I prefer tablets with a home button and O+ Fab Nova 3G has nicely done that with its + home button.

The display looks good too. It’s an improvement over the previous Fab 3G with a 7 inch IPS LCD panel and higher resolution this time.

Several shots of O+ Fab Nova 3G showing its design.

 “Designed for O+ in the USA” can be read at the bottom of the back cover of O+ Fab Nova 3G. It’s definitely a marketing tactic but it works for those who care where their things come from.

O+ Fab Nova 3G feels solid and sturdy. I didn’t feel like it will break easily if it accidentally drops. However, the logo at the back seems a little large. O+ might want to reduce that a bit.

O+ Fab 3G runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on a 1GHz dual core processor. Transitions and animations are smooth that I initially thought it’s a quad core tablet.

One thing that sets it back for me is the web browsing experience. I connected it to a mobile WiFi hotspot but it loads Pinoy Techno Guide slowly. I didn’t experience that with my girlfriend’s phone so I supposed it’s the tablet.

On the positive side of web browsing with O+ Fab Nova 3G, it has two sim slots with 3G connectivity. I haven’t tried it but hopefully, this should give you a faster mobile web browsing.

The camera of O+ Fab Nova 3G amazed me. The main camera took high quality photos like the one above. It even has an LED flash for low light photography.

A 2 MP camera is found at the front but photos and videos appear grainy.
