I have yet again come up with a budget voice calling tablet review. As usual, I gave a hard research to this tablet to bring you every inch of its information. We all are aware of some of the best Android tablets which have always satisfied their users with their fancy features. But we all know that all those tabs are premium ones and cannot be called the budget tablets. But what if there exist a budget voice calling 3G tab under Rs 10,000 which can provide a huge list of features? Yes! I am talking about Flipkart's Digiflip Pro XT 712 . Upon taking a brief look at its features, I have decided to include it in my list of best budget voice calling tablets. Like always, I bought it to see what unique features this tab can provide me. And to my surprise, it provided me all the features that I had always demanded from a budget tab. Whether it be a 1.3 GHz Quad core processor, 1 GB DDR3 RAM or a full HD IPS display, Digiflip Pro XT 712 comes with all these features. Digiflip Pro XT 712 features a premium built-in quality and a unique sleek design. With a beautiful camera and wonderful display, Digiflip Pro XT 712 allows you to capture and store your all beautiful memories in rich and vivid colors. Moreover, it features a pixel density of 216 ppi and is really a big go for reading eBooks online. With a powerful battery and devastating processor, Digiflip Pro XT 712 effortlessly plays whatever you throw at it whether it be HD games or movies. And of course, the Digiflip premium covers are a way to express your funky dude character. Now, let's have a look at Digiflip Pro XT 712 features and specifications:
Digiflip Pro XT 712: Salient Features
Display & Camera
The Digiflip Pro XT 712 has a rugged premium body with metal back panel which weighs just 300 gm. It features a 7 inch multi-touch IPS display which supports resolution of up to 1280 x 800 pixels. Movies and games look very good in this tab. Digiflip Pro XT 712 is a dual sim tablet which comes with dual standby. Digiflip Pro XT 712 uses every inch of its display pixels to make videos, images and games look brilliant in this wonderful tab. The Digiflip Pro XT 712 ensures that the lines between reality and entertainment are blurred and offers an amazing experience. Regarding the camera, Digiflip Pro XT 712 comes with a crystal clear 5 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera to deliver awesome selfies. Digiflip Pro XT 712 has the ability to record HD videos at an awesome 1920 x 1080 display resolution.
Processor & RAM
Digiflip Pro XT 712 comes with 1.3 GHz Cortex-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. Digiflip Pro XT 712 is powered by 1 GB DDR3 RAM and makes the gaming a brilliant experience. Flipkart has also introduced Mali-400MP2 graphics processor which is clocked at 500 MHz to run all the graphic demanding games and apps with top notch performance. 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 Digiflip Pro XT 712 is a fancy pick for gamers and movie geeks.
Storage & battery
Digiflip Pro XT 712 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 you can install microSD card to expand its storage and it supports microSD cards of up to 32 GB and never lags when you install some heavy apps. However, I recommend you not to install more than 8 heavy apps (around 100 MB each) as users have limited storage for app installation. Regarding battery and backup, it comes with 3000 mAh Lithium - Polymer battery which gives talk time of nearly 8 hours and standby time of 168 hours. When the device is exploited continuously with heavy games and browsing, the battery may last up to 7 hours.
Pros and Cons
Digiflip Pro XT 712 features a handsome look with high built-in quality. I used it continuously for 5 hrs with hardcore gaming and browsing but didn't observed any lags or freezes. And what I found interesting is that it doesn't get heated even after a long heavy usage. So, hardware wise it is perfectly built which intelligently cooperates with software. However, smoothness may vary when a bunch of heavy apps is installed. It supports dual sim voice calling and I tested it with both the sims (3G) inserted and it worked quite well without giving me a headache. Digiflip Pro XT 712 features a loud and prominent voice calling which is a big go for this budget tablet. Moreover, USB connection was also very fast and it was able to copy files with fairly good speed without much delays.
However, the sound quality is not that much perfect and is hardly audible up to distances of a few meters. Moreover, 1080p video playbacks were also a little bit laggy. It is pre loaded with 5 basic apps like FK, FK Ebook reader, Adobe Flash, MX Player and Facebook. So, there are a lot of missing apps which other tablets provide in this range. But this is not a major problem as you can download all those apps manually from various external sources. And remember, the Android Jelly Bean cannot be upgraded to KitKat. And like other budget voice calling 3G tablets, it does not feature a perfect camera and you can take quality pics in daylight while the night pics may not be that much clear.
But overall, this is a good budget tablet and provides all the features compatible in its price range.

I have self tested all features of the Digiflip Pro XT 712 to provide you an unbiased and the most decent review. It took a lot of hard research and examination to carefully list all these features. But still there may be some more good or bad points apart from the above mentioned ones. If you find any of them, I will be glad to include it in this article. However, apart from all this, what I found is that this tab is a must buy in its price range which provides really good features with a powerful battery backup for enhanced and non-stop video playbacks.
