Asus has released an impressive mid-range tablet that feels far more expensive than it actually is. The ZenPad 3S 10 features an eye-catching aluminum design.

Despite its budget-friendly price tag, this tablet looks and feels premium.

At just 6.8mm thick and weighing 490g, the ZenPad 3S 10 is easy to grip and hold in one hand. 

Its metal chassis gives it a sturdy yet sleek look. The 9.7-inch display pops with vibrant colors and sharp 2K resolution, great for watching movies or browsing photos. 

Four speakers powered by Asus SonicMaster deliver loud, immersive audio.

Making the experience lightning-fast is a Snapdragon 650 hexa-core processor with 4GB of RAM. The tablet zips through apps and web pages with ease. 

Gaming performance is smooth, while the microSD slot allows you to expand the storage up to 128GB

Asus crammed a large 7800mAh battery into the ZenPad 3S 10’s slim frame, providing over 10 hours of usage per charge.

On the back sits an 8MP camera capable of 1080p video recording. While image quality isn’t the best, it works fine for occasional shots. 

There’s also a 5MP front camera for video calls and selfies. Other features include a fast fingerprint scanner, USB-C charging, and four pre-installed productivity apps.

The ZenPad 3S 10 runs a slightly dated Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Out of the box, Asus loads lots of bloatware you’ll likely want to remove. 

Some users have also reported stability issues and lag in demanding apps.

Asus succeeds in delivering exceptional entertainment abilities and solid performance in a gorgeously designed package. 

For media consumption, mobile gaming, web tasks or even light work, the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is easy to recommend. 

It outshines competitors with its premium yet affordable tablet experience.
