Reviews for the Asus Fonepad ME372CG

85% Review Asus Fonepad 7 ME372CG Tablet | Notebookcheck
Telephone tablet. The name says it all: On the outside, the Asus Fonepad 7 is an Android-based 7-inch tablet, but its inner parts contain a full-blown telephone module. As our review shows, the mid-class device's performance makes a good name for it too.

PowerVR SGX544MP2: OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible with 8 pixel and 4 vertex shaders

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z2560: SoC with an integrated dual-core Atom based CPU clocked at 0.9 - 1.6 (short bursts), a 400 MHz PowerVR SGX 544MP2 graphics card, and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


7.0":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.328 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems.

Asus reviews


85.67%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
