The tablet has 16 GB of inbuilt storage expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card. Connectivity options included in the iBall Slide Brace-X1 are 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Micro-USB and OTG support.
The design of this tablet really reminds us of the Lenovo Yoga tablet. The Brace X1 is huge as it is a 10.1 inch size tablet,The display of this device is brilliant,The tablet comes with a capacitive multitouch 26.65 cm (10.1 inch) display with an IPS screen panel which offers an HD screen resolution of 1280 x 800. The HD resolution also makes for a very good video or gaming experience.A true octa core ARM 7 Cortex processor that churns upto 1.7 GHz combined with a 2 GB DDR3 RAM will allow the user to enjoy a seamless experience with no lags. Audio is clear but several bass effects can go missing though much better if you use headphones. Few things you need to know is that the stand panel opens to two SIM slots and a microSD slot so using the stand kills the show of the tablet and also bares the SIM.
