Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ Review

General Usage
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, although we hear there will be an update to Android 4.4 KitKat soon. Lenovo has made a few minor changes to the Android operating system such as removing the app drawer, so all of your applications will appear on the home screens which you will have to scroll through. There is also a special menu bar which comes up when you tap an icon with three little dots in the lower right of the screen. This menu allows you to add more home screens, change the theme and wallpaper, change the scrolling and transition effects and has a shortcut to the tablet settings menu.


The Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ also has a split screen mode, which allows you to have up to 4 apps on the screen at one time. When you hit the app switching button on the bottom navigation it brings up a thumbnail list of open apps. Now if you press on an app it opens it up full screen, but if you drag it up to the top screen it will take over half, a third or quarter of the screen. You can also re-size the different windows to your liking.


Lenovo does include a few of their own apps with the tablet, they include SHAREit, SYNCit HD and SECUREit HD. SHARE it allows you to share files with other Android devices, PCs and other phones with a WiFi-direct connection. SYNCit will back up your messages and contacts to the cloud. Finally SECUREit will show you how much memory you are using and has the ability to mass close apps, allows you to have an ad blocker for in-app ads, has an app manager and has a permissions section.


Of course with any portable device you are going to want to know how the cameras are. The rear 8-megapixel camera is very sharp and photos from this camera turned out very well. The position of the camera makes shooting in landscape mode very weird though. Here are four shots taken with the 8-megapixel camera. Click for full-size images.

I also shot a video using a rear camera in 720p mode.

The front-facing 2-megapixel camera is not really made to shoot photos, more to be used for video and Skype calls. I did use it to make a few Skype video calls and everyone said I looked and sounded just fine. I also took a few photos as you can see below, click for full-size images.
