Asus ZenPad S 8.0 review: The price is right for this sleek Android tablet


Starting at $200, the 8-inch ZenPad costs less than the iPad Mini 2, yet looks and performs just as well as the Apple tablet.

The Asus ZenPad S 8.0 is affordable, lightweight and thin, with a sleek design. Its brilliant screen is razor sharp and can be color-corrected with preloaded Asus software. Adjusting the screen's color balance, saturation and sharpness is a breeze...

The front-facing speakers are weak, and the cameras takes underwhelming photos.

The Asus ZenPad S 8.0 is one of the best Android tablets around, with a price that belies its impressive quality.
