This is the Lenovo Yoga C630 Review, It’s a Laptop designed to allow you work on the move without any restrictions, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850, runs on Windows 10 S, has 8GB RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. In the box, you have everything you need to get started, including a charger and an optional digital pen or stylus.
The c630 is impressively thin because it’s fanless, not only does it allow Lenovo to create something so light and thin, it’s also super quiet and remains cool. It’s 12.5mm thin and weighs just 1.2kg. Thanks to its metal body, it also feels very solid and premium; despite its thinness, it’s still pretty robust. It’s also very flexible, you can go full 360 turning the Yoga C630 into a tablet device, you can also turn it into tent mode or go flat.
This is particularly useful for those who may be one moment they are replying to emails, next they just want to use the digital pen or tent mode for viewing content. For video calls, there’s a webcam available too. If there’s anything with the design, it would be that bottom bezel, but it’s useful for when using it in tablet mode, providing somewhere for you to grip it. Due to how thin it is, you’re also limited on the number of ports available; you get a USB-C port and a headphone/microphone port on the right side and on the left is a USB C port and a SIM card tray.
The Yoga C630’s display is decent, it’s not the best in the world but for a laptop this thin and portable, it does a decent job. With a 1080p panel, you can enjoy watching videos and creating content on the move. It’s not so bright, especially in bright, sunlight conditions and the glare can be annoying at times. Typing on the C630 is a joy, although it could be down to your preference I find it has a decent travel, it’s stiff enough for typing quickly.
The C630’s audio is above average too, it’s loud enough to not need a pair of headphones at home or in the office. For performance, I find the C630 to be more than capable of day to day tasks, like emails, Google suite, YouTube, sketching and general browsing with multiple tabs open. Where it struggles is trying to play games, which it’s not intended for and with Windows 10 S on there, you have no access to apps like Lightroom for simple photo editing.
If you ask me who the C630 is for, I’d say it’s for those who aren’t trying to game on the go, edit photos or videos on the move. It has a Snapdragon X20 LTE modem so you can stay connected without worrying about WiFi hotspots and it has an excellent battery life upwards of 24 hours plus, before having to charge it again on heavy use. For around £929.99 in the UK plus a SIM card, it’s pricey, but it has a specific user in mind, and if that’s not you then there are plenty of other options out there but you will miss out on 4G connectivity and that long battery life.
