The Realme Pad X is the first tablet from Realme to offer 5G connectivity and comes with support for accessories including the Realme Pencil as well as the Realme Smart Keyboard. We used the 6GB RAM and 128GB internal variant for a few days and here’s what we think about the latest 5G tablet.

realme pad x design and display
Realme’s new Pad X comes with two color variants – Glacier Blue and Glowing Grey, we used the Glacier Blue model. Talking about the location of the buttons, there is a power button at the top, volume rocker on the right and a SIM tray on the left. Four speaker outlets with a Type-C port, two at the top and two at the bottom. The back of the pad is made of plastic and has a matte finish. Overall, the device scores well in terms of design.
The Realme Pad X flaunts a 10.95-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels, 16.7 million colours, 450 nits peak brightness level and 84.6% screen-to-body ratio. The panel supports DC dimming, a TÜV Rheinland-certified hardware-level blue light filter, and stylus input via the ‘Realme Pencil’ stylus accessory that provides 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and a 240Hz sampling rate. The tablet offers better details and clearer colors, along with an anti-glare display for day-to-day usage. During our review, we mainly used the device for watching OTT content and we really liked it.
realme pad x performance
The newly launched tablet from Realme is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G system-on-chip and Adreno 619 GPU coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM along with 11GB of Dynamic RAM. This storage space can be further expanded using a microSD card of 512GB storage space. On the software side, the Realme Pad X runs Realme UI 3.0 for the Pad. According to the company, the tablet can also use up to 5GB of inbuilt storage as virtual RAM for better performance. During our tests, we did not feel any lag in using the device for everyday work. Games like ‘Call of Duty Mobile’ and ‘Asphalt 9’ were playable at maximum graphics. Last but not least, it is backed by an 8,340mAh battery with support for 33W fast wired charging. The Realme Pad X also comes with support for the low-latency Realme Pencil, which can be used for making and taking notes, and supports magnetic wireless charging with a battery backup of 10.6 hours. The tablet also supports the Realme Smart Keyboard, which has a travel distance of 1.3mm and supports various keyboard shortcuts.
realme pad x camera
In terms of optics, the Realme Pad X is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera. The tablet comes with an 8-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera with a 105-degree field of view for selfies and video calls. During the review, the device managed to take some good selfies. However, the main camera fails to deliver the same results.
The Realme Pad X is impressive, thanks to the Snapdragon 695 SoC, 11-inch WUXGA+ resolution display, and 8,340mAh battery. It comes with a 33W charger inside the box which takes around 3 hours to fully power the tablet. The new Realme Pad X comes with beneficial features like 5G capability, which makes it unique. Despite being a decent device, it will definitely face a tough challenge, especially from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite and Oppo Pad Air. Still, if you’re looking for a 5G tablet, the Pad X could be a good option.
