Quick Review of Asus Zenpad 3S 10 Z500M

There are not many tablets are selling in the market. So, there are only 2 or 3 close competing tablets available. First of all, the display with 9.7 inches is very big and very rare to see in the market. The resolution given is good to see in Tablet device with big size screen. The Oleophobic coating is really good valuable addition. When the 9.7 inches screen imprinted with oily touch, it will spoil the user experience. The oleophopic coating prevents that.

The MediaTek MT8176 Hexa-core processor is not a regular chipset. This chip is a mid-level performer and suits for Tablet devices. The 4 GB RAM adds more value and gives an assurance that it will handle multitasking at comfortable level. We cannot expect good cameras in Tablets. But this Tablet has 8MP and 5MP cameras. That is good enough to use for basic purposes. The 5900mAh Battery has to use more energy to power this tablet than the smartphones. This battery powers the device for around 10 hours on continuous use of multimedia.

Overall, this is a good mid-level Tablet.

Pros and Cons of Asus Zenpad 3S 10 Z500M

    Asus Zenpad 3S 10 Z500M is released in USA and can be purchased 47st. Photo $299.99 which is only one of a few mid performance native android marshmallow tablets on the market currently; its price to performance ratio is ok; so while the price is rather high the peformance is also above average also as well.
