ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) Tablet Review

Page 3 : Using The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) Tablet


The first thing you will notice when you turn on the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 is how vibrant the screen is, thanks to the ASUS Tru2Life Technology. Tru2Life dynamically applies a HDR effect to images displayed on the screen, giving them more “pop”.

The ZenPad 7.0 has a relatively high-resolution 800 x 1280 IPS display. That’s a million pixels packed into a 7″ screen. Thanks to the higher pixel density of 216 ppi, everything displayed looks really sharp and crisp at the normal viewing distance.


Available Storage & Memory

Out of the box, it runs on Android 5.0.2 and has 10.75 GB of free space, out of its internal 16 GB flash storage. As you can tell – that’s not a lot of storage space. Unless you are a light user, you are going to need to add additional storage via a micro SD card.

The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 tablet comes with 2 GB of LPDDR3 memory, which is decent considering its price point. What’s just as important is the ZenPad 7.0 has relatively little bloat, leaving you with 1.2 GB of free memory to play with.

The Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system itself takes up 262 MB of RAM, with the ZenUI interface and ASUS apps taking up 221 MB of RAM. Another 220 MB of RAM is used to cache apps, leaving you with 1.2 GB of free memory. This is plenty enough for several apps to run at the same time.


Camera Capabilities & Options

The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 tablet has an 8 MP PixelMaster camera at the back, and a 2 MP wide-angle camera in the front. Both cameras use a 4:3 ratio, with small crop sizes available in the settings menu. Neither cameras have an LED light to brighten up dark scenes. Even more disappointing was the rear camera’s video recording capability. Even though it sports an 8 MP sensor, it was only capable of recording 720p videos.

The camera comes with a bunch of built-in software features like a HDR mode and a low light option that extends the camera’s ability to capture poorly-lit scenes by combining light from multiple pixels. You can also apply some filters or convert your pictures into GIF animation.
