Just found out this website super useful as it might help a bit on decisions to choose your tablet (budget, cores, etc)

Is the playstore pre installed on the mi4, I have a Xiaomi phone and had to load the playstore APK on it, it's a bit of a pain to be honest, have just updated to a new Xiaomi mobile but this has pure android with no loaded garbage, much prefer it to the original one, it was also painful trying to transfer all my data to the new one, but the mi pad sounds like a nice piece of kit and I really only want it for basic browsing and video watching etc.

think that he means the original one

pros -
good ram and storage
cpu is decent enough
good size for reading books/ newspapers

cons-
aspect ratio of screen will give you a letterbox effect on video (black at top and bottom)
screen is not fully laminated (gap between screen and glass which means that there can be a reflection especially if outside)
speaker is not great

neutral
battery life of 7 hours is OK


this one for 20 more has a better aspect ratio and fully laminated screen (no air gap) that is brighter and better battery life (8-10 hours). similar specs otherwise.
https://www.geekbuying.com/item/Tecl...er-391944.html

also has mini hdmi out to connect to a tv if you wanted to play a video etc.

(only in stock in Germany)

I'd avoid tablets with 1Gb of ram these days.
Doesn't specify the storage capacity at all, which is a deal breaker. If it doesn't state that in the ad, I'd avoid as well.
for most of the tablets and phones, 16Gb of storage space is really low as when you install a few apps, the storage space becomes really low.

Also, if you're looking for a reasonable price Android tablet, I'd go for one that has 2Gb of base ram, and with 32 Gb or more of storage space.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2019 is a good one. You pay triple the price, but it's far more worth it. Or you can check here:

There are some nice tablets there.
