Lenovo has made some right moves when it comes to Android smartphones but we have yet to see a truly impressive tablet from the manufacturer. Their latest crop of Android tablets include the unique Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 , an 8 inch tablet which has a very different design than we are used to. So how does the tablet compare against other tablets of the same price range? Let’s find out.
The first thing you will notice about this tablet is the design. It is not a completely flat tablet, it has a protruding circular bulge on the right side of the screen in portrait mode. The cylindrical protrusion allows you to grip the tablet fairly comfortably in one hand without the fear of dropping it. One would think that the cylinder would house a bigger battery than usually but that is not the case here.
Spec-wise the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 has an 8 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. This makes the pixel density a bit lower at 189ppi. It is not that bad but a higher resolution would have certainly benefited the 8 inch tablet. Taking a look inside reveals a 1.3 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 processor and Adreno 304 GPU. There is surprisingly only 1 GB of RAM on board. I know Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 is a budget tablet but 1 GB these is just not enough. The camera is an 8 MP one which also rotates so you will at least have great selfie quality. There are 2 front facing speakers with Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound technology.
All in all Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 is a good budget tablet. The inclusion of a built in stand and front facing speakers makes it an ideal tablet for video watching. Apart from that, the tablet doesn’t excel at anything else.
