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

Asus ZenPad S 8.0 Review: An Almost-Great Tablet Held Back By Its Software

Antutu pulled down a score of 45013, just a little lower than the ZenFone 2. Understandable considering the higher resolution of the screen. The 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme benchmark managed a score of 7522, which is okay. It’s higher than you’d see in budget devices powered by the Snapdragon 615 or 410, but still not as good as the GPU in a flagship device. Note, I’m using the 4GB version of the tablet with the faster Intel chip.

Italics emphasis in original.

I expected an AnTuTu score in that range. At US$299, that’s a good score.

I’ve yet to encounter this version of the tablet in person, though, and look forward to finding a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 to compare with.

Meanwhile, after the break, some videos demonstrating the optional stylus.
