TechTablets: MiPad 2 With Windows 10 Benchmarks, Impressions

TECHTablets has a second video up now, with benchmarks and overall impressions.


Here’s the benchmark for the internal storage:


Other benchmarks are shown and I won’t reiterate them here.

Battery life is better than other Chinese eight-inch Windows 10 tablets he’s tried:


The Edge browser is smooth:


How dim the screen can become is particularly notable, being very good for reading in the dark:


A rare portrait view:


He’s suitably impressed with it but notes it lacks a microSD card slot, HDMI-out, and the USB-C port runs at USB 2.x speed.

There’s a post too: Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 Windows Unboxing and First impressions

A reminder that this would be the tablet’s price if Xiaomi were to sell it to Americans via their Mi dotcom site:


Don’t agree to the price the gouging middlemen want! Don’t encourage them. Without demand, they’ll have to drop their prices.

Also, my advice is to wait for the rumored dual-OS Android/Windows version. Perhaps Xiaomi will boost the RAM to 4GBs. The price will probably go higher (1499 or 1599 yuan?), but it’ll be worth it.

As a side note, this is the damn tablet Best Buy should be stocking, not that crap under their Insignia house brand and their OEM partner brand Digiland.

  1. No microSD?? I’ll pass.

    What is the best alternative then?
    Great blog by the way.

  3. Andres O says:* has a review of MiPad 2. Interesting quote from there: “Another feature: Windows 10 can be installed on the MiPad 2 (64 GB model). The user officially has to decide which operating system, Android or Windows, is to be used.”

    Does it mean that only one OS, not side by side.

    Cons: – no microsd support, screen’s color reproduction, 2 GB of RAM, no GPS, no NFC.
    Pros: battery is recharged via USB 3.1 standard(?), etc.

      There is a rumor of a dual-OS version of the tablet, but I wouldn’t count on it. It would be like other dual-OS tablets, Android or Windows running at one time, a reboot to switch OSes.
