With the sleek design, great performance and reasonable price tag, the Asus tablets have always been appealing to all the tech enthusiasts. In this article, you will find two Asus tablets reviews simultaneously, which cover two of the hottest large screened Android tablets of the Taiwanese company. Let’s take a look at them.

Asus Tablets Reviews - ZenPad Z8

Asus Tablets Reviews: ZenPad Z8

Design

The ZenPad Z8 comes with a very smart design. The textile patterned rear back provides the device with an elegant look. Its soft-touch finish has made it very comfortable to hold. Having a thickness of only 0.3-inch, it has become very thin and stylish. As a result, it gets a positive feedback from us on our Asus tablets reviews.

Display

The 7.9-inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution display is absolutely stunning. Watching the HD videos, you will be completely blown away by the incredible details and color that it provides. Moreover, it is incredibly bright. So, it is definitely one of the best smartphone displays in its class.

Camera

The 8-MP camera can capture great photos on outdoors. The details and colors of the captured images are simply amazing. However, its video recording performance is not good. We find the playback a bit choppy, which is really disappointing.

Hardware and Performance

The ZenPad Z8 is able to operate very speedily. Thanks to the inclusion of the Snapdragon 650 processor and 2 GB RAM. In the Geekbench 3 test, it scores 3,355 points, which is higher than the 3,112 points of the Acer Predator 8. Its gaming performance is also really great. In the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited test, it scores 17,846 points, which is very impressive.

Battery

The 4680 mAh battery is very powerful. Despite being used moderately, it can last more than a day comfortably. In a battery life test that involves continuously surfacing on the web through Wi-Fi, it lasted 9 hours and 17 minutes. In the same test, the Acer Predator 8 lasted only 5 hours and 36 minutes.

The Verdict

The Asus ZenPad Z8 has a video recording issue. Otherwise, it is a fantastic device to have. Its display, performance and battery are outstanding. More importantly, it is available at only $169.99. If you want to have a tablet at a very reasonable price, it’s definitely the best option for you.

Asus Tablets Reviews - ZenPad 10

Asus Tablets Reviews: ZenPad 10

Design

There is nothing special in the design. The purely plastic affair has made it look very cheap. Same thing goes to its keyboard. But on the bright side, the device is extremely durable. According to Asus tablets reviews, it can survive sudden accidents, like being bashed on the table accidentally.

Display

The 10.1-inch, 1280×800 pixels resolution display is pretty decent. The color balance and vibrancy is really impressive. It’s really great for watching movies and dealing with the office works. However, at certain angles, the whites are rapidly distorted.

Camera

The 2-MP primary camera and 0.3-MP secondary camera are quite disappointing. Both of them are unable to capture decent photos even in the environment where there is plenty of light.

Hardware and Performance

The Asus ZenPad comes with 2GB RAM and the Intel Atom x3-C3200 processor, which focuses on power, rather than the fast pace. As a result, it scores only 20,342 points in the AnTuTu benchmark test, which is definitely unremarkable. However, in reality, the performance is pretty decent with respect to the normal usage that includes word processing, surfing online and watching videos. But its gaming performance is not good at all. Games like Riptide GP2 occasionally lag.

Battery

We do not have any complain with the performance of the battery. Despite being used heavily, it is able to last more than two days. As a result, it gets a great feedback in our Asus tablets reviews.

The Verdict

Being tagged with $247.02, the ZenPad 10 has become one of the cheapest 10-inch Android tablets that come with a keyboard. So, if you have a tight budget and looking to buy a large tablet for dealing with the office works, it’s a good choice for you. However, if you emphasize on gaming, it’s not the right option for you.
