Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 (10-inch) Android Tablet Review

Display

 

The display on Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 is a beautiful 10-inch 1920x1200 IPS-based display, but while it might sound great, in person it's not amazing. The rendered text and images look 'fuzzy', which is hard to explain in text. It's something you need to see in order to understand. In some apps and images, the images and text look super clear, but it's not an OS-wide fuzziness. It's a strange beast to explain.

The pixel density is great, but the UI doesn't make any good use of it, so it is mostly wasted. Full HD content looked great on it, as I did a fair amount of Netflix and YouTube consumption on the Yoga Tablet 2.

 

 

Software

 

I'm such a big advocate of stock Android, but Lenovo has splashed so much of its own software onto the Yoga Tablet 2 that it's hard to get around sometimes. There's no app drawer, so you just continue to swipe to the right to get into your apps, and back to the left in order to get back to your home screen.

 

The UI is very similar to iOS, with some of the icons and splash screens really reminding me that it looked like an Apple device. We do have 4-app multi-window, which lists a bunch of apps that you can select, drag, and drop into four different applications that makes use of the display. You can also resize apps to use more of the screen, too.

 

If you swipe up from the bottom of the screen, you'll get a control center (see the Apple similarities here?) where you have access to quick settings and the notification tray.
