The perfect travel tablet

Asus ZenPad Z8

I didn’t expect to be impressed by the ZenPad Z8, but Asus clearly knows what it’s doing when it comes to making budget-friendly Android tablets. There’s a bit of the classic Nexus 7 buried somewhere in there, serving as a sturdy foundation for modern hardware and software enhancements. The real issue with this tablet is that it’s only available from Verizon, but if that’s not a problem for you, there’s nothing else to hold you back from picking one up.

I’ve always thought it’s a bit foolish to sign a two-year contract with a wireless carrier for a tablet. Sure, maybe the carrier knocks a couple hundred dollars off the purchase price, but at the end of the contract the cost of monthly service fee winds up being far more expensive than what you save.

Solid performance and a beautiful display

Asus ZenPad Z8

from Laptop Magazine ( )

From its brilliant display and strong sound to its speedy processor and lightweight design, the Asus ZenPad Z8 is one great, pint-size tablet. Unfortunately, its user experience suffers from minor dings like slight pauses while switching apps and lackluster video-shooting.

For the price, the Zenfone Zoom certainly gets the job done without any stutters and hiccups. Its performance is comparable to the Moto G (2015), the Nexus 5X, and many other leading smartphones in its tier. We just can’t recommend it because it sorely lacks any style in its user interface and design; not to mention, the camera just isn’t good enough.

The Asus ZenFone Zoom has a premium price tag of Rs 37,999 which is may not go well with a lot of people as having an optical zoom is not a necessity in the phone.

The Asus ZenFone Zoom has a premium price tag of Rs 37,999 which is may not go well with a lot of people as having an optical zoom is not a necessity in the phone. It terms of experimentation, Asus has done a decent job with ZenFone Zoom but there are miles to cover before they stop. The battery department needs a serious relook and UI needs to be freed of the clutter.

We want to reward daring design. We want to celebrate when companies take risks. The ZenFone Zoom is an incredible feat of camera design, but the crown jewel feature of this phone in many ways compromises the camera that the zoom lens is supposed to enhance. That unfortunately becomes the end of the review. When a company places so much responsibility on one feature, it’s exceedingly difficult to ignore that feature for any kind of objective comparison with other phones. It’s the ZenFone Zoom, we can’t rightfully say “but ignoring the camera…”.

Groundbreaking camera, iffy performance

Asus ZenFone Zoom

from Cnet ( )

The Asus ZenFone Zoom puts cool new camera tech to work, but its bloated software and poor overall performance keep it from being a phone you'd want to buy.

When I reflect on everything that the ZenFone Zoom offers and then recall its asking price of $399, I can’t help but think that the value is great. I could most definitely replace my daily driver flagship phone (which costs almost twice as much) and not regret it. That’s where the Zen... More

When I reflect on everything that the ZenFone Zoom offers and then recall its asking price of $399, I can’t help but think that the value is great. I could most definitely replace my daily driver flagship phone (which costs almost twice as much) and not regret it. That’s where the ZenFone line has the upper-hand, and the 3x optical zoom is icing that you won’t get on most cakes out there. As long as your expectations aren’t sky-high, the ZenFone Zoom is definitely recommendable. I just emphasize that the camera’s general performance is good but not the best you’ll find, and that ZenUI may be too heavy for Android enthusiasts (although, it functions just fine).

I purchased my zenfone 4 about 7 months back, and I have been facing performance and battery issues since the past 2-3 months. It can handle the everyday tasks well in its initial phase for a few months, and you might love its great UI and colour scheme, but later on you will face lagging in even simple web browsing , social networking, reading documents or while switching between different apps. Another main concern is the battery. After using for about 4-5 months, you will notice that even a full charge will drain out in 3-4 hours even with simple phone usage like calling or messaging. Even the battery saver mode doesn't come to the rescue. The primary camera is good for its price but the front camera gives very poor picture quality. Low light photography is next to impossible. Otherwise, looks wise the handset is good. Anyone who is looking for a budget phone for temporary usage may consider buying this.

I have had two of the Asus transformer books. the first one broke after falling off of my bed, three feet up. I used the warranty and got a new one. three months later I dropped it from two feet. the screen shattered. would not recommend.

I've had this for just over a year and I could not be more unhappy with it. At first I thought it was user error, but after much patience, I've decided that its not me, its the computer. It has a mind of its own. The volume control on the side stays on and either goes to 0% or 100% and nothing in between. I will be typing in a document and it will randomly change to a different line, or worse, change to a different app. The battery life is not as advertised. The keyboard is wearing out. I've talked with customer service multiple times and nothing has been fixed.

I used the tablet almost one year and before warranty expires and without any physical or water damage the screen began having a vertical line. Sent for warranty and they denied it arguing customer damage despite the tablet was intact, no scratches, never dropped and used always with a hard case. Besides to denying a deserved warranty they were trying to steal trying to charge $185 for repair while the new model can be bought for $230 and the same model for $160. DONT TRUST GOOGLE ASUS WARRANTY and go with a more trusted brand.

I have a Galaxy Tab 2.7, an iPad mini and a nexus 7 (all to be given later as presents to friends). I bought the memopad HD 7 because the reviews fascinated me and I wanted to see how good it is. Well, its now my go to tablet for day to day so I obviously really like it. I don't understand what some reviewers elsewhere have said about creaky body, mine doesn't creak at all. Its beryllium solid. Same with complaints about the protruding back lip, I find the memopad far more comfortable than the nexus 7 and lighter. I find no difference in speed at all with the above 7" tablets. Mine works like a breeze. Battery life is important to me and only the iPad mini beats it. I'm not into bright colours so the dark blue back is fine for me and I think its a very fine design. Perhaps people have thought it looks tacky if they have one of the bright colours which I would agree look tacky but the dark blue is quite acceptable. So, no complaints at all. Memory expansion is a real bonus and it reads three memory card very quickly and it sits very stably in the little hole. The speakers are a vast improvement on the nexus 7 speakers which are frankly rubbish. Overall I would say this is a great little tablet regardless of price but given that it can be picked up for as little as £129 in Currys its an absolute steal and a gem. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

because I couldn't call out or answer a call without it ending the call on its own. Took it back to the store since I couldn't call or receive calls on it and they replaced it with a new one. I was thrilled that I could call out and receive, except I was shocked to find that now, I had no maps. Whenever I tried to use any of the Garmin features, I had no maps and I couldn't even add my own home address because it kept telling me that there was no data for that location (I live in a city and not some rural unknown place). I was so frustrated spending hours with tech support and with Garmin support to end up with nothing. Should I also mention that it created a second contact for every contact I had that had a second number (example one with the home number and one with the mobile number). I took it back and after much arguing with the supplier, I finally got an authorization to get it exchanged for a new model of phone. STAY AWAY!
