Both this phone and Zenpad C (Z171KG) 7 inch which I have are identical. Even the case for this Zenfone fits my Zenpad C.
I measured the screen and it is exactly 7 inch (not 6.9). I guess it is just marketing not to have this phone seems that gigantic.
Overall performance is just passable (1 Gig RAM) if the app is not too taxing. Snapdragon 200 Soc is pretty old. The trimmings are nice though, more like Asus wanted it to look like a proper phone than just a cheap matted tablet.
The 3490 mAh battery good for no more than 8 hours of heavy surfing. The older Zenpad 7 3980 mAh battery would probably be better.
Lando, 20 Mar 2017How long it will fully charge?Use ZenFone 5 charge (5.2v1.32a) take about 2-3 hour( in use) but the included charger (5v1a) take about 20-30 min per one percent
I have this unit and I like it as even with 1GB I can play my games online and via emulator, the simple trick is that simply uninstall application that you do not use and restrict background process, The phone comes with an auto start manager that is very handy allowing you to stop all auto start application from the moment you power up your phablet.
It does comes with FM tuner too. Picture equality is good and friendly interface.

overall good performance except for the 1gb ram. it cant play online games smoothly, but, for offline game is good. failed on clash of clan, mobile legends and other online games. the rest well assured was smooth performance. hopely 1gb can replace additional gb of ram. :)
