Realme Pad X review

GSMArena Team, 20 October 2022.

Introduction and specs

With the unexpected surge in tablet demand after the pandemic hit, smartphone makers were bound to try their luck once again in a once thought to be a dying market segment. Realme is no exception, and its latest offering is the Realme Pad X. It seems like a productivity-oriented solution for the masses, but unfortunately, it's an India-only device. And we mean that in the best possible way - it's a shame such a great looking tablet is not available globally. Read on to see why.

Realme Pad X sports a relatively big 10.95-inch display, and a relatively powerful Snapdragon 695 SoC for everyday tasks and multitasking. Realme offers a pressure-sensitive stylus and a magnetic keyboard to go with it. So if you don't need a fully-fledged laptop, then the Realme Pad X is a very plausible solution.

In addition to the said hardware, the Pad X draws power from a quite large 8.340 mAh battery, promising lots of hours of autonomy. The big battery is supplemented with a 33W fast Dart Charge.

In case you need connection at all times, the Pad X is also offered as a cellular model - with 5G, mind you, which also has a GPS receiver - a rare feature on a midrange tablet.

Despite its relatively affordable price tag, the Realme Pad X offers a premium build, although it feels kind of hefty in hand. Some users will definitely find that attractive as this feature is often perceived as a proof of high-quality build.

Snapdragon and 5G worth the price different

Single core score in ad 695 is better than sd 845, there is huge perfomance gape between cortex A78 and A75, 845 has better gpu.
