Only 1 GB RAM?????
Why don't they release a tablet with a good spec with this smaller size as well?
The pervious generation of it is much better.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2015Snapdragon 210 and 1 GB of RAM!? When will lenovo start making 2014-2016 tablets, 2160?They do. You just won't get one for under $200
Bought the 10" version....
If you´re after a multimedia tablet, and you want something functional, pratical , good image and sound this the tablet for you.
You´be amazed how smooth stock android can go whith little resources....no bloatware or pre-installed apps.....Only the Google based ones which you can disable...
DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!
I guess it's slowest machine which I have ever had...
Regret that I didn't took Samsung :(
ammy, 14 Feb 2016Snapdragon 212 ?covers all the basic tasks. It´s stock Android and it runs smoothly.
If you´re a heavy gamer or very demaing than go for the PRO version
ggg, 09 Jun 2016Can somebody tell me if its suitable for long hour PDF readingYes,
You can use it for reading for many hours. Didn't try how long but 6+ hours for sure.
I watch movies during 3-4 hour flights and battery is still more than 50%.
ggg, 09 Jun 2016Can somebody tell me if its suitable for long hour PDF readingit'll last you 8 hours lol. Use it everyday in school, a bit underpowered but great for simple tasks.
Using a yoga tab 2 pro 10' with 2 GB RAM for over a year and it's never disappointed.. Except the lenovo ui
toysupra80, 25 Feb 2016I have to tell you that I bought this tablet one month ago and I'm a disappointed. I should ha... moreYup, u are right.. Shouldn't get any Android device with only 1g ram. I'm using Yoga tablet 2 8 inch for more than a year now. So far, no problem & I'm happy with it..
I have to tell you that I bought this tablet one month ago and I'm a disappointed. I should have done my homework more thoroughly! I love the speakers with the Dolby Atmos sound. I love the multimode way to hold the tablet as well. What disappoints me is the tablets performance and the Lenovo UI. The performance is, I guess, on par with lower priced tablets. The processor is sub par and there is not enough memory so, the tablet does not run very smoothly. I tried to find the Yoga Tab 2 8.0 but, couldn't. I would have been much happier with a Intel processor than the very under powered Qualcom processor. Another thing. If a tablet does not come with at least 2GB of Ram, it ain't worth it. I can live with the 1280x800 pixel display but, the camera is wack!
I did switch from asus zenpad s to this one and I don't even look back. Of course the specs are way down, but for people looking basic tablet just for browsing and watching movie this is a beast!, I manage to squeeze around 15 hours just watching movie with brightness set to 33%. For comparison zenpad s with around same settings can only hold around 6 hours (and it also doesn't have lte version)
Although its downgrade from yoga tab 2, Lenovo putting this tablet into entry level segment starting @$169-199 (compare to yoga tab 2 @$239-269)
IMO it's great for casual use like browsing and watching movie, lenovo cut down the hardware to maximize battery life and cut down the cost.
