Oppo Pad Air created a stir in the market as it was extremely difficult to recommend an Android-powered tablet for basic usage, but things have changed since its arrival. The Android tablet space, of late, has seen a couple of promising entries from different brands, including Motorola, Samsung, Realme and the latest one being from Oppo. Some of the major differences between Oppo Pad Air and iPad Air are listed below:
There are a few more things that the Oppo Pad Air has borrowed from Apple’s iPad Air. One of the things that you might notice is the flat-edged design. In terms of thickness, the Pad Air measures around 6.9 mm, which makes it a lot slimmer than the iPad Air and also easy to carry to places. The dual-tone texture on the rear panel of the Pad Air makes it look quite attractive when compared to the competition out there. While iPad Air is an all-aluminum tablet with Apple’s current design ethos of uniform bezels and flat sides.
In Oppo Pad Air top portion of the back panel is inspired by ‘sand dunes’, the company says. Whereas the other half has a soft matte finish design. The back panel also houses a single 8-megapixel primary camera sans the LED light. There is also an Oppo branding right at the center of the panel..Whereas in iPad Air , Touch ID is built into the top button, so you can use your fingerprint to unlock your iPad and sign in to apps.Also the iPad comes in five gorgeous colours.
- PERFORMANCE AND CAMERA
The Oppo Pad Air draws its power from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC coupled with up to 4GB of RAM. It is the same processor which has been used in a couple of mid-range phones that were unveiled recently. On the software front, the Oppo Pad Air runs on ColorOS 12.1 for tablets. In iPad Air, The 12MP Ultra Wide front camera enables Centre Stage, making video calls more natural and shooting content more fun. As one moves around, the camera automatically pans to keep you centered on the spot.
The battery of the Oppo Pad Air is one of its strongest areas. The tablet houses a 7100mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. The Pad Air could handle an average usage and lasts more more than two days on a single charge. As for charging, it takes almost an hour to refill completely. For tablets with a 10.36-inch display, getting a battery life of more than 2-3 days is quite good. In iPad Air, one of the most under-appreciated features is its fantastic battery life. Even with a high-resolution screen and a powerful processor, Apple’s tablet offers a battery life of 4 to 6 (or more) hours.
Most of the tablets at this price point aren’t really fit for heavy gaming, similar is the case with the Oppo Pad Air. While with an 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU, the new model of iPad Air is up to 60% faster than the previous ones along with twice the graphics processing speed .
