Review - Karbonn Smart Tab 2

(1 Year ago)

The Karbonn Smart Tab 2 (Tab 2) is a low-priced tablet from the Smart Tab series of budget tablets from Karbonn. The Tab 2 is a second and superior budget tablet from Karbonn after the disastrous Smart Tab 1 which failed to attract the attention of the consumers. The Tab 2 offers some decent hardware specifications and latest Android OS at a very reasonable price. Tab 2 is mainly targeted at other budget tablet series in the segment like the Micromax Funbook series and HCL ME series. Tab 2’s main focus rests on convenience and functionality. Karbonn has added many of the missing features in the Smart Tab 1 to the Tab 2.

First Impressions

Tab 2 has good looks with a slim and sleek design. The front of the tablet is black in colour with a white bezel surrounding the screen. The white bezel looks eye catching and gives a premium touch to the tablet. Good quality plastics used in making the panels doesn’t make the tablet like a cheap budget option. Back of the tablet is made of brushed aluminium which gives a stunning look to the tablet. The logo of Karbonn and external audio speaker are visible on the rear of the tablet. Display of the Tab 2 looks crisp and clear with good brightness and contrast levels. The screen’s 800 x 480 pixel resolution (~133 ppi pixel density) looks passable for a 7 inch tablet.

What’s Great?
The tablet’s convenient size makes it easy to slip it into your pocket or handbag. Design of the tablet may not wow you but looks decent enough for a budget tablet priced below Rs 10,000. The capacitive 5 Point Multi Touch Screen gives a good viewing experience even at wide angles.  A protecting hard glass on the touch screen is resistant to scratches making the tablet an ideal travel companion.

Tab 2 is the first budget in India which was released with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) preloaded. This one feature puts it miles ahead of other budget tablets which come with older Android versions and no OS upgrades. Latest Android OS makes the tablet to support almost all of the apps available on the Google’s Play Store. Lot of popular apps like Nimbuzz, Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo Search Engine, Google Search Engine, WhatsApp Messenger, etc. are preloaded in the tablet. SWYPE Feature is also available on the Tab 2 for facilitating faster typing of the text.

Tab 2 runs on a high capacity 1.2 GHz Xburst processor giving the tablet a good working speed.  The tablet has a Vivante GC860 graphics card which ensures good display of graphic content for both academic and general use. An inbuilt 3D accelerator gives good gaming experience for gaming buffs. Indeed, the Tab 2 is one of the few budget tablets (along with BSNL’s Penta tablets) which have 3D support and have good gaming experience. Basic connectivity options like Bluetooth and WiFi help the device to connect with other devices with ease. HDMI support helps you to project images and videos on bigger screens with higher resolutions like HDTVs. 3G networks can also be accessed through external dongles. 

A reliable 3700 mAh Lithium Ion battery gives a good backup of 7 hours for normal use and 25 hours of music playback. Multimedia is a big USP for the Tab 2. The screen can play videos at Full HD (1080p) quality and the tablet’s video player supports a large range of video formats like MOV, MKV, AVI, TS, TP, M2TS, VOB, DAT, MPEG, MP4 and more .

What’s not so Great?
Memory is a big minus for the Tab 2. 512 MB of DDR2 RAM makes the tablet sluggish at times. A 1GB internal flash memory looks totally inadequate to carry your multimedia content. The saving grace is the expandable memory slot (compatible with micro SD or micro SDHC cards) which can extend the tablet’s memory up to 32 GB.

A 2.0 megapixel rear camera can shoot basic pictures which are not good for print outs. The camera is only good enough only for taking some casual random shots. No front facing camera is available on the tablet for video chatting. The rechargeable battery of the Tab 2 is not removable. As the domestic makers like Karbonn have questionable service standards, a worn out battery on the Tab 2 may mean assigning the tablet to the dustbin. Physical buttons for adjusting the sound of the tablet which are generally fixed on the sides too are missing from the tablet. Lack of a SIM card slot doesn’t allow you to connect to 2G /3G networks for data downloading and making voice calls.

Competition
Micromax Funbook
Priced at Rs 6,499, the Micromax Funbook is a cheaper alternative to the Tab 2. Funbook is powered by a 1.2 GHZ cortex A8 Processor and runs on Android 4.0. Upgrade to the OS (to Android Jelly Bean) is still not available for the Funbook. Funbook has a 512 MB which makes the tablet to work slower at times. It has a slightly higher internal memory of 4GB than the Tab 2 which can be extended by another 32 GB through a memory card. A 2,800 mAh battery gives a good battery backup of 5 hours. It has one very basic primary camera which can shoot pictures at a resolution of just 0.3 megapixels. Other features like 3D accelerometer and Full HD support will be missing on the Funbook. You can consider the Funbook only if you have a very tight budget.

BSNL Penta T-Pad IS703C
Priced at just Rs 4,900, the Penta T-Pad from BSNL and Pantel Technologies is another cheaper but good alternative to the Tab 2. The T-Pad gives great value for money for anybody looking for tablets in the sub Rs 5,000 range. Many features available on the T-Pad like 3D, HDMI, and USB OTG are simply impossible to find in any other cheap tablet priced below Rs 4,900. Business related features like office suit, MSN messenger, and Skype makes it an ideal choice for busy corporate executives. 2G/3G connectivity is also available through an external dongle. Buy this tablet if are not bothered with its average looks and the brand image of BSNL.

Bottom-line
The Karbonn Smart Tab 2 packs some decent features for the price at which it is offered. Features like the latest Android 4.1 and high speed 1.2 GHz Xburst processor are not available in many budget tablets in this price range. Competing tablets in this segment generally have older versions of Android and slower processors. Other things like a good screen quality, 3D support, and HDMI port promise a good multimedia experience. Coming to aesthetics, good design with a brushed metallic finish for its rear panel makes the tablet stand out from the crowd.  But, a poor camera and abysmally low internal memory are the real game spoilers. Consider buying this tablet if you are looking for a budget tablet with good looks and don’t mind paying more for additional memory and external dongles for data access.

Price and Availability

The price of the Tab 2 is Rs 6,699. The tablet is available with many multi brand electronic and mobile stores across the country like ‘Mobile Store’, ‘Croma’ and ‘eZone’. You can also buy the tablet for a discount at online ecommerce sites like flipkart.com and naaptol.com.

Much troublesome tablet

Karbonn Smart Tab 2 a one big troublesome tablet. Though appearance wise it looks good but it has many cons. Do remember that its 2 Mp camera seems more like a VGA camera. Even several pre-loaded apps like Saavn, SKype Hungama Play does not work. Plat=ying HD movies over it is also a tough task as they hey tend to force close after few minutes of playing. Its better to shell little more money and consider buying a good brand tablet.

Quite good tablet!

Karbonn Smart Tab 2 is worth buying seeing its affordable price. Touch screen and net browsing over it is smooth. It has got a robust manly look & its build quality is extremely rich even better than Samsung galaxy tabs.
