Android tablet midrange... Asus Zenpad S 8.0

Found 15th Apr
Looking to replace my ageing ipad mini. Want a midrange android device with a 8" screen. The Asus Zenpad S 8.0 at around £170 seems to fit the bill. Any other suggestions or thoughts on the Asus?

Bloatware. So much bloatware.

I'm waiting to see the prices of the new lenovo tab 4. I don't want to spend more than around 150. The reviews around the web are good and they have various price points. Think they are released next month. Cheers Si

​If it can be rooted, that won't be a problem

Not keen on mine, the screen is great but other than that it's not been great, the tablet won't always charge, it runs extremely slow as it always seems to be running something in the background. It won't let me remove these apps (I'm not sure how to root one) and it restarts itself randomly. But i could have just had a bad one. I no longer use it and went back to my old tablet.

you must have a bad one!

I have removed as much bloatware as possible and it runs just fine. Battery life is great and the screen is excellent with much customisation possible

Not really fund any issues at all with mine except teh camaera is at best mediocre

Front faccing speakers are great for watching videos etc

Best tablet I have had in many years
