Asus ZenPad 3s 10 (Z500M-1H006A) Tablet Review

 

Pleasant sounding elite of tablets . Asus' ZenPad 3s wants to be a serious competitor for Apple and aims to attract iPad owners. Thanks to a high-quality casing and hi-res sound, this might even function - were it not for some strange happenings during...

stylish metal casing, good configuration, accurate controls, fingerprint scanner, good screen, low temperature development, useful battery life, sharp photos, very loud speakers

cameras' low dynamics, poor video quality, slow GPS module, 12-month warranty only, very loud system noises, trebles sometimes dominate unpleasantly, fluctuating system performance

Stable, high-quality, good screen, decent speakers, useful battery life - Asus' ZenPad 3s 10 does not present any major shortcomings in our test course. However, we are not quite sure whether or not the review sample impressed us. The speaker sound...

Asus ZenPad 3S 10 review

 

The iPad Air 2 is one of the best tablets you can buy. And it's a better tablet than the Asus ZenPad 3S 10. But if the iPad Air 2's $399 (£379 or AU$719) starting price is too rich for your blood and you're a fan of the Android OS, you might want to...

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 has a sharp, clear HD screen and its design is both comfy and cool. The fingerprint scanner adds extra security. Comes with a good amount of storage for its price.

The speakers are easy to block when holding in landscape orientation. Games take their time to load.

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is a fantastic portable video watcher with enough storage to get you through long flights at a reasonable price.

Asus ZenPad 3S 10 Review

 

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is a 9.7-inch tablet made for Android users who don't want to compromise on performance or design. The $299 slate's aluminum shell and metallic, beveled edges may look straight out of Cupertino, but it runs a lightly skinned...

Asus ZenPad 3S 10 Review

 

With tablets, there are usually two main use cases that their makers shoot for – productivity and entertainment. In order for a tablet to be a respectable tool for getting work done, it needs to have solid horsepower, intuitive software features, and...

Premium design ; Lighter and thinner than the 9.7-inch iPad Pro ; Fingerprint scanner that’s as fast as Touch ID ; Gorgeous 2K display ; Long battery life ; Expandable storage (up to 128GB)

Asus’s custom software looks and feels very outdated ; Slow to recharge ; Unusable rear-camera

Asus is touting a rather large game with the ZenPad 3S 10. As I mentioned in the intro for this review, the company’s goal is to offer a solid tablet experience for both professional and personal use at an affordable price. That’s not an easy feat to...

Asus ZenPad 3S 10 Review and Ratings

 

The ZenPad 3S 10 is a trim, iPad-size Android tablet that capably handles media-play and productivity tasks alike at a value price. Battery life is our main quibble.

Reversible-plug USB Type-C charging ; Gorgeous, sharp display ; Very light, and thinner than iPad Air

Merely so-so battery life ; Distractingly reflective display

While the battery performance of the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 was a moderate bummer, it's partly offset by the fact that the tablet supports QuickCharge 3.0, which can help rapidly recharge a tablet. Pair that with a QuickCharge-enabled battery pack, and the...

Asus ZenPad 3S 10 review

 

Android's iPad Air 2 killer?

Brilliant 2K display ; Hi-Res audio support ; Fast chipset

Mediocre battery life ; Build quality has issues ; Speakers poorly positioned

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 has an iPad-like design, but not quite the quality. However it offers the flexibility of Android, the QHD screen is wonderful and strong audio, a decent amount of power and expandable storage sweeten the deal further. It’s just a...

Asus ZenPad 3S 10: Hello iPad lookalike

 

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is a 9.7-inch tablet that could easily be mistaken for an iPad, certainly on first glance. The device, which was on display at the company's event in Berlin in the run up to IFA, offers a lightweight design, with a premium,...

Asus ZenPad 3S 10

 

Tablets are starting to split into multiple categories. Those like the iPad Pro, Microsoft Surface and Google Pixel C that offer a laptop-like experience and those that are, well, cheap.

Asus ZenPad 3s 10 Review: In Depth

 

We review the Asus ZenPad 3s 10 (Z500M), a 9.7-inch Android tablet packing some premium specs and more than a little iPad-style design.

Gorgeous screen ; Feature-packed ; Respectable performance

Lots of crapware ; Terrible rear camera

The Asus ZenPad 3s 10 is a solid enough Android tablet, which at £300 is cheaper than the full-sized iPads. Media fans will enjoy the excellent 9.7-inch 2K display and Hi-Res audio support and there's some useful features for families too, while...

The First Tablet to run Android Marshmallow

 

My wife had an iPad 2 but after waiting for so long for Apple to upgrade the iPad lineup, I looked for something that would work more seamlessly with the Google apps that she uses every day on her phone. This is the first tablet (that I have seen)...

Good looking screen, plenty of storage, light-weight, long battery life, loud speakers, low price!

Lots of Asus apps I don't need
