Asus ZenPad S 8.0 (“Plus/Pro” Model) Gets Second Review

Asus ZenPad S 8.0 Review

There’s a lot to like with this tablet. It’s fast, looks nice, sounds amazing, and USB-C is clearly the way of the future. The software mess that is ZenUI is unfortunate, and the weirdly aggressive thermal regulation is a problem. While neither is a deal breaker on their own, combined it’s clear this is not a tablet for power users or heavy gamers.

One of the most important features to this particular tablet is the price tag. At $299 for the 64GB model, it’s hard to look at the majority of current generation of Android tablets — especially Google’s Nexus 9 — and see the value. Are rapid software updates and a clean UI worth the extra $180 for a tablet that has half the storage and no SD card slot? It’s hard to say yes.

A brief video is after the break.

Without any benchmarks and just three(!) sample photos, it’s really not much of a review.
