Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 Review

Where To Buy

Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 review, sadly this tablet overall disappoints. Sure if has a fantastic screen, great sound and a very good premium build to it just like te Mi Pad 2. The thing is there isn’t really any reason to get this over say theĀ 64GB Mi Pad 2.

They improved the rear camera, increased the battery size a little. But the chipset is no upgrade and the ROM is far from stable resulting in a somewhat buggy and frustrating experience. The CPU is now ARM, no longer X86 so gone is Windows 10 support which the Mi Pad 2 has. Below is the video review:

Once the ROM matures and is finally stable I may just re-review this tablet if I have time, but at this point hold of if you must get the Mi Pad 3 wait until the firmware is stable or there is a stable global ROM.

Good

Bad

  • Expensive for the spec
  • Not a true upgrade over the Mi Pad 2
