You all ordered 3/32 or 4/64? Both also have microsd slot right?

Okie, I finally succumbed to it. I bought the LTE version from Finer (Qoo10) at $410 :o

Thinking of buying this, or the Microsoft Surface Go or Samsung Tab S4

For best performance, s4
For maximum value, mi pad 4
For NOT gaming, surface go

Yeah really spoilt for choice. I'm not using the tablet for gaming, mainly surfing net and watching videos. I think 8.0" might be too small for me, as I had the 8.0" Samsung S2. Surface Go seems cheap at first, but if you want the higher end SSD model + keyboard + stylus, it's actually quite expensive. So I hope the Samsung S4 specs would be good.

Hey guys... Really want to get one to use it for drone flying...

Can anyone install the dji go 4 app on the mipad4 once they get it? Better if you own a drone... :)

If you are looking for best value, I think this is probably the better tablet. S4 is not going to be cheap, and I would recommend if you steer clear or at least wait before buying an MS hardware given all the critical issues with each of their Surface Pro model. Also, it won't be cheap because the keyboard is almost a must when using Win 10 since it is nowhere as finger friendly as Android and iOS.

It will be good, but it won't be cheap. You can always look back at S2 and the current S3 to get a sense how much it will cost you.

In the end I just hoot the Mi Pad 4 (wifi only) to try out :o

Wondering is anyone else comparing between the Mi Pad 4 vs Huawei M5 8.4. The latter has a higher-spec screen, expandable storage, but on the other hand slightly more expensive and smaller battery.

base don my experience using tab pro-s, using windows based tablet is really different experience from using traditional tablet like ipad/android.
even simple thing like adjusting screen brightness, volume, time seek via touch gesture is not straight forward.
I would suggest approaching surface go as different category from android tablet

Anytime, Mi Pad 4 for this case as processor is much better. Also, Huawei traditionally is slow or none firmware patch.

Agreed on the screen but not processor. Kirin processor is so so only, just like MTK processor, it always win in term of benchmark score only.

Kirin like MTK? Mayb yes for the cost reduction Kirin 600 series ..

For Kirin 960 and above, it is not weaker than SD 600 series .. just plus minus a bit for performance but for sure above MTK , SD may have a bit advantage in power consumption control, gaming ...Kirin is catching up with its GPU Turbo feature just rolled out to its Honor series including the M5 to speed up overall speed and game performance

M5 has much more better spec and features and of course at higher price point..n Huawei just rolled out GPU Turbo update to M5 to boast its speed and gaming performance ..

The much closer comparison , Lenovo Tab 4 plus with lower SD625 and battery capacity and closer price range .. Mi pad 4 besides its SD660, rest are just reduced specs from its Mi pad 3.. it is just a cost reduced model ...

And the reduced price M3 oso not a bad option..

Is still base on A72 cortex processor anyway. Vs SD660 is A53.
This is a comparison between Kirin 960 and SD660.

Everything about the kirin 960 looks superior than the sd660.
So how?
