Frank Bales says:

So when will they be available? The link (and Amazon) show it out of stock.

shashank shukla says:

what is retina screen exactly?

Carin Wogahn says:

Can you have two apps open on the same screen like split screen share?

nortexoid says:

Why did you test multitasking right after clearing the memory, and then go on to claim that it’s aggressive with closing apps? Makes no sense.

DR Paquette says:

Great review. Sylus is only ($29.99) and supposed to last for 2 years according to what they mention on Asus and Amazon site. Also, that tablet has a 7.1 virtual surround sound.

itsmezed says:

Great review!

I was wondering: is it possible to remove / disable any of the ASUS bloatware? And if so, how much of it?

Thanks 🙂

Mobidicke2 says:

Does the stylus come with the tablet?

Shogmaster says:

I’m 99% sure that this tablet uses N-Trig pen like Surface Pro 4, since Asus Windows active pens are N-Trig (e.g. Transformer Pro 3). But it lacks the coprocessor for the pen that MS put into SP4 and SB, thus will struggle with pen input when mated to CPUs with less muscle.

For instance, there is a huge pen performance difference in pressure curve and initial activation force between Atom X7 of Surface 3 and Core U of Surface Pro 3. Same pen, same digitizer, but the pressure curve and IAF was very CPU dependent from my tests.

HumphreyBriggs says:

In your opinion, is it worth spending more on this than the Chinese tabs like Teclast X98/ Chuwi etc?

For reference this is £250 and Chinese ones are ~£150

I don’t think I need dual boot or Windows, Android should be sufficient for me

EJ Joson says:

Hi, I’m thinking of getting the Asus 3S 10 as my first tablet. Do you think I should wait until the end of this year to see if there’s a better option or is this the best option for an Android tablet?

Also, is having a 4:3 screen ratio that bad? 😮

arif faizal says:

super amoled ?

Sushil Kumar says:

The best tablet would be upcoming the mediapad m3 which has a PPI of 359 and is more portable than any tablet. gorgeous amoled-like colors too.

Brad Wright says:

why does it have a hotspot option on quick toggles?

G. Flex says:

I’ve been reading about the SD card problem; unmounting at odd times. Is that a common issue?

Qban Celli says:

I stopped watching when you mentioned “retina” display twice in the first minute of the video.
This is not a “retina” screen. That is Apple talk.

Fat Tony says:

I was seriously considering buying this tablet but I finally decided to buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 instead.

cbr9927 says:

The images on this video does not really show off how thin the bezels are. Feels noticeably thinner and lighter than my IPAD Pro 9.7. Without question worth the 300 going price.

Waleed Khalid says:

honestly you are the best reviewer in youtube

JLFilms says:

10.1 inch?

Sandeev Vijayan says:

Dude! the you tube channel must be fine, but the internet connection is lagging there, I think. Surely download the video, then try running the downloaded video.

Bogdan Bosneaga says:

hy,it doesnt have 3g/4g?

John Doe says:

I liked this review because I wanted to see the Pen in action

Jay B says:

FYI, “retina display” is an Apple marketing term. There’s no such thing as an Android tablet with a “retina” display.

mcglover78 says:

I need a 8 inch one


can we use sim with it?

Asimo 3.14 says:

Asus is a not a Chinese brand, it is a taiwanese instead
