    Absolutely love this tablet and used it ever since I bought it (at least a year ago). Fantastic value.

    NIce tablet. the screen is a little too sensitive, but you do get used to it. Their android skin is a bit basic but does the job. Performance is excellent.

    Does it support Widevine L1 so can watch Netflix / Prime in HD?
    Avatar
    Yes it does

    How does it compare to the Samsung Tab S range?

    Tab S6 Lite is closest in cost.
    This has a better screen quality, refresh, HDR10, Dolby Vision, pixel per inch, processor, internal storage, cameras, speakers, battery size and charging speed

    How do you add a coupon please? I added 22NOV30 and says already added. The website £30 when spending £300 does not appear to trigger. Tried website and app. Thank you

    You should get £30 off automatically using the app and then apply the code. You also need to add the other items to your basket

    Is this noticibly quicker than an S6 lite? Considering an upgrade.

    It's gone up in price now.

    Also what's the battery life like on this?

    Assume it runs on Android as well?
    Avatar
    Yes runs on miui - a skin on android.

    This looks good but the size is not a good fit for me. Does no-one make a 7" or 8" tablet that has a decent spec any more?
    Avatar
    Lenovo Legion tablet is best 8" tablet on the market, but not launched in EU yet.

    Has the HDR / Dolby Vision firmware issue been resolved yet? (After some searching, it appears this issue has NOT been fixed!)

    I've also got my eye on the Lenovo P11 Pro Gen 2... that also suffers the same HDR issue, though a fix has been pushed out to China firmware models, waiting for Global rollout... Lenovo aren't great with support but they've developed a fix within 2 months of launch... not sure that Xiaomi have fixed this issue after a year.

    Thanks for this important info - I am trying to decide between this and the P11 Pro Gen 2 and thanks to your comment I will pass on this one and check whether the HDR problem on the P11 Pro Gen 2 has been fixed.

    Was really hoping for the tablet with free air fryer combo.

    Is this the tablet that was free with the Xiaomi 12t pro a few weeks ago?

    No, that was the Redmi Tab.

    Just need the smart pen to hit around £40 to £50 mark, the tab itself is brilliant.
  15. Avatar
    Any combos with the smart pen?
  16. Avatar
    anyone else got this and unable to change the widget sizes ? Its so annoying.
    Avatar
    Use a third party launcher like Nova, should be able to change sizes...

    It's already been asked and answered above - re: Widevine L1 - but apparently the tablet has issues with it, and the fixes have included uninstalling updates to Netflix and stuff like that. And on top of that, the HDR performance is apparently pretty bad (example - forum.xda-developers.com/t/i…25/).

    Can anyone who owns it talk about their experience with it for HDR video content?

    Only thing holding me off because I know Xiaomi's hardware is great value and it'll blow away other tablets in the same price range in most other aspects.
    Avatar
    How does uninstalling Netflix equal the device having issue, surely it means the software is the issue?
    Netflix update their whitelist every 3 months, hense why every OEM has had issues with service.
    Checking the HDR performance on YouTube, there doesn't seem to be any issues on that platform.

    Not the Best Price I remember going down to 250 pounds and they had great gifts for that price. Will buy it again just waiting for a gift as well. (edited)
    Avatar
    Is anyone aware, when Xiaomi have had this on offer previously with a free gift, has the gift ever been the official stylus?

    Trying to work out whether to bite now or wait for potential sales after Xmas. This price seems good but the stylus is not cheap on its own.
  26. Avatar
    Does anyone know if I can stack Mi Points with this? If I exchange 600 for £30 will that come off in addition to all the other discounts?
    Avatar
    Good question that..if I could get this under £250 I'd be tempted
  27. Avatar
    I bought this last year for £370. Brilliant quality!
  28. Avatar
    The tablet itself is great. I wish there were alternatives to the stylus/pen. I'll probably need to get one from from china where these are around £45-50
    Avatar
    Do you know what type of smart pen is required if you go with compatible?

    I know there are various standards for stylus depending on brand etc. Is it Xiaomi's own standards as opposed to a generic stylus standard. (edited)
  29. Avatar
    There's also a deal for £90 off when you spend over £500. I got scales, the backpack, drawing pads, motion activated lights, camera, and the smart pen. Essentially doing my tech Xmas shop in at once. I used klarna as I'm not stinking rich but it wouldn't take klarna payment till I put the site in Desktop mode!

    Hope I don't end up regretting black Friday thou as these codes last up till the end of the month too, hopefully they'll let you use the codes along with black Friday deals then. Hopefully I haven't lost too much too lol (edited)

    Is this a good deal, as considering getting it. Showing up as 276.98 for me with any color backpack.
    Will black friday deals likely beat this?

    Just to clear up Widevine issues and who is in control

    Widevine is a proprietary DRM solution from Google that's used by many popular streaming services to prevent content privacy. There are three Widevine security levels: L1, L2, and L3. In order for a device to support full HD and above streaming, it must support L1.

    Source

    So just to clarify GOOGLE write and own the security code.

    This means if your device has not been whitelisted by Netflix it can not access Ultra HD services, if it has not been entered properly you can not access HDR content. The whitelist is updated once every three months, so it is very unwise to base your purchase Netflix compatability the system has proved itself not fit for purpose.

    This is the best Tab under £300 with 13 beta and custom rom support. No doubt the devs have looked at the latest attempt from Google to patch the issue and now have standalone solutions.
    Avatar
    It is real that Netflix must whitelist devices for them to work, or is this an urban myth that is perpetuated online? I can't find information online regarding a Netflix whitelist except on discussion forums.

    For example, the POCO F3 (Redmi K40) is not listed on the Netflix support page for devices that support HDR, however, HDR works perfectly on my son's POCO F3 and is reported in reviews as working. I believe the list published on the Netflix help page is only a list of devices that they certify will work, not a list of the only devices that will work (there are certainly articles online that refer to Netflix having a list of certified devices).

    If it truly was a whitelist, then Netflix HDR would not work on the POCO F3. Much like PC memory... motherboard manufacturers publish compatibility lists for memory modules - they have tested and confirm full compatibility for those modules tested, but many other memory sticks will work perfectly.

    Looks like I cannot order it as my postcode is not being recognised and there is no way to enter town / postcode manually... Tried in app as well as via Chrome and Firefox. Same issue
    Asked Xiaomi for help on Twitter but they did not respond

    Register your acc. online and enter you council borough rather then you district.

    So tempting...with points it comes in at £253 for me.

    Judging by the black Friday promo photo images there may be a deal coming on the Redmi Pad 6 at some point soon so thinking I will hold out for that - although not as high spec it has a SD card slot and will likely get more updates with being a newer product. (edited)
