Overall: I have had this tab for quite a few days back and here is my unbiased review of the same : The other contenders were :Sony Experia Z tablet,Samsung Galaxy Tab,iPad and iPad Mini. . Pitted against it`s rivals,the figures are as follows : Cost :A fantastic tab if you are on a budget and also want something good (Way better than the other contenders in many aspects).........(9.5/10) Looks :Fantastic looks with a metallic finish (No buttons on the front panel give it a very sharp,smooth and professional look)........(9/10) Screen :Looks good,crisp display and also has that "rich" look.Also has a power management app.........(8/10) Performance :Though it lacks a high end processor,but still manages to perform smoothly,handling multiple tasks at the same time..........(7/10) Battery :One word-Awesome !!! The others don`t even come close.........(9.5/10) Storage and interface :Massive expandable memory (64GB) and OTG Cable interface make work a whole lot easier (Just have an anti-virus installed)..........(9/10) Camera :Though the camera is of average quality,it can still produce some very nice pictures........(7.5/10) Multimedia features :The kick stand feature is not only unique but also practical and helpful (Specially in viewing documents or watching movies)............(8/10) Audio and video :The stock speakers are not so loud but still have a decent sound quality with DOLBY app.Sounds awesome on headphones,earphones or Bluetooth speakers.Also supports almost all video formats unlike it`s contenders (Great for movie lovers)..........(8/10) Connectivity :Wi-Fi,bluetooth and OTG cable allow you to connect to almost anything...........(9/10) Troubleshooting :Some of the users complained about stuck sim cards.Remedy for the same :Take your micro sim and pick out a spot that has the plastic end.Take a pin of the thinnest quality and using a gas torch heat it,make a fine hole and pass a fine thread through it.So if your sim gets stuck,you can just press it and simply pull it out like it was any other tab or phone (Just take extreme caution while making the hole). . Final verdict :An awesome budget tablet that outperforms it`s bigger rivals and even many high-end smartphones.For the people who travel a lot,just pair it up with decent accessories and it can even replace your laptop.Except for a few minor issues,this tablet can even give it`s bigger rivals quite a run for their money. .
