Coming from the Swiss tech giant, Apple, the iPad Mini is still considered to be a worthwhile buy, despite it being launched in September 2021. The A15 bionic chipset is still desirable and fully functional. (For what it’s worth, the 2022 model uses the A14 bionic chipset.) One probable downside / not-so-loved feature is the 8.3” screen, which many deem un-grippable. The fact that this iPad supports the 2nd generation Apple Pencil isn’t lost on consumers. 

Realmi Pad Mini on the other hand was launched on April 2022 with a processor of Unisoc T616 octa-core and produces a strong performance with its IPS LCD screen of 8.7” screen. Taking about downsides, the most apparent one might be people who might have hoped for a more powerful processor, and a higher quality camera, but to be fair this mini tablet retails for 23,999 INR, compared to the other mini tablet which retails for 49,900 INR. Also, we cannot disregard the fact that Apple products are wildly known for their high-quality processors and high-end camera megapixels.
