Overall User Rating (3.4 Out of 5 based on 222 ratings)
Overall: Poor display quality : I know what to expect from a 800X480 pixel screen, I'm not talking about that; but the color and contrast really sucks. If you buy this never look at the display of any other tab, you will really regret.
The display will only keep the correct aspect ratio in landscape mode, if you tilt it to portrait mode everything will get stretched, icons, photos all.
Gets heated a lot during browsing
Frequently will fail to wake from the sleep mode, you will have to restart.
Despite all the hardware specifications you see in paper it fails to perform; lags even while performing the most basic functions.
Seeing the 4GB internal memory I thought I can install all the applications I want, but that's not the reality, only 400MB is available for applications.
I know I can't expect a lot from a 5K tab but this is disappointing.
I was comparing micromax infinity P275 with this but fell for this for looks, yes it looks really nice considering the price; but I think micromax would have been a better choice.
No complaints with flipkart's service. Really fast.
Final verdict: If you can extend your, budget go for samsung galaxy Tab2 P311, it really worth for the 4K you pay extra. GPS, Blutooth, A decent camera, Dual Core processor, 16GB inbuilt memory and good quality earphones most of all a real tab. <br>
*** After a month of usage ***
One of the motive behind buying tab was I need a device which stay ON always so that I don't have to boot up my PC for even the most basic computing needs. But with this no use, daily I have to restart at least 4 times else it wil hang and won't perform anything.
After some continues usage like FB or browsing have to go to app manager so that the tab will free its internal memory else internal memory will become full and will in turn make the tab too slow.
While playing video except AVI it will pause (only video, audio will be playing) momentarily. Not a big issue though it's irritating.
