ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 REVIEW | 8-inch Android Tablet


The ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 Android tablet has a stunning 8-inch display, quad-core processor, sleek design and even USB Type-C. It’s not perfect but considering it’s half the price of an iPad Mini 4 – it’s pretty good value for money.

    Unless you are going to eat something you shouldn't complain that it's made of plastic. Who cares if a television, a phone, a tablet, or a piece of electric is plastic ESPECIALLY if you don't know what the expensive products are made of? Snobs.

    Just seen a second hand one for £20 on eBay, is that worth it for 2018? What's with Android and tablets, you'll never find an Oreo tab, might not even find a 7 version, most are from 4 to 6 if your lucky.
    They've totally ignored the tablet market while Apple takes charge with excessive prices imo.

    nice video, thinking of getting an ASUS, local stores have them from $125. I have a $20 Naxa 7" I just use for magazine reading (hence why I want the ASUS), but the Naxa is just for my Torque app in the truck.

    I keep hearing about bloatware but it doesn't seem to have any more unnecessary extras than you would find on a android phone from what I can see. After weighing in on my needs still trying to decide between this and Amazon's HD 8 but really have no need for all of Amazon's extras as I remember when I had prime I could get all their stuff on my phone. The only other thing I'm concerned about is sound quality & picture vs the Amazon . the Asus look better made even if the battery life isn't as long. I already have a laptop from (10 hrs to Asus😍) them so… again leaning towards the Asus again . Not a gamer just want movies and space to music and vids.

    Incorrect – USB Type C does not mean faster data transfer. USB – C is just a connector specification not a protocol specification like USB 2, 3 and 3.1. You can have USB 2.0 over Type C like the Nexus 6P or conversely you can have USB 3.1 at 10 Gbps over the old Type A connector as well. The main benefit of Type C besides reversibility is the rapid charging as the new connector is able to support huge amounts of power – as an example 5V/3 amps on the Nexus 6P. The old Type A connector officially caps out at 2 amps, although unofficially it's gone upto 2.4 amps.

    I just got mine in the mail today, I'm really loving this tablet. Got a great deal on amazon and just was researching for days!. I have mostly apple products but really wanted something for less money and glad i found this one. The screen is beautiful and its zippy! I am not a android guy, its just not appealing to me, but loving this. Its a great buy for the money.

    I was about to buy a Galaxy Tab S2 for $160, and it literally sold out as I was checking out, so I had to end up going for this which was the next best option at $140. Hopefully this isn't a huge step down from the Tab S2 because I was looking for a replacement for my Nexus 9, which is laggy and buggy beyond use at this point.

    Question: So the only time I can surf the web is when I have wifi access? I ask b/c I was considering adding a service plan to a tablet (via Straight Talk).

    I have the non-S version (Z380KL) which is almost identical to this one in terms of design, but uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and only 1GB of RAM, plus 1200×800 screen resolution. It is pretty agile, but the low amount of RAM memory is annoying at times. In this configuration, the battery lasts impressively long – approximately 11-12 hours of continuous video playback at 50% brightness with headphones. But 1GB of RAM though is not enough, I wish it had at least 1.5GB.

    Can you do PWM tests? I'm curious if this has PWM at minimum brightness.
    Also how well it works for book reading? Can the battery survive that long? Did someone compare it to Chuwi Hi12?
