Asus MeMO Pad Review

Asus MeMO Pad 4

Hardly a shocker, there’s only a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera that we recommend for video chatting only, since its still image quality is grainy and lacking any sharpness to make you look somewhat presentable on camera. Aside from that, there’s nothing much else to mention about it.


With the stock experience it’s no surprise to find the Google Play Music app on board with this one. By now, we’re familiar with the presentation, but with the audio quality, it’s decent enough to endure at the loudest setting – well, it can sound a little unpleasant due to some of its sharpness.

In this day and age, most tablets are more than ideal for watching videos and movies. However, that’s not the case here, seeing that the display quality is absolutely the most distracting part about it. With its bland looks and sometimes choppy performance, it doesn’t necessarily help to keep our eyes affixed to it.

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.
