The Xiaomi pad 5 release date was on the August 10 of 2023, and with the upcoming Xiaomi Pad 5 pro that will be expected to release on the 24th of December 2023, we can see that the new Mi Pad 5 has become one of the choices for the better, premium choices of Pad. 

So, here we are going to review the specs of the Xiaomi pad 5 review, how they perform, and should you save up money for the newer Pad 5 Pro.

Our initial thoughts regarding the Pad 5 were that it is quite a powerful device, as it is powered by the Snapdragon 860 chipset, and the 6 Gb of Ram.

This device comes in with the great performing pad that is to be expected from the Xiaomi Pad. It also comes in with a smooth amazing display, for the premium price it offers. 


From its initial design, it has 511 grams weight for the Pad, and its body dimension is 254x166x6.8 mm of the body dimensions.

It has a glass front protected with Gorilla Glass, an aluminum back frame, and plastic back magnetic stylus supports. For the Pad 5 color, it offers the Cosmic Gray and Pearl white colors, but the color availability might be different between regions. 

For the Xiaomi Pad 5 pro that will come in later December, So far, there is not much difference from its initial design. 


The reason people buy Pad is mostly because of its widescreen display, comfortable to be used for work, and sometimes for gaming purposes.

The screen sizes of the Xiaomi Pad 5 come in with 11.0 inches of screen, with an 82.8% of screen body ratio. It has a maximum resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels with a maximum aspect ratio of 16:10. 

It has an IPS LCD screen display, bit weird since many of the pads and phones have already adapted to AMOLED screens, but still powerful. It offers a 120 Hz maximum refresh rate which is very nice, equipped with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. 


Even though the Xiaomi Pad 5 is a premium pad, the camera is a bit lackluster, although there aren’t many people who buy pads for the camera anyway.

The rear camera only offers one main camera with a 13 MP camera, and the front selfie camera could only go up to 8MP. It offers video capture of the 4K for up to 30 fps, and the 1080P of video for up to 30 fps.


The Xiaomi Pad 5 comes in with the Android 11 software, with the addition of MIUI 12.5. It is good enough to process the software and app faster, although when the upcoming Android 12 has been released, some people might think it wouldn’t be enough. Regardless, for the pad, Android 11 is good enough.


Based on the Xiaomi pad 5 specs, the Xiaomi Pad 5 performance is to be expected from the premium Pad.

It offers a fast processor of Octa-core, 2.96 Ghz of processors, and with the chipset of Qualcomm Snapdragon 860, one of the latest generations of the chipset. It is supported by the Adreno 640 GPU and comes with 6 GB of RAM plus 128 GB of ROM. 


The battery life of the Xiaomi Pad 5 comes in with 8720 battery life, a Non-removable battery, and fast charging of 33W. It comes in with the power delivery 3.0, a bit bummer because many have provided the power delivery of 4.0. 


The prices for the regular Xiaomi Pad 5 come in at RM799 to RM1,649
