Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 – premium 7.9-inch tablet with hexa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage and 13MP main camera

Greetings, LaptopMedia followers! It’s been a while since we last shared some good GearBest deals but now we are back again with something premium in mind.

This time we are presenting a tablet. Yes, we do know that the market for these devices has shrunk and there are not that many folks out there who are that eager to buy one. However, those who are looking for a tablet have high requirements. It is namely these customers that today’s device targets.

We are talking about the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 – a 7.9-inch tablet using a hexa-core MediaTek processor, display with QXGA resolution (2048 x 1536p), 4 GB of RAM and more. Curious to see what else this tablet has to offer? Read on then!

Design, Display and Camera

As one may guess from the title, Mi Pad 3 really looks premium. To be honest, its design is quite similar to that of contemporary Apple tablets. We have no complaints as to this, though. The device offers a slim metal construction and beautiful display. Starting from the back – it carries the main 13MP camera in the upper right corner, a delicate MI logo toward the bottom and grills for the dual-channel speakers below it. As for the top side – it only holds the 3.5 mm headphone jack, while the right profile offers a Power button and volume controls. Finally, the bottom carries a USB-C port which we heartily welcome.

Moving on to the front, we notice the beautiful 7.9-inch display (2048 x 1536 p) whose side bezels are really thin. Below it, you can find the three traditional buttons, which are not on-screen, and above it – the front facing 5MP camera. The latter should provide more than a decent quality for your video calls. Of course, the main 13MP camera will make you happy with higher resolution images and it boasts f/2.2 aperture and 1080 p video recording.

Hardware and Software

And let us have a quick look at what makes this machine tick. There are a number of commendable features, starting with the hexa-core processor by MediaTek, and it is accompanied by 4 GB of RAM (quite nice by today’s standards for such a device) and 64 GB of internal storage which is more than enough for your favorite songs, movies and apps.

To support all the components there is a quite reasonably sized 6600 mAh battery. It is claimed that it can ensure up to 12 hours of video playback – nice.
As far as software is concerned – we are dealing with the characteristic MIUI 8 OS which presents the user with an appealing user interface and many interesting apps.
