When I was intimated that I have to review AppTab Sleek. I expected a shoddy, cheap plastic tablet with the traumatizing touch screen, but I was amazed upon receiving the tablet in person. All my apprehensions vanished as I held the tab in my hands.
The tablet looks and feels much more upmarket in comparison to the price and the brand value. Though the packaging could have been better.
Once you start it up you are greeted by the android bot like every other android run tab. The booting time is good but it could have been better. AppTab Sleek runs on a Cortex A8 1.5 GHz Processor and the speed is sufficiently good.

Looks and Build Quality
It looks good from all angles, No cheap quality plastic, No shoddy buttons and No dangling and crying for help panels. The construction is good and the tab is sturdy to hold in your hands. The build quality is extremely good for the price tag it carries and It doesn’t look Made in PRC in anyway.

Well What can one say when you have a 1.5 GHz Processor running ICS with 512 Mb RAM, Games and apps do not lag and load easily.
I found the touch response a bit on the lower side as sometime the inputs went to the exactly opposite end of the screen, Maybe just because of the plastic coating on the screen.
The AppTab Sleek has a number of features which are very functional and useful,
1. Internet Connectivity: Apptab Sleek provide you with an option to connect to the Internet through WiFi and External 3G Dongles. However I tried using my 2G CDMA Reliance Dongle and Voila it was supported.
2. Connectors: Apptab Sleek has three connectors. 1 Full USB 2.0 Port, 1 Mini USB Port and Once Mini HDMI Port, The Tablet also has a Micro SD card slot and support even the Flash drive through its full size USB port.
3. Quick Access Buttons: Apptab Sleek has two Physical button and Six Touch Button to help in navigating through the tablet and bringing out the most of it.
4. Camera: AppTab Sleek is equipped is with Two Cameras. The primary camera is 2 Mega Pixels and the Secondary is 0.3 Mega Pixels (VGA).
Battery life is pretty decent of the AppTab Sleek having a 3000 mAh. I watched around two movies back to back. On browsing the battery life is decreased considerably and I drained out the battery within 3 Hours when online videos and browsing was done.
AppTab Sleek is a very good value for money Tablet. In cases you are not very brand cautious and can live with only the functionality of a product rather than its name and lineage. Than AppTab Sleek can be a good choice for you.
The processor is good and backed up with the possibility of a USB dongle support and Twin Cameras its is a good buy.
The company has a SSL secured site for purchasing the Tablets online and it is not available with other e-commerce sites .
