Very, very impressive specs but still quite affordable

The Xiaomi Mi Pad succeeds at being the first interesting Android tablet to come along in a while now, mostly because of it’s combination of high-end specs and a very affordable price-tag. While Android on tablets isn’t as pleasant an experience as iOS on a new iPad, Xiaomi’s UI is nice enough, though most Android apps are still not really optimised for this resolution and aspect ratio...

The Xiaomi Mi Pad succeeds at being the first interesting Android tablet to come along in a while now, mostly because of it’s combination of high-end specs and a very affordable price-tag. While Android on tablets isn’t as pleasant an experience as iOS on a new iPad, Xiaomi’s UI is nice enough, though most Android apps are still not really optimised for this resolution and aspect ratio.

But while that would make it hard to justify buying a really expensive Android tablet, like the Xperia Z4 tablet or the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, the Xiaomi Mi Pad is priced so affordably that it is just plain and simple, incredibly value for money. Infact the only thing that boasts similar specs, is the Google Nexus 9 which is more than double the price (Eeesh), and less portable.

At the end of the day, if you’re looking to pick up a new Android tablet, the Xiaomi Mi Pad is where the party’s at. Definitely recommended. Heck, I don’t even need an Android tablet and I’m tempted to get one.

The Mi Pad has set a new benchmark when it comes to raw performance. The screen resolution is the best available in the budget segment. But besides these two massive plus points, the Mi Pad is essentially a budget segment tablet. So, if you are in the market and need a tablet to consume content or for entertainment purposes, the Mi Pad is the right choice.

Unexpected Competition for the iPad mini

from NDTV

Once again, Xiaomi has delivered a product that isn't perfect, but offers absolutely terrific value for money. In doing so, the company has also once again displaced every competitor around it. One of the biggest problems with this tablet is that no 3G/LTE version is available, which for many people will be a dealbreaker. Even for a few thousand rupees more, a variant with cellular data would be very welcome in our market...

Once again, Xiaomi has delivered a product that isn't perfect, but offers absolutely terrific value for money. In doing so, the company has also once again displaced every competitor around it. One of the biggest problems with this tablet is that no 3G/LTE version is available, which for many people will be a dealbreaker. Even for a few thousand rupees more, a variant with cellular data would be very welcome in our market.

For what it is, the Xiaomi Mi Pad is still a fantastic bargain. It works well as a portable entertainment unit and it's unobtrusive enough that you could just toss it in a bag and keep it with you wherever you go. It works well for reading, watching movies, playing games, and browsing the Web.

It might not be as polished as the iPad mini 2, but it does come in at slightly more than half its price (and offers expandable storage). If you really want an iPad then you'll still buy an iPad, but for many people there is now a viable way to save a lot of money.

Performs speedily and good battery life

from Techgoondu

The Mi Pad is a power user’s dream. It performs speedily, offers good battery life and plenty of room for tweaks. It may have a plasticky build and is a little heavier than the iPad Mini, but these are small concessions for a device that costs only S$299.

What was disappointing, however, was Xiaomi’s unwillingness to step out of the shadow of Apple and into the limelight as a fast-rising giant...

What was disappointing, however, was Xiaomi’s unwillingness to step out of the shadow of Apple and into the limelight as a fast-rising giant.

Thankfully, Xiaomi’s newer crop of devices showed it is capable of churning out devices that are not complete carbon copies of its competitors. This is a respectable development that I hope will continue so as to increase Xiaomi’s appeal and help the company steer clear of crippling lawsuits.

On paper, the MiPad is incredibly powerful and very well specced for its price. In reality, it's a compact Android tablet doing a reasonable impersonation of Apple's similarly-sized slate. It has several appealing qualities, including a good screen with formidable resolution and the most powerful processor currently available. The interface has been revamped, but it consequently suffers a few teething issues. When all said and done, the MiPad offers excellent value for money.
