When we select a tablet, the important factors to be considered are specifications and brand. Before purchasing a tablet, you must check if any service centers are available in your area. Otherwise you will be troubled if any problem occurred. With my experience, Karbonn is more popular than Lava tablets. So, I first prefer Karbonn tablet if other side is a Lava tablet. According to specifications, Lava e Tab Xtron tablet is better than Karbonn Smart Tab 8 tablet. Also, Karbonn is very active in mobile manufacturing. So Karbonn is better than Lava tablets.

Lava e tab Xtron is one of the well developed tablet by Lava with 8GB memory and expandable up to 32GB. Lava, a well known Indian company who in a short period of time developed high budget tablets and smartphones. e tab Xtron is one among them. It works on CORTEX-A9 1.5 GHz Dual Core processor with 7 inch screen. All these features are sufficient for choosing this tablet.
Karbonn is one of the finest company in India developing a huge quantity of smartphones and tablets. Karbonn Smart Tab 8 is one of the tablet introduced by the company, the tablet doesn't support GSM network service. Having a 8 inch screen which is sufficient for tablet user and the processor inside it is CORTEX-A9 1.5 GHz Dual Core processor and internal memory of 1.5GB and expandable up to 32GB.
Making a choice between this tablets is a bit difficult, but all depends upon the user. I would like to prefer Lava e tab Xtron because of its huge memory and some supporting features. But choosing Karboon tablets are also good, because the company is much popular than Lava and more service centers for Karbonn are also available. But searching a service center for Lava is a bit difficult.
Apart from both these tablets you can also have a look onto Google Nexus 10, Nexus 7, but are a bit expensive. You can also have Micromax Funbook, NXG Xtab A10 at nearly same price. Now I'm using Micromax Funbook since three months and it's a good experience using this tablet.

Hi,
When you're unable to choose a tablet between two best brands, you need to go through the specifications first. Compare both the tablet specifications. Main thing to be noticed in tablet is RAM size, internal memory and external memory. Then probably go to operating system and its version. Check whether the version of your tablet is upgradable or not and its better to go for the latest version. If you find all these good in your tablet, then you can definitely purchase it.

I recommend Lava e Tab Xtron. There are many positive reviews for Lava products than Karbonn. In am having Lava eTab Z7H and it performs good compared to other tablets used by my friends. Response in other tablet is not good as Lava. Also Lava produces slim design and doesn't add unnecessary features. According to me HDMI port, USB port, Bluetooth, 3G and rear camera are unnecessary features of a tablet. We won't use those feature more often. But for name sake we are searching for those feature. Lava concentrates to give only best. I vote for Lava eTab XTRON.
