With its 11.5-inch display, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is one of the largest Android tablets, and as an all-rounder, it aims to cater optimally for every usage scenario ranging from multimedia to home office. As our review shows, however, users will still have to put up with some compromises.

Lenovo officially charges around 600 Euros (~$722) for the base configuration of its 11.5-inch all-rounder tablet, the Tab P11 Pro, which targets rivals like the Apple iPad Pro 11 (2020) or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 with its aluminum chassis, four Dolby Atmos speakers, and a Dolby Vision-compatible OLED panel.

For 600 Euros (~$722), you can get the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro with 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, and a Wi-Fi 5 module. Alternatively, the 11.5-incher is also available with an LTE module; this version costs 649 Euros (~$781) in Lenovo's online store at the time of testing.

Starting at around 700 Euros (~$843) with keyboard and stylus

Two other bundles are particularly exciting, because the Wi-Fi and LTE versions are also available in a bundle with the otherwise optional keyboard and the Lenovo Precision Pen 2 stylus, which also normally comes at an additional cost. In these cases, the respective prices are 699 Euros (~$842) and 749 Euros (~$902).

Given the ambitious purchase price, users might expect quite a bit. However, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro only fulfills these expectations to a certain extent. For example, it only comes with Android 10 instead of 11, there's no 5G support, and it doesn't have an IP rating - features that should normally be included in tablets in this price range.

No problems with multimedia, games, or Netflix

When it comes to multimedia, YouTube, and Netflix, however, we definitely approve. The 2560x1600 pixel OLED display presents content in vibrant colors, and the audio delivered by the Dolby speakers is also appropriate, although it does lack a bit of bass.

Lenovo's tablet also runs games smoothly, but it doesn't have all that much performance headroom to be able to handle upcoming games, since it's only equipped with the Snapdragon 730 mid-range SoC.

Overall, the Tab P11 Pro makes things harder for itself, because tablets like the Tab P11, an in-house competitor, can also handle everything that has to do with multimedia and the like, but they are cheaper - the Tab P11 is available for less than 300 Euros (~$361).

Special desktop mode when the keyboard is attached

Nevertheless, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro still has one trump card: You can turn the tablet into a laptop replacement with the optional docking keyboard and stylus. Accordingly, a special feature called Productivity Mode is available; this is a special desktop interface that is only visible when the keyboard is plugged in. Apps are then launched in windows that can be moved and resized as desired. A kind of taskbar, to which you can pin frequently used apps, is also included here.

My fascination for computers started with the C64. Since then, I’ve put everything that comes my way in terms of hardware through its paces. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and the first PC with an 8088 CPU, my list of projects has grown increasingly longer. For more than 20 years now I have also turned my hobby into my profession and have been active in the mobile section of Notebookcheck since 2021. Before that, I worked as a hardware editor for IDG Media (tecChannel.de) and VNU Business Publications (PC professional), among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
