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.
