OnePlus Pad: del Gadget Lab review
The OnePlus Pad stands out in several ways: being the first tablet to adopt a 7:5 aspect ratio (4:3 on the iPad and 3:2 on the Microsoft Surface Pro), it features a 144Hz screen refresh, and it can mount the rear camera in the middle of the back. Let’s go in parts.
It measures 258 x 189 x 6.5 mm and weighs 550 grams, and its finish is 100% premium: a slim aluminum body and back with a pattern called Star Orbit, surrounds the camera and gives it an undeniable appeal.
Always in a horizontal layout, in the upper right corner there is a magnetic support for placing and charging the stylus; On the bottom edge there is a connector for attaching it to the keyboard cover. The power button is located on the left edge. In the upper profile, left area, volume control; The USB-C port is in the middle of the right edge. Side profiles incorporate the speakers. The front camera is above the screen in the middle.
LCD type, 11.6 inches, we repeat the 7: 5 format, it offers a resolution of 2800 x 2000 (296 ppi) and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. In addition to the aforementioned format (which depends, frankly, on tastes) what sets the OnePlus Pad apart is its 144Hz refresh rate and 120Hz or 144Hz touch sampling rate, providing an ultra-smooth system navigation experience. It doesn’t quite reach the resolution and fluidity of an OLED display with such a record, but the experience is really very positive.
It provides, in any case, excellent detail and … decent brightness (500 cd / m²). It is compatible with HDR and Dolby Vision formats, which translates to natural and faithful reproduction of videos in general. The odd 7:5 aspect ratio works well with DinA4-like contents (web and e-books).
MediaTek Dimensity 9000 is not a modern processor, but it is very powerful and, above all, seriously proven. Coupled with the 8GB of RAM (expandable as necessary via virtual means) and the panel’s fast refresh rate, there’s no other way to say the OnePlus panel delivers great performance. Can you handle everything? Yes with any application and a lot for normal daily use (networks, youtube, office…). video game? If it requires a lot of graphics loading, it is recommended to set the frequency to 30fps so that the fluidity is not affected; Lower level games, no problem at all.
The speakers provide great sound. The array of four speakers dynamically adjusts based on how the tablet is held, ensuring proper stereo placement and creating an immersive experience for content consumption, eliminating the need for headphones. They are powerful speakers (no exaggeration) with excellent bass response and clarity. This, along with the screen quality, makes the OnePlus Pad ideal for YouTube and streaming platforms.
The OnePlus Pad integrates a 9,510mAh battery; On paper, it promises up to 12 hours of video and a month on standby. In practice, according to our tests, it corresponds to this usage history as long as it is normal, that is, light; If your thing is to play a lot of video games, the autonomy can be reduced by up to half. We weren’t able to test autonomy in standby mode because our review unit testing period ended early.
charging dynamics supports up to 67W; It gets to 100% charged, from 0%, in about 82 minutes. Note that this tablet comes without a charger.
The OnePlus Pad comes with OxygenOS 13.1, OnePlus’ custom layer on top of Android 13. If you know how OxygenOS works on the brand’s phones, well, on a tablet, it’s the same: a clean and smooth user experience, plenty of customization options, a simple design and it’s all intuitively simple. . Yes, that tells us we’re fans of OxygenOS: we like it a lot.
The cover keyboard and stylus pen take a huge leap on this already great tablet. The first is very well built, with quality materials, and although it’s a bit cramped for its physical size, the keys are well-placed, allowing for easy typing. The touchpad is smaller than those on most laptops, but still allows for two-finger scrolling and pinch-zoom gestures…once you get the hang of it, it accommodates the limits of touch. The overall quality of this case is high and when the tablet attaches magnetically it feels secure. The exterior features nice leather-look materials in a matching shade of green.
Pen – Pointer – Pen is as useful and practical as it is accurate and … fun. It attaches securely to the magnetic top side of the pad and charges wirelessly there. Its use is comfortable and natural, like a regular pencil. We liked the excellent pressure sensitivity. Fun to write, doodle and create with this pen.
Through the introduction, video conferencing is straightforward and to the point. No more allegations. The rear camera works in a decent way, by no means achieving the photos offered by cell phones from a chip equivalent to that of this tablet, i.e. high. We think these cameras, like those in any tablet, are resources for taking photos or videos when there’s no other alternative. But if you can do without it, then almost all the better (we repeat, in general, with all tablets).
What we miss
For starters, a fingerprint reader; It will be appropriate according to the level of this pad. secondly, that Android lacks professional applications for use in professional tablets, such as OnePlus; This, then, is not attributable to the tablet itself, but it’s still a shame.
OnePlus Pad: final conclusions
The OnePlus Pad is a high-end Android tablet, whichever way you look at it. It promises premium design along with amazing technical performance and display quality. And it more than lives up to it, and in no way disappoints in these terms. We have already discussed above that with graphic intensive games you may experience some difficulties on high settings. But we are talking about very specific situations. For normal daily use focused on web browsing, productivity tasks, videos, social networking, etc., this board is more than meets the eye. The high refresh rate of 144Hz provides excellent content fluidity and the speakers generate accurate sound. It is perfect for watching videos in the technical sense, but its 7:5 format is not ideal for them because it generates black bands. Some apps also suffer from…
All this is supported by the wonderful OxygenOS – Android 13, which offers a very easy and friendly use in all aspects, with a strong and stable wireless connection.
If we add to all this a really extended autonomy, along with an impressively fast charge, we are undoubtedly looking at one of the best Android tablets today, at a very competitive price for what it offers.
