Excellent service by WS Retail and Flipkart. I have received it in 24 hours time from Delhi to Chennai. Xpad Mini's built quality is good and impressed with its display quality. Sound is on the lower side when compared to Samsung galaxy tab series and simmtronics has done a wonderful job by making this Xpad mini, fully MADE IN INDIA. nnPros:nSize, display, video, touch, processor response, play store.nnNeutral:nCamera, sound (you will get adjusted to these).nnCons:nNo cons, considering the price range.nnReally a nice product. I truly recommend.
Being a mobile/tablet app developer in major 3 platforms (iOS/ android/wp8), i have experiences in using lot of devices. Out of which iPad mini was my favorite, bcoz of its form factor of 7.9 inch. But the device is not affordable. Xpad mini had that feature and was affordable.nGood things:n1. A nearly squarish 7.9 inch - you would love itn2. Bright IPS displayn3. Light weight and handyn4. Close to stock JellybeannnAveragen1. Processor - starts any task slowly and catches up fast ! Nothing to complain anywayn2. Camera - Above average in daylight and below average in lowlight, so on an average, its average :-(n3. Battery - A 2 hour film with wired headset sucked 30% of the battery, but 30 mins of video running loud speakers sucked 40% of the battery. Browsing 1 hour on wifi took 20% of the batteryn4. Performance - Great for the money but still can do better !nnPoor :n1. Quality of headsetn2. Front cameran3. Bluetoothn4. Screen thats susceptible to smudges
After using a month my touch screen is not working ( unable to detect the touch ).ni gone to near service center but no use . service man said to me to contact simmtronics.ni called simmtronics toll-free number so many times and i mailed them about my problem but no response.ni don't know why they give warranty. worst fellowsni buy this product to support indian companies . but now i understood what is result i will get for supporting.
This should be helpful for all who do lot of browsing before deciding on which Tab to buy.nFirst please decide what you want it for. nPROSnLooks very similar to IPAD Mini ! Best Tab in sub 9k range. XPAD Mini has everything for office/student related support like DOC,PPT, Excel spreadsheet, PDF viewer. Reasonably good battery backup (4-5 hrs at least under continues use. HDMI works fine and can be connected to HD TVs for all media play backs. It plays almost every formats, Audio/Video, available today and not many tabs has this facility. OTG cable can be used for connecting a pen drive or a Mouse or a key board. GPS connectivity good. Viewing at an angle is also very good. Very smooth touch screen and no lagging for all above mentioned activities. It has a screen guard installed on it .PLEASE Do not remove it and use it till it lasts ! From the market, IPAD mini's screen guard can be used as no custom one available for this. For gaming, please refer other reviews as not fully exploited it.nnCONS-nPlease don't buy it by looking at for camera specifications !! OR read it as 2/3 MP back and VGA front. Headphone quality not good. While using other headphones, sound quality is very good with good equalizer/ presets. nI would have rated it 4.5 stars if Simmtronics had given correct camera specifications !
The review is limited to the product and does not pertain to flipkart shopping.nThe product seems to attract good attention for reviews nBut i had faced twice hanging of the device. and had to reset to revive the XPAD.nRecommend not to buy..there are better options with google nexus available, if one is spend 30% more.nnAlso 3G via dongle is a limitation as 2G is not supported and 3G prices are yet to come down to acceptable levels..Not all devices are compatible and only limited no# of devices are allowed for data connectivity.
