Introduction

As Android tablets are in high demand nowadays, the number of new entrants in the market is increasing at a faster pace than ever. While all the experienced players were already generating decent amount of revenue, the market has recently attracted some new entities as well. Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart is among such entities and has made its debut in the market with launching its Digiflip Pro XT712 tablet. With taking the first step into the tablet market, the Indian e-commerce company is somewhere in plans to compete Amazon which is already in the tablet market with its Kindle Fire tablets. Moving forward in the same direction, the company may soon announce some more tablets from its Digiflip Pro lineup, but in the meanwhile we have been testing the Digiflip Pro XT712 since its launch last month to cover an in-depth review. So here are our words on the Digiflip Pro XT712.

What’s in the Box

Flipkart Digiflip Pro XT712 is being marketed by the e-commerce company as a value for money tablet and to really give a true value for the money paid by the customers, the tablet bundles with a decent number of accessories. In this regard, the Digiflip Pro XT712 comes along with a USB data cable, USB OTG (USB On-the-Go) cable, headset, 3.5mm extension cable, AC charger and a user manual.

The box content are enough to make the tablet a decent deal under mid-range segment. The addition of content such as USB OTG cable and an audio extension cable helps users in their daily operations while using the tablet.

Its Design

Mid-range tablets usually come with pure plastic built but Flipkart Digiflip Pro XT712 has a combination of high-grade plastic along with some metal to attract the customers with a solid built over some other mid-range tablets. There are two color options available – white and black – and users can also purchase an optional flip cover to add a personalise look and feel to the tablet.

The front of the Digiflip Pro XT712 has a 7-inch display which is surrounded by thin bezels. Above the display, there is an earpiece for producing in-call audio and a secondary camera is available just below the earpiece. A couple of sensors – ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor – are available at the side of the camera sensor.

On the left, there is a power/lock button and a volume rocker while right side is completely bare with no button. The buttons available on the left are ergonomically placed but they do not give any high-end feel.

The bottom side of the Digiflip Pro XT712 has a microUSB port, which supports USB OTG connectivity as well, and a microphone is also available on the bottom.

Though the tablet does not have a removable back panel to bring out the battery pack, users can remove the panel from the top, on the rear side, to put a couple of SIM cards and a microSD card inside. All the three card slots are hot-swappable.

Overall, the design of the Digiflip Pro XT712 is quite sober. Users may not find any slimness on the tablet or feel light weight but the design is ergonomic and makes single hand operations easy. The addition of metal cannot be easily judged, however, gives a solid feel.
