Lenovo has made some great improvements with this tablet compared to its predecessor. You have a much better and higher resolution (1920 x 1200) display which look great. The processor has been upgraded to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 APQ8028 quad-core SoC so it is going to be faster. And finally the older 5-megapixel camera has been upgraded to an 8-megapixel one. With these improvements Lenovo brings their Yoga Tablet 10 more up to date.
One thing that Lenovo has always done is come out with uniquely designed products and the Tablet 10 HD+ is one of those. The cylindrical base is completely out of the ordinary compared to other flat slate-like tablet, but it does serve a purpose. First it carries the tablet’s 9000mAh that will allow the tablet to last all day if not longer. Second it acts as a stand for the tablet. Not only can you have the tablet facing up towards you, you can flip it around on an angle for easier typing. It really like this design and I’m surprised more companies are not doing it. So many people by ugly cases that achieve the same thing, why not have it as part of the device so it still keeps its style. Because of this design you also get front-facing speakers which is something many tablets do not have.
One thing I was not a huge fan of on this tablet were the cameras. First the quality of both were just “ok” and nothing to really write home about. On top of that the rear camera is in a weird location (on the bottom of the device) so actually taking photos and video was a bit awkward. Although we don’t expect that many people to be using a large tablet like this for everyday photos or video.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 APQ8028 quad-core SoC will get the job done for most apps and games out there, but some of the competition has faster processors out there. Lenovo does hit the nail on the head with the pricing though, you can pick up the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ at my favorite online retailer for $249.99. If you are a fan on the stand, extra battery life and new improved screen then list tablet is worth checking out. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ a 9 out of 10 score.
