The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is a large tablet with a 9.70-inch display. It sports a beautiful design without compromising functionality. When it comes to price, the tablet is considered affordable. You only need to spend $299 on this device. Performance-wise, it is very reliable. It has also been equipped with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It’s not the newest as the honor goes to Nougat, but still recent.
You have two color choices, Silver and Titanium Gray. Both have gorgeous color combinations. On the front, the tablet looks attractive especially when the screen is off because the bezel will match its color. It creates a solid black panel. The back also exudes a premium feel thanks to the aluminum accent. It already has a built-in fingerprint scanner that can save up to 5 prints. It is pretty responsive because as you put one finger screen on the area, it will unlock the screen shortly after. There is also a memory card slot just in case you need to expand the storage. It is located on the left side. Meanwhile, the headphone jack sits comfortably on the top. As for the lock button and volume rocker, they are on the right side.
The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 has an amazing display. Text looks readable and clear thanks to the 1536 x 2048 resolution. It makes a perfect sense since the screen is 9.7 inches diagonally. If it was lower, the display would look strikingly dull and low-quality. The pixel density may not be the highest, but it is quite reasonable for a tablet. You will find better specs in an Asus phone at this price point. The LCD IPS panel produces vibrant colors, so it is good for photography. Gaming experience is also great because the viewing angles are wide. You can tilt it left and right without noticing a loss in details.

Many of us don’t expect a high-quality camera from a tablet. Only some that can really deliver in this department. Well, at least the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 camera is rich in features. There is a wide range of modes that you can use to beautify the shots, like Panorama, Auto, and HDR Modes. As far as image quality is concerned, it is pretty subpar, but still good considering the price. You can still use it to take photos for social media.
This tablet is powered by an Octa-Core Mediatek processor, paired with 4GB of RAM. It handles various tasks decently. Besides, the internal storage is also spacious. For starters, you can get the 32GB model. If you need more, go for the 64GB model. We believe it can meet most of your needs. It feels smooth for browsing and gaming. The RAM capacity makes sure everything runs smoothly. It lags behind the performance of an iPad, but still can put up a good fight against its competitors.
Another way to test the performance is by watching videos. There’s no noticeable issue during the playback. The quality itself is impressive. A tablet this big needs to be supported by a large battery. Thankfully, Asus really understands by adding a 5,900mAh battery. It equates to around 10 of screen on time, but it may last shorter or longer depending on how you use the tablet.
