"I have been using this over the past 3 days. Here is my review.nnPros:nn1. Overall Configuration is great.n2. First tab in the world to be boxed with a Jellybean.n3. It supports Google Play Store.n4. Internal space of around 1.5Gb is dedicated for downloads from play store.nAlso around 800 Mb of it is like user space.n5. Charges pretty fast around 2 hours max for a huge 4500mAh battery. Also battery lasts long around 6+ hours till now.n6. The tab does not heat up when you play games or even browse net via wi-fi for hours.n7. It has support for connecting a dongle like MTS since it does not have sim facility for GPRS.n8. The screen size is good enough to read books, browse and play good games.n9. Games work out of the box - Temple Run, FL Commando, POP Classic were some of the high end games I played and it plays flawlessly.n10. It has USB OTG support. So it means you can connect your pen drives to the cable provided in the box to browse and even watch movies present inside your pen drive.n11. It supports enough number of formats. Plz install MXplayer with codec support from Play store to run different formats.n12. The shutdown time of the tab is less than 5 seconds and the start up time is like 25 to 30 seconds. Make sure you reduce the number of home screens and the widgets on your home screens. Also remove automatic adding of widgets from your google play settings.n13. The audio is loud enough to watch a film happily. Also you can connect your speakers to the stereo jack as an optional source of sound.n14. The graphics card provided is from the US company called Vivante. It is good and in fact a great competitor for Mali cards provided by ARM.n15. It has a dual GPU which should support lots of high end games and also a 1.5 Ghz dual core cortex 9 processor is an added advantage.n16. Stand by time is around a day or more. Could not test this properly.n17. It has ethernet support. So if you have a USB modem you can connect it to the tab via UTG support n connect to the internet directly with no router for a wi fi.n18. Connecting a keyboard or a mouse with the tab is easy. So mounting the tab and you can work some projects or even write some source code.n19. I use a Sennheiser earphone. The sound quality with it was wonderful for this tab.n20. Supports bluetooth - so sharing is simplified. Also you can use wifi direct functionality.nnCon(s):nn1. You dont need a mirror!!! Yes the screen I think has an added layer which reflects your own face - it becomes difficult to read and write in bright sunlight or even when the background light is more.n2. A small dust particle is embedded b/w these 2 screens in my tablet which is kinda irritation when you observe it keenly.n3. It does not have calling facility. Also its not comfortable to speak with a 8 inches tablet across your face. Unless you use a bluetooth headset.nnI bought this tab for a price less than stated here in Flipkart.nnSince this is one of the first tablets to come with a 8 inches screen - getting a screen guard or a cover is difficult.nnHopefully if flipkart could provide it for the extra bucks they are charging here and also if they could provide some earphones or a bluetooth headset it would be great.nnHope you liked the review.nnIts a great product for every amount of Rupee you pay on it.nnEnjoy."
I bought this tab the next day of its release which was 31st December from other site on 1st Jan . I was just surfing for new tablets and phones and as soon as I found this, I was simply amazed by its specs.... The dual core a9 processor, the 1 gb ram, 8 inch screen with 1024*768 resolution and the list went on.. As I already own a Atrix HD I did not need this for calling.... Now after around 3 weeks of rigorous usage I am writing this review.... It's score on AnTuTu is higher even than SGS2 at 9216 while SGS2 has a score of 8463.... nComing to Pros and Cons...nnPROS:n1. 1.5 GHz Dual Core Cortex A9 Processor (the same which is in SGS2)n2. 1GB RAM (all other tabs in this range have 512MBn3. Dual Core Mali-400 GPUn4. 8 inch screen with high 1024*768 resolution with capacitive touchn5. Jelly Bean 4.1.1n6. High Capacity 4500 mAh batteryn7. 3.15 MP Primary Cam with a VGA Secondary Camn8. App Compatibility is very high (contrary to beliefs that 4:3 screens have low compatibility)n9. High scores in benchmarks.n10. Handled every game and tasks well (I played the latest NFS Most Wanted on it without any hiccup)n11. USB OTG Support and Mini-HDMI Support (it even supports my 1 TB Seagate Backup Plus)n12. 1080p videos play like butter in MX Player.nnCONS:n1. Touch is somewhat finickyn2. The Primary 3.15 MP Cam disappoints.n3. It is quite heavyc4. Only 1.51 GB of internal storage (although it can be expanded via SDCard)n5. Screen is quite reflective in bright sunlightnnAlso I have rooted my tab and those complaining about internal memory (or internal sd card) not being expendable, they are false as the external sd card can be swapped with internal sd card but this method only works after rooting. After this you can install any large game or app. The link for the procedure is http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2105692
