The lights are kept on by a 6,200 mAh battery.
The YOGA Tab 3 10” sports a 10.1” HD display with the same 800 x 1280 resolution (~149 PPI) and is also equipped with a 1.3 GHz, quad-core Qualcomm SoC, and 1 GB of RAM. Its internal storage is also 16 GB, expandable via microSD up to 128 GB, and its battery is larger, at 8,400 mAh capacity.
