Lenovo YOGA Tab 3 Pro
The Lenovo YOGA Tab 3 Pro is certainly a one-of-a-kind product. It certainly has its own fair share of flaws, but improvements can be made. The display is great, the projector is also decent. Lenovo had a vision for its hardware-software tie-in, but execution is somehow a little lackluster. Hats off to Lenovo for spicing up the market with something special like this.
The Lenovo YOGA TAB 3 Pro features an all metal front, plastic back, and some PU leather. The hinge is made entirely out of metal. The button to the latch release for its rotating hinge is made out of metal. The buttons are also made out of metal.
At the back, there’s a large piece of PU leather covers its back. This piece of leather does have a little bit of cushion, which raises my concern regarding its long-term durability.
When I left the Lenovo YOGA TAB 3 Pro’s leatherette part against the edge of a table or something angled, the leatherette will have some mark after some time. Most of these marks are unnoticeable, but there are some deeper marks that take a few hours to recover. I guess the point here is that at least it recovers.
The overall geometry of the Lenovo YOGA TAB 3 Pro however is pretty sleek. At the back here, there’s a button on the entire hinge plate. This little cutout doubles as a hole to hang the Lenovo YOGA TAB 3 Pro on a wall too.
Beneath the hinge is where a single flap can be found – and it’s where the microSD card sits.
At the left side is where a Projector button is found alongside with a 3.5mm audio jack. At the other side is where the microphone, volume rocker, and microUSB port is found. Also, the power button is integrated on the side of the hinge itself. Clever.
Also, I would like to see a dedicated USB-A port on this tablet too.
