Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus Ditches the Pico Projector: Hands On

It’s a new Lenovo Yoga Tab! Specifically, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus, successor to the precisely one-year-old Yoga Tab 3 Pro, is (still) a 10-inch Android tablet, but unlike the Pro, which had high-end specs and features, the Tab 3 Plus offers a compelling price-to-performance ratio.

It is equipped with an Adreno 510 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of memory storage (which can be expanded with microSD cards up to 128GB), and a USB Type-C connector.

The Yoga Tab 3 Plus has a WXQGA (2560 x 1600 pixels) resolution, and sports the familiar bottom cylinder, which houses a massive 9300mAh battery and enables a kickstand. Lenovo reps claim the battery provides 18 hours of juice, even watching movies in full resolution.

A Layman’s guide to choosing between the Surface Book, Surface Pro, or iPad Pro | PhoneDog

Many of our readers are students who are returning (or have already returned) to college for the fall semester. Even if you’re not a college student, you’re probably aware that this is the time of year that many companies host back to school sales for incoming students – and these deals typically aren’t just for students. Anybody can take advantage of them.

I’m a student, and this year some of my classes are hosted online. I decided that I wanted to invest in a hybrid of my own, and I eventually narrowed it down to the Surface Book, Surface Pro, and the iPad Pro. However, making a final decision wasn’t easy. Sifting through countless articles and reviews and visiting demo stations several times ended up helping very little when it came time to actually purchase a device. Eventually, it had to be done, and I finally made a decision based on a very non-technical list of reasons why I should or shouldn’t buy a certain product.

Apple’s iPad Pro works best if you:

  • Want a tablet with the option of using first-party keyboard.
  • Are invested or plan to invest in the Apple ecosystem.
  • Want a tablet with a good active digitizer for less money.
  • Value great battery life.
  • Prefer apps.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 works best if you:

  • Want equal parts tablet and laptop functionality.
  • Want included stylus.
  • Want the option to use a mouse.
  • Need USB ports.
  • Have a need for PC software, but not a wide array of apps.
  • Would like to have expandable storage.
  • Want options for a more powerful device.

Microsoft Surface Book works best if you:

  • Want more laptop functionality than tablet.
  • Want the option to use a mouse.
  • Need USB ports.
  • Would like to have expandable storage.
  • Want a hybrid that includes a keyboard and a stylus.
  • Need more power (including dedicated GPU in some models).
  • Decent battery life.
