What's good

  • Impressive battery life
  • Slim, modern design
  • Innovative kickstand

What's bad

  • Underwhelming display
  • Heavily modified user interface
  • Sub-par overall performance

Lenovo’s Yoga 10 tablet, which shares identical internal specs with its little brother, the Yoga 8, has a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory - expandable to 64GB via microSD.

It features a unique, built-in kickstand which allows you to place it in 3 distinct positions. The battery, which is housed inside the cylindrical kickstand, is rated at up to 18 hours.

There's a 1280 x 800 IPS, 10-point touch screen display, which many reviewers found average to underwhelming. CNET said, “it has the same 1,280x800 resolution (150ppi) that's on the smaller Yoga 8. On an 8-inch screen, that resolution isn't terrible, but stretched to 10 inches, it looks, well, stretched out.”

The tablet offers a front-facing 1.6 megapixel camera, and a 5 megapixel rear camera. It’s 5-megapixel back camera with autofocus does a decent job of snapping both close-up and wide shots,” according to CNET.

The Yoga 10 also offers Dolby-enhanced, front-facing speakers, and a Dolby app that allows you to change audio profiles and set up two custom equalizer modes. “We played "Thriller" by Michael Jackson on max and the tablet filled a small meeting room with clear, rounded audio,” Laptopmag said.

Overall, most reviewers liked the innovative kickstand and battery life, but found the display and processor only average.

Mobileburn summed it up this way, “with better software, a more dense display, and a new processor, this could have been one of the best tablets on the market."

What the Critics Are Saying...


TrustedReviews

A pleasing design and fantastic battery life is let down by a low resolution screen and dull performance. You can do better than this for not much more.

- Alan Martin, TrustedReviews
PC Pro

The design, battery life and price all contribute to a tablet of great flexibility and much potential, but the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 ultimately falls short. The flimsy feeling keyboard, off-colour, low-resolution display and sluggish performance mean we can't recommend it.

- Bobby MacPherson, PC Pro

There is no doubt that Lenovo has put in a lot of thought in the whole design of the tablet, making it stand out from the routine crowd. Additionally, it's worth pointing out that Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 10 multimode feature includes those modes, which generally require a separate cover or a stand for...

We will admit we were more than a bit skeptical with the design here. And while we haven’t really gotten past the ‘strange’ look of the Yoga Tablet (as compared to a regular tablet), we were pleasantly surprised when we removed them from the box. From the first time we picked the t...

If you’re strapped for cash, then it’s a no-brainer decision to pick this one up.
