Flipkart’s own brand Digiflip has a range of options in the low cost tablet segment. The Digiflip Pro XT911 seems to be one of the better ones, if not the best. It is a good value for money tab with features that rarely comes in a tab that is priced below 15K. For instance, the biggest selling point for the tab is its 8.9-inch Full HD IPS display screen which comes with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels.

Another good feature that the tab comes with is its 6500mAh battery which is capable of supporting the tab for 15 hours. But the tab disappoints when it comes to the cameras. A 5MP rear and a 2MP front camera is hardly good enough these days, more so when their photo quality is about average.

  1.   Asus Fonepad 7 Tablet (8GB,WiFi, 3G, Voice Calling, Dual SIM)(Rs.11,000)

Priced at just below 11K, the Asus Fonepad 7 FE171CG can act as a bridge between smartphone and tablet. The tablet comes with 1.2GHz dual core Intel Atom processor along with 1GB RAM. These features are good, but certainly not a head turner.But then one has to keep in mind the fact that the tab has been priced at a lowly 10,999.

The biggest advantage of the tab is that it runs the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. The 8MP front camera and the 2MP front camera also work pretty well.

  1. HP Slate 7 Voice Tab (Rs.10,879)

[/ezcol_1half_end]HP Slate 7 VoiceTab was launched last year as an upgrade to the Slate 6 sees some important improvements over it. It comes with a 7-inch 1200×800 display and 1.2GHz processor as well as 1GB RAM. While the body of the tab looks metallic, it is actually made of plastic. As of now the tab runs the Andoid Jelly Bean OS, but an upgrade to the latest KitKat OS can be expected soon.

The biggest drawback in this tab, however, is the fact that the browsing seems to be quite slow in this tab compared to other tabs in its category. Another thing that is missing in this tab is the flash support in the camera. The flash in the Slate 7 is mysteriously absent, while it was there in the Slate 6. ‘

With a 7-inch capacitive IPS touchscreen, a quad core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB RAM, the Lenovo IdeaTab A3000 delivers much more than what its price tag shows. But as with all other electronic products, this one too comes with certain not-so-good features. The primary camera in the A3000 is a paltry 5MP one while the front camera is a even low 0.3 MP. Performance of both these cameras is somewhat disappointing.

In all other cases, the IdeaTab A3000 comes with standard features that all other tablets in this segment offer to the customers.

  1. HP 10 Tab (Rs.12,987)

Launched in 2013, the HP 10 tablet is one in a series of 10-inch tabs launched by the company. Te HP 10 tab especially caught the attention of the consumers and did pretty well. Equipped with a Allwinner quad core A31s processor and 1GB RAM the HP 10 performs pretty smooth for a tab in its segment.

The drawback though is the cameras. Only 5MP at the back is not quite something that pleases the customers. But at a little over 12K the tablet has many things that can satisfy tab frenzy people.

 

  1. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 T211 (Rs.13,795)

  • The build quality is not the best

Samsung has always been a leader when it comes to tech products and with the Galaxy Tab 3 it provides a holistic package to customers at a budget price.

With a 1.2 GHz processor that comes backed with 1GB of RAM, performance on this tab is power packed and the GC1000 Core GPU ensures that gaming, even high end, is amazingly smooth and breezy. The build quality is quite average though with a glossy and slippery back. The camera too isn’t the best the tab is kept alive by a good battery, connectivity and overall is a decent enough budget choice.

Another Samsung on the list is what can be regarded as the next generation Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. It comes with a decent 1.2GHz quad core processor as well as 1.5GB of RAM which ensures that multi tasking is easy and smooth with the battery life being good enough to carry it through.

The display though is 800×1200 pixel which isn’t the greatest and the internal 8GB memory does not feel quite sufficient. The 3MP camera can be regarded as average at best but the tab comes with both Wi-Fi and 3G support making it a good choice on the go.

  1. Dell Venue 8 32GB (Rs.13,750)

Cons:

Another very popular brand worldwide when it comes to gadgets and gizmos is Dell. They have always looked to inspire creativity and come up with products that compete with the best. The Dell Venue is one of these endeavours.

The tab comes with a 2GHz Intel Atom processor that runs on 2GB of RAM. This is easily on the best specifications available on a tablet in this range and delivers optimised and stable performance. The screen too is a good 8 inch HD display and the 5MP primary and 2MP front camera add to the mix. Battery life isn’t the worst but the tab appears to be let down by its Android 4.2 software which runs like a charm on the tab itself but isn’t up to the latest advances in terms of software development.

A good overall deal though, the Dell Venue 8 is a good choice for those on a budget and looking for something superfast and quite effective.

  1. Google Nexus 7 (Rs.15,999)

You know when Google lends its own name to a product that it is bound to be something exceptional. On this count, the Nexus 7 does not disappoint.

With a superfast Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5 GHz quad-core that is backed up with 2GB of RAM, the tab is amazingly fast and the Android 4.4 software performs very well on it. The display too is a gorgeous 1200×1920 HD display and the 5MP rear and 1.2 MP front camera makes taking pictures a treat.

Unfortunately though there isn’t any expandable memory or option of 3G which is a bit of a letdown, but overall this is a great tab which gives you a premium look and feel at a budget price.

  1. Apple iPad Mini 16GB Wi-Fi Only (Rs.15,887)

The tablet boom essentially started with Apple launching the iPad and this started the whole trend of tabs across the world. Little surprise then that the best tabs are also from Apple itself.

The Apple iPad Mini comes with a A5 dual-core 1 GHz processor which is fair in terms of power and its compact size makes it good to hold. Apple’s iOS works wonderfully on it but the iPad does lose out owing to the 512MB RAM which at time causes lags.

The screen resolution too isn’t the best but considering that the Apple ecosystem is very rich and gives the users a lot, the overall benefits are great. Light, compact and fun to use, the Apple iPad Mini is undoubtedly a remarkable product to use.
