Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review
Photos come out decent looking with the camera, but you can forget about shooting video with it.
Despite receiving the “Pro” status, the tablet doesn’t get treated to a better camera than its other siblings in the line – so it’s once again an 8-megapixel one. Thankfully, though, its placement is in a more ideal location in the back of the tablet, as opposed to being built into the corner of its cylindrical hinge. Checking out the camera app, it’s rich with several shooting modes and manual controls that offer us plenty of control in what we want to capture.
Not surprisingly, its quality mirrors that of its smaller sized sibling in the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2. We’ll certainly say that the results are more than usable, but our biggest concern is the slow focus of the camera, which is the culprit behind many of our shots coming out blurry. Details are okay when lighting is plentiful, but it becomes more soft and indistinct under low light. However, we will mention that it does a better job of adjusting its white balance accordingly under artificial lighting – it just has better looking neutral tone than the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2.The quality of 1080p video recording is by no means impressive, but it gets the job done. Details and colors are fine for the most part, but the continuous autofocus is decidedly slow in readjusting. Additionally, the audio recording is very thin- and sharp-sounding, which isn't good.
This is arguably the ultimate multimedia consuming device, as it boasts an arsenal of features that leaps the experience to a whole new level.
The sole and native music player is the Google Play Music app, so there’s nothing new here that we haven’t seen or experienced elsewhere. Armed with dual front-firing speakers, supplemented by a 5W JBL subwoofer in the rear, it musters up an audio output of 72.5 dB. Without the aid of Dolby sound, it sounds rather underpowered and thin in quality, but upon turning it on, there’s definitely more of a poppy and cleaner tone to it.
This is the dream lover’s device for video watching, thanks in part to its super detailed and generously sized display. Not only that, but its built-in pico projection solidifies the experience as it presents us with another experience we normally don’t get exposed to with other tablets – so it’s a perfect companion if you want to share the video watching experience with other people.
