Whether you need better readability of text or want to enjoy your photos or movies on a larger screen, an 8-inch tablet can make a surprising difference compared to smaller 7-inch models. The Asus MeMo Pad 8 ME180A T... show more
An extra inch on the screen size may not sound like much but it gives you 30 per cent more usable display area, so it makes a big difference to the day-to-day functionality of the device. However, the MeMO Pad 8 measures only 127mm across thanks to the narrow bezel around the screen, which means it will still fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. It's also light enough not to weigh you down if you're carrying it around in your bag during the day.
There's plenty of processing power too with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of memory. It has 16GB of on-board storage as standard and you can expand that via a MicroSD card slot that will take up to 64GB. You also get access to 16GB of cloud storage included in the package so you can keep your important files available wherever you are.
Power on the move
The processor is powerful enough to deliver speedy browsing along with smooth playback of videos or lag-free game playing. The 10-point multi-touch display ensures responsive inputs too.
The MeMO Pad 8's battery provides up to 9 hours of use on a full charge and connectivity is taken care of by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It also supports Miracast, allowing you to stream video or pictures to a TV or another device.
Built to entertain
The MeMO Pad 8 delivers clear sound thanks to stereo speakers and Asus SonicMaster technology. You can choose from five different audio modes in order to tailor the sound output to suit your needs. There's an audio jack if you want to listen in private on headphones.
There are two cameras, a 5MP rear and a 1.2MP front, both capable of 720p video recording, so you can make your own movies or talk to your friends via video chats. The camera app has some clever features like face detection that make photography easier and scene modes that allow you to get creative with your pictures.
Because it runs Android there are thousands of apps available to perform just about any function. You also have the benefit of ZenUI the MeMO Pad’s own application system which lets you customise the user experience and includes apps for taking notes, reading ebooks and more.show less
