Reviews for the Oppo Pad Air

80% Oppo Pad Air review: A promising debut
Source: India Today English
After spending some time using the device, I can say that if you are working from home and looking to buy a decent tablet for work at a budget, the Oppo Pad Air is a good option to consider. The Pad Air offers a good display, great sound quality and a sleek design. While Oppo gets most of it right, there are certain areas for improvement as well. One of the few things that might disappoint you is the absence of a headphone jack. However, if you have Bluetooth earbuds handy, it shouldn’t be much of an issue. Now, most tablets at this price point aren’t really fit for heavy gaming, similar is the case with the Oppo Pad Air. The device just about manages basic games well. Now, if you are looking for a tablet for gaming, you need to have a higher budget as well. Overall, if you are looking to buy a decent Android tablet, you can go for the Oppo Pad Air without putting much thought into it. Notably, the company is selling the keyboard and stylus separately, which means you will need to spend extra on them.

77% Oppo Pad Air Review: Off To A Great Start!
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
This brings me to the end of this review. So, should you buy the Oppo Pad Air? To answer this, let’s look at the competition first. For a thousand bucks more, you can get the Realme Pad with better performance and an LTE option. But there are no tablet-specific software tweaks here. The same drawback was on the Moto Tab G70 that I reviewed earlier. And I expect the same with the newly launched Moto G62 LTE, which otherwise is very similar to the Pad Air. Then we have the Galaxy Tab A8. Samsung’s experience in making tablets and foldables is reflected well here but the specs it offers are not competitive enough for the price. In my opinion, Oppo Pad Air is the middle ground. It is not a perfect tablet, I mean, it is hard to be at this particular price point. However, it has a decent set of specs and complementary software as well. Unless, if you expect hardcore gaming and multi-tasking, which you should not do with a budget tablet, it will fare you well, especially for school work and multimedia.

OPPO Pad Air review: Affordable Android tablet good for casual everyday use
Source: Business Standard English
While Apple has dominated the tablet market across the world, high prices have kept the company’s iPad out of reach for most Indian customers. Meanwhile, the mid-segment tab market has barely developed. However, over the last two years, companies have started targeting this segment. As the proliferation of over-the-top platform grows, makers like Realme and OPPO are making a beeline for the sub-Rs 20,000 tablet market. OPPO’s first foray is its OPPO Pad Air. The company expects to win a considerable market share with its Rs 16,999 offering, given the paucity of devices in the range.

80% OPPO Pad Air review: a noteworthy debut
Source: 91mobiles English
With its starting price of Rs 16,999, the OPPO Pad Air is priced affordably and gets quite a few things right. It does have to contend with existing options from the likes of Realme and Nokia, and the recently-announced Motorola Tab G62 also looks like a strong rival, too, especially because it comes with similar specs and pricing as OPPO’s offering. All said and done, the OPPO Pad Air turns out to be a compelling option for anyone looking for a reasonably-priced tablet for home use.

80% Oppo Pad Air review: A worthy budget tablet for its price
Source: The Indian Express English
If you are looking for a budget tablet for entertainment and daily use, the Oppo Pad Air is a good option. It has a nice design, is lightweight and the software does come with some useful features for tablet users. The split-screen and floating windows features are something that most tablet users will appreciate. I only hope that Oppo also brings more accessories for this product, especially an official cover. If you are looking to buy a tablet within a budget of Rs 17,000 and you don’t need LTE connectivity, Oppo Pad Air is an option to consider.

70% Oppo Pad Air Review: Built for Basics
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Oppo's first attempt at releasing a tablet for the Indian market seems like a decent one. It has managed to offer a decent budget machine that delivers average everyday performance at the right price, along with good build quality. It's missing 4G/LTE radios, a headphone jack, but the provision for expandable memory and a 128GB storage option kind of makes up for it. Overall, it fits the bill if all you want to do is watch movies, browse the web, or check email, but it isn't intended for gaming or productivity. Unfortunately for Oppo, the Realme Pad (Review) offers a similar form factor and core specifications at a lower price. It also has a 4G/LTE variant which starts at Rs. 15,999. Realme's software experience is snappier in comparison to the Oppo Pad Air as it's better optimised for a tablet. If you are willing to shell out a bit more money, Lenovo's Yoga Tab 11 (Review) offers a much better design with a built-in kickstand, and is built for entertainment with very good speakers that are loud enough to fill a small room.

With the Oppo Pad Air, the company is trying to break into the fledgling Indian tablet segment. But what edge does Oppo’s first tablet have over the similarly priced options from the likes of Realme, Samsung and others? Well, you get a great multimedia experience with a decent display and a nice set of speakers. Even the battery life is commendable. And design might not be striking, but the dune texture adds a nice touch. So, if you are looking for a dependable tablet for educational purposes, then Oppo Pad Air could be a great option for Rs 16,999.

80% Oppo Pad Air Review: Best in its segment
Source: The Times of India English
The Oppo Pad Air might seem mundane just like its rivals from Samsung and Realme for a sub- ₹20,000 tablet but it delivers where it matters – the overall user experience. I am not a fan of the Snapdragon 680 and its lethargic outlook to the performance but kudos to Oppo for optimising it well enough for doing basic tablet tasks. You also get a good display, a nice set of speakers, great battery life and an overall lightweight as well as fancy design. The Oppo Pad Air is then a great pick for someone wanting a tablet device for entertainment and educational purposes. We can also recommend it to those who have long wanted to own a tablet at a reasonable price without compromising on the smart software bits, provided you have an Oppo smartphone in your pocket.

Review – OPPO Pad Air: Actually good entry-level tablet!
Source: NLT English
With that said, the OPPO Pad Air is starting at only RM1,099. I actually will say that the OPPO Pad Air is much better than its competitors at this price range. Good job on this tablet.

OPPO Pad Air review - A sleek and stylish Android tablet that’s perfect for everyday use
Source: Tech Nave English
All things considered, the Pad Air is a solid tablet that is competitively priced at just RM1099 for the 4/64GB variant and RM1299 for the 4/128GB configuration. Its large 10.36-inch 2K display, awesome speakers, sleek design, and good battery life make it an excellent tablet for most people. If your budget is within this price range, you can't go wrong with the Pad Air. Nevertheless, one thing you should consider is whether you should spend more for a better overall tablet package with the Apple iPad (RM1499). While more capable, it is considerably more expensive, has a dated design with thick bezels, and iPadOS will definitely feel alien to you if you're only familiar with Android. Another option in the Android tablet space is the Nokia T20 which, at the same price of RM1099, offers 4G LTE support. However, the screen and processor of the Nokia tablet are a downgrade from the Pad Air.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 680: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 265 cores (four fast 2.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A73 based cores in a cluster and four power saving ARM Cortex-A53 based cores at 1.8 GHz) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in 6 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.36":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.4 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


73.4%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
