In an era where superior quality demands a high ROI, and is thus expensive; iBall has been responsible for introducing an array of products that are user as well as pocket friendly.
The latest, a 7 inch tablet with 1GB RAM (that can be stretched upto to 16GB in-built), light on the pocket in more sense than one, easily portable and comes with a free subscription of Microsoft Office for 365 days – yes, the new iball Slide i701 is indeed a revolutionary product that has recently hit the market.
Although the rear camera is merely 2MP, the 7inch IPS touch display compensates for creating a deluxe viewing experience. With an Intel Atom Processor with quad core up to 1.83GHz and a battery of 3200mAh, the sleek tablet proves to be an unexpectedly utile package.
In a way, it will prove to be a boon to those who believe in cost efficiency. It is absolutely user friendly and priced at a steal! How much is it priced you ask? Well, the entire accessorized package will cost you less than Rs. 5,000/- and is also equipped to support low end games.Yes! A pioneer in the arena of innovation indeed.
Structured in a way to utilize optimum space, it has an inbuilt connectivity of the basic wi-fi and bluetooth. Along with a3G via the dongle, it has also enabled an added benefit of the USB OTG function.
With a classy touch of Windows 8.1 and a provision of upgrading to Windows 10, the product is accompanied with swish accessories – 3 vibrant multi colored hard plastic back covers and here comes the best part – a mini HDMI cable!
In fact, if you connect the iBall Slide i701 to a television set, accompanied with a keyboard and wireless mouse, it can even function as a CPU, allowing you to convert the entire apparatus into a personalized desktop.
The keystrokes sometimes get restricted to five point, causing a hindrance in the display and restricting the angles for viewing on the screen. Even the minimum optimized resolution is low, about 1024×600. On the website if you research a bit before purchasing, it shows an astounding quality of the camera. But then, in good light, it does allow one to click decent pictures.
The tablet lasts for about a decent time under heavy or moderate usage once charged. When it comes to using applications and multiple games, rather than than complain of the processor being slow, it is advisable to install from the Windows store itself.
On a conclusive note, the pros do outweigh the cons. After all, for a price of less than Rs. 5,000/- if you cannot expect perfection on a platter. But the iBall Slide i702 is an effort definitely worth appreciating as it marks the beginning of something better.

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.
