ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176C 16GB Review
ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176C is a notepad of 16GB capacity similar to original Nexus 7, though its housing is slightly larger with hardware inside being quite different. The device is powered by Intel Bay Trail Atom processor and comes in yellow, black, red, white or blue.
ASUS is trying to appeal to every person with MeMO Pad 7, which is just 9.6mm in thickness, weighing only 295 grams. As such, the pad is not bulky, fitting well in a hand of average size and may not occupy excessive room within the backpack, purse or hand bag.
The gadget is available in protective sleeve which highlights all main tablet-characteristics. ASUS MeMO Pad 7 possesses In-Plane-Switching (IPS) display, having screen resolution of 1280x800. The 64-bit quad-core, Intel Atom Z3745 SoC handles proceeding tasks with 1.33GHz base clock and can hit 1.86GHz in Turbo mode. This processor has been paired with RAM memory of 1GB plus onboard storage of 16GB. It is vital noting that Intel has migrated from Bay Trail’s PowerVR graphics and onto their individual Intel High Definition Graphics solution. It implies that performance of graphics gets improved and Bay Trail tablets are up to task, when practicing workloads for GPGPU or gaming.
As well, USB charging cable plus power adapter are included in the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 pack. Tablets do not require huge accessory kit, which should not shock anyone. The screen of this notepad measures 7 inches and for obvious reasons, this device lacks an actual keyboard, replacing it with Virtual QWERTY keyboard exhibiting SWYPE technology. The 2MP front-facing camera is found along top bezel and not centered, which is immaterial on a handheld gadget, since the user may simply twist it.
MeMO Pad 7 has a remote speaker found along bottom edge of tablet’s back. It performs fairly decently for videos as well as music. To its back, the tablet carries smooth plastic back which offers a slight hint of softness. A micro-USB port is located along top edge, important for syncing and charging. Audio jack of 3.5mm and microphone hole are found off the side. Users are bound to easily get used to the fact of having USB charging port situated on the tablet’s top.
ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176C has volume rocker button at the right side’s up-top, with the power button being found below. This odd configuration does take a while to master, as it is opposite of what was found on original Nexus 7 plus Gen 2 Nexus 7. A rear-facing 5MP camera is found on tablet’s back and no camera flash is available.
A card slot for microSD memory card is located to the left of this notepad, which presents 16GB worth of internal storage. Even then the OS and preloaded apps take up 5GB storage space. This then leaves users with around 11GB of storage space for use. It is possible expanding storage to 48GB.
