Design And Display

ASUS has done a commendable job by keeping the build quality of the tablet top notch. The back looks like it has a premium leather back but instead it is a plastic and can be removed. The weight of the Zenpad 8.0 is just right.

zenpad 8.0 backThere is a 8 inch HD display in the tablet which got Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The pixel density on screen is 213 dpi and all this translates to a crisp and vivid display. The touch is also good and I enjoyed watching movies and played a lot of games.

Performance

zenpad 8.0 antutu benchmarkThe Zenpad 8.0 has 2 GB of RAM and a octa core Qualcomm processor. The GPU is Adreno 405. But what does this means to you as a user?

Regula Users: I was able to surf internet and open multiple tabs all at the same time. Checking emails was smooth and fast and there is a lot of productive work which can be done on the tablet.

Gamers: Heavy gaming is what the Zenpad 8.0 can handle easily. I did a lot of gaming on it in the form of Walking War Robots and the experience was smooth. The thing to note is that the tablet does not heats up even after long hours of gaming. The Antutu Benchmark gave the tablet a score close to 30,000 which is a respectable score.

Camera

The rear 8 Mp camera on the tablet is sans flash but that does not deter it from clicking good quality images. Places where low light is wide-spread, you can turn on the low light mode and the image comes out really well. The front facing 2 MP is impressive and selfies come out detailed and of good quality.

The second image of the shoes was taken under low lights using the low light mode. The result is good.

Battery Life

There is no mention on what exactly is the battery size in the Zenpad 8.0 on the box. Since the battery compartment is sealed, I could not figure it out after opening the back plate. All I can say is that during my usage, I found the battery lasts long enough for a decent use. It lasted for like a day and half when I did 2 hours of gaming and lot many downloads and general use. If you insert a SIM card and use the tablet for calling too, the expect the battery to last atmost a day. Overall, it is a better than average performance on the battery front.

Verdict

The Zenpad 8.0 from ASUS really hits the sweet spot. I like the build quality and the tablet performs well. The camera has the features of pixelmaster camera app seen in ASUS’s phones and can click good low light images. There are a lot many options to increase the storage space like inserting a micro SD card or opting for USB OTG. A good to go tablet.
