For some people, the main purpose of a tablet is to while away the time when they’re bored. A tablet can dispel boredom when you’re on a break at work or school, or during the long commute home. In fact, you can also use this gadget at home in lieu of a TV, which may prove handy for some.
Specs and Features
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is specifically designed for an epic home theater experience. Even when not in use, it sure looks impressive. Its profile and matte metallic finish seem exquisitely futuristic, and it features a large 13.3-inch screen with QHD with 2560 by 1440 resolution that makes it super-easy to enjoy any movie you’ve downloaded. The colors are vivid and sharp. Its cylindrical bottom edge also enables you to prop it up in various angles.
Now if your 13-inch display is not enough for you, you can use the pico projector to display the movie on any wall in your living room or bedroom. Just stand about 6½ feet away, and you can enjoy the 50-inch wide movie with 854 x 480 resolution, which should be enough for you to see the sparkling effects on Edward’s body in Twilight.
The 13.1 x 8.8-inch Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is also very portable, and it weighs no more than 2 pounds. And with the keyboard cover it’s actually lighter than the Microsoft Surface. It also comes with an 8MP camera and a JBL woofer.
The speakers are decent, and it can sure fill your bedroom with sharp and clear sounds. But you should use the Dolby Audio app, so you can use the Music mode to improve the rather tinny default Movie mode.
Just in case you actually have other uses for your tablet aside from movie watching, the 1.33-GHz quad-core processor in the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro can handle your basic multitasking needs. Converting a 200 MB movie from 1080p to 480p took less than 5½ minutes, which is much faster than the average tablet time of more than 9 minutes. It can also let you enjoy graphic-intensive games.
As for battery life, when on standby it only lasts for 15 hours while you can surf the Internet for about 8 hours straight before you would need to recharge the battery. Using the projector will require you to recharge after 5 hours.
Pros and Cons
With the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, you have a tablet that can almost replace your TV, and on the road its ability to project a movie on any wall or on its 13.3-inch screen can surely help you pass the time.
However, if you’re into taking selfies, you’ll find that the camera is merely adequate. And the large built means using only one hand for this gadget is nigh impossible.
If you’re more into watching movies and browing the Web than taking pictures, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is the one for you. This is the ultimate cinematic experience on a tablet.
