This is a voice calling a tablet. The device runs on Android Jelly Bean v4.2 and upgradable to KitKat v 4.4.2 and Lollipop 5.0. It consists of a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560processor ticking at 1.6Ghz, a PowerVR SGX544MP2 graphics chip, and 1GB of RAM. It has an internal storage of 8/16/32GB. The storage can be expanded to up to 34GB via the microSD card slot. The tablet packs dual cameras posting a 5MP primary camera which captures at 2592 x 1944 pixels with autofocus and records at 1080p@30fps, and a 1.2MP Front camera with 720p video feature.
It supports Geo-tagging. In connectivity terms, it includes features like Wi-Fi, USB, GPRS, GPS, 3G, Sim Support and Bluetooth. Asus FonePad 7 has a powerful battery of 3950mAh non-removable battery, which provides a talk time of 10hrs on 2G and 28hrs on 3G, 840hrs of standby time on 3G. Accelerometer, proximity and compass sensor is available.
The display feels very good and the build quality is also good. The touch is very responsive. The camera also works well. Video calling facility is good. There have been provided OS updates to the tablet which the device is not able to execute properly and have seen many problems. Kitkat version update is supportable but coming to the Lollipop version it’s absorbing quite more RAM space which makes the device a dead piece. It starts hanging and you can observe legs while playing games. Coming to the battery it is also not up to the grade. It is a very cheap device but not even worth to buy.
Of course, it has a very good display but display alone is not satisfying. The UI is stock android and is pretty normal. The call clarity is also good. No droppings are reported. Many games can be played with average graphics. Nothing is very good on this device. It is not a better option to be chosen. Multi-tasking is also quite poor. The overall performance of the device is rated average. But the device has a very good design.
Well Asus Fonepad 7 ME175CG may say to be a very affordable tablet with a very beautiful design and front facing stereo speakers but with poor performance which you may not like it. The display is good and vibrant but with the weak processor.
