Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 review
Now Xiaomi’s fourth-generation Mi Pad series. The8-inch Android tablet has three options: 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage or the second option, with modules LTE and GPS too.
A Qualcomm Kyro 260 CPU and a Qualcomm Adreno 512 GPU are both integrated and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. In addition, the Mi Pad four comes with 13 MP rear façade and 8 MP front-facing cameras, the latter is equipped with AI technology for the release of the unit. The Mi Pad 4 is the first smartphone to support this feature in the Mi Pad series.
Case of tablet
The Mi Pad 4 comes in white or black and weighs 342 g (~12 oz) in black and or gold. The app is particularly ideal for an inexpensive mid-range tablet and makes a good first visual impression.
On the right side of the device, you consider the power button and the volume rocker as the only hardware keys. The buttons are well pressed and are securely in the frame of the computer. The Mi Pad 4 is impressive with its case construction and suits many of its most expensive rivals.
The display is made of rubbed-proof glass that dissolves smoothly into the metal frame of the unit. While the Mi Pad 4 has relatively small bezels, it holds the large bezels at the top and bottom of many other Android tablets. Those two bezels lead mainly to a 77% screen-to-body ratio which is pretty low according to conventional smartphone norms.
Our review unit has 64 GB of eMMC 5.1, which remains 51 GB once the OS is enabled. In case you need more room the Mi Pad 4 supports microSD card expansion. Otherwise, the Mi Pad 4 Plus with up to 128 GB of storage is available.
In addition, for the temporary additional store, you may attach a memory stick through the USB Type-C port. Nonetheless, an adapter will be needed because Xiaomi does not have a Type-C adapter with the Mi Pad 4. Additionally, if you have the correct type-C adapter, you may also attach other peripherals, such as external keyboards or mice.
The Mi Pad 4 supports Miracast screen sharing that performed well in our tests.
The Mi Pad four ships MIUI 9, an Android Oreo 8.1 version customized by Xiaomi. With the security patch level 1 of August 2018 and 188.8.131.52 BETA edition of MIUI, we had already seen this last one running on Xiaomi Mi 6X and Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, our test system was pre-installed. The Xiaomi BETA version also includes an upgrade to MIUI 10.
MIUI is a version of Android that is highly personalized, with an IT look like iOS rather than Android stock. The MIUI 9 presents its predecessor with a wealth of new settings and visual improvements.
Our test device runs a Chinese ROM, meaning that there are no pre-installed Google applications or services; so there’s no Google Play Store. Xiaomi pre-installs Chinese and Xiaomi equivalent applications, but at the time of writing, no global Mi Pad 4 ROMs had been available. It means that you only have certain restrictions on the computer in Chinese or English.
For devices without Google Services, you can purchase a Mi Pad 4 that runs a Chinish ROM, refer to our guide on installs of the Google Play Store.
Although photography tablets are seldom used since most people already possess a smartphone with better camera sensors, a Mi Pad 4 has a rear-facing camera of 13 MP should you need them. Xiaomi equipped the machine with Omnivision’s OV13855 PureCelPlus sensor.
The sensor has an image stabilization of 1.10 μm and a relatively bright f/2.0 aperture. The absence of stabilization makes it hard to take images entirely blurred. Photo sharpness inappropriate lighting is generally good, but images do not show a lot of clarity. Usually, the colors are translucent as well. The camera faces back with a good high dynamic range so that the images can reflect various luminosity areas. Sadly, even in good lighting conditions, there is some picture noise, which in low light worsens considerably.
A frontal camera screen is typically more used than its rear-facing camera. It makes sense that the Mi Pad 4 would look better than the back one, but Xiaomi clearly thinks differently. It would also make sense that A 5 MP Samsung Isocell sensor with an F/2.0 aperture is supported on the test device.
The sensor is nice enough for video calls and sometimes selfies, but there is a little lack of exposure and sharpness. In comparison, the color replay is much paler than the rear face camera does.
The Mi Pad 4 is able to capture videos of 30 FPS in up to 1.920x 1.080. The sound quality is perfect, but the reproduction of the color is as bland as with the images.
The Mi Pad 4 has a 920×1.2 native resolution IPS display and 283 PPI pixel density. Our test device is 83% uniformly white, according to X-Rite i1Pro2; this is about 10% lower than most of our equipment.
So big color blocks seem less uniformly lit than our Huawei-made equipment for comparison, but the differences are so low that we doubt that many people will notice the difference in practical terms. The Mi Pad 4 also has an ambient light sensor, so that the device can automatically adjust the light display according to ambient lights.
The Mi Pad 4 is fitted with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC which integrates a Kyro 260 CPU, an octa-core and a Qualcomm Adreno 512 GPU. On the remaining four power-saving cores, the CPU will reach up to 2,2 GHz between four output cores and 1,8 GHz. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 is manufactured on 14 nm FinFET processes which significantly increases the energy efficiency of the chip compared to the Snapdragon 625, the previous chip. The GPU can also clock 650 MHz.
The LPDDR4 dual-channel RAM system also includes 4 GB of our test equipment to easily load systems and keep animations running. We noticed a certain degree of microtuberance and we were lagging when running intensive applications.
A surprisingly good, high-preis-to-performance tablet was developed by Xiaomi. The Mi Pad 4 is a budget laptop, which impressed us with its mid-range hardware during testing.
The Mi Pad 4 competes in terms of battery life, power and the quality of its handicraft on the same level as its much more expensive Huawei competitors. Xiaomi even has a faster Wi-Fi module than all of our comparison equipment.
Nonetheless, certain apps like poor face unlocking ruin the overall experience. The monitor also has relatively poor contrast and a better camera. The missed opportunity seems too of a fingerprint scanner and NFC.
Finally, the Mi Pad 4 supports only the Chinese version of MIUI at the time of writing, and the LTE edition does not support LTE band 20, widely used across Europe.
