    Xiaomi Pad 5 vs Motorola Tab G70 LTE: The Xiaomi Pad 5 has launched in India and it already seems like an unchallenged winner! For less than Rs. 30,000, the Xiaomi Pad 5 brings some insane specs to the table as well as some big features that could even put the base 10.1-inch iPad to shame. In the world of Android tablets, we haven’t seen such a well-specced tablet in a long time. We have the Pad 5 for review and we will deliver our verdict on it soon.

    However, another tablet launched not long ago had left us impressed with its value for money proposition.

And, if you are spending almost Rs. 25,000 on an Android tablet, you are likely to be confused as to choose between these.

    Hence, we take a look at their specs and help you pick the right one.
