The HCL ME U2 is the latest edition of the ME series and has promising features. It is rightly priced and has very powerful internal specifications. However, the lack of a rear camera can be a put down.
The HCL ME U2 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.. It has a 7-inch multi-touch capacitive touch screen with display size of 800 x 480 pixels.The tablet is powered by a 1GHz Cortex A9 processor and has 1GB DDR3 RAM.
The tablet has 4GB internal memory which is expandable up to 32GB via micro SD card. The ME U2 does not have a rear camera and the front camera is a 0.3 MP VGA suitable for video calling.
I bought this tab on 22nd March and spent full weekend with it awesome product by HCL. Hats off to HCLnnPros : n1. First of all it's really affordable. Bought it from HCL dealer in Rs. 5600.n2. Secondly it do have Google play Store, which is not available in any other tab of HCL.n3. Nice touch experience.n4. Charger quality is really good.n5. Looks really great in black & White combination.n6. 1 GB RAMn7. It has mali 400 GPU, Gaming experience was awesomen8. Build quality gives you premium feel.n9. You can get all these feature/spec in 10k tab.n10. Last but not the least... It is HCL brand with good service networknnnConsn1. Battery backup is only 3 hrs. (with continuous use with games, web browsing)n2. Ear phone isn't at par with tablet. If you use a good quality headset you are going to be amazed by its sound quality.n3. Bluetooth not available.nnAwesome tab with HCL and Google Play Store. Go and get it , it wont disappoint you.nThanks to HCL for this product in this price.nKeep it up.
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.nThe 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.nnGets heated a lot during browsingnnFrequently will fail to wake from the sleep mode, you will have to restart.nnDespite all the hardware specifications you see in paper it fails to perform; lags even while performing the most basic functions.nnSeeing 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.nnI know I can't expect a lot from a 5K tab but this is disappointing.nnI 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.nnNo complaints with flipkart's service. Really fast.nnFinal 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. nnn*** After a month of usage ***nOne 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.nnAfter 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.nnWhile playing video except AVI it will pause (only video, audio will be playing) momentarily. Not a big issue though it's irritating.
