Reviews for the realme Pad Mini

Realme Pad Mini Review: Decent tablet for the price, but keep your expectations low
Source: XDA Developers English
Based on your use case, the answer to this question can either be a resounding YES!, an undecisive maybe, or a strong no. Are you purchasing the tablet for your kid to watch videos or play some casual games? I think you should get it right away. It’s a cheap tablet that gets this job done, and since the hardware is inherently basic, it works as advertised for these basic needs. Do you currently binge Netflix on your phone and want to get the tablet for a better viewing experience? You can consider buying it, provided you’re OK with the low-resolution display. Again, the price of this tablet makes it easy to overlook several of its flaws. Do you plan on playing demanding games like PUBG or getting some serious work done on the tablet? Your money would be better spent on a mid-range phone or a slightly more premium tablet like the original Realme Pad, the Nokia T20 Tab, or the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8. The Galaxy Tab A8 is a particularly good alternative in this price range, as One UI offers some great features for productivity. It even secured a spot on our list of the best Android tablets.

realme Pad mini – Hands-On and First Look | First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English
The realme Pad mini offers a large 8.7-inch display which is sufficiently large, a seamless design with a 7.6 mm slim form factor, a solid build quality, and dual loudspeakers for a stereo experience. It also comes with a decent hardware package and a reasonable battery size of 6,400 mAh capacity. For those who are looking for an 8-inch Android tablet, the realme Pad mini seems the best tablet in this price range, the price starts at ₹10,999 for its 3 GB + 32 GB W-Fi variant and goes 14,999 for its LTE 4 GB + 64 GB variant.

realme Pad Mini Review Philippines: Mixed Bag
Source: Unbox English
Our realme Pad Mini review for the Philippine market tells us that the brand’s newest tablet is somewhat of a mixed bag. It looks great and is affordably priced, but software problems, mediocre performance from the processor as well as low storage and RAM options rob the tablet of its potential value.

realme Pad mini Review

The realme Pad mini is a good follow-up to the realme Pad. It feels premium, portable, has 4G LTE connectivity, and a big battery. The price, however, is a bit tricky. The 3GB + 32GB LTE variant is at PHP 9,990, while the 4GB + 64GB 4G LTE is at PHP 11,990. A WiFi-only model will be available soon. If you’re going for the entry-level, just add PHP 1K more and you’re better off with the realme Pad, minus the LTE connectivity and extra portability, which is not a big deal. You’ll get a better screen, more powerful chipset, quad-speakers, and a much bigger battery with fast charging. But if you’re looking at the 4GB + 64GB model, that could work, if you really need the smaller size and if budget is an issue. But for an extra PHP 3K more, you can also opt for the 4GB + 64GB LTE realme Pad. I think that would be a much better value for your money.

Realme Pad Mini Review - A new Affordable Tablet!
Source: Manila Shaker English
Realme's first attempt on the android tablet last year was a success. They did an impressive job on releasing a bang for the buck device, and now they are back for another variant of the realme pad which is the smaller one, the realme pad mini. This pretty much sports the same spec sheet but take a look at this video as we uncover its specs and see some of its performance at work.

This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

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.

0.372 kg:

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

77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
