Reviews Word on the street for the Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 8-inch


8.0
The IPS display is sharp and bright, and the 1920 x 1200 resolution is more than adequate for a tablet this small.

8.0
Overall, we’re content with the results, thanks to its good looking details, lush-looking color reproduction, and decent 398 nit brightness.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The Yoga Tablet 2's display looks as good as some premium tablets that cost $300, and colors are pleasingly saturated.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
It has a somewhat standard main home screen, and a sideways swipe takes you to the application palette rather than further home screens.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
We can’t complain about the display, it has enough of the elements to make it attractive.

Operating System

The silver tablet (Android models are silver and Windows models are black) looks good enough to count as modern decor in your kitchen or study.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
We've reviewed the 13" Android model (which adds "Pro" to the name) and the 13" Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows, and this time we're focusing on the popular 8" size with Android.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
Lenovo Android tablets have been distinctly low to mid-range and that's changed with the second generation Yoga (not to be confused with Lenovo's Yoga Windows convertible laptops).

Operating system

We're not keen on Lenovo's launcher software, that's easily remedied with a third party app.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
The tablet has enough horsepower to support multi-window multitasking without lagging.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
Lenovo offers a small set of apps that can run in floating windows for a taste of multitasking.

Camera

The tablet has a respectable rear 8 megapixel camera with BSI and an f/2.2 lens.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
Some improvements make its image quality acceptable this time.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
It can't compete with the better camera phones on the market, but as tablet cameras go, it's not bad at all.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)

Apps

It's fast enough to play current 3D games and it multitasks well.
by MobileTechReview (Feb, 2015)
The sole and native music player is the Google Play Music app, so there’s nothing new here that we haven’t seen or experienced elsewhere.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2014)
Needless to say, it handles most tasks with ease, but we wouldn’t go far to say that it’s the best thing for gaming.
