Best Android Tablets Under Rs 10,000 - June 2013

The rise of tablets is very high worldwide, more and more people are getting this device regardless of their use and budget. Earlier the time was of PC, but now the PC sales are declining very sharply and tablets are rising up rapidly simultaneously. It makes a very big sense to get yourself a tablet, as these are budget-friendly, extremely usable and can do the task of a Laptop and Mobile as an intermediate between the power of both.

But a little problem that buyers face while getting a tablet for themselves and that is, Which tablet should I buy?

So I am here to help you out for buying a tablet made just for you and your needs. In this post, I will tell you about 4 best tablets to check this summer which are extremely affordable without affecting the quality of the stuff inside!

So here are the five beasts who will defend each other to get the first position. Arranged in increasing price.
  • Micromax Funbook Talk P362
  • Lava XTron+
  • Asus MeMo Pad 
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
So let the competition between these tablets begin, and here we start with Micromax Funbook Talk.

Micromax is known for its fame and name in India. Sometimes their products disappoint high as fcuk but on the contrary if you pick up their high end stuffs like Canvas HD, you will forget that it is made by a so called cheapo company. Talking about their tablets segment, I have personally used their tablets and they amaze me as well as disappoint me. Talking straightly, here are the things that will make you  happy for your purchase:
  • The touch screen is very responsive and feels smooth as butter, along with that good touch input, the interface also is completely lag-free, thanks to Android 4.1. So no need to compromise on its touch screen quality.
  • Hardware-wise talking, the specs for which you pay are above par and never make you feel disappointed. Most Funbook tablets are powered by Dual Core Mali-400 GPU, which is the reason games will almost run lag-free. The processor is also dual core by Cortex
  • This is the best budget-friendly tablet that supports calling too. But hey, 3G is missing, so you can use this tablet on 2G network only for calling purpose. For Internet connectivity, there is WiFi and USB-OTG support for connecting USB Modems.
Now after knowing its advantages, let me disappoint you a little! The battery backup is below par and drains very quickly after a normal usage of 2-3 hours! But I won't consider this a bad-mark as you know how much you paid for it and you can't expect a little more from that price. By the way, the price of this tablet is Rs 6990 as per on 2-June-2013.

Just like Micromax, most of us are brand-conscious before buying anything and specially gadgets. Now I am gonna say something to you: You can skip reading the whole post and BUY this tablet right now before it goes out of stock. This tablet is the best in terms of hardware performance, beating Nexus 7 in 3 out of 5 benchmarks. But for the sake of my hard-work and giving you more choice for buying a tablet, I will complete this post and I request you to read it as well.
Here are the reasons to look out for this tablet:
  • 1.5 GHz Dual Core Cortex-A9 processor, 1 GB DDR3 RAM and Quad Core Mail-400 GPU
  • The above line is sufficient to amaze the shit out of your mind, but this muscular boy has got looks too. You get the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and 7-Inch IPS Multi-Touch screen with a resolution of 1024x600.
  • Dual camera being 2 MP the back and 0.3 MP front.
  • 3700 mAh battery for extra backup and to support the high-end specs
So, you might have made your decision of which tablet to buy, so do not wait for anyone else to review it for you, just go ahead and bring it up! And never mind, it can go out of stock very soon just like its predecessor did. 

Asus MeMo Pad ME172V

Asus is a well known brand to all of us and popular for its build quality and performance. So here is the Asus's answer for your low-budget tablet. Being priced at Rs 9799, this tablet is gonna meet your performance needs with ease and smoothness. Have a look at its key specs:
  • 1 GHz VIA Processor, 1 GB DDR3L RAM and Mali 400 Graphics
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 7-Inch LCD Touch Screen with support of up-to 10 fingers at a time.
  • 4270 mAh Lithium Battery for 7 Hours non-stop use and a 1 MP HD Front Camera for sharp stills.
You might get a little disappointed seeing its low specs for higher pricing. All I would say is that the reason I have added this tablet in the list is its build quality and longer usage cycle because it is a product of Asus.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3110

You might say, what is Samsung doing here in the list of budget friendly tablets? Well, if you do not know, recently Samsung recently launched new version of Galaxy Tab 2 but without calling facility for a price of Rs 9990. I need not define anything about how cool and awesome is Galaxy Tab, but still its a rule so here are the quick-specs of this tablet.
  1. 1 GHz Dual Core processor, 1 GB RAM and a PowerVR SGX540 GPU which is a bit older.
  2. 3.15 MP HD Primary camera supporting 720p HD video recording @30 FPS and a 4000 mAh battery for longer backup.
  3. Never mind, it has the most inbuilt storage of 16 GB on board out of which about 13 GB is available to user which is good enough to store a good collection of data 
You can rely on this tablet if you want to use for it general purpose like Surfing internet and paying moderate games. The on-paper battery back shows about 93 hours of non-stop music playback, which makes it a good portable entertainment device. Also the inclusion of TouchWiz UI adds up to the usability of the tab's interface. My verdict is that you should consider this tablet, if you are willing for a long-term investment.
