iPads have always been the undisputed king when it comes to the tablet market for quite a while now. Apple dominated every aspect of the market from performance, and price points, to specs. Regardless, the Andriod tablet ecosystem has been catching up. Samsung, Oppo, Xiaomi, and Realme are producing some quality pieces of hardware.
In this article, you will learn about the specifications, price, and features of the OPPO Pad, Realme Pad, Xiaomi Mi Pad 5, and TCL Tab 10s tablet. Let’s dive in and see what the Android tablet market has to offer.
OPPO Pad, Realme Pad, Xiaomi Mi Pad 5, and TCL Tab 10s: Tablet Design and Build Quality
Depending on what you consider salient, these 4 Android tablets boast attractive designs, bigger displays, top specs, and plenty of unique features.
Both Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 and OPPO Pad come with a huge 11-inch screen and the base model with a base storage of 256GB and 6GB RAM for better performance. Oppo Pad has the biggest battery size in this lineup with an 8360mAh battery which should last you a full day if you aren’t a heavy user.
Realme Pad and TCL Tab 10s on the other hand has slightly smaller screen i.e. 10.4-inches and 10.1-inches respectively. Both pack an 18W wired fast charging with a 3.5mm jack port for the headsets. It is worth noting these two are among the top Andriod tablet that gives you the option of a sim card support. Most Tablet makers have tossed cellular connectivity but it’s worth knowing there are a few manufacturers that care about us.
The significance of a tablet has always been a larger display and bigger screens. Modern Andriod tablets have perfected the art of packing all the display features in their newer gadgets. With Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 and OPPO Pad, you will get a massive IPS LCD 11.0-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate which is ideal for gaming, and binge-watching Netflix. What gives a superior experience to any device is the operating system and the latest Andriod 11 together with MIUI 12.5 and ColorOS 12 gives you a perfect combination. Both tablets have fancy features like floating windows, keyboard support, pens, multitasking windows, and an anti-blue light filter to protect your eyes from bright light.
It is usually super awkward to use a camera on any tablet but still doesn’t negate the need to have a decent camera on your Tablet. The 13MP and 8MP camera setup on both Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 and OPPO Pad should do just fine for regular photography.
The 8MP ultrawide front camera on the Realme Pad should give better picture quality when doing zoom or an online meeting.
