The budget tablet market in India is currently flooded with plenty of options, but most of them are from manufacturers such as Samsung and Lenovo. These products offer enough power to get the basic job done and nothing more as their focus is generally on offering a big display with a big battery, but not so much on performance. There is clearly a market for these budget machines and the recent pandemic has turned tablets from being just portable media consumption devices to essential learning tools for education, a means of video conferencing, and so on.
The Oppo Pad Air is the brand's first tablet entry in the Indian market. Oppo takes a budget approach with this one and focuses on quality instead of performance, making it into a tablet that is built for media consumption more than anything else.
Build quality with the metal unibody design feels quite solid and the designer plastic strip around the back gives it a nice touch. The 10.63-inch display isn’t the brightest we have seen, but gets the job done indoors.
Oppo has used a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC which is also found in some budget smartphones and it offers good enough performance while driving the large display when it comes to software, but just gets the job done when it comes to heavy 3D games.
Battery life is quite solid and charging speeds are average. Camera performance is below average and the same applies to video recording.
