OnePlus Pad Go: Competition
The OnePlus Pad Go mainly competes with the Redmi Pad and the Realme Pad 2 in India. Both of these tablets sport the same Processor under the OnePlus Pad Go hood – the MediaTek Helio G99. However, the Redmi Pad has a cheaper price tag, at Rs 17,999 for the top-end 6GB + 128GB model, while there are even lower models having a cheaper price.
Aside from the lower RAM and storage, the Redmi Pad has the same specifications as the OnePlus Pad Go. The Realme Pad 2, on the other hand, starts at Rs 19,999 for the 6GB + 128GB model and Rs 22,999 for the 8GB + 256GB trim. Both these models come with LTE. With a Rs 1,000 cheaper price tag, the Realme Pad 2 offers users a smoother 120Hz panel and a bigger 8340mAh battery, making it more valuable for money than the OnePlus Pad Go.
