    This one time my friend's phone broke so he just move his sim card and install all necessary app on his tablet and bring it until his phone is repaired.
    And having a small, easy to bring device that can play multimedia is definitely useful.

          There'll only be a few takers if Xiaomi mi pad lite with 860 loses 4G connectivity. A worthy processor without 4G connectivity is useless.

              Is the size already fixed/confirmed ?
              Why do they make 3 models with the same sizes ?
              Me personally, planning to get the biggest tablet if it's significantly bigger than their latest tablet (I got mi pad 4 plus). And I'm pretty sure that some people wanted a smaller tablet too.

                    Lol please, a phone can also be a multimedia device and a tablet can also be a communication device. Just because you don't do it doesn't mean others don't.

                            meanwhile huawei and xiaomi are just in it for bragging rights
                            this isn't a laptop where you can just copy the macbook design, slap windows on it and call it a day, lol (*cough* redmibook and matebook *cough*)

                            it would make sense if xiaomi and huawei were making this for media consumption but it looks like they're trying to market it as a productivity tool roflmao 🤣 can't wait to see how buggy miui and zero apps stack up with the ipad or even against DeX and Samsung's special deals with clip studio along with their note taking app

                              Berserker, 31 Jul 2021PHONE IS A COMMUNICATION DEVICE. TABLET IS A MULTIMEDIA DE... moreYou're right.
                              Imagine keeping a tablet on your face for a phone call, it just doesn't make sense, although I'd agree there are alternatives like using Bluetooth. Still, if it has 5G component, telephony possibility should not hurt anyone.

                              ---
                              Did anyone notice there's no model with Snapdragon 888? It seems manufacturers are clear that using 888 without a good cooling system isn't much productive.
                              And where's Qualcomm's own phone, which was out to set a case point about the 888's potential?

                                  The Apple iPad is a gateway drug into the Apple ecosystem. It has great specs and actually is pretty good value for money - probably the only Apple product that is, other than Apple TV maybe.

                                  Still I wouldn't buy one. I'd get a WiFi only variant of one of these most likely. I have an old Samsung 10 incher from 2017 and it is a bit laggy, but fine for browsing and youtube - just about.

                                  Regardless, every tablet I have ever used basically lived in my house and stayed on WiFi.

                                  Maybe some other people do drag them around with them, but they are certainly a minority. Most people don't want to drag almost a kilo of tablet around with them unless required to do so for specific professions etc. - and even then, most of those people will just go all-in and carry a full, thin, laptop around for full productivity and be done with it.

                                  I think most people would sacrifice a SIM card for better features in other categories like screen, CPU, and storage.

                                  Come to think of it, when was the last time anyone of you used the rear 'main' camera of a tablet for anything? The tablet is never on you when you do interesting things anyway and it is too big and heavy to use comfortably as a camera usually.

                                  The front one is much more important because of video calls. The rear camera is almost always redundant so I would take a downgrade there as well if it meant better specs elsewhere or a lower price.

                                    where are you donna put your tablet when you are at work, or doing sport?
                                    how can couple of people watching a movie on a phone without struggling to see anything on a such a small screen and tiny speakers.
                                    and why apple still sells the ipad?
                                    for the same reason why mcdonald's have a bunch on burgers and not only one on the menu?
                                    making money only fron one or two products is a risky business.

If you really think it's not the majority, why does Apple still make the iPad and still one of the preferred choices for tablets? People could have just bought the iPhone and not bothered with the tablet at all.

                                        But then again all these Mi tablets have been affordable prices in the past under 400 euro.
                                        If i look Poco X3 Pro that is with SD860 and cost only 229 Euro in my country then the tablet should be around same price
