At $249 (£199, AU$349), the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 is aimed to compete with the big names in the budget tablet market, like Google's Nexus 7 and Apple's iPad mini 2. The hardware does well to keep up with media consumption and getting work done.

The Lenovo Yoga 2 is a good bridge between the mid-range and high end tablets. With a superb battery life, sharp HD display and strong performance, the tablet rises above its competition, and puts pressure on the high-end tablets on the market to step up their game.

We liked

The extensive battery life and crisp HD screen make the Yoga 2 a wonderful addition to your technology collection. The versatile stand makes the tablet incredibly useful for media use, and the multitasking options make it worthwhile for people looking for a business tablet.

We disliked

The tablet's battery cylinder makes it bulky at the base. On a related note, this is also a relatively heavy tablet, sacrificing a light-weight design for a longer battery life. As a result, it also takes much longer to charge than other tablets.

Final verdict

The Yoga 2 is a fun and powerful tablet that provides a great deal of versatility. For a 10-inch Android tab that's under 300 bucks, you can easily do much worse than the Yoga 2.

With its powerful battery life, front facing speakers and useful stand options, this Yoga is a fine media device for videos and mobile games.

For business, the multitasking feature and ability for Bluetooth keyboard connectivity makes work easy. Lenovo is known for its strong and reliable products, and the Yoga 2 is no exception. For the media nut on a budget, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 is well worth the price.
