General Features

Metal Craftsmanship
The ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 has modern styling with clean lines and a metallic texture. Its forged aluminum body weighs just 0.95 lb, is 0.23" thin, and is accented by double diamond-cut edges. The ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 has an aluminum body that is milled with 0.08mm diamond-cutting technology to create a balance of sleekness and strength. ASUS then abrades the surface with a hyper-fine sanding process, polishing it to a smooth anodized finish.
A Bigger View with Finer Details
The ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 delivers mobile entertainment using its 9.7" 2K IPS display with VisualMaster technology, a 2048 x 1536 screen resolution, and a wide 178° viewing angle provides expansive visuals. The display is complemented by a 5.32mm bezel, which gives the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 a 78% screen-to-body ratio.
Realistic Viewing Experience
With ASUS VisualMaster technology, the ZenPad 3S 10 immerses you in a world of mobile entertainment. ASUS VisualMaster is a suite of visual enhancement technologies that combine hardware and software to optimize all aspects of the display, resulting in a more realistic viewing experience. Part of ASUS VisualMaster, ASUS Tru2Life technology, enhances pixels to deliver increased contrast and sharpness. When combined with ASUS' TruVivid display and Bluelight Filter, you'll view with real-world vibrancy.
Impress Your Ears, Inside and Out
Dual five-magnet speakers are driven by an NXP Smart AMP for expansive, high-volume output. When it's time for listening, the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 is able to output certified high-resolution audio to compatible devices at 24-bit / 192 kHz with DTS Headphone:X to pump virtual 7.1-channel surround sound straight to your ears.
Gaming Power
Beneath the exterior of the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 lies a six-core processor, 4GB RAM, and IMG GX6250 graphics. ASUS' ZenPad 3S 10 handles games and productivity tasks with ease. It also comes with a high-capacity 5900mAh battery to keep the entertainment going. With Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology, the ZenPad 3S 10 helps you to do more and wait less. Quick Charge 3.0 requires a certified 18W adapter, which is sold separately.
Fingerprint Sensor
ASUS ZenPad 3S 10's fingerprint sensor lets you unlock your tablet quickly with just a touch, providing a blend of strong security and convenience.
Capture the Magic of the Moment
The ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 has an 8-megapixel PixelMaster camera that captures high-resolution photos with hardly any shutter lag. Its low-light mode employs pixel-merging technology to capture up to 400% brighter photos in low light without the need for a flash. Intelligent contrast enhancement analyzes and optimizes each pixel in an image before it is reproduced, rendering more detail in the highlights and shadows.
Game Smart, Win Fast, Stream Smooth
To further enhance your ZenPad 3S 10, especially on gaming, ASUS is introducing a ZenUI - Game Genie. It has a pop up tool-bar and allows you to have a miniature in-app search window to look up related walkthroughs or information on the game you are playing. A built-in system enhancement booster helps to ease your worries, and a live broadcast feature enables you to live stream via YouTube Gaming or Twitch.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.

    ASUS 3S 10 reviews

    9.7" ZenPad 3S 10 64GB Tablet (Wi-Fi, Glacier Silver) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 198.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tablet purchase of all time, no doubt I got it right! Asus zenpad 3s 9 is truly amazing tablet that's fast, responsive, with a high quality screen resolution. I was considering purchasing a Samsung or iPad but cost was a factor. I wasn't going to purchase a refurbished item that was out of the question. I'm glad I did my research and found this one. It has the same great quality build that of iPad or Samsung have without the hefty price tag. It offers four gigs of ram and 64gb storage with expansion slot for upto an additional 128gb storage. One last thing I'm really amazed this product does heat up like my previous tablet. If you are considering a new tablet this is a must!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tablet I was deciding between this and the Samsung S2 which my wife has last years model. Both are good tablets and both are fast. The s2 is slightly lighter, but this tablet is much cheaper and performs equally well. The fingerprint reader is instantaneous,screen is sharp. I don't use a tablet for photos so no comment on that. The one negative is that ASUS app launcher did not allow me to group apps into my own folders. This was easily resolved by downloading the Google app launcher.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from good tablet if was not defective the battery holds a few hours and then at around 35% suddenly drops to 0% and shuts itself down. also when charging the device while turned off it charges up to 65% and stops there until you turn the device on then continues charging until around 80% then suddenly jumps to 100%. everything else is very good about this device but what's the point of creating a good device with unreliable parts. I just had it for two weeks but Asus Australia doesn't accept it for repair because I purchased from B&H which is considered a foreign retailer... So I would suggest thinking twice about buying an Asus especially from non-US countries.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the tablet. Best android on the market for the money Beautifully built machine. Lovely to look at, outstanding battery life, wonderful uhd screen. I love that the screen has a very narrow bezel, making it a bit smaller than most 9.7 inch machines. Perfect for travel, when you don't want to bring your $$$$$ laptop. The speakers are amazing. How they did that in an .29 inch package is beyond me. The touch screen is very responsive. None of this tapping three time to get it to obey. I would recommend this tablet. It is the bomb.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Tablet! If you are looking for a tablet with a nice sized screen with decent memory, and fair price, this is the tablet to buy. This is my second ASUS tablet, and I have been pleased with this new one. It is very reactive to touch as well as styllus pen. The graphics and color are vivid. This tablet also has a nice sound quality. If you would rather watch your videos without a headset, no problem. My last tablet I owned was a 10.1" screen. Even though this tablet is a tad bit smaller in size, I don't notice the difference. Add a microSD card, to the mix, and you have an incredible tablet that will get the job done for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Android Tablet in the Market Build Quality Excellent quality, thin and sleak design. The metal casing stands out, the bezel is minimal at the front. The fingerprint scanner is good, reads and unlocks very fast. Display Great display crisp colors and the touch is smooth and easy. Zen UI doesn't really have any lags. I'm using Adonit mini stylus with it and it works wonderfully as much as any passive stylus would, easy to write, navigate and highlight only problem is you won't get the features as with the Z Stylus. Performance Smooth flow in all apps but while watching 4K videos in YouTube it lags when the controls are active. Plays smoothly when in Fullscreen/ controls hidden. A lag was also there while using stylus input with Adobe reader. Camera Pretty good for a tablet but the 2k resolution display clearly makes the pictures seam not as great with a bit of noise at low lights. Battery Lasts about 7hrs in video playback through wifi. Even more when normal usage. Sound The Dolby speakers are really loud and the sound doesn't falter at high volumes. It clearly stands out when used with good upmarket headphones. Definitely a great buy for audiophiles. Software I would have preferred plain Android but Zen UI is smooth and there are features like the super note which works with Z stylus. The dual screen feature is absent which is kind of a let down considering the screen space that can be used otherwise. Moving between apps is smooth, there are no lags, zen UI gives the option of too much customization which was unnecessary. All in all can't complain. Pros I think I pretty much covered pros above. Cons Battery life/ capacity could have been better In built stylus would have made it superb instead of paying extra $30 for Z stylus. Multi-window function would have increased productivity. Asus bloatware could have been less but we can disable those are unwanted. I would have given 5 stars if they provided in-built stylus and plain android. But all in all I'm extremely satisfied

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good value tablet. Coming from full size Ipads and Ipad minis my wife is tired of the broken chargung cables and limited apps from Apple. I wanted a Samsung S2, but after skme research this Asus seemed like a better buy. I'm glad I did..its really nice. The colors just pop and it feels a lot lighter in weight even compared to the apple mini 2. The screen is responsive to touches..the finger print reader works well. Overall the tablet seems fast. The speakers are more than adequate. A couple cons: the glass screen is slightly raised above the aluminum bevel. There's a lack of high end / quality No aluminum keyboard cases yet.. This is a brand new product so accessories may yet be released. There's plenty of cheap cases available. We've only had it a couple days. So far its good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good device held back by its software. System works pretty well, no obvious bugs.� I guess the fingerprint reader could be a bit more accurate but its usable.� The hardware seems to keep up well with our needs.� The 4 gb of ram and the display make for a good view and nice daily performance. � � The main downside is the OS. I'm not a fan of ASUS' version of android.� �Its usable but highly skinned and missing simple navigation and customization features (why is there no shortcut to my battery usage????).� �I'm hoping in the semi near future to see some custom android "ROMS" being developed on XDA for this device, this would be a huge win because then i could get away from this sub standard version of android and have a nice overall device.
