Xiaomi wants to demonstrate the opposite, signing its return in the tablet sector after 4 years of absence and launching the Xiaomi Pad 5. The promise: to offer an attractive price / quality ratio for an Android tablet, while delivering a technical sheet of the highest caliber. A good alternative to an Apple or Samsung tablet that becomes more accessible thanks to this offer.

A tablet at an attractive price without too many concessions
Faced with the market leaders, Apple and Samsung, the Xiaomi Pad 5 is positioned as a true competitor in the mid-range tablet segment. And as usual, the Chinese brand does well relying on a technical sheet worthy of a premium tablet, but without the price. In fact, it incorporates a Snapdragon 860, which in turn is compatible with 6 GB of RAM, the same configuration as a Poco X3 Pro. On the side of the screen, there is an 11-inch LCD panel, which shows a WQHD + definition. 2560 x 1600 pixels. This makes it possible to offer a good immersion in video content, especially since the tablet supports Dolby Vision (HDR) and Dolby Atmos to ensure a good audio experience. And if, sadly, the screen is not OLED, it is still offered with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, for better fluidity.
This configuration is therefore very effective, whether for multitasking, or even for launching 3D games with maximum graphics in some cases. In our test, the benchmarks even showed that the Pad 5 was more powerful than Samsung’s Galaxy S7 FE, which was offered at a considerably higher price. Add to that, Android 11 and the brand’s home interface, and you’ve got an iOS-like experience, thanks to certain features, including the control center, which is inspired by Apple’s home operating system.
Holding on to make your video carefree
In addition, Xiaomi’s new tablet is sufficiently inspired by the design of the high-end tablets of the Cupertino company, with well-rounded edges and thin edges around the screen. Otherwise, for the photo, it will have a hard time competing with the iPad, which has the advantage of offering a LiDAR sensor. You’ll even find a 13-megapixel main sensor on the back, as well as an 8-megapixel sensor on the front, enough for occasional video calls.
Finally, in its new tablet, Xiaomi includes a 8,720 mAh battery that allows a use of more than two days, depending on its use. This remains in the average tablet market, where, for example, a 30-minute game in Fortnite will make you lose only 7%. Charging is done through its USB-C port, but don’t rely too heavily on speed as it will take a little over two hours to reach 100%.
