I’ve just finished my Mi Pad 2 review video, I have to say I’m impressed with this tablet. Xiaomi’s quality is unmatched for this price range. I’ve already seen this with their mobile phones I have reviewed. The Mi Pad 2 is no exception, the build with its metal unibody, fully laminated display matches even Apple’s iPad Mini offerings. Here’s the review.
It’s a long one so skip to the part that interests you if you don’t want to sit through it all!

Well, it’s not a perfect tablet (No tablet is) It’s missing a MicroSD card slot and HDMI out. In theory, I should have HDMI out via the Type-C port, but my two adapters don’t seem to work. Apart from this, it’s a damn good 7.9″ tablet. I wish I reviewed the first model, but never got around to it.
I’ll do my best to get hold of the Windows 10 version and one of the first things I’ll do is check to see if video out works. And if there is any throttling, in Android I saw temperatures reach 65 max when gaming, which makes me think Windows will be another story altogether, since they always run the chips hotter for some reason.
