    Would you buy it instead of the Xiaomi Mi Pad? The Mi Pad has the same
    processor, same memory, +- same screen dimensions but a much higher
    resoltution (2048 x 1536) and, most likely, a bit cheaper…
    PS4 and
    Xbox One are on a different league, this is more of a portable game
    console, and for that, it sure beats the likes of PSP Vita / Nintendo DS
