Battery

Of course, the compromise in having such a large and high-res screen is having reduced battery life.

The biggest opponent to battery longevity in any device is its screen, so we’re not too shocked by the average-like results we get from the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro’s 9600 mAh battery. It’s actually the same capacity as the smaller sized Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2. Therefore, after taking that into consideration, it doesn’t surprise us to find it reaching a mark of 6 hours and 43 minutes in our battery benchmark test. Conversely, it’s able to power us through one-day of normal usage, which is pretty average.

Battery life (hours) Higher is better
Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro 6h 43 min (Average)
Apple iPad Air 2 7h 27 min (Good)
Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 7h 2 min (Good)

Conclusion


Before we get down and dirty with our final judgment, let’s first think about the kinds of tablets we can pick up for $500. At that cost, we can select popular models such as the iPad Air 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, which are undoubtedly rich with stellar specs and top-notch performances. Rather than trying to out-do its rivals in the specs department, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro aims to entice us with its different approach of being a larger, more generously sized tablet that blends fun and play into one neat package – especially when it features a rarely seen built-in pico projector. If you’ve been waiting for a tablet with a larger-than-normal display, you’ll certainly find the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro’s $500 priced package to be enticing.

Nice device but if it were 10.1" would be better, I have the lenovo yoga tablet 10.1 1st generation and it works well. Also the battery life is great, more than 15 hours . Lenovo branch is durable , I don't have any case for my tablet , I dropped it and is still working well . I hope the projector in a 10.1 table.
