  • Seems like an interesting article but the video isnt loading! If this video was uploaded via Youtube, then i believe alot of people wont be able to see it!

  • second sim you can use for any gsm network(ufone, mobilink, telenor, warid and zong) not ufone in particular with this phablet. however with ufone you get free minutes thats the catch.

  • i have been using this device since 2 weeks now, the battery dies out within one day max with heavy usage but so do most smartphones. the tablet is better than the top end Qmobiles or any other device in this price in the market. 5 GB finishes too quickly though. i have used sygic app in the tablet on my trip to Naran and its awesome. I done use iptv app for tv channels but have been watching pak sri lanka matches, the quality is great outdoors but suffers in my basement.

    • Sorry for bringing this old post to life but PTCL has recently slashed 15,000 Rupees off of its price and is now going for just 10,000 Rupees. And needless to say; I’m interested in buying this tab.
      But I’ve a few questions; and I’d truly appreciate it if you spare a moment of your time to answer these queries.
      How is the performance of this tablet after few months of usage? Any noticeable lag or perhaps occasional freezes or hangs?
      Is it a fully unlocked device or just limited to PTCL Chargi? I’m interested in running Zong 4G on it, is it possible?
      Does it support OTG?
      How is the rear camera quality?
      Any thing I should be vary of before purchasing it?
      And most important question; would you recommend it?
      Thanks in advance, sir.

  • I’d rather get a Samsung Tab 4 in 14,000 and Zong 4G Mifi in 4,000 for a total cost of 18,000 with 28GB of data and a tab that’s far better and far reliable.

  • Not a good review, it feels like PTCL has paid you to convince the viewers that this is the best tab in the market. Whatever you ask that man, he says it’s good.
    Make a proper review like you used to in the past.

    • My thoughts exactly. This seems like a planted review. Didn’t trust anything because there was no proof to back it up. Just the words of a person, who for all we know, might be the son of a PTCL employee.

  • Here goes the main Freaking Point!!!
    “Please note that Chaarji Tab doesn’t come with backword compatibility, meaning that this tab won’t connect with EVO or Nitro networks in case if Chaarji network is unavailable”

    • Exactly, this is a big turn-off and it doesn’t support 3G which limits mobility factor that we associate with Mobile phones

  • who care’s about sygic?
    I’m using sygic snce 5 years. I think this app is bassically from india bcoz india map is free.
    Other wise ptcl tabs are sucks ptcl all services are very poor

  • I’m sorry but I didn’t enjoy at all, if you watch few dozens of reviews on youtube you’ll come to know how to make interesting reviews, you won’t even need two people for this kind of thing.

  • Video should have added cons other than that I’d its a pretty straightforward simple review..

  • I bought this package because of the fact that it has a lot to offer, i like the device when im using it…. pretty snappy but the problem that i faced was that this tab shouts out loud that im a PTCL tab which isnt a good thing because of the gay coloured branding done on the back of the tab which makes it more prominent and the design is also not that good but the built quality is fine….. anyways what else i could ask for in 25k

  • Nice start propakistani.. good to see you finally decided to make such reviews its not like those made by android authority, phonedog etc. but keep it up… hope to see more from you guys soon

  • It seems PeeTCL paid moti amount to mr Aamir so first time he is on screen and everything looks artificial. What a dumb paid content video.

  • Can you do me a favor and check the data consumption rate of PTCL Smart TV application?
    Like check data for a fixed streaming time using ChaarJi network , like 1 hour of TV to see if the application is actually useful in portability. (If it consumes 500MB in an hour then it would be pointless as 5GB bundle would be used up)

  • I have this device, very limited connectivity offered by PTCL in 4 or 5 cities only. I got fleeced into purchasing this device by one of the posting on this very site due to one year internet offer…if you have money to waste go for this device, PTCL is such a waste, they offer EVO compatibility of cheap charrji devices but on this tab they are not offering same…
