    Hello and thanks for the informative article. I've shortlisted the tablet for my daughter, but I'm not sure if she can use it to watch Netflix. Do you know more about this? LG Tamara

    Hi Tamara, as far as I know, the realme Pad Mini supports Widevine L1, so films from Netflix and other streaming providers can be streamed in HD resolution.
