    Asus has produced a winner, June 28, 2014

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-WH 7-Inch Tablet (White) (Personal Computers)
    The Memo Pad 7 is a great budget when you compare the price with what you get for it. Firstly, this 2014 model of the Asus MeMo Pad 7 has some minor differences form its predecessors, specifically from the 2013 model. The first change is the back material used for the tablet, previous MeMo Pads used a smooth glossy type material but this model comes with a matte type yet smooth plastic material. The camera is also a step down with this model featuring a 2MP rear camera versus a 5MP camera in the previous model.

    The device is beautifully designed and is very ergonomic. The tablet feels very nice to hold and does not become uncomfortable after holding for extended periods of time. It is light weight but doesn’t feel cheap at all, it is just short of feeling like a premium build. The edges are smooth and the borders are slim and device has a very futuristic look to it. I do not like the faux silver trim around the outer edge of the device, these tend to rub off after a while from abrasion and constant touching leaving an ugly appearance. On an overall all basis, the device definitely looks like a tablet from 2014 and unlike some other tabs that have 2014 internal components but outdated designs. My only gripe is that I am not a fan of the coloured models. The white and black are nice opposites of the colour spectrum but black front and red or yellow backs models are just plain ugly to me.

    It runs and Intel Atom Bay Trail processor. This is something that got me really excited, and for good reason. Asus made a big win by doing this. If you hate slow devices then this is the tablet for you. This tablet is above all as the fastest I have ever owned and/or used. Some big negatives are is very poor camera quality and the lack of an ambient light sensor. The cameras are grainy in anything other than perfect lighting conditions, this is not a big deal as for most people their tablet is not intended to be their main camera. The lack of an ambient light sensor is a bit annoying though as I constantly have to adjust the screen brightness. This is something has been taken for granted in the past until you don’t have it.

    Android 4.4 Kitkat has introduced a lot of performance improvements and matches well with Asus on top Zen UI. The Zen UI this time around has been improved in the way it looks and feels. The Do It Later feature and What’s Next are nice additions, they do things that many other apps already do but it’s nice to have them included. I personally like the What’s Next feature to see my schedule at a glance.

    Asus Shady Business Practices
    I am a big fan of Asus as a technology company, as I do own many Asus products however I have noticed many subtle acts of deception on their part in the marketing of this tablet in particular.
    1. On their website, Asus lists the official specs for the camera as “2 MP Front Camera / 5 MP Rear Camera with Auto focus( 1080p Video Recording )”, however Amazon’s listing states “Rear : 2MP; Front : 0.3MP”. Seeing this I thought that Amazon probably made and error as I doubted and wished that Asus would not uses such a low resolution camera from what is considered standard today.
    2. Asus claims that the tablet comes with “over $270 worth of content and services”, namely eMusic, Zinio and ASUS WebStorage. I was expecting to open the box and see coupons for these, however none were included. So I checked the apps as I assumed that the offers would already be available, that turned out to not be so either. After some digging I realized that the offers for eMusic and Zinio are offers that are open to all users of the app and are in no way exclusive or part of any agreement with Asus. It was all a clever marketing trick to make customers think they are getting more than what they pay for.

    Overall the Asus ME176C is a great tablet and I would recommend it as a main tablet for anyone looking for a 7 inch portable tablet for daily use. It delivers on all grounds, hardware, software and performance.

    Best for under $150, April 9, 2015

    This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-WH 7-Inch Tablet (White) (Personal Computers)
    -Good Build Quality
    -Powerful for the Price
    -Nice Screen
    -Android 4.4 KitKat
    -Expandable Storage (MicroSD)
    -Intel chip might have compatibility issues
    -Screen resolution not exactly sharp
    -Might not get updated to 5.0
    -No ambient brightness sensor.

    Should you buy:Yes
    Actual Value: $150

    This is probably one of the best Android tablets that you can get for under $150. If you can find it for around $100, don’t hesitate to buy it.

    This is a beautiful, if somewhat generic, tablet, especially considering the price. It will not come close to the aesthetics of the iPad Mini, but they are also not even close in price. Realistically, it does come close to the look of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. However, I prefer the more minimalist design of the ASUS.

    This MeMO Pad 7 runs a slightly custom 4.4 Android KitKat. Anyone familiar with Samsung or any other device with Android will probably already familiar with this as well. Anyone from iOS may have a slight learning curve, but it is mostly simple. Icons are clearly laid out and most of the apps are helpful. There are a few apps that feel more like bloatware rather than helpful, but easy to ignore. The notification bar is easy to use and the quick controls can lock the screen, turn off bluetooth, adjust the brightness, and other small tools. But this being Android, you can also download other launchers and make it work based on your personal preference. I’ve personally tested Google Now Launcher and it works like a Nexus 7.

    The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 uses an Intel Atom™ Z3745 Quad-Core chip running at 1.86 GHz. Intel used to be great for laptops, but weak for mobile devices. However, this new generation of Intel processors are now powerful, energy efficient, and overall compatible with Android. Games like Dead Trigger 2, Asphalt 8, Clash of Clans, Modern Combat, among others will work smooth with slight lag on occasion when things get too intense, but never enough that it affects gameplay. Menu is also smooth and it might lag ONLY if you have too many things on the home screen or too many apps open at once.
    ASUS has a reputation of making quality products and this tablet is no exception. The tablet has no flex, cracks, or defects, as far as I can tell. The screen is fingerprint resistant and although it isn’t Gorilla Glass, it is tough enough. My 10 year old brother has used it for 2 months, which is technically 6 months for typical people. It still has no damage to it and works. The screens resolution isn’t Retina screen sharp, but there is no tablet for the price that is that sharp. However the quality of the screen is amazingly good and as long as the tablet isn’t too close, the image is good.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 as well as the Kindle Fire HD 7 are probably the biggest competition to this ASUS tablet. However, there are reasons to still go with the ASUS over the other 2. First and foremost, the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 has an MSRP of $20 more than the ASUS as well as having a worse screen than the ASUS (Same Resolution, but the Samsung has a TFT display while the ASUS has a IPS display). Even though the Samsung has more RAM, the software that Samsung likes to put eventually holds it back. The Kindle Fire HD 7 is an excellent tablet. However, it is only worth it if you are heavily invested in the Amazon Ecosystem. Otherwise, the lack of customization and limited apps might hold you back.

    This tablet is good. Really good. Probably not good enough to convert Apple customers, but close. There are indeed many tablets that are the same price as this ASUS MeMO Pad 7. But If you factor in the quality, the price, the performance, and the looks, it really is one great tablet and the best for the money.

    This review is from: ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX-A1-WH 7-Inch Tablet (White) (Personal Computers)
    I searched a long time for the right tablet, asked a lot of questions. I am primarily a book reader, which meant I needed a device that could run Moon+ Reader Pro, but also Netflix and, with any luck, a game I was interested in playing.

    The version of KitKat the unit ships with didn’t allow moving apps to an external SD card, but a system update within the first several days of owning the tablet solved that problem. I hadn’t anticipated not being able to set the default import folder in Moon+ to the external card, which is a KitKat limitation still and probably forever. The workaround there is to navigate to the card whenever I want to import books to the tablet. Eventually I’ll incorporate some kind of cloud storage and avoid that problem altogether.

    The unit boots quickly, browsing and apps also run well, I’m very pleased with the speed. The display is crisp and bright and Netflix streaming plays very well over my home wifi signal, without stuttering or being out of sync. Battery life averages about 8 hours and that’s with a live wallpaper running. The slot for the charger is on a slight angle, as others have remarked, so I’m careful when inserting the connector. I’ve played with the camera, but it wasn’t a factor in my decision to purchase.

    KitKat has a lot to recommend it and I’ve enjoyed finding ways to customize it. Especially helpful is the ability to disable so many of the apps that are useless to me without having to root the unit.

    The unit I bought is one of those returned by a previous customer and re-sold by Amazon at a slightly lower price. There’s always a concern with quality in those situations, but the unit was perfect. So far, so good. I’m really pleased with this tablet.
