Asus has recently brought their Zen series into a tablet and launched their ranges of tablet under Zen brand. We recently got the ASUS ZenTab 8.0 for review and we have been using this device for more than two weeks now.
Look and Design
You will like the look of the tab. The firm design, metallic finish makes it a premium device. I loved the performance of the device and enjoyed playing couple of games including my favourite Temple Run 2 and it worked perfectly without any lag. Apps and games run well on the tab. My son keeps watching youtube videos and other educational apps. It also has 4G sim slot. Even if you aren’t comfortable to use it as a phone for making calls, you can still use the speed of 4G

The Audio Cover fits onto the back of the tablet. Audio quality is great. Using the speaker cover, the tablet is great for watching movies, videos and for music too.
What I didn’t like:
The primary camera of the Asus ZenPad 8.0 is an 8-megapixel shooter, while the front camera is a 5-megapixel one. The quality of pictures is very average and lack detail. The front camera should suffice for video chatting. The camera software is excellent.
Looking at the growth of smart phones and increasing the size of the new age smart phones and also increase of some great laptops I feel that the use of tab is decreasing a lot and slowly it’s going to become an obsolete segment. However, with Asus Zenpad, those who use tablets as their primary smartphones will be happy.
Available in two colours – Obsidian Black and Aurora Metallic, ZenPad 8.0 is priced at INR 17,999 with audio cover and INR 14,999 without audio cover.
