*I received the below tablet for review. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*
My husband has been pleading with me to get him a tablet, since I am always the one with the latest technology. He loves the idea of having a tablet to surf the Internet, check sports scores, download apps, etc. However, he never had one until now. Recently, Asus sent us THE BRAND NEW Asus MeMO Pad 8 (ME181) Android Tablet for review and I have to say this tablet is AMAZING!!
When we took it out of the box, the first thing that we both noticed was how the screen was the perfect size for a tablet. It was not overly big, yet not the size of a cellphone screen. It is very slender and very light! So many pads I have tried are heavy and cumbersome. This you can literally read and use with the palm of your hand. It is a fully featured 8-inch, industry-leading 64-bit Android tablet that excels at entertainment.There is an on/off button on the side of the pad, that readily allows you to turn it on and turn off. It also comes with a convenient charger, which my husband uses throughout the night.
Once on, you can swipe to turn on the screen power. Then you have the ability to see various features on your home screen such as your contacts, note taking app, music, google, calendar, camera, calculator, and more. My husband downloaded Facebook on the pad, so he can readily search through the Asus. He also has it set up so he can get notifications on what he has to do for the day and what is on the agenda for the following day.
The MeMO Pad 8 comes equipped with a 5-megapixel main camera and 1.2 2-megapixel front-facing camera that both feature PixelMaster technology. This assures outstanding image quality and provides additional features such as Time Rewind Mode, Selfie Mode and Always in Focus that make taking stunning photos easy. MeMO Pad 8 is powered by an 64-bit Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor (up to 1.86GHz) to further round out the entertainment experience by ensuring smooth video playback, responsive games and apps, and snappy web browsing. The camera on the Asus Memo Pad 8 is amazing! The quality is truly second to none thanks to the PixelMaster technology. The pictures are so detail and vivid, that you will definitely be amazed! You can also stream video right to your TV from the pad. The MeMO Pad 8 streams video in high-definition to a compatible TV or other display, while aptX® CSR Bluetooth technology enables wireless streaming of high-quality audio to headphones and other supported devices.
The Asus Memo Pad 8 excels at entertainment. Its dual-channel stereo speakers with SonicMaster technology can reproduce a wide frequency range for crystal-clear high notes and deep bass, even at high volumes. Combined with its high-definition ultra-wide-view IPS display, movies and games come to life. Support for Miracast™ lets MeMO Pad 8 stream video in high-definition to a compatible TV or other display, while aptX® CSR Bluetooth technology enables wireless streaming of high-quality audio to headphones and other supported devices. My husband loves pumping music through this pad. I have never heard a device play music so smoothly and clearly. A lot of time he plugs in his headphones and falls asleep listening.
The Asus Memo Pad 8 is an incredible android tablet with powerful features. You can download any app possible with the click of a button and have access to all the latest games. Surfing the Internet has also never been easier. It is the world’s lightest 8-inch LTE tablet that delivers outstanding performance in a remarkably thin and stylish package. The display is covered with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 for incredible scratch resistance and durability, so do not worry if your kids get a hold of this tablet.
Here are some additional features of this tablet:
8-inch 1280×800 HD IPS display for excellent outdoor reading
Quad-core powered processor for smooth performance
Less bezel at 5 inches offers one handed portability
30% more screen space than a 7-inch tablet
5 MP rear camera and 1.2 MP front camera to capture life’s moments
If you are looking for a great tablet, look no further than the new Asus Memo Pad 8 which just came out this month! Weighing only 12 ounces and 5 inches wide, this is a pad you can take anywhere with you. My husband absolutely LOVES this tablet. My only complaint now is he won’t share!
