At the end of last year and the beginning of this year, Lenovo released two tablets with similar dimensions and names on the market but drastically different prices. Let us in this guide today what you can achieve with these two metal Duos from Lenovo.
LENOVO TAB P11 PRO KEY SPECS
Older, and at the same time more expensive, of the two tablets is the P11 Pro model, announced last year, with market availability since December. It is an 11.5-inch tablet equipped with an OLED screen with a resolution of 2,560×1,600 points, a page ratio of 16:10. The device is not delivered independently on the domestic market but in combination with a rich set of accessories – a protective cover on the back, which also doubles as a stand, keyboard, and active pen. This set of plugins is accompanied by a special Desktop interface mode, which adapts the tablet interface to the control with the mouse cursor, the touchpad, and packs the applications into windows. The packaging also contains a high-quality USB-C cable and a 20-watt adapter that ensures fast battery charging.
In general, Android 10 on this tablet is very “clean,” without significant interventions, Lenovo. Many Google apps are also used, such as the Photos app, for example, to view recorded photos and videos. Parents will be particularly interested in support for Google’s Kids Space app, which customizes the tablet interface and available content for children.
The active pen that arrives with the device is made of aluminum and has excellently affected dimensions. It has two physical buttons, a removable plastic tip with 4,096 degrees of sensitivity, and is charged via a USB-C connector hidden behind a rubber stopper at the top.
On the back, in one of the corners, there is a somewhat protruding dome with two cameras – a standard of 13 MP and a wide-angle of 5 MP. On the front of the Tab, there is an 8 MP selfie camera with IR shooting capability and biometric identification. The device is charged using a USB-C port (which is USB-C 3.2 Gen2, so it also supports the connection of hubs and monitors) and has a combined slot to insert a nano-SIM card that drives the LTE modem and microSD to expand memory.
On the shorter pages of tablets, there are speakers, a total of four pieces. They are an excellent pair of the 2,560×1,600-point OLED screen, a maximum brightness of 500 nits, with HDR10 support.
The tablet’s hardware base consists of Qualcomm’s 8-nanometer SoC Snapdragon 730G, composed of two 2.2-gigahertz Kryo 470 Gold cores, six 1.8-gigahertz Kryo 470 Silver cores, and Adreno 618 graphics. There is also 6 GB of working memory and 128 GB of flash. Given the SoC used, the performance of the tablets is mediocre. A good part of the interior is occupied by a battery of 8,400 mAh, which provides the device with up to 15 hours of autonomy, that is, just over 10 hours in our test.
And finally, a cold shower – the price. For the P11 Pro, it is necessary to allocate almost 103,283KES. Lenovo’s tablet has only two advantages – a cleaner operating system and comes with a keyboard (the S7 comes with an active pen).
LENOVO TAB P11 KEY SPECS
A much cheaper Tab P11, a very similar-sized (11″) device, and equally excellent build quality, comes to the rescue. The tablet’s back is not entirely metallic, but a third is upholstered in a rubbery texture to ensure a better grip when the tablet is held in hand. That’s pretty important if you’re going to put Tab P11 in your child’s hands. On the back, there is one bulging camera lens, inside which there is a 13-megapixel sensor. From the front, located on the broader page of the device, we have an 8 MP camera. Interestingly, the software offers the ability to authenticate to a tablet with a front-facing camera, but recognition takes longer than on the P11 Pro and less accurate. This device does not have an LTE modem, but You can expand the internal memory of 128 GB with a microSD card.
With this tablet, The USB-C connector on the laptop has weaker capabilities than on a more robust model – only the USB 2.0 standard is supported, so there is no option to connect external screens or USB-C hubs.
The tablet’s hardware core consists of Qualcomm’s 11-nanometer SoC Snapdragon 662 and 4 GB of working memory. The chip, as mentioned above, has four 2.3-gigahertz cores, 260 Gold, four 1.8-gigahertz Kryo 260 Silver, and Adreno 610 GPU. The battery has a capacity of 7,500 mAh, which ensures a very similar autonomy time to the P11 Pro.
Considering the price of about 43,054KES, tab P11 is much more competitively positioned on the market because it offers better specifications.
