I've been price watching these Zenpad 8 S tabs for weeks. This is the first time I've seen any significant price drop. I jumped on the 269 version which should arrive this week.

Previous tab is Nexus 7 32G which has been very very good. It gets 4-5 hrs use per day - music while working, clash of clans, evening browsing, checking kids grades, you name it. Now it's 2 yrs old and a gazillion miles on it. Starting to have touch screen and power button issues.

I really wanted Nexus 9, but QC has been iffy. Also I read nook books daily, and the N9 seems heavy/large for that. Zenpad is lighter and smaller, but still a bigger screen than the N7.

Can't see going to a Fire tab because I'm stuck on the flexibility of the Android.

Why did I buy the 64G version? Well I had the same sort of choice when I got the Nexus 7 except then it was 16G or 32G. I sprung for more storage and never regretted it. I've only had to do file cleanup once or twice in 2+ years. The extra $100 for the better Zenpad not only gets you more storage, it also bumps the processor from 1.3 to 2.3 GHz, better wifi, more RAM, and the newer USB C. That's a lot of + for $100.
FWIW, If you are in the market for sub $200 8 inch tablets, you should also consider dell venue 8 7000 that goes for about $180 Refurbished or $200 new... Slightly bigger, a better screen (OLED) and a longer battery Life, according to the following review.

If you're downgrading from iPad, I would suggest you give a good look to Amazon Fire HD or HDX. They're amazing, content rich tablets, that have fast browsers and are very capable. Otherwise, Nexus all the way. ASUS can be nice if you gut it, but with CM and others you'll always be one step behind the latest update.

Had 2 GB version. Good performance, very slim, and great build quality. For this price, may buy one for my mom. Great price!

These do have micro SD slot. Most people shouldn't spring for the upgrade to 4 GB RAM. You can have a LOT running simultaneously in Android and still be using between 2-3 GB RAM.

... I am a bargain kind of person, though. If I knew I'd only use the tab for 4-5 activities, that $169 price seems really good for the 32G version.

Intel based android product, know wonder they are trying to dump it. Still, love that screen.


If anyone wants some reviews on knock off tablets that use the ipad screen:

You can get the non-S version for ~$100 if you look/shop around. Just got one for my wife a few weeks ago. You "downgrade" to 1280x800 screen and the processor is a little slower.... The 380CX we got has 16GB storage and 2GB ram though. I have used it briefly and seems fine enough for $100 and general tablet usage while still having access to the Play Store.

We considered getting the $50 Fire, but no play store access was a downer.
