In spite of its solid design and high-capacity memory, the screen as well as the performance of the Memo Pad 7 is not outstanding enough compared to other models at the same price.

Design

The "narrowness" in the tablet segment with high prices has made Asus decide on a new direction with the 7-inch Memo Pad model at just $150. This is on a par in terms of prices with many un-branded Chinese models as well as some Vietnamese-brand models. To get a cheaper price, Asus had to sacrifice a lot of specifications and turn to students as well as the office employees who only have simple needs such as surfing the web or reading e-books.

The Memo Pad 7 is a cheap but quite attractive tablet.

The Asus Memo Pad 7 is equipped with a 7-inch screen with the resolution of 1,024x600 pixels, a single core processor of 1 GHz, Mali-400 graphics processor, 1 GB RAM, internal memory of 8 GB, supporting microSD card slot which can be expanded up to 64 GB. The device’s front camera has only 1 megapixel resolution. The product supports Wi-Fi connectivity, A-GPS positioning (over cellular).

The cheap Asus device has a quite similar design with the Nexus 7, which was produced by Asus itself in collaboration with Google. The design can be said to be quite nice even with the use of plastic materials. On the back there is a intertwined-textured pattern with an Asus logo. This surface helps make sure that the machine gets rid of dirt and smudges even when your hand is sweating.

Meanwhile, the device’s front is very glossy and attracts fingerprint smudges, so it needs a cover on the display right after you buy it in the store. The display edges are a little narrower at the sides of the device, but they are still long enough to press your thumb against to hold it with one hand without touching the screen. The Memo Pad 7 does not use any extra hardware keys on the front, but instead there is a series of touch-sensitive keys like on the original Android OS.

If compared to the Acer Iconia B1 rival, the MemoPad’s length is equivalent to about 196.2 mm but it is a little narrower with the width of 119.2 mm and thinner with the thickness of 11.2 mm. However, in terms of weight, the Memo Pad weighs 358 grams, about 10% heavier than the opponent.

Asus just included the necessary physical keys, such as the power button and volume rocker at the left. This creates a bit of inconvenience for the majority of right-handed people as they have to reach the left hand while holding on to the machine to be able to manipulate. it

Asus’s cheap tablet only has a microUSB connector and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom and on the side. At the rear there is the speaker with a metal mesh slightly skewed to the left.

The nice design and brand can be seen as two of the best features of the Memo Pad 7 tablet at the range of $150 models. The products have a variety of colors with three versions to choose from, which are black, white and pink.
