User review of iball slide 3g 7334 tablet

USER REVIEW ON I BALL SLIDE 3G 7344
you can see my unboxing video in–(will be updated soon)
the specifications of the tablet are quite amazing for such a low price.
Thanks to the local I BALL Distributes i got this product on my hand the very next day after its release in KERALA/INDIA.
i Ball claims that slide 3g 7334 is the first dual Sim budget tablet in India.

The specifications of the tablet are
1)7″  multitouch capacitive WSVGA screen.
2)ARM Cortex A9 1.0GHz processor.
3)Dual sim dual standby.
4)Dual 2G , single 3G connectivity.
5)Dual camera with .3MP at front and 2MP at rear.
6) the most amazing feature at this low cost is the availability of  Bluetooth and GPS(E-GPS and A-GPS).
7)HDMI out port ,Mini usb OTG port.
8)512 MB RAM(DDR3) of which 280 MB used by the system.
9) 8GB inbuilt memory divided as 502MB apps to install memory location and 5.7GB internal sd ..
10)External sd card support upto 32GB

The tablet is imported by Best IT World(INDIA) Pvt LTD
The Maximum Retail Price(MRP) is 13,999/-Rs
You can get it for 10990/-Rs directly from the distributes or at a slightly higher cost from dealers.

The good parameters about the tablet
1)Gives a backup of about 10 to 14 Hrs for normal users and 5 Hrs for heavy users and a standby of 45 Hrs.
2) The inbult G-Sensor is quite fast to respond so its good for game addicts.
3)the Front camera (.3 Mp) have better quality and light  parameter of the lens ensures maximum bright pictures in dark or shady places.
4)The USB OTG is able to connect to keyboard,mouse,pen drives etc. but no idea as to why it was’nt factory shipped with OTG cable in 1st place.
5)The inbuilt vibration indicator is present.
6) Light indicator is also present but at the rear end, near to Mini usb port.

The problems faced while using the tablet are
1) The screen size to front panel size ratio is  <1 so its quite difficult to find correct screen guard
2) A software Bug was detected in the factory shipped OS. once switched off and a microsd card inserted will result in abnormal response from the display. seems like some kind of the micro SD detector code malfunction
3) Unable to connect external 3G modems via USB OTG.( MIGHT BE BECAUSE IT IS SIM 3G SUPPORTED VERSION)
4) Absence of Camera flash for rear camera.
5) by default it lacks the following apps
Google Bookmarks Sync.apk  (Click  download )
Google Calender Sync.apk (Click  download )
Google Contact Sync.apk (Click  download )
Talk.apk (Click  download )
because of which the google contacts,calender,bookmarks from Google server are never synced to the phone.
upon installation of the above mentioned apps it works as fit as a fiddle.,
6)The default file explorer ES Explorer is set to default directly as sdcard, due to which the external sd card is never visible, so change it to mnt so the following folders could be visible
sdcard(internal SD of 5.7GB)
sdcard2(external micro sd ( 2GB-32GB)
usbOTG(pen drives or other storage media connected via USB )
I personally recommend FILE EXPERT app as top user friendly file explorer
7) The necessity to restart the TAB after keyboard or mouse is connected via usb OTG is quite a waste of time.
8) The on screen keys of(BACK,MAIN MENU,RUNNING APPS) should have been placed  on the right hand side of the tab like its predecessor would have been more user friendly especially while traveling.

I)windows driver for iball slide 3g 7334 installable version download
II)drver .dll and .sys files download

If the above mentioned links don’t work. Then the driver could be installed using the windows app superonclick. It is originally designed to root android devices,but driver install is an option. So connect the tab and use the above mentioned app.

    • Battery is 3100mAh lithium ion battery… I get a battery life upto 10hours for moderate use… the case is good quality cloth.. reliable…but once u put on the case the heat from the rear of tablet is trapped…the case also blocks the rear camera… and main speaker sound is reduced once u put on the case..
      Hope it helps…did u buy this tab?

  3. Gaurav Sharma says:

    • Try a factory reset..keep display always dry..tgus display is highly sensitive so u won’t even have to touch it…atleaat for me the screen responses even befor I touch the screen..so keep oilly and othe electric field conductive substance of the screen..
      Again if it happens,record the video on another camera and complain to service center..

  6. BHARATHIDASAN says:

    Hi I went to service centre in chennai Richie street. they changed my touch and now it is working good. My slide 7334 is having 1GB Ram

  7. Rahul Gawli says:

    Can i play games as temple run, temple run 2, subway aurf etc.. Pls let me kno soon s i wanna buy this 7334 tablet

  8. BHARATHIDASAN says:

    today morning i watched one movie and after some 30 minutes my battery got heated abnormally and switched off automatically. Now it is not switching on and even it is not getting charging. Again I need to go to service centre in chennai Richie street. Friends pls don’t buy Iball.

    • As , all tablets have been designed and made in china, certain models have battery issues, the customer care will deal with it and even replace battery within same day if they have enough reasons..

      • BHARATHIDASAN says:

        hi i went to service centre on16.02.13. They tested my slide and told me there is no problem. But I gave it to them to keep it for two days for testing. This time i noticed some 4 people brought their iball products(mobile andi 4, iball 6012,iball 7334,9inch slide, which is very new are having problems. Even the products which they are giving as a replacement is having problems. Atleast a product should work for 6months without problem. But in Iball They are selling the products with manufacturing defects. This slide 7334 is my last product in Ball. I will never purchase any of the Iball produts.

  9. dheeraj says:

    Hi Friends Yesterday on 18th I purchased This Iball 7334 and just one hour before its switched off suddenly and now its not responding and just dead………………………………….

  10. BHARATHIDASAN says:

    hi dheeraj, first try to charge it, If it is not getting charge then take it to stores where you bought and ask for replacement , most probably they will tell u to go to service centre. Then go to service centre and tell the problem. Based on the problem they will either repair it or replace it.

  11. Vishal Thakur says:

  12. fauzia khan says:

    hey hii all…i read all ur comments…i was just moving to buy iball slide 3g 7334 tablet as m vry muchh liking n intrrested in dis product…but after gone through all ur comments…m bit confused…wether to go for it o not…plz suggest me further as each penny z imp fr me to invest in a best product…plz helpme

    thnx in advance :-)

    • The battery for all chiness imported tablets will be a issue..it depends on ur luck.
      Rest all ckt and hardwares will be fine as they are tested and certified for export..
      Whereas the battery condition might vary with temp,pressure etc.. so once u get any tablet at hand check the battery backup time with maximum usage of the tab..if its satisfactory use them, else give written complain to service center.. the rest is in the hand of service center if to change the battery or to reject ur request letter by telling the hardware is fine and blah …blah..blah… .
      If u want to buy 7344 tab.. I have personally found problems with display usage while charging plug is connected , and absence of battery low thershold disable power on system…
      Coz of which I have had issues with auto restart function available in setting..
      And reguarding the display, I remove the usb charge plug and then the display works fine..

      Battery backup works for almost 1.5 days of light usage or standby on 3g network with internet..
      Hope this helps u to decide if to buy this product or not..

  13. dhananjay says:

    Hey Lawrence,
    thanks for nice review. I checked this tab at a store & found it indeed has 1 GB RAM. I am just hesitant to buy as I want a tab with fm transmitter, 3g sim calling, magnetic compass, gps, HD display.
    I Ball 3g 7334 has all features except magnetic compass, also don’t know how to use fm tansmitter (I tried at store, it says need to connect enhancement and there were no music files hence could not really test). Any suggestion?

    • there is a limitation with fm transmitter..
      the inbuilt transmitter replaces the loud speaker once switched on..
      that is , if u play any audio file once the fm transmitter is ON ,theplayed music or sound is transmitter..

      unlike traditional fm transmitters , iball doesnt allow direct broadcast input from microphone..so u will have to record ur sound via sound recorder and connected the headset that acts as antenna and ten playback the recorded audio once fm transmitter is switched on..

      i have tested the fm transmitter with a normal 50 cm head set wire and found a range of about 30 meters line of sight..
      now very powerfull but manageable..
      hope it helps…

    • hi, i too managed to change my mother board of my tablet though service center, even though now it says we have 1 gb ram, the antutu benchmark app says we have only 555 usable ram. something tells me that we got the new motherboard of iball slide 7334 i. its a new edition launched but not quite famous and often confused with our model. the 7334 i has 1 gb ram and back camera flash. so our motherboard is of 7334i and firmware is of 7334 itself , hence the remaining ram is unusable.

  14. ashokkumar A says:

    .exe file of driver is not getting installed and whr to copy thee driver files???

    • Anonymous says:

      connect ur device to pc, and when asked for driver files, direct it to the dll files and inf files.
      not sure if this method works for all, but still worth a try

    does anyone know how to connect ethernet plug and 3g/2g usb modem on to this tab and connect to internet.
    there is an app called ppp in market, but it needs root access, but i dont have the usb cable to root my device.
    any alternate methods would be helpfull.
    thanks

    hi, everyone, i was also impressed with all those features shown and all those are true also,a few days after i purchased the tab i find the problem that once i switch off the tab its not getting switched on , it happened two times with me and when ever i connect the charger a blue light is emitting instead of either green or red. dont know what to do.. can anyone guide me and what could be the reason for this…..?

    • Sorry , such a problem haven’t happen to me till now.. any way connect the charger and try pressing the reset button. And if it doesn’t still work , u might need to take it to customare care..

    • the symptoms looks like u have undercharged your battery . connect the usb charger for 2+ hours and finally press the reset button might solve the issue. if still having the problem, return them back to service center immediatly

  29. SathishKumarP says:

    I do wanna buy a tab.. Can anyone suggest me a good one..
    My budget is around 10k..

    • where are you from?
      if u are looking for tabs with all features under 10k, i suggest u start looking for huawei tablets or if u can get 12k, u can get a good phablets(phones+tablets).

  30. BHARATHIDASAN says:

    Dear friends, Please don’t purchase this tablet. It’s screen is not good, it disturbs the eyes while playing in portrait mode. It gets hang while playing temple run 1 and 2. It wont play hd 720p videos smoothly. Best way to select a tab is just visit any showrooms like poorvika, univercell, where they keep demo mobiles/tablets for display. just check the available model with them. And google it for full phone specifications.Then read the reviews for the models and then buy it.

    Hi,

    I am unable to install the windows driver, can anyone pls suggest how to do that. I already tried above 2 options (I)windows driver for iball slide 3g 7334 installable version download II)drver .dll and .sys files download) but none of them is working in my windows 7. so if you have the workable driver package then pls give me d/l link.

    • I have updated the directions.

      • Anonymous says:

        Many thanks, but pls specify updated direction where? in I)windows driver for iball slide 3g 7334 installable version download link or II)drver .dll and .sys files download link?

      • If the above mentioned links don’t work. Then the driver could be installed using the windows app superonclick. It is originally designed to root android devices,but driver install is an option. So connect the tab and use the above mentioned app.

  36. swathi says:

    i used the tablet while charging ,now it is working, just dead what shall i do??????

    • Once the tablet is connected to power plug, does any light indications show up?
      If yes , try the reset switch and then switch it on.
      If no, then the battery volt is lower than limit. So returning it to customer care center is best option..

  37. swathi says:

    no light was indicated …it was stuck, unable to press any keys

  38. swathi says:

    I switched on the reset button now it is working………… thank you for ur help

    how much capacity of external memory storage can connected to iball 3G 7334?

  40. Nazareth says:

    Is upgrade available for it

  41. Nazareth says:

    is shivaji font available for android

    • lorentz says:

      Yes update from 4.0.4 to 4.1.2 is available…no idea about any fonts

      • BHARATHIDASAN says:

        where can we get the update. pls tell

      • lorentz says:

        All updates can be optained from serice center only.. when i updated from 4.0.4 to 4.1.2 the battery life reduced from 12 hours to 3 hours.. so i once again asked the service center to roll back to 4.0.4 .. now i get a battery life of 13 hours on continous wifi 3g tether and minimum of 2 users connected all the time..

  42. john says:

    this was a nice review,
    but i had a similar problem of external card cannot be recognized, even after updating the es file explore, down loaded your said app it does recognize but not in setting it doesn’t, couldn’t follow your rst solution , pleas HELP?, all this to shift apps to external sd card,
    2) if you root the phone does it void warrentee ? can it also upgraded 4.2…9 (if you have a custom rom please mention)

    • lorentz says:

      App backups can be copied to sd card.. and certain apps can be installed on external sd card directly.. Rooting will void warranty so unroot it before u give it to service center. And latest firmware and images for this pirticular device are hard to obtain from internet as this chinese device is oem for iball.. only the service center has the image for 4.2 image.. I have had certain problems with battery backup in that firmware.. So the service center guy rolled back to 4.0.4 and did some resistor unsoldering on the motherboard.. now I get more than a day of backup in normal or light usage

    • lorentz says:

      I have also read there is a universal custom os for android tablets.. some tweaks are mentioned on website..its really to complicated ..so I don’t know much abt it..

  43. abishek says:

    hi,
    im not satisfied with the services given by service center in pune, i purchased a 7334i tab 4 moths back and battery got drained completely cause of that the tab is not starting, i told the service center to check it with a charged battery buy they are least interested with my suggestion, they have considered it as dead piece and kept it with them. its now a week and they haven’t worked on it still…..they need a week more…..

    • lorentz says:

      Take it bck and give to another service center.. and this time don’t tell them.. just speak like we know nothing and they know everything.. just tell its not switching on. And charger is not charging tab..give both.

  45. vijay singh says:

    why my i ball get auto back without touch screen is it problem?

  46. The iball slide 7334 tablet is really impressive one which i am using since 4 months.The processor is quite faster than similar tablets. The look is also very cute. The camera picture quality is pretty clear. After all this phone is a best phone amongst other similar phones.

  47. vikki says:

    hi i bought iball 7344q-10 tablet yesterday. it was working fine till then. but today when i on the device the battery is drained too much even with the power off. also there is some kind of touch screen problem. it is like working in reverse. when i tried to touch on right , left area is selected. WTF!!! its just one day. can anyone know about this problem. it will be my last i ball product in my life.. also do anyone know how to root this device and is there is any custom rom for it…..
    pls if anyone know a solution about this problem pls let me know my email id is vikkix7@gmail,com

    • lorentz says:

      hi, the device can be rooted easily using usb download mode and similiar rooting app on windows pc after connecting the pc to tab via usb.
      i too had a bad experiance with iball tab. i now think micromax would have been a better option.

  48. vijay singh says:

    Ya vikki

    Ma tab have same reversing problem even I go to the customer care they format my tab bt problem remain exist.

    • lorentz says:

      can you please explain the problem with your tab?
      the os the customer care gives us is not a bug free version of android. its modified to add lot of bloatware apps of iball.
      rooting and deleting all such apps might solve most of the hanging os problems

It has 16 GB memory which I cannot use. A few days ago, it used to have many games at a go and it was working well. Please help.
    Thanking you in anticipation.

    I have this tablet but i am facing a storage problem .It has 5.7 gb free storage but i used total of only 700mb (approx) but it shows free space of only 1.8gb.Can any one help in out?

    • lorentz says:

      Have u tried formatting it once. Or install file explorer app and find out which app/game/downloaded file is using most of your space. Take it to customer care is best option if u have warranty
