Lenovo lunch a new tab in market. Its new Yoga tab Specifically, Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus. The Lenovo Tab 3 Pro is a no-compromise all in one entertainment center. While tablets such as the iPad Air 2 and Nexus 9 are built around portability, Lenovo has instead concentrated on slipping a bewitching array of hardware tricks up this media wizard’s metaphorical sleeve. Unique features include its cylindrical stand and a built in projector. One can make it stand on its own. Tilt it. Hang it, or simply hold it.
Lenovo Yoga Tab 3Plus about us
The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 is one of the most unique tablets you can buy under $200. Not only does its refreshing design exude a balance of innovation and functionality, it has two of the rarest features you can find on a tablet: powerful speakers and a sharp camera – a camera that can also rotate 180 degrees. Tablets are facing a steady decline, with the tablet market registering negative growth figures in 2k15. Even within this declining market, Apple continues to rule as the number one tablet manufacturer, with android and Windows-based tablet makers trailing behind. Chinese manufacturer Lenovo sits in fourth place, with a market share of just over 5 percent.
This brings us to the Question are Android tablets even relevant anymore? Lenovo sure think so, based on the fact that it just launched the Yoga tab 3 in India. An immersive pair of front-facing speakers on the 8-inch tablet further accentuates the portable viewing experience. Dolby Atoms technology and the preloaded Dolby app help make dialogue in TV shows and vocals in songs sound crisp and clear, while sound effects in games and movies dynamically travel between the speakers for an enthralling experience.
The Yoga Tab 3 continues to feature a tube like structure on one edge. But this layout also has some benefits. The cylinder makes the tablet easy to grip and houses a massive, 6200-mAh battery. The front features a glossy, black, plastic bezel around the 8-inch screen. The back is wrapped in a dark-gray, textured plastic; on the right end of the tube is a combo headphone/mic jack, while a circular button on the left is for locking and power.
The Lenovo has one of those, too. It has a solitary 8-megapixel camera located on its spine and it rotates 180 degrees to double as a front and rear camera. This isn’t just a fancy gimmick; the camera actually takes sharp, evenly exposed photos with accurate colors. I’m not saying it can beat the Apple iPhone 6S or Samsung Galaxy S6 in a shoot-out, but it definitely blows most other tablet cameras out of the water.
The Yoga Tab 3 is 8 inch display. 2560×1600 pixel screen is reasonably bright, although its propensity to pick up fingerprints can detract from the viewing experience. The Yoga Tab 3 8’s HD resolution is perfect for casual gaming and intense web browsing. It delivers incredible brightness for a great viewing experience under all angles and ambient lights. Your games are crisp and your videos simply beautiful to watch.
While the Yoga Tab 3’s brightness of 317 nits is less than the tablet average of 353 nits, the screen was still more than adequate for indoor viewing. However, outdoor use in bright light can be a little more troublesome. Asus ZenPad 8.0 screen was slightly dimmer, at 299 nits, Fire HD 8 proved to be a good deal brighter, at 400 nits. As an added perk the screen features Lenovo AnyPen technology. The tech lets the screen detect and read commands from any conductive object as if it was a stylus.
The tablet is also expected to a large 9,300 mAh battery, which should provide up to 18 hours of usage on a single charge. Other specs reportedly include 32 GB of native storage, microSD support for additional memory, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a USB Type-C port. it’s enough to watch two seasons of your favorite TV show back to back. The battery is so powerful; it can be used as a USB On-the-Go power bank, allowing you to charge all of your other devices. In addition, its in-box 24W fast charger ensures you’ll never run out of juice.
With an epic battery life of 15 hours and 9 minutes, the Yoga Tab 3 leapfrogged the entire tablet pack to become the longest-lasting tablet we’ve ever tested. That’s a full 5 hours longer than last year’s Yoga Tab 2, and more than twice the run time of Asus’ ZenPad S 8.0. The second longest-lasting tablet ever is Lenovo’s Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ from 2014.
The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 with four Cortex-A52 cores, running a 1.8 GHz clock and four Crotex-A53 cores, running a 1.4 GHz clock (the Pro had an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor). It is equipped with an Adreno 510 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of memory storage (which can be expanded with microSD cards up to 128GB), and a USB Type-C connector.
The Yoga Tab 3 Pro performed reasonably well when benchmarked, despite its lower memory. The tablet scored 48,867 on Antutu and ran in with a 3,269 multi-core Geek bench score. On the gaming-focused 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited test the Yoga Tab 3 Pro scored 25,774.
The Tab 3 Pro performs admirably with real-world use. Videos and music stream seamlessly and games like Riptide GP2, Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition and Shadow run Returns run chug free. The only minor performance issue I noticed was that, on occasion, the tablet would stutter slightly when navigating between windows – though this happened very rarely and never severely slowed down the device.
Lenovo’s loaded it with 13-megapixel rear and 4.9-megapixel front cameras. This puts it a cut above most tablets, which usually at best have 8-megapixel rear cameras. But be warned: more megapixels don’t necessarily mean fewer problems when it comes to camera tech. The Yoga Tab 3 Pro’s camera is good by tablet standards, but it’s still far from perfect. Images generally came out looking reasonably sharp and had suitably vibrant colors. But shutter lag is outright terrible.
Instead of featuring a camera in front and another on the back, the Yoga Tab 3’s party trick is the 180-degree rotating camera that lives on one end of the tubular grip. Not only does this remove the need for two separate cameras, but it also means you don’t need to settle for a front cam with a lower resolution than the one on the back. That’s what you get on many other smart phones and tablets.
Sound quality is one area where the Yoga Tab 3 Pro excels. Lenovo’s packed the tablet with four integrated front-facing JBL speakers and Dolby Atmos sound tech. Dolby Atmos on mobile is a nifty feature that’s designed to let the tablet create a virtual version of Dolby’s latest surround sound tech, which is used in many cinemas. The mobile app also has useful features, such as a sound equalizer that lets you optimize the speakers for particular types of audio, such as games, music and movies. While this is great for people who like to tweak Sonics, out of the box I found the sound quality to be impressive.
The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro’s bass is noticeably chunkier than competing tablets to the point it makes the iPad Air 2 and Galaxy Tab S2’s speakers sound outright weedy. Mid-levels and highs are also strong and never sound drowned out. The tablet’s maximum volume is also great. Using it to watch TV shows 12ft away with the projector turned on, able to clearly hear audio with the speaker set to 40% volume hassle free.
OS and Features
The Yoga Tab 3 ships with Android 5.1, and although Lenovo says it’s working on providing an update to the recently released Android 6.0 Marshmallow, there’s no specific timetable for when that new OS will arrive. Lenovo does include a couple of its helpful DO it apps, as well as McAfee Security. I like that Share it makes it super easy to send or receive files from other mobile devices.
The Tab 3 Pro is powered by an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 chip, 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and is host to 32GB of onboard storage. The display is a very bright, QHD (2560×1600) display and you get a 50 Lumens DLP projector with a 480p resolution. While iOS can get away with 2GB of RAM, we all know that when it comes to Android, the more the merrier. The front and rear cameras are 5MP and 13MP respectively. The speakers are made by JBL and support Dolby Atmos technology, and you get 4 of them.
