If you’ve read some of our ASUS reviews, you’ll know how we despise its clunky and bloated software. But thankfully, they are keen on providing the newest Android updates as much as they can. And with that said, we now have the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 (Z500M) Android 7.0 Nougat update.

It would have been nice of ASUS went straight directly to Android 7.1, but at least it is still Nougat. This new update will try to refresh the overall user experience. Furthermore, it looks like the new update will bring in new features that can be fully utilized on its large screen real estate.

With the Android 7.0 Nougat update, users can have easy access to the multi-windows function. This lets you use two applications at once, side by side. The new update also brings the new Unicode 9.0 emoji to ASUS’s ZenUI keyboard and bundled notifications switch.
