Personal Take

ASUS ZenPad S8:

  • a very sophisticated and chic design.
  • It is very thin and light weight.
  • Made of aluminum and leather.
  • comes with a free tablet case that suits its sophistication.
  • black ASUS ZenPad S8 is to die for. I haven’t seen the one white yet.
  • Pixel Camera is also awesome like my ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser. (Check my photos above)
  • although some of the features can be found on my ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser and ZenFone Selfie. I think if I have some extra cash this holiday I will buy this for my mom.
  • Not too expensive compared to other tablets.
  • battery life can be extended with the use of ultra saving mode of the tablet.
  • for girls and women who likes to use the mirror there is this app in the tablet which is called “Mirror”.
  • charger is different from the mobile phone charger. Will ask my Tech Blogger friends if what’s ASUS ZenPad S8 charger called.

The Verdict

Overall, ASUS ZenPad S8 is a very sophisticated, light weight and light on the pocket tablet that is recommended  for huge gamers and Youtube watcher (like Kweky). It is fast because it is 4 GB RAM and it does not lag or hang. It is very affordable compared to other tablets in the market with the same key features. ASUS never fails consumers when it comes to the value for money. The charging tip is called type C, which differs from the android charging tip and I think that is new for me and Kweky.

Update: December 18, 2015

I forgot to include photo comparison of the newest charger which is called type “C” and the normal android charger tip.

The one on the left is the type "C" charger.

Here's a tip view of the charger. Left side is the type "C" charger. You can charge the ZenPad S8 without checking which side of the tip you should insert unlike the regular android charger.
