I’ve updated the Mi Pad 2 Review to now include the Windows 10 model and benchmarks. The score hasn’t changed, despite its flaws, no MicroSD, USB 3 or HDMI* support. It’s easily the best (and most expensive) mini tablet out of China. The build is A-Class, the screen is fully laminated, super responsive and the cameras and sound are on of the best after my Surface Pro 4. Battery life isn’t bad either for this class, it beats all the other 7-8″ tablets I’ve tested so far. An all round decent tablet I can recommend.
If Xiaomi do release a Mi Pad 2 Pro or a Mi Pad 3 and fix the current things mentioned above, it would be an almost perfect tablet for those looking at a smaller iPad Mini 4 styled one.
I’m looking forward to the rumored Mi Pad 2 dual boot release coming in a month or so.
*Reason, I have yet to 100% confirm HDMI or DisplayLink does work. Windows looks to work with my Apple iPad multi-port hub. But a pop up in Windows 10 asks for a better USB connection for DisplayLink. So I can’t rule it out 100% as not working.
