    Bad: Crapware

    The Asus ZenPad S 8.0 is one of the best compact Android tablets you can buy for less than £200, thanks to its impressive portability, comfortable user experience and dependable performance. It's a shame it's bogged down in crapware, but at least you can...

    Bad: underwhelming battery, not very bright screen, bad contrast, low benchmarks compared to other models with lower specs, lots of bloatware, too many options, settings and gimmicks, feels fragile, poor filming compared to photo taking, cold colors

    The ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 is a tablet that was unveiled by ASUS at this summer's Computex 2015 and seemed pretty impressive back then. Now we received the slate for testing, in the Z580CA version, complete with a slim design and 4 GB of RAM. The product is a...

    Bad: Disappointing battery life, Poor camera and video recording performance, Underpowered speakers, Lacks advanced multitasking functions

    How much would you pay for a tablet that comes with an 8-inch 2K display, new USB Type-C connector, 8MP/5MP camera combo, svelte/elegant design, 64-bit Intel Atom processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage with microSD expansion? How about $299 for the en...

    Bad: Cameras are perhaps too sensitive to light, Too much bloatware, Underwhelming battery life, USB Type-C port is limited to USB 2.0 speeds

    ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 - Find it On AmazonASUS has a history of building Android tablets with solid specs for the money (MeMO Pad, Nexus 7) and the ZenPad S 8.0 is yet another example. It has a really nice looking display with a 2048x1536 resolution, a fair bi...

    Good: slim and light case, unique look, powerful hardware, 4 GB of RAM, good display, acceptable cameras & speakers, fair price policy

    Bad: poor stability, moderate battery life, throttling, features are missing

    As already mentioned at the end of the preview, the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 has the potential for a top tablet. Our in-depth review could not change this impression. However, it is not good enough for a place in our charts. For that, the Asus flagship has a few...

    Good: Nice and unique hardware design, Fast enough for most tasks, Great front-facing speakers

    Bad: Bad software, Insane amount of bloatware, Android has become a stagnant tablet OS

  • As I said in the introduction, its been a long time since we've seen a tablet from ASUS that wasn't aimed at the low end of the market. The ZenPad S Z580CA isn't a $500 flagship tablet, but with the specifications it provides it's essentially a high end 8...

    Bad: The software Oh, Asus. It's nice that you're trying, but maybe try a bit harder? Most of the included features are of little use and there are so many bloatware apps. It's also still based on Android 5.0

  • Good: Lightweight, Amazing speakers, Impressive display, Solid overall performance

    Bad: Mediocre battery life, ZenUI bloatware is awful, Thermal issues

    There's a lot to like with this tablet. It's fast, looks nice, sounds amazing, and USB-C is clearly the way of the future. The software mess that is ZenUI is unfortunate, and the weirdly aggressive thermal regulation is a problem. While neither is a deal...
