Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 inch 850F

65% Lenovo Yoga TAB 3 8-inch Review

Clearly, this is the kind of tablet for those who want don’t want to be burdened with a high learning curve, or just don’t want to spend a fortune. To that degree, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8-inch does right by sporting a starting cost of $169.99 from the get-go, which is a bargain in the world of 8-inch tablets. If price clearly dictates your judgment, this is something that should be on your radar – just know that there are compromises in settling with it. However, if you’re able to spend just a little more, say $200, the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 would be a more attractive option.

As a media-consumption device, the Yoga Tab 3 stands above similarly priced 8-inch tablets, thanks mostly to its prodigious 15-hour-plus battery life. I like the Yoga Tab 3's kickstand, which is a feature I think every tablet should have. The Tab 3's front-facing speakers are key, too, even if the low-end audio is a little lacking.

80% Flexi-tablet goes budget for round three

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 is a tablet that seems designed to showcase a hinge style. No, it's not a new concept, but the construction of the body and hinge doesn't half show it off in a good light. It's just a pity that much of the meat inside the 8-inch Yoga Tab 3 seems a little stale - weaker than its pricier predecessor. Note we didn't say rotten, though. It's no outright stinker, so long as you can accept screen quality and general performance limitations then the Tab 3 has its target audience. Display and performance certainly aren't its strong point.

70% Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8

The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 is a decent choice if you don't want to be locked into Amazon's content ecosystem. It's also better than the Amazon Fire for watching video, thanks to its slightly higher screen resolution and unique design that makes it comfortable to hold in your hand or prop up on the nearest flat surface. But it's hard to ignore just what a good deal the new Fire tablet is; you can buy three for the price of a single Yoga Tab. And considering it offers comparable performance, the Amazon Fire remains our Editors' Choice for budget tablets. If you're willing to spend more, you're better off with the Asus ZenPad S.

As handy as the kickstand is, though, the Yoga Tab’s internal hardware makes it an entry-level tablet. The Qualcomm APQ8009 processor and Adreno 304 graphics provide an acceptable experience for day-to-day tasks, but if you plan to and heavy gaming or run processor / graphics intensive apps, you’ll probably wish you had gone for a more expensive, more powerful tablet.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8” 850F is designed for multimedia use and performs as expected from a mid-priced table. Its 8 inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels is able to provide users with enjoyable clear images. Although it may not compete with higher-end devices with better displays, the Yoga Tab 3's display is sufficient for videos and games for users who are not too particular with having flawless visuals. To further enhance the multimedia experience, Lenovo included Dolby Atmos dual speakers in this tablet, which provide above average sound quality and comes with an app which allows users to customize the audio to their liking.

The Yoga Tab 3 is especially differs from its competitors in its design. It comes with a barrel on the left-hand side for easier handling, which also encompasses a 180° rotating camera and a kickstand. The rotating camera features a resolutions of 8 MP, but it lacks a flash. It is adjustable to mimic both the rear and front camera. The kickstand on the other hand is pretty handy, when there is a need to adjust the viewing angle in landscape mode, and it can also be hooked on the wall. Despite the added barrel, the Yoga Tab 3 is still decently light at only 0.472 kg. Other features include 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB internal storage (expandable up to 128 GB), and an extended 20-hour battery life.

Qualcomm Adreno 304: Integrated mid-range graphics card in the Snapdragon 210 SoCs that supports OpenGL ES 3.0 and features unified shaders.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


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.


70.83%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
