Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10 Review


Setting it to automatic brightness and lightly using the tablet mostly for surfing the web and reading emails, we’re able to get at least 1.5 days of usage from a full battery charge. Although it’s not ground breaking per se, it’s ample enough to get us through most working days without the fear of it being depleted.


In all fairness, the Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10 is a wonderful option if you’re on a tight budget for a 10” tablet; It has enough of a well-rounded performance to propel it over other comparable models, and the $300 price point that’s attached to it is absolutely dreamy for something that’s targeting the full-sized tablet segment of the market, which is undeniably competitive in many aspects. Frankly speaking, the MeMO Pad Smart 10 might not be blessed with the same notoriety as some of the other renowned models that Asus is known to concoct, but heck, it’s undoubtedly a good option for consumers who don’t want to shell out a whole lot on a very GOOD performing tablet.

Software version of the review unit:
Android Version: 4.1.1
Build Number: JRO03C
Kernel Version: 3.1.10-00007

It' like a Nexus 7, but with 10 inch screen and rear camera. Good entry level 10'' tablet IMHO!

While the Nexus 10 definitely beats the Memo Pad 10. I rather have the additional storage space with the microSD slot. Besides I don't need a top of the line tablet like the Nexus. The Memo 10 will do me just fine.

If you want a sleek, useable tablet that is simple to use with some extras you won't find on other tablets above this price range, this is it! No, it doesn't have the highest resolution screen, but it is more than adequate, especially for a first time tablet purchase. You can't go wrong.
