Overall it’s light and slim and feels good on the hands but a case will give a better grip on the tablet.
The Realme Pad has a 10.4-inch WUXGA+ display with thick bezels on all sides.
The Realme Pad display is bright with good contrast.
Realme Pad brightness is also quite adequate for outdoors so you won’t find yourself squinting to see what’s on the screen.
The Realme Pad touch response is also good but the screen is a fingerprint magnet which does get quite annoying after a certain point in time.

This is near-stock Android which is great as you don’t get any bloatware and you’re instead treated to a clean UI.
You can still have the suite of Google apps pre-installed on the home screen which you can customise according to your preference.
These include no customisation options for the theme, colours, and app icon size.
