Overall: I bought the Lava Ivory E Tablet as a learning toy for my kid as interestingly enough, most other educational toys were actually more expensive than it and did less than the tablet. So this review is for the perspective education tool rather than a smart gadget.
Design and build
The Ivory E Tab is quite plain and simple looking aside for the dual tone back. However, the large bezels on the front have an unexpected upside in the fact that there is enough space to stick some colourful stickers. The tablet is pretty light weight and can be held comfortably by children. The tablet has been dropped countless times and been held by greasy and dirty hands, but there hasn t been much damage to the tablet except some scratches and dings.
Hardware and software
The Ivory comes with a 1.3 Ghz dual core Mediatek processor and 1 Gb of Ram that run Android 4.2 Jelly bean OS. The older version of android doesn t actually matter to me as it is being used by my kid. The games and apps being run on the device are quite simple and run without a hitch. I am using a microsd card with the tablet as the 4 GB internal memory of the phone is definitely not enough for a device such as this.
Display and multimedia
The 7 inch display of the tablet is almost perfect for toddlers. The resolution of the screen is also pretty good and it is a simple job of putting on Frozen or cartoons on YouTube and i get peace and quiet for at least 2 hours. the display quality is quite colourful and viewing angles are quite decent. The speaker quality is quite nice and clear.
Value for money
The best part about the Ivory E tab is without a doubt the low price of the tablet. Instead of buying one or two expensive educational toys, i simply bought the tablet and i get a ton of educational and entertainment toys in one. Not only that, even if it does get spoilt, getting a new one isn t that big of a deal. Although I would suggest that you also buy a case and a screen guard for the device.
