Lenovo Yoga 910
Hello, Guys! Welcome back to another discussion and today, take a look at Lenovo Yoga 910 review. It brings many improvements over the previous version, the Yoga 900. The 910 is a 2 in 1 tablet and laptop hybrid and Lenovo packed in a whole bunch of really high-end features to this laptop. So, let’s get started-
It has an all-metal aluminum unique body case that feels very durable. The previous model Yoga 900 had a rubber material on the edges and the leather-like surface surrounding the keyboard. But those are gone with this model to fully show off the aluminum design. It’s only about half an inch thin a little over 3 pounds. It’s so effortless carrying this around from room to room or bringing to the coffee shop.
The metal watchband hinge also returns, allowing users to convert the device into four different modes: notebook, stand, tent, and tablet. It’s convertible, so the display stays firmly in the position you set, but fluid enough when you need to move it. It seems to be stronger in this generation, too, because I don’t notice the display wobble as much when I touch the screen.
The left side includes 2 USB Type-C ports. One is for power and always-on charging for another device, while the other port is for data and display output. The right side has the headphone and mic combo, a USB 3.0 Type-A Port, and the power button.
This review unit has a 13.9-inch UHD, 3840 x 2160 pixels display, but it’s also available in full HD. It’s sharp, has wide viewing angles, and nice, saturated colors. There is, however, a big amount of black space below the screen. It’s also where you’ll find the front-facing camera, which means friends and co-workers will be looking up your nose during video calls. I would’ve preferred a bigger bezel on top of the screen to fit the camera there.
Also, while an edge-to-edge screen seems like a great idea, I found a couple of drawbacks. There were some accidental presses when adjusting the display position, and it’s now a little harder to bring up the action center when swiping in front the right edge. These are not deal breakers, but still worth mentioning.
The backlit keyboard feels comfortable to type on with ample key travel. It also improves on the previous generation by having a more traditional layout. Last year’s version had the Home, End and Page buttons on the right side which resulted in pressing the Home button frequently by mistakes because it was immediately next to the backspace button. The Yoga 910 has a row of handy hotkeys along the top of the keyboard. They give you quick access to certain system settings like volume, screen brightness, mute, airplane mode and more. There’s also a Function key that is used in combination with other keys for more options.
The Trackpad gives you about a 5-ich diagonal space to work with, which is bigger than the previous generation. It’s smooth and responsive to touch and it’s also certified as a Precision Touchpad, So all the touch options are listed within the main settings instead of digging deeper into third-party drivers like Synaptics or Elan. By the way, you can find Precision Touchpads on all surface devices.
Towards the right of the trackpad is the fingerprint sensor compatible with Windows Hello. This is used to log you into Windows or grant access to applications and documents. It’s a nice feature to have, and this is the first time the fingerprint sensors comes standard in Lenovo’s premium Yoga series.
Processor & Memory: –
When it comes to specs, the Yoga 910 has a 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, Intel HD 620 integration graphics, up to 16 gigs of RAM, and up to 1TB of PCIe SSD for storage. The new processor brings improved battery life performance, as well as improved 4K video playback.
Let’s talk about performance, apps open quickly, browsing is a breeze, and 4K videos play smoothly. And that’s what you should expect from a premium laptop. If you’re looking for numbers, the review unit got a multi-core score of about 8,000 on Geekbench 4. The Yoga 910 also received a higher score on Crystal Disk Mark compared to the previous model.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 isn’t a gaming laptop, so don’t expect very much of this laptop with demanding modern games like Gears Of War 4. That game is unplayable at about 6 frames per second even on low settings at 720p resolution. If you stick with casual games from the Windows Store, you’ll be fine.
Fan & Temp: –
This device does a good job staying cool. However, the fans are noticeable when they spin. They’re not too loud, but you’ll notice them even if you’re just browsing the web. Watching movies and listening to music easily drown them out through.
The JBL speakers are located at the bottom of the Yoga 910. While I prefer front-facing speakers, these surprisingly sound great. I don’t know if it’s because of the hardware from JBL or the software tuning from Dolby, but I’m not complaining. I also found that YouTue videos and Movies sound and look better when using the Yoga 910 in tent mode.
It comes with Windows 10 Home and I was surprised I didn’t see any nagging bloatware. For example, there’s no McAfee antivirus trial that I usually disable.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 comes with a larger 78 watt-hour battery compared to 66 watt-hours on the previous generation. I consistently get about 10 hours of usage before needing to recharge, so I don’t even bother bringing the power cord whenever I head to the coffee shop. And if you run out of battery, it takes about 3 hours to fully charge the device.
To sum it all up, the Lenovo Yoga 910 brings several improvements over the Yoga 900 which was already a great machine. I love the new all-metal design, including the stiffer hinge, 4K display with less bezel, and an even better keyboard. The edition of Precision Touchpad won’t be noticed by many people, but I’m glad that Lenovo has added that here. The Yoga 910 is a great performer as well and there are no issues with everyday tasks. I also had no problems playing 4K videos or editing images on Photoshop and Lightroom. Just don’t expect to do heavy gaming or video editing on this device.
My biggest complaint with the Yoga 910 isn’t even a major one. I’m not a fan of where Lenovo placed the front-facing camera. It would have been better if it was placed on top, even if it meant adding more bezel on top of the display. Overall, I think anyone looking for a Windows 10 Laptop will be very happy with the Lenovo Yoga 910. It starts at $ 1049.99 with the FHD display and goes up to $1,649.99 with the UHD display, 16GB RAM, and 1TB SSD.
