The "1-Minute" Review
- 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."
