The Lenovo Yoga Book will arrive in a variant with the system Chrome OS

The third one can be beaten. Both variant with Windows 10 as the Android of the Lenovo Yoga Book are really appealing devices, but both are in a somewhat indeterminate space. And the Chinese manufacturer has attempted to balance the product specifications to work on either of the two platforms, however, that intermediate location difficult to identify with both. Chrome OS may be, in this regard, a good alternative.

The Lenovo Yoga Book is an exceptional Android tablet in terms of technical features, but its design is to produce content profiling a limited task on a mobile operating system. On the other hand, the variant Windows 10 is perfect when working, especially for its great design and the Halo keyboard very thin and ergonomic. The downside is that the Intel Atom processor X5-Z8550 maybe is a little behind if we need to move some heavy minimally program.

Chrome OS Lenovo Yoga Book, a terminal dedicated to education

Precisely the Chromebook are triumphing in the United States associated with the field of education, for its virtues in this area. They are portable light, whose experience revolves around services Google cloud capable of providing excellent students collaborative tools such as Drive, Keep, Gmail and, of course, absolute integration with the search.

In fact, we ourselves have analyzed in some post the possibility that the Chromebook is the replacement of the tablet for Google, especially considering that something seems to move with Andromeda and the project of the Nexus July 2016 is almost completely ruled out. Just missing the Mountain View signature.

The third way will arrive in 2017, in the middle?

It seems that this model with Chrome OS will debut during the next year 2017, according to what our fellow pose the Android Libre; but it will have to see if at that time Lenovo decides to improve some benefits of Yoga Book and get a processor X7 to increase performance slightly. Anyway, the device is exceptional and since we have dedicated some post to admire its most special features.

Moto M vs Huawei G9 Plus: comparative

Another phablet we can not help but face the new Moto M in a comparative is the Huawei G9 Plus, one of the most popular mid – range phablets. It also is an interesting matchup especially for those who are always looking to get the best value / price, as they are the work of two manufacturers who have always excelled in this section precisely. Who is the one who has done better this time? Which of the two You would be you? We help you decide if you do not have it yet clear reviewing the technical specifications of both.


The mid – range devices of Huawei have always taken advantage of by Motorola in the section design simply (and regardless of our personal taste) by the fact of using metal housing, but the Moto M has been updated in this section and it has nothing to envy in this regard to G9 Plus. The two also have, of course, fingerprint reader.


It is also very even fight with respect to dimensions, with minimal differences in both size (15.14 x 7.54 cm versus 15.18 x 7.57 cm), and thickness (7.9 mm versus to 7.3 mm) and weight ( 163 grams versus 155 grams ). Maybe we could give as winner G9 Plus, which is somewhat thinner and lighter, but just barely.


The draw is an all in the section screen, as usually happens when comparing phablets midrange since most have opted for the 5.5 – inch and virtually none low and resolution Full HD (1920 x 1080), as in this case. The pixel density of both is therefore also identical (401 PPI).


Again, getting back ahead the G9 Plus to reach the section of performance, but the difference is not too great at this time, and basically boils down to mount a processor Qualcomm something more powerful (Snapdragon 625 eight – core and 2 0 GHz frequency versus Snapdragon 617 eight – core and 1.5 GHz). Both have 3 GB of RAM.

Storage capacity

In the section of storage capacity we meet again with identical technical specifications: both have 32 GB of internal memory and two give us the option to expand further externally through card micro-SD, which should be more than enough to meet the needs of most users.


Nor in paragraph camera it is easy to tilt the balance from one side or the other and, in fact, if we limit the number of megapixels we find that in both cases we have a main camera of 16 MP and a front of 8 MP. The G9 Plus has going for some small details, though, as is the available optical image stabilizer.


Autonomy is one of the areas where we could meet a clear winner, even though we can not say anything for sure until we see independent tests, because the G9 Plus part with a substantial advantage in terms of capacity battery ( 3340 mAh vs. 3050 mAh ) and there is little reason to expect a consumption too different.


As we mentioned in the comparison above, the Moto M all we have at the moment is the price in China, equivalent to about 270 euros, and normal, as you know, is that the figure is higher when you land officially in Spain. The Huawei G9 Plus, meanwhile, sold of 320 euros, so probably we will find that ultimately the difference is quite small. In any case, pued not say anything for sure until the launch of the new phablet Motorola in our country is not officially announce something we do not know exactly when it will happen.

Phablets high end at a reasonable price: alternatives to the iPhone in July and Pixel Plus XL

We are already used to seeing flagships whose prices easily exceed 800 and 900 euros, which has justified sometimes be called even “ultra-high – end” but it is still perfectly possible to find phablets high end with more reasonable prices, especially if we look to models launched a few months ago (even if we are willing to accept some slightly older even), to which must be added the best of the phablet low-cost reaching us from China. We look at a few of the most interesting options that we can find right now with maximum price of around 600 euros.

Galaxy S7 Edge

Let’s start with one of the most expensive on the list options, but also one of the most levels: the Galaxy S7 Edge is responsible for filling the gap left by the Galaxy Note 7 and one of the advantages that can make us forget the model S Pen, it is that its price is considerably lower. This is one of those models that were launched a few months ago and worthwhile to bear in mind, because he has little to envy the most recent and can be found without too much difficulty for around 600 euros.

iphone 7 vs pixel xl

For that price we can enjoy what is still one of the best cameras on a mobile, with pixels of 1.4 microns and f / 1.7, which expetos still consider the best screen (a Super AMOLED Quad HD ) with added attraction of side bends and a powerful processing ( Exynos 8890 ) that accompany 4 GB of RAM.
