The Bottom Line
Idolian IdolPad Plus is clearly a good value for money product and one of the bestsellers, but, certainly is not the best. Buy this tab only for performing basic activities like reading eBooks, watch HD videos, surf internet and playing less intensive games. If somehow, you don't like this device, you may also take a look at Tagital Tablet A13 Q88 which is priced similar to the Idolian IdolPad Plus.Read full review...

Idolian IdolPad Plus comes with single core Cortex A8 processor clocked at 1.2GHz and 512MB DDR3 RAM storage. The performance of this tablet is considerably good while running basic apps, but, as soon as you try to run intensive apps, the performance becomes somewhat sluggish. Overall, while you won’t be able to run resource intensive apps on this device, you will have no problem performing tasks like eBook reading, web browsing, playing games like Angry Birds and watch videos.
Web Browsing & Video Chat
The tablet has 1.3MP front facing camera which is not of world class quality, but, still gets the job done allowing to do video calls via Skype. Unfortunately, the camera is not built for taking high quality pictures, so don’t plan to do photography with this device.
IdolPad Plus comes with Flash support which allows to watch flash videos from sites like Youtube. Forget to mention, Netflix also works on this tablet.
The tablet comes with 4GB of fixed internal storage space which can also be expanded further by upto 32GB using a Micro SD card.
