Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE Tablet Network Performance & Battery Life

Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE 21.67Mbps 11.92Mbps 59.39Mbps 4.83Mbps 17.83Mbps 4.42Mbps

The Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE tablet running on the Verizon network was able to hit the fastest 4G LTE speed that I have seen. The maximum download speed that I saw on was 59.39Mbps! The slowest download speed seen was 4.83Mbps which is still a reasonable speed to surf the web with. The average of the 20 runs sitting pretty at 21.67MbpsThe upload speed wasn’t quite as impressive as the download speed, but was still plenty fast with a maximum speed of 17.83Mb/s and a minimum speed of 4.42

When you’re on the go, battery life is always important. The GFXBench 3.0 suite has a built in battery test within it. Running the GFXBench 3.0 Battery test on the Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE tablet we got a score of 269 points and the benchmark was running at 4.8 frames per second and is estimated to last 475 minutes. The Haier Digital2 D2-961G scored 497 points at 8.9 frames per second and is estimated to last 223 minutes. I wanted to get a real sense of the battery life on the Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet so I ripped a bluray and converted it to a universal format in Handbrake and looped it continually until the tablet was dead. Iron Man 3 was run from 100% to 0% in 379 minutes (6hours 19 minutes).

    I bought all three of my children this tablet for Christmas. One of them won’t stay on. It powers itself off and on and cant do anything with it. This is the worst tablet I have ever owned.

  • lw

    How can I turn keyboard input on? I can only voice search.

  • Jessica

    This is one of the worst devices I have owned. We got it on a promo when we started up with Verizon. A bout a month & a half later the screen completely stopped working, it stays completely white, or grey. If we leave it be for a few days and keep it on the charger occasionally the screen will return to its normal state but if you so much as think about unplugging it from the charger, your screen is gone again. I had it working for about a week and now it won’t work at all screen wise. We have never dropped it, over heated it, spilled on it- nothing. Just quit for no reason. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

  • Jack

    Elipsis 7 is the worst device I have ever used to tether to internet with my PC. It does not stay online. You have to reboot continually even with an expensive cell booster. Since it is the only tablet offered by Verizon, it is a horrible deal. The only good thing is that, Verizon has told us, we can get out of our contract when we find a better actually reliable service. I have nothing good to say about this table.

  • Amorris

    My brother and I purchased Ellipsis &’s about 3 months ago. They will not charge! We have to keep the charger plugged in to use them.

    • Spencer Johnson

  • sj

  • 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.

    • jd

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

      • mtenenbaum

        The only way you can manage the memory map is to load apps that allow you to store data and executable code in the auxiliary SD card. Well that’not exactly true. If you know your way around Linux you can enter soft links to have the OS look at another location for data and executables.

  • 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%

    • user

      If you don’t close out your apps after you are done with them it can cause your battery to die fast or not charge properly. Press the two boxes at the bottom right of the screen and swipe all of the apps.

  • 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.

    • Julie

      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.

    • Sally Wilkins

      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

  • Mike – KnightRid

    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.
