Pros: 4 gigs of ram make this one of the best tablets out there! Over the years I have learned a good rule of thumb for the "average tablet user": the order of importance for specs. 1 is ram, 2 is CPU, 3 is internal memory, 4 is screen, 5 is sound. this tablet outperforms expectations for mid priced tablets. my son was playing Minecraft PE and had 32 additional apps running in background and only 65% of ram was used. this tablet is as future proof as you are likely to get at a mid-range price point. as for bloatware, what can't be uninstalled can be deactivated. Deactivated means it doesn't use resources other than storage. Since you have 64 gigs of storage that is essentially a non issue.
Cons: USB-c cables are pricey (~$8) to replace. also, thin and light = fragile. so get a case and screen protector. also, because there's been high demand and production issues recently, don't count on insurance to fix even simple things like cracked screens. (I sent mine in for a cracked screen and they ended up sending a check for original price a month and a half later.)
Other Thoughts: I've had 2 of these tablets and haven't experienced the issues others have reported. Also not all chargers are created equal so if you have a problem charging the battery switch chargers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: excellent tablet for the price. doesn't start crashing/slowing/hanging until you have 20+ apps running. Handles videos well. Asus keeps it updated pretty well. after a year of heavy use battery life is about 4 hrs watching videos and 20~ apps active.
Cons: the sd slot caused it to overheat when sd card was inserted. it took some effort to get sd card to work, but was able to do it. cheap plastic back will chip/crack if dropped.
Other Thoughts: bought this for my 4 year old autistic son.READ FULL REVIEW
