Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8-inch performance: benchmarks vs reality


Performance is likely the most important thing to consider when purchasing a device. The external hardware can be the best in the biz, but if it doesn’t have sufficient performance to back it up, it loses all of its utility and appeal. Lenovo’s specialty is designing great hardware, but the company has had some performance struggles. How does the Yoga Tablet 2 8-inch hold up? Let’s take a look at some benchmarks and compare them to reality.


Benchmark Test Score
AnTuTU 33392
Quadrant 16620
Geekbench 3 762 (single-thread) 2375 (multi-thread)
AndEBench Pro 6483
3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited 15186
SunSpider 1.0.2 769.8ms

As can be seen, the Yoga Tablet 2 8-inch performs the way we’d expect in benchmarks. It’s good, but not great. Benchmarks should be taken with a grain of salt, however, as they don’t always translate the same way into real world performance.


In everyday situations, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8-inch performs fairly well. The performance won’t blow you away with fluidity, but it won’t ruin the experience for you either. Animations occasionally stutter and apps sometimes take a second or two to open. But the performance issues are minor and likely software-based. Most of the issues could likely be fixed in a patch.

If you’re doing standard activities such as watching content on Netflix or playing simpler games, you shouldn’t run into any problems. Browsing the web is generally smooth and snappy, on par with most of the high-end devices out there. In general, the tablet performs as you would expect a mid-range tablet to. It’s not perfect, but it doesn’t have any glaring issues.
