Redmi Pad in for review

0 7

Say hello to the Redmi Pad, the sub-brand’s first tablet and one that targets one competitor in the sphere – the Realme Pad.

The Redmi Pad comes with a 22.5W charger and a USB cable. However, the tablet itself can recharge its 8,000 mAh at 18W.

Among the highlights of the Redmi Pad is the quad speaker setup, adorned with all-important Dolby Atmos branding. It’s not just an etch on the skin though, there’s a settings panel dedicated solely to the Dolby Atmos feature. When turned on, Dolby Atmos makes a big difference to the sound quality. Especially in its dynamic setting, it gives the four speakers a real throbbing presence.

The Redmi Pad uses a 6nm MediaTek Helio G99 chipset with as much as 6GB of RAM (along with 3GB and 4GB models). Up front is a 10.61-inch 1200x2000px IPS LCD with a faster-than-usual 90Hz refresh rate. The Redmi Pad runs MIUI 13 with Android 12 on top. It’s smooth and responsive, and MIUI is a suitable software package, even at this larger screen size.

However, multitasking is more of an afterthought, and getting to a split-screen view of two apps isn’t the most straightforward process. The Redmi Pad would greatly benefit from Android 12L and its fast split-screen taskbar.

Now for a comparison with the Realme Pad. The Redmi tablet costs INR 14,999 for a 4/64GB model, while the Realme tablet costs INR 17,499 for its 4/64GB configuration. Now, the Realme Pad is 4G compatible at that price, while the Redmi Pad isn’t, but that’s about where Realme takes its lead.

The Redmi Pad has a screen with a high refresh rate, a larger battery and a faster and more efficient chipset.
