Reviews for the Xiaomi Pad 5

87.6% Xiaomi Pad 5 Tablet review - Android-Alternative to the cheapest iPad | Notebookcheck
A lot of performance, 120 Hz display and a chic design in the style of the Apple iPad Air: The 11-inch Xiaomi Pad 5 offers all that for 400 Euros (~$450) and is thus an interesting alternative to the Apple iPad 2021, which is one of the best tablets in this price range. We will find out whether the Pad 5 can really compete with the Apple rival in our review.
80% Xiaomi Pad 5 review: An all-in-one tablet for all-rounded use
Source: Hardware Zone English
Xiaomi Pad 5 seems to tick all the feature boxes nicely, which offers a rather good video viewing experience, and note-taking capabilities, all for just S$449 for the tablet and a further S$99 for the Xiaomi Smart Pen. This tablet can at times even be found for as S$399 at special sale periods, making it even more competitive than it already is. There's also a 256GB internal storage version at S$529 for those who want to keep more apps loaded and available at their fingertips. Granted, this tablet is not for those looking to do professional work, it is however well-positioned as an all-rounder device for casual use. Want to watch movies on the go? The Xiaomi PAd 5 is an excellent choice with good sound and display quality for the casual user, plays HDR content, and supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos content too. A student who wants to do some light reading and jotting down notes? No problem, with the optional Xiaomi Smart Pen to bundle with the tablet. Someone who wants to sketch something? Check. Want another large screen gadget with Youtube Kids to entertain your kids?

It is a tablet that focuses on attractive design, quality of workmanship, excellent screen and performance that will work in all applications. It is guaranteed by Snapdragon 860 and 6 GB of RAM, while energy is provided by a 8720 mAh battery - it provides many hours of uninterrupted entertainment. If you do not mind the lack of GPS, NFC, LTE or a headphone jack, it will be a very successful purchase.

Xiaomi Pad 5 Review - 3 Months After!

This year, the return of Xiaomi slate tablets is an excellent choice. With the growing demand for other devices for productivity in home school or work from home setups, the Xiaomi Pad 5 tablet is one of the best options to consider because it provides versatility at an affordable price. Today we will be talking about some of Xiaomi Pad 5 features and what are its pros and cons.

Finally, let’s talk about the price. The Xiaomi Pad 5 is available locally for PHP 17,990 for 128GB variant and PHP 19,990 for the 256GB option. It sure is an attractive price tag for what it offers, and honestly, you’re even getting more with a vibrant 120Hz display, superb performance, long battery life, quad Dolby Atmos speakers, and very good cameras. The only things you should consider though, are its non-expandable storage, lack of a headphone port, its front camera placement if you’ll be doing a lot of video calls, and the fact that it’s a Wi-Fi-only tablet. If you can deal with that, then we highly recommend this Xiaomi Pad 5, especially for savvy homeschoolers and professionals.

Xiaomi Pad 5 Review – All rounder Tablet with Versatility On-The-Go
Source: Manila Shaker English
The Xiaomi Pad 5 starts at P17,990 for the 6GB/128GB and P19,990 for the higher 6GB/256GB configuration. It is available locally in the country and the tablet is a great value for money. It has the processing power to run even the most graphically demanding games, it has a stunning display and excellent stereo speakers. The Xiaomi Pad 5’s versatility is the cherry on top, but in order to fully use the tablet as a portable laptop-style tablet, you must purchase the necessary accessories. Still, using it as a tablet provides increased productivity at an affordable price best for home school or office work.

85% Xiaomi Pad 5 Review: A Lean, Mean, Fighting Machine
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
Wrapping up this review, the Xiaomi Pad 5 stands as an undisputed winner in its price class. It has a great design, excellent display, powerful performance, and decent battery endurance. Disregarding Lenovo’s Xiaoxin Pad Pro which isn’t readily available outside of China, there’s really not much competition to this tablet. Power users might want to consider the Galaxy Tab S7 FE that bundles an S Pen for free. But it’s not as powerful, and neither does it have as capable a display or audio setup. Plus, its base variant brings just 4GB RAM, which means you’ll be met with frequent stutters when you have multiple apps running concurrently. Apple’s latest 9th gen iPad is another great contender for your money in this category thanks to the A13 Bionic chip and iPadOS. But the Xiaomi Pad 5 has its own superiorities—that mostly revolve around media consumption. As a result, if you aren’t particularly looking for a productivity-oriented tablet, this is a no-brainer. However, the mighty capable Snapdragon 860 inside feels almost wasted on this tablet.

80% Xiaomi Pad 5 review: a good-looking tablet for Android fans
Source: T3 English
The Xiaomi Pad 5 is an Android tablet that looks good and performs well, it has a decent amount of power, a reliable battery that will easily last you the day and a stunning 11-inch display. You’ll be able to use it for everything from work to play, but if you need extra accessories for it you will have to buy those separately. What’s really great here is that you do get so much for your money, this is a mid-range tablet that could have fooled me into thinking it’s a much pricier piece of kit than it actually is. Any Android fan will get along well with the Xiaomi Pad 5.

The Xiaomi Pad 5 is an exceptional Android tablet – but it is still an Android tablet. There’s little to fault on the hardware front, where you’ll find a lightweight design bolstered by strong specs, a gorgeous display, and great speakers. It would be nice to see more up-to-date connectivity options – not least an LTE model – but there’s little else to complain about here. The software side is typical for an Android tablet, which is to say it’s fine, but can’t match an iPad. Despite Xiaomi’s best efforts, Android simply isn’t fully optimised for tablets, so you will run into occasional headaches as you navigate the Pad 5. Still, the tablet runs smoothly even if it doesn’t fully make the most of the big screen, and with Android 12L’s improvements on the horizon this doesn’t feel like enough reason to resist the Pad 5. Simply put, if you want to buy a tablet around this price and don’t mind stumping for Android, this is the one to buy.

The Xiaomi Pad 5 is the latest Android tablet hoping to dethrone the iPad Air 4 as the Trusted Recommended tablet for most people. From a hardware perspective it’s an impressive device, ticking all the right boxes for basic productivity and entertainment use. And if you want a tablet for Netflix, web browsing and Game Pass, but don’t fancy an iPad, then you’ll struggle to do better than the Pad 5 at the moment. The only real downside is that ongoing optimisation issues around Android on a tablet stop it from fully delivering on its hardware’s promise.

85% Xiaomi Pad 5 review: Excellent Multimedia Tablet
Source: Root Nation English
The Xiaomi Pad 5 is definitely one of the best deals in its price segment. This is a good 11-inch tablet with the recognizable design, a 120 Hz display, stable and powerful hardware, good battery life and quite good stereo speakers. It’s great for multimedia and games, and if you buy a stylus and a keyboard, it will also do for some office tasks. However, due to the lack of a GPS module and a version with cellular network, it is not a universal tablet for every type of user. Some users may also be frustrated by the lack of a 3.5mm audio port and a fingerprint scanner. Otherwise, it is an excellent balanced tablet without serious flaws.

80% Xiaomi Pad 5 review: Android's answer to the iPad?
Source: Pocket Lint English
All in all, Xiaomi's tablet venture for wider markets is a good-looking and competently specified slate. It's a shame the stylus isn't included in the box, but if you're looking for a tablet predominantly for media consumption then it's a competitive offering against the likes of Samsung or Lenovo. That said, there's still a question over usability beyond a 'big-phone-like' device, because Google has to date largely failed to embrace more work-focused functionality modes in Android - something Apple has slowly and more effectively been working on - and, therefore, without accessories to bolster its appeal as a versatile laptop alternative, this Xiaomi hits the same hurdles as any recent Android tablet has had to face. Still, if that's what you're looking for then the Pad 5's stellar battery life, fair price, high refresh-rate screen, and a lighter touch with its MIUI software, all combines to make for one of the more competent Android slates we've seen for some time. It won't have Apple worried, mind, but as a step in the right direction for Google's market it's a strong entry.

The Xiaomi Pad 5 is a fantastic all-rounder Android tablet with a good-looking screen, lots of processing power and well-optimized software. In fact, it’s the best rival to the entry-level iPad we’ve seen so far, especially at a similar price. Our few problems with the tablet are issues that most slates face, like the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack or the fact that arguably necessary peripherals will cause you to spend more money, but that just shows how well-rounded this slate is.

Xiaomi Pad 5 Review Philippines: Must Buy Tab

While Xiaomi doesn’t push out new tablets every year like their phone arm but when they do announce a new slate, you can be sure it’ll be as good as their phones. That’s the case for the Xiaomi Pad 5 in our review of it for the Philippines, making it the tablet to buy if you want a solid option for work or for play. The Xiaomi Pad 5 is one of the best tabs that’s crossed our review labs so far in the Philippines. There’s plenty of value here, thanks to its flagship-grade performance, excellent display, great speakers as well as its mid-range price.

80% Xiaomi Pad 5 review: An exceptional Android tablet
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Xiaomi Pad 5 is the tablet many Android fans have been searching for, boasting a brilliant display, a quality audio setup and a long-lasting battery casual tablet users will appreciate. With the hugely improved MIUI for Pad, Xiaomi’s Android slate is now one step closer to the fluid and adaptable OS that makes Apple’s iPad so popular, especially when it’s attached to a suitable keyboard and the Xiaomi Smart Pen. So, does the Xiaomi Pad 5 set a new standard for Android tablets? Not quite, but it's still a compelling device. The lack of an included stylus or keyboard may keep the tablet’s cost down, but it also prevents it from being anything more than a great slate for binge-watching movies or browsing the internet. Plus, using a previous-gen Snapdragon processor means it can’t keep up with the current generations of chips.

80% Xiaomi Pad 5 Review — The Entertainer
Source: Pokde English
Should you get the XIaomi Pad 5? If you are looking for a tablet for media consumption, then yes, this is definitely a great option for you. The display is great, the audio is amazing, and it is definitely a great tablet to watch movies on. If you plan on getting it for gaming, there’s also plenty of performance here, although I don’t find it comfortable gaming on such a huge device, unless you are willing to connect a controller to it. But if you want a tablet for productivity as some sort of a laptop replacement, the Xiaomi Pad 5 doesn’t exactly cut it. You can get the PC Mode to work, but I can’t exactly recommend it as one of the features of the Xiaomi Pad 5, since you have to get it from a third-party source, rather than it being a part of the Xiaomi Pad 5. It is worth mentioning that PC Mode was released to the Mi MIX Fold as an update, so we might see it arrive on the Xiaomi Pad 5 in a similar way, but it would be irresponsible for me to recommend you getting the Xiaomi Pad 5 for a feature that may or may not be made available officially.

Review – Xiaomi Pad 5 + Xiaomi Smart Pen: Fantastic for movies and gaming
Source: NLT English
The base model of the Xiaomi Pad 5 is starting at RM1,399 and for the tablet alone, I think it’s a good option. We can play games and watch movies on this tablet – and it is able to provide a magnificent experience. But, if you want to use a stylus to draw on the tablet, then I suggest you buy some other tablets instead. The Xiaomi Smart Pen is quite disappointing in terms of features available, and again – according to the leaked price, it should be RM399, hence totaling up the entire tablet + pen price to RM1,798. It’s just not worth that price. If you want to buy a tablet with a stylus, then I suggest you get the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE instead. The S Pen is included in the box, and its software is much more refined and matured than what Xiaomi has to offer, yet its price is very similar – at RM1,899.

The Xiaomi Pad 5 is a very capable tablet with snappy performance and a vibrant and responsive display.

The Xiaomi Pad 5 strikes the perfect balance of features at this affordable €349 price tag. It has a lovely screen with premium Dolby Vision support and 120Hz refresh rate, the four Dolby Atmos speakers are superb, and the performance is top-notch. This means the Pad 5 is ideal for gaming, multimedia, video streaming, all sorts of videos and music, as well as powerful office apps and tools. We did not expect the photo and video camera quality to be this good, but it is, and whenever an occasion arises, the Pad 5 will ace it with its cams. The Pad 5 is not ideal - there is no cellular option, the bundled charger isn't that fast, and the Smart Pen is expensive. Some fan-favorite features like a microSD card slot and 3.5mm jack are missing, too. But even with the omissions we mentioned, the Xiaomi Pad 5 is hands down the best tablet within the sub €400 bracket. It easily gets our recommendation as it aces everything it was designed to do and lives up to every promise Xiaomi has given.

Xiaomi Pad 5 Review: A sleek and sexy Android tablet made for work and play
Source: XDA Developers English
Xiaomi is selling the Pad 5 in Europe starting at €349 (around $412) for the base 6GB/128GB version (doubling the storage bumps price up to €399). These prices in a vacuum are really good in Europe. However, Apple just announced yesterday a new 10.9-inch iPad starting at €389 in Europe. Just like Xiaomi’s Pad 5, Apple’s new entry-level iPad runs on a two-year-old SoC (Apple A13 Bionic), and from my experience, Apple’s A13 Bionic is more powerful than the Snapdragon 860 in the Pad 5. The iPad, of course, has a much more fleshed out eco-system. But whatever the case, the Xiaomi Pad 5, along with Samsung’s recent offerings, have made Android tablets relevant again. The Xiaomi Pad 5 just needs some software polish, when (if) they arrive, it will be yet another great value offering for a company known for offering the best value around.

Model:

The latest Xiaomi Pad 5 is a fantastic all-rounder Android tablet with a good-looking screen, lots of processing power and well-optimized software. In terms of its design, the Xiaomi Pad 5’s appearance can be compared to that of one of Apple’s iPad Air 4 which is a device that is thin, has a narrow bezel and boasts a minimalist design. As for the slate, it has a thickness of just 6.9mm and dimensions of 254.7 x 166.3mm and weighs 511g. With such a weight, it is certainly not the lightest tablet out there. Around the edges of the slate, there is a power button on the top edge and a volume rocker on the right edge. There is also a front-facing camera above the screen when the device is held in a portrait orientation. It is worth mentioning that some tablets do have the front-facing camera on the long edge, which is better for video calling.

As for its connectivity, there is a USB-C port on the tablet but there is no 3.5mm headphone jack. This might be a disappointment for some. The back of the tablet is made of plastic which feels sturdy. The tablet is available in grey, white and green. The display is one of the key specs of the Xiaomi Pad 5 which comes with an 11-inch screen with 1600 x 2560 resolution. In addition, the device has a 120Hz refresh rate and the ability to display over a billion colours. Overall, the display looks great with bold colours and good contrast with high resolution which certainly helps to make streaming from various services or while playing games. On the other hand, the screen aspect ratio of 1.6:1 means the slate is suited for work, as the screen can be split in two different documents while ensuring both get a roughly A4 shaped slice of display.

In terms of its performance, the Xiaomi Pad 5 has been incorporated with the Snapdragon 860 chipset which is not quite as powerful as the M1 in the iPad Pro (2021) range or the Snapdragon 865 Plus in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series, but it still provides lots of processing power, beating out many other tablets. In addition, this chipset is joined by 6GB of RAM along with either 128GB or 256GB of storage. The 256GB version would be great for students or business users, as it ensures easy download of lots of games, movies or songs and still have space for all the work and files. As for its battery, this tablet gets a 8,720mAh battery which might sound rather average for a slate of its size, but the actual lasting power of this tablet is definitely appreciable. It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi estimates 5 days of music playback, 16 hours of video playback or 10 hours of gaming time on the slate which is rather impressive.

Qualcomm Adreno 640: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is intergrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 20% faster than the Adreno 630 in the Snapdragon 845 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

SD 860: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in 2021 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC. Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a modified ARM Cortex-A76 architecture clocked at up to 2.96 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A76 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a X24 LTE modem (up to 2 Gigbit download), a new Wi-Fi modem (Wi-Fi 6 ready, 60 GHz mmWave), Hexagon 690 DSP with new Tensor cores for AI processing, a Spectra 380 ISP with an integrated computer vision engine and an integrated LPDDR4x memory controller. Similar to the older Snapdragon 855+ but with support for 16 GB RAM.

11.00":

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.

0.511 kg:

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


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.


84.57%: 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.
