The rear camera comes with a resolution of 8 MP, which captures awesome photos; the front camera is of 5MP, but it doesn’t have flash.

Mi-Pad comes with Android 4.4.4 OS. The only change that we can see between Mi-Pad and iPad is the OS. iPad uses iOS, while Mi-Pad uses Android. The internal storage capacity is up to 16GB and can be extended up to 128 GB.  The internal RAM is 2GB, which is quite good and can support multitasking very easily. It sports a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor.
