iRULU is a specialist in developing a huge range of affordable Android tablets and eXpro X3 7-inch tablet is the latest offering in this range. The company put a very simple design on the outer. There is nothing in terms of design which turns your head or making it eye-catching. The whole dull black plastic build up is bulky, flimsy and boring. The dimensions of 7.5 x 4.8 x 0.4-inches and weight of 15.2 ounces completes the profile of eXpro X3. The front face is covered by a 7-inch screen with two-sided narrow and two-sided thick bezels. Web Camera is placed at the center on the top bezel with the upper side as rounded and below as straight matching the screen line.
This tablet is available in three color options Black, White, and Pink. Black and White are regular choices as we usually notice on most of the devices but pink is something very unique. Maybe Company wants something specific for the girls. On the back, the web camera is placed as usual on the top and iRULU trademark logo at the center. Speaker Bars and holes are available at the bottom. The power button, USB slot, and charging port is provided on the top bar. Micro SD Card, Volume rockers, and audio jack can be found at the right-side bar. Overall, complete design with the number of available options but there is nothing fancy or stylish.
The 7-inch screen size is said to be an ideal size for any tablet as it is easy to grip that device even with one hand plus it’s pretty easy to carry the device anywhere with you. This 7-inch display comes with capacitive TFT display and a 5-point touch panel. The screen can extract up to 1024 x 600 pixels resolution which is OK in terms of picture standard. The color saturation, brightness and image quality is good while using this tablet in the indoor facility but outdoor visibility is very poor. It is highly reflective and you can only see your own ghost on it.
