Today, Asus is a competent combination of good features and a great price. Those who want to buy high quality equipment, obviously and not pay too much for it, a lot of money should look at the company's products. The tablet market is slowly fading due to lack of interest from users. Like many manufacturers, the brand has reduced the number of devices manufactured, but among the relatively old models there are several interesting devices even in 2019. The best Asus tablets are presented below.

The problem with the tablet market is that making them on Android is not recommended due to the increase of diagonals in smartphones. At the same time, Windows is more work-friendly and has multimedia capabilities. For this reason, many manufacturers are increasingly offering tablets or keyboards. This is logical because, if necessary, the user receives a functional laptop, and if this is not necessary, simply remove the keyboard and use the device as a regular tablet.
Transformer Mini is perfect for entertainment and work. First of all, the performance is enjoyable – a great chipset for a mobile platform, a decent set of high-speed memory. There are all the necessary outputs – USB 3.0, 3.5, microUSB, MicroSD, microHDMI. However, not only the filling is praised with a pattern. The device is made in a very elegant, thin metal housing. Its weight is 620 grams. A 250-gram detachable keyboard will not weigh much on the model, but will extend the functionality. In addition, you can work with the pen that comes with the kit.
The tablet has a built-in support on a pivoting mechanism, which will give an inclination of up to 170 degrees, which means anywhere – regardless of whether it is an office, car or home, it will be convenient to use. To ensure that the owner has no problems while working on the road, the IPS matrix was created using its own technology aimed at reducing glare. In order to obtain a high quality sound, two powerful speakers and proprietary Sonic Master technology were used. Another nice bonus – the device is able to operate for up to 12 hours even with the included wireless interfaces.

The detachable keyboard has received a new mounting system that will allow you to tilt the screen at any convenient angle. The matrix received low HD resolution, but taking into account Windows 10 operating system and technology, this is enough to enhance the image.
The manufacturer has not indicated the battery capacity, but according to official data, it will be sufficient for 11 hours of watching videos and working fully. The Intel chip and a good memory set make it the universal model for any task – from entertainment to work. This is also facilitated by the required set of connectors – 3.5, microUSB, microHDMI, USB 3.0.
Unfortunately, the device did not receive support for SIM cards, which imposes certain restrictions on Internet operation if the user is on the go. On the other hand, Wi-Fi 802.11 needle will provide high speed connection in the presence of connection points, and a smartphone can be one of them.

The device received a good internal filling, sufficient for games or work. Built-in DTS Headphone X technology enhances sound and provides virtual surround sound in headphones. The built-in review speakers play clean and loud, allowing you to enjoy movies on a large, beautiful screen with wide viewing angles.

The powerful 7800 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology allows the device to run for up to 16 hours.

The eight-inch tablet on Android 6.0 gives the user enough performance to perform simple daily tasks. The device is not designed for games or to work with a large number of applications at the same time, but for those who need a high quality gadget, with a good display and sound for little money, it will work best. Sitting on the net, watching movies or listening to music on the go is enough.
The ratio of the usable surface of the screen to the front surface is 76.5%, meaning the size of the device is smaller than other 8-inch models. The IPS matrix is capable of displaying an excellent image due to the complex built-in software features specially designed for image enhancement. Similarly, the company took care of the sound. In the headset, the device offers 7.1 virtual sound.
A nice bonus is Sim support, the user can go online anywhere. The model's autonomy is 10 hours, which is good enough for an 8-inch diagonal device. A small 16 GB internal drive extends with a slot for a memory card up to 128 GB.

The choice of Asus tablets in many offline and online stores is greater than the number of models presented in the ranking. Only current devices have entered it. It's not hard to see which brand focuses on transformers and tablets with detachable keyboards. This is easily explained by the fact that they often become the best alternative for those looking for something functional and compact, with a long working time for everyday tasks. I would like to believe that in the future, Asus will not abandon tablet production at all, and the choice of devices with modern parameters will become much wider.
