With the Asus ZenPad Z170C 7" Tablet you'll be able to browse the web and stay entertained comfortably and easily, on the move or while relaxing at home.

Smart processing 

An Intel® Atom™ x3-C3200 Processor helps your ZenPad run smoothly so that daily computing stays fun.

Android 5.0 gives you a fantastic experience - its bold, colorful new design looks great and features layered windows for simple and intuitive menu navigation. Notifications for messages, emails and updates now appear over the top of the screen, so won't interrupt you browsing the web or watching a film unless you want them to.

If you have several Android devices, all your data and options automatically transfer between them, so you can move seamlessly between your tablet and smartphone and instantly pick up where you left off.

Other improvements include estimated battery life and charge times, plenty of new quick settings like Flashlight and screen cast, and Smart Lock which keeps the tablet unlocked while it's within a certain distance of a trusted device such as a smartwatch or PC.

A screen for easy computing 
Use your apps, navigate through web pages and display photos with ease on a 7 inch IPS LED display. You'll always be able to find what you're looking for.

This 10-point multi-touch screen offers an intuitive user interface – combined with a 1024 x 600 resolution and comfortable 178° viewing angle, the ZenPad Z170C is the ideal blend of great visuals and practicality. Asus TruVivid technology delivers a better visual experience, with brighter, more vivid colors and details.

Good storage and battery life 
The 16 GB internal memory allows you to store music, pictures and other essential items on your Asus ZenPad Z170C for easy access. The tablet's built-in battery offers up to nine hours of use from a full charge, so you can work and play for longer.

Great for photos and video chats 
Use the 2 megapixel camera on your ZenPad Z170C to take photos and videos of special moments with family and friends – or unexpected things that are happening right in front of you.

A 0.3 megapixel web camera on the screen side of the tablet allows for clear web chats – carry the tablet around the house while you talk, or just prop it easily on your lap while chilling on the sofa.

Light and portable 
Take the ZenPad anywhere without hassle. It's just 8.4 mm thick and weighs only 270 g, so it won't add much bulk to a bag or backpack.
