Tablet Xiaomi MiPad is one of the first gadgets on the market with the new chip Tegra K1, worth getting to know him better.
Packing and equipment
The users who are familiar with the products of Xiaomi, box MiPad present no any surprises. All the same hard cardboard design flat rectangle. The entire structure is designed with an emphasis on the strength of the frame, so that the parcel has withstood all the hardships in transit.
On the back side are brief specifications.
Hero review covers a total area of interior space and covered with a protective film, equipped with latch for easy removal apparatus. Hidden compartment under it with accessories.
- Charger (5V, 2A);
- Cable microUSB;
- Instruction with a paper clip.
There is nothing unusual, traditionally a manufacturer does not spoil their customers with additional accessories, so as not to increase the cost of the device. On the other hand, the official website you can always find a bunch of extra items that stimulates sales.
Appearance and design
Of course, speaking at the beginning of “his vision” of the tablet, not without some guile. If Apple iPad mini Retina version would be «C» in plastic, then MiPad could be called a clone of one hundred percent of this unit. On the one hand, you can sarcastically clicked his tongue, on the other – only enough to copy a good gadget, it is necessary also to consider the little things.
We have before us a tablet with rounded edges and smooth contours rear surface.
For a half years that have passed since the release of the original, users had become accustomed to such a design. It can even be called clean as the eye there is nothing to cling to.
At the edge of the front surface of the main body is the stroke, the rest surface covered with a protective glass with oleophobic coating. Off the edge of the screen to find the housing is not a problem. Yet a small air gap in the display is.
In the upper left corner is the logo of the company seems to have not mixed. The center of the eye is visible in the front of the camera. Between it and the logo can be considered a light sensor, and a little to the right – an indicator of missed messages.
LED lit dimly, the angles can and do miss flashing lights. In the settings of the system provided the item is responsible for the nomination of color, which will glow diode for incoming notifications.
The machine uses hardware touch buttons control system, it is a striking contrast to the majority of android-tablets. Location of atypical: “Recent Apps”, “Home”, “Back”. The middle button is decorated to match the corresponding element in the model of Apple.
elements are illuminated brightly, though in sleep mode devoid of visual design. Pressing accompanied by pleasant vibration, any problems with the responsiveness from the touch pad is not.
On the back of the eye is the main camera, framed by a metal ring, which acts as a visual ornament and a small serving of protection.
Next to it is possible to detect the opening of a microphone, and you can see the side of another. Such a close location a bit unusual, it would be logical to place a second microphone somewhere on the front side. But the bottom-set member is not necessary because there are arranged in stereo speakers hidden behind the perforation.
On the left side you can see the slot for microSD card, made in an uncharacteristic performance. Plastic basket firmly holding the carrier, the probability of jamming during such a construction is extremely small.
The right side has placed the physical elements: volume rocker and power button / unlock. Plastic buttons protrude slightly above the surface and have a clear way, to press requires little physical impact.
The top side is 3.5 mm jack for connecting a wired headset.
At the bottom end alone fit out microUSB.
On the one hand, the choice of the aspect ratio of 4: 3 may be perceived negatively, especially if you are fond of watching movies on the road. Overall, however, this proportion, in my opinion, it is optimally suited for tablets. Due to the thin frames, upright device may well be hard to keep even a small hand, although a special need in this.
By reducing the side members, the tablet Xiaomi aesthetically pleasing, with a total ergonomics is not affected. Surface dimensions, namely 135.4 to 202.1 mm, feels like it should be. Of course, if the tablet is more elongated on the aspect ratio, it would be better suited to hold his hand, but it would be appropriate with respect to smartphones. A tablet, anyway, use two hands. Thickness of the device is 8.5 mm. Due to their smooth forms unit fits the palm of even weight.
As a gadget for daily use Xiaomi MiPad I liked. It is worth noting that some of this and some of the other reviews written from him, and on the go. The main drawback in that case are touch buttons. In the upright position, they do not cause problems, but with a horizontal orientation, especially in active games can often be accidentally pressed. However, the system supports them off after a string of notification.
To the assembly have a couple of complaints. In my case, at certain places there was punching the edges of the glass inside the body. This is not critical, since in normal use of the tablet is not felt. The bottom surface of the cover when you hear a characteristic bursting creak, but the daily work of encounter with him I had no chance. But these points are specific to the model and the overall feel of use do not affect.
The rear surface is made of plastic, which is similar to that used in the iPhone 5c. Material specific. In my hands, he is confident, not slipping in the hands even at steep angles. But a colleague feelings were opposed because the device still slid. But from the standpoint of wear resistance to the surface of questions asked. Gadget if you can damage, then only on a good fall. Scratches easily placed, but without careful look hard to spot them.
In review arrived in a white version of the performance, in addition it is available and several different colors: yellow, pink, black, green and blue.
It is true that at the moment it is planned to separate colors depending on network support LTE.
