HCL Me Tab Y2

 

Overall, the HCL Me Tab Y2’s is a good performing tablet but it does have its downfalls. It has one of the best displays on a budget Android tablet. For starters it’s an IPS panel and the resolution is higher than other 7-inch tablets. We played some apps and videos on the device and they ran quite smoothly. On the downside, it compromises on the Google Play store, which is a big deal breaker. If you are one who is interested in loading your devices with the latest apps you may have to do so by downloading the apk file or limiting yourself to what the HCL ME app store has to offer. But if a fantastic display and overall good multimedia performance is what you are looking for then you can definitely consider this device. Read our review here.

Lava eTabWhere to buy 6920 7999

For a tablet priced under Rs. 6000, the lava e-tab performs well. It beats the Ultratab A100 hands down, which has the same specification as the e-tab. For the price you pay, you are getting a capacitive screen, decent power under the hood and a respectable build. You can consider this tablet over its competition if you are on a tight budget. But remember, the viewing angles aren’t the best and the table does lag a bit. The experience of the stock browser too could have been better. Read our review here.
