The tablet is powered by a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2420 processor, coupled with 1GB RAM and a PowerVR SGX540 GPU. The tablet performs decently when it comes to doing routine tasks. It offers 8GB of internal storage which is expandable to 32GB via microSD card. However, out of the 8GB memory we were able to only access 4.39GB.

The Fonepad comes with a 4270mAH battery and we were satisfied with the backup that it offered.
The tablet also offers a Power Saver mode to optimise and extend battery life. It can also be configured to behave differently during different usage scenarios like reading books, watching videos, browsing the Internet, among others.
