The single biggest differentiator in the Destiny D90T tablet has to be Worldspace radio. A total of 72 hours of music, refreshed daily and DRM-protected, is available across 12 channels. The service is stated to be free for the first six months of usage. 8/10 on innovative features.
The tablet looks pretty ordinary as if to attempt an iPad, with a black bezel, 4:3 aspect ratio, etc and the build feels pretty plasticky, as if deliberately built to a price. Edges may feel to be slightly sharp when holding. As a result, the Destiny D90T scores a low 5/10 on look-and-feel.

The tablet weighs 610 grams, which is just about what the competition offers for this screen size. The Micromax Funbook Pro is a 10-inch tablet and weighs 600 grams. However, the weight is lesser than the Spice Stellar Pad MI 1010, which is another 10-inch tablet but weighs 667 grams. Both the cameras, front and rear, have a 2MP sensor, which is average.
The Android version is just 4.0.4 , which is obselete in terms of the competition offered. The interface and touch responsiveness is just about average and in terms of pre-loaded applications, you mainly have office suites, Evernote, Dropbox and Photobooth (in addition to Worldspace).
When fully charged, streaming a movie on YouTube over Wi-Fi caused the battery to drain in a little over 7 hours, leaving the Mitashi Play BE-200 as the only sub-15000 tablet with a better battery. 8/10 for the 8000 mAh battery, considering the tablet’s size.

As of the time of writing, EAFT Technologies has a launch offer price for this model of Rs 14,990, which is otherwise meant to be Rs. 16,990. 6/10 for the price.

The tablet comes with a fitting 1.6 GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor which performs well and shows no lag/jerks while running graphics intensive games, combined with 1 GB of DDR III RAM. 7/10 for the processor.
The screen is an HD LCD capacitive touchscreen, 9.7″ in size. It supports a maximum resolution of 1024×768. It is also an IPS display, giving consistent colour reproduction across wide viewing angles.
Like the Zync Z999 Plus, Micromax Funbook Pro and Acer Iconia B1, internal storage in the Destiny D90T stands at a moderate 8 GBs, expandable upto 32 GBs. While adequate for many users, it may feel to be insufficient for those regularly downloading content through the Worldspace app.

Coming to benchmarks, the dual-core Cortex A9 processor in the Destiny D90T helps it to score an excellent 11852 in the Antutu benchmark, better than most sub-15000 tablets in the market. The An3DBench test, which evaluates graphics’ performance, scores an excellent 7811 and An3DBenchXL follows suit by posting a staggering score of 34403, justifying supreme graphics capabilities. The HTML5 chapter of the Vellamo Mobile test, which evaluates browsing performance, reported an excellent score of 1478, which puts it almost at the top of all recent sub-15000 tablets we have reviewed, with only the Spice Stellar Pad MI 1010 managing to post a better score.
