Xiaomi please don't copycat Samsung by taking out the IR port, that's an essential feature for many tech savvy users.
You will sell a lot more devices if the IR port is builtin.
it is pretty disappointing
here is what I expected from a tablet:
9.7" display with high resolution
It should be light. 380 gr was good as it was rumored for mi pad 3 pro
Core M processor not those Z8750 series which are weaker
256 GB hard drive & 8 GB RAM
micro SD slot
Windows 10 OS
USB type C port
10-12 hours battery life
very light keyboard which can used as cover too
Then I think that would be a really portable tablet
I think microsoft surface book , Samsung galaxy book , asus Transformer book t300 chi are good as hybrid laptop but a pure tablet
Generally speaking it is not bad, but as CPU it gives the impression that it will be relatively slow. It would be better if they used the SD625 at least. And the display could be at least a FHD. But finally everything will depends on the price tag

Why are you degrading it to a MediaTek pie... moreThis SOC doesn't seam that bad, It should have the power with the 2 a72 cores pull battery life the 4 a53 It has AC wifi dual band plus the GPU can support a higher res display. It benches higher than the SD 625. The SOC should be fine for everything the only thing bad about could be the battery life. As it is on the 28nm process. The ASUS ZenPad 3S uses it already look it up

Oh man.... Intel and Nvidia chips were excellent... Why are you degrading it to a MediaTek piece of crap?
Xiaomi mipad downgraded over the time not upgraded ... I have mipad 1 and it the best and stronges one of the series
It doesnt looks bad but i am missing here something.
And many users missing something even more.
definitely tab 4. reason: tab 4 has snapdragon processor and mi pad 3 has mediatek processor. who da hell would buy a mediatek processor tablet? plus tab 4 is also cheaper.:)
lenovo tab 4 8 plus is going launch on May, compare to this Mi Pad 3, which is better?
300 USD for MTK tablet? Are you kidding? Xiaomi mi pad 2 is by far, a better option. 64GB version costs around 180 euro and has dual OS.
BN, 01 Apr 2017You mean, I must pay more than double the expected price, of the high end version of the upcom... moreIf a thing is too good to be good it is bad. Take for example electric cars. Though it is technically feasible to mass produce electric cars no one would do that just because it would spoil world oil economy. This will be feasible only when the world's oil wells dry out. Talk to some Product and Marketing Management guys to know more about these concepts. Take Titan watches. If a particular model of their watches becomes a hot seller they will simply discontinue them just because it would cannibalize their other models. Everything cannot be dealt with here. I end up just by saying only one thing. Think twice before you spend your hard earned money.

S3 9.7. It has got all the features as you ask for... moreYou mean, I must pay more than double the expected price, of the high end version of the upcoming Mi Pad 3, for LTE connectivity in Samsung Galaxy Tab S3?
Xiaomi could instead charge upto 100 US $ more (than the price that is expected currently) on the high end version of the Mi Pad 3 (Pro version, I mean) and make it a complete device.
That would have been such a great option - that is, 2 models for the pad in total - A $230 base model and a $400 ($310 (currently expected price) + say, $90 extra) complete/near complete set of specs on the higher end model (LTE enabled Pro version). That would have been affordable, great choice for those who demand more from a tablet. Plus, I don't think it would strain Xiaomi's finances. And, I also do not think Xiaomi is technically incapable of achieving it. They could very well do it and make a device that would be remembered for long in the history of technology.
No, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is not worth it. It does not have Windows and it is quite a bit slower.

S3 9.7. It has got all the features as you ask for. But honestly you shouldn't compare the price since you want more. If you want more pay more.
xiaomi, let intel core M3-7Y30 not be forgotten. xiaomi is supposed to create advanced Pad.
