Design:

It is obvious that if you are paying a premium amount, you want a gadget that looks and feels like its price. Lenovo has done a fascinating job with the designing of Lenovo Yoga 920. No doubt that Lenovo Yoga 920 is a design first device. It has a delicate and bulky feel to it with a weight of 1.37 kilograms and having a measurement of 12.7 x 8.8 x 0.5 inches. It has a nice capacity without feeling any sort of heavyweight.

The Lenovo yoga 920 feels adroitly slim and trim. The Yoga 920 has a bronze metallic finish. Besides the shine, the spontaneous lines, the Lenovo yoga 920 has an appealing and attractive watchband-style hinge, which allows you to bend the display all the way around to convert it into a tablet. The hinge itself is very delicate and has a classy look which holds on the 13.9 inches display regularly. The hinge can flip the screen a full 180 degrees which are stupendous and even if the screen is flipped all the way back it still feels slim and smart. If you want a device you can use as a tablet and a laptop as well. It comes in three charming colors which are silver, bronze and dark graphite. The webcam at the top and central position is worth seeing.

display: 

The 13.9 inches IPS display of Lenovo yoga 920 with its 5 mm bezels on the top and sides are a pleasure to look at. The 720p webcam of Lenovo yoga 920 was moved from the thicker bottom bezel where it was placed on the predecessor yoga 910 to a more typical position above the display and it is a good transformation for all Skype users. Handling the laptop brightness to the up we got to  260 nits, we only consider 250 nits acceptable for indoor viewing. This means that watching the Lenovo yoga 920 screen outside might be a little squinch for the eyes. The gamma is perfect at 2.2 that means the video will be neither too dark nor too dull. The display of Lenovo Yoga 920 is enjoyable on a regular day to day use. Colors are good enough for the creative work and videos are brighter enough. The Lenovo Yoga 920 display is remarkable and we mean it.

Battery life:

A 79 watt-hour battery was provided in the Lenovo Yoga 910 but we are astonished that Lenovo reduced the battery life of yoga 920 to 70 watt-hour, which is not a welcoming sight. After some macro test, it was known that the Lenovo yoga 920 offers a battery life of strong 12 hours and 22 minutes which includes continuous web surfing over the internet and it is approximately 4 hours longer than the category average which is 8:25. It is around 2 hours better than the Lenovo Yoga 910. Lenovo has done a great job in improving the battery life more than they did in Lenovo yoga 910. 

Ports:

Well talking about ports, there is a total of 4 ports on the Lenovo Yoga 920. A 3.0 USB-A port for legacy support is designed on the right side, two USB C ports which support thunderbolt 3 making them faster are designed on the left side and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

Audio:

The Lenovo yoga 920 provides a high-quality audio performance that is free from exaggeration, loud and strong enough to fill a small room enough to dance to. The Lenovo Yoga 920 comes with a 2 JBL speaker. The speakers are placed under the front corner of this book. The sound quality is impressive and has some bass. The sound quality is good enough to watch a movie or listening to music. The sound quality is comparatively better than yoga 910.

Keyboard and touchpad:

The Lenovo Yoga 920 has an emblematic, slim and delicate keyboard in which the keys have only 1.3 millimeters of vertical travel. The keys gave a shallow feel however the keys are a little hollow but they are nowhere near the apples latest laptops. There is a slight curve on the bottom of each key of Lenovo yoga 920 which softens the look of the entire inside keyboard. The 4.1 x 2.7-inch touchpad contributed to accurate navigation all over the desktop. It also reacted evenly and authentically to multitouch actions such as pinch-to-zoom and three-finger swipe. We are glad that there is no flex in the keyboard and the touchpad.

Webcam:

The webcam is placed on the top of the bezel in a central position. In Lenovo yoga 910 the webcam was placed on the bottom bezel which led to unfavorable shots and most importantly, people were not happy with that placement. Now when the camera is housed at the top, the video looks more natural using the VoIP software. With the replacement of webcams, Skype users are happier than anyone else. The high-quality video offers us to connect with friends, family, and colleagues easily via Skype.

The standard resolution is (1920 x 1080) panel while the high resolution (3840 x 2160) panel. The standard screen looks brilliant for all kind of work especially when it comes to multimedia.
