Its performance is meekly mediocre, and consistent lagging combined with a sometimes unresponsive touch screen make the tablet best suited for simple tasks like browsing and reading.

6.1
The music setting works best with vocal-centered music that isn't overproduced.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Apps

Some of the apps that are geared towards family use include App Locker, which allows you to put passwords on specific apps; Asus Artists, where you can create "paintings" or greeting cards; and Asus Story, which helps you organize your photos into albums, or as they call them, "stories.

When activated, a small menu pops up above the navigation bar that contains a selection of floating apps that you can quickly access without having to close whatever app you're currently using.

Bass heavy music sadly lacked oomph, and I found the recording mode to provide a better, fuller sound for that type of music.

Screen

With a large 20-inch display that sits on your desktop, 2 feet in front of you, this is rarely an issue; however, on a much smaller 7-inch screen that you’re much more likely to move around and adjust, whether you’re playing a game or reading a book, it can, as it does here, quickly become an issue.
by c|net (Apr, 2013)
The screen's responsiveness to touch wasn't always on point.
by c|net (Jul, 2013)
The Memo Pad has a 1,024x600-pixel-resolution screen, which in 2013 is low, even for a cheap 7-inch tablet.

Battery

The tablet comes with Power Saver, a battery-saving feature that comes in handy if you're trying to squeeze the most out of a low battery.

The Memo Pad’s battery lasted only about 6 hours when playing a continuously looping video, which pales in comparison to the Nexus 7’s 10-plus hours of battery life.

When enabled, it significantly helped extend the battery life when it was low.

Camera

Color reproduction is pretty good for the most part – quite similar to the original N7, in fact – and the viewing angles are excellent.
by Android Police (Aug, 2013)
Camera quality is fine, but nothing particularly spectacular.
by c|net (Mar, 2013)
The tablet has a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera with a rear 5-megapixel shooter on the back.
by c|net (Jul, 2013)

Operating System

The Memo Pad ships with Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) and its interface follows the same style as the Nexus 7's, with a toolbar of apps at the bottom or right side of the screen, depending on the tablet’s orientation.
by c|net (Apr, 2013)
The modified shade also combines the dual notification pulldowns of stock Android 4.2+ for a single, centered pane, much like what was seen in Android 4.1 on small tablets.
by Android Police (Aug, 2013)
Those are sought after and not always easy to find on Android tablets, but you have to ask yourself whether those ports, essentially, are worth the price to be paid.
