Asus MeMO Pad 8 ME181C is the new flagship from the Taiwanese company Asus incorporating a 8 inches display with Intel quad-core Processor. Asus have given the option to among between different colors that enhance the appeal of this tablet. You can already find this tablet on Amazon (pre-order) for $199 that states device will be launched on 22nd June 2014. We will tell you all the details about the Asus MeMO Pad 8 ME181C.
Design and Display
The company wanted to follow the trend of the market and will make it available in different colors: White, Black, Purple and Gold. Also, another point to be noted is that the company has achieved a fairly thin design that enhances the appeal of this tablet. It measures as 124.9 x 211.7 x 8.3 mm, while its weight is 320 grams. In short, a lightweight model that can sustain longer periods in the hand without being uncomfortable.
On the other hand, the screen of MeMO Pad 8 has a size of 8 inches and a resolution of 1,280 x 800 HD pixels. This is enough resolution for most of the contents, like images, applications and games, but sometime you might feel bad in case you want to watch movies in high quality, but not bad. The panel uses the IPS technology, with brighter images that are achieved and above all excellent viewing angles up to 178 degrees (both horizontally and vertically).
The Asus device incorporates a combination of two cameras in the photographic section. On one hand, we have a back that incorporates a 5MP autofocus camera. It is able to record video at a resolution of 1080p to immortalize our favorite scenes. The front lens has a humble resolution with 2 megapixel and can also record video in 720p. This camera will be used to carry out the popular selfies and for video call/conferencing applications like Skype and Hangouts. Overall, I can’t say best, but it’s moderate.
Memory and power
MeMO Pad 8 ME181C integrates an internal memory of 16 GB. Initially, it is a space that may be sufficient to store all personal files, applications and games. In addition, the Taiwanese company will also offer 5GB of free space on the online platform known as Asus Webstorage. The first year we will have another additional 11 GB for a total size of 32 GB. If this capacity is not enough, we can also use MicroSD with this that supports up to 64 GB.
Another attraction of the tablet is to have Intel Processor to enhance the system. Specifically, this device has a Intel Atom Z3745 quad core processor with a power of 1.86 GHz per core, combined with a memory of 1 GB RAM. This set will run smoothly for most applications and games.Yes, the RAM can create little trouble in case we want to have many applications open.
Operating System and Applications
Asus will launh this with Android 4.4 KitKat. This patch introduces the latest system, such as a marked improvement in the performance of menus. Also, when we’re listening to a song we can see the cover art of the piece on the lock screen. Finally, we would like to highlight an automatic function that analyzes the calls we receive from unknown senders, which may come from trades or businesses. As usual, we can also enjoy Asus’s own customization Asus Zen UI. One of the tools that attracted our attention is What’s Next, a platform that shows a timeline with upcoming events we have selected. This line is also displayed on the lock screen of the tablet.
Android has over a million applications from its official store. It is an ecosystem that has achieved a high maturity, and offers users a huge number of options to customize the device to your liking. Some of the most interesting apps of the Android platform include, like WhatsApp , Line, Facebook, or Instagram. In addition, we should not forget the Google apps, such as Gmail, Google Maps and Hangouts may be very important and amazing to use in big display.
