This sleek Asus tablet is the iPad Air 2 of the Android worldSleek, chic and affordably priced, the Asus ZenPad One 3s starts at $299 (£235, AU$400).
[MUSIC] The Asus ZenPad One 3S reminds me of the Apple iPad Air 2 in a lot of ways, except it's $100 cheaper. For $300, the Asus tablet techs doubled the amount of internal storage as the iPad Air 2. Has an expandable micro SD slot, a fingerprint sensor, and houses a USB C port. Meaning it's a fast-charging machine. Like the iPad, the Asus tablet is incredibly sleek. Its smooth aluminum back looks and feels great. Though it has thinner bezels and a similar HD screen resolution as the iPad Air 2, the Apple tablet still has better screen quality. In comparison, the Asus' screen was more prone to reflection. I don't like that it only has speakers on one end, because it's easy to muffle sound when holding it. But that's my biggest gripe. Otherwise, I think it's a solid ten inch Android tablet. Spending $400 on the tablet might be a hard pill to swallow. But if you can stomach $300, the Asus ZenPad One 3s is the way to go. [MUSIC]
