Not in my opinion, stupid bezel/folding design. Screen is also poor resolution for a 10 inch tab

Apologies, thought it was 10 inch,

First of all,We are talking about 8 inch tablet not 10inch . I think it depends, lenovo has great battery life( 6000mah) compare to nexus(3950mah) lenovo is 1inch bigger than nexus 7 . With regards to nexus 7 it has 2gb ram compare to yoga 1gb. Due to small screen Nexus has better screen resolution. Lenovo has micro SD card up 64gb whereas nexus has no expansion option(no sd card).

Surely it has a better screen because it has a better resolution, regardless the size of the screens?

Lenovo, a brand that I am a big fan of, should be marketing this one as a road warrior.

If you can overlook the many negatives in the reviews, the battery life, in the energy-sapping continuous video loop tests, is great. Fine, for video it's less than the Microsoft Surface 2 and iPad Mini, by several hours but those are considerably more expensive. That the Lenovo will comfortably give you a full day's office work between charges, is no compensation to me for the relatively poor quality screen and very poor benchmark scores that leave it near the bottom of tables in comparative reviews, I still think people are kind of missing the point, that though it's very much a budget model that battery life, at an affordable budget point for most, could be extremely useful to some who are away from the mains for long periods. Though to me it felt cheaper than it looks in those attractive photographs and though I appreciate that the design lends itself to using the tablet in a way that some people will find a bit annoying, I personally like the design a lot. The combination of cash-back, John Lewis being a good dealer and Lenovo having a decent name for themselves, I'm for cutting it some slack and giving it some heat if your main use is in editing/typing reports and you don't need a slick-quick fluidly-fast interface/browsing experience or necessarily stellar video quality.

terrible screen shame on Lenovo
they are on display in argos 10inch and 8 inch
waste of money

In official tests this thing averaged a very average 12-hour battery life.

I would say that considering the cost of this device, and the feedback from reviews which suggests the Yoga Tab is very poor, why not invest your hard earned ££ in the Nexus 7, or better still spend a little extra and get an ipad mini.

I should add, I havnt voted on this deal just because I don't like the product

8" is a good tablet size but there is not a huge choice, yes the ipad mini is best for most people but the price is high, other choices are the galaxy note 8 or lg pad, or could try chinese route with a Cube u55gt..

Fully agree with your comment. The Nexus FHD has a higher resolution but this comes at the expense of battery life - I would get around 7-8h on average. Returned that and got the MemoPad HD on the Tesco deal and as many reviewers have noted, the Mediatek quad-core processor while not as fast as the Snapdragon in the Nexus FHD gives epic battery life due to the 28nM manufacturing process employed - usually around 12h! - and on the same capacity of battery (ca. 4000mAh).

I have had a look at the Lenovo at Currys and the buld quality is very good, it looks quite sleek and the battery hump really isn't that intrusive. I couldn't tell much of a difference in screen quality between the MemoPad's 7 inch 1280x 800 screen and the same resolution stretched out to 8 inches on the Lenovo - both are easily watchable, prenty bright and sharp. I'd think the Lenovo would give 15h+ of battery life given it has a a similar Mediatek processor to the Memopad HD with a 50% higher capacity battery. I don't know about you folks but I don't really care much for a tablet that doesn't get you through a full day without requiring a re-charge.

I too would prefer a Nexus 7 and the fairly expensive iPad Mini but the Nexus 7 battery lasted for only 7hrs and 13minutes of continuous video playback, ranking it second bottom of the pack in Endgadget's test of twenty tablets, whereas the Lenovo in the same continuous video test took fifth place with 10hrs and 8minutes. They test the tablets with Wifi on and 50% brightness. If used just for light office work with Wifi off, that figure is going to be considerably higher, still, though behind the Microsoft Surface 2 and iPad Mini, which came first and second. The PC Advisor review has the Lenovo managing even more at 12 hours of video playback using BBC's iPlayer. "We've given the Yoga Tablet 10 our usual BBC iPlayer playback test and it performed extremely well. The 8in model gave us 12 hours playback and the 10in tablet managed a slightly lower but still impressive 10 hours."

This tablet is very good, I have the original nexus and prefer this to that.
It ius easier to hold and is quick.

However if you want spec, then except for this having a bigger screen, nexus is better in spec, screen etc. Especially the new one.

Good unit and great purchase for me.

agree with this. I would much prefer the note 8 (£199) or lg g pad (£229) to this. the lg is the clear winner but the note is also better than this and easily worth the extra.

It's quite a cool concept and nice to see Lenovo pushing with this but they continually put budget MTK chipsets in their devices, these are usually only found in low-cost/high-value Chinese tablets and there's nothing wrong with that, other than most people when paying this kind of money expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon or nVidia Tegra processor. For that reason I'm also fairly sure the Nexus 7 (2013) will annihilate this device in raw performance.

I can't understand people complaining about tablet with decent size and spec for £169.00 then comparing with all sorts of tablet with high price range seems irrelevant as the more money you pay the more good product you get and miss the main point " is this is the good buy with the price given or not.

Great Tablet, Good construction and feel very good battery!

Screen is pretty good too - Now, if you hold it close like 6" or closer then yeah ok it could be better and then you notice the fuzzys
But common stick it dining table read news, web browes, watch iplayer or youtube - run round kitchen doing stuff ...
Darn excellent tablet really.

it does its job well - more a refined Toyota and not a Suped up Ford ...

We also have an original 2012 Nexus 7 and only Android Kitkat 4.4 has resurrected it.

Know what your buying and for what usage scenarios and you wont be dissapointed
The stand is really handy and design is good if you want to hold and read too.

if it the fastest... No - but to be honest I only find i need that for gaming and i found i gave up trying to game on a tablet
i personally dont like it and the mrs whose tablet this is only plays the odd casual game.

If you want a well made tablet you cannot go wrong...
if you want faster go for advent/evga/nvidea tab or Nexus 7 (2013) or what not.

It costs £25 less though, you are effectively paying £25 for an extra one year warranty. Which you probably won't need.

Super deal, just waiting for a deal this 2014 for similar price so that quad core is atom CPU (also quad) and Android is replaced with Windows 8.1!

The old Nexus 7 is nowhere near as premium feeling though. This Lenovo looks cool. I saw one in flesh in John Lewis, it catches the eye with the design. Plus its got an extra inch in real estate and a useful kick stand. It is different, not a sheep device. I actually like it.

Sounds like a bit of frankenstein device with an external power pack and a temporary expanded memory in the micro USB socket. You say you want it for travelling too? That could be a bit awkward with all the cables hanging off the tablet.

That a valid point to make with regards to using tablet while travelling with all sorts of excess accessories.

This is an indifferent device , to my way of thinking.

I would either buy a £99 7" I trust
Or a £250+ high end bigger tablet

This reminds me of that toshiba tablet that had the over heating tegra onderclocked in it
the manufacturers appear to have lost confidence and are dumpin iy on the market

It is neither one thing or the other

COCO

A bit confused, the power pack will not be dangling. We all travel with a backpack or suitcase generaly...this powerpack will only charge ur devices when they run out of juices...so there is room to watch 2-3 movies...before charging ur tablet while having a nap ..
