With its Pad 5, Xiaomi offers a very balanced tablet that is shaking up the Android tablet market. Today, its version with 256 GB loses 85 euros of its price to be displayed at a more attractive price.
Omnipresent on the smartphone market, Xiaomi remained discreet for the moment on the tablet market. The brand has remedied this by introducing its mid-range tablet: the Pad 5. The latter comes to kick in the anthill of Android tablets. It offers one of the most interesting value for money and is one of the most obvious choices, especially with 85 euros discount for the 256 GB model.
What are the advantages of the Xiaomi Pad 5?
- A 120Hz WQHD+ display
- A powerful SoC: Snapdragon 860
- Solid autonomy
The Xiaomi Pad 5 with 256 GB is usually priced at 449.90 euros, but that’s without counting on Cdiscount which offers this model at 364 euros, or 85 euros in savings on the bill.

An attractive Android alternative
For its big comeback on the tablet market, Xiaomi is doing well by betting on a technical sheet worthy of a premium tablet, but without the price. It embeds a Snapdragon 860, itself supported by 6 GB of RAM. A powerful and particularly gifted chip for games. In our test, benchmarks even showed the Pad 5 to be more powerful than Samsung’s Galaxy S7 FE, yet offered at a considerably higher price.
To take full advantage of your games or video content, the tablet is based on an 11-inch LCD panel, displaying a WQHD+ definition of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. Result: it offers a good immersion on video content, especially since the tablet supports Dolby Vision (HDR) and Dolby Atmos to ensure a good audio experience. And if unfortunately, the screen is not OLED, it is still offered with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, for better fluidity. In addition, with Android 11 and the brand’s in-house interface, you will get an intuitive experience like on iOS.
Without too many compromises
Aesthetically, we are entitled to a neat design that is close to the high-end tablets of the Californian firm, with well rounded edges and thin borders around the screen. On the other hand for the photo, it will struggle to compete with the iPad which has the advantage of offering a LiDAR sensor. You will find a simple 13 megapixel main sensor on the back, as well as an 8 megapixel sensor on the front, sufficient for occasional video calls.
And so that you all have the pleasure of making calls with your loved ones, or browsing on your tablet, Xiaomi has integrated a large 8,720 mAh battery – enough to last the tablet for a good day or even two depending on your use. This remains in the average of the tablets on the market, where for example a 30-minute game of Fortnite will only make you lose 7%. Recharging is done via its USB-C port, but don’t rely too much on speed, as it will take just over two hours to be at 100%.
