Lava Etab Xtron lying in the price range of Rs. 6,000 to 8,000, possesses the most efficient features of a new age device. So, if you are looking for a tablet with latest features at an affordable price then its a must buy for you. But if you are looking for some alternative in the same price range then you can also consider the newly launched HCL Me U2 tablet.
Lava has complemented the Etab Xtron with a 7-inch with an IPS Multi-touch display which bears a display resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. It runs on Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system. In order to make the tablet powerful, Lava has provided it with a 1.5GHz Dual-core Cortex A9 processor along with 1GB of RAM and a Mali-400 GPU.
The other features of the Etab Xtron includes a 2-megapixel front facing camera, an 8GB Internal Memory which may be further expanded up to 32GB via Micro SD Card.
On the connectivity front, the Etab Xtron includes USB, 3G and Wi-Fi as its features. It has been fueled with a 3500 mAh battery.
| HARDWARE |:-: Talking about the Lava Xtron+’s hardware, the tablet boasts a dual core Cortex A9 CPU with each core clocked at 1.5Ghz and a Mali 400 Quad Core GPU. nWell, for the proof of graphics power, see the most helpful review here ,63.9 fps in nenamark, and the most important thing according to me, RK3066 IS THE BEST LAST GEN GAMING CHIPSET BETTER THAN TEGRA 3 ,The RK3066 is a high performance Cortex A9 Dual Core mobile processor similar to the Samsung Exynos 4 Dual Core chip. In terms of performance, the RK3066 is between the Samsung Exynos 4210 and the Samsung Exynos 4212....I am a true geek and after searching for 20+ hours came to a conclusion that this is the best piece of android till 12-13k,(except Lumia 520 but it is windows)..it has Quad core Mali 400, clocked at 250 MHz supporting Open GL ES 2.0, Open VG 1.1 support, 9 GFLOPS...EVEN FASTER THAN NVIDIA GEFORCE ULP 12nn| BATTERY | :-:Coming on to battery, When I opened the battery stats page I find that Cell standby had consumed nearly 60% of the battery.WHAT!? Cell standby is the battery used by radio cells for mobile networks. This tablet DOES NOT have cell radio! The engineers working on this tablet didn't even bother to setup the OS properly and instead chose to simply download Android 4.2, flashed it in the tablet and have put it up on sale.nThe Flipkart page reports the battery capacity to be 3,700mAh, which is probably wrong since the official specifications page on Lava’s website reports it to be only 3,000mAh. I can't be sure..nnAIRPLANE MODE IS NOT COMPLETELY WORKING DUE TO DEFECTIVE DRIVERS (CELL RADIO DRIVERS ARE PRESENT IN THIS TAB SO IT SEARCHES FOR DRIVERS CONTINUOUSLY AND FUC*S BATTERY UP!)nn| SCREEN |:-:The front of the Lava Xtron+ holds a 7-inch sharp IPS LCD display having a resolution of 1024 x 600. It’s a bright screen and with a pixel density of 170 PPI, it is pretty sharp too. The best part about the display is that, despite being an LCD screen, it’s not a battery consuming monster. I always found its battery usage to be lower than processes. The screen is prone to scratches though and is highly reflective.nnNOW THE MOST IMPORTANT THING HERE ROOTING (one more time) ROOTING!nHere is the method tested by me...nFirst of all , I am not responsible if it bricks your device.(Don't come complaining if it does!)nnHERE IS THE COMPLETE GUIDE MADE BY ME WITH ROOTING, CWM AND CUSTOM ROM AFTER 20+ HOURS OF SEARCHINGnnhttp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2708716nnand now how to fix battery:-:nnGet root explorer open system/app and rename phone .apk and telephonesomething.apk to phone.bak and telephonysomething.bak, you are good to go..nnI had waited and checked price for everyday for the past month and bought when the price got to 5000, now, value is unbearable, polish, hardware, battery and everything is so awesome it almost brought me to tears of joy!nthe only con that I could find is that less games are supported than Tegra 3 still, next gen games should be supported most probably..nnEDIT: OTG cable works with pendrives (don't have external hdd), and there is no way of getting official USB drivers I am not even able to set "ADB" up, and charger is last gen..but I don't have a problem with it as long as it doesn't create any problems, Just checked Wifi, works flawlessly |note|: is it my first use of wifi so no comparison...OMG I left one thing out We can enable the biggest part of pc gaming in android nnow, i.e 4xMSAA in settings, I have also been able t install CWM (Pros already jumped out of their seats) by using arc tools and a generic rk3066 recovery which was also downloaded by arc tools apknnPLEASE HIT THUMBS UP AS EVERYBODY WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE
I got this tablet and it exceeded all my expectations. For people who dont know Nenamark2 is a benchmark test to test GPU performance i.e how the tablet performs in real world Gaming. Samsung Galaxy S4 scores 60 FPS,Galaxy TAB 2 scores 36 FPS, Nexus 7 scores 56 FPS and this BEAST scored 64 FPSnnQUADRANT Benchmark was GREATER than Nexus 7 as well.nnNo Lags at all amazing look ( aluminium on back ) looks Great and POSH in hands. nnResolved Concs. nn- Some of the users say product came with lots of scratches : Yep its true it has a little scratches on it BUT the scratch is NOT ON THE TABLET its on the pre Coated SCREEN GUARD not on the TABLET. You can remove screen guard and can put a new one if you want. nnn- Youtube issues :- Well I don't know maybe Lava has resolved it because mine it did not came with any youtube app. I downloaded it from App store and it worked. For those who say its not working try updating your tablet or go to a LAVA service center. nnn- Display :- Its great if you hold it correctly AMAZING DISPLAY ( 10/10 ), If you tilt a little you wont feel any difference its amazing thanks to IPS. But if you completely tilt it Display goes a little bad ( 7.5/10 ) but considering the price 10/10. nnConcs :- nn- Speaker Quality is very poor although you can use earphones/headphones to enhance Volume and BEATS. nn- No Bluetooth nn- No Sim ( But supports 3G via dongle you can connect it through OTG cable came as in box accessories )nn- Bad Camera but its OK ( Does The Job )nnOK now the most important part people are complaining about its Battery Life... I too had it but I rectified the problem and solved it. You need to turn ON the airplane mode, by default its off and in status it always say searching for signals ( Sim Signals ) No Signals Found and in Battery status it says that it consumes about 60% of battery as it does not have any sim and it keeps on FORCING it to search for signals consumes a lot of battery. nnSolution :- Turn on airplane mode ( it blocks sim ) not only Battery will Double up but also Charging time will be about a LOtttt Faster than before. You can do it by pushing the drop down menu and hit airplane symbol so simple as that :)nnProsnn- Excellent Hardware,No Lags, ULTRA GAMER TAB, Build Quality is GREAT probably the best 7 inch tab Built Quality I have seen till now and rest all for what a TAB should be. nnnI AM GOING TO ORDER 1 MORE RIGHT NOW
