Asus ZenPad 8.0 - Product Review

Good Morning Dear Friends!

To begin with and to be honest, I am not a very tech savvy person!

Having said that, I am all the same thrilled to have received a Great New Year Gift in the form of an Asus ZenPad 8.0 Z380KL (Black) from the Lovely and Generous Asus Team to get it reviewed. This is my first Tablet (I get to keep it!) and I am pretty happy about it.

First Impression:

General Look:

It's elegant and can be carried in your bag and fits in your hands just like a diary or a clutch! It does weigh 350 gms and is not very easy to be carried around in hand but one can always use a bag!!! It came with an Audio cover which has an integrated surround sound.

Battery Life:

I charged it as suggested and it does have a good battery life. Since I use most of my social sites in my laptop, I could go around with it for more than 15+ hours without charging.


The tablet has an 8 inch display with a resolution of 1200x800 pixels with dts HD premium surround and Corning Gorilla glass.

My daughter is a game enthusiast though I am not! She is thrilled by the clarity and sharpness of the 8 inch display that makes gaming an amazing experience. I do love music and would love to watch movies too...the tab is just ideal for all of it!


Since mine is an art blog I rely greatly on pictures...I do have a camera but I mostly depend on my mobile as it's easy to carry around. Since everyone has a DSLR and such hi tech cameras these days, capturing beautiful shots is never a problem.

For a rear camera with 8MP/5MP auto focus and front camera with 2MP (with 140 degree selfie panorama), I hadn't expected the pictures to turn out to be this good. I tried in a lighted room, at night, outdoor during day and every time I got good results except when the light fell from one side of the window into the room. I did find the Trulife being applied a bit there though. I am impressed with the result so far.

The weight with the audio cover is a bit more than comfortable.

Overall, I loved it!
