Reviews for the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro

89.1% Lenovo Tab P12 Pro Review: 5G Tablet Laptop Alternative with large 120 Hz Display | Notebookcheck
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is a premium tablet with a focus on productivity. It transforms into a 12.6-inch laptop alternative with both stylus and multi-display support thanks to its keyboard dock and kickstand.

Source: Tech Advisor English
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is a very well balanced high-end Android tablet that’s perfect for media consumption, courtesy of a colour-rich 12.6in AMOLED display and four great sounding speakers. Its design is suitably premium, its software suitably clean and focused, and I’m a fan of the bundled Precision Pen stylus. However, its performance – whilst decent – isn’t quite what you might expect from a genuine Pro tablet and the same is true of battery life. To that end, its price tag feels ever so slightly steep. If you can find it for a hefty discount, however, then it’s a genuinely viable alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 range – especially if you intend to watch a lot of video content.

The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is good, but it’s not great – especially in the cut-throat Android tablet market. This fairly powerful tablet has a high-res screen and a stylus, which comes in handy for certain tasks; but it misses out on a few killer features that it could really use, both on the software and hardware fronts.

80% Lenovo Tab P12 Pro review: a versatile 12.6-inch Android tablet
Source: T3 English
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is a versatile, premium tablet that will be great for working on during the day and chilling out with in the evening - that’s partly due to the big 12.6-inch AMOLED screen, and partly down to its performance because it will be able to cope with anything you could throw at it. The huge battery means that this will last if you need to use it when you’re out and about, or to entertain you during long journeys. Plus, it will charge back up again very quickly. To play devil's advocate, this tablet isn't completely perfect because the camera system leaves a lot to be desired and if you plan to use it for tablet art or sketching then the stylus might not be precise enough, but those points won’t be dealbreakers for most people. You do get plenty of bang for your buck because while the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is expensive, it's not as expensive as other tablets with similar screen sizes. I think it's well worth considering!

80% Lenovo Tab P12 Pro review: The flagship Android tablet shoots for the Galaxy
Source: Zdnet.com English
As a standalone tablet, the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is priced competitively and makes for a stellar entertainment device. The large 12.6-inch display is great, and I appreciate Lenovo for including the Precision Pen 3 for those who need it. Until the official version of Android 12L arrives, I remain conservative in claiming that the Tab P12 Pro is the best of its breed. Minor inconveniences, like gesture bugs and input lag, disrupt what is a rather polished tablet, hardware-wise.

80% Lenovo Tab P12 Pro Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is a high-end Android tablet that makes a concession or two in order to provide a great 12-inch display at a much lower cost than either Samsung or Apple. And that 120Hz OLED is a great display. Lenovo uses a Snapdragon 870, a mid-range chipset based on the top-end Qualcomm mobile CPU from 2020. It’s a lot less powerful than the Apple M1 of the iPad Pro or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 tablets. But heat generation is low, and the tablet still handles almost all games well. You might want to consider this power drop more carefully if, for example, you’re into CPU/GPU-busting retro games emulation. Like Samsung, Lenovo puts significant effort into making the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro a feasible laptop replacement. And the included Precision Pen 3 stylus is very good – although Apple’s tablets still have the edge for creativity apps.

Lenovo Tab P12 Pro review: Close to the whole package
Source: Android Authority English
Lenovo mostly hit the mark with the Tab P12 Pro. The tablet matches the quality, performance, and pricing of its main rivals and also offers a few things they don’t. The Tab P12 Pro is a solid piece of hardware that’s well made, with a gorgeous display for consuming content or getting some work done. It pushes out plenty of speed and cranks out class-leading battery life. Biometrics ensure that the tablet is always secured and extras like JBL-tuned speakers and expandable storage give it a leg up. The tablet could have a better upgrade commitment from Lenovo. Two OS updates would be better than one. Moreover, the haptics are rather rough and the cameras could be better. Lenovo comes close to delivering the whole package here. The included stylus helps offset the P12 Pro’s price when compared to some competing tablets, and the well-rounded software suite and optional keyboard accessory make the tablet an appealing option as a potential productivity machine.

Model:

Android tablets are always trying to catch up to the iPad, which consistently seems to outperform on everything from productivity to entertainment. This is evident from Google scrapping the Pixel Slate, to Samsung’s various attempts at swaying us with amazing OLEDs, there simply has not been a really solid tablet for those who want to dive a bit deeper into the Android experience. However, Lenovo is trying its best to provide just that with the Tab P12 Pro. While it is undeniable that the P12 does have some notable downfalls such as the messy productivity mode, this device does manage to represent a good enough attempt at an Android tablet that is not a chore to use. As far as its design is concerned, the first noticeable thing about the design of the Lenovo P12 Pro is that, for a powerful tablet, it is quite thin. In fact, at only 5.6 mm, it is one of the thinnest tablets available right now in the market. In addition, at only 1.24 pounds, this tablet is not too heavy either, which is a good thing for portability. Surprisingly though, the thin body does not sacrifice its sturdy feel as it does take quite a bit of effort to snap it in half. Furthermore, the build is solid enough for a moderate drop on a carpeted floor.

In terms of its display, P12 Pro looks quite impressive. The 12.6-inch 2K AMOLED screen and the 120 Hz display refresh rate combination definitely caters for a sharp, smooth visual experience, particularly when it comes to scrolling through streaming services like Netflix or Hulu. It is worth noting that the Lenovo Precision Pen 3 is included with the device which is far from a given for tablets, and a 2-in-1 keyboard case is available for purchase separately. Overall, the pen does feel a bit cheap as compared to Samsung’s S Pen, for example, but it does magnetically attach to the back of the device, and fits comfortably in the small pocket on the keyboard case with no need to charge. It is worth mentioning that the cameras on the device are not too shabby either. As for the front-facing camera, it comes with 8MP fixed focus and TOF Sensor, while the two rear-facing cameras offer a 13MP autofocus and 5MP wide-angle. The images are surprisingly clear for a tablet, providing smartphone quality images, and the portrait mode is not too messy around the edges either, all thanks to the Google software. Furthermore, the front-facing camera is completely hidden even with the slim bezels, so there is no notch to be found on this device. In a nutshell, it is a great tablet to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

SD 870: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in mid 2020 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC (improved N7P). Integrates one Prime Core based on a ARM Cortex-A77 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A77 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.60":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


84.96%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
