   The design has a 4:3 display and that is what makes this tablet distinct from it’s competitors. The Asus ZenPad 3S 10 is a good-looking tablet. It’s metal body is rather striking. I like the way the bezels are cut on the corners. The edges on this tablet have very fine curves and that is why it is so pleasant to hold in your hands. On the top right corner of this tablet, the user can locate the volume and power buttons. You can see also see the home button and it can be used also as a fingerprint scanner. There are two capacitive buttons that can be used for multitasking. On the top most point of the Asus ZenPad 3S 10, you will find a 3.5mm headphone socket and at the bottom you can find a USB Type-C port and NXP amp stereo speakers. The IPS screen on this tablet is it’s best feature. It delivers solid punches when it comes to images, color reproduction and fascinating contrast. This is all due to the VisualMaster technology of Asus. The viewing angles are really good. The audio on this tablet give out a solid performance and this is because of the AudioWizard app. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow 6.0 comes with the ZenUI 3.0 and it has an app called Mobile Manager. This app has settings that will allow the user to control apps. The Power Saver menu gives the user a series of battery modes. You can preserve the battery life or put more it.

This tablet needed only 7 seconds to secondary cameras can take good enough pictures but the contrast on these cameras fell short of my expectations and the video suffers from the same problem.
