Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ Android Tablet Review
By David Ramsey
Full Disclosure: Lenovo provided the product sample used in this article. But we had to send it back after the review was completed.
Last fall Benchmark Reviews examined the predecessor to the Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ tablet, and found that it represented an excellent value for the money. This time around, Lenovo ups the ante with a dramatically improved screen, faster quad-core Snapdragon processor, and double the memory of the earlier model. Add its unique design and construction and the Lenovo Yoga tablet becomes on of the more intriguing Android devices available.
A tablet computer, by definition, must be a flat “slate” form factor. Or must it? If you haven’t seen a Yoga tablet before, you may be in for a surprise. Like the experienced yoga practitioner, Lenovo’s Yoga tablets have the ability to assume different forms depending on what you’re doing with them.
