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!
