We have got the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 recently from ASUS Malaysia and decided to get the tinkering started by Unboxing the phablet before we get to the in-depth review which will be coming soon. We all love to un-box something new especially before it gets into the retail shops and be one of the first to actually own one. No exceptions here when we got the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 as its one of the best ever phablet invented yet till date.
We don’t want to do the talking to much right now as we would want to get it covered in the review itself. So have fun looking at our Unboxing images as we take it one step closer to tempt and encourage you to get one for yourself during the official launch happening on anytime next week during consumer roadshow which will take place from 26-30 August at Mid Valley Megamall. Pricing is not confirmed yet, however i would take a gamble and guess the pricing to be set at RM599.
This is how the packaging looks like. There was no seal as this was an early bird unit given exclusively to Media teams. You should except a Dynamics warranty enabled ZenPad 7.0
The back view of the package box. As usual nothing new about this.
That moment when you open the box. You will see two boxes inside. One is the phablet itself while the another is an extra ZenCase ( Aurora Metallic )
This is the one you will get bundled when you purchase a ZenPad 7.0 officially in retail stores. By default you will be getting the Aurora Metallic ZenCase. This is an Impact-resistant hardened plastic protective cover with a stylish leather-embossed motif helps protect your ASUS ZenPad 7.0 against bumps and scratches.
Two extra colors of ZenCase that we, the Media team got for free. These are the Orange and Blue color.
The actual box inside the outer packaging. Looks identical to each other.
Taadaaaa! The ZenPad 7.0 itself. It’s covered in a standard protective plastic which you have to remove before using the phablet.
The usual stuff that you get , user manual, warranty card, USB cable and wall adapter. As usual you won’t be getting an earphone as no tablets/phablets packs along with one yet. ( As far as I know )
The back view of the ZenPad 7.0 while the protective plastic still intact.
The ZenPad 7.0 comes with the standard wall adapter that is featured on rest of the Zen series ( not the Boostmaster Charger ). This is the standard one with 1.35A output.
At a glance, the front view of the ZenPad 7.0.
The rear view. We have to admit, it is pretty stunning. Looks very classy in our opinion. Feels nice to hold.
Another rear view shot. The back cover definitely fits perfectly for the ZenPad 7.0. Again, we are loving the outlook of this phablet.
Powered by Intel processor SOFIA series, this is the new one called Intel ATOM x3.
Close-up of the rear camera. The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 has a 8MP sensor with PixelMaster technology.
Our favorite one. The close-up of the back case focusing on ASUS emblem. Elegant isn’t it?
The ASUS branding is placed on the bottom part of front view. With metallic looking bezels, it does blend in perfectly with the outlook on how the ZenPad 7.0 looks like.
The ear piece which also serves as the front-facing camera. It comes with DTS-HD premium sound. Also, that top part is actually a sticker which you can remove it before actually start using it.
The close-up shot of the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Upon dismantling the back ZenCase, this is what you will see.
From the top, the pins serves as a connector to the optionally available ZenPower case (16Wh battery) and to power up the 5.1 DTS Surround Sound audio cover.
Casual view of the ZenPad 7.0 from the back.
To the fun part. The default ZenCase ( Black ) Yay!
Blue ZenCase. Hmmm….
Orange ZenCase! One of our favorite!
This is the one which comes bundled. The Aurora Metallic ZenCase. We like this one a lot too.
At a glance. All of the ZenCases’. Our ranking. The best goes to Aurora Metallic, second place goes to the Orange and last but not least the Black one is still one of the best falling at third position.
That’s about it, pretty excited about finishing up the full review of the ASUS ZenPad 7.0. Do stay tuned and please give your feedback if you think there’s room for improvement on the packaging and outlook of the ZenPad itself. I am pretty sure none of you are upset about the outlook, it is designed perfectly.
