Does the Yoga 2 13 (non-pro) have the same yellow and wifi issues?

2014-04-14, 21:47 PM

I keep reading forum posts about the mustard-y yellows and wifi issues related to the Yoga 2 Pro, but I haven't been able to find any in-depth reviews about the new Yoga 2 13. It seems to have the same wifi card, so does it have the same disconnection problems? And can anyone comment about the quality of the yellows on the screen? Thanks.

 

Edit: I found this review, which seems to say that the yellow issues from the Yoga 2 Pro are fixed in the Yoga 2 13: http://www.digitalversus.com/laptop/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-2-13-3-p18512/test.html#full-review . They list the wifi as stable, but they said the same thing for the Yoga 2 Pro, so I don't know what to think. Can anyone confirm whether or not the wifi is stable?

It has a different display, so I doubt it will suffer from the same yellow issue.

 

People have reported the same wifi issues.

I have the Yoga 2 13 (non-pro) and happy to report that the yellow is actually yellow!

I have a Yoga 2 Pro which I just got a week ago, and the BIOS update + latest Energy Management have fixed the yellow.  Everything looks fine next to my two desktop IPS monitors.  Image attached below.  There's a difference in display calibration between all 3 monitors, so all 3 have different shades of yellow.  But they all look good for normal use.

 

WiFi issues: none so far.  Been considering getting a new card for the additional 5GHz band to replace the current one, but no real need yet.  No dropped connections, and WiFi browsing has been very smooth.

To my eyes, the yellow on the lenovo still has a shade of green.  I like the yellow on the top right  monitor best.

My Yoga 2 Pro has no issues with the WiFi. Has always worked like a charm.

 

The Yoga 2 Pro uses a pentile display, you can read more about it here. Couldn't find anything about the Yoga 2 13, but it uses a regular IPS display panel.

Kind regards,

I bought the Y 2 13 (non-pro) because of the display issues with the Y2P (scaling, yellow, performance) and the price $799.

 

This reviewer gave the Y2 13 a better rating than the Y2P because of the display.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2, Somehow Better Than The Yoga 2 Pro

 

He said that the contrast ratio on the Y 2 13 was twice as good as the Y2P.  The color fidelity delta was 3.2 versus 7.6 of the Y2P (< 3 is great).   The Windows Experience Index of the Y 2 13 is higher than the Y2P because of one of the graphics numbers.

"To my eyes, the yellow on the lenovo still has a shade of green.  I like the yellow on the top right  monitor best."

 

Hmm, I don't know...I'm a graphics professional myself, and colors are going to be different from display to display. This doesn't seem that harsh to me. It seems within the bounds for error, kind of like how one TV might not have as good color as another.

 

For my money it looks good enough for some light graphic work. I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on a Y2P refurb and this is very encouraging.

 

For others, would you say that this yellow problem has mostly been fixed? The posts I'm finding about it seem to be mostly coming from last year.

Yes, I'm pretty sure the yellow is fixed.  It's really a noticeable difference between the mode that doesn't provide enough brightness to the yellow and the mode that does.  It's the difference between dim ("mustard") yellow and the normal yellow.  If you stick with the Balanced battery profile (which you can tweak too), the yellow gets enough illuimnation.  As for color difference, I'm sure calibration will help any display.  It looks good to me even without, but I'll probably calibrate mine at some point soon, as I do casual photography and want my photographs to look consistent between my devices.
