A chill tablet for a cool price
The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is perfectly priced for those interested in a tablet primarily for watching video. Without compromising a sleek design and sharp HD screen, it's a cheaper alternative to the Apple iPad Air 2.
The home button doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

The tablet has a USB-port, so it's fast to charge.
Despite being a cheaper alternative to the lux Apple iPad Air 2, the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 isn't an ugly duckling itself. Its aluminum back looks sleek and feels like butter on your fingertips.
Loud and clear
The tablet's speakers are loud and clear when it comes to dialogue in movies, but they're disappointingly lacking in bass for music. They're also located on one edge, making them easy to block when holding the tablet in landscape orientation.
The buttons are located on the top right edge of the tablet. They're slightly ethched, making them easy to grip.
Unfortunately, the screen is more prone to glare than the iPad Air 2's. That's one area where it can't compete
Cool and compact
The rounded edges make holding the tablet in your palms very comfortable.
All of these little things combined make the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 a worthy adversary to the iPad Air 2.
