Zync Z999 Plus
The newest tablet to make the list of our already tested models is Zync’s Rs. 10,000-Rs. 15,000 Z999 Plus. The manufacturer is not as know in this domain as others. But the truth of the matter is, they produced quite a number of tablets of decent quality. This model is by far their best yet. It features better specs and features compared to the company’s past work. The review we have here is going to introduce you to this device and show you its pros and cons.
As an introduction, the Zync Z999 has a bunch of notable specs. Like a 7″ touchscreen, an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, a camera packing 2 megapixels, another one with 0.3 megapixels, a single-core 1.5GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 4200 mAh battery, 480 x 800 pixels of resolution and 8GB of storage space (expandable if you need the extra space). The connectivity area is represented by 1 microSD card slot, 1 mic/charging port, 1 SIM card slot, a jack for your headphones, 1 miniUSB and1 HDMI out. Support for Bluetooth is also available.
The design of the Zync Z999 Plus is executed with attention to build quality. But the manufacturer didn’t get rid of the glossy front. We could grip this tablet very well and not even once did it slip out of our fingers. The display gives off a decent performance and it allows for really good pinch to zoom activities. However, colors are not going to shine through. Viewing angles kind of sucked in our tests. The touchscreen tends to show glare. The keyboard that we used to type this review out was also good. The feedback it gave was spot-on.
Short battery life
Because memory is poor, day-to-day activities implying a lot of navigating, playing games and so will give way to freezes. But sound on this tablet is of good quality. We didn’t really need headphones, except when we didn’t want to wake other people up because of the music we listened to. The processor will not strike you as very fast. That was why working with the World Wide Web caused never ending rendering. And lags, of course. Even if there were not a gazillion of them.
As soon as we were done with the above areas, we turned to the battery. Which enabled this gadget to have a life span of any other cheap tablet. Which is 4-5 hours, depending on what you are using it for everyday.
As we expected, neither of the two cameras on this tablet did well. In the end, it all came down to how light was in our room or outside. Because if it was low, then the pics and videos looked disappointing. If light was of superior quality, results were better. Not by much, but still.
If you are a fan of WhatsApp, you will be glad to know that the Zync Z999 Plus can easily turn into a smartphone and thus offer its user the possibility to make good use of that application.
The Zync Z999 Plus turned out to be quite an enjoyable little tablet. It will not make you go gaga like many of its rivals do. But it will not leave you indifferent, either. The price, the performance, the looks, the specs and the features are all good evidence in its favor. For beginners especially, this will be a nice present.
