Expert Analysis

The Fonepad 7 brings a set of good features like 3G functionality and compact form factor with an appropriate price tag.

Considering the fact that ASUS was the manufacturer for NEXUS tablets from Google, we can certainly hope the build quality and user experience is top notch. However, the Digiflip Pro XT 712 tablet from Flipkart comes with a better processor, screen resolution and camera at Rs. 9999.
