Xiaomi Pad 5 Review

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.

Hands on: Xiaomi Pad 5 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Xiaomi Pad 5 is a very capable tablet with snappy performance and a vibrant and responsive display. The camera quality could be better, but it’s good enough to take photos of notes and join calls, while the addition of Dolby Vision makes this tablet a great choice for streaming movies on-the-go.

Xiaomi Pad 5 Unboxing, Hands-on Philippines: Flagship-grade Tab
Source: Unbox English
The Xiaomi Pad 5 looks to be another great tablet offering in the Philippines, especially when you consider what you’re paying for and what you’re getting. There’s been a dearth of mid-range tabs in the Philippines as of late, and the Xiaomi Pad 5 looks to be a solid option for people willing to drop money for a good quality tablet.

82% Xiaomi Pad 5 review
Source: GSM Arena English
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.

Xiaomi Pad 5 initial review: A great slate?
Source: Pocket Lint English
Xiaomi's tablet venture for wider markets is a good-looking, well priced and competently specified slate. However, there's still the big question over usability beyond a 'big-phone-like' device for media consumption, because Google has largely failed to embrace more work-focused functionality modes in Android - which is not just a Xiaomi issue by any means. It's a shame the stylus isn't included here, too.

Our first impressions with the Xiaomi Pad 5 are positive - it felt snappy, had an impressive camera was pleasingly lightweight. In particular the software felt well suited to the large form factor. We'll need to test it further to say for sure, but this could be the iPad rival the Android tablet market has been searching for.

Xiaomi Mi Tablet 5 Pro Review: Best Alternative of iPad Pro 2021
Source: Igeekphone English
Compared with previous products, Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro is definitely a qualitative change, but there is still a long way to go in terms of ecological experience. Lei Jun also made it clear at the press conference that this is something that requires everyone to collaborate, and the road is long. , I will search from top to bottom, and hope that one day domestic mobile phone manufacturers can jointly create a tablet ecosystem that can directly confront Apple’s iPad. I am full of expectations.

Comment

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.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Qualcomm Snapdragon:

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.

SD 870: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in mid 2020 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC (improved N7P). Integrates one Prime Core based on a ARM Cortex-A77 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A77 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.

11.00:

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.511 kg:

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

0.515 kg:


83.5%: 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.
