First impressions

The first time you see the Videocon VT10 Tab you are amazed at its resemblance to the iPad. This white tablet's greatest spec is its screen size. 10.1 inches of capacitive multi-touch works perfectly. Although, one's fingerprint marks are quite prominent on them, we advise you purchase a scratch guard as soon as you purchase the device. Overall, the build of the device is quite good and the silver back panel makes it look more elegant. This Android device is not too heavy either (650 grams). The touch sensitivity is decent and its operating system works smooth thanks to the Android 4.1.1 - Jellybean.

The tablet comes with pre-loaded applications such as Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, E-Book, Echo, Go Weather, Documents To Go, nexGTv, Nimbuzz, PhotoFunia, Saavn, Skype and Zomato. There are also a host of popular gaming apps that come pre-installed with the tablet such as Paper Toss, Bubble Break, Temple Run, Temple Run2 and Where's My Water.


Just like most budget tablets, the plastic body can be a turn off. But since it is white with a silver back panel, it manages to win on the looks front. Had it been black, it would have been a disaster. In terms of performance, the tablet is fairly good. The 1.5GHz dual - core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor along with 1GB RAM live up to the expectations of offering a great experience. Playing games, using the Internet over Wi - Fi and other functions work smoothly.

The disappointment comes in when you try using the camera. The pictures turn out grainy and don't even try to zoom in and click pictures! The battery life is poor too. It barely lasts 4 to 5 hours depending upon usage. Video streaming over Wi-Fi can drain it in around 3 hours. Indulge in some fun gaming and the battery dies in about 4 hours.

The display is good when indoors but it is a disaster when outdoors. We experienced very minimum lag while using the device. When we tested its benchmarks, better than then Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and performance that is close to the Asus Transformer Prime.


We had recently reviewed another budget tablet, and this one, considering it is the first from the house of Videocon it is an average product. Purely on specs, it is one of the most powerful tablets in its league but when it came to performance it was a letdown. If you need a tablet merely for streaming videos on Youtube, play games and carry to presentations to make an impression, then this is a delightful product. But if the purpose is to use to more intense purposes (minus the charger) then the Videocon VT10 does not fit in.
