So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8-inch! While this tablet checks a lot of the right boxes, with it featuring an excellent design and build quality, exceptional battery life, a near-stock software experience, and a very affordable price tag, it stumbles when it comes to the lower resolution display, disappointing camera, and performance issues. This is certainly not a bad tablet, and the unique form factor and built-in kickstand are big positives as well. However, if that isn’t important to you, there are some better options out there that fall in the price range, such as the ASUS ZenPad S 8.0, or even the still very capable Nexus 7 (2013), that are much better performers, and offer a better package overall.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
