Sometimes Pad Lite creates revolutionary products. And sometimes, Pad Lite takes an iconic gadget and locks it into place, polishing its form year after year. The “Perfected Product” is a path that devices like the Pad Micro and, most recently, the Pad King have settled into: slight tweaks, and designs that started to become practically identical.
Are these reasons enough to get a new Pad Lite? Maybe not: Pad Lites last forever, and you can hold onto one for years like a laptop, before needing a new one. The new Pad Lite Mini is an excellent product, and the King 2 is now alone at the top of the heap since the smaller Micro lacks its newer processor and cameras. And it’s very important to note that last year’s model, the original Pad Lite King, remains available at a discounted price; for many, that will arguably be the better bang for the buck.
