User Reviews 1 User Reviews The software experience was also straightforward with a mostly stock Android interface, which We preferred over the heavier customizations in last year's model. The battery life impressed Us, reaching over 12 hours in Our test and providing 2 days of normal mixed use on a full charge.

User Reviews 2 I appreciated the useful built-in kickstand and hanging modes enabled by the signature Yoga design. Battery life impressed Me, easily lasting days even with heavy use thanks to the large 6,200mAh capacity.

Lenovo has released an updated version of its affordable Yoga Tab 3 Android tablet. The new 8-inch model delivers a strong overall user experience.

The Yoga Tab 3's standout features include long battery life, a vibrant display, and enhanced audio.

Our testing showed the large 6,200mAh battery easily lasting days of mixed use on a single charge. 

We also found the 800×1200 IPS screen to produce nice colors and viewing angles. 

Audio quality impresses as well thanks to loud stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos surround sound processing.

Lenovo retains the unique cylindrical design of past Yoga tablets. 

This provides a built-in kickstand for hands-free use along with hanging and stand modes. 

The textured plastic rear houses the elongated battery inside the cylinder bulge. 

While not as sleek looking as metal rivals, the Yoga Tab 3 still offers solid construction.

Performance is adequate but far from class-leading. The quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor and 1GB of RAM deliver expectedly average speed for the cost. 

We experienced occasional lag when multitasking or playing graphic-intensive games. 

For less demanding use like video streaming and web browsing, the tablet responds smoothly.

One of our few complaints involves the tablet‘s subpar cameras. 

Both the rear 8MP and front-facing shooters produce disappointingly dull and washed out images. 

Video tops out at a mere 720p resolution as well.

Overall Lenovo's latest Yoga tablet iteration provides strong value as an inexpensive Android slate for media usage. 

Buyers wanting more gaming power or productivity may want to spend extra on a model with high-end internals. 

But casual users should appreciate the Yoga Tab 3's long battery, enjoyable display, and loud audio in a novel design. 

Lenovo manages to tick most essential boxes for an entry-level entertainment tablet even while keeping costs low.
