Over at TECHTablets: Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 Unboxing And First Impressions.
But there’s a separate long video review. See it after the break.
And from a different source, a hype (not review) video (apparently ripped from China) for the Windows 10 version yet to go on sale (as noted earlier, Windows 10 for it is still in beta!):
I have to admit I’m curious about the Windows 10 version despite the lack of microSD card slot. What other iPad Mini clone is there for Windows 10 from a China brand that isn’t crap? Um, that answer is none.
Anyone interested in the Android version should note the disappointing quality of the camera and microphone …
… which is bound to be even worse with the Windows 10 version of the tablet.
Xiaomi should be ashamed that the camera and microphone are superior in their Redmi Note 3:
Of the four iPad Mini clone Android tablets, I’d rank them in this order:
1) Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0
2) Xiaomi MiPad 2 16GB Android version
3) Asus ZenPad S 8.0 (both versions)
4) Insignia Flex Elite 7.85
Why does Asus come in behind Xiaomi?
1) No retail presence (gone from Best Buy)
2) A failure to hype the “Pro/Plus” version of the tablet
3) Dicking around with the screen display by “sharpening” it
4) Lack of sales push indicates these tablets are one-offs due to be quickly abandoned
I’d actually move the Insignia Flex Elite 7.85 to the number 3 spot if Best Buy was to price it at its actual dollar value: US$99 (its toy cameras really devalue it!). They seem unwilling to do so despite the lack of sales.
Anyway, I wait to see reviews of the Windows 10 version of the MiPad 2. But I expect to cringe at them.
