Surprisingly smooth performance, beautiful 2K display

from PhoneArena
The Asus ZenPad Z8 is a fun tablet, and I found myself playing games and watching videos more often than I usually do while testing it.

The perfect travel tablet

Solid performance and a beautiful display

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... Full review
