Test of the Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 8 inch version (+ video)

The Chinese manufacturer Lenovo is well known for its quality desktops and laptops. The company is the world’s leading PC manufacturer since it acquired IBM’s personal computing division in 2005. Today we are testing the Yoga tablet 2 in 8 inch version and we will see together that Lenovo quality and precision also apply very well on tablets.

Design

The design is very neat . The cylinder that encapsulates the battery and various other components is very well integrated and allows the screen to be a little thinner . It is an atypical but successful design The manufacturing quality plays a big part and it is impeccable. The crutch is solid and fulfills its role. Its presence reinforces the practical side , which we often have to delegate to the cases with other models of tablets.

Screen

The Yoga tablet 2 has a high quality screen. Its Full HD resolution (1920 * 1200) and its 283 ppi provide very good visual comfort. It is also quite rare to find a screen of this standing in 8 inch tablets. The Full HD resolution is really very appreciable.

Multimedia

Photos / Videos

We are in the presence of an 8 megapixel camera on the back and 1.6 megapixel on the front. Here Lenovo does not burst the screen with extreme values ​​in terms of quantity of pixels  and the sensor on the back does the minimum of work  (considering that we do not take a lot of photos with a tablet anyway). We regret a weak sensor on the front. The tablet being easily used in videoconferencing I find it really a shame. This is a real bad point

Speakers

With its 2 front speakers , the sound quality of Yoga 2 is rather average. In terms of volume it is sufficient and in terms of quality it is average.  Obviously you should not expect great sound quality with this type of built-in speakers. To conclude on the sound part, let’s say that I was not “pleasantly” surprised by the quality of the HP. I was not disappointed either. It’s passable. This is especially what you would expect in built-in speakers like these.

Autonomy

An autonomy of 18 hours is proudly announced on the front. What is it really? In practice the tablet is much more average than what is promised. It does neither better nor worse than the others with a noted autonomy of around 11/12 hours in conventional use (mainly web and some videos / games). It is very commendable but I did not see the trace of the 6 pm…

Video test

Conclusion

This Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 in 8 ″ version is very good value for money / performance / price . For around 230 € we have a quality tablet with many advantages and which can differentiate itself from others on the market. It is a very good surprise from my side and I recommend this tablet which for me is the right compromise on this segment of the 8 inches .
