Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956

85% Review Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10 | Notebookcheck
Kicking it. The innovative IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10 comes with an integrated kickstand which allows switching between what Lenovo calls stand, hold, and tilt mode. Is this standout feature enough to differentiate the tablet with its middle-of-the-road hardware and average feature set from the competition?

You can't help but wonder how much those quirky embelishments and fancy materials have increased costs, though, and it's meant that corners have been cut in the most vital areas - display quality and power. It's a big tablet for little money, though, and that distinctive design and excellent battery life will make it appealing to many - just don't let the premium aesthetics fool you into thinking the innards are equally high-end.

Being brutally honest, probably not. While we like the design and are very impressed with the battery life, it just feels like another also-ran in the incredibly competitive Android tablet space. Its specifications are pretty average and benchmarks suggest a weaker performance than cheaper machines like the Tesco Hudl and even the aging iPad 2. On top of that, the 1,280 x 800 screen resolution is lower than some mobile phones.

Gaming ability is likewise below par. In the GFXBench 2.7 T-Rex HD test, it gained a score of 4.8fps, a long way behind modern tablets such as the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9in, which scored 14fps. This is most clearly illustrated in the Tablet 10's skipping and faltering frame rate while playing demanding 3D games such as Asphalt 8: Airborne, a task that ultimately proved too much for it.

The Yoga Tablet 10 looks great and the innovative design is the main selling point of this device. The wedge shape profile means holding it in portrait, in either hand, puts most of the weight in your hand making it more comfortable to use.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet review: long battery life in an otherwise disappointing device
Source: Engadget English
Lenovo's Yoga Tablet has potential, but ultimately the device feels unfinished. It's a slate with good hardware, complete with a clever kickstand design, that rides on the esteemed Yoga name. Lenovo relied way too heavily on that branding, though; unlike the Ultrabooks with their largely high-caliber specs, the tablet sports an unacceptably mediocre display, packs a sluggish processor and delivers a bizarrely skinned version of Android 4.2.

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 is one of the cheaper 10in tablets around and it has an excellent design. Hardware and task performance are both lacking somewhat but battery life is a strong point. A great Android tablet for those less bothered about top-end specs.

In short, we really can't recommend the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 to anyone. It has missed its mark, though Lenovo might be onto something with this form factor. We're hoping for big things from Lenovo in the tablet space, but unfortunately the Yoga Tablet 10 falls short in nearly every category. If you've had your eye on this tablet and were considering it, go with the aforementioned tablets instead.

50% Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 review: New screen size, same terrible tablet
Source: TechHive.com English
At $300 the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 is priced favorably against other 10-inch tablets (unlike it's 8-inch sibling), but you get what you pay for. Aside from the tablet’s stellar battery life, every other aspect of the Yoga Tablet 10 is a huge let down. Although the tablet may seem tempting to shoppers on a budget, you’re honestly better off saving your money for a more premium tablet that offers a better overall experience.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet Review

I was genuinely surprised (in a good way) by the Lenovo Yoga Tablet design and overall philosophy, and at the same time, I’m pleased to see that instead of trying to go head-to-head against Nexus 7 Lenovo carved a space for its Android tablet. To make a long story short, Lenovo brings the ultimate tablet battery life, at the expense of performance.

I'll give Lenovo credit here: The Yoga Tablet is a well-built, attractive, and affordable 10-inch tablet. But where it matters most, the Yoga Tablet still lacks any truly compelling aspect to elevate it above the competition. The display is good, but not great. The performance is good, but not great. The software is, well, just not great. The Yoga Tablet is a good tablet at a good price. But unfortunately for Lenovo, there are too many great tablets at a great price, like the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" for $60 more ($379) or a smaller screen tablet like the Nexus 7 for $229.

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 10 definitely tried to be different and in some way it succeeds but ultimately it is undone by some budget class features. The tablet is designed to be affordable and it does achieve this compared to other 10-inch tablets. The kickstand and long battery life are its real stand out features although the odd shape can take a while to get used to or carry around.

For $299, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 offers a premium build, unique design and impressive battery life. This device's rounded hinge makes it easier to hold the tablet with one hand without strain, and we appreciated the ability to use the kickstand to switch between Tilt and Stand modes. Plus, Lenovo's additional software work helps make the most of these different modes.

Lenovo Yoga 10: Mediocre tech, yes, but beautifully fondleable
Source: Reg Hardware English
In line with its asking price, the Yoga 10 has a mediocre screen resolution and a mid-range chipset, but it still does everything you are likely to want a tablet to do and with a decent lick of speed. What separates it from the herd is the rather clever form-factor, which pays dividends should you wish to pop it on a desk or hold it in your hand. If you plan on using your tablet primarily for reading books, watching videos or video chatting then the stand-me-up and sit-you-down stand options and ergonomic bulge are well worth having.

Neither tablet scores particularly well in our benchmarks and you'll like find it in line with the performance of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 released in mid-2012. It was more than capable of handling web browsing and playing back video content but for advanced Android game the Yoga Tablets will likely suffer.

Comment

Model:

The Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956 is a 10 inch tablet with a 16:10 ratio display. The aesthetic is minimalist and clean, with a silver, sturdy construction and a built in kickstand that folds out of the unique ergonomic rounded base to reveal a microSD card slot. The configuration options of storage are limited to either 16GB or 32GB, so the microSD slot is a welcome addition that will allow users to expand storage by up to 64GB. With its 1280 x 800 resolution display, this tablet has 151 PPI. So, the display is one of the major downsides of this device, especially when compared to similarly priced machines.

Powered by the MT8125 Quad-Core ARM-SoC with 1GB RAM, this device will not churn out blazing fast performance, or give users the capability to play demanding games. On a positive note, the energy efficiency of this component means that the Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956 will last. Running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, this device is not the most up-to-date, but Lenovo has overlain their own UI over it, making it possibly one of the simplest and most user friendly adaptation. Those who are new to Android will appreciate the simplification. Emblazoned on the box is the symbol that proclaims Dolby Digital Plus, but unfortunately the audio is weak and tinny. The Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956 is a well designed machine on the outside, but there are plenty of potentially better options out there, with better specs and certainly more value for money.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.61 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
