Realme Pad X is the most powerful Tab in the company’s portfolio. The newly launched Pad X is a full-fledged 5G tablet with a mid-range chipset. Furthermore, it comes with some exclusive accessories like Smart Keyboard, the case, and a Realme Pencil Stylus to enhance the user experience. Let’s find out what’s best with this in the full review.
Realme Pad X Tab: Design
The all-new Realme Pad X comes with the solid build quality. The back is a polycarbonate material which offers an excellent in-hand feel. It does not feel flimsy. Furthermore, there are no wobbly or mushy buttons. Considering the price point, the Realme Pad X offers a pretty premium in-hand experience. It is great to see that Realme has not compromised on the build quality. This is one of the areas to get axed by most tech companies.
At first look, the colour and the design of Realme Pad X remind me of the younger sibling Realme Pad Mini. In terms of physical structure, the volume rockers are present on the top, along with a microphone. The newly launched Realme Tab comes with a Hybrid SIM expansion slot. I can use Hybrid SIM (Nano + Nano/ microSD) on this tablet. Meanwhile, this SIM tray is present on the bottom edge.
The right edge features a USB Type-C port in the middle and dual speakers on both edges. The left edge gets the power button, speakers and a microphone. Meanwhile, all four side gets the metal finish. However, unlike the aluminium back panel on the Realme Pad and the Pad Mini, the Realme Pad X has a plastic back.
The back panel on Realme Pad X gets a sparkling sand texture, looks premium. Furthermore, the back panel does not attract fingerprints that easily. The 13MP rear camera sits on the corner with AI branding. Besides this, we can also see the small Realme branding.
Realme Pad X Tab: Display and Performance
The all-new Realme Pad X has an excellent display for the price point. The 10.95-inch display on the Realme Pad X Tab comes with a WUXGA+ (Widescreen eXtened Graphics Array Plus) screen resolution of 1200*2000 pixels. The display offers a 213 PPI Pixel density and 84.6 per cent screen-to-body ratio.
The tablet makes the most out of new software features available across Realme UI on this display. The new UI allows multitasking using split screen mode. The dual split windows can resize and float across the display. Meanwhile, we can drag and drop windows.
In terms of display quality, the screen is adequately bright in indoor lighting conditions. Realme claims that the display can reach a peak brightness of 450 nits with Sunlight Mode active with indoor lighting conditions. The viewing angles are decent enough. However, the screen is glossy and is prone to fingerprints. Also Read – Realme Pad Tab Mini, HP Pavilion x360 Stylus Pen price in India and other tech news
Realme Pad X Tab also gets reading mode. With Reading Mode, the display turns black and white. It is pretty helpful while long reading sessions. The eye comfort mode cuts out the blue light. Furthermore, the Realme Pad X offers good depth and colour reproduction with an LCD display panel. I enjoy watching YouTube videos and movies on the Realme Pad X. Along with an adequately bright display; the sound quality is also decent enough.
The Quad-Speaker setup on the latest Realme Pad X Tab can get loud without adding any distortion. The sound quality is pretty decent, considering other competitors in the market. The audio system doesn’t feel tinny or lack bass. However, there is no place for the 3.5mm headphone jack. In my opinion, this should have been on all the tablets across different price ranges.
Snapdragon 695 Performance on Realme Tab
In general, day-to-day tasks, Realme Pad X offers pretty good performance. With Snapdragon 695 SoC onboard, the performance of the mid-range tablet is decent. Realme Pad X also offers gaming to an extent. I tried playing some popular games, like the recently banned BGMI. The game ran at Smooth + Ultra graphic settings quite impressively.
As mentioned above, this is the first ever tablet powered by the Snapdragon 695 5G processor, designed on the 6nm fabrication process. The device gets 2x A78 cores clocked at up to 2.2GHz, and 6x A55 cores are clocked at up to 1.8GHz. Furthermore, with Adreno 618 GPU, the device promises a 30 per cent hike in graphic performance. The latest Realme Tab packs in up to 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM.
I did not face any issues or frame drops during graphics-intensive gaming sessions. Although, the device does get a bit warm while long gaming sessions. But it doesn’t get too hot. The Realme Tab delivers impressive performance for the price. Another plus point is that this Realme Pad X tablet has proper support for 13 5G bands. It will ensure high-speed data connectivity whenever the 5G rolls out. Furthermore, there is also a sport for microSD card, which will be fruitful with memory expansion.
Realme Pad X Tab: Camera
Talking about the optics, the latest Realme Pad X Tab gets a 13MP rear camera without flash. Furthermore, there is an 8MP front shooter, which offers a 105-degree wide viewing angle. Both of these cameras are capable of recording videos at up to 1080p at 30fps. The front camera quality is decent for video callings. Moreover, the rear camera can also click some decent shots.
When it comes to features, one of the highlighting features is that this Realme Tab comes with intelligent movement tracking. This feature keeps the person in the centre of the frame. Furthermore, an auto-framing part simulates the focal length change when the tablet is in motion. These features work well with Zoom, Google Meet, and Google Duo.
Moreover, the company has also promised to bring these features to other apps. Overall, the camera UI is essential, with basic zooming options from 1x up to 6x zoom for images. There is a toggle button for the front and back camera. Video Mode, timelapse, text-scanner and slo-mo work well on this tablet. I tried to make video calls and join conference calls on this Realme Pad X Tab without any quality issues. The rear camera is good enough to scan a document. I also enjoyed augmented reality (AR) apps on this tablet.
Realme Pad X Tab: Battery Life
Talking about the battery life, the Realme Pad X Tab packs an 8340mAh battery. This massive battery offers up to 19 hours of video playback time. As per my usage, I got over 15 hours of streaming time on Netflix, YouTube and Prime Video. Remember, this duration might vary depending on the brightness levels you set on your device.
Similarly, for charging, the Pad X tablet support 33W Dart Chart fast charging. The previous generation tablets from Realme come with 18W fast charging support. The Chinese tech giant claims that with this fast-charging solution, the battery can charge from 0 to 50 per cent in just 1 hour. It will take over 2 hours to charge completely from 50 per cent. It is better charging speeds, as the previous generation models take over 3 hours to charge completely.
Realme Pad X Tab: Software Features
As for the software, the Realme Tab runs on Android 12 OS with Realme UI 3.0 for Pad. My unit comes with May 2022 Android security update. The new Realme UI 3.0 for Pad offers options like Multi-Window Mode. Meanwhile, this mode allows us to let tun two apps side-by-side simultaneously. Furthermore, we also get Google Kid Space, which provides a wide range of apps, videos and books suitable for children. Moreover, parents can also set screen usage limits and restricted apps.
A multi-screen Collaboration feature also comes with Realme Pad. It allows smartphone users to case their phone’s screen on the Realme Pad X. Furthermore, this option also enables copying text and transferring files. Currently, this feature is compatible with Realme phones like Realme GT 2 Pro, GT Neo2, Realme Neo 3, GT Neo 3T and GT Master Edition. Realme will be adding support for more devices shortly.
