It's not a luxury tablet, but it's an affordable one that runs well, looks decent and ticks all the necessary boxes.

What makes the MeMO Pad 7 worthwhile is that it has few weak spots. It’s solid on performance, battery life, and user experience. It won’t take top honors in any category, but at $149.99 it’s a good value tablet offering indeed.

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.

In addition to a good-looking and sturdy build, it also boasts hardware that rivals tablets with higher price tags. If you're looking for a budget 7in tablet, it's definitely worth investigating this one.

Asus' MeMO Pad 7 is best tablet for its $229 price. Asus has found ripe middle-ground with its Android overlay, the design is the kind you’ll want to flaunt and there are a tonne of features. The Nexus 7 is the budget tablet we recommend, but many will ... pick this up instead.

The Asus Memo Pad 7 is a sturdy and reliable little tablet with good stamina, but at this point Asus needs to think about upgrading to a 1080p screen.
