Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, powerful Windows tablet for work
The 9.7-inch retina Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 tablet is running Windows 10 OS with an Intel Core M3 7Y30 chipset. It features 8 GB of DDR3 RAM and the optics department in Mi Pad 3 pairs a 16 MP rear camera with 8 MP front-facing camera, with 1080p video shooting capability, dual LED Flash and autofocus. With IPS capacitive touch screen with resolution 2048 x 1536 pixels and visible angle 178 degrees, it is one of the best we saw so far.
Xiaomi might equip the Mi Pad 3 with 8290 mAh battery capacity and superfast-charging feature. On contraty, iPad Mini 4 comes with 5,124mAh battery capacity and it's hard to expect it will sport a larger battery in its new incarnation. Likewise, the iPad Mini 2 arrives with 2GB of RAM and it's possible that its successor will come with 4 GB of RAM but not more, and that's another field where Xiaomi is a clear winner.
Talking about audio and video capabilities, you have on your disposal all well known video formats - 1080P, 720P, MP4, M4V, MKV, XVID, and ASF - while thanks to Windows 10 audio can be in MP3, WAV, AMR, FLAC, AAC, APE, and DSD format. That's more than enough for any audio/video task you can throw at it. For those of you who like static pictures more, we should say that the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 supports all usual format, BMP, JPG, GIF, and PNG.
The Mi Pad 3 features the new USB Type-C port with its transmission speed 10 times faster than the traditional USB2.0. Talking about sensors, you can count in hall sensor, gravity sensor, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, gesture sensor, e-compass... There is no doubt that the Mi Pad 3 is one of the best tablet currently available. If you are not a hard Apple fan, we recommend to take a look at it. Add to that Microsoft capabilities, and you have powerful tablet not just for games but for work too. ■
