Review: EAFT D90T Destiny 9.7 inch Tablet.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAEAFT Technologies is a Bangalore based Indian company, which manufactures Android tablets with 3 different variants available. The one we are reviewing – the Destiny D90T – is its top of the line 9.7″ version. EAFT also makes sure that this package comes at a pocket friendly price of around 14 to 15 thousand INR in various parts of the Indian market. So let’s find out how it fairs.

Box Contents:

On opening the box the first thing you will see is the tablet, of course. Beneath which one finds the standard set of accessories: a charger, a USB cable, a USB OTG connector, a pair of earphones, and a warranty card.

Build:

As soon as you hold the tablet in your hand you realize it’s heavy. It weighs 960g and is best suited when held by both the hands to avoid fatigue or strain. The build is fairly decent for a tablet of this price. It offers a scratch resistant back panel, which is made out of plastic with the EAFT logo prominently situated in the center.

The right side has the majority of the buttons including the volume rockers, microUSB port, HDMI output, charging port, a speaker grill, a headphone jack, as well as a microphone. There’s just a power button on the top right corner.

Hardware:

The Destiny D90T comes with a 9.7 inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1024*768 which is HD. This is good enough for watching movies, playing games and web browsing but small text might miss some details if u happen to read a lot of ebooks.

Under the hood the tablet is powered by an ARM Cortex A9 dual core CPU which clocked at 1.6 GHz along with 1 GB of RAM. It also brings in a Mali 400 GPU to satisfy one’s gaming needs. So the hardware is pretty powerful on the spec sheet, and according to our tests, it surely is a performer.

The tablet has WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and microUSB for charging and data syncing. The USB OTG comes handy while travelling as one can easily connect a pendrive or a portable Hard disk to extend the storage or view movies or images. The battery is also a massive 8000mAh which is very good. Even after a heavy day of usage, you will find yourself having enough juice for the second day.

Software:

On the software side EAFT likes to keep it neat and simple. Unlike many other manufacturers EAFT gives its customers a very stock-ish vanilla Android experience. Android 4.0 works pretty well and does not show any sluggish behavior as such. We like EAFTs idea of software on this tablet as it came in with only the most essential apps and no useless bloatware.

Also the Google Play Store is accessible and none of the apps are blocked. Evernote and Photobooth come pre-installed as productivity apps.

Conclusion:

Providing a neat, clean, and snappy experience with a 9.7inch form factor is big plus of this tablet. The overall display quality is not bad as it delivers wide viewing angles and good amount of brightness. In our tests it performed well while web browsing, video streaming, and gaming as well. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich adapted well to this tablet for a great overall experience. This tablet delighted us.

Although the build quality is not top of the line, we think it’s too much to expect from a tablet at this price bracket. We advise you to purchase a cover in case gravity takes over, so that you do not break the tablet. Otherwise, in every other way, the tablet gives what it promises.

  1. Hi there, thanks for the review, came across this tablet while searching for budget tablets in Flipkart. Your video review was good. Can you please tell me do we have customer support for this brand? I am from Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, and how is the following experiences:
    1. Build
    2. Display
    3. Audio and Video players (what formats does it play and what is the maximum resolution that it can handle?)
    4. Is it good for browsing and where can I buy it at a lower price than in Flipkart 😀

    • Hi Vinay,
      Thanks for the feedback.
      Customer support can be made available via email or telephone, all support and service center details are available on their website.
      Moving on to your first question – the build is not great but its average, it wouldn’t survive drops so needs care(i dont think a 10″ tablet would be dropped so easy so not an issue.)
      Display – is an HD LCD display, viewing angles are decent and display delivers good quality videos and games . All major video formats are supported upto full 1080p resolution(mp4,divx,3gp,flash,etc) support can be added by using MX player.
      As far as browsing is concerned it is great if you use chrome, the default browser is not bad but it does not perform well with heavy pages sometimes.
      Flipkart gives a good price and tension free replacement, u can also try local shops or shop from the EAFT website itself.
