The tablet world is unquestionably ruled by Nexuses Google Nexus 10 Review and Giveaway Google has recently come out with a number of intriguing products, including the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and multiple different Chromebooks.

Whether you want to spend $200 or $400, you can find a good tablet you’ll be very happy with. This makes the tablet scene very hard for newcomers, and Lenovo is no different.


In order to truly penetrate the tablet market, a company needs to offer something different. Something that truly stands out, and will convince buyers to consider it above better-known options. This is what Lenovo tried to do with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet.

The Yoga Tablet is not your regular flat tablet — it has a round handle and built-in kickstand. According to Lenovo, “The Yoga Tablet 8 shatters the mold in tablet design to create a device that’s more versatile and comfortable to use than anything that’s come before“. Is that really true? Or can your $200 get you something better?

We’ve taken the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8-inch for a spin and now, we have the answers. And now one of you can win this $200 tablet for free! Continue reading to find out more.


The Yoga Tablet comes in several models: a 16GB 8-inch tablet ($200), a 32GB 8-inch tablet ($260) and a 16GB 10-inch tablet ($270). The one featured in this review is the 16GB 8-inch model, and for $200, it’s relatively affordable. For about the same price, you can get a 16GB Wi-Fi Nexus 7 or a 16GB Wi-Fi Kindle Fire HDX with special offers (both retail at around $229). Naturally, you can pay more to get more storage or 3G capabilities. If you’re looking at iPads, you won’t find anything cheaper than $300, for which you can get an original (non-Retina) 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Mini, or an iPad 2.

In short, the Lenovo Yoga tablet is definitely competitive when it comes to price. But what about specifications? Without getting into too many boring details, let’s just go over some of the more important things.

Android: The Yoga Tablet comes installed with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and while an update may be issued in the future, this is currently what you get. The Nexus 7 has already received its Android 4.4 (KitKat) update.

SD slot: The Yoga Tablet comes with a microSD card slot supporting up to 64GB, which means you can have much more than the onboard 16GB. Neither the Nexus 7 nor the Kindle Fire HDX have this.

Display: The Yoga Tablet’s 8-inch display resolution is 1280×800 pixels with a pixel density of 188 ppi. This is markedly inferior to both Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HDX, which both sport a 1920×1200 pixel 323 ppi display.


These are the most notable differences between the models, although it’s also worth noting that the Yoga Tablet has 1GB of RAM, while the other two come with 2GB. Both Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HDX also sport slightly faster processors.

On the other hand, both Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire models mentioned above are Wi-Fi only, while the Yoga Tablet features a micro-SIM slot. It doesn’t, however, support LTE nor does it support NFC.

Getting To Know The Lenovo Yoga Tablet


As I’ve already mentioned, the Yoga Tablet’s uniqueness comes from its unusual design. This is its major selling point, and is pretty hard to miss before you even open the box. The tablet is accompanied by the standard fare: a wall charger, a micro-USB cable, and some booklets. It also comes with two small stickers which I believe are meant for the kickstand.



The tablet itself looks almost like any other tablet, although it’s pretty hard to miss the cylindrical handle that makes the Yoga Tablet special. The handle is also home to almost all the tablet’s buttons and ports, which we’ll look at in a second.

The back of the tablet is made of plastic, but it doesn’t feel or look cheap like some other plastic-backed devices. The plastic is not slippery, and the tablet feels good in your hand. The kickstand itself is the only part that’s made of metal.



On either side of the handle, you’ll find the audio jack, and a nice, big and soft power button. The power button is very tactile, large and fun to use, which makes this tablet ideal for those who are less proficient with technology.


The tablet’s rear camera sits right next to the power button as does the micro-USB charging port. Yes, the camera is right there on the handle, which means you can’t really use it as a handle if you want to take pictures. More on that later.

The tablet’s speakers are strategically placed on both sides of the handle’s front surface, so you never inadvertently cover them when holding it on its sides.


The tablet’s metal kickstand fits tightly into the handle and back, and while there is a slot for your finger, the maneuver of opening it does take a little getting used to, and I did struggle with it a bit at first. The kickstand can be locked at various degrees, but it does stop midway and doesn’t go any further. This is as far as it will go:


The kickstand feels sturdy and strong, and no matter how much you move it back and forth, it doesn’t feel like it’s going to break or snap in your hands. The whole mechanism feels really solid.

You can use the kickstand to place the tablet in various degrees of standing position, ideal for watching videos, listening to music and displaying photos, as an extra screen on your desk, or just for chilling with the tablet without having to hold it in your hands.


You can turn the tablet around, and use the kickstand in tilt mode, which lets you place the tablet on a flat surface and browse, type or play games on it.


Using The Yoga Tablet

The tablet’s design is impressive and definitely unique. While at times it’s not as convenient to hold as a regular tablet, you’ll often find positions that will work for you, and many times these are positions that are not possible with other tablets. And then you turn it on.


It’s not that the Yoga Tablet is a horrible tablet, but for a fairly new device, I expected more. To start, the display just doesn’t look that good. I’m not comparing it to the iPad Mini Retina I’ve recently had a chance to review, but even compared with any other device in the house, it’s simply not up to par. The text seems blurry, the screen’s resolution is low compared to the screen size making elements seem huge and grainy, and colors look dull and washed out.


On a more positive note, the Yoga Tablet’s speakers are a high point. Loud and relatively clear, watching videos or listening to music on the tablet is a good experience, despite the not-so-amazing video quality it provides. Coupled with the kickstand that turns the tablet into a little portable TV, I could see myself watching stuff on this tablet all day, or using it as a pretty decent music source at a small house party.

While the Yoga tablet comes with an almost stock version of Android, apps wise, it’s pretty cluttered. This thing comes with over 30 apps pre-installed, and while many of these are Google apps such as Drive, Chrome, Google+ and Maps, there are also apps such as Skype, AccuWeather, ES File Explorer and Kingsoft Office, and Lenovo apps such as SHAREit, a power-management app, a GUI guide, and more.

The Yoga Tablet’s five megapixel rear camera is on par with the Nexus 7’s, but the camera app itself leaves something to be desired, as does the location of the camera itself on the device. My first instinct when using the tablet is always to pick it up by the handle and hold it like that, but doing that, the camera becomes unusable, as you’re going to always be covering it with your hand. In order to use the camera, you need to turn the tablet around and use it with the handle facing up, otherwise you’ll be taking photos like the one seen in the screenshot below. This makes it somewhat top-heavy and not as easy to hold.


The camera app’s interface itself is okay, offering quick switches between stills and video mode, as well as continuous capture when long-pressing the camera button. There are several modes to choose from, such as HDR, Panorama and Smile Shot, but it’s difficult to understand what some of these modes do or if they’re working at all — Smile shot never fired when someone smiled at my camera, for example.

The row of icons on top, which at first seemed like settings I can change, turned out to be just a display showing me my current settings. After trying in vain to tap these and getting no results, I found the actual setting in the three dots icon on the bottom right. There are quite a few settings you can control, but with a five megapixel camera, you’re not going to be shooting anything too breathtaking here anyway.


One thing Lenovo did try to do right is the tablet’s battery. With its 6000 mAh battery, the Yoga Tablet should offer 18 hours of use before running out. While I didn’t actually try using it for 18 hours straight, the tablet does seem to offer a pretty solid battery life.

As for general usage experience, I wasn’t too impressed. The tablet seemed to have a constant problem with Wi-Fi connection, where other devices in the house worked perfectly fine. It sometimes gave me a “loading” prompt when exiting from an app to the main launcher screen, and intensive games were not only choppy at times, but affected by the general color issue. Compared with today’s high-end tablets, the experience was simply not up to par.

So What Is The Yoga Tablet Good For?

Had the Yoga Tablet been just a regularly designed tablet, the answer would have probably been “not much”. Luckily for Lenovo, this is not the case, and the tablet’s design does give it an advantage in some cases.

If you’re an avid video watcher, but don’t care about not getting the best quality, the Yoga Tablet is great for placing on the table or couch and watching to your heart’s content. As already mentioned, it’s also a pretty decent music player due to its loud speakers. For typing and browsing, tilt mode is a pretty convenient way to work without having to hold on to the tablet.

Having said that, you can get cases for most tablets that let you do just these things. You may have to pay a bit more, but you will get a better tablet with the same standing or tilting capabilities.


While the Yoga Tablet’s performance is not the best, it might not matter to those who just want it for basic usage. It could be a great tablet for people of a more advanced age (prominent power button, easy to hold, low resolution) or for anyone who doesn’t really care about top-notch performance and display. It’s microSD slot makes it ideal if you find 16GB to be insufficient storage, and its SIM slot is a nice bonus as well, if you need to use if where there’s no Wi-Fi access.

All in all, the Yoga Tablet is a really affordable option if you’re looking for 3G capabilities and lots of storage, but you’ll pay for this affordability in performance. Make no mistake, the Yoga Tablet is a lower-end device.

Personally, I found that with an original iPad Mini in the house, I had no reason whatsoever to pick up the Yoga Tablet for anything other than writing this review. And seeing that the new Nexus 7 is an even better tablet that the original iPad Mini, and is priced almost the same as the Yoga Tablet, this is a no-brainer decision in most situations.

Should you buy the Lenovo Yoga Tablet?

With Lenovo’s excellent line of Yoga laptops and other ultrabooks, I really expected more out of the Yoga Tablet. Despite its unique design, it doesn’t really manage to be a serious contender in today’s tablet market.

Our verdict of the Lenovo Yoga Tablet:
MakeUseOf recommends: Unless you’re specifically looking for a lower-end tablet, spend a little more and get the Nexus 7.

    I own this tablet and love it. Hardly entry-level. Reasonably priced too. Like David S I think this tablet is great. I don't get all the problems the reviewer moaned about. Nexus doesn't have a microSD slot. Apple is vastly overrated and overpriced. Pop all the apps into folders and the screen is nice and tidy. Great video quality. Far superior to my previous Samsung tablet all round.

    Well, I bought one a couple of months ago - the 8 inch, after looking at a number of different tablets, and owning a Kindle Fire HD (which I eventually sold) and some other android tablets, over a period of time. Frankly, I don't recognise the tablet in this review as the one I own! I absolutely love it! It s far and away the best tablet I've tried; I don't have a problem with the screen resolution, even comparing it with the Kindle HD, and I find the colours bright and saturated. I use it for browsing the internet, watching Youtube and reading books - which it's particularly good for - the size is perfect and its light and easy to hold. I didn't like the Lenovo launcher, but soon fixed that by loading one of my own choice free from Play Store.And the battery life is amazing! I only have to charge it every three or four days, even with a lot of WIFi use. The stand is great too. I certainly didn't want to pay Apple prices, but looking at other Android options in the shop, the design (it looks fabulous!) and usability of this just stood out. I have no regrets at all and heartily recommend this little beauty!

    probably not

  4. Meelis

    Why not

  5. DebbieD
    February 15, 2014 at 4:44 am

    Considering the review outlining the pitfalls of the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8, I probably would not spend the retail asking price of $200, but at a substantial discount, this might be a good first tablet which I'm currently searching for. I love the battery and design!

  6. Kevin
    February 15, 2014 at 4:35 am

    No, I already own a nexus 7 and am very pleased with it.

  7. Sherry C
    February 15, 2014 at 4:32 am

    I think I would.

  9. Morrison
    February 15, 2014 at 4:01 am

    No. If I was buying a tablet, would spend a little extra to get more out of the device.

  10. Darren
    February 15, 2014 at 3:01 am

    Sure! Why not? Just my 2 bits to get an entry.

  11. Skataneric
    February 15, 2014 at 2:45 am

    Nope. I'd rather get a better tablet. Right now, Newegg has the Hisesne Sero 7 Pro (refurbed) for $90.

  12. Ben Schoon
    February 15, 2014 at 2:17 am

    Personally I doubt that I would. There are many better options out there.

  13. ryan Moore
    February 15, 2014 at 2:12 am

    probably not... but what's nice is the 'stand like display'

    so at the right sale price point it might be good in the kitchen or as a second 'screen' in my office.

  14. David S. de Lis
    February 14, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    Well, it depends, I not only consider the insides or performance, but in a tablet I also need to get the feeling... If it's appealing, I would consider.

  15. Angela C
    February 14, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    I would probably spend $200 on a Nexus 7 versus the Yoga tablet.

  16. paul
    February 14, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    Nope, too close to other far superior tablets wouldnt mind a free one though :)

  17. luke

  20. David
    February 14, 2014 at 9:42 pm

    I got a Nexus 7 2013 on sale during last Christmas Holiday for less. I like how Lenovo is challenging traditional design with the giant handle and kickstand. Given the inability to keep current with Android updates, the lower specs, and higher price, I would not buy the Lenovo tablet over the Nexus 7.

  21. Ron
    February 14, 2014 at 9:39 pm

    Yes I would.

  22. Narinder Chana
    February 14, 2014 at 9:28 pm

    No. There are other alternatives in this price range.

  23. E Michelle B
    February 14, 2014 at 7:53 pm

    probably use the 200 toward somethign bigger

  24. Enelram L
    February 14, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    yes I would

  25. Yash S
    February 14, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    If I'd 200$ I would have spent it on Yoga tablet for sure !!

  26. Ralph Jeio Moldez
    February 14, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    I probably won't.

  27. Valery Ramirez
    February 14, 2014 at 11:26 am

    Why not

  28. Melly R
    February 14, 2014 at 6:10 am

    Propably not.

  29. JTT
    February 14, 2014 at 4:28 am

    Yes :)

  30. Ariel Chiu
    February 14, 2014 at 4:03 am

    Probably wouldn't pay $200 for it!

  31. gayle b.
    February 14, 2014 at 3:17 am

    Yes I would purchase a Lenova Yoga Tablet 8. My Son would love a tablet and his friend has this model and it seems to fit all my son's needs.

  33. Dorothy H
    February 14, 2014 at 2:30 am

    No. I'd use the $200 to save up for a 10" tablet.

  34. Colleen C.
    February 14, 2014 at 1:55 am

    I like the size of screen and the flip out stand is really a good idea. I don't need a top of the line for my purposes so yes, i might purchase it

  35. Rose Holloway
    February 13, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    Probably not

  36. Cheyenne
    February 13, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    Probably not, but it would make a good gift if I won.,

  37. omair ahmed
    February 13, 2014 at 8:22 pm

    for my country it would have expensive but i will try my best

  44. Mike B
    February 13, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    A hundred bucks, maybe, but not two hundred. Samsung Galaxy Tab would be a better choice.

  45. Linda Short
    February 13, 2014 at 5:27 pm

    Probably not but i'd love to win it as a starter tablet.

  46. Shelly Herzhaft
    February 13, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    I think for it's capabilities it is worth the $200.00 price tag. For gaming not so good but what I need a tablet for it is worth it to me.

  47. Tomasz J
    February 13, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Probably yes.

  48. Mike
    February 13, 2014 at 3:48 pm

    At that pricepoint and anticipating improvements along the way...yes.

  49. Flore
    February 13, 2014 at 3:28 pm

    I don't believe it would be my first choice of tablet at this price...

  50. George A
    February 13, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    I don't see me using it enough for that price.

  51. George A
    February 13, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    A bit pricey, but a nice tablet.

  52. Aeman A
    February 13, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    For $200, with great design and for low-end user, i will pay for it..

  55. Paul B
    February 13, 2014 at 2:09 pm

    Probably. It's certainly not a powerhouse tablet, but it's not bad for the price.

  56. Andrew P.
    February 13, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    For the price, I would be willing to make some trade off's.

  57. Andy L
    February 13, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    $200 is a pretty decent price tag, so i won't mind.'

  58. Kristine L
    February 13, 2014 at 1:36 pm

    I would probably wait until the price drops. Just because of the decreased viewing aspect.

  59. Mat S
    February 13, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    Not for me, but maybe for one of my kids, if the price were lower.

  60. Linda F
    February 13, 2014 at 12:54 pm

    Yes Very Nice Tablet

  61. Carla

  62. Lillea

    Maybe, it looks like a nice machine.

  63. Iva
    February 13, 2014 at 8:57 am

    I would, i trust Lenovo as a brand and believe it would be worth it.

  64. Christie Pollard
    February 13, 2014 at 4:10 am

    $200 is a perfect range for a tablet.

  65. Jacson
    February 13, 2014 at 4:09 am

    for $200 is still ok to acceptable

  66. David Reynolds
    February 13, 2014 at 3:26 am

    Yes, absolutely

  67. BL.Blazy

    Yes, it looks amazing.

  72. Patrick Ireland
    February 12, 2014 at 11:03 pm

    probably not - there are other options for that price point

  73. rebecca g
    February 12, 2014 at 11:00 pm

    i would pay the $200 because of the video quality

    Might buy it for $110!

  76. Fabiana de Paula
    February 12, 2014 at 8:46 pm

    Of course it is, considering its resources the price is great!

  77. Susan Adams
    February 12, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    I'd be happy tp win the Lenovo Yoga Tablet, but in all honesty I probably wouldn't buy one. I just don't "Make Use Of" technology unless it's set in front of me :-)

  78. Tim G
    February 12, 2014 at 8:22 pm

    200? no. 100-150, maybe.

  79. Jason
    February 12, 2014 at 6:02 pm

    yes, its a decent price

  80. Mary K.
    February 12, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    Not sure - but I just need it to do basic things, so maybe.

  81. Louanne
    February 12, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    Yes, I probably would at that price.

  82. Mike D
    February 12, 2014 at 5:02 pm

    The rumour mill says google is dropping or selling off the nexus line so there maybe longer term support for this product.

  83. PeterK
    February 12, 2014 at 4:58 pm

    For $200, I'd probably buy it, but I'd be sad not to have a flashy high res screen.

  84. LisaB
    February 12, 2014 at 4:51 pm

    Tough call... probably not. The performance issues (loading screen to get to the desktop?) would worry me - how is it going to handle when it's got more stuff loaded on it and a year's worth of use?

  85. Nick T
    February 12, 2014 at 4:45 pm

    I would not pay anymore.

  86. Florence C
    February 12, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    Yes not a bad price

  87. Dinah P
    February 12, 2014 at 4:22 pm

    but of course!

  88. ASHLEA
    February 12, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    $200? No. $100 or even $150, maybe. Especially for kids.

  89. Shannon
    February 12, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    I would consider it

  90. Nuri Karamollaogl
    February 12, 2014 at 8:53 am

    I may as well ; as an addition to my already pretty portable comp. (MBA 11) I'm looking for a tablet cheaper than current Ipods.

  91. David Wilkerson

    At that price point i probably would

  92. sisyphia

    February 11, 2014 at 4:53 pm

    It's only $200. I don't have a tablet yet. This would make it a good starter tablet for me!

    Not really sure I would pay that much out for my first Tablet, considering there are lots of options out in the market with some better features and quality! However winning one would be pretty cool!

    February 11, 2014 at 7:24 am

    I probably would considering the low price and it does exactly what I would want in a tablet Love the tilting on the car driving

    100-150 dollar price is ok but 200$ is too much for it!!!

    yes, sounds great for my kids and the price tag can't be beat

  102. Judy Thomas
    February 11, 2014 at 2:42 am

    If I had $200 to spend on a tablet I might but I would have to see it and decide :)

  103. Nancy M
    February 11, 2014 at 1:45 am

    I probably would pay $200 retail

  104. Donna Doyle
    February 11, 2014 at 1:43 am

    Maybe. But I would not rush out and do it.

  105. Stephen
    February 11, 2014 at 12:41 am

    I would consider it, considering the very low price

  106. Alan M
    February 11, 2014 at 12:11 am

    Yes. In a very competitive market, at $200 dollars, I could push its potential or give someone a great gift.

  107. carlos prodigalidad

  109. Steve G
    February 10, 2014 at 11:04 pm

    $200? No way, there's better out there for the price. But free? Sure!

  110. Annette H
    February 10, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    I probably would pay $200 for it. Because it is capable of doing what I would want tit to.

  111. dee
    February 10, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    if it was in the 100-150 dollar price bracket I would pay that much, but 200 seems to be overpriced

    February 10, 2014 at 9:33 pm

    Retail? Definitely not retail.

  113. Charlie

    The SD card slot is a big plus, but there are better budget tablets out there, IMHO

  114. Jayendran
    February 10, 2014 at 8:51 pm

    Not $200 for this

  115. Kegan Hall

  116. chantelle james

    Based on this review, I would not pay $200 for this tablet

  117. Francesco F

    Absolutely no! The iPad mini would be great for me!

  118. tc

    not so sure i would

  119. George Papadache
    February 10, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    I got robbed at the beginning of this year, so such a tablet would come in handy :)

  121. Lorina Padgett

    If I had extra money I would buy it for my adult daughter.

  122. Sachin G

    Considering the design, Yes I would.

  123. Christina Ferguson

    NO I would not pay $200.00 for this tablet.

  124. Divesh K
    February 10, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    yes I would buy Lenovo Yoga tablet if I have $200

  125. Daniel Hershcovich
    February 10, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    Maybe. It would be nice to have a compact tablet for movies while traveling.

  126. Sampath B
    February 10, 2014 at 3:51 pm

    With those pitfalls . Hell no i wont waste my money on this piece.

    But i would take it. If i win this contest :)

  127. Peter Trott
    February 10, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    I'd have to take more time and compare it to other tablets that are available. But the video makes it look very attractive, so I'd probably pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 for it.

  128. Lesley
    February 10, 2014 at 3:38 pm

    Based on the review, I think I'd have to try it out in the store first before I decide whether this tablet is worth buying. For $200, it may be fine for my needs.

  129. Parijat M
    February 10, 2014 at 3:36 pm

    I MIGHT pay $200 for this. I know that it isn't exactly a powerful tablet, but the kickstand-thing is really cool and useful.

  130. Candy Nickison
    February 10, 2014 at 3:34 pm

    Nice size and ease of use.

  131. seerat Amin

  132. Wessie Emmert
    February 10, 2014 at 3:01 pm

    I would totally pay 200 for it (if I had it) because of its stationary and mobile nature, it would make a great "learning game tablet" for my 2-year-old

  133. D-J Russell
    February 10, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    No, I have a Nexus 7 & would buy the same again if I was looking, as I'm very happy with it.

  134. Shawnna Kellam
    February 10, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    possibly, I would use it primarily to read so the Cons wouldn't matter much.

  135. Mike McAteer
    February 10, 2014 at 2:29 pm

    decent tablet, but I wouldn't spend $200 on it. I'd rather drop more bank and get something higher-end.

  136. ??????? ?
    February 10, 2014 at 1:42 pm

    if i could afford it , yes I would buy it !!

  137. Michael Hurst
    February 10, 2014 at 1:39 pm

    I think it's a neat tablet, and I can see many use's for it, like watching netflix or reading or playing a game, I might buy it but not sure, would like to play a bit in person to decide, Thanks for a chance though!

  138. Meriem A
    February 10, 2014 at 1:37 pm

  141. Angeli Mae Aquino

  142. Chatinai C
    February 10, 2014 at 11:51 am

    I don't think I will buy one. I would much prefer nexus 7 (2013).

  144. Prateek Khare
    February 10, 2014 at 8:06 am

    For $200 I'd say yes!! If I'm just going to use it to read ebooks or watch videos on the go, OK but there are better ones for less than $50 more but why pay more for what I'd need it for? Of course if it's free for sure I'd use it! I think it would be a good introduction to tablets, then you can see if you want more bells and whistles or if this is good enough for you.

  145. Mark D
    February 10, 2014 at 5:01 am

  152. Pierre B

  153. Elizabeth K

  166. pceasies

    It might not be the best tablet performance wise, but I think the build quality combined with some custom ROMs and tweaking could result in a great experience.

  167. Nero T
    February 9, 2014 at 2:58 am

    Love the kickstand of this tablet, it's unique and very useful. Although I don't like the camera placement, the display is not sharp but the good battery life and the loud speaker could convince me to buy it.

  168. Alan Tong
    February 9, 2014 at 2:54 am

    Probably not.

  169. Alex

  170. Giovanny Leon

  171. Grigas

    200$ isin't that much for a tablet, so i would buy it.

  173. kevin

  192. Tarun
    February 8, 2014 at 4:25 am

  194. Ann

    I might buy it at that price. Would have to see it, first, before the final decision would be made.

    If I had an extra $200 in my pocket, yes I would consider purchasing the Lenovo Yoga tablet. I've used the iPad and I don't care for the fact that you can't really download and store files on the device, whereas the Yoga offers storage capabilities through the micro-SD card slot, and with the Android OS the machine will allow the user to download and store files. Given the reasonable price and storage capabilities (not to mention the fact that I like Lenovo and am a die-hard ThinkPad owner), I would purchase the Yoga hands-down over an iPad.

  199. Sammer A

  203. steve dzielak
    February 7, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Since I have NO interest in being locked into/limited to a 4G mobile device, a good tablet would be a nice complement to a laptop.

  204. Spencer A
    February 7, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    I would consider it, mostly because of the (mostly) stock OS and ergonomics.

  205. Mary G

    • Tracy Morin
      February 7, 2014 at 5:18 pm

      I would consider it to be a back up unit. Pricing would be more fair at $130.00 in my opinion.

    From the review, I'd say better off with another device and a keyboard stand, that way you have a proper keyboard and a stand.
    The "Yoga" feature is not as cool on this as it is on the laptop / tent stand / tablet convertibles - on this, it's just a built-in stand.

  214. Sarit Amar

    I don't know, i like the stand/tilt feature but the graphics really put me off paying that much and getting a washed up image. I guess I wouldn't, I would buy something else if I was paying even if it was more money, after all they are sort of an investment. :)

  217. Sonny David Huab

  223. Carolyn H
    February 7, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    I'm on the fence, but probably yes. I like the handle & their tilt mode. Since I won't be playing video games on it, it would probably be worth the price.

  228. Cassie S
    February 7, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    I'd consider it. The tilt actually does look like it would be useful for movie watching, which is pretty much the only thing we use our current tablet for. Have a Galaxy Note 10.1 right now, and even with a good case it has some design qualities that make movie watching a PITA (like if you have it plugged in, then the case pushes up against the volume button constantly). Big fan of Lenovo too and I'm always pleased with their devices.

    I won't hesitate paying this amount for a Lenovo Yoga, I am a fan of this brand, my smartphone is also a Lenovo. I am happy with it's features. I already have a tablet, and I don't use it very often, so at this moment another tablet will not make me happier :)
    I would like to win this giveaway though, because I could change my tablet and give the actual one to my wife. So, wish me luck!

    I would pay $200 retail price for the Lenova Yoga Tablet 8 .

  245. Shyam Assoldekar
    February 7, 2014 at 3:30 am

    Yes I would pay the $200 retail Price for the Tablet.

  246. Ssstan
    February 7, 2014 at 3:27 am

    I already bought one...the comparison to a Apple mini retina is just plain stupid; is it $200 as well? Perhaps you could have went up against the Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ and made your point.

  247. Anthony
    February 7, 2014 at 3:21 am

    wouldn't pay retail for it, hence the participation in this contest :)

    perhaps i'll buy it for my parents if i will not win it :). the kickstand, battery capacity, microSD slot, 3G, convinient power button - i think it's worth it. top performance and latest android version are not so important things. every few month or even weeks some new top device is released, you never could be an owner of top device for a long time. so this race is senseless.

    I certainly would purchase for that price.

  255. Konstantinos

    I would definately NOT pay 200$ for this tablet!

  256. Shirley L

    No, I would rather pay $100 more for an iPad Mini.

  257. Jeff H.

    yes, $200 is fairly cheap!

    I think I would have to try it out first before I gave an honest answer... $200 seems a little steep though.

  260. Rick
    February 6, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    No, priced too high for what you get!

  261. Ismael R
    February 6, 2014 at 8:20 pm

    I probably wouldn't purchase, myself, but if I won it, it certain wouldn't go unused or unappreciated.

  262. William Gould
    February 6, 2014 at 7:00 pm

    It seems a little overpriced from what you have described!

  263. Nichole S
    February 6, 2014 at 6:22 pm

    I would've if I didn't see this review first. It seems like an okay tablet just needs a lower price point.

  264. Sandy C
    February 6, 2014 at 6:11 pm

    Yes, I would! For $200, I think I could get my money's worth from it, I don't have high-demand needs! Great review!

  267. Lisa B
    February 6, 2014 at 5:13 pm

    Yes, $200 is fair for the features it offers.

  268. Natalie Y
    February 6, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    I would buy it if it were under 100 dollars because I don't have enough money.

  269. Mark O
    February 6, 2014 at 3:22 pm

    Lenovo makes quality stuff. But I'd be more likely to spend $200 on a Google Nexus product than on this tablet.

  270. Christine F.
    February 6, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    No. But if I win it, that will be great!

    February 6, 2014 at 11:54 am

    Maybe but i haven't liked it much so i might go for a Google Nexus.

  283. Edmund S

    No! I know for a fact that the Dell Venue 8 Android tablet has similar specs, but better display and better processor.

  284. Urko
    February 6, 2014 at 8:34 am

    I wouldn’t buy it for myself, as I would prefer a more advanced tablet, but I would buy it for a kid or even my dad.

  285. Joe
    February 6, 2014 at 8:31 am

    No. I would not pay 200 for a sub-par tablet. I just got a pretty nice Travel Tek one for a lot less.

  286. Stephen D

    yea its worth it , but the way I see it is if you are going to put some money in to something then put a little more into and get a really good item. I can't afford them but thats what I think.

  291. Franz Iulian
    February 6, 2014 at 7:22 am

    Nope...maybe 150.

  292. Richard G

    I like the design but the screen resolution is a big deal breaker.

  293. Crax P
    February 6, 2014 at 6:47 am

    No, i wouldn't. There are other tablets out there that offer better performance and quality for the same price. Still, some nice and intriguing stuff here and awesome review, as usual.

  294. Joe phillips
    February 6, 2014 at 6:25 am

    yes, Lenovo rocks

  296. Peter H
    February 6, 2014 at 5:23 am

    No. I need a bigger screen for my failing eyesight. The 10" at $300 would be more suitable.

  297. Bienvenido C. Masaluñga Jr.
    February 6, 2014 at 5:15 am

    I basically eyeing for this tablet, but thanks for the review, I'll think about it much better. But if I won this giveaway, I'll definitely use it away. :)

  298. David Alexander McDonald
    February 6, 2014 at 5:05 am

    I'd probably pick up another tablet, perferbly something with a little more oomph, and with dual cameras.

  299. Rajnish Ranjan Prasad
    February 6, 2014 at 4:57 am nexus will be a better choice

  300. Muhammad Hadi N
    February 6, 2014 at 4:08 am

    Based on its specification, maybe not.

  301. Michelle S
    February 6, 2014 at 3:59 am

    No I wouldn't. I would save that $200 for an iPad.

  302. Alexandru Rusu
    February 6, 2014 at 3:50 am

    yes,very pretty price.iPad Mini is $300!

  303. Oswaldo Bellido
    February 6, 2014 at 3:19 am

    So far, I've had a $100 7-inch tablet, an iPad 2, and a $200 9-inch dual core tablet. The iPad 2 is still the better choice to me. So no, I wouldn't go for this Lenovo Yoga tablet. It needs more power, and if it costs $100 more, so be it.

  304. Hiew Y
    February 6, 2014 at 3:15 am

    Based of the review of repeated opined "mediocre" ... I probably won't buy it.

  307. Mouad K
    February 6, 2014 at 1:47 am

    200 $ ? yep i think it deserves that price .

  308. Harmon Abrahamson
    February 6, 2014 at 1:38 am

    No. Not worth $200.

  309. Yedavilli S

  313. Jasmin

    Maybe not. I can't afford one. If i do have the money definitely buying it, i like the built in stand :)

  314. DieSse
    February 6, 2014 at 12:49 am

    A Chromebook suits me for what I want on the move (plus a nexus 'phone). I'd like to win this for my wife, but if I had to buy one for her, I think I could get better, cheaper.

  315. Charlita M
    February 6, 2014 at 12:41 am

    Yep absolutely -- It would surpass my Chinese-made knock off tablet that's sketchy in performance at best.... paid under $100 for it, and the old saying IS right, you DO get what you pay for. So with the extra $100 invested in the Lenovo Yoga, I'd expect the performance to be 2x as good as what I've got right now.

  316. qwer0
    February 6, 2014 at 12:34 am

    No.. just no

  317. Frederick D
    February 5, 2014 at 11:31 pm

    I would not buy it. For that money a Nexus 7 is a much better investment.

  318. Mike Houlden
    February 5, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Yes i would consider paying nearly 200 for the tablet.

  319. Larry

    No. (Could not copy question)

  320. Shellie
    February 5, 2014 at 10:44 pm

    Probably wouldn't buy one - but I would absolutely use a free one!! :)

    Yes, I would!

  322. Guillermo Ivan Jimenez Ruvalcaba

    I don't think so

  323. Elaine S

    This would be nice for my kid to watch videos on.

  324. Joanna
    February 5, 2014 at 10:17 pm

    Yes, I would pay $200 for the Lenovo Yoga Tablet. Because I don't own a tablet,but would love to win one.

  325. Brad M
    February 5, 2014 at 10:09 pm

    No. But it does look useful

  326. Henry K
    February 5, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Really like the form, but the resolution is the deal breaker.

  327. Michelle S
    February 5, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    I wouldn't buy it for myself, as I would prefer a more advanced tablet, but I would buy it for a kid or even my dad.

  328. Robert Bennett
    February 5, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    Maybe 129-149, maybe. $200 is too close to a Kindle Fire HDX price.

  329. Julie L
    February 5, 2014 at 9:33 pm

    Not sure. I love the design but I really wish they'd upgrade the screen

  330. Adrian O.

    No, i would not.

  331. Moritz M.
    February 5, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    I think there are even cheaper tablets with the same or better functionality - so I would'nt spend 200$ on the Yoga Tab.

  332. Louis W
    February 5, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Probably not, I would rather get a Nexus

  333. Lowell Ergen

  337. bioadam

    $200 is pretty good price for a tablet, but then again, I would rather put that $200 toward an iPad.

  338. Tom W
    February 5, 2014 at 8:21 pm

    I wouldn't pay full price for a Lenovo tablet. I use Youtube a lot, and I think the colour quality and resolution would annoy me. The "Lenovo" logo along the bottom edge would also annoy me because, as soon as you rotate the tablet, the orientation of the logo is wrong.

  339. Dragos B
    February 5, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    Yes I would!

  340. frank
    February 5, 2014 at 7:53 pm

    No because of the resolution of the screen

  341. Olga
    February 5, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    I would pay that price

  342. Ari T
    February 5, 2014 at 7:43 pm

    might get it refurb

  343. Hans
    February 5, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    I wouldn't buy this but if someone were to just hand it to me for <$50 I might go for it. Looks kinda bad compared to, say, my nexus 7 2012.

  344. Jesse Schembri
    February 5, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    Maybe I would, but I'd have to look at the screen quality with my own eyes first.

  345. Spencer Rosengarten
    February 5, 2014 at 7:20 pm

    I'm torn at the $200 range. I like having power behind the device, ergonomics and design not withstanding. I think I'm going to have to wait for the next Yoga or for whatever the competition comes out with.

  346. Rajani S
    February 5, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Probably Not

  354. Catherine R

    • Maureen G
      February 5, 2014 at 7:27 pm

      I might. I don't care about the "washed out color" The rounded handle and kickstand are features I like.

  355. William Fleet
    February 5, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    I would probably not buy it at the $200 price point, but if the price comes down to $150 or less, it might be a deal.

  356. Dmitriy S
    February 5, 2014 at 6:06 pm

    Probably not.

  357. Karl Kanalz
    February 5, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    I purchased a Lenovo Yoga 10 tablet (32 GB) from Lenovo's on-line site and a couple of days later, bought their "Sheath & Film" (leather carrying case and screen protector) and their matching "Keyboard Cover". A mistake all-'round, in my opinion. Here's why:
    1) The outer surface of the Yoga tablet is very "slippery" and not easily carried in one's bare hands. I recommend the leather carrying case. In addition, the screen's "auto-rotate" capability doesn't kick in until AFTER the power-on/self test and the tablet comes "alive".

    2) The keyboard cover, when used as a "cover" on the Yoga does NOT fit positively, and will easily slide off if the Yoga is picked up by the round battery housing! It needs to have some kind of positive latch or gripping method to prevent this. The first keyboard I received would not type an apostrophe ( ' ), but produced a comma ( , ) instead. The comma produced a comma, though. Lenovo customer service said I had to send both the keyboard AND the tablet to their repair center in Grapevine, Texas. They've had it since mid-January with no results. When I eventually get it back, I'm going to ask for a refund on the keyboard junk.

    By the way, the instructions for pairing the keyboard cover with the tablet (bluetooth) have ABSOLUTELY NO RESEMBLANCE to the real procedure needed. If you aren't familiar with bluetooth, then you'll have a hard time getting the two to pair-up!

    Otherwise, the tablet is great and the leather sheath is great. Everything else sucks!

  358. Daichi
    February 5, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    Meh it sounds pretty cool so probably would pay for it

    probably if i could afford it

  362. Chris Coppenbarger
    February 5, 2014 at 5:59 pm

    Probably not. I'd probably go with a Samsung or Google.

  363. Mark Messinger
    February 5, 2014 at 5:53 pm

    $200? Maybe I'd pay that. This does offer some advantages over, say, the Nexus 7 tablet. So, maybe. . .

  364. Eibert D
    February 5, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    no, I would not!

  365. Ramon Martinez
    February 5, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    Yep, I would pay $200 for the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 taking into account on how I would use it. For just browsing the web, assessing email accounts, updating status and like tasks, it would be worth it.

  366. David H
    February 5, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    No. because I have a Lenovo Yoga which is better.

  367. Judy
    February 5, 2014 at 5:32 pm

    Would not buy - would put the money towards a better one.

  368. Chris
    February 5, 2014 at 5:28 pm

    buy for $200?
    Probable: many cool functions and basic tablet features

  369. Alis T
    February 5, 2014 at 5:22 pm

    If I could afford the two hundred dollars, yes, I would pay it.

    $200 is a lot to pay for a tablet, so probably would not.

    Probably not

  374. paul
    February 5, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    no. there are better for just about the same money.

  375. Tate S
    February 5, 2014 at 5:07 pm

    most likely not, but for 140~150 price range, maybe

  376. Daniel Perez
    February 5, 2014 at 5:04 pm

    The last Lenovo tablet I had died for no apparent reason, so I'd be leery of buying one but if I won I'd be happy.

  377. Jon

    Not likely.

  378. MarkTGT
    February 5, 2014 at 5:01 pm

    Probably would pass. Have two mediocre tablets now, but for free? Meh.

  379. Ahmad Shawki Hasan
    February 5, 2014 at 4:41 pm

    For the 8 inches, yes. But if I wanna get a 7 inches, then I'd be better off with Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HDX or Tegra Note 7...

  380. CathyH
    February 5, 2014 at 4:38 pm

  386. Anthony
    February 5, 2014 at 4:12 pm

    Given the reviews, I imagine the price will drop - at which point this might become a good buy. The form factor, and good sound are both major pluses - and when kitkat arrives that could improve the software experience..

  387. Don
    February 5, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    For $200 (or that neighborhood) I'd pick up the Nexus 7

  388. Dharmik M

  389. Larry

  394. Mark Wood
    February 5, 2014 at 3:30 pm

    No I wouldn't pay that sort of money for that spec if I'm being completely honest.

  401. Mariz D
    February 5, 2014 at 3:15 pm

    I will not pay $200 for it, but I'd gladly take it for free if I win here. :)

  402. Netsanet

    $29 more and you can get a Nexus 7 with regular updates of Android and FullHD screen!! I would rather choose that if I had to choose to spend my money!! But, its free here, so why not?

  405. Edmarjohn S
    February 5, 2014 at 2:59 pm

    no not really because it lacks some power and i use my current tablet for gaming than any other application

  406. Navin

  407. kimberly williams

    I wouldn't be able to buy it; that's why I am entering this contest.

  408. Debbie F

    Yes that seems to be the going price for tablets.

  409. Sam T

  412. Em Robin
    February 5, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    $200 is overpriced.

  413. Lewis B
    February 5, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    As badly as I want a tablet, I would have a tough time paying $200 for a tablet with this many flaws. Especially since the Galaxy Tab 3 8in is going for about $170. I would wait an extra few weeks and buy a Nexus 7 for $20 more.

  414. Yashtir Gopee
    February 5, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    At $120, I can get a 7 inch tablet of totally the same specifications except the resolution which is 1280x800. So I would definitely not buy that Lenovo tablet.

  415. Cin Rupp
    February 5, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Probably not. Too many other options out there.

  416. Barbara K
    February 5, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Based on other prices I have seen then the $200 really isn't that bad so depending on how easy it would be to navigate (I'm a novice) I just might spend the money.

  417. Tomerco
    February 5, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    Actually looking for a new tablet and it does look like a good value.

    In the event that a job very glad I bought it....

  419. Ben

    Not a chance. If I was going to buy a tablet I'd save my money for something quality.

  420. christy
    February 5, 2014 at 2:35 pm

    I might buy one. Honestly I would need to touch it before I bought it. No matter how much I read about something hands on experience is always the best for me.

  421. Monsi S
    February 5, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    If I need it, yes i definitely will!

  422. Andy M
    February 5, 2014 at 2:32 pm

    $200 seems pretty sure.

  423. John Vincent C. Pedregoza
    February 5, 2014 at 2:31 pm

    I wouldn't. I cant afford it, and there are other options. But for a giveaway, well, who wouldn't want one? It's battery is one of the best selling points, but not the specs. The micro SD card slot is a plus too.

  424. Lejla

    February 5, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    Not at all

  429. Mary T
    February 5, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    would be a great starter tablet - maybe for an older or younger individual who didn't expect a lot of bells and whistles. I would definitely buy it for that use.

  430. Victor G
    February 5, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    Pretty cool!

  431. Brian D

    Hey I wouldn't buy it at $200 but I'll be more than happy to accept it if I win!

  433. Connie McGowan

    I would buy it if I got a senior discount!

  437. Alexandru M.
    February 5, 2014 at 2:07 pm

    It's a nice, decent tablet and comes with some interesting features. But you are right, it's a bit pricey at $200 considering you can get better with just a slight effort. But who knows maybe the next versions will be even better :)

    Great review as usual and thanks for the giveaway!

  438. ryan
    February 5, 2014 at 2:01 pm

  439. Christian Ampoloquio
    February 5, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    $200 for Lenovo Yoga 8 Tablet is not bad.. Lenovo is a well-known brand and you are sure with it's quality. I might purchase it.

  440. Eloisa Nuque
    February 5, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    For $200? For a gamer like me, definitely not. There are more better tablets out there that is worth considering. But, if this one is for free? I wouldn't mind the price.

  441. Marissa Tay
    February 5, 2014 at 1:55 pm

  445. Mai Tran

    With so few features and low specs, 200€ is quite ok price compared to many other high spec tablets which cost 500-700$.

  446. daniel
    February 5, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    If I could find it on sale, maybe $150 I'd buy it.

  447. Maria

    probably not

  448. Andrei B

  449. Victor N
    February 5, 2014 at 1:47 pm

    I'd really like a Lenovo Yoga, and the price is not that high considering the ergonomics boost and nice approach to design. I'd actually love it, and happily spend $200, if I'd ever had the budget and availability in my country.

  450. Descending A
    February 5, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    I would buy it if the screen was 10"

  451. Andy L
    February 5, 2014 at 1:45 pm

    not at $200

  452. Anush
    February 5, 2014 at 1:44 pm

    I think it is quite a competitive price, will definitely consider buying it.

  453. Ramon Miguel Canillas
    February 5, 2014 at 1:43 pm

    I might end up buying it. I'm not really a sucker for high def screens. Plus, I like the fact that it has a stand, which makes it easier for reading ebooks/ecomics and watching movies, which is why I'd get a tab in the first place. I'm not one to play games on tabs, so, yeah, this'll be fine.

  454. Penny B
    February 5, 2014 at 1:43 pm

    I sure would. It's good value for all the features.

  455. Tammy H

    Probably, yes

  456. Tim

  458. Michael P

    Can't.. too expensive.. I'll go with a Tegra Note 7 instead...

  459. Sayed I

    Most likely. For the price, the pitfalls are not very large.

  460. Simon M
    February 5, 2014 at 1:35 pm

    I'd shop around to see if I can get it cheaper, or I could win one ;)

  461. Chris

    Yes I would. it looks nice

  462. Brady W

  470. carmelo
    February 5, 2014 at 10:09 am

    maybe $200 is a bit too much for this product.
    But around $100 would be a fair price.

  471. Andriy K

  481. Nick Gonzalez
    February 5, 2014 at 7:58 am

    At $200, I feel that I wouldn't even consider buying it. If it was around $100, I probably might if I needed a portable device that could play flash games.

  482. Do hoon
    February 5, 2014 at 7:49 am

  483. Rick Y

  493. Junil M

    I don't think so. there are too many pitfalls mostly in gaming which is mostly people do on tablets other than social networking.

  494. J
    February 5, 2014 at 6:12 am

    I might buy it for $200. But $125 would be a definite yes!

  498. Phillip

    I'd buy a Nexus 7 most likely.

  501. Akshay Lakhmani

    yes, i will pay :)

  502. Db
    February 5, 2014 at 4:44 am

    It seems they have some rough edges to address. I would opt for a Nexus 7 or Transformer at this point....but would keep an eye on the Yoga as a future prospect that might fit a business or personal need.

  503. Mark M
    February 5, 2014 at 4:42 am

    for a price tag of 200, I would surely be tempted...but considering it's competition, it would be a hard sell

  504. Kamlesh Y
    February 5, 2014 at 4:34 am

    Yes I'd pay that much.

  505. Mandip D

    I will pass this one coz I am a heavy user!

  506. Katherine A

    Despite its flaws, it'd be a great backup for my laptop (especially if I win it!)

  507. art nelson

    Yes. I think it is still a good option for the price

    $200? Sure. Why not...

  510. Adly A

    Not gonna lie though, I really like the design but I rather choose Nexus tablet.

  511. Larry J

  520. Elizabeth T

    I probably won't especially considering other tablets that have more features, but at a lesser price.

  521. Sean M
    February 5, 2014 at 2:04 am

    $200 is too much for this tablet

  522. Stéphane M

    I do not think so.

  523. Athena
    February 5, 2014 at 1:46 am

    Maybe. 200 isn't so much that I would totally regret it if I don't like it, but enough to know it's not total crap either

  524. Janine M
    February 5, 2014 at 1:43 am

    I would buy it for my daughter to use for school.

  525. Mac Slade Christensen
    February 5, 2014 at 1:42 am

    It sounds like a decent device, but I'd probably still go with the nexus 7, or Galaxy Note 8.

    Maybe not but it looks cool :-)

  527. Chris K
    February 5, 2014 at 1:31 am

    I look at a tablet at this point for only certain things. Working Wi-Fi is key to a properly functioning tablet. How else will at all work? No, I wouldn't spend this much money on it for that reason. I love the concept and wish that something might improve of this.

  528. ?Ubomír Š
    February 5, 2014 at 1:29 am

    Maybe I can spend the money better... but who nows...

  529. Joseph Ji
    February 5, 2014 at 1:25 am

    For some sub $200 I think is the proper price range for this. Good thing this is not the only tablet out there. Yes Nexus 7 is a great option.

  532. Greg O

    not sure

  548. Sharon Haas
    February 5, 2014 at 12:29 am

    I think I would. Lenova has always satisfied me with their work horse offerings so I think this might be a good tablet for on the go - at that price I wouldn't be upset if it got left somewhere and I'd have something usuable along for the trip. At home I'd probably use it to move my music room to room with me if the sound is as good as the reviewer led me to believe.

  549. Dan R
    February 5, 2014 at 12:28 am

    Nope, I would buy one with a bigger screen.

    $200 may seem a bit pricey for an 8" but still quality 10" tablets are running at a considerably higher cost. I would have to test it before I could make such a decision.

    It just needs more CPU and memory power. I would say yes in a second if it did. It has a great design but it lacks where it really counts.
    So no buy, not this time, but V2 will definitely be looked at.

  585. Sharon A.
    February 4, 2014 at 10:47 pm

    I find the kickstand the most appealing feature. It needs a better screen though.

  586. Alex
    February 4, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    I don't understand why this is being compared to an iPad, it's an android tablet, a low end budget one at that. Nexus 7 is barely on par with this, the Kindle HDX with all it's problems is still a good comparison for this, but Apple.....should only be compared with Apple, simply because they cater to idiots who need ultra simplicity. With this being an android, it has too "complex" of an interface to be in the same demographic as aforementioned iPad, and this lacks the quality of performance/design to adequately compare a flagship device.

    Not bad, but probably i wouldn't buy this tablet for 200$

  616. Stephen G.
    February 4, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    I would not purchase this Yoga tablet for $200.

    I do like the built-in kickstand. I own, and for years used daily, Nokia N800 and N810 Internet Tablets, as well as a Nokia N900 phone. Those devices taught me the value of good, built-in kickstands, the Internet Tablets by having good ones, and the N900 by having a bad one.

    Additionally, the front-facing speakers on the Yoga are nice. Too many tablets point sound away from the listener.

    And I would appreciate having Yoga's micro SD and micro SIM card slots in my current daily-use table, a Kindle Fire HD. I welcome the option to expand the storage capabilities of any device, and the option of using the micro SIM slot would be nice to have, particularly if it could be used with T-Mobile USA's free 200 MB/month plan.

    In the end though, the low-dpi screen of the Yoga is disappointing, and my Kindle Fire HD, paired with a rotating case, provides most of the viewing angles of the built-in stand of the Yoga, plus the ability to stand the tablet up in a portrait orientation. And as I'd want a case to protect the screen of the Yoga anyway, I wouldn't be saving money by skipping an accessory purchase.

    I do hope Lenovo keep at it and release a revised, improved Yoga Android tablet. They've shown they're able to design and build interesting features that set their devices apart from the pack, and I believe the tablet space needs good competitors to shake it up.

    For that price I could buy better tablets but I am very curious about the kickstand.

  620. Harindu Ishan
    February 4, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    probably not!

  621. Greg
    February 4, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    Based on the video review I would not spend $200 for this tablet unless I had a basic use for it. Maybe if it was less, but I would probably buy a Nexus or Samsung.

  622. Sean O
    February 4, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    Nexus 7 (2nd gen) is still the king of Android tablets.

  623. Wei Lian L
    February 4, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    Probably just for low spec usage such as reading, checking emails, facebook and watching videos.

  624. Mihir C

  628. Ulpi E

  639. Tomas P

    Nexus 7 does have its foibles too and it is more expensive in Europe. But yeah, I would probably wait for either the price to go down or for some other tablet.

    I haven't gone done the tablet route yet. Not really found any really necessity to buy one (nor the money at the moment). So right now it doesn't appeal. If I went for any, I want something with more power and GBs.
