The Funbook tablets are known for being affordable yet high on specs, and the P255 is no exception. Coming with nice features like a decent display, dual cameras, good connectivity and a great battery, the Funbook P255 is surely another well-deserved feather in Micromax's cap. However, Micromax could have perfected this achievement by providing at least 8GB of internal memory. That said, this device can still be considered as ideal for anyone seeking a budget tablet with great specs.
Design and Configuration
The latest tablet in the Funbook series sports a 7 inches WVGA (480 x 800 pixels resolution) display, with 16M colour depth for a breathtaking visual experience. The device runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. A 1200MHz Cortex-A8 processor is paired with 512MB of RAM to ensure decent performance even under moderate stress. For gamers, Micromax has provided this tablet with the Mali-400 GPU.
Camera and Storage
Rear cameras are not common in budget tablets, but Micromax has provided the P255 with a 2MP rear camera, in addition to the 0.3MP front camera. This ensures that both video chatting as well as decent photography can be carried out with this device. Internal storage is 4GB (1.15GB free storage), and can be expanded using microSD card up to a limit of 32GB.

Hi guys. This tab has forced me to write a review here. I have gone through many tab (Availble in flipkart) videos in YouTube and last landed on this. Bought with little panic as it has very low reviews. But am happy and relaxed. Not making this lengthy.. Will tell its pros and cons.nnPros:nn1. Dual camera. ( Front cam ok for skype calling. Cant expect more from a 0.3 MP camera. Back 2MP camera is what i found exciting for budget tab. If you are a traveller, wife and children is at home, and want to show them some scenic beauty LIVE.. its the best. I connected wifi in tab and did skype video call to my PC. To be frank, the video quality showing in PC was more than i expected.. NICE QUALITY AND GOOD FRAME RATE..(No lag) Awesome..nn2. Touch screen: Superb touch. Little lag while downloading/updating some app/games from internet. After downloading.. super smooth.nn3. Good battery backup: Did Skype video call, Wifi was On, Pendrive connected, Played HD movies, Played 3d games (Temple run and Subway surfers), Browsed internet and the running time was 3.8 hrs with 11% of battery to be drained. Means you will get 4hrs of running time when full battery goes off.nn4. Playing 3D Games: You can play 3D games without any lags. Temples run, Subway surfers etc worked fine and smooth. Nice they have Mali GPUnn5. Playing HD movies: No lag, good clarity.. fast forward without lag..nn6. Pendrive connectivity: Yesnn7. 3G dongles: In description they have mentioned only TATA Docomo. But it does suppport MTS and Reliance Netconnect also. I have connected my Reliance Netconnect+ ZTE AC2736.. worked like charmnn8. Internet: After fully loading page.. smooth scroll up and down. No probs. Youtube works fine, google maps, gps,gmail etc.nnThese would be the main things users look when buying a budget tab. Hope i have cleared all.nnCons:nn1. While charging, you can't connect pendrive/3G dongle as both are in same slotnn2. Touch little laggy while downloading/updating apps/games. ( I dont think this as negative when looking all Pros above ). Common guys..its a budget tabnn3. Internal space 1.15. But if going for 4GB internal storage tabs under Rs 4500, some other cons will be there. Better to use an SD card for storing movies.nnHope this review will help future buyers to clear confusions.nnThanks flipkart for fast shipping and nice packing.
its pretty good in specs......n* 1.2 ghz single core(this should have been a dual core)n* 512 mb RAM (not bad...but not good for gaming)n* internal storage 1.15 gb (what happened micromax...from 4 gb to 1 gb !!)n* graphics mali-400 2d/3d (thats plus point but this would work better with dual core processor)n* 480x800 resolution on a 7 inch screen (pls micromax increase the pixels)n* 2 mp primary camera and 0.3 mp front cameran* full HD video playback (thats good)n* a 2600 mAh battery......net browsing around 4 hrs and overall it has to be charged in less than a day.........heavy users would need to charge it twice (micromax pls increase the battery)nnoverall a decent tab at 5000 INR........its a typical micromax product as it has impressive specs in cheap price.......but i think it should have a better battery life(around 6 or 7 hrs of nte surfing)nnthis tab is made for indian customers......good specs and cheap on price!!nnTHANK YOU FOR READING SUCH A LONG REVIEW.....!!!!!
