Overall: Lets move to the most important pointers...Pros and Cons...
1. At this price look at the stuffs you are getting. Dual SIM, android,1 GB RAM, voice calling 5/2 MP cameras. HD video recording. Quite a loaded product.
2. Processor although Intel ATOM is good enough and I did not face any performance related problem with any app or games. I am an addict of android games. None of the game got stuck or something.
3. Android 4.3 and guess what it is up-gradable to kitkat 4.4.2. Mine got updated within a week of buying.
4. Voice calling is a nice addition along with dual SIM. You can use SIM for data connection.
5. Display is within a range of good to very good. Although clearly not best as apple or nexus in that matter.
6. A decent battery life which will run at least 8-9 hours with high usage. The stand by time is a healthy one as well.
7. OTG support is a life saver for people like me who has lots of external hard drives and need to use them in good effect.
8. Build is good and classy.
9. At least in my case the service was prompt and packaging was good.
10. I had so many questions to ASUS customer care and got answers within few hours.
Now the Cons
1. The disappointment is speaker by far. The sound is timid and not that clear unless you use a headphone. Again that is not included with the set either.
2. There is no screen guard supplied and you will surely find it difficult to find one. It is also needed since the screen smudges a lot.
3. The battery life is good but it does take time to get charge and the best option for fast charging is to charge it while switching off.
4. The camera quality for back one is good indeed. But front is so so. Can capture selfie only in light and since there is no flash that could be a problem.
But folks, none of the stuff in the world is flawless. Trust me not even apple ipads. But with this price range this could be a great option. At least for me it is :) :)
