realme Pad 2 Review Philippines: Full Makeover
Source: Unbox English
realme has come a long way since launching its first tablet back in 2021. The Pad 2 has all the necessary upgrades that make it one of the best budget tablets you can buy in the Philippines. Aside from the good hardware selection, the software also played a big factor, as realme joins other brands in providing a better Android tablet experience with an optimized UI.

70% Realme Pad 2 review: An ‘upgraded’ budget entertainer
Source: Gadgets Now English
The Realme Pad 2 is just a basic, upgraded budget segment tablet that is good for content consumption. With no accessories to go with it, the tablet cannot be used as a productivity device. However, a display with a high refresh rate, bigger RAM options, cellular connectivity, fast charging capability and a larger display compared to its competitors does justify its Rs 19,999 price tag. If you are looking for a more compact tablet and are on a tight budget, you can also check out the Redmi Pad.

80% Realme Pad 2 review: several upgrades make it worth buying under Rs 20,000
Source: 91mobiles English
The Realme Pad 2 comes with a price tag of Rs 19,999, which is several notches higher than its predecessor. For what Realme is asking, the brand is giving you a 2K 120Hz display, a relatively smooth processor that can handle basic workloads and entertainment, and bigger battery life, among other things. Overall, it’s a solid tablet in this segment and manages to one-up many of its rivals, such as the Redmi Pad, Moto Tab G62, and Honor Pad X9. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is likely to offer a better display and speakers, it doesn’t hold up to the Realme Pad 2 in the battery and chipset departments. Aside from the fact that it is quite a dated model now. Despite some of its downsides, the Realme Pad 2 is easily one of the best tablets under Rs 20,000 in India right now for the simple fact that there aren’t many new tablets in this segment. If you’re looking for a purely entertainment-centric tablet that looks good and is convenient to travel with, the Realme Pad 2 is a great budget option.

90% Realme Pad 2 Review: A Stylish Upgrade That Covers the Basics
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
From a broader standpoint, the Realme Pad 2 remains the same in terms of form and function as the previous model. It's best used as a media consumption device and nothing more. Realme missed the opportunity to utilise the tablet as a light productivity device by not launching a keyboard accessory with it. Neither can it be used scribble on, because it does not offer stylus support either. However, the Realme Pad 2 builds on the weaknesses of its predecessor and manages to be an all-rounder of sorts by adding high-refresh rate display, an updated processor and cellular connectivity to its feature set. At Rs. 19,999, it's hard to get anything like it in the market. Its closest competition includes the Redmi Pad (Review) and the Oppo Pad Air (Review) which may be priced a bit lower, but lacks cellular connectivity, and have smaller displays and batteries.

realme Pad 2 Hands-on and First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English
realme Pad 2 is an overall good Android tablet for its price, it has a bunch of features and perks that we like including its large 11.5-inch 10-bit display with a crisp 2K resolution, a smooth 120 Hz refresh rate, loud quad speakers with Dolby effect, long-lasting 8,320 mAh battery with fast charging, and more. The good part is that the tablet comes in an LTE variant which gives the users an option to use a 4G connection anytime where they don’t have access to Wi-Fi. In addition to these, the realme Pad 2 is a decent performer (Helio G99) and uses the realme UI 4.0 for extra features on top of Android 13. The realme Pad 2 does have a compelling package and we would surely recommend it to those who are looking for a budget-friendly tablet with LTE support and a solid multimedia experience.

70% I tried the Realme Pad 2 tablet with 4G support: Here’s my experience
Source: The Indian Express English
The Realme Pad 2 may not have high-end specifications and features but where the device makes a huge difference is the support for LTE connectivity. In tier-one and tier-two cities, you can easily access high-speed internet via broadband. However, the majority of the population living in smaller towns is devoid of broadband connectivity, and getting a tablet with LTE connectivity is a huge plus point. At Rs 19,999, the Realme Pad 2 tablet is worth checking out but I also encourage you to look for other options with a similar set of features.

Realme Pad 2 review: Big screen companion good for routine everyday chores
Source: Business Standard English
The Realme Pad 2 is a no-frill tablet good as a companion big screen device for basic everyday tasks such as attending video calls, checking emails, scrolling social media feeds, reading books, attending online classes, etc. The tablet thin and lightweight construction makes it easy to carry, thus aids portability. However, it is not the device to consider for multimedia experience. Not that it is incapable, but the experience leaves one asking for more.

ARM Mali-G57 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

Helio G99: ARM based octa-core SoC with 2x big ARM Cortex-A76 cores and 6x small and power efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores. All clocked up to 2.2 GHz. Integrates a Cat-13 LTE Modem (4G) and a ARM Mali-G57 MP2 graphics card.

11.50":

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.

77.5%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
