The performance is really nice and decent enough with this 1.2GHz quad-core processor. The major issue of this device is it is still running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and no upgrade is provided. The secondary camera is a VGA camera which is decent and nothing special as I can say. The camera interface is also very usual.  It would be nice if it is a full HD display with more resolution comparing to the display size. You can play games like GTA san Andreas and Asphalt 8 with ease. It is running quite smoothly.

The graphic quality seems impressive while playing low-end games but with high graphic games, many frame droppings are observed and also a bit laggy. The normal games gameplay is nice and smooth. The smart keyboard is very good to use giving a very good space even for large fingers. The video playback quality is also good and not laggy. The build quality is very strong. The battery provides enough backup which almost lasts a day. The overall performance of the device with given features is good and no issues are reported.


The device sports a large display with powerful configuration, this device is a cost efficient device, supports Wi-Fi but comes with an only front facing VGA camera and back camera is not given in this tab. This tablet is available with an affordable price tag.
