Currently selling at a special offer price of Rs. 3,999 the Digiflip Pro ET701 offers good bang for the buck in terms of performance and features at its price point. Let’s take a closer look at its features, performance and build quality of this value tablet.
Right of the bat the ET701 scores the highest scores in the display department. The tablet features a 7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The display is bright and offers good viewing angles. The colour reproduction is good for the price and text legibility is much better than many other competing tablets in the same price range.
Tablets or even smartphones at an ultra low price point, tend to feature gaudy plastic and unimaginative design, whereas the Digiflip Pro ET701 manages to exclude both these inhibitions. At 9.1mm, the ET701 is fairly slim and is well complimented via use of premium looking plastics and a scratch resistant back panel which also offers better grip. The tablet also sports a nice looking chrome strip around the entire tablet which adds to its design quotient.
Under the hood: Performance
Performance of the ET701 is another plus point of the affordable 7-inch tablet. The tablet features a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2520 chip. This capable chip has a dual core CPU with clock speeds of 1.2GHz which is combined with 1GB of RAM. This makes multitasking, web-browsing, video playback and gaming on this tablet a smooth experience. Prolonged usage does not result in overheating of the device, ensuring a comfortable experience for long hours of browsing or even gaming. Though, extensive gaming will take a toll on the battery life, just like any other Android device.
Memory expansion and 3G
The ET701 does not offer a SIM slot for 3G, but the tablet supports 3G via dongle making it possible for you to tether the device with a 3G dongle to get connectivity on the move. With 8GB of onboard storage, users can upgrade the storage capability via the built-in MicroSD card slot.
Summing it up
The ET701 is well balanced package if you want to buy a 7-inch Android tablet without spending a lot. It offers good performance, tasteful design, a good IPS screen and memory expansion capability. Not many tablets can offer all this at such a low price.
