Oplus XonPad 7: Salient Features
Display & Camera
The XonPad 7 has a brush metal finish body which weighs just 310 gm. It features a 7 inch LCD capacitive multi-touch HD display which supports resolution of up to 1280 x 800 pixels. Movies and games look very good in this tab. It supports WMV, DivX, 3GP, MP4, H.263, H.264 and MPEG4 video formats and never takes much time in processing the video.

Processor & RAM
XonPad 7 comes with 1.2 GHz MediaTek MT8389W Coretx A7 Quad Core processor and delivers devastating performance with every game and app. With such a powerful processor, you would never face any lag and hence it also allows you to multi task. Oplus XonPad 7 is powered by 1 GB RAM and makes the gaming a brilliant experience. In order to check its graphic performance, I ran some graphic demanding games like Modern combat 4, Asphalt 7 and Call of Duty strike team. And to my surprise, they all ran with good graphics and playable FPS. Moreover, you can play games online and surf the internet without facing any lags. So, I must say that Oplus XonPad 7 is a fancy pick for gamers and movie geeks.
Storage & battery
Oplus XonPad 7 comes with 16 GB internal storage. However, available user memory of the device may be lower than the stated memory due to default pre-installed apps and device OS. But still you can install microSD to expand its external storage. It supports microSD of up to 32 GB and never lags when you install some heavy apps. However, I recommend you not to install three or four heavy apps (around 100 MB each) as users have limited storage for app installation. Regarding battery and backup, it comes with 3500 mAH Lithium – Polymer battery which gives good backup of nearly 8 hours when the device is exploited continuously with heavy games and browsing.
Pros and Cons
Users may find some squeaky sound when pressing the screen of the left side but that is not a technical fault. Performance wise, I found no lag what so ever I installed whether it be Asphalt 8 or Modern combat 4. You can play HD movies without facing any lag. According to me, this tab is very good for normal usage but is not recommended for heavy regular usage. Regarding the battery backup, it is Very good considering its price and in built features. Normal users would not find themselves repeatedly running to the wall socket as battery seems to last pretty good. For normal usage, battery can easily give a backup of around 12 – 14 hours which is pretty good considering its price. However, hardcore users would have to charge their tab's battery every 7 hours. But overall, Oplus XonPad 7 is the best budget voice calling 3G tablet under Rs 10,000.
