Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review

The Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro is a unique piece of work. Lenovo didn’t fall into the same trap many manufacturers make in creating tiny boosts for their devices each year, changing only base configurations.

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

For many tablet fans, Apple’s second-generation iPad mini hit the sweet spot. Keeping the bag- and hand-friendly design of the original iPad mini, but adding a Retina display, it replaced standalone ereaders and held the phablet fort until the iPhone 6 Plus arrived. Technology can’t stand still, though, and so 2014 brings the iPad mini 3. With the changes far … Continue reading

Supposing you’ve seen our previous massive tablet reviews, you know SlashGear isn’t about to dismiss a device just because it seems absurd from the outset.
