Lenovo Tab P11: The cheapest 11-inch tablet at the moment scores points with good features and versatility
With a starting price of 250 Euros (~$298), the Lenovo Tab P11 is currently one of the cheapest Android tablets with an 11-inch display size. Nevertheless, it scores points in our test with its comprehensive features and only demands a few compromises from buyers.
If you look for an affordable Android tablet that is as up-to-date as possible in price comparison websites, the Lenovo Tab P11 is currently very high on the list of hits in the 11-inch class. The lowest-capacity variant with 4 GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64 GB of UFS 2.1 storage starts at about 250 Euros (~$298). You have to invest around 300 Euros (~$357) for the 4/128 GB version. The Lenovo tablet costs practically the same in the largest-capacity configuration with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
The low entry price inevitably raises the question of trade-offs. Naturally, there are some, but the base configuration is pretty solid because Lenovo promotes the Tab P11 as a multimedia and family-friendly tablet - so versatility is a must. The hardware is also aimed precisely at this.
Four Dolby Atmos speakers, a special moder for kids, long battery life
The Tab P11 is powered by the Snapdragon 662, an octa-core SoC belonging to the lower mid-range; the tablet displays content on a 2000x1200 pixel IPS panel and has four Dolby Atmos certified speakers on board. The tablet can optionally be extended with a docking keyboard (around 100 Euros (~$119)), and you can also get a digital input pen in the form of the Lenovo Precision Pen 2 (around 60 Euros (~$71)). For family use, the Tab P11 comes with account management as well as a special children's mode that allows parents to set usage time, among other things.
Lenovo's 11-inch device also scores plus points for its long battery runtimes in the test - it should actually always have enough power for a full day of intensive use. However, you should not expect too much from the cameras, since the 13 MP main camera in particular is only good for taking snapshots at best. The GPS capabilities of the Tab P11 aren't very good, either - the tablet prefers to be used indoors.

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.
