Top six 7-inch Android tablets under 8k

The overall scores for Performance, Media, User Interface and Build quality
The selection process
Display size and budget were main factors in making the initial choice. We then narrowed it down to the top 6 based on elements such as performance and specs. Post that, we ran a series of benchmarks, analysed the build (inside and out) and finally factored in the UI and overall experience while using the device. So based on these factors, we separated the lot and here’s what proved to be the best of the best.
WickedLeak Wammy Desire
And the top performer is…
Don’t let the odd name fool you. This is one of the first 7-inch tablets in the Indian market to feature a dual core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, having 1GB of RAM and an onboard storage of 8GB. It is also one of the first tablets shipped with the latest operating system from Android, i.e. Jelly Bean aka v4.1, straight out-of-the-box. That’s just for starters.
The Desire also has a superb build quality with a compact shell, making it easy to handle and thanks to the dotted, rubberised rear panel, it’s got a great grip. It features all relevant connectivity options from Wi-Fi, USB OTG and micro USB to HDMI unlike some tablets that leave out the HDMI interface to cut down on price. The display quality is similar to the others in the segment and you can’t expect more in this range. The Wammy Desire handles 1080p full HD videos like a pro. The user interface is smooth—thanks to the dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, the MALI-400 GPU and, of course, Project Butter. The performance tests came out singing the Desire’s praise.
So based on the various tests, users experiences, design and build, the Wammy Desire easily comes out on top as the best 7-inch Android tablet under Rs. 8000.
What’s HOT : Dual core 1.5GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB built-in storage, JB OS, rubberised back panel, memory card slot flap.
What’s NOT : Below average audio volume.
