0. phoneArena posted on 22 Apr 2013, 04:27

The Google Nexus 7 has been tearing up the scene for close to the better portion of the last year now, but as some of us sometimes forget, it’s an Asus manufactured tablet. Riding high on the success, Asus is hoping to emulate the same with its latest budget oriented 7-inch tablet in the Asus MeMO Pad, however, the Nexus 7 has raised the benchmark in the space...

Disappointing, but not surprising.

"the display is downright abysmal. Specifically, it features a 7-inch 1024 x 600 LCD display that’s just painful to look at!"

My 14 inch laptop on windows 7 has only 1366 X768 and im damn sure the pixel density is a hell lot lower. But that being said, it does seem the colors and viewing angle is bad.

Your laptop has ~112 PPI density, and this tablet has ~170. But it's also much larger, which, although not the highest res (although more than 720P HD), makes things easier to read. The smaller screens get, the fuzzier text becomes, and the higher the definition required to read it becomes. A 14" screen has 3X or so the area of a 7" screen, making finer text easier to read. Of course, with the 7" tablet screen you can always zoom in, but that means you have to zoom in, where as with a higher def tablet, like the Nexus 7, you don't.

Have you looked at a newspaper recently? Ok, bad example, because neither have I, but if you did, you'd notice how crummy text and especially pictures look up close...yet everything is perfectly legible.

This tab sucks. Its not eve on par with the other 7inch tabs like the nexus 7 and galaxy tab 2 7.0.Im glad that i bought the Galaxy tab 2 7.0 and im completely happy.
Buy a nexus 7 or a tab 2 instead.
