ASUS MeMOPad HD 7-Inch 16 GB Tablet, Blue (ME173X-A1-BL)
For the price it’s fantastic
So, I’ve been putting off a new tablet purchase for quite awhile. I’ve been suffering with an Acer Iconia Tab A100 for awhile now, and while it was nice when it came out it simply doesn’t cut it anymore. But I am cheap. A year ago, had someone said that I would be able to get a tablet with a quad core 1.2 GHz processor, 16GB internal storage, Cameras, GPS, and micro SD slot with a gorgeous 1280×800 IPS screen, and that it would be running Android 4.2.1 Jellybean – all for $150 – I wouldn’t have believed them. I had known for awhile that at some point prices would come down enough and hardware and software would catch up, and was waiting for the right moment. It came today.
Most of the reviews I’ve read on this tablet have essentially said that it’s a solid tablet functionally, but that its construction is weak and it feels cheap. Honestly, I don’t see it. While it doesn’t have the same ultra-solid feel that the high-end (expensive) tablets have, it doesn’t in the least feel…
Very nice tablet for the price. Beautiful display. MicroSD for additional storage
Great for 150, and a few things better than the original Nexus 7
I got my MeMo hd 7 pad yesterday and the boxing was similar the original Nexus 7. Once I open it, I noticed it was lighter, but the screen does look smaller due to the larger bezel. But I am sure that the screens are the same size as I measured it to be 7 inches. I also noticed that the glass on the MeMo attracts smugges easily more than the Nexus.
Now on to why its a 5 star rating:
-It took about 1 – 2 minutes to set up
-It updated to a newer version of andriod immediately
-I spent 5 hours installing games and apps from google play store and amazon app store and the battery life was still at 57%
-It is light, so very easy to hold on your hands for long durations
-Gaming like captain America and Iron man was great, no hick ups
-Wifi was fast
-Screen is beautiful, and it does not pulses/flickers like the Nexus screen
-No more dongle to read usb device as I can insert a micro sd card on the side
-some useful apps from asus, like…
- 7-Inch Display
- Quad Core 1.2 GHz
- 16 GB Flash Memory, 1 GB RAM Memory
- 10-hour battery life, .67 pounds
