The Android variant bodes well, however Lenovo is not utilizing the most recent form of Android and has put its own skin on top of Marshmallow rather, she noted.

The Yoga Book "draws the eye like no other tablet or portable workstation accessible today," composed Alex Cranz for Gizmodo.

Still, it "feels ... more like a crazy diversion device," she proceeded.

 "There's next to no about the outline of this Yoga Book that doesn't shout premium," composed Android Central's Russell Holly. "In the event that you truly need Android to run your tablet and couldn't care less that applications are going to get into mischief left and right, this is beyond question the [device] for you." However, the Windows variant is "a considerable measure simpler to suggest."
