Lenovo Yoga C630-13Q50 WOS

The Lenovo Yoga C630-13Q50 WOS is Lenovo’s latest Snapdragon-powered laptop. Running off Qualcomm’s shiny new Snapdragon 850 CPU, like the competing Asus VivoBook S, it aims to offer regular travelers a portable laptop with a marathon-long 25-hour battery life. The ‘WOS’ stands for ‘Windows on Snapdragon’ just to help make sure user know what they are getting: a processor designed by Qualcomm, best known for its mobile chips, which offers always-on internet and longer battery life than competing Intel devices. At just 125.5 mm thick and 1.2 kg, this is undeniably slender. It doesn’t feel flimsy or cheap though. The aluminium body emphasizes that this is a high-end device, as does the thinly-bezel display (except for the big gap below the screen). The C630 WOS is an impressively slim, lightweight design, which is kind of a necessary prerequisite for Lenovo’s ambitions that this is an always-on, always-connected device that users take with them on the go. The C630 packs in a 13.3-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen, despite its diminutive form factor. It’s crisp and bright, with vibrant colors and quick responses. It’s also compatible with the Lenovo Pen (sold separately) and Windows Ink if a user wants to use a stylus with it. The 1080p touch panel looked to display suitably vibrant and accurate colors to the naked eye. Lenovo isn’t listing the device as being Dolby Vision capable as it is with the C930, but at this price that’s more than forgivable. Qualcomm boasts that the new Snapdragon 850 chip offers 30 percent better performance and 20 percent better battery life and internet speeds over the Snapdragon 835, so this could be a substantial leap. In practice, it’s pretty close to the 845, the current flagship mobile chip, but is tuned slightly faster, along with improved thermal management and battery capacity thanks to the optimization for larger Windows devices. Beyond the main chip, the C630 comes with 8 GB of RAM, along with 256 GB of storage. The operating system will also in part be down to the fact that the laptop comes with Windows 10 S installed. This will be a sticking point for some buyers, however. Windows 10 S is a stripped-down version of Microsoft’s OS, which limits a user to using apps from the Windows Store. If a user uses any form of freeware that doesn’t feature in there then they won’t be able to run it on the Yoga C630 WOS out of the box. A user has the usual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0, along with two USB-C ports (one for charging) and a headphone jack. The lack of USB-A, HDMI, or even a MicroSD slot is a bit limiting but increasingly common in small form-factors. The battery is the other area that Qualcomm and Lenovo are both keen to hype up when it comes to the C630. The first wave of Snapdragon devices promised battery lives of 20 hours or more, but Lenovo claims its latest laptop can handle 25 hours or more on one charge. As a conclusion, it looks like the C630 could be a great all-rounder. If its battery life claims ring true and don’t mind the limitations of Windows 10 S, then the Yoga C630 WOS could be a great option for students or those who travel regularly.

Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS 2-in-1 PC Review
Source: Legit Reviews English
At the end of the day the YOGA C630 by Lenovo was obviously built by those wanting a Windows device that is always connected with true all day battery life. If that sounds like you and your applications operate on Windows on Snapdragon then the C630 might be just what you need. We managed to get almost 23 hours of battery life with the screen at 50% brightness and that is awesome. Sure, it isn’t the fastest laptop when it comes to CPU performance, but these Qualcomm Snapdragon platforms are getting better each and every generation. For $599 at Best Buy this laptop is fairly inexpensive for its current target audience, which would be business travelers or anyone working unplugged out in the field.

The Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS is a very long-lasting laptop that lets you get connected wherever you are, as long as you pay for a 4G data plan, at any rate. It’s also very thin and light making it a great travel companion.

Lenovo Yoga C630: The Benchmark for Next-Generation Notebook Computers
Source: Tech Times English
I think this Lenovo Yoga really represents a significant change in how people do and should build laptops. In a way it also anticipates the coming of the Microsoft Windows Virtual PC which, I think, is the future of desktop computing but requires a pervasive connection to a low latency (5G) network. I think—with the rollout of 5G—that a future always connected PC could become our new standard. If you get a chance to try one of these laptops out, give it a shot. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the product’s performance (it won’t set any records but it’s not bad at all), battery life, convenience, and utility.

Lenovo Yoga C630 Review: Big Battery Life, Always Connected
Source: Hot Hardware English
However, as a tool for browsing the Web (we ran Chrome, Firefox, and Edge with no trouble at all), emailing, or standard office tasks, the Lenovo Yoga C630 is an excellent small computer. Light, fast, convertible, always on, and always connected, the C630 gets the job done for mainstream consumption and productivity use cases. For those of us who don't always need more demanding 3rd party 64-bit applications that the Snapdragon-based system won't run, the Lenovo Yoga C630 is solid, compelling option. An affordable computer that's fast, convertible, always on, and always connected can be a real game changer for users who are constantly on the go.

I love the Lenovo Yoga C630, but the truth is that I wouldn't buy it for $939.99. I love it because I believe in Windows on ARM and I'm excited to see it in an actual convertible form factor, and also because I believe in 4G LTE connectivity on PCs. I also absolutely love the keyboard.

76% Lenovo Yoga C630 WoS Review: Long battery Life and 4G LTE
Source: Ubergizmo English English
Starting at ~$850 (4GB/128GB), the Lenovo Yoga C630 WoS isn’t an obvious value choice and it has many competitors equipped with a full-on 15W CPU priced within striking distance. As such, we’ll guess that people reading this review have a specific use case in mind, probably one with extreme connectivity and battery endurance in mind. We would recommend the 8GB of RAM version if you want to have more browser tabs open.

Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS review: Hands-on impressions
Source: Tech Advisor English
So far we're impressed by the C630. It's the first Windows on Snapdragon device that really looks like a compelling laptop, boasting a slick design and solid specs without hiking the price up to compensate. Performance and software compatibility remain slight question marks, but this looks like it could entice a fair few people away from Intel.

The Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS isn’t the only Snapdragon 850 laptop doing the rounds at IFA this year. But from what I’ve seen so far, it looks like it could be a great all-rounder.

Lenovo introduces Yoga C630 convertible notebook with Snapdragon 850
Source: Liliputing English
The Lenovo Yoga 630 WOS ships with Windows 10 S, which means that out of the box it will only run applications downloaded from the Microsoft Store. But you should be able to switch to a full version of Windows 10 to run x86 applications downloaded from other sources… just make sure to keep in mind that they’ll probably take a bit of a performance hit since the computer will have to emulate x86 architecture.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Lenovo Yoga C630 13 is one of the most affordable laptops available with 4G support and a 2-in-1 form factor. Factor in the super-long battery life and ultra-portable design, and this becomes a great option for students. However, it's worth bearing in mind that the ARM architecture suffers compatibility issues with 64-bit applications and isn't very powerful when compared to more traditional laptops at the same price point.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

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

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
