  • Display 7 / 10
  • Battery 8 / 10
  • Design 5 / 10

Asus has released a new 7.9-inch tablet, the Zenpad Z8, that aims to deliver strong specs and features. 

This tablet squares up nicely versus competitors with its vibrant high-res display, smooth performance, and long battery life.

Sharp Display and Solid Speed

The Zenpad Z8's screen stands out with a crisp 1536×2048 resolution on its 7.9″ IPS panel. Images and video pop with vibrant color, making the tablet great for Netflix binging. 

Processing power comes from a capable Snapdragon 650 hexa-core chip coupled with 2-4GB RAM. 

Performance exceeds expectations for the price, easily juggling tasks like web surfing, gaming, and switching between apps.

Strong Battery Life and Speakers

A sizable 4680mAh battery pack allows the Z8 tablet to endure over 10 hours per charge. 

This marathon lifespan can cover users through lengthy plane trips or a weekend of casual use. 

Twin front-facing speakers pump out loud, immersive sound for your shows and music. Volume can fill a room.

Verizon LTE Connects on the Go

Uncommon for its price bracket, the Zenpad Z8 connects to speedy LTE data networks via Verizon Wireless. 

Owners can access the internet while traveling without relying on finicky public WiFi. 

Asus constructed the tablet with smooth rounded corners and a grippy texture on back to improve handling.

Affordable Price, But Flaws Exist

On the downside, the all-plastic build exhibits creaking when squeezed and lacks a premium feel. 

Mediocre camera sensors shoot muddy, soft photos unsuitable for poster prints. 

Speakers also could use better bass response to round out audio. Still, these drawbacks fade next to the functionality buyers receive.

Strong Value Tablet Pick

Overall, the Asus Zenpad Z8 punches above its weight class to deliver robust specs and performance at a bargain price point. 

Sharp visuals, ample battery life, and Verizon LTE connectivity check important boxes for shoppers wanting an entertainment slate on a budget. 

Asus cut the right corners to keep costs low while retaining impressive core tablet abilities.
