The Lenovo Tab P11 G2 has improved but has some trouble determining its location
With its metal case and the rubberized plastic bar in slightly contrasting color in the area on top which is supposed to ensure a better reception, the Lenovo Tab P11 G2 looks quite elegant. It also offers good workmanship, and the slightly aged Gorilla Glass 3 should protect the display from damage. What we like less, on the other hand, is the creaking sound produced when trying to warp the case.
We test the WLAN version (with the manufacturer label TB350FU), which even includes the modern WiFi 6, allowing it to use the less occupied 6-Ghz band. However, since there is only MIMO 1x1, the maximum speed cannot be used, and the transfer rates level out only slightly above those of WiFi 5 devices.
Lenovo even provides its tablet with a locating module, although you shouldn't rely on that too much: Some apps don't recognize it at all, and others can only determine the position when the tablet is stationary. When moving the tablet, this doesn't work at all.
What we like better are the accessories. Even though you have to purchase them separately, they have a high quality and expand the functionality of the tablet significantly. For example, there is an input pen or a keyboard cover that together with a special Productivity mode allows you to use the tablet as a laptop replacement with Android.
The SoC of the Lenovo Tab P11 2022 is significantly faster than that of the predecessor, and most other midrange tablets are also unable to keep up. The storage is also fast, and operation appears very smooth with the 120-Hz display.
On the other hand, the tablet is less suited for gamers, since many games limit the frame rate to 30 fps and don't offer any higher detail settings. In order to attract some real gamers, Lenovo would still have to provide some optimizations.
