Lenovo Yoga 720 15″
Hello! Guys, Today, I’m going to take a look at Lenovo Yoga 720 15 reviews. This is the larger version of the Yoga 720 13 which is very thin and lite but this is a lot bigger and a lot heavier. There’s definitely a size increase here going from the 13th to the 15th you’ll look for more screen real estate, a little more horsepower and perhaps a GPU. This one might be the one to look for now like the 13th, this is a 2 in 1. So, you can flip the screen around back like you can also put it into tent mode or have it work as a huge tablet. You can do all these things with this device which is a little bit more than you might be able to do with similar 13 or 15-inch laptops from each other manufacturers and we taking a closer look at this how it performs and all the other stuff. So let’s find out-
Let’s take a closer look at the hardware, the build quality of this device is really nice. It’s an all-metal case, it’s got some really nice fit and finish to it, it feels pretty rugged and really well put together. It measures 14.3-inches long, 9.5-inches wide and .75-inches thick. The screen does bounce a little bit more than I would like so as you’re touching the screen here you can see it is bouncing back at me. So that is one thing that I noted with it.
On the left side of the device, you also have a Power connector, USB 3.0 port over here, a headphone, microphone jack and on the other side here you’ve got another USB 3.0 port, you’ve got a Thunderbolt USB-C connector and you’ve also got your power switch here. Now, this port will do video output to Display Port or HDMI with an adapter, it will not do though power delivery. So, you can only charge it with the power connector.
There’s a fingerprint reader on the front left, below the keyboard works just as well as it does on the Yoga 13.
This version has a 1080p display. The 1080p display looks really nice. The color is decent on it, adequate brightness probably not as bright as my MacBook. The viewing angles are also really decent on it as well. The color accuracy is very good as well you’ve got 96% SRGB, 74% Adobe RGB and 71% NTSC. The screen does have a bit of wobble when you touch it but the hinges are stiff and it’s not possible to open it with one hand. It has their minimal light leakage there’s just a little bit perhaps in the top right-hand corner. There is also a version with a 4k display that will impact your battery life though, so with the 1080p display, we’re only getting about 5-6 hours of battery life in my testing doing web browsing and some YouTube video watching and that sort of thing. You’ll get left with that 4k display so you may want to thank very carefully about which display you want to get yours configured with.
It’s typical of the Yoga series, it’s not my favorite. The keys feel, there’s no wobble, no sponginess but not too much travel about 1.4mm. it feels little short.
The trackpad which shows up as Wacom device which would be pretty odds is usually not the business of making trackpad. It’s not my favorite. I prefer the XPS 15 and the HP Spectre x260.
Processor & Memory: –
It comes with an Intel Quad-Core i7 Kaby-Lake Processor. It’s the 7700 HQ, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. This one has a GPU a separate graphics processor which is nice for video editing, games, and some other activities. It’s a NVIDIA GTX 1050. It has 2GB of video RAMs, a little less than what you might see in some of the lower cause gaming laptops. But still decent enough to play some games on it, yet still have something that’s a little thinner and lighter than perhaps you might see with a cheap gaming laptop.
Stylus Pen: –
Let’s take a look at the Pen and its performance, it uses a Wacom AES technology and I bought Lenovo Active Pen and is able to do 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. It does come with the spare nibs and a USB Pen holder and I use OneNote a lot. And it right up to the edge and it when drawing it does tend to keep up with your face fast stroke so that is nice. And you can do lighter and darker pen strokes as well. The Pen does have two buttons on it one for left-click and one for right click and it has good palm memory jack so there are no accidental scribbles whistling your hand on the screen. Sensitivity is also good. The pen does take one battery to power it.
It’s a good multimedia tablet, it has two stereo speakers with Dolby Audio Premium. It sounds very nice and enjoyable for watching movies.
Let’s sum up, there’s a lot to like about the Yoga 720, it’s build quality, top-notch, solid aluminum, there’s no gaps and no creaks. The screen at full brightness is great I can see why people jump to 4K IPS. It is not for gaming purpose because on this model as the GTX 1050 is not powerful enough but watching 4K movies and photos it is very nice. Such accuracy is very good and responsive. The speakers are good and also the battery life is great. You should be able to get nearly a full day of work out of it depending on what brightness settings unit you apply. The Pen works well although it is too heavy here to use in tablet mode. The fan noise is low so it’s great for an official environment. And 1080p gaming at medium to high settings is certainly very possible. So, I think this is a budget laptop and if buy it then I don’t think it’s a bad option.
