Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 Review

Camera


Thankfully, Lenovo didn’t tinker too much with the camera app, since it bears a good combination of shooting modes and manual controls to give both novice and hardened shutterbugs something to mess around with. Launching the app takes approximately 3 seconds, with another few seconds after that for the auto-focus to kick in and actually snap a shot.

There’s nothing pretty with the quality from its 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, well, it’s more unflattering than anything else. First and foremost, details are just downright poor – to the point where photos can sometime appear speckled in tone. Secondly, colors appear dull and washed out. And finally, its low lighting performance is utterly horrendous, as it’s painfully dulled by noise and its flat details.


Knowing that it doesn’t handle still images all that well, we’re not too shocked to find it failing with its 1080p video recording quality as well. No people, it’s not just bad, but it’s actually terrible from every facet with can think of. Out of everything, details are just gone – like out the door kind of gone! Not helping things out, it’s also plagued by some heavy artifacting and bland colors. Heck, the only bright spot in everything is its clear audio recording quality.



Multimedia


All music is handled by the preloaded Google Play Music app, so there’s nothing more to say about its presentation and functionality, since it’s the same thing we find with most tablets and smartphones. Placing our attention on its dual speakers, which gives it stereo support, we notice that its volume output is lacking – not to mention being flat too with its tones.

Out of the box, it supports all of the popular video codecs out there, and on top of that, it offers Dolby Digital Plus to give it a subtle surround sound feel. Naturally, it plays 1080p videos with minimal fluff. Interestingly though, Lenovo enhances the experience by allowing us better multi-tasking by minimizing the player so it can be layered on top of something else.

$299 for this tablet is now called Super inexpensive? I think there is some mistake here.
Either is Super expensive or the price is wrong.
I think the second as the price was suppossed to be $199, which is still 50 dollars more than the Asus memopad HD 7, which has similar HW but less battery and lower materials.

You just compared a 10-inch tablet to a 7-inch. As far as 10-inch tablets go, $299 is fairly inexpensive.
