Immediately after I placed the order, I started regretting that maybe it wont be good and I shud hav invested more and bought a samsung tab instead.nBut when I first layed hands on it i was surprised by the build quality and forgot all my apprehensions. My friend has a HCL tablet which is costlier than this but looks way cheaper with crappy construction.nBut this looks solid. Obviously not as good as the high end ones but it has absolutely no moving parts or squeaky buttons.nI coupled it with a 32gb class4 transcend card which is working fine. As soon as I connected it to the wifi it synced all my mails and calendar and I was good to go. Kudos to android 4 for thatnLet me quickly list the pros and consnPros:n1. Preloaded content= awesome. Lets u start experiencing the tab from the very first time u switch it on.n2. No lagging what so ever in hd playback. Din't check bluray yet.n3. Volume output when coupled with my sennheiser babies rocked, though the bundled headphones were pathetic.n4. Skype=working.n5. Touch response = super smooth.n6. Icecream Sandwhich rocks.n7. Detected my wifi without any hiccups.n8. Finally, unbeatable pricing.nnCons:n1. Screen brightness is not so good. Definitely not usable in broad daylight. n2. Resolution : not so good. can definitely see tiny grains.n3. I used tata photon twice. First time it worked for 5 min and hanged. The second time also it hanged. Have to check on that.n4. I tried to read a book, Alice in wonderland, but got headache after 10 min. Maybe its just me.nnFinally, if u don't want to spend upwards of 20k for a tab, but want to get the job done, go for it. U wont regret buying it.nNone of my friends after playing with it cud believe that it cost only 5500.
Amazed to see the tablet is so good for the price. Worth it…… Here is another positive review for this E tab…..nIce-Cream sandwich (ICS) is Delicious………………….. Good packaging unlike Micromax Funbook..which reminds you "YES it’s a Cheap tablet". But not this one..........nFirst I’ll start with something that came to me as surprise…… I connected my 4 GB Kingston DT Pen Drive and the tablet was able to acess all the data and play it as well…….nWANT MORE ???nYou can also use a Ethernet (the one you use at home) to use internet on your tablet but you need to buy a usb to lan cable for that.nDongle Connectivity: I was disappointed after reading the reviews about dongle connectivity issues. But my MTS AC 2766 dongle worked fine with this tab. Though its not listed in the supported dongles list. So yes… its supports all major dongles…Majorly Tata Photon, Reliance & MTS. nThere are very few cons compared to the pros which you can neglect because of the price you are getting for. Right ??nTouch Experience : Super smooth soft, Very sensitive (you don’t need to touch the screen completely) and quite responsive also.nLooks: Looks & Design are Great….the grey colour is awesome….. Quite Slim and sturdy. Build quality is also very good . It does not look like a cheap one. However, the physical keys could have been a bit better.nSound: The in-built speakers are also good. Quite loud. The Ear phones are loud and clear but without bass.nVideo playback: Played all my lapton’s Full HD videos well and without any lag. Supported all major formats including .mkv. Also but not Flv. But can download software for that. So no issues.nNow. Lets talk abot the screen: Low Resolution. So dont expect HD videos to be crystal clear & sharp. But come on, see the price also.nBrightness is ok. You get three selections.nCamera: Is not bad in day light.nBattery back-up: Hmm…. Havent fully tested but battery backup is ok ok(Thik-Thak). This should have been better. And takes time to charge also. One star deducted for this. Stand by time is not bad.nNote: You cannot remove the battery on this one. Because you cant open the back cover. But don’t worry it does not mean , the tablets will get useless after some year. You can get the battery replace from LAVA. The Lava customer care told me so.nThe Tablet is manufactured in China and not India. But that’s cool….Even our Nokia & major mobiles brands , Laptops and a whole lot of electronics are manufactured in China these days….nSome useful Apps that you get out of the box are….nFlash Player, Adobe Reader, Mobile Office, some games like tic tac toe, chess, Sudoku, minesweeper etc. and much more.nThe Pre loaded content is nice because you can test and use your device straight away as soon as you get it. nNow some useful tips & information:n• Only ICS Compatible Tata Docomo Photon Plus Dongles will work on the tab.n• This tab is meant to be used only for 3 G networks and not 2 G. The tablet might hang on 2 G. And if our 3G dongle is working very slow than also the tablet could hang.n• The Tata Photon Plus offer is not Pre Paid. Its Postpaid. And of course available in Select Cities. So check on that.n• If you have purchased the tablet and want the user manual then you can download it from the home page of lava mobiles by clicking on etab link. The web site that lava has mentioned on the warranty card of this tab is not working.nnInitially, I was a bit confused between this one and Swipe 3D tab but on seeing the review I found its good for everything but not 3D. So found E-Tab more suitable. And Lava is not a bad company also.I feel this tablet is the best provided the price is available for. I personally feel its better than its competitors like I Berry,Fun book, Smart tab,zync,zen etc….nThe LAVA E- TAB is the best you can get at the moment out of a Budget Tab without missing out on anyone and some extra features like graphics but without an HDMI output. But you cannot expect everything out of this baby for such a price.. Aur waise bhi kuch pane ke liye kuch to khona padega na dost??nnRecommendation: It does not come with a screen guard or protector.So I would suggest you to order a Screen Guard and a Mo Life Pouch from Flip Kart along with the tab. You can use screen guard for BB Playbook from brands like Rainbow and nCase. It will work on this tab and are not expensive at all. nnThank You for reading my review. Go FlipKart your Lava E-Tab and flaunt it. Ha ha…. Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!
