Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro hands-on: Smaller and more refined

At IFA 2015, we got a hands-on look at the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro. Lenovo is calling the ultimate video tablet. It's got a 10-inch display, a built-in 70-inch projector, and four front-facing speakers. Watch our hands-on video to see it action.

An improvement in the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro over its predecessor is the placement of its projector. It has moved to the kickstand. It is rotatable up to 180-degrees so you can beam it to a wall or lay it flat to project to the ceiling. The display consists of a 10.1-inch QHD (2560x1600) screen at 299 pixels per inch. There are also 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras.

The Lenovo Tab 3 Pro runs Android 5.1 with Quad-Core Intel Atom x 5-Z8500 processor up to 2.24 GHz. It has 2GB RAM with up to 32GB internal storage and expandable with a microSD slot. You also still get the kick-ass speakers, though for the Pro 3, Lenovo put the subwoofer along the front with the speakers, thus allowing a slight redesign around the back.

The Tab 3 Pro feels pretty sleek with premium materials such as aluminum and a leather-like fabric back. Lenovo placed the large battery and kickstand on the side of the device, shifting the center of gravity. It's also thicker than it's predecessor as Lenovo tells us it had to put two batteries in this time round to commit to the 18 hour battery life claim. There are multiple ways to use it. You can hold, tilt, stand, and hang, just as with last years models.

The 10-inch Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro will start selling in November for 499 Euros. An LTE model will also be made available in the future. Are you interested? Sound off in the comments!
