Not just another Tablet/Notebook this looks very different and while it has an attached keyboard there is nothing showing when it is turned off and it can also be used with a (pen) supplied as a drawing area altogether taking things in a new direction.

The Lenovo Yogabook is a great idea, but it hasn’t been executed as well as it could have been. There’s certainly no knocking its innovative design – it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before - and build quality is second to none.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The First Isn’t Always The Greatest

Lenovo has taken a chance with the Lenovo Yoga Book and it’s nice to see companies continually try something new with their product lines. That being said, the amount of time that the company sunk into developing the Halo keyboard appears to have hamstrung the product as a whole.

70% Lenovo Yoga Book (Android) Review: Is It Good for Business?
Source: Business News Daily English
The Yoga Book’s ability to capture my pen-and-paper notes really impressed me. Using the device as a smart clipboard for your notepad is intuitive and works flawlessly out of the box, with zero setup required. And the fact that you can write with the display turned off and tucked behind the digitizer pad means that you can keep taking notes without needing to charge the thing every day. The Windows version of the Yoga Book can’t do that, so I would avoid that model.

82% The Lenovo Yoga Book Review – Too cool or too unconventional?
Source: Android Guys English
I feel like Lenovo is attacking the segment of iPad customers that buy iPads because there are no other alternatives on the market. The Android version of the Yoga Book comes in at the same base $500 price that the iPad does and much cheaper than the iPad Pro, but offers far more functionality out of the box than both. The software experience is more polished on the iPad, but the Lenovo Yoga Book has that cool factor that makes me want to take it everywhere I go.

That is pretty much it for the hardware side if things. After my initial use of the Lenovo Yoga Book, I am finding that I’m very impressed with it. I will have to take a bit of time to get used to the Halo keyboard, but it is a lot better than I expected. I have actually written this whole post on the Lenovo Yoga Book, and I am going to be using it as my daily driver for the next few weeks.

78% Lenovo Yoga Book Android review: Android on tablets hasn’t changed
Source: Techaeris English
It’s a nicely built tablet with great specs, sadly, Android still doesn’t look good or work well on a tablet. We’d recommend you look at the Yoga Book Windows 10 version. The Windows experience is better built for this type of device, unless you’re an artist who happens to like the Android art apps and the Lenovo software already on the tablet. As a drawing tablet, this is a real nice device.

The Lenovo Yoga Book offers more features in its Android tablet hybrid than any other device I’ve yet seen, and it does all of them well. Whether you are a blogger, a student, a casual reader who wants a Kindle that can do more, an artist, or a professional — there is much to like about this versatile, unique, and well-priced device\.

With the YOGA Book, you get a sleek device in a tablet form-factor that comes with a comfortably integrated keyboard which is connected by wire. When pushing the boundaries of Industrial design also pushes usability and productivity, we can only approve. I find it to be the best 10-inch tablet for someone who types a lot or watches movies frequently.

Lenovo Yoga Book review: The big effort for an Android laptop misses
Source: Talk Android English
The whole thing gets a little shaky when you go beyond Lenovo’s apps and services pre-installed here. Five years after bringing Android to tablets, Google just doesn’t seem to have the form factor figured out. So it’s not really Lenovo’s fault, but it does limit the capabilities for the Yoga Book. At $499, it’s tough to recommend this device when your money isn’t going very far. I’d actually recommend the Windows version because, despite being slightly more expensive, you’re getting an operating system built for the form factor. There’s little reason to buy an Android tablet right now, especially at $499. But there are plenty of reasons to get a full-blown laptop running software that matches perfectly with the hardware.

Lenovo Yoga Book review – the most versatile device ever made
Source: Laptop Media English
Can the Yoga Book be your notebook replacement? Probably not. But in most cases, the Lenovo Yoga Book can do so much more while other conventional tablets and laptops fail. In terms of productivity, the Halo keyboard might pose an issue to some users because let’s face it, you can’t beat the physical keyboard with a virtual one. Although, the one presented in this device comes pretty close. Also, if you really rely on your everyday tasks, the Windows version will suit you better while the Android variant will be more suitable for casual use and creativity, not to mention that the Android version still needs more polishing in terms of usability as we already mentioned in the software section.

Lenovo Yoga Book review: Less than the sum of its parts
Source: New Atlas English
If the Yoga Book had a more polished delivery, I'd be thoroughly impressed. For now, the less-than-perfect aspects stunt its hard-won flexibility and cripple that excitement. Maybe future generations will head in the right direction, but until then, I'd stick with solid, if less novel, 2-in-1 options.

60% Lenovo Yoga Book review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
A tough question for such a unique device. The Yoga Book should be very useful for students and sketchers who want to back up their work and also need a tablet for typed note taking. For everybody else with less specific use cases, a £400 Google Pixel C (with a third-party Bluetooth keyboard) might be a better choice. Or, if you want to spent a lot more, the highly capable 9.7-inch iPad Pro has better performance, an amazing stylus and a good keyboard. But with all of that you’re going to be spending close to £700.

80% Lenovo Yoga Book review: The 2-in-1 computer you will love but might find it hard to fully commit to
Source: PC Advisor English
The Yoga Book isn’t pretending it can replace your laptop, so don’t expect it to. You won’t get all your work done on it, but we are pleasantly surprised by how much we did get done when we needed to. Note taking with the paper remains the lasting attraction here, and while some tasks take slightly longer than if on a computer, the portability you gain for the price will be worth it for most.

In the end, though, the Yoga Book just aims a little too high, and while we can't deny just how chock full of potential this concept is, the execution fails to deliver in myriad ways – some big, some little. Take the stylus pen, for instance: it's great that it supports both device-safe stylus tips and real ink tips for working with paper, but there's no place to store neither the pen nor its interchangeable tips. Would it kill to have the pen open up to store extra tips inside?

The Lenovo Yoga Book, available with either Android or Windows, is a compelling hybrid device -- at least on paper. It ditches a physical keyboard for a touch-sensitive surface that does double duty as a keyboard and digital sketchpad.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review

In the end, the Lenovo Yoga Book is but a preview of the future. Even Lenovo itself says that it is just the first of many. Like any first generation device, it has a few quirks that make it less than perfect, but it deftly accomplishes what it sets out to do: offer an experience that combines the best of two creative worlds. It may not yet do for a primary workhorse, but as a companion device to take around for notes, scribbles and everything in between, it’s darn near perfect.

There are so many glimmers of greatness in the Lenovo Yoga Book that I wish I loved it more. You can see the first hints of the future of laptops in the device, which straddles tablets and laptops, but Lenovo hasn't stuck the landing just yet. It's a great device for drawing and note taking, and Lenovo has some ideas for Android from which Google should borrow liberally. But typing on the Halo keyboard is difficult enough that I could never get real work done on it.

As you can tell, we're excited about the Lenovo Yoga Book. We'll also be excited to test the Windows 10 version, although our time with the Android tablet makes us suspect it may be the better deal of the two: Besides costing $50 less, it'll likely squeeze perkier performance out of the Atom CPU, and it comes with Art Rage versus Art Rage Lite (although OneNote will presumably work nicely with the Real Pen and Create Pad).

Source: The Verge English
Because of stuff like this, it’s hard to recommend that someone should run out and buy the Lenovo Yoga Book right now. Lenovo has said that it plans to build a family of Yoga Book devices, and this feels very much like the first generation of that. It needs refinement. It needs more intuitive software. Maybe a couple more ports, too, even though that may mean sacrificing thinness.

70% Lenovo Yoga Book Review: For the Doodlers, Scribblers, and Inkers
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Lenovo Yoga Book is intended for serious inkers and digital artists, built around a great idea. Lenovo executes the hardware portion very well, making the Yoga Book one of the most attractive and well-designed devices we’ve ever reviewed. The Watchband hinge is superb, as is the Wacom-powered Create Pad. The Android-powered Yoga Book we reviewed is betrayed by its software. Even though we didn’t test it, we’re confident Windows is a much better operating system for a device so centered on inking, given the focus Microsoft placed on it with the recent Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The road warrior’s future

So, right now it’s a companion machine, albeit a charming and flexible one, though Lenovo isn’t going to leave it at that. The company has already told us that it sees this Yoga Book as just the first in a family of similar notebooks, offering something unique to those users whose requirements don’t begin and end with merely typing. The first Yoga Book may not be all things to everyone, but as a well-made and innovative flag bearer it has me mightily intrigued for the roadmap ahead.

Make no mistake, this is an amazing piece of hardware. Lenovo has clearly outdone themselves in design. If you really want Android to run on your laptop and don't care that apps are going to misbehave left and right, this is without a doubt the machine for you. If you're in love with this hardware and want an OS that actually makes sense in this form, the Windows Yoga Book is available right now and is a lot easier to recommend.

Sadly, we cannot recommend the Yoga Book as a laptop replacement with this processor. It’s an excellent, innovative Android tablet with some cool tricks. However, it’s not the laptop replacement it could be if it had a better processor. For this reason we also do not recommend the Windows version. Wait for the next version, or grab a Windows-based 2-in-1 or Chromebook if you’re looking for more performance and functionality.

Review: Lenovo Yoga Book
Source: Wired Magazine English
Can it do more than a tablet alone? It can, but at the cost of not being the best possible tablet. Can it replace your computer? The Atom processor and funky keyboard mean no, not likely. Ultimately, it’s like winding up with a platypus when all you really wanted was a beaver or a duck. The exception is if you enjoy digital sketching and note-taking enough that you want the option handy at all times, but not so much that you’d spring for a dedicated accessory. That’s a narrow frame of appeal to contort into, but hey. That’s what Yoga is for.

Comment

Model:

The Lenovo Yoga Book Android YB1-X90F is a 2-in-1 tablet ideal for mobile productivity and creativity. It can be used in four modes: lay-flat Create Mode for drawing and taking notes, Browse Mode as a compact tablet, Watch Mode for entertainment and Type Mode as a conventional laptop. Lenovo's watchband hinge make this all possible and is probably the best hinge fitted to a laptop.

The special features, NoteSaver and Real Pen Stylus, bring realistic writing experience to the tablet. NoteSaver is a special application offered by Lenovo to use the Yoga Book as a smart paper pad. By using the included Book Pad clipboard, it can magnetize the papers and keep them in place. While writing on the paper on the Book Pad clipboard with NoteSaver launched, notes can be digitized on the Yoga Book. Besides that, it also brings great drawing experience with Create Pad and Real Pen Stylus. Create Pad is a capacitive touchpad, which can be attached to the Yoga Book as another digital drawing pad. The Real Pen is capable of detecting 2048 levels of pressure to deliver from light to heavy strokes while drawing. Another advantage is that the Real Pen works without power. Drawing can be performed with two hands: one on the screen to select tools and pinch-to-zoom, while the other hand draws using the Real Pen. The keyboard on the other hand, is a huge let down. It is what Lenovo calls a virtual keyboard. The keys are well spaced but it is basically a flat keyboard on a piece of glass.

The Lenovo Yoga Book Android YB1-X90F is powered by an Intel Atom processor, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, 64 GB eMMC memory and an Intel HD Graphics. The storage can be upgraded via a microSD card with support of up to 128 GB. It has a 2-cell Li-Polymer 8500 mAh built in and, according to Lenovo, the battery is capable of delivering a battery life up to 15 hours and a standby time of over 70 days. For display, it features a glossy 10.1-inch Full HD IPS display, which supports multi-touch and 360-degree rotation. The display has a color depth of 16.7 million, a color gamut of 70% and brightness of 400 nits. The Lenovo Yoga Book Android YB1-X90F features access to Google Play and Android apps. It runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Lenovo included multiple application into the tablet for productivity and creativity, namely Lenovo Note Saver, Lenovo Collection, Lenovo SHAREit, Lenovo SYNCit, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, McAfee Security, Evernote ArtRage and TouchPal IME.

For convenience in video calling and image capturing, it has a rear camera of 8 MP with autofocus and a front camera of 2 MP with fixed focus. Sensors built into the tablet include a vibrator, a G-Sensor, an Ambient Light Sensor and a Hall Sensor. The Lenovo Yoga Book Android YB1-X90F is a very capable convertible laptop but is let down by its virtual keyboard. It is hard to imagine a person using it to do some serious typing.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company.

In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
