Reviews for the Asus ZenPad 7.0 Z370CG

60% Mainly for media consumption with the Audio cover
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The standout feature of the Asus ZenPad 7.0 is the audio functionality which it bundles with the Audio cover. Not only does the audio cover give a richer and louder sound, but the 2300mAh battery on the audio cover also gives a boost to the longevity of the tablet itself. Apart from that, the ZenPad 7.0 is like any other tablet – and an expensive one at that looking at the performance and feature sheet.

If you want a tablet for about 12K and don’t mind losing out on the ability to make calls, then there are better options like the Xiaomi Mi Pad available in the market. The Mi Pad has a larger display with a better resolution and better hardware powering it. The Asus ZenPad 7.0 has underwhelming performance when it comes to gaming but if you are on a budget looking for a voice-calling tablet, for absolute basic work, you can give it a look.

Comment

Model: The Asus ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) is offered at friendly pricing with three color choices (Black, White and Metallic), better screen and improved back camera. The tablet's look is not surprising with plastic material and a thick border surrounding the panel. Its front camera, light sensor, and earpiece are placed on the top while the micro USB port and headphones jack are on the bottom. Besides, it has a SIM card slot and a Micro SD card slot for expandable storage.

The Android 5.1 Lollipop tablet features an Intel Atom x3-C3230 quad-core chipset and 2 GB of RAM. Additionally, is uses Asus's own UI, which can automatically organize your apps into folders if you wish it to do so. This 7-inch tablet offers a crisp 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and great viewing angles for watching videos or basic routine tasks, such as replying to emails. Thanks to its new earpiece, phone calls have a decent sound quality and lesser noise. However, performance and sound quality do not cater to gaming. Overall, it is ranked as average product in the family of tablets. It is more likely a voice-calling tablet for your work station.

ARM Mali-450 MP4: OpenGL ES 2.0 GPU for ARM based SoCs with 4 fragment processors and 1 vertex processor. These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
C3230RK: Entry-level quad-core Atom CPU (at 1.1 - 1.2 GHz max) for cheap Android smartphones and tablets. Includes a 3G radio and a ARM Mali-450 MP4 GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
