor backs the Yoga tablet, it is quiet disappointing.
If you thought you couldn't be thrice as happy with just one device, think again. This device offers 3 modes, a hold mode, a stand mode and a tilt mode. Give your wrist a rest as you hold this evenly weight distributed tablet. With virtually no twisting force, it offers comfortable holding with just one hand. The unique kickstand ensures you can enjoy your videos, video chats and movies while being hands-free. Its one-of-a-kind battery cylinder gives the perfect tilting angle for enhanced touch interaction. An important document needs to be sent across or an urgent presentation needs to be mailed and your tablet dies on you. Well, with it, you can put this fear to rest. Its 9000 mAh battery offers you up to 18 hours of performance, about 2 times to that of a standard tablet and is always ready when you are. You can also charge your smartphone or other devices with it.
Why would you love it?
It’s a perfect device for those who are most of the times moving from places to places and need to stay connected with their family and work all the time. It is also best suited for those who love to use the latest high-end devices that are both fun and functional. If you are from the new generation who almost live 24x7 online and are avid social networkers, this Lenovo tablet makes for a suitable choice. It provides a very decent experience for watching video content on it.
Will I buy it?
The difference between this device and yoga b6000 is of screen size and battery only keeping all other specifications same. So dividing same number of pixels on even larger screen reduces the density of the pixels and hence its performance. Though its impressing and innovative design is mesmerising and can attract many people. So depending on the usage, like if you want to buy a tablet for show off only then you can think about it but personally I will not buy it as there is no NFC, switching between applications takes time. Being available with a high speed processor, performance still doesn’t excel. So the price of this tablet doesn’t justify its performance.
