With its Memo Pad 8 ME581CL Tablet, Asus presents a well-rounded overall package for about $390. The compact, stable 8-inch tablet certainly has much to offer. The excellent monitor impressed us with up-to-date resolution, high strength, strong viewing angles, and a good color display. Thanks to precision and good software, the service has an intuitive effect. Apart from LTE and fast ac-WLAN, NFC, Miracast and DLNA offer a noticeable added value in daily use. Additionally, the test machine delivered more than satisfactory performance in each situation and has excess capability for handling upcoming apps as well. However, the battery cannot be swapped out, though it does offer sufficient capacity to last for one day without external power. Those for whom the provided 10 GB of internal storage space (net) is not enough can simply make use of a microSD card. There are also flaws - the disappointing camera modules and underwhelming sound - but these remain within acceptable limits.
Users who are looking for an 8-inch tablet with a high mobility factor and a very flexible range of applications thanks to a good display and potent SoC will therefore hit pay dirt with the successful Asus Memo Pad 8.
