When we heard that Asus was incorporating Intel's robust Atom Z3745 processor into its entry-level Memo Pad 7 droid, it was hard not to get excited. After all, it's the same processor that can power full-fledged Windows tablets, and at a competitive price it has the potential to provide unparalleled power for this market segment.

In practice the Asus Memo Pad 7 ME176C also provided performance far higher than most other entry-level compact tablets. Yet, either due imperfect software or the low amount of RAM compared the interface did become choppy at times (particularly in the web browser), so the benefit isn't as big as it could have been.

The problems don't end there, however. Our experience with the 5MP camera left much to be desired. Granted, tablet cameras aren't usually the most capable to begin with, but the ME176Cs shooter left a bitter taste in our mouth, largely due to its inconsistency. Many shots were just plain unusable, with wildly varying exposure, contrast, and colors, while video recording oddly used only a quadrant of the sensor. This resulted in low resolved detail for 1080p videos alongside a large amount of geometric distortion.

A stylish tablet at a reasonable price with a sharp and bright screen

from TrustedReviews

This is a very smart tablet, that much is obvious. If you're in the market for a small Android tablet then you should have it on your shortlist. It's a clear step up from the the Nexus 7. The only caveat is whether you're better off with an 8-inch tablet, though that will mean spending more still.

Entry-level price for a generally quite capable tablet

from TechSpot

For most use cases, the Asus MeMO Pad 7 is a good tablet: nothing amazing, nothing spectacular, just a stock standard tablet that’s good enough for its $150 price point. I was most impressed by the tablet’s display, which may only have a resolution of 1280 x 800, but packs decent color quality that can be adjusted to your liking through Asus’ Splendid application. We’re not quite at the stage where 1080p displays have transitioned to sub-$200 devices, so at this price there’s really nothing to complain about...

For most use cases, the Asus MeMO Pad 7 is a good tablet: nothing amazing, nothing spectacular, just a stock standard tablet that’s good enough for its $150 price point. I was most impressed by the tablet’s display, which may only have a resolution of 1280 x 800, but packs decent color quality that can be adjusted to your liking through Asus’ Splendid application. We’re not quite at the stage where 1080p displays have transitioned to sub-$200 devices, so at this price there’s really nothing to complain about.

Many other aspects of the tablet are serviceable, without blowing me away. The design is bland yet reasonably ergonomic, and its relatively light weight makes it a decent option if you want something portable to read books on. There was no aspect of the skinned-Android software that was particularly bad, though at the same time I wonder why Asus didn’t opt for stock Android when most of the extra features are found in standalone applications.

Performance makes or breaks an entry-level tablet. The Intel Atom Z3745 SoC is interesting in that it actually benchmarks quite well for a budget chip, and when conditions are right, the MeMO Pad 7 is as smooth to use as more expensive products. Unfortunately, though, stability lets it down: the tablet refuses to run some apps and games, while others will crash or stutter at seemingly random times.

Insanely great performance with nice design at an excellent value

from TabletPCReview

It’s rare that I can give a relatively unqualified recommendation for something, but this is one of those times. Simply put, the Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 is the best budget tablet I’ve tested. For $150, you get a tablet that has few, if any, noticeable compromises. It’s fast as hell, the screen is beautiful, the design is nice, and it’s even got a decent amount of base memory — although the availability of a microSD card slot makes that more a perk than a necessity...

Anyone who wants a tablet that’s basic and not too costly, but can still do whatever you want, would be well advised to look at the MeMO Pad 7.

The new version of the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 is once again a convenient package. Even though the Memo Pad HD 7 ME176C only costs around 200 Euros, it offers more than enough performance for current apps and games under Android 4.4.2 thanks to its powerful quad-core SoC Intel Atom Z3745. The new Memo Pad HD 7 is therefore a good choice if you are looking for an inexpensive secondary device with Android or an inexpensive entry into the world of tablets – it does not matter if you choose the 8 GB version or our review configuration with 16 GB storage. Asus once again saved some money in regard to the memory – it might take a bit longer to load apps and games with just 1 GB RAM. Another drawback is the mediocre picture quality of the integrated camera modules.

A sturdy and reliable little tablet with good stamina

from TrustedReviews

The new Asus Memo Pad 7 is clearly a product of the strong relationship between Intel and Asus, because its main improvement is in using the powerful 64-bit Intel Atom Z3745 processor. However, what the tablet really needed to stay ahead of the game was not more power, but more pixels.

A 1080p version of this tablet would have been a killer deal, even if it cost a bit more. In its current form it’s still a good deal, and would make a good first tablet for the kids. But the rest of you would be better off spending that bit more on the Nexus 7...

Legit Review

An overall solid tablet that one can easily adjust to using quickly

from Legit Review

The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176C is a pretty decent tablet. The 7-inch IPS LCD Display was found to be crisp with excellent viewing angles. The ASUS ZenUI over Android 4.4 KitKat was slick and best of all the performance was solid. The Intel Atom Z3745 Bay Trail processor is very powerful and could easily handle all the tasks that we threw at this Android tablet. We knew that the MemoPad 7 ME176C would give the Nexus 7 (2013) a run for the money and it easily outperformed the tablet in all the benchmark apps with the exception of one graphics test. It looks like Intel really does have a viable processor now that can take on Qualcomm, ARM and others in the mobile space...

The ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176C is a solid tablet with the exception of the 802.1b/g/n 2.4GHz wireless card that is uses. For the price it is hard to beat, but we’ll be sticking with the Google Nexus 7 (2013) as our daily driver. It might lose in the performance benchmarks and be a year old, but web pages and video content load noticeably faster. Maybe we are putting too much weight on the wireless performance, but why skimp on something so heavily used?

A budget tablet with no Compromises

from Chip Chick

It’s hard to believe that a sub $150 tablet can be this good – but it’s true. This is a budget tablet that doesn’t feel like it’s cheap. Sure, it doesn’t feel quite like a premium tablet – it can’t compete with the likes of an iPad Mini, but it knocks the socks off of the budget Android tablets we’re used to seeing and instead feels more like a mid-range tablet...

It’s hard to believe that a sub $150 tablet can be this good – but it’s true. This is a budget tablet that doesn’t feel like it’s cheap. Sure, it doesn’t feel quite like a premium tablet – it can’t compete with the likes of an iPad Mini, but it knocks the socks off of the budget Android tablets we’re used to seeing and instead feels more like a mid-range tablet.

Overall, there have been no real sacrifices made here – you’re getting both a front facing and rear facing camera, solid build quality, a pretty good display, and thanks to Intel’s Bay Trail Atom processor – you’re getting incredible performance too. Overall, the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 (ME176C) offers a super solid value for back to school and it is getting us excited for the other crop of Intel Atom powered devices that are coming out.

We're really impressed with the Asus Memo Pad 7. In addition to a good-looking design and sturdy build, it also boasts hardware that rivals tablets with much higher price tags. A higher-resolution screen and front-facing speakers would add even more appeal, but if you're looking for a budget tablet and have been considering the Tesco Hudl, Kindle Fire HD or even the Nexus 7, it's worth investigating the Asus Memo Pad 7, too.

The older MeMO Pad HD 7 was one among the first crop of relatively good quality, sub-$200 Android tablets. The new MeMO Pad 7, which is in fact as high-definition as its predecessor, doesn't change much from the original formula. It comes in a more compact package and with a promising Intel processor, but the display can't hold a candle to full-HD panels like the one found on the Nexus 7. Still, at $150, the MeMO Pad 7 is a solid deal and totally capable of performing most of the tasks people demand of a small-screen tablet.
