Xiaomi Redmi Pad review

GSMArena Team, 19 October 2022.

Introduction

Marketed under the Redmi brand, Xiaomi's latest affordable tablet carries a simple name - it's just the Redmi Pad. Focusing on the fundamentals, the slab comes with a nice balance between core components - a high-refresh-rate display, sensible chipset choice, a big battery, and useful cameras.

The 10.61-inch IPS display (mind the 0.01") may not sound like much, but it has a standout feature for the class - a 90Hz refresh rate. The Mediatek Helio G99 chipset is decently powerful and frugal at the same time, and the 8,000mAh battery promises solid longevity. The 8MP resolution on both the front and rear cameras is a notch above the bare minimum (in a good way), and the wider-than-most lens on the selfie cam is most welcome too. The microSD slot, well-specced speaker system, and metal-clad body don't hurt either.

Xiaomi Redmi Pad unboxing

The Redmi Pad ships in the standard white cardboard box you'd get pretty much anything in these days. Inside, in addition to the tablet itself, you'll find a 22.5W charger (though the tablet itself is capped at 18W) and a USB-A-to-C cable.
