Realme Pad Mini will go on sale today for the first time since its launch in India. The latest Android tablet by Realme is a compact version of the Realme Pad, which was launched last year. The Realme Pad Mini, therefore, is smaller and slightly less powerful than its bigger version. Realme said the Pad Mini is targeted at students, which is why the software on it is not as heavily customised as the Realme UI.
If you are looking for an affordable Android tablet, the Realme Pad Mini is worth considering. It brings a good display, a processor fast enough to handle light tasks, and a metal design that imparts premium looks to the Realme Pad Mini. However, there are three features that make it a good option on the market. But before I talk about them, let us get the pArice and sale details of the Realme Pad Mini out of our way.

Realme Pad Mini: 3 reasons to consider it
Display: The Pad Mini comes with an 8.7-inch screen with an HD resolution. It has a screen-to-body ratio of 84.59 per cent, which is good for watching movies. The bezels are thin on two sides, which makes the display looks a little bigger, but the other two sides have thicker bezels for a reason. When you hold the tablet horizontally, these spaces make sure your thumbs get ample space and do not obscure the screen. The display also supports Eye Comfort Mode, which lowers blue light emission to make the reading experience better.
Stereo speakers: Tablets are not just for working on documents. They are also for consuming media. With stereo speakers, your experience is going to be good. The sound is louder than usual and that is something that will appeal to the users.
Battery: You get big batteries on tablets. That is because tablets are meant to last longer. On the Realme Pad Mini, you get a 6400mAh battery, which is definitely smaller than that of the Realme Pad, but is claimed to offer up to nearly 16 hours of video streaming. There is also support for 18W fast charging on the tablet.
