At a time when smartphones are catching up with tablets on the diagonal of the display, and the market itself is not in the best condition, there are companies that continue to develop this direction. Xiaomi decided not to close the line of compact budget tablets and gave it a second wind.
In the fourth version, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Tablet PC received evolutionary rather than revolutionary changes. Of the most notable, we can single out the design, but otherwise, it is a fairly compromise device, which, however, will find its buyers.
The material used is aluminum and plastic. It is pleasant to hold: the case is “matte”, rough. This makes a rather big tablet more stingy. It will not slip out of your hand, although it weighs a noticeable 340 grams. The controls repeat the concept of Xiaomi smartphones: between the pair of speakers at the bottom is a USB Type-C port, a headphone jack at the top, power and a swing to the right, and the left side panel carries only a memory card tray.
The aluminum case, besides attractive appearance, differs in ease, reliability, and durability. Sandblasting technology has been used to polish the case, thereby preserving the metallic texture and no fingerprints on the case. Aspect ratio 16:10 allows you to hold. Or a combo tray for microSD and flash cards with LTE support. This version is also there and is a bit more expensive.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Tablet PC has got a beautiful modern 8.0 inches FHD screen with a resolution of 1920×1200 and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The display makes the image “live” and bright, providing a very comfortable work when watching videos, photos or web pages. For convenience, the screen can be divided into several parts to watch a movie and simultaneously correspond in your favorite messenger.
For maximum performance, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 received a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, which uses an 8-core processor on the Kryo 260 cores. The maximum operating frequency is 2.2 GHz, which, together with the Adreno 512 video chip, is easy to cope with any games and applications. Adreno 512 graphics core allows you to record and playback video with 4K resolution (3840 by 2160 pixels), easily processing Full HD video with a frame rate of up to 60 frames/second.
The Snapdragon 660 chipset has all modern interfaces: USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac dual-band, etc. The younger version of the Mi Pad 4 is equipped with 3/32 GB of memory. The older and LTE-modification are equipped with 4 GB of operational and 64 GB constant.
