Pros: Good battery life, made from quality materials, quality screen that's about it the bloat software that you cannot uninstall cripples this tablet I bought this tablet to replace my slowing 6 year old ASUS NEXUS this one is no faster.
Maybe some hacker can figure out how to remove the bloatware/crippleware then have a useful tablet.
Cons: Tablet is over loaded with so many default applications that run all the time nothing is life to run other basic programs.
NOT sure why manufactures pack these devices full of apps owners never use, when you boot it up you have to wait at least 5 minutes for the thing to load all the bloatware the tablet is basically unresponsive while its loading the bloat your never going to use, you cant uninstall the apps your never going to use to free up memory once booted up and responsive your left
with a whopping 149.3MB memory before starting up the app you want to use.
Overall Review: Start Twitter then set the tablet down walk away for 5 minutes come back and it might be ready to read Tweets.
Most the CPU power is wasted running processes you do not even use.
I cannot recommend this tablet at any price its a shame a big name mfg like ASUS would sell bloatware piece of **** I am embarrassed for them.
Pros: picked up one for for my mom to learn how to use a tablet on next year i plan to get her a really nice one but i ended up liking it so much i got another one for around the house. quick'ish good price and the battery is treaty good about 2 hours straight of YouTube maybe 3 BUT......
Cons: the first one i got, i let it do its own thing agreed to the updates then it was done, really done. Super slow, would get really hot, drain the battery fast like 3 hours standby not doing any thing, then the random shutdowns started until one day if just did not turn back on. sent it back to newegg (super fast, not an issue easy as it could be thank you newegg) got the new one back did the updates and payed attention this time went to lollipop just fine, then did the google play serves update and back to horrible all over again. so long storie short, update to lollipop do 3 factory rests back to back. then settings security / tick unknown sources to on agree with the window then go to play store. Download google play services info hit apk mirror, hit crome, just once. find the newest stable one but the last three digits need to be right 270 which stands for, 2 means android 5.0+, 7 means x86 CPU, and 0 means generic screen. google is loading 470 which is android 5.0 but it even says if you read it to try 2 if having problems. i drooped an egg for having to do all this but it still a vary good product even for all the work i had to do finding the issue and i do recommend i just hope this helps some one.
Overall Review: this is for newegg and nothing to do with the product. Newegg please stop using ontrac for delivery they held my package for a week because they don't have enough delivery in my area for it to be worth it to them. i had to contact them 3 times over 4 days and they even told me it would be here at the end of one of those days that it did not. i know it sound like not a big deal but this happen every time i get a package though them. even if you gave the option of who would be handling at the point of perchance, please its super annoying
Pros: -Easy to use, especially if you're familiar with the Android OS
-Generally, it just works. It has its moments, see below
Cons: -Comes with bloatware that you cannot completely remove, but to my understanding this is true for all tablets?
-If you don't use CleanMaster (a cleaning utility that comes with the tablet's OS) regularly, you will notice the RAM gets eaten quickly, and certain apps like to run in the background constantly, eating up your tablet's RAM as well as battery life.
-Takes forever to charge if you plug it into a usb port on a pc. Kind of to be expected though.
Overall Review: -I would buy this tablet all over again if given the choices I was given when it was purchased. It's a good tablet, it's not as powerful as some of the more expensive ones, but if you're like me you are looking for something that doesn't need to be rooted to do more than read books ;)
An interesting note: The most taxing game I've played on this tablet has turned out to be Hearthstone. I have to run Cleanmaster to boost my RAM as well as hibernate background apps to get it to play without too much interface lag.
More thoughts: There are many cheaper tablets supposedly better but by brands you've never heard of. I've worked in retail long enough to tell you just because something costs less, doesn't mean it's more value. Value should mean the quality of product in relation to its price, not just the price alone.
Don't let the bloatware scare you. It's an integral part in all modern Android OS's for some ungodly unknown reason. It's easy to go into the settings and turn the programs off so they don't auto start when you power on your tablet. If you're just wondering if this tablet is worth the cost? In my very humble opinion, it is.
Pros: Easy setup, Stable O/S, Great Warranty
Overall Review: Recently upgrade to this tablet from a Kindle Fire HD, they are night and day. The kindle frequently froze and apps would close. I had to send it back for replacements twice. The Asus Memopad is breath of fresh air. The O/S is very stable and have not experienced apps stopping and the tablet suddenly rebooting itself. This is a must buy for anyone who wants a table without all the bugs and other issues.
Pros: It looked nice when it was working. Newegg is great about replacements.
Cons: Died after about an hour of use. I let it fully charge before turning it on, then powered the device on, logged in and began installed firmware updates. The first firmware update(over 100 MBs) installed fine. Then I installed the second firmware update(about 5 MBs). The device restarted as part of the firmware update, but never started back up. At the time the battery was at 100% and I still had it plugged into the AC adapter, so it wasn't a power issue. I tried everything I could think of as well as some suggestions from searching online. The backlight would turn on, but the device just displayed a black screen. Eventually after a day or so, the backlight wouldn't even light and nothing would display or light up if the power adapter was plugged in. It appears now that the device is totally without power and dead.
Overall Review: On the plus side, Newegg was great to work with and even pays return shipping on defective products like this. I should also mention that I spoke with ASUS, who was also willing to RMA the device for me, but I would have had to pay return shipping to ASUS, so I went with a replacement from Newegg instead.
At the moment, I can only give the product a 1 egg review as I was never really able to use it. I'll update this review as things progress.
Pros: I wanted to bring a low-cost tablet on our family vacation to Mexico and leave my trusty Mac Air and iPhone 5S at home. I didn’t have high expectations considering the price but to my surprise I love the unit. Having never used an Android device before I was a little concerned about quickly getting “up and running” but that turned out to be totally unfounded. If you’re presently using an Apple iOS device and you’re concerned about learning the Android interface, don’t give it another thought. Obviously the interface is different but the learning curve is quite minimal – particularly if you’re just surfing the web and doing email. The MeMo Pad 7 has great battery life, excellent screen and a decent camera. It worked great for me and my family.
Cons: It was a little challenging to sync MS Office 365 with the unit. I couldn’t find any decent documentation on-line. In fact, I found information that said it couldn’t be done – which turned out to be totally incorrect. Two MS Office 365 accounts and one MS Live account are all sync’ing perfecting between multiple devices and desktops.
Pros: The looks
Cons: All of the above. For email only.
Overall Review: I bought to use with my drone. It's can't even be used for anything but for email.
Pros: Worked good, was fast in boot and loading apps. ZenUI hardly ever bogged down the Android interface in any noticeable way. Good feel in one handed use, and it hardly got too warm to use under load.
Cons: I was the anonymous user who posted a year back on this tablet. I said it was good enough for 5 stars. Recently, out of the blue, it failed to work. After a normal session of use over its tenure, one day I tried to boot it, and the screen flickered and after that it refused to respond to any input. I took it to a trusted local repair shop, and talked to ASUS. They both confirmed the tablet no longer works. Odd how after one crash you think it will be all fine and dandy. Then months later after hardly using it, it fails. I strongly regret my last review and wish for an "edit review" option.
Oh, and I should mention ASUS did not honor my extended warranty or acknowledge the fact that I have nigh-ignored this tablet for several months in a safe place. Good on them.
Overall Review: I'm gonna say flat out, don't buy this if you expect more than a few months of this thing performing at its best. If you're an owner longer than I and it still works fine for you, I don't know what wizardry you have up your sleeve, but I might just have bad luck. No longer purchasing any ASUS device with an Intel Bay Trail CPU inside ever again. I don't want to risk a more important device crashing on me when I need it most.
