Lenovo Yoga Tablet review: long battery life in an otherwise disappointing device

Summary

The Yoga Tablet sports an innovative kickstand design and offers great battery life, but those pluses don't make up for poor performance and a mediocre display.

Pros
  • Sturdy, lightweight design
  • Offers good functionality for the price
  • Great battery life
Cons
  • Poor display
  • Sluggish performance
  • Heavily skinned version of Android
Lenovo Yoga Tablet review: long battery life in an otherwise disappointing device

Lenovo's Yoga Ultrabook is often name-dropped as one of the best Windows 8 convertibles out there. It's no surprise, then, that the company would want to get more mileage out of its Yoga brand. Curiously, Lenovo's chosen to expand the lineup with an Android slate: the simply named Lenovo Yoga Tablet. Like the original Yoga and the new Yoga 2 Pro, the tablet works in several positions -- in this case, thanks to a built-in kickstand. It's rated for a staggering 18 hours of battery life, as well. Oh: and newly minted Lenovo spokesman Ashton Kutcher is shilling the device, so there's that.

While Lenovo's Yoga Ultrabooks are flagship products with the price tags to match, the Yoga Tablet is surprisingly affordable: $249 for the 8-inch model, and $299 for the 10-incher. So, curious how the Yoga's acrobatic capabilities translate into a standalone slate? Read on for the full report.
