Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Tablet Confirmed for Launch on June 25th

By Radu Iorga

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 has been in the “incoming” phase for a while now. It has received a bunch of leaks, certifications, specs and even a supposed picture at some point. Now it finally has a launch date: June 25th. Let’s see what we know about it.

The device is expected to debut alongside the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro and it’ll be a follow-up to the Mi Pad 3, which has yet to get an international launch. According to previous leaks, the Mi Pad 4 will feature the same 7.9 inch IPS LCD HD screen from the predecessor, with a 320 PPI density. There’s also sources saying it’ll inaugurate an 18:9 aspect, which is bizarre on a tablet.

The device has been 3C certified and it should come with dual band WiFi, Bluetooth and 5V/2A 10W charging. Fast charging is also on the table. It’ll have a Snapdragon 660 CPU, departing from the choice of MediaTek available on the predecessors. Also on board is a 6000 mAh battery, plus 4 GB of RAM or maybe more. The Mi Pad 4 doesn’t have a price yet, but I’ll be surprised if it goes past $300 or even $250.

Hopefully this time it gets an international release. It remains to be seen if it’s only an Android machine, or if it also gets a Windows version, like we saw on previous Mi Pads.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Alfawise 7.9 Inch Android Review

By Tim

This one appears to be an excellent 7.9 inch tablet with a super hi-res screen and excellent battery and touch screen performance.

This one comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets and as usual includes the usual nit-picky commentary, but that is good because when you are buying something you want to know all the pros and cons.

The basic specs are as follows:

  •   Android Version 6.0
  •  MTK8173 Quad Core 1.6GHz, up to 2.0GHz
  •  IMG GX6250 GPU
  •  Equipped with 7.9 inch Retina Screen with 2048 x 1536 Resolution
  •  4GB RAM 64GB ROM
  •  Dual Cameras for Photos and Face-to-face Chat
    8.0MP AF rear camera + 5.0MP front camera
  •  Dual Band 2.4GHz / 5.0GHz WiFi

This is a very decent tablet currently available on Gearbest for $207 but there is a coupon code for it and that is: ALFAWISETAB01. That code should reduce your price a bit although at $207 this one is still a good bargain.

So make sure to check out the entire TechTablets channel on YouTube and here is that video!

That is all for right now,

Tim

Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is Now Official, Comes With 7.9 inch Screen and Can be Purchased With Android or Windows 10

By Radu Iorga

mi pad 2 1

Xiaomi’s big event took place today and as expected (and teased) it brought us the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 tablet. The device is just as expected, a 7.9 incher with an iPad-like allure and some very appealing price tag options.

It’s been more than a year since the first Mi Pad debuted and this newcomer brings a 6.95 mm thick chassis, plus a 7.9 inch screen with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. Inside we find the Intel Atom X5-8500 CPU, a quad core unit clocked at 2.2 GHz and accompanied by 2 GB of RAM. There’s also a 6190 mAh battery in the mix, with fast charging, a main 8 megapixel camera and a front 5 MP shooter.

 

Xiaomi integrated here an USB Type C port, WiFi and a special blue light filter, that makes e-reading easier on the eyes. The Mi Pad 2 weighs 320 grams and it resembles the iPad Mini 4 in format. The best part about it is that the slate can be purchased either with Android 5.1 Lollipop or Windows 10. The 16 GB Android 5.1 model goes for $156, while the 64 GB one with Android gets to $203. Also $203 is the Windows 10 + 64 GB unit.

Xiaomi Teases Mi Pad 2 Tablet Ahead of November 24th Announcement

By Radu Iorga

xiaomi mi pad 2 teaser

Xiaomi has a big event on November 24th, that has been speculated by many as associated to the Redmi Note 2 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi 5. In fact the biggest unveiling is the one of the slate Xiaomi Mi Pad 2, that got teased today.

Xiaomi President Lin Bin posted the teaser above, that shows a mere corner of the next Mi Pad tablet. This device has been a topic of rumors ever since December last year, so it’s been a long time coming. Judging by the picture, it’s a slim unibody metal tablet, with a design that makes it look like a skinnier Nokia N1 of sorts.

It has a main camera without a flash, but with a microphone next to it and another mic at the top of the back. We don’t have a clear specs list, but judging by the leaks, the Mi Pad 2 will have an Intel chipset, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. The screen is expected to be a 7.9 inch affair, with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, just like the original Mi Pad.

Nokia N1 Review: Best Compact Android Tablet for the Money Right Now, a Pleasant Software Experience (Video)

By James A.

Nokia-N1_050

Nokia N1 is the first Android tablet from the Finnish Nokia and the first Nokia hardware product after they sold Nokia Devices to Microsoft. Unveiled in November 2014, this was the first USB Type C device and it reached China in January this year. There it was sold record numbers in 4 consecutive flash sales. Nokia N1 reached Europe this Spring and it’s priced at around 314 euro there.

The design feels a bit like an iPad Mini, but less than one would think. The edges are a bit more rounded and the case is matte, plus there’s no shiny edge, unlike the iPad. The bezel is bigger for sure and the waistline is 6.9 mm, thinner than the iPad Mini 3 7.5 mm, but thicker than the iPad Mini 4 6.1 mm profile. The device is still pretty light, at 318 grams, lighter than the iPad Mini 3, at 331 grams.

The N1 has an unibody aluminum design and it’s very comfy and light, plus it provides a good grip. One hand use is quite easy here and this product is made by Foxconn, in case you’re wondering. The design is quite solid and elegant. Upfront we find the front camera and sensors, while at the back there’s the main camera and logo. The top features the Power button and microphone, as well as audio jack.

 

At the bottom there are the two speakers, flanking the USB Type C port, while on the left side there’s nothing at all. On the right side we’ve got the volume buttons, with good feedback. Overall, this is a well balanced design, comfier than the one of the iPad and offering rounded edges that are both elegant and make it easier to hold the device for long hours.

As far as the hardware goes, this model provides a 7.9 inch IPS LCD display, with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, plus a quad core Intel Atom Z3580 2.3 GHz processor (64 bit). Other specs include 2 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, at 800 MHz, a PowerVR G6430 533 MHz GPU, 32 GB of storage and an 8 megapixel main camera, as well as a front 5 MP shooter. On the connectivity side, there’s WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual channel with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0, USB Type C (reversible) and other features include two 0.5 W speakers, a microphone and a 6 axis gyro, plus an accelerometer.

Nokia-N1_030

The battery is a 18.5 Whr unit/5300 mAh, a Li-Po power source with 3.7 V to offer. In our test, which means HD video playback in a loop with WiFi on and brightness at 50%, we reached 8 hours and 32 minutes, which is good, but the rivals are much better. The iPad Mini Retina for example offers 10 hours and 8 minutes of playback, while the Xiaomi Mi Pad provides 10 hours and the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 reaches as much as 13 hours and 33 minutes.

Still, we beat the LG G Pad 8.3, with its 7 hours and 40 minutes. In PCMark, the continuous usage test simulation, we got to 7 hours, which beats the Xiaomi Mi Pad and its 6 hours and 28 minutes. We also beat the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, that only offered 4 hours and 43 minutes in this test. This is a very good work time, by the way. Charging takes kind of long, 3 hours and 52 minutes, even longer than the iPad Mini Retina’s 3 hours and 40 minutes, or the Mi Pad’s 2 hours and 30 minutes.

The Tab S 8.4 charge in 3 hours. In the Settings area you’ll find the Battery Saver option, that limits vibration, background traffic and CPU performance, as well as connectivity. You can also choose what percentage to turn it on at. Overall, the battery is good, but the long charge is a bit of a bummer. On the audio side we’re greeted by two 0.5 W speakers, high quality audio codecs and Wolfson technology.

On paper this device should offer 90 dB and no distortion, according to Nokia. Play Music is the player of choice here, with a stock EQ, that offers 5 custom channels, genre options and bass boost, as well as surround. The listening experience is loud, clear, without distortion and there’s a good bass, deep and warm sound, plus no muffling in landscape. The decibelmeter test revealed a value of 89.8 dBA, which is very loud for a tablet.

Nokia-N1_021

We beat the Xiaomi Mi Pad and it’s 84.2 dBA, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and its 84.5 dBA, plus the iPad Air 2 and its 86.3 dBA. This is one of the loudest tablets ever and it has excellent acoustics. Now let’s see what the display offers. This is a 7.9 inch screen with a 4:3 aspect, 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution and an IPS LCD panel with LED backlight. It also has Gorilla Glass 3 protection and it’s fully laminated.

This is a zero gap display and the player we used for videos was the basic Photos app. The viewing experience was bright, view angles were wide and the colors were good, although a bit cold. The display is crisp and offers a so-so contrast, with a mediocre behaviour in sunlight. It’s also a bit on the reflective side. Pixels are of the RGB Stripe kind here and the brightness we measured was 355 LUX, which is reasonably bright.

Nokia-N1_017

We scored below the iPad Mini Retina and its 412 LUX, but we beat the Xiaomi Mi Pad and its 310 LUX. We got beaten by the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and it 432 LUX, too, but we surpassed the iPad Air 2 by 1 lux, at least. So overall, the screen is OK in our book. The Settings area includes Light Adaptive and Content Adaptive brightness, font size options and an Intel Smart video feature, that allows smoother video playback and enhanced color and …read more
