this device looks good but everytime Im opening the wifi its too slow to connect I need to forget then again and again until it was connected, also have an update often times ..
I bought this device (ZenPad C 7 3G) because it was cheap, and I wanted a tablet that I could put my 10 GB SIM card in. I'm fairly happy with it. Compaired to high-end devices, it has it's obvious flaws. The battery doesn't last all that long, and it has frozen a couple of times. It started freezing on lock screen after I put an extra SIM card in slot 2. I'm still waiting to see if it freezes without the second SIM card... Also, it seems that ASUS put slow memory in the device. It takes about 4 times longer to load a book in Kindle on this device than on my Note 3 (which also has Lollipop). It is slower to load web pages than a fast tablet.
But other than those issues, I am actually happy with it. It fits easily in my jacket pocket. The screen is bright and fairly sharp, the sound is good, and it doesn't lag when playing or streaming videos (or reading books). For what I paid for it, I think I got a lot of value for my money.
Useless device the only reason I kept it is that I lost the receipt, can't understand why Android let devices like this to go on the market, very slow in any action camera slow to open plus the resolution from 80s, gaming ? forget it specially games like real racing 3 or modern combat 5

Kate, 20 Oct 2015Battery gets drained easily..is the battery replaceable?Make sure to turn on the ASUS battery manager, which makes sure to optimize idle power consumption, turning off applications background activity. Battery is not replacable. Over my ZenPad device I get over 2 days of usage oncull charge.
Just bought it last night. It is annoying when I download the apps, very slow. Thought my Wi-Fi is weak. Updating the version now, hope it will be better, starting to regret sold my ASUS k012 for this. Keep updating, thanks for all tips.

Anonymous, 18 Sep 2015bought the item for just a month now, and guess what.. it won't turn on! :shold power button for 12 sec then if it was charging it will show the charging thing then take the charger out then hold the power button for a further 3 sec then it should turn on
I have this problem of the device will get into emergency call only after leaving the device idle for a while. Only way to recover is to reboot. I believe it is the same problem with another post. I just updated my firmware to 20151006, I hope it will fix the problem. Monitoring now. I am cursing myself for buying this piece of unstable junk.
AnonD-448543, 10 Oct 2015solved, first time i open this device, i skip all the wizard coz no internet and not create a... moreMake sure you update multiple times, because updtates are sequential. First update is from June to July. Then to August, twice, and then to September. By the way, there is a brand new October update 20151006.
