Learn and work without paper cuts – Manila Bulletin

Realme Pad X

Imagine this:

You are a college student staring at rows of bookshelves filled with books ranging from algebra math to zucchini planting. Like it or not, you have to sift through a pile of material to read.

Or as a work-from-home warrior, how close you want your work files to be when trying to fill out work orders and office reports.

Dream and wish for nothing, technology comes to the rescue with tablets, and realme offers everyone an option – a learning and working companion in the Pad X.

The realme Pad X trumps a smartphone as a must-have for serious students and workers. Plus, #1, you get a bigger screen for reading, browsing, and searching. Also, #2, it can be your co-worker who can store files and log into the office.

The realme Pad X goes on sale with a 10.95″ 2K FullView display, Dolby Atmos Quad speakers, Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G processor, and 8,340mAh battery with 33W Dart Charge support.

For well under $20,000, you also get a 13MP AI camera for taking impressive photos and the 105° wide front camera that takes care of online classes and zoom meetings. The realme Pad X comes with 6GB + 128GB configuration and 5G support for both SIM card slots.

TechNews asked for a realme Pad X to review, and we report that it met our expectations.

Unveiled by realme after the realme Pad and realme Pad mini treats, the Pad X sports the same design principle of having a solid construction, although it only has a polycarbonate body.

The realme Pad X measures 7.1mm and weighs well under 500 grams – portable enough to put in a backpack or small work bag, or just carry to your school or workplace.

Realme Pad X

The realme Pad X has two speaker grilles positioned on either side of the tablet’s frame, the power button is at the top while the volume rocker, microphone and magnetic pin for the realme Pencil are on the right.

For the display, the Pad X features a 10.95-inch 2K FullView display offering 2000 x 1200 pixel resolution with an 84.6% screen-to-body ratio. The screen performs on crisp and vibrant colors, as well as viewing angles with a peak brightness of up to 450 Nits.

Since all work and no play makes it a bore, realme added some extra bells and whistles to the Pad X.

We found the quad Dolby Speaker setup on the realme Pad X to be among the best around – for a lot less than 20K. It is capable of producing crisp, clear sounds with minimal distortion, even with the volume set to maximum. You can even add a decent amount of bass for an immersive video-watching experience, even without a headset or Bluetooth speaker.

Enjoy some above-average photography with the realme Pad X, and we did that with its 13MP Al camera with an f/2.2 aperture, 33.7mm focal length and a 6x zoom. The 8MP Al front camera has a 105° wide front camera which can take a wider image for groufies. The photo quality is not professional, but with the right lighting conditions and the help of AI, our photos are worthy of Instagram. The front camera’s Limelight feature is supported on Google Meet, Zoom, and Google Duo.

The realme Pad X also automatically tracks the user’s face and crops it as it moves in frame, and performs well even with five people in frame.

The realme Pad X is no weakling with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor, a popular SoC that has been used by several other Android phones. This power-efficient processor comes with two Cortex-A78 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores and is paired with an Adreno 619 GPU. 6GB RAM and dynamic RAM expansion up to 5GB enable easy multitasking even when multiple applications are open.

We have to say that the realme Pad X is an efficient multitasking companion, even when used for entertainment and gaming, or for blogging, photo and video editing, and content creation – things we used to do on our laptop.

We like the battery life of its 8,340mAh power bank, which also comes with a 33W charger inside that can fully recharge in about two hours.

We recommend the realme Pad X to students and people who want to do a lot without extra baggage and painful paper cuts.
