Asus Zenpad Z8s Android tablet with Snapdragon 652 now available on Verizon
Asus Zenpad Z8s
This new slate is a direct successor to last year's ZenPad Z8, keeping the 7.9-inch IPS display and US$249.99 price tag, but featuring a faster processor, more memory, and Android Nougat instead of Marshmallow.

Last year, Verizon added an exclusive Asus slate to its portfolio. Dubbed ZenPad Z8, it had a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, 2 GB RAM, and Android Marshmallow on board, as well as a 7.9-inch IPS,  display with 2,048 x 1,536 pixels. Now, this slate received a follow-up that has the same display and carries the same price tag but comes with noticeable improvements in other key areas.

The new Asus ZenPad Z8s is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, next to 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5 MP and 13 MP front/back cameras, USB Type-C connectivity, a classic audio jack, 4G LTE connectivity, as well as a 4,680 mAh battery. Unlike its predecessor, it runs Android 7.0 Nougat.

Those interested to acquire this slate can get it for a single US$249.99 payment, but Verizon also offers them the chance to grab it for 24 monthly payments of US$10.41 each. At last, signing up for a two-year data plan can push the price down to just US$149.99.

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.
