Simmtronics Xpad X722: Salient Features
Display & Camera
The tab features a decent body which weighs just 350 gm. It features a 7-inch TFT LCD Capacitive Touchscreen which supports resolution of up to 800 x 480 pixels. This tab can run 480p HD videos but it cannot run 720p and 1080p HD videos smoothly. You can expect to play casual games like Fruit ninja, Dr. driving but you cannot play some HD games even Temple run or Subway surfer with playable fps. I am not saying that temple run is incompatible with this device but this tab will sometime lag or freeze while playing it. Regarding the camera, Xpad X722 comes with a 2 MP rear camera and a 0.3 MP front camera. So, you cannot expect clear shots from this tab and selfies look like they have been taken from some VGA camera. But considering its price range, we cannot blame this product for its poor features.
Processor & RAM
Xpad X722 comes with 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor and performs well with casual gaming, movies and web browsing. Although this tab comes with 1GHz processor but you cannot multi task with it. Multi-tasking makes this tab to freeze more frequently and hence should be avoided. This Xpad is powered by 512 MB DDR3 RAM that works perfectly with processor to deliver fairly good performance. X722 comes with Mali-400 processor to support some casual gaming and HD movies. In order to check its graphic performance, I ran some games (not hardcore ones) like Contract killer but as expected the game didn't ran with playable FPS. However, you can play casual games online and surf the internet without facing any lags. So, I must say that Simmtronics Xpad X722, while not a diamond product, it is a fancy pick for those who are low in budget and want a casual tab for their day to day work.
Storage & battery
Simmtronics Xpad X722 comes with 4 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. However, I recommend you not to install more than two 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 talk time of nearly 7 hours and standby time of 100 hours. When the device is exploited continuously with heavy gaming and web browsing, the battery may last up to 6 hours.
Pros and Cons
Simmtronics Xpad X722 provides some decent features in its price range and it is a good pick for those low in budget. The voice calling facility is good and much clear than its rivals. The product also looks much decent as compared to its competitors. Considering the price range. the battery backup is quite good. It also comes with built-in Wi-Fi and supports 3G via dongle. Simmtronics Xpad X722 supports a wide range of video and audio formats.
It lags a lot while playing games like Candy Crush, Subway Surfers and even Temple Run. Moreover, the screen resolution is not that much good and gives a wrong notion of some Chinese product. Bluetooth support is very poor and it does not support 1080p video playbacks. It comes up with Android Ice cream Sandwich and cannot be upgraded to higher OS.
Operating System Android OS, v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Sensors G-Sensor Voice call Supported Wi-Fi Supported 3G Via Dongle Only Video formats supported 3GP, AVI, FLV, MOV, MPG, MKV, WMV, MP4, RMVB, MPEG2-TS Audio formats supported MP3, OGG, WMA, FLAC, M4A, MP2, AAC, AMR, AC3, M4R Battery Type 3500mAh, Lithium-Polymer Battery
I have self tested all features of the Simmtronics Xpad X722 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.
