Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 (10-inch) Android Tablet Review (Page 5)

The general performance of the Yoga Tablet 2 was great, but the actual hardware performance of the Yoga Tablet 2 will be divided into below - where it gets destroyed in our benchmarks. The day-to-day use of the 10-inch, Intel-powered tablet is not too bad at all. You can't feel that it would be the type of tablet to get destroyed by its competition, which is why benchmarks don't always show off the real-world performance of a device.

The JBL speakers are more than impressive, with Dolby Surround Sound technology to help make the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 one of the better sounding tablets on the market. Blasting Netflix or YouTube while in 'Stand' mode is one of the best uses for this Yoga Tablet 2.

Battery Life

When it came to battery life, I did a bunch of real-world testing on it, which involved lots of YouTube, Google Play Music, Spotify, Netflix and web surfing. I got around two days out of it with the usual amount of use, and a good 9-10 hours of constant video playback.


This is something I don't think a tablet should be sold on, but we have some benchmarks of the Yoga Tablet 2 if it helps your decision-making process. I do not recommend buying a device based on its benchmarks. I have these here to give you an indication of its internal performance, but real-world performance across these tablets is mostly the same - even if the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 gets utterly destroyed, as you're about to witness.


The Yoga Tablet 2 doesn't do too well in Basemark X's gaming performance score with medium quality and AA disabled, with it being the lowest scoring device on our charts so far.


3DMark performance on the Yoga Tablet 2 wasn't too bad, but it is still the lowest performing device on our charts yet again.


We see the Yoga Tablet 2 continue its performance mediocrity in GFXBench 3.0, where it is toe and toe with the LG G3 smartphone.


And again, the Yoga Tablet 2 continues to get punished by the much more powerful competition.


For the Yoga Tablet 2's final benchmark, we let it have a rest - this is embarrassing.
