Now-a-days, with the constantly changing technology, gadgets are flowing in faster than we think. In fact, ever since the tablets are introduced, people have started switching to tablets & most of the other gadgets are forgotten. That is why most of the manufacturers are turning towards tablets and hence have started a TABLET WAR. Here are some of the good tablets which prove to be a good value for money.

It comes with a quad-core processor for speed and awe inspiring graphics. There’s even an NFC One-Touch feature that lets you wirelessly transfer content to your compatible TV, smartphone or speaker with just a touch.
The Xperia™ Tablet Z is water-tolerant. It can transfer content from tablet to TV, tablet to speaker or phone to tablet just by touching them together – just tap and enjoy! That’s the power of NFC.
The 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera come along with mobile sensor takes great shots in any condition, including low light. We can also share pictures directly to Facebook and access them later from the smartphone, TV or laptop. All in all its a great tablet with exceptional features and highly receptive user interface.
Its a new company which took great pains to provide the tablet with a great touchscreen and one touch features. The Coby MID7046-4 tablet is powerful with fast internet and great entertainment features with a 7-inch touchscreen and Ice-Cream Sandwich Operating System. It helps to gain access to thousands of apps via the SlideMe marketplace with plenty of games, social media, and other tools to meet the needs of today’s users. Coby tablets are for you if you are a multimedia junkie.

According to the company, “The MeMO PadTM ME172V offers rich multimedia options enhancing your endless entertainment experience anywhere.” Its lightweight & we can comfortably take it anywhere. It has a 10 point multi-touch display. It has a stylish diamond checkered design which ensures a snug grip. Its available in three cool colors: gray, white, and pink.
As per the company it also contains ASUS Sonic Master technology together with Maxx Audio Wizard which guarantees to add another level to listening music and watching movies. It has five different preset modes which allows to perfectly match the situation so the sound you know &the sound you hear is exactly the sound you wanted.
It has high resolution of 1024*600, runs on jelly-bean with 7 hour battery life. I found that a lot of the apps I like are not compatible with this model/tablet for some reason. There is no bluetooth, and the front only facing camera is horrible. Netflix does not work unless you ok with the audio and video being off by .25-.50 second. VuDoo, wikipedia, Netflix, Gamefly, and a few other apps are not even available from the play store due to “not compatible”.
Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 36984SU
As advertised, you get a powerful Windows tablet and a powerful ultrabook at the same time! It has good battery life with priority in charging mode (tablet gets charged first always). It has fast boot time thus opening in a blink. It can also be used to play 1080p FHD movies with relatively bright screen. Its design is terrific and build quality is incomparable. Its impressively thin in the laptop mode and really powerful as a tablet.
Although its screen fonts are too small & the screen is not as bright as expected. It also faces heating issues. Windows 8 is still cumbersome to use. Screen is too glossy and hurts the eye if used for too long. Apps are not properly customized to use the pen input fully yet.

The Pyle Astro Wi-Fi Tablet is one Touch tablet. It has plenty of entertainment options which are rather good. The Astro tablet lets you perform a number of tasks you desire, to do everything from web surfing with high speed wi-fi capability, to enjoying awesome graphics with 3D gaming.

Its also comes pre-installed with features such as the Android or Google Play App store, etc.
The sound is not good without the earphones. Also, videos are not as rich as more expensive systems but I consider it more than good enough for most applications. It also enables the Micro SD card to be easily inserted in a wrong manner. But it easily falls out when inserted correctly. Also, the rear-facing camera casts a shadow on the lens.

It has both front and back cameras which makes it great for not only video calling but also for capturing those can’t-be-missed moments with your tablet.
The battery life is average. I am still working with setting but I am getting about 8 hour. When just using the web and a little video I can sometimes get more. This table has front and rear facing camera I think just to say it has them. Like a lot of tablets they’re not the best for pictures or video. I can count on one hand the times I need or want to take a picture with my tablet. I would use a real camera or my smart phone. As for Skype or Google Hangouts and video chats,it’s more than ok.

Micromax Funbook Talk P362 Tablet
Its a calling tablet. Though the tablet lacks 3G, but still 2G speed is good and the apps load quickly. It has 7 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen and runs on jelly-bean. Its one of the cheapest tablets with android 4.1.2 and thus the user interface is quite good.
But even though its features look good on paper, on actual use its much worse. The battery life is not even 3 hours and the screen is way too useless. Even the tablets which were cheaper than this were able to provide a much better interface. So my sincere advice to all is to stay away from this tablet.
PRICE: Rs. 6,999
