Asus Has Good Tablet Computer Reviews

On average Asus Z3745 processor tablet computers have good reviews compared to other brands as do all tablets produced by Asus.

Easy to Use

One Asus VivoTab 8 owner who reviewed it considered that it was comfortable and easy to hold. Fob L. gave it a score of 5 stars and said on Amazon “Comfortable to hold in one hand” in their Asus VivoTab 8 review. One person who reviewed the Asus VivoTab 8 wrote that it was easy to use. Pauldelille wrote on Amazon two years ago “Is handy to have”.

Good Battery Life

Some people thought this tablet had a good battery life. Gareth Watson said “The battery life is good”. Glenn Dillon he said in his review of the Asus VivoTab 8 “The screen is nice, battery life is quite decent”.

Reasonably Priced

Two people said in their reviews that the Asus VivoTab 8 was good value for money. Fob L. gave it a score of 5 stars and wrote two years ago “Great tablet better than the over priced and over rated equivalent iPad”. In the same month Lazaro mentioned on Amazon “Finally something that competes with the Surface's with a smaller screen and a decent price” in his review and gave it an excellent review score.

Good for Games

One customer who reviewed it said that it was good playing games on. Pauldelille wrote “Good for games, films, outlook, note-taking”.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

The VivoTab 8 has a fairly large internal storage capacity (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other tablets of a similar age and spec to the VivoTab 8. The internal storage capacitys of tablets of this spec and age range from 8GB to 130GB.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 32GB internal storage capacity tablets and we think the Yoga Tablet 2[pl_2567550_price], and the Yoga Tab 2 Pro[pl_2594907_price] both from Lenovo or the DELL Venue 8 Pro[plb_2457316_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Tablet computers with a larger internal storage capacity that might be worth considering include the 885 Industry[pl_2873059_price] (64GB and higher rated), the Terra Pad 1085 Industry[pl_2908709_price] (64GB and higher rated), or the Terra Pad 885 Industry[pl_2953804_price] (64GB and higher rated) all from Wortmann AG.

10 Reasons Against

Inferior Sound Quality

One Asus VivoTab 8 reviewer considered that the Asus VivoTab 8 did not have good sound quality. Pauldelille mentioned on Amazon two years ago “There seems to be the added problem of the speakers which interfere with the stylus.” in their review of this tablet however despite that they still scored the product 80 out of 100.

Poor Connectivity

One customer thought it was not good in terms of HDMI connections. Pauldelille mentioned in their review of the Asus VivoTab 8 “It is a shame there is no HDMI port” but despite that they gave this tablet a rating of 80 out of 100.

Not 4G

The Asus VivoTab 8 is not 4G. Most of the other tablets of a comparable spec and age to the VivoTab 8 are also not 4G.
