ASUS has launched a lot of entry-level Android-based tablets in India in the past couple of years, including the ZenPad 7.0 and the ZenPad 8.0 during the ZenFestival event. Now, the Taiwanese computer peripheral and smartphone brand has launched an affordable dual-SIM Android-based tablet in India. The ASUS ZenPad C 7.0, which has a price tag of Rs 7,999 and Rs 8,999 (depending on the variant), runs Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, and comes with dual-SIM 3G connectivity.

Two different variants of this tablet – Asus ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170CG) and Asus ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170MG) – are available on Flipkart and Snapdeal respectively. The variant that’s available on Flipkart (priced at Rs. 8,999) has an Intel Atom x3 processor, while the one that’s available through Snapdeal (priced at Rs. 7,999) has a MediaTek processor. The ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170CG) comes in Aurora Metallic, Glamour Red, and Obsidian Black colours, while the ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170MG) is available in Obsidian Black and Pearl White colours.

  • Android 5.0 (Lollipop) with ASUS Zen UI
  • 7-inch IPS LCD display, 1024×600 pixels, AGC DragonTrail Glass protection, and front-facing loudspeaker with DTS HD sound
  • 5-megapixel primary camera and VGA secondary (front-facing) camera

  • 1GB LP-DDR3 RAM, 8GB internal storage, and microSD card slot
  • Dual-SIM, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS, microUSB v2.0 port, and 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 3,450 mAh battery; 189 x 108 x 8.4 mm; 265g

This tablet features a 7.0-inch display with a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels, and is covered using DragonTrail protective glass. It features a front-facing loudspeaker with DTS HD sound profile. There’s a 5-megapixel camera on the rear and a VGA camera on the front of the device. There’s 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage space, a microSD card slot, and a 3,450 mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, it comes with a dual-SIM card slot, and can connect to 3G cellular networks. It would have been great if ASUS equipped this tablet with 4G LTE connectivity.

  • 7-inch IPS LCD display, 1024×600 pixels, AGC DragonTrail Glass protection, and Front Speaker with DTS HD Sound
  • 5-megapixel primary camera and VGA secondary (front-facing) camera

  • 1GB LP-DDR3 RAM, 8GB internal storage, and microSD card slot

  • 3,450 mAh battery; 189 x 108 x 8.4 mm; 265g

Going by the specifications, the variant of the ZenPad C 7.0, which comes with an Intel SoC, has a beefier ARM Mali-450MP4 GPU. Even though it is priced Rs 1,000 higher, I would advise people interested in this product to buy the variant that’s available through Flipkart as it will provide a better gaming experience due to its GPU. Since Xiaomi’s Mi Pad lacks any kind of cellular connectivity, consumers would be interested in this tablet’s dual-SIM connectivity. What do you think about this tablet?

There is not even a single tablet in this world that has user replaceable battery. Better to go for phablets.

Specs are good but price is high for a 3G tablet when 4G Tablets are priced @ Rs 7k. What type of SIM [Full Size, Micro, or Nano] it supports is not clear ? Whether the Tablet is capable of running USSD codes to check SIM Data Balance also is a ???????. But Asahi Dragon Trail Glass is very good on a tablet which no 4G Tablet has till now. Also battery could have been higher @ 4000mAh.
