I was really hoping for Asus to continue with out the need for a static home key. I like to hold my tablet in any orientation and have the home and navigation buttons to be in the same place and never have to worry about hitting the home button. Asus who invented the concept of a convertible tablet and laptop has opted to not have a keyboard their newest flagship tablet, but continues its offering of the accessory for its much less desirable 10 inch models. I am an enormous fan of Asus but was disappointed in this "flagship". I am willing to pay ASUS more money to have it done right with no compromises. Asus use to be the most innovative when it came to pushing the form and function of its devises. This looks like a Samsung, i-Pad mashup. I did not want to go with the Android Pixel C and was hoping for a device following in the heritage of the at the time ground breaking transformer prime series. Devises that were sexy, sleek with top bench marking hardware and offered keyboards that extended battery life, contestability in a Ultrabook transformed tablet. This was being touted as a come back tablet for both ASUS and Android for but coming in thicker then the pixel C with weaker software, less pixels and no keyboard a year after Apple, Sony and Google released their flagship devises is disappointing. I donÂ’t think of ASUS when in the market for mid to low end devises. HP, Dell and Acer usual fill those ranks. I am afraid this will be another flop for ASUS. On the brighter side the Asus S8 Tablet is still in my opinion a true flagship out performing other tablets almost 2 years since its launch, with style, great benchmarks, a killer screen forward facing speakers in a super slim metal and leather finish. There is some great value with this device. Still cranking out high performance unique tablets are SonyÂ’s x4 (full waterproof 10Â”) with keybard at 1000.00 CAD, the Pixel C with keyboard at 950.00 CAD and Asus S8 650.00 CAD with active Zen stylus. I will remain a strong supporter of ASUS but will not be writing any reviews for this device on this device.
if anyone will buy this good looking tablet, after 2 or 3 months of purchase your tablet will enable ASUS ghost touch.
4:3 optimum for browsing the web + book reading + gaming + hand grip, more space for landscape onscreen keyboard. A lot of benefits.
16:9 is only for some videos (Movies only) and nothing else.
Thats why 16.9 is not popular.
16:10 if buttons are physical. (As software onscreen + 16:9 would be too much on landscape mode)
Flossy420, 24 Jul 20164:3 is used for book reading and some games but generally 16:9 Is better Why the f is everyone saying 16:9 is best. Learn the difference from 16:9 and 16:10
Y on earth there is no sim here...
such a waste for this good looking tablet
This is now a real Android tablet for 2016! Nice job Asus! Not like Samsung that offers the same low specs each year.
