HCL ME V1 - Expert Reviews


Although, HCL's portfolio is expanding, it has not received immediate success and in fact, is finding it difficult to compete in the tight smartphone market. The company is basically a laptop manufacturing firm which is now expanding to smartphones and tablets. However, the task is not going to be easy in the smartphone market though there is a larger opening for success in the tablet department. The credibility of HCL as a brand is above a tier2 firm though it still cannot be considered as an A-listed company. But it possesses the right technology and experience that it carries via laptop manufacturing over the years. HCL ME V1 is part of the ME tablet series for HCL that has been reasonably successful among the academic population of the country. The device features a 7 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen where the WVGA display runs on a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels.

The hardware is not the strongest that you would come across with its 1GHz single core processor backed by 512MB of RAM, which more or less can be considered as average. Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 operating system is the software platform used for the gadget, which is quite a bit far from the current Android version and thus, deprive the user from some of the latest games and apps. A 4GB of memory space forms a part of the device while the microSD card slot has the potential for the addition of another 32GB of external memory. Therefore, massive amount of data like songs, games, images and videos can be kept within the gadget without worrying about the space running out. For songs and videos, the user has applications like the music and video player. FM radio is another multimedia element that would keep the entertainment aspect alive for HCL ME V1.

A 2 megapixels primary camera is located at the back of HCL ME V1 that delivers apt results for snapping images at a resolution of 1600 by 1200 pixels. The VGA secondary camera has a resolution of 640 by 320 pixels for clicking selfies and for making video calls online. The Internet obviously plays a vital role in video calling and with facilities like Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and HTML browser, the same can be accomplished. With such features at hand, downloading of data and web surfing is relatively quick. Also, the Bluetooth version of 3.0 along with A2DP are provided alongside USB port that accomplishes the process of data exchange. The quad band frequencies supported by HCL ME V1 include 850, 900, 1800 and 1900MHz. With 3200mAh standard lithium-ion battery behind its back, the user gets a healthy boost for sustaining the device for a longer period.

HCL ME V1 comes with a MeApp store along with various built-in applications including 3D Digital Weather Clock, Bigflix, Friendcaster, HCL Touch - Domestic, Cleartrip, LinkedIn, Sweet N Spicy, Thinkfree Office, Times of India, Twitter, ME Apps, Zomato, Nimbuzz, News Reader, Saavn and Integrated Call Vibrate Option.

Operating system and UI

HCL ME V1 provides a 7 inches WVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen that runs on a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. Although, the display cannot be reckoned as the sharpest one, the screen is certainly robust and is ready to take a few blows in rough conditions.

Other Features

HCL ME V1 sports a music player that runs songs in formats like MP3 and VLC while the video player interface gives the similar luxury for watching videos. FM radio is the third pillar in the entertainment department for enjoying songs that are being played on the radio stations.


The camera aspect is not that strong with HCL ME V1 and offers a modest 2 megapixels primary camera and a VGA secondary camera. Video calling over the web is associated with the Internet facility and the front camera while the back camera is used for capturing images at a resolution of 1600 by 1200 pixels. Features like LED flash, auto focus and digital zoom also form a part of this gadget.


HCL ME V1 has covered all the features to access Internet such as Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and HTML5 browser. The download speed of the gadget is not lightening fast as we have seen in some of the flagship gadgets, but it does a reasonable job in any case.


HCL ME V1 flaunts 4GB of internal memory and should the need arises, the user can add more data including songs, games, images and videos with the help of the 32GB microSD card slot. RAM is moderate with 512MB that has the capacity to handle day-to-day normal operations.

Other Features

Games and Apps are quite legion with the presence of Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, though one cannot help but feel that the domain would have been much larger in scope with the presence of an updated version of Android. The game of Angry Birds remains the popular game for the user along with WhatsApp and other apps in HCL ME V1.


A 3200mAh standard lithium-ion battery is decent in isolation but there are other gadgets, which offer much more power backup than what HCL ME V1 offers. The user still gets a decent performance out of its prescribed power backup although access of Internet at times is more power consuming than any other activity.


HCL ME V1 is deprived of Wi-Fi tethering capability but the device does offer Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and HTML. USB port 2.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 are given as well to transfer and receive data from one gadget to another. The device works on quad band frequencies of 900MHz and 1800MHz respectively.

Other Features

January 9, 2014: It has almost been a year since the launch of HCL ME V1 that came with a 7 inches screen and Android Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system. The software platform may seem quite primitive in today's context and still has no upgrading option available. However, the gadget has been a favored a bit in the academic population of the country in the last year or so. Their case would be further helped by the drop in the price of the tablet to ₹ 6,854. The highlights are as follows:

*        7 inches WVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen

*        Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system

*        3200mAh standard lithium-ion battery

*        1GHz single core processor

*        512MB RAM

*        2 megapixels primary camera + VGA secondary camera

*        4GB internal memory + 32GB microSD card slot
