Lenovo Tab P11 Pro Review: A good companion for media

Lenovo Tab P11 Pro Review

With the price starting at just 500 U.S. Dollars, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is an inspiring Android tablet. It possesses an 11.5-inch OLED screen, a fingerprint scanner, a sleek and slim design, four awesome speakers, and once you purchase it, you’ll get an active stylus and an attractive keyboard cover.

The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro can be used for two very specific purposes. Initially, it serves as a replacement for TV, to watch movies while you are on the bed or the couch during long winter evenings. Amazon has produced many series of tablets, like the Amazon Fire HD 10, with the same purpose, but the materials used for the build-up are different. The Lenovo comes with a complete aluminum unibody design.

Secondly, it is used as a mobile workstation. It possesses weighty straight lines and sharp edges, directly from an industrial design handbook. It will properly fit into any office, home, and when you’re on the go. And the tablet looks complete when used with the keyboard and kickstand case.

Each of these is built with an artificial fiber weave that feels hard-wearing and easy to clean. The kickstand case is held in place with mighty magnets, while the keyboard connects easily with a set of pogo pins that’s on the base. It implies that fiddling with Bluetooth connections when trying to get things done, the connection to the tablet is very solid.

All of these feel pleasant, but the entire package is where things begin to get a bit challenging. The keyboard’s movement and the keen kickstand imply that this won’t be the comfiest or practically ‘lap-able’ option for working for a longer time.

The keyboard itself is basically Lenovo, which doesn’t imply that it possesses the quality of a ThinkPad, but it possesses broad keycaps and fair key travel, particularly for this type of effort and this size point.

The addition of a touchpad seems quite different particularly, as the tablet runs on Android. Its small footprint makes it somewhat complicated to use, and its availability eliminates the chances of an additional row of keys. Altogether, we could have comfortably worked from the merging of the touch screen and the keyboard keys.

Also, Lenovo has improved in ‘smart’ pen feature, the Lenovo Pen sports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and properly tracked our basic doodles. However, it may be effective enough for doodling, there are some reservations regarding whether it will be appropriate for a digital artist, majorly due to the scarcity of either quality or optimized apps of this sort available which works perfectly on Android for tablets.

The absence of a 3.5mm headphone Jack may be quite irritating since it’s a tablet created to be a media companion. The bezels around the screen are thin, although the added panel is bigger even for a tablet. Its footprint is little but it feels so classy when it’s in the hand. This is due to the attractively thin nature of the device which is 5.8mm thick, so it should properly fit into a bag.

Another awesome feature added is the face scanner, which serves the purpose of protecting face unlock logins from the lock screen. But it was discovered that the fingerprint scanner/power button was faster and more secure than the face scanner. 

Lenovo Tab P11 Pro Performance

The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro internally possesses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 GB octa-core processor. It can be gotten with 4GB to 6GB of RAM and about 128GB of internal storage. Also, Lenovo is selling versions with LTE.  

The performance of P11 Pro is better than other entry-level tablets in benchmarks like Geekbench 4, 5, and 3DMark. It’s more powerful than Galaxy Tab S5e. Because the Snapdragon 730 is a higher mid-range chip, the Galaxy Tab S7 keeps getting faster.

During the gaming test, almost all the games run pretty well, and the graphics looked awesome and smooth. This tablet also supports Fortnite. For it to run smoothly and without interruptions, the graphics must be medium. Doing that makes playing Fortnite awesome. Well, it doesn’t look as attractive as on higher-end devices, certainly, but it runs accurately.

It’s a good gaming tablet. But it’s obviously not the best. Especially when playing demanding games, you’ll have to deal with lower graphics.

Asides from all that, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 is a swift processor. Combined with the 6GB RAM, it can handle multitasking well. Using Chrome with many tabs, editing images with Lightroom, and using Chrome and YouTube simultaneously works perfectly well.

Lenovo Tab P11 Pro Battery Life

The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro has incredible battery life. This makes the tablet suitable for long-distance travel, it will definitely be a fantastic companion for regular fliers. The awesome addition of a relatively fast charger in the box makes charging easier. Charging an 8,600mAh battery is significantly assuring, so this type of charger is necessary.

With its massive battery capacity, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro can keep being active, regardless of what you use it for, making it a great option for long journeys and when a charger isn’t closely available. This tablet possesses an awesome display and wonderful speakers, so it will make a good living room companion.

Android on tablets do experience consistent bugs, interruptions, and inconveniences, and there’s no sign of the issue being resolved. If you get easily irritated then, this device is not suitable for you. The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is lots of things, but irrespective of the ‘Pro’ in its name, it isn’t a processing powerhouse. It’s suitable for media but less suitable for gaming or any other demanding task.
