I have been using this for over a month now. And overall my experience with Mi pad is positive. Yes, its true that many inbuilt apps and few features available on mobile version of MIUI OS are missing here but still the OS is sleek and very functional. But its android and you always have access to plethora of apps which should deal with almost anything you need on a tablet. nnLets start with Positives:nn1. This has a superb display. And easily beats most of the displays in market, (Also mind brightness is still not very impressive but i can say good for indoor usage) n2. OS is beautiful and Functional !! (MIUI is good, it contains very intuitive design and functionalities) n3. Battery backup is the best i have seen on any tablet so far (believe me, its better than even ipad, i charge it once in 2 days on moderate usage) n4. Design and build quality is top notch (reminds me of good old nokia days ;)n(China doesnot make inferior quality products anymore, I believe this has the second best build quality after ipad) n5. Wifi connectivity is very prompt and throughput is impressive on my n-band wifi router. n6. Very good performance in gaming. (mind it gets heated up on very high end games like republique etc) n7. One of the factors most reviews dont mention is sound quality. Built in speakers are decent, But when you plug in headphones, This tablet produces amazing sound quality (I use flac songs). And definitely it has edge over samsung tablets. nnnNow jumping onto Hurdles\Cons: n1. There is no SIM facility. So, no Mobile calls or Internet through 3g is possible. (but note that using mobile data might have brought down this pad's amazing battery performance) .n2. It gets heated up exactly near camera side where processor is there when playing heavy graphic games (but that does not mean graphics are not good, Mi pad allows you to play all high end games without any trace of lag). Whle paying games like candy crush etc, it shows no heating issues. n3. This tablet box does not include any earphone so u might have to buy one if you don't have good pair yet.nnSummarizing, If you really need Mobile internet connectivity then you might be disappointed (note that you can always share internet via wifi-hotspot from any decent android phone you have). leaaving just that, This is by far the best all round performance Tablet in the market, And you will be blown away by its display, touch and Battery back up. So be confident and go ahead with this tablet, it will impress you. And at the given price its a steal !!! ;). nnCaution: Please don't go with Asus or Samsung tablets, if you are ok with wifi conectivity alone, MI Pad is leaps and bounds better than them and way cheaper too. PLEASE GIVE A LIKE if you find my review helpful.
Xiaomi Mi Pad has the best hardware for price.Coming from a Nexus 7 2013 32GB (see my review there too!) and HTC One M8 I had my benchmarks set high for this.The processor,GPU,display,speakers and overall build are much beyond this price range.But I personally didn't like MIUI much, though your opinion may vary.nProsn1.Great hardware insiden2.Superb Display and Touchn3.Decent buildn4.Appropriate size(at least from my pov)n5.PRICING!(No competitor comes close)n6.MicroSD(I hate 8/16gb devices without cards, they are just too constrained!) n7.Great speakers(even vs HTC One M8) , they outclass Nexus 7 2013n8.Decent camerasnConsn1.Slippery(get a case!)n2.MIUI drains lot of RAMn3.Slightly hefty(Heavier by 30gm than iPad mini Retina) nnThe display is simply gorgeous! I compared it side by side with my friend's iPad mini retina and found that Mi Pad equals if not betters the iPad mini retina display. The viewing angles, color reproduction and resolution(ditto as Retina!) are much better than what you expect from a budget device. n4:3 display of this has same aspect ratio(aka squariness!)as iPads or old CRT TVs.It's great for browsing, reading eBooks & PDF(college needs),and viewing slideshows. This is the FIRST android device that I found to be FULLY capable of browsing desktop sites. nFor movie buffs this or even any iPad ain't the solution,4:3 is odd for that.16:10 tablets like Nexus 7 2013 or larger one's make more sense. But I'm a reading,browsing and gaming guy , so that won't bother much. nNow, in gaming it is simply a beast! It blows my HTC One M8 and Nexus 2013(now dead) out of water.I tried GTA Vice City at max graphics and wow! No lag no drop frames ..that's unbeatable. All thanks to desktop grade keplar graphics. nI applied tempered glass on it(lesson from broken Nexus 7 2013) and the capacitive keys were rendered useless.To enable On Screen buttons, I tried rooting MIUI but failed even after using developer ROM and 2-3 different techniques given on MIUI site ,XDA and others. So I got Cyanogen Mod 11 ROM for it and that resolved all my worries. It runs amazingly well now, in fact better than Nexus or One M8. nTo sum it up, do the following if you want maximum utility of Mi Pad(* for pro users)n*get CM11(ALL apps are now directly intallable via playstore)nMicrosoft office(3 separate apps)nGoogle KeepnGoogle Keyboardn*Ideal Theme X(if you are on Cyanogen) nThanks for going through! Hit like if I helped you nnEDIT;nMy friend bought this after cancelling his order for iPad mini retina when he compared this side by side the retina mini! Saving 10-12k is more sensible than getting an Apple logo on back!My tablet is holding up really well after all these days and is still a beast.Everything loads up really fast!
