B. Performance

The Xiaomi Pad 5 is powered by the Snapdragon 860, which is a fairly average processor. With an Antutu score of 500,000, it is capable of handling your daily tasks without lag. However, recent user reports indicate that the performance of the Xiaomi Pad 5 has become sluggish. We also own a Xiaomi Pad 5 and can attest to this. While the performance hasn’t significantly degraded, basic actions such as swiping up or toggling between apps now feel sluggish. We’re unsure whether this is a deliberate move by the MIUI software, possibly underclocking the CPU.

On the other hand, the Xiaomi Pad 6 features the Snapdragon 860, which is worth mentioning despite being a 2-year-old processor. It is considered one of the greatest Snapdragon processors ever made, with an Antutu score of up to 700,000.

The Not So Good Part about Xiaomi Pad 6.

1. Processor and avability

In certain countries, only the Xiaomi Pad 6 is released, which limits you to the Snapdragon 870 processor that it comes with. If we talk about the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro variant, which features the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen One and an amazing camera sensor, you’re out of luck, my friend. However, we can’t complain about the Snapdragon 870 because we have another variant with a superior processor, but unfortunately, it’s not available worldwide. Even in India, they have only released a base variant with limited storage capacity.

2. Battery Life:

The battery capacity remains almost unchanged, but we have observed that it is quite sufficient for an Android device with the Snapdragon 870 chipset, which is highly power-efficient and ensures smooth performance without any lag or stuttering. However, some high-end games may not perform optimally. When using the device for entertainment purposes, you can expect it to last for many hours before running out of battery. The included charger has a power output of 33 watts, but if you have the compatible 120-watt charger that comes with the Xiaomi 13 Pro, you can use it to rapidly charge the tablet. In a nutshell, the Xiaomi Pad 6 supports both a 67-watt charger and a 120-watt charger, enabling rapid charging.
