Buying an Android tablet is complex, and most brands currently offer only low-priced or high-priced models. Google doesn’t emphasize tablets when it comes to Android development. This makes it difficult for manufacturers to deliver a high-quality experience (using the app) at the right price. So all Android tablets (budget or premium) have the same problem. The user interface and apps are poorly optimized and waste a lot of screen space. By comparison, Apple’s iPad benefits from the iPad OS, with increased support from third-party app developers.
But what if a smartphone brand wants to launch a more cost-effective tablet than any other product available in the economy segment? That’s Realme and Xiaomi, with the new Realme Pad and Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro. Despite the limitations of common Android tablets, it’s well worth the price, primarily for those looking for a low-priced tablet for media consumption.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro- In terms of design, it feels like the Redmi K40 is enlarged as it is. The back is made of frosted glass and has a smooth texture. The display is as large as 11 inches. However, the bezel is quite narrow, and despite the 11-inch screen size, the main body was as large as the 10-inch tablet a decade ago.
The thickness of the main body is as thin as 6.86 mm, which is a level where the camera stands out a little, as shown in the picture. Dolby Atmos compatible quad speakers are placed on both ends of the short side, and it is also a point that you can enjoy a three-dimensional sound from the top, bottom, left and right when watching movies.
The top model also supports 5G communication. There are two main body colors, white and black, but it seems that 5G compatible models will be offered only in black.

The OS is equipped with the latest Android 11 that supports split-screen and dark mode. Since Google Play is initially installed, there is no complicated setting introduction, and it is easy to use even for Android beginners.
In addition to the dark mode, it is equipped with an eye care mode that turns the screen yellow and cuts blue light. It also has a reading mode with a black-and-white paper-like texture, which can reduce the strain on your eyes even when reading for a long time.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro comes with MIUI 12.5 shell based on Android 11. And contrary to the promises, there is no unique optimization for the huge screen. Perhaps special features will appear in updates. However, even the standard MIUI 12.5 offers many multitasking options – from floating window to split-screen.
The front camers is equipped with an 8MP camera and a CMOS image sensor. It supports 105-degree wide-angle shooting, installing two microphones, also helps noise cancelling during video calls.
The rear camera is also 8MP, and it is a high-resolution camera that can be used enough to shoot small texts. It may be not easy to hold it with one hand with this size, so it is recommended to purchase the case together.
The Mi Pad 5 Pro has 13 MP + 5 MP rear cameras. The front camera, meanwhile, is an 8MP sensor that can also unlock the tablet by identifying the user’s face.
The realme Pad is equipped with a massive battery of 7100mAh, and it is said that 12 hours for watching videos and 65 days for standby time. It also has a kids mode, so you can safely leave your seat even if you want to use it only by children. It is also recommended as a tablet that can be placed in the living room and used by the whole family!
The battery capacity is 8600 mAh; large devices of past years worked with larger batteries. But Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro demonstrates that modern technologies are more energy efficient. Charging is provided at a maximum power of 67 W.
The Realme Pad is a decent first attempt at a tablet in terms of the hardware it provides. Without accessories (and without a keyboard or stylus holder), this is a tablet intended solely for multimedia consumption and simple communication applications, not for serious productivity.
The Realme Pad offers decent performance with a high-quality display and sound that is very impressive for that segment. Daily performance is not an issue, and ultra-wide selfie cameras are perfect for video calls.
The main functions of Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro are video viewing and document editing. But why not try it out in games, especially when you have the powerful Snapdragon 870 processor, 11-inch display and dedicated gaming overclocking ?! You can enjoy your time playing a good game without worrying about glitches and freezes. And to find a good game, you can use the Xiaomi Mi Game Center application, which contains the best and most popular games of different genres.
