Xiaomi Pad 5: an attractive alternative to Android
The Xiaomi Pad 5 hurts the competition and is one of the best options in the mid-range segment of Android tablets. Xiaomi obliges, its tablet offers a very interesting quality/price ratio thanks to its technical sheet worthy of a premium tablet, but without the high price. Thus we find an excellent 11-inch LCD screen, which shows a WQHD + definition of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. This provides good immersion in video content, especially as the tablet supports Dolby Vision (HDR) and Dolby Atmos to ensure a good audio experience. To make up for the absence of OLED, the panel offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz, for better fluidity.
If the navigation is fluid, Xiaomi has not neglected the performance of its tablet. It is powered by the powerful Snapdragon 860 supported by 6 GB of RAM, the same processor currently equipped in the Poco X3 Pro. This configuration is very efficient and without slowdowns, whether it is for multitasking, or even launching 3D games with maximum graphics in some cases. This was confirmed in our test: the Pad 5 was more powerful than Samsung’s Galaxy S7 FE, but at a considerably higher price. Plus, with Android 11 and the brand’s own interface, you’ll get an intuitive iOS-like experience.
A solid technical sheet, despite some concessions.
It also takes a lot from the design of the top-of-the-range tablets from the Cupertino company, with well-rounded edges and thin borders around the screen, for which we appreciate the effort of the brand, which offers beautiful finishes. with such price positioning. However, on the photography side, it will struggle to compete with the iPad, which has the benefit of offering a LiDAR sensor. You’ll find a simple 13-megapixel main sensor on the back, as well as an 8-megapixel sensor on the front, enough for occasional video calls.
And if you tend to spend several hours talking during your video calls, the tablet is still quite robust thanks to its large 8,720 mAh battery. It will easily last a good day or even two depending on your usage. This remains in the average of the tablets on the market, where, for example, a 30-minute Fortnite game will only make you lose 7%. Charging is done through its USB-C port, but don’t trust the speed too much, as it will take just over two hours to be at 100%.
