It is a 7-inch screen with 1024 x 600-pixel resolution. The major issue of the tablet is the screen quality. The viewing angles are not good from several angles. The fonts and the icons are not very sharp but there is a way to improve the screen quality to some extent and you 'll need to go to the display settings and change the font settings go to clear type text then press next there is a dialogue box where you need to select the resolution from 1024 x 600 to 1280 x 768 pixels. The clarity improves a lot but some applications might not open. The camera doesn’t open in this resolution and so you have to switch back to the default resolution. It is a 2Mp camera so don’t expect too much out of it. It is ok. The front camera is also ok for video calling. The HDMI output is working well. The games are playable with some lag. The graphic quality is also ok.
Iball slide i701 is definitely a budget tablet. It is good at performance and mainly it looks good in hands with its spectacular design. But the display quality is very poor other than this there are nothing much negatives seen to discuss particularly. I would definitely love to buy this and it is available at a price of Rs 3,999/-(Snapdeal)
