ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 LTE Launched Packing Snapdragon 650 SoC

If there was anything lacking about the original ASUS ZenPad 3S 10, it’s that there wasn’t a variant with 4G/LTE support. Fast forward a few months and we now have the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 LTE packing a Snapdragon 650 SoC and the much-appreciated support for high speed data on the go. Unfortunately, it’s also a little pricey with a $405 price tag (about Php20.2k as of writing).

The ZenPad 3S 10 LTE comes with a 9.7 inch QXGA IPS display and has a Z Stylus with support for up to 1,024 pressure levels. You also get 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded further via microSD for an extra 128GB.

The ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 LTE can be considered a daring endeavor as tablet sales have slowed down over the years while smartphones have flourished. ASUS has delivered a high end tablet while other manufacturers have settled for the mediocre. If you’re looking for an alternative to the similarly premium Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, the ZenPad 3S 10 LTE is certainly worth taking a look at.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
