Redmi Pad Design
The Redmi Pad Despite being a Budget android tablet does not look like one. With an all metal body, it offers a good in-hand feel. The flat frame design and good weight distribution make the under tablet feel lighter than its actual weight of 465 grams. It is also fairly thin at 7.1 mm.
Xiaomi send us the mid green color of the Redmi Pad Review, which has a matte finish. If you want something more classic looking or versatile, there are the moonlight silver and refined gray color options. The Redmi Pad is being offered with up to 128GB of internal storage, and if you want more, there is support for storage expansion of up to 1TB.
At the top of the right edge of the frame are the volume buttons, whereas the tiny power button is at the corner of the top edge. You also get four speaker grills two at the top and two at the bottom. The Redmi Pad does not get a 3.5 mm headphone jack, which might be a bummer for some.
On the front there is a 10.61 inch IPS LCD with a 2K resolution, compared to the competition, The Redmi Pad has a slight edge with its 90Hz refresher display and support for up to a billion colors.
The 10-bit display also comes with a 15:9 aspect ratio and 400 minutes of peak brightness. There is no HGR 10 support nor any oleo phobic coating on the display. Which means you will find yourself cleaning fingerprints and smudges regularly.
Coming to the performance, the Redmi Pad features a MediaTek Helio G99 SoC. the Redmi Pad can handle basic day-to-day web browsing and scrolling well. games such as Call of Duty Mobile and Asphalt 9 Legends ran well along with light lighter such as Subway surfers. There were very minus start in some games such as Call of Duty, but overall, the gaming experience on the Redmi Pad was quite good.
The 8000mAh battery can last a full day without requiring you to charge it. In our battery loop test, the Redmi pad lasted for 14 hours and 53 minutes, which is good. If you consume video content and scroll through your social media feed for a couple of hours a day, the Redmi Pad would be needed to recharge every third of four day. Also, the tablet supports only 18W fast charging Xiaomi has bundled a 22.5W charging adapter in the box.
On the software side of things, the Redmi Pad runs on the Android 12 based MIUI 13 skin. The software experience on the Redmi Pad is quite clean and smooth. There was no sign of any start or software bugs across the user interface. MIUI 13 for pad comes with close to no bloatware, which is very rare to see in Xiaomi products.
What is common to see is the number of features that MIUI adds on top of Android. These include split screen floating windows, etc. Xiaomi is promised to offer at least two major and Android updates and security patches for three years For the Redmi Pad.
The Redmi Pad has an 8 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front camera. The rear camera is useful only for scanning documents as the dynamic range is below average and the colors are a bit washed out for anything else. The front camera does a decent job with selfies and because it is placed on the right bezel, you are always looking directly into the camera during video calls.
The Redmi Pad with all its hardware and software features is certainly an obvious recommendation for anyone looking to buy an Android tablet under 20,000 rupees. with a capable performance unit, a big battery, and a large screen, the red pad is suitable for a majority of use cases including gaming. We would recommend buying the 4GB Ram variant, or possibly even the 6GB RAM variant as you not only get more storage, but also the assurance of a smoother user experience.
Some of the key MIUI 13 for bad features such as split screen, floating windows, multi window and more are not available on the 3GB RAM Variant, so it makes sense to skip it. So that’s our Redmi Pad Review.
