Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE Tablet Review

Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE Camera and CPU Performance

I took the Ellipsis 7 tablet out shopping with me, fruits and vegetables are usually great in photos because of the bright colors.Unfortunately, the camera on the Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet really didn’t impress me in the least. Many of the fruits in the pictures above were much brighter than what’s shown in the pictures. Another issue that I was encountering with the Ellipsis 7 camera was that it was slow to actually capture the image. There were an number of images that I shot, that if I moved the tablet to soon after trying to take the picture it would come out blurry.

These are a handful of the photos I took before I realized what was happening. Once you hit the button to take the picture the Ellipsis 7 Tablet would grab the screen, slide it over into the preview box and it looked like that’s what you’re getting. It wasn’t until I tried to preview the first of the pictures that I had taken did I realize that they were coming out blurry like this. Needless to say I wasn’t exactly impressed with what was happening with the pictures.

The Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE tablet has a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core processor at the heart of it, at one point in time that was a beast of a processor. Now days though, it’s a  bit of a dog in the benchmarks. The Google Nexus 7 2nd generation tablet that Nate reviewed at the end of July 2013 was able to pretty well spank the Ellipsis 7 in each of the benchmarks. The Google Nexus 7 has a 1.5GHz quad-core Krait processor while the Ellipsis 7 is a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A7 quad-core processor that just couldn’t keep up with the Nexus 7. A number of the benchmarks were considerably different between the Ellipsis 7 and Nexus 7. In Antutu the Ellipsis 7 scored 13291 while the Nexus 7 was 58% faster with a score of 21034. When running FutureMark IceStorm the Verizon Ellipsis 7 scored 3184, the Nexus 7 maxed out the basic score and hit 7730 in the Extreme version of the benchmark!

    I erased the keyboard by mistake. How do I reinstall it

  • Ashley

    Can anyone tell me how to save apps to my sd card on this tablet? I keep having problems with memory. I have a 16gb sd card in but there isn’t anything on it. I am just frustrated with the insufficient space popping up on me! I went in to the store I got it from two people couldn’t figure it out. Please help.

      I don’t think this device has this capability of saving anything but pix to the ext SD card

  • TampaMeg

    where is the damn Tab key on this ellipsis 7??!!!

  • Sharon

    Just got the tablet from Verizon last week. Email does not load and files say they are loading and never do. Also batter doesn’t last very long and after charging all night it is still not 100%

  • Darryl Hines

    Can a stylus work with this device?

  • peggy

    didn’t mean to give scooby a “thumbs down”
    sorry sorry
    how did you make ellipsis 7 stay “on” longer?

  • Amber Finken-Johnson

    Can anyone tell me if I can use an external keyboard with this tablet? I see that Verizon is now selling a Bluetooth external keyboard for it but I was looking at one that plugs into the micro USB and don’t want to get it if it won’t work with my tablet.

      I bought a
      Tsmile® New Detachable Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard PU Leather Case Cover Stand Protective Skin for Verizon Ellipsis 7 MV7A Black
      for mine. It is wireless, so you have to charge the keyboard just like the tablet. What I like about it is the keyboard is part of the case to protect the tablet.

      Amber, I came here looking for the same answer. I can tell you that the (cheap) usb keyboard I bought does not work . . .

  • scooby

    Ours works great love the 4g feature but tablet keeps shutting down and restarting if you are not using it hasn’t done it for a while though I think I might of fixed the ptoblem

    Nice review for what seems to be a little below the line tablet. I would love to stay connected on the go but with the cost of data plans being ridiculously high, it just isn’t an option.

    If someone ever does a truly unlimited 4g (or above by that time) connection just like you get with your cable, dsl, fios, etc, they will take away business from everyone as long as they can sustain the hit in bandwidth.

    Wireless is just to darn expensive and limited to do more than small things on.
