Lenovo Yoga C630 13 (4G) Review#laptop #pc
The lenovo yoga 13 is one of the most affordable laptops available with 4g support and a two in one form factor factor in the super, long battery life and ultra portable design, and this becomes a great option for students. Imidlertid, its worth bearing in mind that the arm architecture suffers compatibility issues with 64 bit applications and isnt very powerful when compared to more traditional laptops at the same price point the lenovo yoga c6313 is the latest 4g enabled notebook to run using a qualcomm mobile processor. If that sets off alarm bells it should, in the past we found that, while the low powered cpu provides a stellar battery life compatibility issues with the chips arm, architecture and windows, software can make carrying out even basic tasks a bit of a paint. This plus hefty upfront costs resulted in key arm laptops and tablets, such as the surface pro x and hp and vx2 failing to wow us. When the lenovo yoga c630 first arrived last year carrying a 900 pounds plus price tag, we were concerned. History was going to repeat itself, but thanks to a moderate price cut this year, the laptop has become pretty decent value. Just dont expect it to do anything beyond basic office, work and web browsing. The lenovo yoga c630 sports a fairly unassuming design, but will be instantly familiar to yoga users of the past. It features a basic dark gray, mixed magnesium and aluminum alloy clamshell design and also comes with a 360 hinge.
This lets you fold the screen round to resemble a slightly chunky tablet or prop it up into a freestanding tent mode. The latter is particularly useful when using the device to watch tv and movies when traveling on a train or plane the design isnt groundbreaking, but it has a pleasingly premium, feel for a 700 pounds device open it up and youll be treated to dinky screen bezels side Facing twin speakers and a fingerprint scanner using the device, as my work and personal laptop for a week, i was impressed with the c600 3013s build quality. It survived being lugged around london in my satchel and an accidental encounter with the corner of a table without any noticeable damage. The only downside for work users is the lack of any full sized usb ports. I stedet, you get two side facing usbc inputs, a sim tray and a 3.0 millimeters jack. This is fairly standard, but the lack of a thunderbolt will be an issue for those who want to connect the device to a monitor. Id have also liked to have seen. Lenovo. Add an sd card slot in the uk, the c634g is available with only 128 gigabytes of storage which, if youre not careful, can be filled fairly quickly, even with basic office use. The c600 3013s keyboard is the one area that feels a little cheap. Although the keys are suitably spread out, the sheikly keyboard feels fairly shallow and doesnt offer much tactile feedback.
Derudover, the case noticeably flexes when met with even moderately heavy typing as such the keyboard is fine for taking notes and basic office work, but you wouldnt want to write a novel on it. The track pad is more impressive, its suitably large and while i couldnt find anything to indicate whether or not its microsoft precision certified it feels responsive and easily recognized multi touch inputs throughout testing. I experienced no issues using it to edit essays and navigate the laptops windows. 10 os the active pen also performs well, i used it to doodle quick sketches and take notes in windows stickers. I never once noticed any latency. I found it was more than sensitive enough note that the c63013s 1.2 kilogram weight also makes it light enough to comfortably carry and use as a digital notepad, which is an added boon for students. My only quibble is that theres no way to dock the pen to the laptop, which is a pain if you plan to use it on the go on more than one occasion. I forgot to take it with me to the office. The c63013 4g comes with a 13.3 inch fhd resolution 1920 x 1080 touchscreen display, unlike more expensive yoga, theres no 4k option at the c630s 700 pounds rrp, men, its more than forgivable to the naked eye. The screen is more than good enough, its fairly bright and sharp enough to read web pages and carry out basic office tasks.
The only obvious issue is that whites look a little muddy for my liking and the glass becomes reflective fairly quickly, but both issues are ones youll experience on most laptops at this price. My experience testing the screen with our lab colorimeter mirrored my real world findings. Det 245 nit max brightness isnt anything to write home about even by 400 pounds laptop standards, but coupled with the 0.2 knit black level, it gives the screen a reasonably dynamic. 1294 1 kontrastforhold, thats good enough to ensure tv and netflix content, looks okay. The 6254k color temperature is also actually closer to the 6500k ideal than i expected, like all laptops at this price. Color gamut coverage is nowhere close to where it should be for creative work. Det 93 srgb is fine for regular office work, but the displays below 65 coverage of the adobe and dci p3 gamuts means the screen isnt accurate enough for any work that will be printed as physical media, given the fact the cpu isnt sufficiently powerful for anything but Basic photo cropping – this is hardly a deal. Breaker performance is a key issue with most arm based windows, laptops and convertibles ive tested generally. This remains the case with the c600 330 13 4G, which runs using last years, qualcomm snapdragon, 850 chipset and eight gigabytes of lpddr4x ram. The device is powerful enough for basic tasks such as office, work, notation and netflix streaming, but trying to do anything more demanding caused it to tap out.
I managed to install creative software onto the device, but i had enough time to make and half drink a cup of tea whilst trying to open, let alone use it. The fact the c630 13 will only run 32 Bit. Apps also means several regular services, including most of trusted reviews standard. Benchmarking tests wont run on this device. The only one i could get working was geekbench 5, where the c600 33013 achieved the below par score, with even the poorly received surface pro x scoring better. The huawei mate book d14 sees far better scores too and is available at a cheaper price. The only thing in the yogas favor here is its two in one form factor and 4g compatibility. 4G coverage was fine with a 3 sim during testing running a speed test. Whilst out and about away from a wifi signal, it managed the same speeds as the oneplus 7t. Pro i had to hand battery life is traditionally the one area in which arm laptops and tablets beat their intel and amd rivals. Gudskelov, this is true of the yoga. C600 3013, which comes with a quoted 25 hour battery life, trusted review standard battery benchmark doesnt work on arm systems, so we tested it by synthetically looping a video file with the screen brightness set to 150 nits running this test. The laptop lasted an impressive 20 22 hours on average, which is more than double what youd usually find with a modern ultrabook in real world use.
I found the laptop easily made it through two full days of use. This entailed using the c600 3013 as my main work machine throughout a regular workday, then for sporadic web browsing and an hour of netflix in the evening on we5. If youre after a laptop for basic web browsing word, processing and netflix, then you could do far worse than the lenovo yoga. C600. 3013. 4G. The device has a wonderfully premium lightweight design, a decent screen and a marathon battery life. The biggest downside is that its arm based snapdragon 850 Cpu, is pretty sluggish and will only be able to handle basic tasks. Despite running on windows, the performance of this portable is comparable to a chromebook to a full fat ultrabook. This would be fine if the yoga c630, 13 Omkostninger 500 pounds or less, men på 700 pounds its pricier than more powerful laptops, such as the huawei matebook, d14. Theres still reason to buy the lenovo yoga, c600, 330, 13 being one of the most affordable devices with 4g support and the two in one form factor on the market.
