The Lenovo Tablet Yoga Tab 11 reveals light and shadow in the test

The Yoga Tab 11 is an interesting multimedia tablet thanks to its practical stand and long battery life. Also because we liked the two built-in speakers in the Lenovo tablet for this price range. The recorded pink noise curve revealed a relatively linear course in the test and even bass reproduction was minimally perceptible. 

The striking design of Lenovo's Yoga Tab series, including the stand, is undoubtedly a matter of taste. As a result, we were able to hold the mid-range tablet extremely well with one hand in everyday testing. On the other hand, Lenovo installed the hinges for the very practical stand, which was often used in our everyday use.

However, we also have a few points of criticism that the mid-range competition sometimes does significantly better. The 11-inch 60 Hz IPS TDDI display has a 2K resolution, but the maximum brightness we measured is less than 400 cd / m². That makes a Huawei MatePad 11 or Galaxy Tab S7 much better - especially since both can have a display with 120 Hz. In addition, the Yoga Tab 11 uses PWM for brightness control despite LC technology.

However, we see the greatest need to catch up in system speed. The Yoga Tab 11 is based on the MediaTek Helio G90T, an SoC manufactured in a 12 nm process. In conjunction with the 8 GB RAM of our test version, the processor ensures a maximum of solid system performance. A lot of hangs have to be tolerated in everyday life, animations often do not work smoothly and running apps were terminated with restarts during the test period. When using multitasking, calling up the keyboard often takes several seconds. Even the very slow WiFi paired with the now somewhat outdated UFS 2.1 storage does not exactly set speed records for loading and opening apps and games.
