Swipe 3D Life Plus
Swipe 3D Life Plus Tablet Price in India
Since the Android tablets are growing in number particularly in Indian market and this is due to the rising of new manufacturers in the market. Almost many of the tablets from different manufacturers share similar features but the difference comes in OS as well as the build quality of the device. The California based company Swipe has also launched its new tablet with the name 3D Life Plus which is the successor of the 3D Life. The size of the screen in this tablet is similar to that of 3D Life which is 7-inch and rest of the features is also almost identical.
Features and Specifications
The OS in this tablet is Android v4.2 Jelly Beans and the processor is 1.2GHz dual-core. The RAM though is limited to only 512MB and the internal storage is limited to 4GB which can be expanded up to 32GB with the help of microSD card. The size of the screen is 7-inch providing 400x800p resolution and the type of the screen is TFT capacitive touchscreen providing ulti-touch as well. Both the front and the back cameras are of 1.3MP with digital zooming feature. Battery here is 3000mAh and different communication features are here like microUSB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The weight of the tablet is 280g.
Design and Quality
The build quality of the tablet is quite good and it also looks nice due to having curved edges. The front of the screen has three capacitive navigation buttons which are for back, menu and home. The back of the device is generally black in color and glossy finish. The connectivity ports are all on the right hand side including the PC USB interface, audio port and the power. Towards the top of the device are the volume rocker and the power button. The back of the device has the microSD card slot and a single speaker.
OS and Tech
The OS here has got improved from its previous versions which have brought quite a lot of improvement in the performance of the device. The boosting of performance is also coordinated well from the good processor but due to limited RAM and bigger screen size, the performance at times may see the lags while running heavy games or apps.
Camera and Multimedia
The rear and front cameras are of same capacity and the performance is not any improvement from its previous versions. The photography experience is not good with the rear camera but since the device is 3D so it gives a 3D view to the images taken by its camera and the videos recorded by it brings little twist in the quality of the images and pictures. But overall the original performance of the cameras are not very good and this is similar to any tablet already available a much lower costs in the Indian market especially the Chinese tablets are much better.
Battery and Memory
The battery in this tablet is not bad and during the battery test it worked for more than 4hrs and keep the phone running for this much time which is of course not appreciating for any tablet. But the battery life normally also varies from its use and also from person to person. For some users, this much battery may not be bad and for majority of the users this would not be good either. But few factors which contribute to the battery life are the brightness of the screen, the use of internet over the device, the levels of volume and the type of file formats to be used on it. 512MB RAM is not appreciating as well and this brings performance lags as well. The internal storage of 4GB also makes it a mediocre tablet but the 32GB extension to it is good somewhat.
Pros and Cons

· Limited RAM
· Limited internal storage
· Upgraded OS
· Average battery life
· Average cameras
This one is no doubt a very good looking device with nice build quality. It has a very standard set of hardware and the 3D feature in this device is very interesting and can be the worthy selling point of the tablet. The 3D rendering shows the type and enhancement in the technology which can be integrated to a tablet. Keeping aside the aesthetics and the build quality, the performance of the tablet is not very impressive. There are better performing tablets already available in market like Micromax Funbook which is hardly cheap and offering GPU feature as well which is lacking in this tablet. People who are more budget conscious and gives little importance to the performance, they can go for this tablet but for performance lovers, this is not a good options and with investment of few more pennies, a much better tablet can be purchased.
