About This Brand
The Verizon Ellipsis is a single model in Verizon's line. The 7-inch model is Android based with 4G access.
I just used this for simple web browsing, emailing and messaging. I installed only a handful of apps. The longer I had it the more annoying it became. Apps would fail to open. The email program wouldn't reply to emails after the chain got two messages long. The touch screen would frequently fail to respond. Honestly, I nearly flung this thing across the room several times in frustration. Finally, I had enough and stopped using it as it was far too frustrating. It was free from Verizon, and still not worth it. I almost forgot, but it would not always reconnect to my home wifi. It would switch to 4g and start using data without my realizing it.
How long have you owned it:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Got it during promotion at Verizon store. I had a problem at first with SIM card coming unseated. After removing and reseating a couple of times problem went away. Added 16gig memory card. It's a keeper.

Needs strong 4G network
great size easy to carry
4g Only Not 3g Service
Returned the tablet because we don't have a consistent 4G service in our area.<br />But it was a great little tablet when I could get 4G service.<br />I would recommend only if you have a strong 4G network.
