This week, I’m going to take a small break from reviewing smartphones and point my attention towards some other devices that have become more and more present and even necessary in our lives, I’m talking about tablets. If you’re interested in buying a small, capable and also affordable tablet, you might take a look over the following review, which is about the Asus Memo Pad ME572C. This 7-inch fellow has been designed for those of you who need something small (yet bigger than your usual smartphone), intelligent and also wallet friendly. Some of its main features are a 7 inches LCD screen, an Intel Atom Z3560 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, a 5 MP snapper, stereo speakers, a hefty 3,950 battery and more. Well, these being said, let’s move forward and get into actual details about it, shall we?

Inside its retail box, the Memo Pad 7 ME572C comes along with its charger and a micro-USB cable, but nothing more. Let’s carry on and check out its appearance.

The tablet stands at 200 x 114.4 x 8.3 mm and has a weight of 269 grams. Its design is very simple and doesn’t really stand out of the crowd, but that’s not a bad thing by any means. Unlike some of its siblings, the Memo Pad 7 ME572C features sharp edges, which look great, but can be uncomfortable for some of you when holding the device in landscape mode. In terms of build quality, the tablet seems to be really solid and reliable.

The Memo Pad 7 ME572C offers a 7 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and a pixel density of 323 ppi. For protection, it features a Corning Concore glass, which is inferior when compared with the latest and greatest Corning Gorilla Glass, so you might want to purchase an additional screen protector if you’re worried about potential scratches and the like. The Concore glass also welcomes smudges, unfortunately. But let’s leave out the negative parts and make some way for the positive ones, which are actually dominant. The tablet offers a great image quality, with vibrant and punchy colors, excellent brightness, very wide viewing angles and great contrast. The sunlight legibility is also good, so you won’t be having any issues when using the tablet on the outside.

In terms of user interface, the Asus Memo Pad 7 ME572C comes loaded with Android v4.4.2 KitKat, which has been customized here and there by Asus. When browsing through it, you’ll be welcomed by the classic Android lockscreen which offers the date and time and shortcuts towards the browser, email, camera and Google Now. Also here stand the reminders from the What’s Next app.
The homescreen holds four shortcuts, which is the maximum that is supported, and Google and Asus folders for gathering the applications which are associated with them. You can set up to 7 homescreens.
The notification area holds your notifications (naturally) and appears when dragging down from the left of the status bar. Pulling right will display the quick toggles, which are joined by a brightness slider. The interface is friendly and intuitive, so browsing through it will go smooth and easy, offering a pleasant user experience.

At the hardware department, the Asus Memo Pad 7 ME572C comes packed with an Intel Atom Z3560 chipset, relying on a quad-core 1.83 GHz processor, PowerVR G6430 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 64 GB. The tablet is a great performer and won’t disappoint you, offering a flawless user experience which has nothing to do with lag issues or freezes.

In the connectivity package, we’ll come across support for dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/b/ac with Wi-Fi Direct and Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and microUSB 2.0. This is a Wi-Fi only tablet, but there’s another one available which supports 2G, 3G and LTE.

The Memo Pad 7 ME572C comes with a 5 MP camera with autofocus which takes stills with a maximum resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. The camera application offers support for HDR, Panorama, manual settings for adjusting the ISO, white balance, exposure compensation and more. The pictures produced aren’t anything to write home about, as the image quality is pretty uninspiring even for a 5 MP snapper. However, it will prove itself as being decent enough for taking an occasional pic.

The video camera  is able to produce 1080p videos @ 30 fps, but doesn’t stand far from its still sister in terms of image quality.
A front facing 2 MP camera is also on board for making video calls.

Some other handy tools offered are a GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support, Google Chrome and the Android browser for surfing the web, a file manager, Google Maps and Navigation for getting around and more

The Asus Memo Pad 7 ME572C is powered by a 3,950 mAh battery and will last for 12 hours of continuous browsing or 10 of video playback.
