The best feature-rich tablet is Alcatel A3 10. There are some tablets out there in the market that are cheaper or more powerful or maybe with some extra features, but the Alcatel A3 10 gives the best combination of all.
The overall best Alcatel A3 10 is slim budget tablet under 10000RS.

This is the only model right now available in the market with Android 7 nougat running and under Rs.10000.
The model comes with a good rubbery groovy finish which gives the good grip to hold the tablet, most of the times the budget tablet are bought by the parents to kids for gaming and entertainment purposes so the holding grip is up to the mark even though there is no special parental control software in the tablet. The volcano black gives a classy look and elegant finish makes the tab look more premium.
The big screen of 10″ gives more visual entertainment for the customers with good quality resolution. The two front firing speakers in the top and bottom once again make the tablet more prior to the competitors for the entertainment purposes. The audio quality is also amazing from this budget tab.
The camera is not so good and it can be used only for capturing some important pieces of information so the peoples who take photography as an art Alcatel A310 is not their choice and from my personal research and findings for all the tabs under Rs.10000 the camera quality is poor or not up to the mark.
The charging cable comes along with the tab is also an inferior quality but from the customer point of view, it does not matter since most of them are going with some superior brand USB charging cables like Belkin.
The sunlight readability of the tab is very good and all the sensors are of high standards and working excellent. It gives a good support to the gaming peoples and no tension in playing motion sensor games.
The battery backup of the tab is superb and this is one of the important characteristics which helped Alcatel A3 10 to become the editors choice. As were as a tab is concerned the battery backup is very important for no stop surfing, gaming or watching videos.
During my research time, for youtube streaming for 2 hours, it consumed almost 23-25% of the battery whereas for watching the movie for a one and half hour the battery consumed is almost 13-15% and an idle night drain of 5-6%. If you are good in mathematics by this time you might have understood the excellent battery performance of Alcatel A3 10.
Alcatel A3 10 is having one year warranty on the product and 6-month warranty on the accessories.
Unlike your personal phone, a tablet is commonly used for entertainment purposes or surfing in the YouTube so Display and sound have an elevated importance when we start talking about a tab. And a good tab should possess a high-resolution screen with a wide brightness range.
Alcatel A310 is coming with a superior size of 10.1″ display size 1280*800 pixels display resolution
The display is coming with an IPS (In Plane Switching) technology and 16M display colors.
The latest Android 7 nougat operating system is one of the highlights of Alcatel A3 10.
It holds a 2GB RAM with 16GB ROM which supports a good performance and speed, and it is sufficient for a normal app requirement other wise we have to break out budget plan or go with our runner up Lenovo Phab 2. A tablet’s large screen also makes it better for gaming than our personal phone, so it’s nice if the tablet has the horsepower to play the latest mobile titles.
Alcatel A310 supports 4G LTE, WCDMA, GSM networks and having a hybrid sim assist.
CAMERA AND SOUND
Alcatel A310 is supported with the dual camera, a 5 MP primary camera and 2 MP secondary camera with out flash and placed the camera in one corner of the tab.
The front firing two speakers give an admirable quality sound from a budget tab.
4600 mAh lithium polymer battery gives supremacy for Alcatel A310 from the competitors.
From our research, we found practically the battery backup is excellent. Unlike your phone, tablets will not be in your hand all the time so obviously, we used to forget to charge the tablets, so having a higher battery capacity is essential for a good tablet.
If the idle time or standby time can’t be measured in days we can’t recommend you a tablet a good one, so Alcatel in a recommended one in the battery.
Obviously, you will not have time to watch movies or videos by a live streaming so the only way to sort this is downloading the videos and watching it later for that we require a fine storage, Alcatel A3 10 provides an internal storage of 16GB memory and an expandable memory with micro SD card up to 128GB which is sufficient for a normal usage and it’s excellent for a tablet under 10000 rupees.
It’s important for a tablet to run a recent version of Android. Right now we draw the line at Android 7.0 Nougat the best in market Alcatel A3 10 gives this software with the benchmark of under 10000 rupees. Nougat added native split-screen apps and improved the low-power Doze mode that saves power while the screen is asleep, both of which are particularly important for tablets. Plus, tablets tend to get software updates less frequently than phones, so you don’t want to start at a disadvantage.
