ASUS MeMO Pad 7 – Finally, a budget tablet with no Compromises! [Review]
31 July 2014
Summary: It’s hard to believe that a sub $150 tablet can be this good – but it’s true. This is a budget tablet that doesn’t feel like it’s cheap. Sure, it doesn’t feel quite like a premium tablet – it can’t compete with the likes of an iPad Mini, but it knocks the socks off of the budget Android tablets we’re used to seeing and instead feels more like a mid-range tablet.
Pros: No real compromises yet priced for a budget, top notch performance, Competitively priced, great build quality, fun color choices, packs in both a front facing and rear facing cameras which are pretty good, nice selection of accessories are available for it – including the MagSmart Cover, nice soft touch back finish, battery life is healthy at about 9 hours
Cons: Wish the display was a bit brighter – but hard to complain at this price point
Summary: Fresh components. The Memo Pad HD 7 ME176C is the successor of the Memo Pad HD 7. Asus equipped the new version of its 7-inch tablet for 200 Euros (~$269) with a more powerful quad-core SoC as well as the latest Android version. Our review shows if the fine-tuning was successful.
Pros: Low price, Good display, 11 GB free storage, Android 4.4.2, Convenient on-screen keyboard, High performance, Low temperatures, Long battery runtimes, The Asus Memo Pad HD 7 ME176C is inexpensive, fast and offers a lot of free storage in the 16 GB configuration.
Cons: Non-removable battery, Poor camera modules, No 2G/3G/LTE, Only 1 GB RAM, A better camera module and a flash, especially when you consider the convenient camera settings.
Summary: The sleek styling of the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX combined with its zippy 1.33-GHz Intel Atom Baytrail processor makes this slate a steal at $149. While the battery life does not live up to last year's model, it's a fine trade-off for the increased performance. Those looking for even more speed and stylus input should take a look at the EVGA Tegra Note 7 tablet, but it's a more expensive $189 and doesn't last as long on a charge.
Pros: Thin and light, Available in multiple colors, Sharp screen, Slick ZenUI, Strong overall performance
