Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro Features
- Android 11 System
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 870
- 13-inch IPS 2k Screen
- 8GB RAM And 128 GB/256 ROM
- 10200mAh Battery

Design And Build Quality
In terms of design, Yoga Pad Pro looks beautiful and modern, the body here is built of aluminum on aluminum and I feel high quality not cheap. The frame, it’s thin and made also of aluminum with a thickness of 8.3mm, while the full dimensions of the tablet are 248.1*157.9mm and weigh 474g is lightweight compared to other tablets, despite its thinness and lightweight, it’s still very strong, its does not contain have any kind of protection but is durable, withstands shocks and rough use but don’t get excited about too much, okay.
On the front, it has a large 10.4-inch screen and an 8.0MP front camera in the middle of the top for taking selfies and video chats, as we mentioned, is a clean metal body without a main camera, There is only an attached stainless steel built-in kickstand that can rotate 180 degrees from the back of the device, you can stand it up or hang it from a wall.
On the right side, there is the power button, volume buttons, type-C charging port, microphone, and on the left side has a Micro-HDM port and another microphone. the last has two speakers on the bottom and top.
If you notice the 3.5mm audio jack is missing, that means either you have to use wireless headphones or a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter.
Through all this, it is clear that there is no fingerprint reader, which is what bothers me the most here because for me and for many users it makes unlocking the screen a lot easier. Fortunately, Yoga Pad Pro supports face unlock, which is not as secure as a fingerprint, or even effective in all circumstances, but it does exist.
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro – Display Screen
The Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro has a 13 inch 2K IPS screen, and the best thing is that it is with a high resolution of 1350 x 2160 and 400 nits peak brightness while the panel’s refresh rate is capped at 60Hz, it supports HDR10, Dolby Vision and covers 100% of the sRGB spectrum. So you can enjoy any content on the tablet with good color accuracy and brightness enough, in addition to a 2.5D curved edge touch panel with improved response accuracy and that will not disappoint you. The bezels around the screen are very thin to deliver a better experience. also can use the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro as an external display for peripherals such as notebooks and smartphones via the included micro-HDMI port
This type of screen is the best you can get on a mid-range tablet and provides good color reproduction with no picture distortion and blue light protection for comfortable reading. Yes, this screen is not better than an AMOLED screen, but it remains better than an LCD screen and is suitable for this price range.
And the brightness can be adjusted automatically thanks to the built-in lighting sensor that provides better clarity to see the content you find on high-performance tablets, and it has not been announced whether the touchpad is protected by a layer of scratch and shock resistance Corning Gorilla Glass. Also, you can fine-tune the white balance from the display settings to provide clear-looking images with lots of subtle detail and good contrast that you won’t face any problems when your tablet is exposed to direct sunlight.
The Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro tablet runs on the Android 11 with AI improvement, new gesture navigation controls, Dark Theme, support for full-screen gestures and contains most of the features that come with the system, the most important of which is the presence of all Google services, making the tablet experience smoother and more personalized.
As I always say, the stock Android system is best for cheap devices, with a simple and smooth launcher for better performance, especially it’s without pre-installed apps or games, I really hate this because of the large number of ads, but here it is different.
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro – Performance
If we talk about performance, Yoga Pad Pro offers great performance in most of its basic and entertainment uses such as browsing the web, watching videos on YouTube, using social media applications, and reading e-books, as everything worked efficiently and without facing any problems with stopping applications or high degrees.
Most of the applications ran very quickly and thanks to the 256GB UFS 3.0 storage capacity and it’s the biggest I’ve seen in a mid-cost Chinese tablet, it would be suitable for installing any application you need, with the ability to expand via a Micro SD card to 128GB. In short, the capacity it offers is very good and you do not have to think about choosing, and for this price, it’s a good deal.
And for multitasking, browsing between applications was smooth because it is equipped with an 8GB RAM LPDDR5 which is more than enough for most of the tasks that you can do with a tablet such as keeping many applications or large games running in the background. In Short, this tablet will give you a very positive experience.
CPU Performance In Games
Well, It is time to expose the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro tablet to some tasks that need more effort and there is nothing better than playing games with high settings, the conditions here differ according to the application, game, and because the processor used here is Snapdragon 870 Octa-Core up to 3.2GHz processor with 7mm architecture was one of the most powerful processors used in high-end smartphone and tablet that Qualcomm announced in mid-2021, everything was smooth even in high-graphics games like PUBG or COD Mobile and can you play on ultra settings, You will enjoy smooth gameplay and high frame rate.
This processor is based on three ARM Cortex-A77 cores, which can reach up to 2.42 GHz, these are complemented by four power-saving ARM Cortex-A55 cores that clock up to a maximum of 1.8 GHz and has Adreno 506 GPU which is an integrated mid-range graphics card and used in smartphones like (Black Shark 4, Xiaomi Poco F3, Xiaomi Redmi K40).
In numbers, Yoga Pad Pro achieved about 680,000 on the Antutu benchmark, and this tells you about the hardware performance of this tablet. The Play games on this tablet are one of the main reasons for purchasing the Yoga Pad Pro. Generally, the performance is more than impressive and maybe the best in this category.
To play the content on YouTube, was very smooth. You can play videos at a maximum of 1080p at 60 FPS without any problems or lag, and up to 2K at best with some slight stutter.
Unfortunately, the Yoga Pad Pro tablet does not have Widevine DRM Level 1, so paid services like Netflix and Amazon Prime cannot be viewed in 4K, and this level maybe not be found on all Chinese tablets without exaggeration. However, you can still enjoy Netflix and all other streaming services in 480p resolution.
The sound on the Yoga Pad Pro is not one of its strengths, however, the new built-in speakers with a high-quality sound system feature four speakers signed by JBL with up to 9W (which supports Dolby Atmos), two on the top and two at the bottom, its good for playing games and watching movies in high quality.
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro – Camera
So far, the overall rating of the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro tablet is more than great, especially when we are talking about a medium-cost tablet, The camera, you can say it’s good, and a big difference from other tablets, the front contains a dual camera 8.0MP sensor and TOF 3D with 1080p video recording for video calls or taking selfies, although I was not disappointed because of its high quality with some noise while recording from the microphone, but its stays okay.
Connectivity options for this tablet include a high-speed Wi-Fi 6 network and supports 2.4GHz / 5GHz AC that works well and provides your maximum internet speed, and it includes GPS not the best but it works. Also, has Bluetooth 5.2 and unfortunately, there’s no LTE option for connecting
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro Battery And Charging Time
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro has a built-in 10200mAh Li-Po battery that allows 10-12 hours of continuous use for surfing the Internet, Google, YouTube, and following social media, of course, the time is less when playing games and with moderate use, it will stay with you for a whole day on one charge it mostly takes about 4 hours to fully charge 10200mAh using Type-C with Quick Charge 3.0, and the charging time seems long, but this capacity is not small. However, I can say that the battery was not bad.
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro is considered a mid-range tablet, I think is one of the best mid-range tablets in 2021, with a good processor, abundant memory of 256GB, 8GB RAM, connectivity standards, and a 2k screen, but that does not make it flawless as it lacks a fingerprint reader, slow battery charging, and you cannot watch Netflix in HD resolution, but it gives you powerful performance at this price, so if you are looking for a tablet at this time, you will not get anything better than Yoga Pad Pro in this price range.
