Doesn't feel or look cheap

Though the ZenPad Z8's price puts it in the budget tablet category, it doesn't look, feel, or act like a cheap tablet.

Lightweight

Since it's made of plastic instead of aluminum, it's also lighter than the iPad Mini 2.

Unsurprisingly, the cameras on the tablet take underwhelming photos. You're better off using your phone.
