Lenovo Tab P11 Pro Review: Good Hardware, Poor Software


Android tablets are a uncommon breed. Good Android tablets are even rarer.

Samsung has the high-end Android pill market cornered with its Galaxy Tab S7+ and S7, and on the different finish of the market are the ultra-cheap, underpowered Amazon Fire tablets. In between is a spot, and that’s what Lenovo is hoping to fill. 

The Lenovo P11 Tab Pro is the corporate’s newest slate, and it is leaps and bounds past a Fire pill, but it surely would not have fairly the ability of Samsung’s S7 vary. What it does have is a powerful display and a way more budget-friendly price ticket that makes it nice for watching films on the go. That’s the first use case right here, as a result of Android on a pill is not good for a lot else.

The Right Hardware

The display is without doubt one of the highlights of the Tab P11 Pro. It’s an 11.5-inch 2K OLED (2,560 x 1,600 pixels) that is each bit as good and sharp as what’s in my iPad Pro. It’s received deep, wealthy blacks and loads of brightness, making the P11 a good way to observe films. The JBL audio system are equally spectacular, with good bass output—higher than many laptops I’ve examined recently.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a headphone jack, solely a single USB-C port and a Micro SD card slot. Lenovo does throw in a USB-C-to-headphone adapter, however if you wish to cost your pill whereas listening to headphones, you may must go the wi-fi route.

There are just a few completely different fashions. The commonplace seems to be extra like an iPad, however the folio mannequin I examined features a mushy material again with a kickstand and a removable keyboard like Lenovo’s Chromebook Duet. The kickstand design means it’s kind of awkward and wobbly in your lap, but it surely’s tremendous if you apply it to a flat floor. Strip away the case and the P11 Pro is surprisingly gentle, weighing in at simply over a pound.

The keyboard is cramped however usable. The trackpad, however, is the one {hardware} weak spot. The button vary could be very small and never particularly responsive. It’s not a deal breaker, but it surely positively detracts from the usefulness of the trackpad.
