XIAOMI MI PAD 4 PLUS SPECIFICATIONS
This device is made of almost metal body but there is also little bit of plastic around the screen and on the top of the back panel for the LTE signal. While holding this device, it does feel a high-end device. The bezels are very slim which is a trend these days.
This device is 7.9 millimetre thin and it weighs 485 grams which is nice according to the price of the device. However, the device is well build and it feels a real high-end tablet because of it’s metal body.
The power and the volume buttons are on the right side. On the left side of the device, you get to see micro SD slot and sim card slot. Microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack is placed at the top of the device. On the bottom of the device, you get to see USB Type-C port, microphone, and two speakers. There is also a physical button just below the display and it also works as the fingerprint scanner as well.
It comes with 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. This is a nice screen and it maxes out at 460 nits, so it is bright enough to use the device in indoors or even in outdoor lightning conditions but not in direct sunlight.
It’s not only bright enough but it’s also sharp as well. As the side-bezels on this device are little slim. The display looks really nice and it’s really fun to watch movies on this device. As I mentioned movies, it makes me sad as there is no HD support on Netflix.
The color on this display looks very good and if you want, you can also do some tweaking by just simply going in to the display settings.
HARDWARE & PERFORMANCE
The hardware of this device is Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and it has 4 GB RAM. There is also option for 64 GB or 128 GB memory and all the variants has got 4GB RAM. The processor here is a mid-range but it is good to play some high graphics games like PUBG.
Now, I tried doing some multitasking and it is working perfectly. The touch response of this tablet is really nice and apps like YouTube and chrome works perfectly fine. This tablet is also very nice for priductivity.
You can also do some photo editing work in apps like Adobe lightroom and I was perfectly able to edit photos without any issues. But if you want to do video editing then I would recommend get a little high end device than this.
Games like PUBG runs smoothly without any lags or stutters. I would like to mention that I played this game in full graphics and high frame rate as well. Overall, this is a great device which for day to day use, gaming, photo editing, multi-tasking, and things like that.
CAMERA & BATTERY
We get to see a 13 MP main camera and 5 MP front facing camera. Now the image quality is good enough but it’s not that great. You should expect decent quality photo in day light. These camera’s are good, if you want to take some quick photos of some documents or even video quality. There is also face recognition feature available here, but it is not as secure as the fingerprint scanner.
The battery of this device is 8620 mAh which is massive. In my battery test, I was able to get 17 hours of screen on time in a single charge which is absolutely amazing. However, it takes almost 4 hours to charge from 0 to 100%.
This device is really amazing considering the price of the device. The biggest highlight of the device is the battery life which is outstanding and there is no doubt in it. Now, the battery life would not be of any use if the performance and display is not good, but thankfully both performance and display is good enough and also you can play PUBG without any stutters or lags which is really good in this price range. But the speakers here are the weak point of these device as they didn’t give nice audio experience. However, we also fingerprint scanner which is kind of nice and secure as well. So you can buy this device without any worries.
