Asus ZenPad 3S 10

 

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 tablet gives you lots of multimedia value for your money.

Sharp display. Lightweight build. Loud speakers.

Short battery life. Screen is reflective.

Asus is delivering solid value for the money at $299 for a 2048-by-1536, 10-inch, 64GB tablet. Yes, there are better tablets out there—but not for this price. The ZenPad 3S 10 gives you the multimedia chops you'd expect from a tablet costing $100-200...

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

 

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Asus’s custom software looks and feels very outdated ; Slow to recharge ; Unusable rear-camera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

The Best Android Tablets

 

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is the best full-featured Android tablet, though most people without an attachment to Android should consider an iPad first.

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

 

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: Android's savviest iPad contender?

 

From a hardware perspective, there's not a lot missing when you compare the ZenPad 3S 10 to the new 9.7-inch iPad. Even the price is similar,

Bright and colourful display ; Generally reliable performance ; Thin design

Software is full of un-installable apps ; Camera isn't great ; Battery life isn't great.

From a hardware perspective, there's not a lot missing when you compare the ZenPad 3S 10 to the new 9.7-inch iPad. The Asus is actually thinner, which may be preferable.

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 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 review

 

Asus has closely followed Apple's lead in name and design of the ZenPad 3S. Can it hold a candle to the iPad and other Android tablets though?

The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is one of the best-designed pieces of tablet hardware I’ve yet seen. But the software made my time with it a chore, and I actively sought to not use it. That isn’t good.
