Although tablets are no longer selling as they were a few years ago, some big names in the industry still bet on this market. Asus is such a brand, and the new Zenpad Z8 is a tablet that joins Verizon Wireless' portfolio.

  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 8 MP back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB Type-C, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with ZenUI on top
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.7 pounds; 8.08X5.37X0.3 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: 4680 mAh lithium-polymer (non-removable)

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
