In 2021, the tablet market is practically the same as the years: immobilized. The iPad is strong as a family of best-selling and most well-known devices, but the rest of the space is hotly contested.
Amazon, Samsung and Huawei are key players here, and everyone has a niche to work with – and here comes Lenovo to try his luck.
The earliest game you chose was the Tab P11 Pro, which stood out as a direct competitor to Samsung in particular.
With a 2K OLED screen, four stereo speakers and a large battery, this will definitely appeal to moviegoers, but it also has a sleeve up.
For business customers who like the revered line of ThinkPad computers, perhaps the P11 Pro supports the ‘Lenovo Pen’ and has a very smart looking keyboard case with stand.
The aforementioned canvas is also a jewel. Expanding to 11.5 inches with a aspect ratio of 16:10, the tablet is larger than it looks and displays high widescreen content.
OLED technology means that colors are vigorous and blacks are infinite, however, the screen also has accurate colors. It is bright enough for indoor use (up to 500 nits) and can be seen outdoors in bright sunlight.
With high resolution, the reading is especially pleasant as there is no unlimited text. For movies, reading and games, this is an excellent panel – the most improvement is the high refresh rate.
Quad speakers also performed well. They are very loud and make good stereo separation without distorting too much.
The bass in particular is a highlight, though there are details in the mids and triplets, so they are especially suited for action films.
Audiophiles can be frustrated by omitting a 3.5mm headset – the inability to use wired audio, especially on a home or office device, is an irritating nuisance.
The build quality is excellent. The tablet is built with a Monoblock design with a sturdy aluminum feel. There is no creeping or bending and the weight is appealing without looking too heavy.
Color options are limited; However, it seems to be used in an office or living room, and orientation is not a priority for any use cases.
But software mess, or more precisely, Android on tablets is a problem. There is a critical lack of recognition that apps are being used on a tablet, leading to scaling, crashes, and crashes.
There is also the question of the availability of the application. If your work is done mainly through the G Suite, you will be fine, but Android is still not widely compatible with many essential applications in different fields.
It works in a pinch to write on the go or with a good Lenovo pen, but it works better as a media player than Workhorse.
The big win for the tablet, however, is the battery life.
On Wi-Fi (LTE option available), we were able to extend the connected screen for more than 10 hours in several days of use.
It is an excellent display and is complemented by fast charging capability and strong waiting times.
The P11 Pro is a welcome companion for those who like to enjoy Netflix’s entire season.
Performance is usually adequate. The Tab P11 Pro is far from many competing models available from Samsung, offering a weaker processor, the Snapdragon 730G, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
It has enough power to perform basic functions and interface without problems, but there is a significant delay when trying to do more intensive work like games. This may be due to the higher resolution screens.
The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is a big challenge for names like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus.
It offers sophisticated performance, strong speakers and premium design at a price that exceeds the competition.
However, this is not meant to be a productivity machine – Android for tablets, after 8 years of existence, is still not ready for prime time.
If you’re looking for a tablet to replace a mini-TV with better media features, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is one of the best options for the price. Corporate users prefer laptops.
