The mTAB gets decent design and comes for a good price. There is no fanciness in this device and comes slim in nature. The mTAB is a lightweight device that weighs 0.25 kg, so you get good opportunity to carry it along with you while traveling. The dimension of this device measures 19.4 cm by 11.75 cm by 1.28 cm.

The Mercury mTAB Neo tablet sports a 7-inch TFT with 16:9 capacitive touch panel screen. The display provides 800 by 480 pixels of resolution. The screen resolution is not that interesting for the users, but still you can enjoy watching videos and pics, but at a bit of blurry views.

The device comes packed with 4 GB internal storage support and also can be expanded with the help of a microSD card of up to 32 GB. So you can enjoy saving plenty of movies and other files and carry them wherever you want.
Mercury mTab Neo Operating System :
The only hard luck is that the device still comes with Google’s Android 2.2 Froyo operating system which runs very slowly as compared to the higher variants such as Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich. Mercury has released higher variants, but did not provided any update on this old OS version.
Mercury mTab Neo Processor :
The Mercury mTAB Neo is run by a powerful 1 GHz Dual Core Cortex A9 processor that comes mated with a 512 MB DDR3 RAM. Well, we should consider that the device was launched earlier and accordingly the specs are good.

The mTAB Neo comes equipped with a 2 megapixel rear camera for clicking pictures. With this, a 0.3 megapixel front facing camera is also available which makes your video calling and conferencing more fun.

The resolution of primary camera of this device (2 MP) features 1600 by 1200 pixels.
Mercury mTab Neo Battery :
The tablet sits under its hood a Li-ion 4000 mAh battery which we have also seen in Mercury mTab. The company promises that the device will give a constant run of around 4 to 6 hours. So you can expect an average run.
Mercury mTab Neo Price :
The Mercury mTab Neo price is set at Rs. 15,999. However, at this price range you get a lot of tablets in the market with good features. If you require better Android version then consider some other devices or check out the Mercury mTab Rio which comes with Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Also, the device has powerful dual core processor which is good.
For average level tablet, the Mercury mTab Neo is not a bad deal, but there are many things to consider before buying. If you are looking for a low cost Android devices then check out the other good tablets of the same range. The features of this device are good, but still not the best. You will get good features and specs on mid-range tablets. There is Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and other connectivity options. There is also dual camera provided for convenience. Though the rear lid of this device is made of glossy plastic, but it does not give cheap look. All in all, a device for around Rs. 16,000 might not worth your money as there are other good devices as well in the market at low price than this.
