Customer Reviews for Yoga 8
Review 1 for Yoga 8
Date:March 31, 2014
"Had given up upon tablets and sold my first one. Then I wanted one to control my wifi enabled audio setup and got this one at a bargain price. Compared to my previous Samsung 8.9 tab, this one is in a different league. Everything works snappy, the design is not only beautiful, it's ergonomic advantages becomes crystal clear the moment you pick it up. The battery lasts forever and the kickstand is extremely handy. I think screen colors could have been a bit more saturated with a bit more contrast but the screen is much much better than many ipad fan reviewers would make you believe. The back camera might not havd DSLR qualities but who cares, real pictures deserve a real camera anyway. I love this device!"
Pros: Battery, Processor, Included software, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size
Cons: Storage, Support
"a good machine and serves my purpose.
A few design flaws especially the SD card slot in the back. The kick stand gets in the way and you better have a tool and backup tool to extract the SD card or you will never get it out. The slot should be re-designed so that a part of the SD card is exposed and easily accessible. Tech support is not all that great and an included manual would be a huge plus."
Cons: Display resolution, Support, Security Features, Included Software
"I bought this for my wife for Christmas. She's tickled with it - her main concerns (only) is to be able to watch movies from the SD card and Netflix.
The included instructions were sparse and the website no better.
The video is great according to my wife, but I did some side by side comparisons of various videos and still pictures and it is good IMO, but doesn't measure up to a 7" brand X tablet for 1/3 the price.
I would get another one, at the current price, especially if they upgraded the video resolution, and added support for 64 GB SD cards. I seldom use a tablet but when I do it is to watch movies, all Android (sans keyboard) is good for IMO..."
"This is a great tablet. Have used Ipads at work, but this is easier to hold and the battery life is way better. I know some say that the screen resolution is not up to par, but I don't miss it. I'm 64 and for the money, you can't beat this tablet. I have the 8 inch, 16 gig. Does everything I need. Unless you have some very specific needs, you need to give this tablet some serious consideration. Oh yes, the charge up time from 10% battery is pretty darn fast."
Cons: Video card, Memory, Support, Input/Output compatibility, Bluetooth, Security Features, Keyboard/peripherals, Included Software, Software compatibility, Processor, Screen size
"Yoga 8" and Lenovo dual mouse N700 BT4. The Tablet is recognizing the mouse, but its not working because according to my knowledge HID over GATT (HOGP) BT Profile is missing, so I can't use my Lenovo N700 dual mouse. This means BT4 LE simple devices like mouse or keyboard are not supported by this Tablet. Lenovo advertised BT4 LE support, therefore I would like to get a solution.
"I use the tablet mainly for browsing. Display is sharp, bright, responsive and easy to read, great viewing angles. Great for reading web pages, photos very sharp. 7 incher's with full HD have very small screen fonts. Battery life incredible. Days of browsing, skype call with video, watching tube movies etc. Front speakers are great. Kickstand great for tube videos rather than holding it or propping up somewhere. Quad core processor is great for day to day function, no lag. Very responsive. A faster processor would be noticed on intense games only. Web cam great for skype. 5MP camera is on par with other tablets. Hold it with the grip on the top side for best handling when taking pictures and movies. Needs an easy way to organize apps. Very very highly recommended."
"I tried numerous tablets before I got to this one. The Yoga 8 wasn't even on my list. Almost all of what I do is media consumption and social networking. I tried the new Nexus 7, Samsung Note 8, Ipad. These were the top rated new tablets according to the online reviews. I was always left wanting. Until I picked one of these up! Once I got it all set up I was in love! It has plenty of power for the net, movies, and social networking. Not to mention the best battery life out there!!! The battery life on this thing is amazing! Add in the unique design, kick stand, and front facing speakers and this thing rocks!! Lenovo has a winner here! I hope they continue to develop it and upgrade it in the future. Lenovo has made me a life long customer now!!"
"Where Lenovo excels over the competition is the form factor of the battery module that serves as a great handle that fits into your palm, while almost doubling the battery life. This feature is what really won me over! Since the Android OS is a Google product, it did disappoint me a little that the set up of my Gmail account did not go as easy as it should. No indication on how to interface and/or synch with my Windows based desktop."
"I am an IT Professional and I've tried a lot of tablets, but this is the first tablet I really wanted to buy. Great size, long battery life, good sound, and a lot of fun to use. It's about half the cost of an iPad and I like it much better. The stand is a great feature as well."
"Using the Yoga 8 as a new user is trial and error to use the apps, connect to a network, specs on SD cards, and general use. I downloaded a PDF of the user manual from the Lenovo site but it does not cover anything in detail. Unit seems to be good but user information is severely lacking. Information on moving files from the internal storage to an SD card or SD card to another computer does not exist. Specs on the SD card itself do not exist."
Cons: Video card, Wireless card, Keyboard/peripherals
"I have been a Lenovo owner for many years and my last Lenovo Tablet has lasted 3 years for which my son is now enjoying since I have purchased the new Yoga 8.
First of all the battery life is unprecedented and will give a business professional all they need in a days work or an intercontinental travel. I love the multi window desktop so I can quickly jump form one app to another for cut and pasting.
Adding the rounded end truly helps with grip and security of holding the device. I have MANY times used the stand for tilt or for standing the device upright for viewing.
Over all I am sure I will love this device even more than my previous and would recommend the Yoga 8 without reservation."
"Product is far better than the reviews. I got it for the battery life and that does not disappoint. Performance is fine. I need it as laptop replacement on the road. Samsung disappointed me with my previous tablet and poor Android release support. Hope Lenovo is wiser than Samsung on that."
Cons: Display resolution, Wireless card, Included Software
"So far it has been a great device. For what it is, it is impressive value. It's biggest failing is its screen, I have used other tablets with a higher resolution. Second complaint is the wireless card. Not disappointing but I think it could have been better. Finally the interface is a little wonky, all of your apps live on the main screen. The simplicity is nice but I have some apps I don't use that are impossible to delete. To be clear my reservations are only slight, overall it is an enjoyable device with outstanding battery life so far which is why I think the faults I see are there to preserve the battery life.
Overall the best tablet on the market but it is my favorite in it's price range that I have used. I would recommend it if you don't want to spend more."
"Overall performance is great. I unfortunately purchased it at a much higher price. Love the kick stand. The things I want to see improvement is the way all the apps are laid out. I prefer them in groups as in the A3000 tablet. Also, if you don't have large or strong hands, holding the tablet may cause some strain. I have that problem because I have weak hand/fingers (some joint pain issues). Overall, this is a very nice tablet. Sound quality is great. Picture is more than satisfactory. Response time is also fast."
