It's a great product, with a design to match, but the Yoga Tablet 2 10 struggles to live up to its superb first impressions, due to a heap of little (and larger) problems. Still, it offered a long battery life and, thanks to its kickstand, proved practical for multimedia usage.

I still think that the Yoga Tablet 2 is a good choice for the general consumer. It may not be a powerhouse like the NVIDA Shield Tablet or the Nexus 9, but it’s not trying to be. The Yoga 2 excels where it always has and that’s offering a great user experience, a unique design and a dece...

After reviewing this tablet's somewhat-awkward bigger brother, I found myself tempering my expectations for the Yoga Tablet 2 10-inch with Windows. But in just a short time, I discovered that my apprehension was largely unwarranted. The Yoga Tablet 2 delivers a bright screen, detachable keyboard and a stunning 12 hours of battery life, and even has cameras on the front and back, unlike the 13-inch version.

Lenovo introduced another decent daily machine with the Yoga Tablet 2, bringing enough features and considerations for a large chunk of tablet shoppers. While there are a few issues with it, consumers searching for a tablet for everyday browsing, productivity and streaming entertainment will find a lot of value in the $300 device, especially with the great sound and long battery life. However, everything comes with a catch - the design. For some consumers, the cylinder-centric design won't affect their routines, but others will find it hard to work with. Compared to some other lower priced options on the market the Yoga Tablet 2 feels like it under performs, but only those playing a lot of games will be apt to notice. As long as consumers don't have heavy demands on their devices and can deal with the design quirks, Lenovo's tablet will serve most needs.

I still think that the Yoga Tablet 2 is a good choice for the general consumer. It may not be a powerhouse like the NVIDA Shield Tablet or the Nexus 9, but it’s not trying to be. The Yoga 2 excels where it always has and that’s offering a great user experience, a unique design and a decent price tag. I think that the kickstand adds a lot of it since you don’t need a case to stand it up to watch a movie or tv show or to prop it up on your lap to type. If you wanted to have it hanging on your wall, you could possibly make it like an interactive calendar or an easily accessible computer in the kitchen to play music while cooking or to display recipes.

Lenovo is kind enough to offer consumers choice with its line of Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 devices. Essentially, it all boils down to what platform will suit you best – Android or Windows. In our review, we find the Windows 8.1 model being more PC-like than tablet, especially when this one comes packaged with a Bluetooth keyboard. On the software side, it proves to be more versatile because we’re exposed to a real desktop operating system.

Sure, its battery life suffers with the switch to Windows 8.1, but the $400 price attached to it dishes up some good value. Needless to say, it’s not a workhorse like some ultrabooks, but it’s still portable enough to handle basic productivity software – while still being a fantastic multimedia consumptive device.

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows is almost the perfect budget Windows 8 device. A high-resolution display, loud, clear speakers, and solid productivity and media performance are packed into a svelte package and bundled with a great keyboard -- all for just $369.99, AU$499.

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows is almost the perfect budget Windows 8 device. A high-resolution display, loud, clear speakers, and solid productivity and media performance are packed into a svelte package and bundled with a great keyboard -- all for just $369.99, AU$499. As it stands, it's a great tablet with a really awkward oversight.

But maybe you'll get over it: I did. If you're careful you can use the tablet in your lap, but I generally found it far more comfortable to set the display up on my desk or connect it to a larger display, and just work from afar with the wireless keyboard. If you want a full Windows experience in a small shell and don't want to spend much, you'll do well here.

It seems Lenovo set out to find the perfect device for both entertainment and productivity. For the most part, I’d say they achieved it. The Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows is great for reading and watching movies. The form factor nails these experiences in ways we haven’t seen before. In other ways, the form factor misses the mark. The included keyboard has way too much flex and the keys are way too small to make this a productivity powerhouse.

In a world with a ton of different tablets to choose from, standing out is everything. Just based on the size, build quality, screen, and speakers, we’d say that Lenovo does just that. However, you need to know what flaws the tablet brings before making your purchase. The software is largely unoriginal, the cameras are almost unusable, and the entire UI runs a bit slow. If you can get over those negatives, you’ll have one heck of a well-built tablet.

Picking an affordable, large-screen Android tablet is all about compromise. You just can't expect to find the best performance, thoughtful software, and attractive design in a sub-$300 device. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 comes close, though, delivering unique looks, a sharp full HD display, and good-enough performance for most needs. It also achieves all of this without demanding a huge premium over the competition. If you're in the market for an entry-level tablet for basic multimedia and Web browsing needs, I'd recommend the $270 Yoga Tablet 2 over both the $249 LG G Pad 10.1 and $349.99 Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1.

Solid specs for a tablet of its price

Lenovo is a company that deserves props for being persistent. It’s struggled to create a great tablet, but it’s slowly getting closer to that goal. The Yoga Tablet 2 10-inch is the latest attempt and it refines features of its predecessors, but also leaves some things to be desired. One thing is certain, Lenovo needs to step up its software game if it hopes to continue improving its devices. The hardware is filled with potential, but the software is continuing to hold it back...

Lenovo is a company that deserves props for being persistent. It’s struggled to create a great tablet, but it’s slowly getting closer to that goal. The Yoga Tablet 2 10-inch is the latest attempt and it refines features of its predecessors, but also leaves some things to be desired. One thing is certain, Lenovo needs to step up its software game if it hopes to continue improving its devices. The hardware is filled with potential, but the software is continuing to hold it back.

Nonetheless, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10-inch is a very good tablet at an affordable price, if you’re willing to look past the software.
