CONS
- Not many things to tell here. It would be nice if it came with a stylus. The stylus costs additional $29.99 and it requires an AAAA battery to function. I'll update this review over time when I notice something additional.

I bought a case MoKo ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 Case, Ultra Compact Slim Lightweight Smart Shell Triple Folding Stand Cover Case with Auto Wake / Sleep for 9.7" ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 Z500M Andriod Tablet 2016 Release, Black for $8.99. It fits perfectly and looks good.

VS iPad Pro 9.7
Unlike iPad Pro, this does not have an 4G option, but it lots of advantages over an iPad. ASUS Zenpad Z500M has a 64 GB memory in base model (vs 32 GB of iPad). 4 GB ram with ASUS vs 2 GB on iPad Pro. Having exactly the same screen size and ratio as iPad, this tablet is a bit narrower than iPad and a tiny bit lighter. The screen resolution is the same as that of iPad (264 ppi) and at the same time you can expend the storage with ASUS reaching up to 320 GB, while with iPad you are stuck with what you get. iPad Pro has better camera and speakers. The speakers on the ASUS tablet are very very good and loud though. The camera is still quite good, but just not like on iPad Pro. Also iPad Pro has a 4G option, this tablet does not provide 4G connectivity. Battery life is more or less the same for both tablets, although ASUS charges crazy fast. Last but not least - the price !!! ASUS made a great job here. iPad Pro costs $599 + $99 for the pencil and you are stuck with the 32 GB storage it comes with.

With ASUS Zenpad Z500M you get premium quality tablet for the half price. Stylus is an additional $29.99, and you have a great tablet for less than $329. You also get 100 GB free Google Drive storage for 2 years and expandable storage via micro SD card.
