We rely on the Internet for almost everything we do these days from ordering meals and connecting with friends, to hosting work meetings and gaining new knowledge. A technology device is no longer something we use for just a single purpose but more like a close companion that helps us manage various aspects of our life. Hence, when selecting a device, it’s necessary to consider not just its ability to perform certain functions but also how it complements our overall lifestyle.
In addition, many of us have undergone a change in our day-to-day routine since the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, more of us are working remotely and security functions like screen blur can provide an extra layer of protection in public areas. Alternatively, those who are working from home might prefer a 2-in-1 device that switches easily from work mode during the day to play mode at night. Parents, on the other hand, might appreciate a smart tablet that can be mobilised easily throughout the home.
With this, Lenovo wants to help you find your ideal device that not only meets your needs but also serves as a companion that fits seamlessly into your daily life. Let’s take a look at how Lenovo’s devices with Smarter Technology offer intuitive user experience to all.
We’ve all been there: it’s a busy day at work and we’re actively juggling between tasks with multiple applications running simultaneously. Your laptop freezes and by the time you get your laptop running again, you are no longer in the zone.
With Lenovo’s smarter technology, your computer device is specifically designed to optimise performance in various situations. Lenovo Q-Control as found on the Yoga 9i and Yoga Slim 7i Carbon allows users to ramp up the power to maximum and shift into performance mode for heavy-duty tasks. Meanwhile, you can always go into stealth mode for reduced fan noise on movie nights with a toggle on the FN + Q button.
Moreover, devices like the IdeaPad Slim 5 are equipped with the Rapid Charge Express technology that offers up to three hours of use with just a quick 15-minute charge. This way, you won’t have to worry about running out of battery if you need to make a quick dash for a coffee run from your meetings.
Our lives are so integrated with technology, it’s likely that our whole life is on our device including work reports, personal records, and so forth. Hence, it’s important to keep our documents protected and secure, as well as prevent people from accessing such data especially when we’re working in public areas.
With the flip-to-boot function, simply lift the display lid and your device instantly boots to Windows 10. It uses facial recognition technology to grant users access instead of a conventional password.
As a lot of our meetings are conducted virtually these days, intuitive security functions can prove to be very useful for protecting personal privacy. One such function is the background blur which uses Smart AI to blur the background when the camera is turned on for capturing photos or video calls. This helps safeguard the location of users especially within public spaces.
Some of the devices like the Yoga 9i and Yoga Slim 7i Carbon even come with an AI-powered attention-sensing software – Glance by Mirametrix which recognises when the user is looking away and automatically blurs on-screen content.
With more people working from home, our devices have begun to wear a lot of hats – virtual workplace, theatre, concert stadium, gaming outlet, and more. During the day, we spend a lot of our time working in front of the screen and once we clock off from work, the device doubles as a source of entertainment as we lounge on the couch.
To help you fully immerse yourself in an indulgent cinematic experience, the Super Resolution 2.0 feature automatically upscales your videos up to 4K resolution on Windows Media Player and Google Chrome web browser.
Other intuitive functions include the time-of-flight sensor which is incorporated in devices like the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon that captures user presence and adjusts the laptop’s behaviour for greater security and ease-of-use. For example, when the user walks away, the device intuitively dims and locks the screen while the video pauses. The laptop is able to sense the user’s return and automatically lights up the display and resumes playback.
Regardless of whether students attend online or physical classes, they would still be highly dependent on their computer devices for completing homework, learning new skills, and so forth. Students of all ages, from those in primary school to those who are about to receive their doctorates, spend a lot of time in front of the screen these days. So, an ideal learning device needs to offer a perfect balance of performance, portability, and security.
Hence, it’s important to invest in a device that helps you get the best out of your learning experience without compromising on your comfort and privacy. Smart learning features like the smart noise cancelling feature uses three different modes to tune out unwanted background echoes and deliver your voice loud and clear. The Eye Care feature keeps your eyes safe, fresh, and healthy even under conditions that may call for increased screen time. Eye Care ensures that the display lowers harmful blue light when appropriate, to reduce strain on the eyes.
Aside from helping students thrive, learning devices like the IdeaPad Slim 3i, IdeaPad Slim 5, IdeaPad Slim 5 Pro, and IdeaPad Flex 5 take into account the safe usage of technology. For instance, Lenovo Aware is a software designed to promote the healthy use of technology and proactively assists the user to maintain a healthy lifestyle. To help you keep track of your progress, a weekly or monthly report provides you with statistics, including daily cumulative PC usage time, posture, and distance status. This feature would also be helpful for parents to keep an eye on their young children.
There are times when we would need a shared family device so everyone could get involved in an activity, be it learning to bake through online tutorials or singing along to music videos in a car on a road trip. The Lenovo Smart Tab M10 with Google Assistant is hailed as one of the most versatile among other smart tabs that provides mobile entertainment when hand-held.
When you dock your tablet on the Smart Charging Station, you can easily control smart home devices and quickly access your most important updates with Google Assistant’s Ambient Mode on voice command, making it the perfect device for managing your home.
Meanwhile, Lenovo’s Kids Mode offers dedicated kids’ content, parental controls, eye protection features, posture, and bumpy environment alerts to encourage a healthy viewing gesture. It is also intentionally designed to be thin, ultra-light, and super portable and comes with a face unlock feature for extra login security.
