Oppo Pad Air test: a first simple and practical tablet

Oppo is all in all classic in its choices. The device is equipped with a 10.38-inch screen, which allows it to be compact enough to be transported during the day, and used for example to take notes. It is an LCD panel – the Oled remains reserved for high-end tablets – displaying the standard batch of slates between 10 and 12 inches: 1200 x 2400 pixels. This results in a very decent 225 dpi resolution. On the other hand, no frills here: the manufacturer does not announce any specific screen protection, which requires the use of a cover during transport, and its refresh rate is fixed at 60 Hz, the standard rate. It is therefore not a device designed for gaming, at least by current standards.

The Oppo Pad lacks a little brightness, but keeps its promises: the brand announces 360 cd / m², and we found under our probes a maximum brightness of 363 cd / m². The Apple and Realme models are more around 450 cd / m², and that of Oppo will be more comfortable indoors than in direct sunlight.
The device makes up for it with a correct contrast of 1296:1, higher than that of its competitors, and with a satisfactory calibration. By opting for the “warm colors” setting, i.e. by moving the slider available in the screen settings to its maximum, the color temperature is established at 6624 K and the delta E at 2 ,7. The drifts are therefore imperceptible to the eye. We recommend that you perform this little manipulation, the colors being too cold when the default settings are active (7720 K, far from the 6500 K reference), and the delta E climbing to 3.3.

Finally, there is a minimum brightness of 2.1 cd / m², suitable for use in the dark, a suitable tactile delay of 96 ms and an afterglow of 17 ms, again very correct.
