Lenovo Yoga 720 (15-inch) review

 

You've never seen a 2-in-1 laptop this powerful

Unparalleled 2-in-1 performance ; Competitive battery life ; Snappy trackpad and keyboard ; Sturdy hinge

No USB-C charging ; No HDMI or SD card slot ; Down-firing speakers

The 15-inch Lenovo Yoga 720 is an excellent value for what’s on offer. Albeit with only a 1080p screen, the model we reviewed is well-designed and more powerful than its closest rivals without skimping on the battery life.

Lenovo Yoga 720 15-inch review

 

Lenovo's Yoga 720 15 is a powerful 2-in-1, but the display is mediocre and battery life suffers.

Lenovo Yoga 720 (15-inch) Review

 

The Lenovo Yoga 720 is a powerful convertible, thanks to its Nvidia GeForce GTX GPU and Core i7 CPU, and it has longer battery life than its competitors.

Sharp, vivid display; Balanced audio; Strong productivity and graphics performance; Long battery life

A bit heavier than other 2-in-1s; Plain design

Lenovo YOGA 720 15″ Review: a sleek but heavy Windows laptop

 

This year has brought one of the most beautiful and capable Lenovo YOGA laptops we've seen so far: the YOGA 720. This laptop -- the 15" version, in this case -- sports a sleek all-metal body alongside an Ultra HD glossy display, powerful graphics, and...

Premium metal design ; Excellent touchscreen display and keyboard ; Fingerprint sensor + Windows Hello support ; Good battery life, USB-C ; Great hardware options

Too heavy to comfortably carry ; Gets smudged easily ; No SD or HDMI ports

Lenovo Yoga 720-15IKB (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

 

Convertible Powerhouse. The Lenovo Yoga line has long been the leader in the 2-in-1 notebook market. With the redesigned Yoga 720, the Chinese manufacturer looks to expand that dominance. Can the 15-inch model be flexible enough for consumers, or will...

solid, well-built chassis ; great keyboard ; uniform colors ; great maintenance/upgrade options ; pressure-sensitive pen support wth Windows Ink ; exceptional GPU performance ; pleasing speakers

middling port selection ; screen not suitable for outdoor use ; CPU throttles under load ; heavy and big to use as a tablet

The Lenovo Yoga 15 can be aptly described as a "jack of all trades, master of none." It straddles several different notebook categories and does well in each, but overall makes some compromises to accommodate such a broad range of scenarios. It's a...

Lenovo Yoga 720 (15-inch) Review and Ratings

 

Lenovo answers a highly specific need—an oversized 2-in-1 with enough graphics gumption for gaming—with the affordable 15.6-inch Yoga 720, but we have a couple of nits to pick.

Lively performance, even for 1080p gaming ; Good battery life

Bulky and heavy in tablet mode ; Ugly keyboard layout ; External monitor requires adapter ; Runs hot

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Excellent laptop. I would have given 5 * if the battery life was higher i.e. 10 h +.
