India based iBerry has unleashed couple of Android 4.4 KitKat offerings without much fanfare into the entry-level market. Well, we are talking about the silent launch of Auxus Linea L1 smartphone and Auxus AX04 tablet. Both the devices are priced in the sub Rs 7,000 price bracket making them attractive offerings in this range. Here is a quick review on the specifications and capabilities of the tablet.
Camera and Internal Storage
Being an entry-level tablet, the iBerry Auxus AX04 is given average camera functionalities that definitely are not a surprise. The tablet features a 2 MP primary camera at its back that is accompanied by a VGA front-facing shooter. Both these cameras are capable of capturing basic snaps and videos and this is common among the low-end offerings in this price range.
Again, on the storage front, the tablet appears to be average with a low internal storage capacity of 4 GB. For the users who feel that this storage space is too low to house the operating system, default software and installed applications. To resolve this issue, iBerry has included a micro SD expansion card slot that can support up to 64 GB of additional storage capacity that is impressive. While the low-end tablet offerings usually come with only 32 GB of expandable storage, the inclusion of 64 GB storage in this tablet is appreciable.
Processor and Storage
Powering the iBerry Auxus AX04 is a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor of unspecified chipset that is teamed up with Mali 400 GPU and a paltry 512 MB of RAM. This combination is not too impressive as there are fewer cores and low RAM that cannot handle the processing requirements and multi-tasking to great levels. However, nothing better than this combination can be expected from an entry-level offering.
The battery capacity in the tablet is 3,000 mAh that appears to be strong enough to power sufficient juice to it under moderate usage. This battery should be capable of powering the required strength to the processor and RAM combination.
Display and Features
The iBerry tablet is fitted with an average 7 inch IPS panel that boasts of a screen resolution of 1024×600 pixels. While the screen size and the resolution are in no way different from the other low-end budget tablet offerings available in the market, the IPS technology will pave way in rendering excellent viewing angles and sharpness, contrast and rest.
The Auxus AX04 runs on the latest iteration of Google’s mobile OS, Android 4.4 KitKat. And, the tablet includes dual SIM card slots with support for 2G voice calling on both cards and other options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB OTG.

What we Dislike

- Not a good processor
Price and Comparison
The iBerry Auxus AX04 is priced competitively at Rs 5,990 in order provide a tough competition to the other budget tablet offerings in the market. However, it is certain that iBerry has compromised in certain departments to keep its pricing very low. Well, the device misses out on aspects such as decent photography capabilities, 3G voice calling and connectivity and others. If these missing aspects were included in the device, the iBerry tablet running on Android KitKat would have become one of the best solid tablet in the budget price bracket.
