Asus MeMO Pad 7 ME572C

Originally reviewed by 24 October 2014

Best 7-inch Android tablet

Key features:
  • Excellent screen
  • Good battery life
  • Attractive design
The Asus-manufactured Nexus 7 (2013) made the 7-inch Android tablet market its own, with its combination of solid specs, excellent performance and tiny price tag. However, it’s not as young as it used to be, and Asus has taken aim at it with the MeMO Pad 7 ME572C. It’s a unique-looking slate, with curved sides and sharp corners, but lacks a soft-touch plastic rear. At 8.3mm thick and 269g, it’s also thinner and lighter than the Nexus, without holding back on battery life and performance.

If you’re after something that’ll keep the family entertained, you might be best off looking elsewhere. The speakers offer solid but unremarkable sound quality and are easy to block with your fingers. While the 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution screen delivers excellent viewing angles and good contrast and colours, our review sample suffered from backlight bleed. It's not perfect by any means, and while it’s not as cheap as the Nexus, it’s definitely a better all-round device.

Price: £179 / $326
