With all the tablets on the market, Lenovo takes a step to differentiate itself with its Yoga Tablet. The Yoga Tablet has a kickstand, which allows for an easy grip, a much larger battery and a stand for watching movies. The larger battery allows for 18 hours of battery life—that’s 40 per cent longer than most of its competitors. The front-facing Dolby Atmos speakers were amazing for watching movies and grooving to the latest beats. The kickstand with retractable stand made for easy hands-free video calling, watching movies and taking selfies. Although I found the display quality not as good as some of its competitors, for a tablet under $230 this is a sound buy. $229.99, bestbuy.ca
