    ASUS MTK 8163 reviews

    10.1" ZenPad 10 Z300M 16GB Tablet (Wi-Fi, Gold) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All I Need In a Tablet This tablet is beautiful. I have used it for about a week now and am very pleased. It is lightweight and the processor seems to be plenty fast. I added an SD card to boost the memory capacity. I got the Asus streaming dongle and it streams perfectly to my TV. The only complaint I have is that the accompanying keyboard/audio dock seems to be unavailable anywhere.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great tablet excecpt for ASUS not supporting it. I've been using the tablet for about 2 months now. Overall happy with the purchase. Pro: It's quad processor plus it's 2GB of memory make it zippy and responsive. Screen is bright & clear from all angles. It's a good, mid level tablet able to do most daily tasks. Con: It's only downside is ASUS support. This tablet comes with Android 5 and will update to Android 6. But it will not update to Android 6.0.1 or Android 7. ASUS has no plans to update it further. The tablet is let down by lack of ASUS supporting it to the current Android operating system. Right out of the box it is already 2 Android versions behind.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good tablet for the price This is a very cheap tablet with quality a bit above what you would expect from the price The boot time is a bit longer than usual. The screen gives a definition with poor edges and some minor distortion but it is quite livable. The sound is ok Memory is easily augmented by adding a small card (64 megs in my case) I have been using it for over a week with no real problems. I use it for traveling and the wifi works well and the low weight is great on my back

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tabet but Asus ruined the memory upgrade options. I bought this based on my previous (and current) experience with my 4 year old Asus TF300. The Zenpad 10 Z300m is built very well, nice and solid without being heavy and not feeling flimsy to hold and work with. The touchpad is very responsive and there are several good options for customizing the screen colors, brightness, icon sizes, etc. The screen resolution is perfectly fine for a tablet in this price range. If you want to spend more money for another tablet that will do the same functions but has a higher res display, go for it. I just don't see the need. The 2mb processor is fast and the tab doesn't lag for what I use it for. This is a great tablet for the price but there are some cons in my book. Yes, the Z300m does support OTG with a micro usb otg adapter but there is no hdmi or mhl out capability. It does have Play To which allows you to mirror your screen to something like Chromecast but its not perfectly clear. My biggest complaint is that Asus has disabled the option that Android Marshmallow supports for augmenting the system memory with a micro sd card. Yes, you can add an sd card to store music, pics and other files but the ability to use it to move apps to it is not available. Shame on Asus for doing this, especially when there is only 16gb of system memory and a good amount is already taken by the os and all of the apps that Asus adds that can only be disabled but not uninstalled. Bad move, especially since this is not mentioned anywhere on the Asus website for this model nor on any specs from the companies selling this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty happy and a great price. Jeez ! Have owned a couple months and no complaints. There phone service / support, which I called twice with various questions is very good as well. Not so with Samsung in my experience. I use this mainly for internet ( Wi-Fi ) checking of emails, shopping, etc. , and as a portfolio for photography. I do not challenge it through any streaming or gaming type uses so can not speak to that. The sound is also really pretty decent on these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for lots of functionality! For the speed and actions you can perform on this tablet the price is more than worth it! Used it for a recent vacation to watch movies and play games and it worked perfectly! Picture is super clear and is able to do anything I need. Can also hook up a keyboard and add more uses!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good tablet for the price. Got this for my elderly father so he could primarily read eBooks with larger fonts and play simple card games, such as solitaire. It is simple to use, although I am still hiding or deleting most of the pre-installed apps that come with it because they won't be used or just confuse the home screens. After only a week it seems to still be working well. The on/off button is a bit difficult for an old man's not so dexterous fingers, but he is managing. I also wish it was a bit easier to find the back button so he can easily get out of any app.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tablet Checked out a bunch of tablets but I'm glad I waited for this one. Never had any problems with ASUS products and this tablet was well worth the wait. Fast - plenty of memory, options, etc... Touch screen works great so far. AA++
