Asus Memo Pad 8 review

 

Asus successfully turns cheap into sleek with the MeMo Pad 8. Running Asus' new Zen user-interface, which rocks a trendy flat design and a myriad of customization options, the 8-inch Android slate is one of the slimmest and most lightweight in its...

The Asus Memo Pad 8 is a slim and lightweight slate with a colorful screen and slick user-interface. Starting at $199, it packs enough useful preloaded apps to feel like a deal.

Performance is slow if many apps are open in the background, and touchscreen response lags after being woken up.

The Asus MeMo Pad 8 is an affordable slate with tons of features, but if performance is king, faster options can be had for only $30 more.

Asus MeMo Pad 8 ( white)

 

Spec-wise, the MeMo Pad 8 is a poor contender in the budget tablet race, but its software features give it an edge on the competition. The preloaded Asus suite of apps include calibration software and an audio-enhancement app, in addition to two free...

The Asus Memo Pad 8 is pretty in pink set to be easy on the pocket, even if it won't actually fit in your pocket.

Asus Memo Pad 8 ME581CL-1B027A Tablet Review

 

New memorandum? Asus wants to make a statement and elevates its 8-inch tablet from the Memo Pad series to the status quo of the class. The Memo Pad 8 ME581Cl represents the top model of this group; its price sits just above $355. It includes an Intel...

stable chassis with Gorilla Glass 3 display protection, ergonomic feel, storage is easily expandable with microSD, LTE, NFC, DLNA & Miracast, very bright display, high viewing angle stability, good color rendition, long battery life

camera modules are disappointing, overly treble sound, batteries cannot be swapped out

With its Memo Pad 8 ME581CL Tablet, Asus presents a well-rounded overall package for about $390. The compact, stable 8-inch tablet certainly has much to offer. The excellent monitor impressed us with up-to-date resolution, high strength, strong viewing...

ASUS MeMO Pad 8 (ME581CL) - Compact and Speedy Intel Tablet

 

ASUS is taking the 8-inch tablet segment seriously with its MeMO Pad 8, which is powered by the latest Intel Atom 64-bit "Moorefield" processor and Android 4.4 KitKat. With the entry of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, is...

Decent build quality ; Good handling ; Smooth navigation ; 4G LTE support ; Affordable

Poor battery life ; Dual-App feature needs polish ; Speaker placement could hinder output ; Imaging quality could be better

While the MeMO Pad 8 is one of the strongest tablet offerings we've seen from ASUS so far, it couldn't quite match up against its rivals, namely the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact which offer slimmer, lighter and better built form...

Asus has come up with a neat tablet here, but anyone with an eye on the MeMO Pad 8 might do well to wait just a little while longer to see what Google pulls out of the bag with its new Nexus.

Asus MeMO Pad 8 Android tablet review

 

The is an Android tablet with an 8 inch display, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, and a .

In fact, knowing that Asus offers a 7 inch model for $50 cheaper, I find myself kind of wanting to recommend that model even though I haven’t had a chance to test it myself. If the MeMO Pad 7 ME176C offers the same level of performance as the MeMO Pad...

Asus MeMO Pad 8 Android tablet

 

Asus packs the hardware of a powerful tablet into an 8in, sub-$350 bargain

Great build quality ; Long-lasting battery life ; Miracast

No NFC ; No 3G

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...

Asus MeMo Pad 8

 

If you want an affordable 8in tablet then this is worth a look – but there are too many flaws in its performance for us to really recommend it

Cheap 8in tablet ; Good Android implementation ; Well-built ; Reasonably fast

Can be slow upon waking ; Colour palette poor ; Jerky video performance

There’s no hiding our disappointment with the MeMo Pad 8. We expected better from a brand that’s proven itself in the tablet market. And with a price that matches that of the Google Nexus 7, it makes for a hard recommendation.
