Design & Build
Lenovo Yoga S730 gives a minimalistic look with its sleek and trim design that encapsulates the 11.9 mm thinness like a pro. Now that every other laptop is based on the slim and thin look, the Yoga series laptop packages with more style than ever. The aluminium body is surfaced across the build, which in actual is the foundation of a sturdier build. Even though the laptop feels very light and easy to fall, the overall casing is sturdy enough to survive any knocks and bumps.
The laptop also bends to an almost 180-degree angle, so you can lay it flat on the ground or desk. More so, the drop-down hinge is made with exclusive Lenovo design that feels stunning. The lid can be pleasantly opened with one hand, and you will not always need two hands to open the display. Additionally, the laptop feels light in hand keeping in the portability factor and feels premium from the outer design layout.
The compact display of 13.3-inch features an IPS full HD panel that comes off as a solid screen interface for better viewing angles. There is no 4k screen option in this device which leaves the IPS panel as the only option in the display. The pixel-density of 165 ppi stands out to be traditional, but the glossy display makes a few reflection issues to come under the sunlight.
The Real Performance
The specs on the paper of Lenovo Yoga S730 seems to appeal with its rock-solid speed and overall potential. The real tests showed that the Core i7 processor equipped in the Lenovo Yoga runs with a base speed of 1.8GHz and reached the maximum turbo speed of 4.8 GHz. Simply put, this speed level was incredible to run any kind of program or application even in its highest intervals.
The solid-state drive of 512GB is combined with the 8GB RAM to solder a rocking multitasking scenario. We opened 12 tabs on Google Chrome and played our favourite Netflix season on the application along with the Microsoft Visual Studio software. And the Yoga S730 incurred exactly no lags at all, with no slowdowns in the system.
The battery promised by Lenovo in this Yoga series laptop is around 12 hours. When we played the laptop on real analysis, the laptop was able to last longer than 9 hours. We can say it lived until almost 10 hours with continuous web surfing and playback. So, it’s still an admirable battery power for all-day users. You wouldn’t really feel the need to plug the charger throughout the day whether you are a wild laptop user.
The Final Verdict
The Lenovo Yoga S730 stands up to its price factor strongly without any doubt. Not only the laptop entices the audience with its appeal and structure, but the powerful performance also gages it to be a solid laptop. The best thing is that you can avail this laptop at discounted prices with the approaching holiday sale 2020. Five Tech UK is offering 50 pounds off of the laptop, so you can get it around £829.99.
