Conclusion
A solid entry-level performance from the 79 Xenon, but there's room for improvement concerning battery life and the processor, which is just a little under-powered for anything more than basic use. It does, however, have a very good screen and offers decent performance, along with the possibility to use it as a back-up smartphone. The features that use its 3G/3G+ functionality run well. It's a multi-functional tablet that's pitched itself perfectly.
