This sleek Asus tablet is the iPad Air 2 of the Android world
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.
