Lenovo Tab P12 Pro review

A fast and snappy tablet, with an excellent colorful screen for movies, but poor camera quality, a bad pen experience, and an awkward size let it down.

Digital Camera World Verdict

Overall, the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is a well-rounded device that offers a colorful and sharp display, quick performance, and decent battery life in normal use. The Dolby Atmos tuned speakers provide loud booming sound. The stylus is comfortable and accurate to use, but the experience is subpar, with palm rejection almost non-existent. And while fantastic for movies, the tablet is let down by its 16:10 ratio which makes it unwieldy to hand-hold and use comfortably, with productivity apps and content feeling more at home on shorter screens.

Whether you are looking for the best tablet for photo editing or the best drawing tablet, the journey usually starts with the question, Android or iPadOS? In the early days, there used to be more of a straightforward answer, with Apple’s tablets wiping the board against their Android rivals save for a Samsung flagship like the Galaxy S8 Tab S8 Ultra. This explains why the Cupertino giant’s iPad range makes up 51.21% of all tablets sold, despite its options erring on the expensive side. 

Google has done considerable work to its AndroidOS to not only make it more visually appealing than ever before with Android 13's 'Material You' theming, but it has also invested in making the operating system that works for phones better to use on tablets. Now, there are now far more compelling options for the best Android tablet.
