OPPO Pad2 Keyboard and Pen

Price & Availability

In terms of pricing, it’s identical between the two units with them both selling in China for 2499 yuan. Once the global variants are released, it’ll be interesting to see how the two stack up against each other.

  • Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro Price: £299.99 (2499 Yuan)

You can expect this price to increase around 20-25% once they’re released officially into secondary international markets. Still, it’s a long way off from the fruity competitors pricing! cough-cough Apple.

Xiaomi Pad 6 Performance

Performance, Benchmarks & Gaming

Okay, this is where things will get a little more exciting… or so I thought… We’re pitting the two giants of mobile chips against each other! MediaTek Vs Qualcomm and the results are good news for consumers but a little boring.

Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro

  • Graphics: Adreno 730
  • RAM: 8GB or 12GB LPDDR5
  • Storage: 128GB or 256GB or 512GB UFS 3.1

The Snapdragon Adreno GPU sneaks ahead in raw gaming fps performance by around 5%. There is also better driver support for playing older games on the Snapdragon chipsets compared to MediaTek’s Dimensity.

In terms of raw productivity performance, single-threaded applications will perform equally well between the two chips. When multitasking, the Dimensity 9000 sneak ahead with a 10% higher score.

In reality, when using these two tablets for gaming or productivity, there’s little difference.

OPPO Pad2 Dual Battery

Battery Life & Charging

The two tablet makers have chosen different approaches to battery life.

The Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro opts for an 8600mAh battery paired up with ultra-fast 67watt charging.

The VIVO Pad2 used a larger 10000mAh battery but with slower 44watt charging. Let’s remember though, this larger battery has to power that extra inch of display.

Since tablets are mobile and handheld, the Pad 6 Pro’s lighter design wins it for me. And being able to charge the battery 50% faster on the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is another great plus.

With that said, both tablets are very capable and blow the competition out of the water when it comes to battery life vs weight vs charge speeds. The Xiaomi Pad just has the edge.

Winner: Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro

Neither of the base models of each tablet includes the Stylus in the box, but come as an extra upgrade bundle at the time of purchase or as a separate purchase.

In terms of design, both pens opt for a sleek white finish with a groove down one side for extra grip. The Xiaomi Stylus uses 2x physical buttons compared to VIVO with a capacitive area which supports taps and slide inputs.
