Hey guys, what’s up, this is the full review of the Xiaomi Mipad 2. It’s aimed directly at the iPad Mini 4, and costs just 1/2 the price. With a new Cherry Trail processor, a retina display, and premium build quality, you’re getting a ton of stuff for just $200. However, no device is perfect, so continue watching for the good and the bad of the Xiaomi Mipad 2. You can get it fromGearbest . Continue reading after the break!
|7.9″ 2048×1536 IPS Display||Intel Atom Cherry Trail Z5-X8500 Quad Core 1.33GHz|
|2GB RAM + 16GB ROM||8MP + 5MP Camera|
|Android 5.1 Lollipop||Bluetooth, MicroHDMI, MicroUSB 3.0|
|333g, 204mm x 132.6mm x 0.69mm|
The 4:3 aspect ratio here makes the tablet wider than other 16:10 tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, so it’s a little more challenging to hold in one hand, but not difficult. It’s also really thin at 7mm, though not as thin as the 6mm iPad Mini 4.
All the buttons are located on the right side, the MicroUSB type C port is on the bottom and the headphone jack is on the top. And unlike the Mipad 1, there is no MicroSD card slot, and which I feel is a mistake.
The metal back is very nice to hold and gives this tablet a real premium feel, I’m really happy they chose metal instead of plastic like the Mipad 1. The back of the tablet is also very simple, with the rear camera, the MI logo and dual speakers.
So to summarize the build quality, great materials, great size, good feel in hand, and a really simple and clean asthetic. Are there any downsides? Well, if you wanna pass this off as an iPad, you’ll have to scrape off the MI logo.
