Cost-effective Super ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 tablet experience

Tencent Digital (Compiler: Human) For tablet PCs, ordinary users only have two purposes: productivity and entertainment. As a productivity tool, a tablet computer needs to have sufficient performance, an intuitive software interface, and a wealth of accessories to help users improve their efficiency as much as possible. If it is an entertainment tool, then it needs a gorgeous display effect. , excellent sound effects and long-lasting endurance.

The most representative tablet PC, like the iPad Pro, combines productivity and entertainment, but the 9.7-inch version costs $599 (about RMB 4,140). It's not cheap, and not everyone is willing to buy it. The other ASUS latest ZenPad 3S 10, while also taking into account the productivity and entertainment, the price is only half of the iPad Pro.

The ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 is priced at $300 (approximately RMB). It is also equipped with a 10-inch display and has an all-aluminum metal body, 2K resolution display, good processor and 5900mAh capacity. battery. From the perspective of paper parameters, ZenPad 3S 10 is a very cost-effective product. As for the actual performance? Whether it is worth buying, you have to look in detail.


From the appearance, the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is very surprising, the all-metal body looks absolutely value for money. The ZenPad 3S 10's shell is made of one-piece aluminum metal with no plastic elements, and the mountain is in place in many details.

The metal casing on the back of the ZenPad 3S 10 not only looks very textured, but also feels smooth and smooth. The camera is designed in the upper left corner of the back, while in the center is the Asus Logo. The four corners of the ZenPad 3S 10 use a round design that helps us get higher in the hand, and the use of the matte process saw Asus pay more attention to details and the overall design is very satisfying.

The front of the ZenPad 3S 10 is a 9.7-inch screen, and Asustek makes the ZenPad 3S 10's screen share reach 78%, which is a very good ratio, and it is quite good for browsing visual effects. Although the top and bottom of the border area is relatively thick, but due to the addition of fingerprint recognition of the Home, in fact, it can be considered acceptable. The fingerprint recognition speed of ZenPad 3S 10 is very fast. On both sides of the Home button is a capacitance return key and a multi-tasking key, which is basically a design idea of ​​a mainstream Android device.

On the right side of the ZenPad 3S 10 are the power/lock screen buttons and volume keys, and they are also made of aluminum. The volume button has good force feedback, but the power button is a bit tight, and sometimes I even have to press twice to activate the screen. Although this is not a big problem, it sometimes seems quite troublesome.

My biggest complaint about the ZenPad 3S 10 design comes from the microSD card slot, which is too tight and takes a little effort.

But overall, ASUS did a great job in designing the ZenPad 3S 10, both in terms of workmanship and style. At the same time, the thickness of 5.8 mm is thinner than the iPad Pro, and the weight of 430 grams is also slightly lighter than the 437 grams of the iPad Pro.


The ZenPad 3S 10's 9.7-inch screen uses a 2048x1536-pixel IPS panel, and Asustek uses VisualMaster technology to dramatically increase the screen's contrast and sharpness, at least from my viewing point of view. Although I prefer the effects of AMOLED screens, to be honest, the Asus ZenPad 3S 10 screen is no worse than AMOLED. The screen was bright enough, and the text was clear. The 178-degree viewing angle also gave full play to the advantages of the IPS screen. We can see the above content at any angle.

In addition to the screen itself is excellent enough, Asus also provides a dedicated tool to allow users to adjust, and after spending some time, by increasing the intensity of green and red, you can reduce the screen Blu-ray 30% at night and reduce the night Use eye irritation.

The ZenPad 3S 10's screen has a 4:3 ratio, and the iPad is of the same type, and I'm glad to see more and more Android devices adopt this ratio. This kind of design allows us to browse the web and check e-mail and other productivity operations more smoothly, but when watching video, you have to endure two black bars.

Processor and performance

If you need to use the ZenPad 3S 10 as a productivity tool and entertainment tool, performance is the first prerequisite, and the speed must be fast. If you think the price of ZenPad 3S 10 will affect performance, then you are wrong.

ASUS equipped the ZenPad 3S 10 with a six-core MediaTek 8173 processor, which includes two 2.1GHz ARM Cortex A72 cores and four 1.7GHz ARM Cortex A53 cores. The GPU side is the PowerVR GX6250, which also has 4GB of running memory. If you don't feel bad about the hardware parameters, simply sum up one word and soon.

Although ZenPad 3S 10's performance is not enough to make you startle the chin, but at least it's performance far exceeds our expectations. Whether browsing social networks, checking emails, watching high-definition video streaming media, or running multiple applications, the ZenPad 3S 10 is the perfect solution. I recently discovered a game called Mortal Combat X that runs very smoothly on the ZenPad 3S 10. If you want to, spending more money on high configs will get a better experience.


In terms of connectivity, the ZenPad 3S 10 can basically meet the basic needs of all Android tablet users, including 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, Miracast, GPS, and gyroscopes. However, ZenPad 3S 10 occasionally experiences a few seconds of disconnection when I download large files. Before I thought it was a home network problem, but after trying other network connections, the problem still existed. However, after my last update through the software system, this problem was solved and never appeared again.

On the interface side, the ZenPad 3S 10 uses a USB Type-C connection, with built-in 32GB/64GB of storage, and, if not enough, a 128GB microSD extension.


The ZenPad 3S 10 is equipped with an 8-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front camera, supporting 1080p HD video capture, but without the flash, the ZenPad 3S 10 basically does not work in the evening.

The camera application of ZenPad 3S 10 basically covers all functions, including HDR, slow motion, delay shooting and depth-of-field switching, and can even be used to scan QR codes directly without the need of a third-party app.

ZenPad 3S 10 is also rich in camera function, including white balance, ISO, exposure adjustment, etc. can be set manually, but although the function is rich, but the interface design is a bit out of date.


Basically, we rarely use a tablet computer to take pictures, unless in exceptional circumstances should be emergency. It is strange to know that taking a picture with a 7-inch tablet is a very strange one. If it is a 10-inch tablet like the ZenPad 3S 10, it is very uncomfortable.

For the photo effect of ZenPad 3S 10, we should not have too high a requirement. Basically, it is enough to present the basic information and the scene of the scene. The ZenPad 3S 10 has a lot of photo noise, and the front camera is also normal, but it's OK for video calls.

Video quality

The ZenPad 3S 10 video capture is actually similar to that of the camera. Although the 1080p resolution is very good, the screen effects are relatively general. No matter what the details or the exposure, there is not much to be introduced.

If you have to find an advantage, it is a good sound when shooting video.

Multimedia experience

As we expected, the 2K resolution 10-inch display is definitely a weapon for watching movies and games. At the same time, Asus also equipped the ZenPad 3S 10 with stereo speakers for a more enjoyable multimedia experience.

The ZenPad 3S 10's speakers come from NKP and are compatible with 24-bit/192Hz audio, and the ZenPad 3S 10 is also ASUS's first device to support DTS X 7.1 audio.

Asustek's SonicMaster 3.0 technology for the ZenPad 3S 10 allows us to constantly adjust the audio effects. If you consider the price and size of the ZenPad 3S 10, ZenPad 3S 10 will definitely impress you with multimedia experience. .


The ZenPad 3S 10 is a tablet with excellent multimedia effects and therefore requires great battery life to provide support. In addition to the 5900mAh capacity battery, the ZenPad 3S 10 also supports Qualcomm's QC 3.0 fast charging technology, so it also left a deep impression on the entire battery life.

If you just look at e-mails every day, check out some social networks, and play a game for a while, the ZenPad 3S 10 can easily last for 3 days. Of course, the premise is that the brightness of the screen will not be adjusted too high, after all, 2K resolution 10 inch screen is also a big consumer.

In charging time, it takes 3 hours and 23 minutes to charge the entire battery. However, for the devices supporting QC 3.0 technology, this speed is not fast, and there is still much room for improvement.

to sum up

ASUS has made a lot of bets on the ZenPad 3S 10. As a cost-effective Android tablet, it is not an easy task to break through the iPad Pro.

First of all, ZenPad 3S 10 seems to be "value for money", all-metal and ultra-thin body is definitely the best in its class, and in the process of use, ZenPad 3S 10's performance is not just value. High only.

The 2K resolution screen is sufficient for productivity and multimedia, and the dual speakers are also very effective. Plus the excellent battery life and the $299 killer price are definitely one of the most cost-effective Android tablets on the market.

Although the camera of the ZenPad 3S 10 is relatively poor, we can't demand too much for a tablet computer. After all, few people will use such a 10-inch tablet computer to take pictures, so there is no need to care too much about this shortcoming.

Overall, the ZenPad 3S 10 is an Android tablet with a very high cost performance. The price of 299 US dollars can even be seen as the most cost-effective choice, not one. So if you're going to start with an Android productivity tool or look at the video, the ZenPad 3S 10 is a great choice.
