Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet has been my favorite Android device ever since it was introduced in October 2013. Just a week later I decided the 8" version was a better fit for me than the 10", which I returned. Both had the same screen resolution so the smaller one looked sharper, it was lighter and there was no downside.

Fast forward to today. A new 10" version is in the house. It does have a higher resolution: 1920x1200 instead of 1280x800 in the old one. That's a huge difference. It also comes with a Snapdragon Quadcore instead of the Mediatek in the old one. The Lenovo site says they are running on 4.3 and 4.2 but both tablets have since been updated to Android 4.4.

There is also a subtle hardware change. The hinge which supports the device in stand mode is now longer, so the tablet has a better stand and can lean back further without becoming unstable. Under the hinge there is now a door to protect the SDcard. There is also a Golden version, but I was lucky to score the Silver one. ;-)

While the US site lists the device as having 32 GB of storage, the German site specs it at 16 GB, as is my model. It probably does not really matter since you want to add an SDcard for additional storage anyway.

Which one do you get today? The 10 HD+ is way better, but the 8 is only half the price by now. Decisions, decisions.

Well, 156€ for the 16GB 8" version. Sounds very reasonable. Reviews praise the build quality and the loooong battery life (18hrs??) with an overall decent performance. It sounds like a no-brainer for, let's say my mum, isn't it?

Indeed. It is.

If Android then Nexus - is this the exception of the rule? :)
