LiewCF’s Buying guide
If you have limited budget and looking for a phablet (phone + tablet), ACER Iconia Tab 7 should be in your list.
It will run most apps without problem but you probably can forget about taking sharp photos with its 2MP camera. The 6 hours battery life is another concern, too.
Alternatively, ASUS FonePad 7 (FE170CG) (8GB version) dropped price to RM429 in August 2014. It has less phone storage space but supports dual-SIM and longer battery life.
