Work Performance – PCMark

We tested the ASUS ZenPad 7.0‘s performance using PCMark, which simulates work applications like web browing, playing video, writing text and editing photos.

Web Browsing 1863 6108 6788
Video Playback 3443 3970 3091
Writing 2306 5039 5918
Photo Editing 2396 8301 5357

As the results show, the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 tablet is no Speedy Gonzales. It was much slower than the ASUS ZenFone 2, which uses the much more powerful Intel Atom Z3580 processor and faster flash memory.

The ZenPad 7.0 did very well in video playback though. In fact, it actually beat the Samsung Galaxy S6 in the video playback test!


Battery Performance – PCMark

We then tested the ASUS ZenPad 7.0‘s battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until the ZenPad 7.0’s battery dropped to 20%.

In normal usage, ASUS quotes a battery life of 8 hours, based on looping a 720p video with the brightness set to 100 nits and Gmail logged in for emails and updates.

As you can see, the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 tablet lasts only about 4.5 hours on the PCMark stress test. Of course, this is a stress test that simulates the worst possible workload. In our real world experience, we had no problem using it for 6 hours at a time, although non-stop gaming dropped that to about 3.5 hours.
