Xiaomi Pad 5 Malaysia Design
The Xiaomi Pad 5 is has a premium, slim, and lightweight design. The Xiaomi Pad 5’s frame is made from aluminum, while the black is plastic and the front obviously is glass. The Xiaomi Pad 5 is super slim at just 6.9mm, which is slimmer than almost all smartphones nowadays. It also weighs just 511g despite its size.
Even though the back is made out of plastic, it doesn’t feel cheap. The matte finish gives it a smooth and premium feel making it nice to hold. The front has no protection, which is a bummer, you will have to use tempered glass for protection.
The power button is on the top, while the volume rockers are on the right side. The USB-C port is on the bottom. You can find four speaker grills in total, two on the top and two on the bottom. The four speakers come together to offer excellent sound quality with Dolby Atmos support.
The Xiaomi Pad 5 has support for accessories like a Pen and a Keyboard. The keyboard connectors are on the left side of the frame, while the right side of the frame is magnetic for Pencil charging.
Overall, the design is simply amazing for the price. It’s slim, lightweight, and feels great. Build quality could have been better, as there’s no gorilla glass protection. However, for the price, I have no complaints about it. Even the colors look great. You can choose the Xiaomi Pad 5 in Cosmic Gray, Pearl White, and Green colored options.
Xiaomi Pad 5 Malaysia Display
The display is an area where the Xiaomi Pad 5 shines especially compared to its competitor. The Xiaomi Pad 5 comes with an 11-inch LCD screen that is bright and colorful.

The Xiaomi Pad 5 has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels making it super sharp despite its large size. The display also supports Dolby Vision making it great for consuming content like TV shows and Movies. Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos make the Xiaomi Pad 5 one of the best devices to watch stuff on.
Overall, even though the display is just LCD, it is bright, responsive, and vibrant. All of this makes the display Xiaomi Pad 5 better than its competitors like the iPad 9th generation. Even the bezels are minimal. You can get a better display for under 1500 RM on a tablet right now.
Xiaomi Pad 5 Malaysia Performance
One thing the Xiaomi Pad 5 offers that other Android tablets have failed to in the past, is good performance. Android tablets in the past have been known for offering low or midrange chips which were terrible. However, with the Xiaomi Pad 5, you get a high-end Snapdragon 860 for under 1500 RM.
Snapdragon 860 combined with LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 3.1 Storage, you get snappy performance no matter what task you do. The Xiaomi Pad 5 is great for gaming, browsing, and for apps. You can open and switch between apps in an instant.
Xiaomi has tweaked MIUI for tablets and it offers cool split screen features and more that make using the Xiaomi Pad 5 even better. All this with a 120Hz screen and 240Hz touch sampling rate amazing for all tasks. You will have a great experience for entertainment, gaming, and productivity alike.
The Xiaomi Pad 5 is not the best performing tablet under 30000 INR, but it’s super close to the iPad 9th Gen. While the iPad has better performance, it lacks 120 Hz and is a bit costlier too. I’m impressed with the performance of the Xiaomi Pad 5. With more software tweaks, it will shine even more.
