Why does everyone seem to hate Verizon's Ellipsis 7?

    It's not the best tablet, but I've seen no reason to actually hate it in the time I've owned it.
    Everything works, I get full speed emulation, no stalling between apps. I've yet to run any real benchmarks on it, because I haven't really had to. I've not been trying to figure out how to optimize it or make it more efficient so that it can handle its work load; it just does.

    So, what's the problem with it?

    1. It copies the Nexus 7 blatantly--why not offer the Nexus 7?

    2. It has no 3G, EDGE or 1x fallback. if you're unlucky enough to live in a no-LTE area, the data capabilities are useless.

    3. horrible 3.2MP Camera.

    4. stuck forever in 4.1 Jelly Bean with no hope of a KitKat or Lollipop update any time soon.

    5. full of Verizon bloatware--no messaging or phone calling capabilities.

    It performs well enough in daily use, but is only usable 20 miles away from me where the closest 4G area it can pick up is. it dumps you to no service if there are 2 or less bars. it prefers perfect signal.

    It seems to have similar specs and screen resolutions to the 2012 Nexus 7. it's free for anyone with a MORE Everything Plan, but i'd rather have the iPad Mini that at least can pick up 3G signal.
