Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 - Hands-on

Description:

Design/Build: Excellent. Solid build, Thin, Premium feel aluminium chassis (partly plastic), Creative kickstand, Comfortable but a little bit slippery to hold. Display: Ok. 8inch 1280×800, IPS screen at 190PPI which is a bit low (same as Galaxy Tab ) but acceptable when reading from 10 inch distance (monitor is about 90PPI and reading from 20inch distance). Bright, Vibrant colour, however the Black colour could be darker. Personally, I wouldn’t consider any tablet with screen size smaller than 8inch (which is 30% more area than 7inch) as I do not like to stress my eye too much when browsing. Speed: Ok. MediaTek MT8125 quad core Not powerful but sufficient for normal use and light gaming. Smooth in home screen. Not very smooth when operating in the browser. Very energy efficient. It has lasted almost 9hours ( with display-on and heavy usage) from full charged and still have 50% battery left. Weight: 400g. It is heavier than most tablet of similar size but due to the way the distribution of weight mainly on the cylinder tube, you don’t really feel much weight when holding with one hand. Operating in landscape mode is not bad either as you can rest the cylinder on your palm. The other consideration is if you get a hardcase with kickstand assuming you buying other tablets, it is going to add 50-150g to the total weight. Software: Ok. Android with doggy Lenovo homescreen, I’ve installed Nova launcher which is much better. Storage: Good. 16GB Built-in, expandable with micro sd up to 64GB RAM: Ok. 1GB. A bit low by today standard. Unlike my Sony Xperia phone, fortunately Lenovo doesn’t pack much media stuffs. The free RAM space was between 450mb to 550mb which is sufficient for few additional applications to run in parallel. I have done few tweaks such as reduce animation time and force GPU rendering. The performance is ok but I am hopping to overclock the CPU to In general, it is a very good device with solid aluminium build, creative design and battery life which last forever. For £199, it is good purchase for a unique and practical 8inch tablet.
