As wisemen say, “buy something that has value for money“, I must admit that I am one of those and guys today I am going to share my experience of using one of the most incredible and a very low cost Tablet-A gadget that don’t pinch your Pocket manufactured by Flipkart (The most popular E-Commerce Portal in India).
I have purchased this Tablet last year in August’ 2014 and almost using 8 months all I could say that I am highly impressed with DigiFlip Pro XT 801.(This is the Wifi model with no calling feature or data service available). I am happy with this gadget even after 8 months of buying it and hence thought it must reach to people as well.
This tab is really value for money and I have purchased it for INR 8999/-. It is very fast having 1GB RAM and the display is really very good. Now this price has been reduced to INR 6999/-.
As per my using experience I have given below some of the “Pros” and “Cons” of the Tab.
- Build Quality and Design:This Tab has a very descent build quality. The materials used in this gadget and its weight gives this Tab a substantial feel.The tab looks really great with a sharp edge that gives a smarty look and I liked the design of the tab.
- Display: Since this Tab has not a very impressive PPI count, we should not expect this Tab to deliver an outstanding “Reading” experience, but being an IPS panel, the screen (1280 x 800, 8 inch) does really a good job of delivering fantastic viewing angels, sharp & clear “Video Playback” and a descent image output which make it best gadget to use.
- Impressive Battery Life: Usually in weekdays I did not have much time to spend with my Tab, however, I used to a lit bit of browsing or Facebook. So based on my low and medium usage I was able to squeeze almost 2 days without charging. But yes, during weekends, after watching movies or videos continuously, this Tab was able to give support for around 6 hrs. which is really impressive.
- Storage: The storage is the key feature of this tab because within this budget you are getting external storage via micro SD card which is capable enough to store HD videos and movies.The most striking and essential feature of this Tab is that we can plug a memory stick or a pen drive and can watch movies of videos directly from that pen drive or the memory device. You do not have to copy the files in the Tab memory. It works similar like laptops or desktops where you can simply plug a memory device to watch movies or play songs.Apart from this this Tab is having 16GB internal memory and expandable upto 32GB.
- Awesome Headphone in this gadget : Flipkart provides “Sound Magic ES 18” headphone absolutely “free” with this tab and yes, it’s an amazing ear plug. The audio quality is really very good with a good Bass and crisp audio with adequate volume. Just be cognizant that you are using Power amp with “Direct Volume Control Turned” off for best results.
- Performance: Performance wise I have found no issues although I have played many games and all of them ran very smoothly without any glitch or freezing of the system. However, I have seen occasional freezing or lags when I played for long duration continuously or due to some extreme multitasking.
- Fast Charging: Another remarkable feature is that the charging takes only 90 minutes to boost up the battery level from 0-100.
Cons of this gadget:
- Weight: The weight does matter, being 365 g, you will surely find it difficult to use the device for a long time while lying on a bed or facing and holding for a long time. It feels heavy.
- Erratic UI: The user interface (UI) feels old. The “Quick Access Panel” and the “Notification Drawer” feels like they could utilize the extra real estate of this Tab.It could be better but still in terms of budget its good.
- Crappy Camera:Camera is not at all impressive and dose not perform well for taking snaps or making “Video Calls”. Image looks distorted and Video filled with noise.
Overall, a pretty nice buy within a very low budget and if your“Primary Objective” is watching movies or videos, listening to music and surfing then I would suggest just go for it and I am sure that you will love it.
So, guys what you are waiting for, just open “Flipkart” website or you can also use “Flipkart” mobile app from your smartphone and place the order. The best part is that “Flipkart” used to deliver the tablet with full battery charged.
