Summary: Some, like Laptop Magazine, say that it can bog things down a bit, but PCMag.com says that the Asus Android skin is actually one of the better and more useful ones, and allows for some practical multitasking. Build quality doesn't draw a lot of compliments. Lots of reviewers complain about the placement of the volume and power buttons on the rear of the tablet, making them a pain to locate.
Pros: Great value, Good performance, Memory expansion slot
Cons: Other, pricier tablets perform better, Battery life could be better, Controls on back panel hard to use
Summary: To sum it up, the HD 7 is not aimed at heavy users and gamers but at casual users who just want a very capable tablet that can be used to browse social networks, take decent photos, read e-books on the go, watch movies, and play less graphic-intensive apps. With its price tag starting at Php6,995 for the 8GB and Php8,995 for the 16GB, the ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 is a great offering for those who are in a budget for a 7-inch slate.
Excerpt: Don’t let its cheap plastic build fool you: While the $150 MeMo Pad HD 7 may look chintzy and toyish, this tablet offers big performance and a great feature set at an extremely attractive price point. For anyone interested in casual web browsing, movie watching, and reading, it may even be one of the best 7-inch tablets available. At 0.7 pounds, the MeMO Pad weights about the same as the new Nexus 7 (also made by Asus).
Pros: A lot of tablet for very little money. Battery lasts up to 10 hours. 16GB of internal storage expandable to 32GB via micro SD card. Comes with Android customizations that are actually useful.
Cons: Dull, uninspired design. Wi-Fi only. Plastic back feels cheap and attracts fingerprints. Disappointing camera, particularly in low-lighting.
Summary: With its rear camera, expandable storage and cheaper price, the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 makes a few key improvements on the already excellent Nexus 7 tablet. If you're looking for a cheap tablet that will tackle most tasks well, this is the one to go for.
Cons: Rear plastic might be a little brittle; No 3G or 4G model;.
