Mi Pad 4 Plus 4+64GB, LTE 10" tablet for CAD 348

Deal Link:
Price:
347.68
Retailer:
JOYBUY
probably the cheapest Mi pad 4 Plus in the market, even cheaper than price from xiaomi's China website.
the spec is fine, not the best though, but for 348 CAD, I would say it's a decent deal.
the spec can be found on gsmarena: gsmarena...
although the original system is not international version, meaning there is no google service integrated , you can find the international version of rom from xiaomi's europe forums and it seems it's not that hard to flash the eu rom into the Mipad 4 Plus
here is the link of the xiaomi's eu forums xiaomi.eu...
Joybuy is operated by JD.com, basically the competitor of Aliexpress


Oct 20 update:
forget to mention, this is LTE version, it's compatible with rogers/fido frequency

Ohh I've been eyeing the small version for a while and that's on sale as well. How trustworthy is the website and how quick are the package shipments and do we get dinged with a customs charge?

maybe it's just me but at this price i would pay a bit more and just buy the ipad with coupon/sales unless you just hate ios. Snapdragon 660 doesn't sound promising at all in comparison to a A10.

I was thinking the same thing... even for that amount if you're not an iOS fan, a really great Android tablet could be had for the same or less no?
Plus warranty issues and waiting a month for delivery.
The first rule of RFD is, you do not talk about RFD.

i bought the first mipad and I would say it was "ok" because they were using nvidia cpu which was a "top class" cpu only used in mipad and nexus 9. At that time ipad was expensive so it was somewhat justifiable.

This mipad 4 uses a Snapdragon CPU which can be found anywhere and it's not even a top-class cpu. There is so much alternative nowadays and with ipad entry model being introduced most android tablet are kinda dead in a sense because the experience is just so much better for average users. Paying $348 to buy this from China, a month of delivery, warranty issue just seems insane to me unless I am missing something.

I'll chime in here because after a lot of deliberation I bought the 8" little sibling of this tablet (Mi Pad 4) about a month ago.

For the price it was the best package in the market IMHO with 64GB and expandable storage and LTE for $283 (¥1500) and small size and the SD 660 works great for my daily use while commuting. Installing Google play store + Apps was also a breeze, took 30 minutes all said and done.

Now, I debated getting this 10" version instead, but decided against it since the smaller form factor better fit my needs. Also, the 2018 iPad at the sameish price seems like the better choice considering the much better screen, since these are for media consumption after all.

there's a 128gb variant.
for the normal apple price to go 1 bump higher -- so technically you're getting 128gb for a 64gb spec bump.
(they started doing this during the iPad Air 2 to encourage upgrade purchases)

how do you find the screen of mipad 4, I was kinda worried about the resolution of mipad since the tablet I am using is a 8 inch with 1536*2048 resolution

It's OK for the 8" size 1200 x 1920 pixels.
The 10" size also shares the same resolution, so it's relatively much worse. The screen is nice and bright but it won't wow you, also no full HD Netflix technically since it's Widewine L3, but still looks good to me, and it's perfect for games and YouTube, surfing etc
