In the already sprawling tablet market, mobile device players are bringing in their best to cater to the budget conscious lot of consumers. Fly Mobiles is no different and has launched an Android tablet with voice calling feature. The company has launched its first tablet, the F8s, which will be facing stiff competition from the already established, well known set of players like Micromax, HCL and more. Knowing that this is their first product, the company has been very particular about each specification they offer in this tablet and have launched it at a rather competitive price point of Rs 13,499. We got a chance to get familiar with the tablet and here are our first impressions about the 8-incher tablet.

If one goes by the looks, the Fly F8s is packed in an all white plastic chassis without any hint of metal on it, and looks influenced by the iPad mini. The back has a grainy textured, criss-cross pattern which makes it appear nice, and with slightly curved sides, help in a better grip of the device and is comfortable to use. Despite the plastic frame, the device managed to catch our interest quite easily.

The tablet holds an 8-inch Ultra Bright XGA IPS display with 1024X768 pixels resolution, which looks decent and offered nice and smooth visuals, without color distortion. It is capable of playing HD videos as well. As far as the touch interface goes, though the touch worked smooth but there were times when we found it lagging, however it could possibly be due to the screen skin on the demo unit.

In terms of other major features, it has Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, runs on 1.2GHz dual-core processor, which is seen in many of its competitors as well, and features 1GB of RAM with 2.5GB of usable memory out of the 4GB of ROM. It also has a microSD card slot to expand the memory to up to 32GB.

The tablet can also work on 3G network, supports voice-calling, and has a single SIM slot given on it as well. However, like many of its equivalents from other players, you will either need to use headphones or loud-speaker to talk to the other person on call, as the earphone is missing on the device. Talking about speakers, the device holds dual-speakers placed on each corner of one side of the back, and were loud and clear.

As far as the camera goes, there are two cameras given on the device. The back holds a 3.2-megapixel camera and the front has a 2-megapixel snapper to support video calls as well. We got some decent shots when used the camera in that short duration and in a closed room, however it would be too early to make any comment on camera quality, until we test it for a longer period of time and in different light conditions.

Other features include FM radio, which is quite apt for the Indian audience. On the connectivity front, the device supports for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and GPRS. There are some sensors like proximity sensor, accelerometer and gravity sensor.

To sum it all, look and features wise F8s seems like a decent option, but it is too early to comment on the performance, which as per the company is better than Samsung’s tablet. The tablet is priced for Rs 13,499. To know more, wait for our full fledged review of the tablet.
