It just got the update to 7.0 nougat. However, after the update nothing seems to run in the background - email, pushbullet, widgets. I haven't factory resetted yet since I don't feel like setting everything up again, but eventually I'll have to.

Other than that, the tablet is fast and looks great.

That's an Android Nougat thing to save battery life - google the fix.

This is a great deal. Normally it's difficult to find a used one in good condition at this price. Really wish I could afford one right now - I've been wanting to switch my sheet music to digital.

I have been wanting this tablet for some time now. I like that it charges via USBc and has a good screen ratio. I still can't find myself wanting to jump with some of the recent price drops on other tablets. The ipad (2017) is about the same price and the galaxy s3 is beginning to drop and would be worth the extra cash. I think this is a good deal but I think I can make do with what I have for the time being.

They just released android 7 nougat last month. You can fully use split mode which is a huge win.

The build quality sucks though. The screen keeps popping up from the frame for me. Its not glued down, or screwed, just simple snap..

Well, I disabled battery saving for those apps. No change.
I deleted the app caches. No change.
Then I booted into fastboot mode and deleted the cache.
Tablet only boots to red exclamation android with "no command."
What now?

You may have to do a hard reset.

It's power button and volume down to do that. Doesn't work any more, just goes to no command.

iPad for 240? I would buy that all day. I wish I could find an iPad for 240.

Got one anyway, and yeah, I had another ASUS tablet with that same problem. But at least this is aluminum build, I'll see how it truly is when :I get it.

I wonder if we are getting Quick Charge 3.0? The description says it is, but I thought QC is dependent on Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC. There's another variant of the Zenpad 3S with the SD-650, which makes sense that it would have the QC chip. Am I missing something?

edit: Found this... maybe this tablet has Pump Express? Never heard of it until now.
