86.4% Xiaomi MiPad 2 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
iPad Mini clone. The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi launches a 7.9-inch tablet dubbed MiPad 2 on the market that is a carbon copy of Apple's iPad Mini.

Which small tablet should you buy?
Source: Tech Advisor English
If money is no object then the iPad mini 4 is the superior tablet here with all-round quality on offer. That's not to say the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is bad, though. We're really impressed with it and you can save a lot of cash this way. However, prepare yourself for a slightly odd Android experience which requires some tweaking due to its Chinese roots.

90% iPad mini rival running Android or Windows is one of the best cheap tablets
Source: Tech Advisor English
Whether Xiaomi intended to or not, the Mi Pad 2 is an Android tablet disguised as an iPad mini. This may disgust you or be exactly what you're looking for. Either way, we can't deny that this is a well-made, stylish tablet with decent specs for the price. You're best off getting the 64GB model and if the iOS style user interface is a turn-off, remember that Android is highly customisable.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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.
