When the ASUS ZenPad 8.0 Z380M was released couple of months ago it looked like any other new tablet on the market. But after a closer look I reached to a conclusion that this little device might be one of the very best cheap 8 inch Android tablets on the market today.

The reasons

  • Design and looks 
Well, first of all the ZenPad 8.0 Z380M has quite an appealing form factor and nice looks that will suit most people's taste. It is also compact and lightweight which makes it a very good choice for people looking for something that is not going to feel heavy on the go.

  • Technology
ASUS ZenPad 8.0 Z380M won't surprise you with any cutting edge technology but it offers enough so that the average tablet user won't feel under powered. I would recommend you to buy only the 2GB version as you will agree 1GB is way under the standard for a modern tablet. Other than that the quad-core MediaTek processor is an entry-level solution that works fine for media, browsing and some light gaming.

  • Price
Probably that is the biggest advantage of the ZenPad 8.0 Z380M. You can easily find this tablet for less than $160 which seems quite a deal for a premium brand Android tablet.
