0. phoneArena 04 Feb 2013, 16:39 posted on

Introduced after CES, the 7 inch ASUS MeMo Pad is chock full of features for $149.99 and to show them all off, the manufacturer has put together a video that shows off the Android 4.1 flavored device; unlike many of the tablets that come out of the ASUS camp, the MeMo Pad cannot transform into a laptop with an optional QWERTY dock...

Sadly, after the bug riddled ICS release for my ASUS TF101 (and no fix in sight), the horrible sound on the new series thanks to the MONO speaker ("master" my ass), including the Infinity...

Im staying away from ASUS products, at least when it comes to phones/tablets...

I love my TF101 and dock, but ONLY with the 3rd party ROM's from, XDA, the ICS release was absolute TRASH with many bugs listed left and right and entire 50 page forum topic's on the ASUS web forum deleted w/o a valid reason...

Screw you ASUS

Also, in a new development, ALL downloads for ROM's/Software have gone POOF from the ASUS website for the TF101.

On PA, many people said "Oh Asus is great, Asus is the best in tablet, why other OEMs cannot update as quick as Asus, blah blah blah" without buying just one (in my country we call that's keyboard hero).

I had 3 transformers, tf101, tf201 and tf 701t.
The first one is the tab I felt satisfied the most, that's why I could buy other two Asus tablets(of course due to the keyboard too). When Asus updated my tf101 to ICS, OMFG I couldn't play hd video, SODs and crashes happened so often. Of course beside that it had cracking issue and light bleeding at the beginning, but it's still ok until ICS update

So I bought the successor tf201. And then I realized that except the thin light body and brighter screen, everything else is the same or worse. The codec for watching videos still poor and alot of problems, screen was loosing and light bleeding, performance was lag and I couldn't believe that it had the quad core CPU. Wifi was like s**t and no GPS and the skew mono speaker was the pain in the ass.

I came back to my tf101 (it was better that time with custom Rom and guevor kernel). When Asus released tf70t after a long time introducing, I thought Asus knew thier flop with tf201 and did better, so I bought the it. But omg the performance was still terrible, even worse when playing 3d games and lag was very frequently. Compared to tf201, this tab was better in screen resolution, GPS and wifi (but still s**t thank to the cheap Azura wifi chip instead of Broadcom). Even after updating few times, i felt nothing different (maybe Asus tried to prove it's the fastest in updating but forgot to bring the true quality of an update) If you go to xda, you can see the huge number of complaints, as a result of a terrible tablet.

Sadly the updates on my tf700t are not much better but hardware wise it's very nice.

They should fix all of their updates. The 4.1 screwed up my TF300
