Dimensions – Review:
The Micromax Funbook measures 12.2 x 19.2 centimeters and remans one of the best device to hold in the hands. Comparing the device with the Amazon Kindle Fire, the device is light weight, as the Amazon Kindle Fire is too heavy to be held in a weak wrist.
Looking at the home, menu and back buttons, the device does not seem to be made for Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The buttons on the screen is the same as that of the buttons below the screen. The functionality of the buttons are the same and the reason for this is unknown, but still the only advantage of the buttons is that, it will make few things accessing easy.
Android 4.0 :
Micromax, with changes like new logo, seems have decided to go for Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich than opting for lower versions op Android. We believe that the manufactures do not want the customers to wait for an update. (Note: The Android 4.0 looks much better in compact smartphones than on the larger screens).
The Micromax Funbook can be claimed as one of the nest device for entertainment. The tablet can play 1080p, as the device runs on 1.22GHz Cortex A8 processor with Dual Mali GPU. The sound over the speaker isn't good, so it will be much better to invest on good headphones.
Speaking about the review on Micromax Funbook camera, the device does not feature a rear camera and comes with a front VGA camera, which is good only for video chatting.
The device is been featured with 2800mAh battery, which according to the company, the battery can withstand a time of 5 hours of browsing.
