Reviews for the Asus Memo Pad 8 ME180A-1A016A

80% Asus Memo Pad 8 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Asus MemoPad 8 is a little cheaper than the Asus-built Google Nexus 7, but each tablet has its benefits. The Nexus 7 has a higher screen resolution, more powerful components and the latest version of Android, while the MemoPad 8 has a physically bigger screen, microSD card expansion and much better battery life. If you're looking to play games and don't mind occasionally managing your apps to free up space, the Nexus 7 is still a fantastic buy, but if you simply want a tablet for watching videos and general use, the MemoPad 8 is a great alternative.

The Asus MeMO Pad 8 isn’t just another me-too Android tablet. Unique software additives and Asus’ sense of evolving style give it a well defined personality. For its size it packs a hearty hardware punch, and on value it is only surpassed by one other tablet: the Asus-made Nexus 7.

Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
