This tablet features a 5 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera, the camera is a average one but very few of us ever use a tablet to take snaps. It has a 4200 mAh lithium polymer battery and the battery performance of this tablet is quite impressive.
2. Huawei MediaPad Honor T1:
Next up on our list is the Honor T1 from Huawei which comes with 8 inch IPS LCD display this one is powered by a 1.2 GHz A7 Qualcomm Quad core processor with 1 GB of RAM. The plastics used in the tablet are not of top-notch quality but build quality is decent for the price point. It comes with 8 GB of internal storage and is expandable upto 32 GB via microSD.
