Even the most ardent Android supporters out there would admit that in the world of tablets, the output of Android-based devices has dwindled in recent years.

Apple’s iPad today sails through with little to no competition as not very many brands seem to be interested in presenting a product that stands a real chance against Apple’s lineup. Now, it appears this tide is changing.

With Google’s Pixel Tablet on the way, we now have OnePlus joining the fray with their OnePlus Pad.

OnePlus Pad Review

Our team, at My Mobiles, have managed to spend some time with this new addition to the Indian tablet market and here’s our in-depth OnePlus Pad Review.

Before we get to the in-depth review, let’s take a quick look at the product overview, its features and pros & cons.

OnePlus has powered its first pad with the reliable MediaTek Dimencity 9000 5G SOC while the tablet sports a 11.61-inch LCD display with narrow bezels and a 144hz variable refresh rate.
The display comes in a 7×5 aspect ratio which OnePlus claims will provide a book-like reading experience and should be comfortable for all-day use.

The OnePlus Pad Price in India starts at Rs. 37,999 and it is expected to go on sale on 28th April 2023.

The OnePlus Pad has been launched in a single colour variant called Halo Green and the pad features an aluminium chassis with a matte finish back panel. This slim and lightweight pad design definitely stands out and so is the camera module centred along the length of the tablet in a unique look.

The pad has a 13-megapixel single rear camera that can shoot up to 4K 30 FPS videos and will be available in two variants of 8 GB RAM with 128 GB internal storage and 12 GB RAM with 256 GB of internal storage.
OnePlus pad uses an 8-megapixel front camera that can record videos up to 1080p at 30 FPS.

The pad also supports the new OnePlus Stylo Pen stylus for sketching, note-taking or various other tasks.
It uses a quad-speaker setup that supports Dolby Atmos and has the ability to automatically orient its left and right audio channels depending on how you are holding the device.

The OnePlus pad comes equipped with a 9510mh battery that supports 67-watt SUPERVOOC fast charging via the bundled adapter.

Moreover, as part of the OnePlus ecosystem push, users will be able to unlock additional features on the pad such as seamless 5G tethering, copy and paste between two devices and more.

This will be possible if you have a compatible OnePlus smartphone with the latest software and are signed in with the same account

So, let’s take a quick look at the key features and some device pros & cons.

OnePlus Pad Unboxing

OnePlus Pad Review

The OnePlus Pad is a highly anticipated tablet device from the popular Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus. The device comes in a sleek and elegant package that is designed to catch the eye of its potential users.

The packaging is minimalistic and showcases the tablet’s design with an image of the device on the front cover.

Opening the box, the first thing you will find is the OnePlus Pad neatly placed on top, securely held in place with from packaging. Removing the tablet from the box, you will notice its slim profile and sleek design.

The tablet is made of premium materials and has a beautiful finish that looks and feels premium.

Underneath the tablet, you will find a bunch of in-box content that comes bundled with the OnePlus Pad. These include a SUPERVOOC Power Adapter, Type-C Cable, a Quick Start Guide and the Safety Information and Warranty Card.
The charging cable is of high quality and allows for fast charging, while the charging brick is compact and easy to carry around.

Turning on the device, you will be greeted with a vibrant and clear 11.61-inch display ready to showcase the tablet’s powerful performance.

At first glance, the OnePlus Pad appears to be a beautifully designed and highly functional tablet that is made to impress. The unboxing experience is also smooth and satisfying.

OnePlus Pad Design

OnePlus Pad Review

The OnePlus Pad has a stylish premium design that sets it apart from other tablets in the market. OnePlus comes in only one colour option – the Halo Green.

However, it’s the popular OnePlus subtle green hue and nothing too bright, thus, the OnePlus fans shouldn’t have an issue.

The slim aluminium body of just 6.5 mm in thickness has a stylized metal back with a star orbit pattern, according to the company. This is how OnePlus is describing the machine’s circular lines that surround the large camera lens in the centre of the device’s back. This feature distinguishes it from the average Android tablet and from Apple’s iPads as well.

The camera lens is nice and noticeable on the back making it a standout feature.

The back panel of the OnePlus pad has an engraved OnePlus logo.

Meanwhile, the pad’s edges are mostly rounded with softly curved corners and the overall design is nothing but lovely. And there are uniform bezels around the display.

Interestingly, we also loved that there is a flat rather than rounded magnetic strip on the top right corner that allows you to attach and charge the stylus.

The OnePlus Pad is also relatively lightweight at just 552 grams. In fact, during our usage, we found it to be lighter than the Lenovo Duet 3i or even Apple’s iPad Pro 12.9, making it a comfortable-to-use device.

OnePlus is also offering a separate stylus and folio case similar to what the iPad and the Lenovo Duet 3i offer. Based on our limited experience, the keyboard is pleasant to type on. Also, the trackpad beneath the keyboard and the stylus have good responsiveness.

The OnePlus Pad has a connector on the bottom edge that allows it to securely snap into the folio case and there’s a power button on the top edge.

Though it lacks a fingerprint sensor, instead you can use Face Unlock or a Passcode to unlock this tablet. The volume rocker is located on the right edge and there’s also a USB-C charging along with an audio port. When in landscape mode the speakers are located on the top and bottom edges.

OnePlus Pad Display

OnePlus Pad hands-on: A solid first attempt

The 11.61-inch LCD display of the OnePlus Pad has a resolution of 2800 x 2000 pixels and a pixel density of 296 PPI. Now, this is something fairly typical for a tablet whether Android or iOS.

However, Samsung’s tablets have moly displays rather than LCD, which is one aspect to consider before purchasing any one of these. Also, we can’t deny the fact that not having a higher-end display could surely be a deal breaker for many tab users today.

The OnePlus Pad appears to offer plenty of detail as well as decent brightness. It tops out at 500 nits, a little higher than the Lenovo Duet 3i and we noticed good viewing angles based on our initial impressions. The colours on the screen are vibrant and punchy as well.

During our usage, we also noticed that the screen has a slightly different aspect ratio than the norm at 7:5 which is intended to be similar to a piece of A4 paper and works extremely well.

Because the screen-to-body ratio is slightly higher than 88 per cent, the bezels are lovely and slim and they also look great.

There’s also an adaptive 144hz refresh rate on board as well as a touch sampling rate of 120 hertz or 144 Hertz.

OnePlus Pad Performance

OnePlus Pad Performance

The OnePlus Pad is powered by a high-end MediaTek Demensity 9000 Chipset with a clock speed of up to 3.05 gigahertz. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor found in the OnePlus 11 and many other Android Flagship phones is set to hit the market in 2023 and isn’t quite as powerful but as tablets go the OnePlus pad is a capable beast.

OnePlus has made a big deal about the pad’s multitasking capabilities and its 8 or 12 GB RAM. In conjunction with the RAM-vita, this pad is claimed to be able to allow the user to run up to 24 Live apps at the same time

Now, during our hands-on session with the device, we attempted to do just that and while there weren’t 24 different apps to test, the OnePlus Pad seemed to comfortably handle simultaneously running more apps than I’d ever reasonably care to use at the same time ever.

Interestingly, the tablet’s gaming performance does suffer when 23 other apps are open at the same time but the fact that the tablet had that many apps running along with a heavy gaming session and was still standing strong is definitely impressive.

For more on how multitasking on OnePlus Pad actually feels, we will have to wait till more users come out with their experiences after the recent India launch.

And there are no 4G or 5G options for the OnePlus Pad. So you’ll have to rely on Wi-Fi for internet-related tasks.

The OnePlus Pad is powered by the brand’s Android 13-based Oxygen OS 13, which began rolling out to OnePlus smartphones in early 2023.

As a result, all of Oxygen OS bells and whistles are present and correct here with the split screen option which allows you to display two apps at the same time for easier multitasking.

This especially suits the OnePlus pads tablet form factor.

OnePlus Pad Camera

OnePlus Pad Review

The OnePlus Pad is equipped with two cameras – a 13-megapixel primary sensor on the back and an 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front.

Now, neither lenses are particularly innovative in function or design but the positioning of these cameras is definitely more intriguing than the OnePlus Pad’s actual camera setup.

The 13-megapixel circular rear sensor on the rear side of the tablet is smack dab in the middle of the frame. This is something OnePlus claims will help make photos appear a lot more natural.

With only a few sample shots during our hands-on testing of the device, it’s difficult to say whether that OnePlus decision about camera placement actually paid off or not. The shots we tried taking using the rear camera came out quite nice, even though there was nothing extraordinary.

The single 13-megapixel camera can shoot up to 4K 30 FPS videos and during our tests, the video results were quite satisfactory.

What will be interesting to compare is the look of pictures taken on the OnePlus Pad to those taken on any of Apple’s iPads. This will definitely give more clarity regarding the camera capabilities.

OnePlus Pad Battery

OnePlus Pad review: a new cheaper Android iPad challenger | Tablet computers | The Guardian

On paper, the OnePlus Pad comes with a massive 9510mAh battery that should outlast some of the best tablets available in the Indian tablet market in 2023.

Moreover, the pad can be fully charged in approximately 80 minutes using its 67-watt SUPERVOOC charging mechanism. As per OnePlus’s claim, the pad will be able to provide over 12.4 hours of video watching and one-month standby life.

Now, the battery specification definitely looks promising on paper and our usage experience definitely displayed the strength of the battery,


OnePlus Pad Performance

The OnePlus Pad is a lovely slim and slender tablet with a design that is a little different from other Android tablets. It has a premium build quality and some great features that make it an overall ideal choice when it comes to Andriod tablets.

Also, the keyboard on the folio case is great to type on from what we’ve seen so far.

There is no denying the fact that the OnePlus Pad has been launched with the intention to make a difference.

The stylish device with its really impressive battery power along with inbuilt functionalities will definitely give the device a boost in the market once the user experience starts rolling out as the sale starts.

The device is being marketed as a multitask pad that can be used throughout the day in a seamless manner and in our experience.

OnePlus’s well thought move to have 128GB internal storage along with the standard camera setup on both sides promises to cater exclusively to both work and entertainment requirements.

Lastly, an inbuilt 4G VoLTE voice calling facility is a good added feature to have.

Overall, if you are an Android enthusiast and looking for a large device with multitasking capabilities, the new OnePlus Pad is something we will surely recommend you to look at. Priced at Rs 37,999, this one packs everything that you might need in your everyday usage.

  • Pass media files to the memory card.
