A big disappointment for gaming and updated apps purposes but for video watching 8/10
Very durable; this is one of the strongest tablets one can come across!!!
I don't use a screen protector but it has fallen on the ground several times with the screen facing the ground, yet no crack on the screen.(I'm still wondering at the type of glass Asus used in making it).
I was surprised to get an update from Asus (Android 5.0).
Decent battery life.
Surprisingly enough, it supports my 32gig memory card 😏
However, it never worked with sim cards from day 1.
(I believe this is a factory error.)
I didn't really bother because I don't use it for calls or browsing.
Something else I've noticed is that it hanged terribly the few times I connected it to the internet via hotspot.
(I used hotspot because the sim port of my device ain't working).
So for now I simply use it to edit documents, read books, view pictures, watch videos and play songs, and it's serving these purposes really effectively.
I been using this tablet since januari 2014 until now. This tablet is strong, have powerfull battery. But not in game 3d. Overall 7/10.
my asus phone pad having faulty LCD. kindly suggest for its rectification.

Anonymous , 30 Nov 2016My tab version now is lollipop (5.0) version. How I want to get back to kitkat version??? you should not do that.
Very good tablet. I finally managed to root it after 2 years of owning it and got rid of the preloaded apps and I use the external SD card for storage.
i have this tab,it's good,the problem is the bloatware..i can only install 2 games...after disabling it's unused apps. good only in media consumption.
i may root this..so what should i use?

It is a good tab and it works very smoothly I have been having this tab for more than 2 years
Honestly I don't understand all the hate. I have been using this tablet for nearly a year (bought it used for like 75$) and it runs mostly fine except for the worn-out power button (need a little more force to press it) and that sometimes it may lose touch sensitivity for a few seconds. What people don't realize is that this tablet only has 1GB of RAM, which is considered the bare minimum nowadays for an Android device (especially if you are using memory-hunger apps like Facebook), so you can't open multiple apps at the same time and demand it to run smoothly. If you want to do that, use something with 3GB of RAM, not this.
- Try to disable as many Asus apps as you can. They do nothing aside from bloating and hogging up the memory. Asus is no better than Samsung when it comes to apps.
- Don't open more than one app at a time (e.g. browsing Internet while playing a game).
- If you are using the fully featured Facebook app, uninstall it and use the lite version instead. It will save you about 500MB. Trust me, even devices with 2GB of RAM may lack memory while using it.
- If you have Clean Master installed on your tablet, uninstall it like I did. That app does more harm than good. It's bloated and full of ads. You can use better alternatives like CCleaner or SD Maid.
- Do reboot your tablet at least once every two weeks, or it will become very sluggish.
As for me I use it mainly to play Love Live, PSP/GBA games, read ebooks and occasionally browse the Internet or check Facebook/emails, and I can say it does a decent job for the price.
I use it for reading, internet, music. I have all my files on sdcard. Installed only few apps (moved to SD if possible). The device still runs out of internal memory. There is a lot of software from android and asus that I don't use.
Worst tab ever!!! Always hanging, it takes almost 5 mins for keypad to show if you want to wright something unless you pressed a lot of times so that it will show faster nor still useless!!! I'm starting to hate asus now
Very unsatisfied with this tablet. When it was new it's doing nice & elegant but 1 one year it's unbearable to work. It's giving problems from battery issues to screen & software also. Please avoid Asus.
Have it for more than a year - use it every day, excellent 7" tablet/Phone pad
