Realme Pad

The refresh rate to be able to enjoy a much smoother experience is also affected, since the Xiaomi Pad 5 has a refresh rate at 120 Hz , while the Realme Pad maintains 60 Hz.

The quality of the panel in this case would be in the background , since both are built on the same technology, so the colors that they would show would be similar . Logically, each manufacturer has its own configuration, but this should not be a problem.

Video calls and accessories
