No new update for Mipad 4 for a long time liao. Xiaomi sort of abandoned this tablet liao. Today I would not consider buying this tablet because the support for it is EOL.

There is rumor of a new Redmi Tablet but it is still rumor at this moment.

so long the custom dev community is still supporting, this is still a solid tablet.
just switched from Google service image to the latest lineageOS a couple of days ago..
and it's solid

android 10 and device is certified in play store

perfect for netflix / plex / youtube / (magazine) reading / browsing / gaming.

How long has the Lineage project lasted? For as long as this tablet has been around right?

Waited so long for mipad5
Nowadays people seldom buy diy pc
It is better to switch to low cost tablets and phones

PC and tablet serve very different function. Even the most expensive tablet is no replacement for PC in most cases, even less so on budget tablet unless its mainly for media consumption.

Hi, my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 recently broke down and is looking for a replacement. Heard the Mipad 4 is good. Is it still worth to buy now? Where is the cheapest I can find for mipad4 8” wifi+LTE?

Qoo10 is your best bet... look for the shop Finer... most users here buy from them... otherwise import in from China yourself from Taobao or Xiaomi's website lor...

Recent price of mipad4 have shot up to pretty ridiculous amount compared to previously. I would suggest consider looking at Samsung Tab A if your budget is around $200. Really not worth getting mipad 4 now with that inflated pricing. Or if you are looking at about $500+, tab S5E/S6 lite is your best bet, audio and screen of S5E is few notch above mipad.

I was puzzled why the price for mipad4 came up to $500+. I read up the thread and saw some got it at $255 6 mths back. So the price really increased ah...what’s the reason for the price hike ah? Never see before electronics increase price one leh.

Taobao still can get LTE model under $300 but got to know how to ship back via external shipper or ezbuy?

Bro, mind sharing how u boot to TWRP recovery? I copied the image file, LineageOS zip n Gapp zip into my Mi Pad already, goes into recovery mode but can only see Reboot, Wipe Data, Connect with MiAssistant at the main menu. What did I missed out?

Thanks.

You can try, I sold my base model at $200, the same price I got it for. Managed to find S5E at $380 and realized I missed so much. The sound quality blow the mipad4 left right up down. Most important of all, HD on netflix!.
But overall mipad4 seems to be slightly more responsive even with weaker chipset due to lower pixels and probably better OS.
