Entertainment and Gaming
This tablet can easily play 1080p videos and many other supported formats using MX player. Common games like Angry Birds, Temple Run etc works well with no issues. Some of the high end games may or may not work.

Others
There is Wi-Fi which worked well. The tab does get heated a bit when using it for a longer time. The front camera looks good and can be used with Skype for video chats. The sound output is low as compared with Karbonn ST8 Velox tablet.

Battery
The battery is of 3500 mAh capacity and the uptime is quite good. I tried playing a video with full brightness, before playback the battery level was 60 and after 30 minutes the battery level fell to 40. But with minimal brightness the battery level drop was just 5 points in 30 minutes.  You can easily watch movies for over 5 hours comfortably.  Do note Wi-Fi was switched off. When playing games the battery level may fall much faster (depends on the game).

Lava Xtron review
A powerful 7 inch tablet with good viewing angles and from a well known brand LAVA. There is no built in 3G support, however you can use supported 3G dongles and access 3G. (Following 3G dongles supported :- Tata Photon+ – EC156,  Airtel – E1731, Reliance 3G- MF190, MTS Mblaze – AC2787)

The same hardware specs can be found on the Wammy Desire and VeeDee D10DC and the price of Desire and Xtron is identical, however D10DC is cheaper by about 500 bucks. The other option is to go for the Karbonn ST8 with 8 inch screen for Rs. 7290.
