Build Quality

In my opinion, an 8″ tablet is the perfect size for a tablet. Easy to hold in one hand and big enough to consume media. It’s really light for a metal tablet, just a hair over 300 grams.

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.

The front of the tablet is simple. You find the front facing camera, notification light and MI logo up top.

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.
