Although similar to last year's Zenpad S 8.0 slate, this new tablet has a different processor and features USB Type-C connectivity, as well as support for Verizon's 4G LTE network.

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.

  • 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)

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
