I bought this piece of crap 1 year ago in an airport on my way home to Norway.
It was cheap and I understood the store wanted me to buy silly things like a cover, that would cost 50% of the price of the tablet, and overpriced SD cards. Of course I didnt.
I was trying to use it during January to see what would happen and I noticed it was exceptionally slow and when I tried to play video on it, it often failed. The sole reason that I bought it was to watch movies/videos on it, and it couldnt even handle basic youtube videos.
I went into the camera just to see if that worked. It didnt. the Asus camera app refuse to this day to work, I have never once been able to take a single photograph with it. The app just decide to crash.
After this I put it in a drawer and went on with my life, cursing the shit out of this useless Asus product.
This November I bought a DJI Phantom 4 drone and since I have a Samsung S7 Edge, the DJI Go app makes my phone restart. I had the brilliant idea to take up my old Asus and see if maybe it would work with it.
I started up the tablet and let it stay connected for about 24 hours before I even tried to do anything, letting it update and run its programs and get ready to be tested.
I managed to log into the app but that is where it ended. Video is super glitchy and cannot be used in any sense.
Ok, so I wanted to reset the devide and only install the DJI Go app instead, maybe, just maybe it could work better then! I go into settings, go to the reset to factory button and OF COURSE the entire tablet freezes. It does not do anything further, except to tell me that "Settings have stopped responding". Fantastic! Not only is the included camera-app useless, the settings on the tablets is useless as well!
I try to restart the device and as it just is about to shut down it pops up with the screen where I am supposed to write in 4 numbers for a factory reset...
I try again and again, but the only chance to write the numbers in is when it is almost shut down.
I try the volume + and power button to reset, but only gets stuck on a green android screen. I then find out its volume - and power button. Great
I do that and get it installed again. Lo and behold; it is still horrible. Slow as hell, the camera app doesnt work! the settings still refuse to work and overall it is a piece of shit.
I used to love Asus, now I just hate them completely. stay away from this horrible tablet!
I just got mine (I bought the wifi variant) and it seems good to begin with, a major plus is usb otg support which is a necessity for me. A bit sluggish at first so you should adjust the settings a bit so it works even better.
I bought ZenPad C7.0 one month ago, now I have to throw away it.
I pressed 'System Update' as there is a small red @1, then the tablet keeps showing 'Android is upgrading' forever.
There is no reset button to change to factory mode.
Exellent device, using it for over a year, as my major phone, and enjoying every minute using it. All my apps responds greaat. Wi-Fi a and bluetooth works great, gps navigation is great, and also 3G calls and dafa, reat display, great p!ayback of youtube! Highly recommended!
