Taking a Look Around the Yoga Tablet 2

The box that the Yoga Tablet 2 arrives in is nice, which we'll take a look at before peering at the tablet itself.

Here we have the front of the box, where we can see some of the flexing that the Yoga Tablet 2 is capable of.

On the back, we find out the details on the Yoga Tablet 2 itself, with its Intel Z3745 quad-core processor clocked at 1.86GHz, 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and the 10.1-inch 1920x1200 IPS-based display.

Here we have the front of the tablet, with the speakers on either side of the screen around the hinge. We have the front facing camera to the left, which would be at the top when you're holding the Yoga Tablet 2 vertically.

On the back of the tablet, we have a microSD card slot behind that little flap to the left and the rear-facing camera that we'll get closer to in a minute.

How It Feels - Real World Use of the Yoga Tablet 2

One of the best features of the Yoga Tablet 2 is that it has some great uses for its many different stand modes. The "Hang" mode was one of my favorites, especially for those with hooks around the house or in their garage. You could easily hang the Yoga Tablet 2 where you want, and have music or YouTube playing.

The design of the Yoga Tablet 2 is one of the most unique I've come across, as it changed the way I actually held it, too. I held the Yoga Tablet 2 from the bottom where its battery and speaker are found, as that's where the bulk of the weight is found. Even when I was sitting or laying down, my hand gravitated toward that part of the tablet to counteract the weight and balance it.
