Xiaomi Pad 5 appeared on the Polish market. For the past two weeks I have had the opportunity to use it and can give my opinion. Is it worth buying? You will find out by reviewing.
Even a few years ago, many experts predicted that tablets would become as popular as smartphones. In retrospect, we know that didn’t happen. To say that these are niche devices is very unfair, but it is enough to track the market over the past 3-4 years to find out that many manufacturers treat tablets negligently. Individual companies released new models for sale, but they were not particularly loud initial shows, nor particularly impressive devices. For a long time, the only reasonable tablet on the market was the iPad in all possible versions from Mini to Pro.
However, it is impossible not to notice the hype in the tablet market, which began a few months ago and continues to this day. The new device showed several manufacturers, including the slightly forgotten HTC and realme, that are getting better and better. There is also a lot of talk about other devices that could come out of the Oppo or Vivo brand. Meanwhile, Xiaomi showed off its tablet. The Chinese company introduced two models – the Pad 5 and the Pad 5 Pro (It should be noted here that there is no “Mi” in the name of the devices). Unfortunately, the first one is only available in Poland, but is that really a reason to complain? I had the chance to test it before the premiere. Let’s check what the Xiaomi Pad 5 has to offer.
