Asus ZenPad 3 8.0 Z581KL Tablet Review

 

Zen of wishes? Asus' new tablet with the size of an iPad Mini not only offers good features including WWAN modem and stereo speakers, but it is also comparatively affordable. Does the more expensive competition have a problem?

decent build quality ; microSD-card slot ; USB Type-C with OTG support ; integrated LTE modem ; fast WLAN ; crisp display with good colors ; no throttling in the stress test ; ZenUI with many additional features…

…and many software bugs ; case not very stable ; WWAN modem without 2G support ; mediocre webcam ; no NFC ; no fingerprint sensor ; microSD-card cannot be formatted as internal storage

Asus managed to improve some drawbacks of the ZenPad S 8.0 with the new ZenPad 3 8.0, including the throttling under sustained workloads as well as the below-average battery runtimes. It is unfortunate though that the formerly exceptional design was...

Zen rêvée ? La nouvelle tablette d'Asus, de la taille d'un iPad Mini, offre non seulement un bon panel de fonctionnalités incluant un modem WWAN et des haut-parleurs stéréo, elle est aussi bon marché pour son segment. Les concurrents plus chers ont-ils...

Kort testrapport Asus ZenPad 3 8.0 Z581KL Tablet

 

Zen-droom? Asus' nieuwe tablet met het formaat van een iPad Mini biedt niet alleen goede features zoals zijn WWAN-modem en stereo-luidsprekers, maar hij is ook relatief betaalbaar. Zit de duurdere concurrentie in de problemen?

degelijke bouwkwaliteit; microSD-kaart-slot; USB Type-C met OTG-ondersteuning; geïntegreerde LTE-modem; snelle WLAN; scherp scherm met goede kleuren; geen throttling in de stress-test; ZenUI met talrijke extra features

en veel software-bugs; instabiele behuizing; WWAN-modem zonder 2G-ondersteuning; matige webcam; geen NFC; geen vingerafdruklezer; microSD-kaart kan niet formateerbaar als intern geheugen

De ZenPad 3 8.0 is een goed uitgeruste tablet met een relatief lage prijs die anderzijds op geen enkel vlak echt uitblinkt. Veel kleine software-bugs hadden een negatieve invloed op de gebruikservaring tijdens het testen.

Краткий обзор планшета Asus ZenPad 3 8.0 Z581KL

 

Все, что только можно пожелать? Новый планшет Asus обладает рядом положительных черт, среди которых 3G-модуль и стереодинамики, при этом он значительно дешевле схожего по габаритам iPad Mini. В чем же он уступает своим дорогостоящим аналогам?

Хорошее качество сборки, Слот для карт памяти, USB Type-C с поддержкой OTG, LTE, Быстрый Wi-Fi модуль, Четкий дисплей с отличной цветностью, Отсутствует троттлинг, Удобная оболочка ZenUI со множеством функций

и багов, Корпус не очень прочный, Отсутствует поддержка 2G, Посредственная передняя камера, Нет NFC и сканера отпечатков пальцев, MicroSD-карта не может быть использована для установки приложений

ZenPad 3 8.0 стоит недорого и неплохо оснащен, но он не предлагает ничего нового и обладает рядом как технических, так и программных недоработок.
