There are certain issues like low internal storage available for Apps storage. This device features an Intel processor but, a Snapdragon processor would’ve been much better. The battery capacity of 4000MAh might not be matching the requirements of an 8-inch device. Inspite of such issues, lets hope this device easily reaches out to the people and becomes a success.
