The Mi Pad 4 is a great budget tablet, with an attractive 8in design and some competitive hardware onboard. It ticks most of our boxes, though we fear some users may find the unfamiliar MIUI operating system and lack of Google Play out of the box confusing.

Comment

Model: The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 belongs to the Xiaomi Mi Pad series of affordable tablets that has always provided great value in terms of specifications and pricing. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 was launched in China in June as the latest iteration of the Mi Pad series with an 8-inch WUXGA (1920×1200) IPS display and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. It can be an ideal device for all types of users including casual users, gamers or professionals. The Mi Pad 4 has been made for more convenient use with one hand. As a small-sized tablet, the Mi Pad 4 is obviously easier to control. The previous generation model comes with a 4:3 aspect ratio, while the new model uses a 16:10 aspect ratio, narrowing the width of four sides. That’s why the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 becomes slenderer. The tablet is made out of a metal body and available in the two colors, which are Black and Rose-Gold. In addition, the screen share is 12.5 % higher than the 7.9-inch 4:3 Mi Pad 3’s. It is worth noting that our protagonist has been reduced to 1920 x 1200 in screen resolution. So, we have to state it is a step backwards in comparison to the Mi Pad 3’s 2048 x 1536 resolution. Of course, this also moderately relieves the pressure of processor rendering. At the same time, it is more power-efficient, and the pros and cons must be measured by users themselves. The Mi Pad 4 is featured with the 5.0 MP front camera and 13.0 MP rear camera let you capture memorable moments or chat with friends. But in the low light, it will not be able to capture good images. For the video calling, it is nice, and the picture from the rear camera is good.

The tablet is equipped with the 8.0-inch FHD display with 2.048 x 1.536 resolution. The display supports multi touch up to 3 fingers. The IPS display provides better viewing angles. There is no screen protector on the display so if users need any kind of protection they have to do it themselves. The display is almost 72 % of the body. The tablet features a proximity sensor and a light sensor. With the latest MIUI 9.5, a user can turn on the Night Mode. There is also a reading mode as well for the best and optimal brightness for the reading. This time the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 features the latest processor. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor. This octa-core processor clubbed with the 3 GB / 4 GB of RAM. Thanks to its Qualcomm Adreno 512 GPU users can easily watch movies in the HD resolution without any lagging. In addition to the hardware enhancement, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 comes with an optimized software. Moreover, it can be considered one of the most optimized Android tablets currently available on the market. First of all, users will notice the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 cancelled the virtual buttons seen on the Mi Pad 3 and supports the latest MIUI gestures. Not only that, but the user can also call out the navigation ball at the edge of the screen at any time, which is an advantage. This is obviously necessary for a large-screen Xiaomi tablet.

Qualcomm Adreno 512: Integrated graphics card based on the Adreno 500 architecture, like the Adreno 520 in the Snapdragon 820. According to Qualcomm up to 30% faster than the previous generation (Adreno 510?). Supports DirectX12, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE.

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

SD 660: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2.2 GHz cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz cores) and a rather slow Adreno 512 GPU. Manufactured in a 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


8.00":

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.

0.3425 kg:

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


Xiaomi:

Xiaomi Tech was founded as a Chinese smartphone producer in 2010 and soon reached high market shares in its home market. Although Xiaomi is not one of the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers worldwide in 2016, it is nevertheless one of the big global players in this market segment.

Since 2015 there are many reviews. The ratings have been above average since 2016.


81.02%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
