Lenovo tablet p11 review

 the all new

lenovo p11 android tablet now this is

not to be confused with the lenovo p11

pro which is a more expensive tablet.

albeit it's actually a really decent

tablet but

The p11 it's a step down from

the pro but the price does reflect that

coming in at 229$.

This could turn out to be one of the

best budget android tablets of 2021.

So what we have here is an 8 core

snapdragon processor an 11 inch

ips 2k screen quad speakers 4 gigabytes

of ram 64 gigabytes of internal storage

and it's packed inside of this really

sleek little design.  along with the p11 tablet you are

also going to get a 20 watt charger and usb

type-c cable and i believe that's about

it inside of this box here since this is

the non-pro version we don't have an

amoled display but it's a really nice

looking 2k

ips around back here we got this dual

tone design.

we do have a volume rocker and a power button.

like i mentioned this has quad speakers

built in two on each end and it supports

dolby atmos and this thing will support

up to a one terabyte micro sd

card but we only have 64 gigabytes of

internal storage

now there is rumor that they're going to

be releasing a 128 gigabyte version

that's obviously going to bring the

storage up but it also brings the ram up

from four to six and i have not seen

that online i wasn't able to pick one up

but when it comes to the specs of the

model i have here for that cpu we have

the snapdragon 662 the gpu is the

arduino 610

four gigabytes of lp ddr4 x ram 64

gigabytes of internal storage plus a

microsd

card slot good up to one terabyte ac

wi-fi bluetooth 5.1

an 11 inch 2k ips display a 7500

milliampere battery and they're

claiming up to 12 hours of video

playback from this

quad speakers with dolby atmos and it's

running android 10 right out of the box

all right so here it is when it comes to

ui performance the snapdragon cpu

they're using in here can definitely

handle android 10. now this did come

with some bloat and this is something i

really hate seeing but

there's a couple microsoft apps which

can be deleted there's a my lenovo

and the dolby atmos those ones can be

disabled but i would definitely leave

that dolby atmos going

also has the kids corner built in so if

you want to set this up for a kid you

can kind of disable different apps and

things like that

since we're running a legitimate version

of android we do have full access to

google play

and overall it's been a really enjoyable

experience with that four gigs of ram i

haven't noticed any lag at all with the

ui here.

lenovo claims up to 12 hours of battery

life with video playback and i'm sure

that's probably at the lowest brightness

but uh with that 7 500 milliamp hour

battery you should get some really good

play time out of this thing.

Speaking of video playback through

netflix we can get full hd this only

supports widevine level one even though

we have that 2k

screen and even when it comes to youtube

we can only go up to 1080p 60.

i was really hoping we could get 2k out

of this maybe down the road they'll

throw an update out that allows

it but at 1080p still looks great on the

screen and it'll play

perfectly fine gotta say the speakers

that they use in this thing sound

absolutely amazing we have that quad

speaker array

and it does get way too loud and by too

loud i don't mean it distorts or

anything like that

at full volume it does sound great but

it's just overpoweringly loud for a

tablet. I also ran some benchmarks first up we  have 3dmark wildlife this is a vulcan

benchmark and it's scored 273 not great

and the same thing kind of goes for

geekbench 5 single core 298

multi 1248 i thought i'd see much higher

scores on both of these here

but when i moved over to slingshot and

antutu it started to look a lot better

for slingshot this is an opengl test

scored a 1073 n22 came in

over 200000 which is great for a budget

tablet .Now when you're talking about

high-end phones this isn't a great score

but when it comes to these budget

tablets this is pretty decent.minecraft 12 chunks have fancy graphics on this tablet

and it performs great i've always had

really good luck in these snapdragon

chips when it comes to minecraft

so this will be fully playable on this

tablet.

asphalt 9 is another one that's going to

perform really well on this tablet i

didn't go in and change any of the

settings there are a few graphical

settings that we can actually go in and

change but i'm still using that xbox

controller and i'm getting great performance.

i also went through and tested call of

duty mobile it does perform well

i'm at medium settings with a frame rate

at high not bad at all but this is a

very well optimized game they've done a

great job getting this to run on lower

end chip.  Genshin impact this is just a harder one to run

on lower end chips and we are struggling

here with the snapdragon 662

unfortunately even at the lowest

settings at 30 fps.

emulation testing first up we have

dreamcast using the redream emulator

this is sonic adventure 2 and we're

upscaled to 1280x960 getting great

performance here it is running at full

speed

next on the list n64 using move pin 64

plus

fz i was also able to upscale this to

600x800 and when it comes to n64 on this

chipset i've tested it in the past it

works great

moving up a bit to psp using ppsspp

here we have tekken dark resurrection

upscale to 3x using the vulcan back in

no frame skip no hacks and it's running

at 60.

but this is an easier game to emulate so

let's check out how chains of olympus

performs

with this one i'm still using that

vulcan back in but i did have to take it

down to 1x

i'm actually really surprised to see

this running at 60 every once in a while

you'll see it dip

but it's decent performance for what we

have here

moving over to some ds emulation using

the standalone version of drastic from

the google play store

if you want to play ds games on your

android device even if it's a lower end

definitely check out drastic because

there's a good chance it's going to run

these games

and the final emulation test i ran was

gamecube using the dolphin emulator

the snapdragon 662 in this tablet just

isn't cut out for gamecube emulation now

there are a couple games that do run at

full speed like wind waker

and beautiful joe but don't go out and

buy this specifically for dolphin

next up we have some g-force now running

cyberpunk 2077 this is streaming from

their servers i'm using that xbox

controller and keep in mind i'm

connected to my five gigahertz network

because we do have ac wi-fi built-in so

game streaming is definitely possible on

this tablet.

I tested game streaming with

xcloud and GeForce nowand it's performance decent.

now as long as you have a decent

internet connection

this does have ac wi-fi built in you

should get pretty good performance.

overall i think lenovo did a pretty

great job .

Every single day we have a better screen

and a better cpu but given the price of

this thing at 229$ i think it's a great

budget option it would have been nice to

see 1440 playback in

netflix and youtube and like i said

hopefully they do update the software so

we can get a higher widevine level here

to get that out of it

because after all we're really not

taking advantage of this 2k screen

we've got great battery life an awesome

sound system and decent performance keep

in mind this is the snapdragon 662

it's not a top of the line chip at all

these are in mid-range phones but it's

definitely enough to get you by with

media consumption

tons of different native android apps

and games are going to run at full speed

on this thing and as you saw we do get

some pretty decent emulation performance

out of this machine also

so yeah if you're looking for a budget

tablet and you know what you're getting

into i do think this would be worth 229$

given the prices of tablets right now

but if you're looking for the top of the

line stuff i would go with the samsung

galaxy s6 you can pick up a refurbished

one for like 360 on ebay

or if you want to go the most powerful

tablet on the market is the samsung

galaxy s7

and that thing is absolutely amazing but

you could basically buy two of these for

the price of that one.
