The cylinder-shaped battery/grip makes the tablet a little thick, but it looks stylish and is handy
Of course, one can simply use the Yoga Tablet 2 8 as a digital picture frame, but it would be a shame to employ the tablet in this manner, as it has a lot to offer. Its practical cylindrical grip and integrated kickstand are nice, ergonomical features. The tablet has good workmanship and decent sturdiness. However, if pressure is applied to the case, distortions are visible on the screen. We find it especially annoying that despite such a great design, the tablet has some serious flaws, like high power consumption, and the odd colors of the panel.
In terms of practical use, the Yoga... Full review
The internals and sturdiness outweigh the minuses
I recommend the $299 Yoga tablet 2 with Windows 8-inch to anyone looking for a high-end entertainment tablet. The processor, storage and display lend themselves very well to what Lenovo was trying to build: an iPad Mini competitor with a unique design and Windows on-board. I don’t even mind that there’s a single microUSB port for connecting to devices and charging. Here it just makes sense.
Like others in its family, there are some design issues that keep it from being perfect. Those buttons are in a strange place. It’d have been smarter to use a touch-sensitive Wi... Full review
Versatile design with strong overall performance
Yes, it's heavier than other 8-inch tablets, but the $229 Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 makes the most of its bulbous design. The handy kickstand design let me use this slate more often and in more places, and its battery outlasts all of its competitors. I also like the powerful speakers.
There are cheaper Android options with the same size screen. For example, the Asus MeMO Pad 8 offers more than 9 hours of endurance and costs $45 less with comparable performance. However, it has a lower-res 1280 x 800 display and weaker speakers. The Dell Venue 8 3000 is a great value because it gives y... Full review
Offer incomparable battery and design
Lenovo’s new Yoga Tablet 2 line may feature decent mid-range specs, incomparable battery life, and an intriguing design, but we can’t help but wish it were more high-end. These tablets could easily be great – but instead, they’re average. Had Lenovo bumped up the screen resolution, amped up that processor, and cleaned up the look of its Android OS, the new Yoga Tablet 2s would have had much more impact. Instead, the final impression you get is of decent, mid-range tablets that you can buy on the cheap, if you’re on a budget.
Of course, there’s... Full review
Affordable Android with a uniquely useful design
Offers a low price, powerful specs and an innovative design
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8-inch is a tablet that has flaws, but also has features that make us love it. The design of the device is both beautiful and functional, while also remaining unique in a market of increasingly similar designs. When it comes to media consumption, the display and Dolby stereo speakers of the Yoga Tablet 2 8-inch make it an obvious choice. And when it comes to battery, Lenovo has you covered with enough juice to keep you binge watching for a good long while.
Lenovo’s software is far from perfect, though, and holds the tablet back from being even bette... Full review
Unique design that stands out (literally) from the crowd
With the tablet market being entirely over-congested, building a tablet that stands out among the competition is extremely important. The Tablet 2 8-inch doesn’t offer the best specifications, build quality or software experience on the market, but for the price, this tablet offers a unique design, a great screen, and a gaming experience that can rival some of the best tablets on the market. If you can get past all of the negatives this tablet has, you may want to consider picking one up. Looking for a bigger screen size? The Yoga Tablet 2 10.1-inch can be purchased for only $20 more....

Quality hardware with a polished build of Android on board
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 gets a lot of things right. The interesting hardware design isn’t just a gimmick. It definitely adds a new dimension to usability and allows for interesting use cases. We certainly grew to like hanging the tablet off a wall to use while in the kitchen. Add to that excellent battery life and general build quality and there’s a lot to like here.
The software however is something that definitely needs to be worked on. Optimization is lacking and results in stutters and lags in general operation. The skin while functional, doesn’t do any fav... Full review
Can’t complain about the display, it has enough of the elements to make it attractive
For a brand new 10-inch tablet, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 isn’t that bad of an option when we look at its $299.99 cost. Certainly, there are several other notable tablets that have better specs, or offer a deeper experience, but its price point is undoubtedly hard to look away from. Frankly, it undercuts several of its main rivals. There aren’t as many profound changes with this year’s model, but at the end of the day, if you’re looking for a decent tablet that won’t break the bank, and has a subtle productivity element attached to it, you’ll be thoroughly...
