We are working our way through the tests necessary for the Xiaomi Pad 6S Pro 12.4 review and we just completed the battery trials. The slate smoked the older and smaller Pad 6 and while it’s far from the longest lasting tablet that we’ve tested, it does well against comparable rivals.

The tablet is equipped with a 10,000mAh battery that needs to feed not only the 12.4” 144Hz display – an IPS LCD with Dolby Vision and 12-bit colors that bucks the OLED trend – but the battery also has to power the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Compared to the larger and more premium Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra (11,200mAh, 14.6” OLED, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2), the Xiaomi pad lasts an hour longer when browsing the web, has equal performance for streaming video and loses by about an hour in the gaming test.

The Honor Pad 9 is comparable in size (12.1” display) and also uses an IPS LCD, which has a different power draw from OLED. It does have a different class of chipset (Snapdragon 6 Gen 1) and the 8,300mAh battery is noticeably smaller. The Honor comes up short in both the web and video tests and its mid-range chip really struggles in the gaming portion.

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 is a premium alternative with a 13.2” OLED display and comparable 10,100mAh battery, though with the odd Kirin 9000S chipset. It’s odd because it is a modern design, but restricted access to foundries limited Huawei to an old 7nm node. It does well on video decoding, but the more active tests (web browsing and gaming) are quite tough on the MatePad.

By the way, the Xiaomi Pad 6S Pro 12.4 ships with a 120W adapter, which promises to get to 45% charge in just 10 minutes, a full charge takes 35 minutes. This is based on official numbers, but we’re working on getting an independent measurement. That and a few other things need to be completed before the full review is ready.
