  • The sleek styling of the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX combined with its zippy 1.33-GHz Intel Atom Baytrail processor makes this slate a steal at $149. While the battery life does not live up to last year's model, it's a fine trade-off for the increased performance. Those looking for even more speed and stylus input should take a look at the EVGA Tegra Note 7 tablet, but it's a more expensive $189 and doesn't last as long on a charge. Overall, we highly recommend the MeMO Pad 7 to anyone looking for a small-budget Android tablet.


  • - Screen quality is very good, battery life is commendable and while we take issue with some of the approaches to software taken here, performance is strong.
    - Beaten on pure value by some.
    - Hard plastic back comes across a little cheap.
    - Too many pre-installed apps.
    - Fairly powerful 64-bit CPU.
    - The MeMO Pad 7 ME572C also offers proper stereo speakers, but they’re not a total smash.


  • The MeMO Pad 7 is easily one of the fastest 7-inch tablets you can get for under $200, but you'll miss out on extras like high-quality cameras and video output.
    The MeMO Pad 8 delivers a pretty big punch for a $200, 8-inch tablet -- just be aware that a few rivals offer sharper displays for similar cash.


  • The Apple iPad mini 3 is a , but you can get essentially the same experience from its predecessor for $100 less.


  • Long battery life, a crisp display and an excellent app selection are the heart of any good tablet. The iPad mini 3 offers all of these wrapped in a cool gold color, and tops the sundae with Apple's Touch ID feature. But if you can do without the gold and fingerprint reader, you can get all the same specs in the iPad mini 2 for $100 less.


  • - The speakers are too close together to provide adequate stereo separation.
    - Essentially the same tablet as the iPad mini 2 but a lot more expensive.
    - Made of aluminium with a shiny diamond-cut edge where it meets the screen, it looks and feels great in your hand.


  • The Asus MeMO Pad 7 is a bit thinner and lighter than most budget-friendly Android tablets, but some competitors offer better overall value.


  • The sleek styling of the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176CX combined with its zippy 1.33-GHz Intel Atom Baytrail processor makes this slate a steal at $149. While the battery life does not live up to last year's model, it's a fine trade-off for the increased performance.

Overall, we highly recommend the MeMO Pad 7 to anyone looking for a small-budget Android tablet.


  • - The Asus Memo Pad 7 is a sturdy and reliable little tablet with good stamina, but at this point Asus needs to think about upgrading to a 1080p screen.
    - Things like this graceless socket and the pretty tactless positioning of the charge and headphone sockets are signs that this tablet has no style pretensions.
    - You can max out its volume without worrying about crackly speaker distortion and it’s not painfully tinny, but sound quality isn’t great either.
    - Screen resolution is too low.


  • The iPad mini 2 is the best value iOS product on the market today, letting you into the Apple app world without breaking the bank.


  • The iPad mini with Retina Display boasts the sharpest screen in its class, a powerful A7 chip and epic battery life -- plus the best app selection -- all in a compact and elegant design.


  • The iPad mini Retina has improved exactly where it needed to. Better screen, better camera and much faster processor are all present, but it's not a wildly different experience from the original iPad mini. That's no bad thing as the iPad mini 2 is one of the best small-form tablets on the market, even if the extra cost is a little hard to justify.


  • The Dell Venue 7 is one of the best small tablet bargains. The larger Venue 8 is just as capable, however there are other 8-inch slates that offer more features for the same price.


  • - The front face also picks up fingerprints and smudges like crazy.
    - As such, Rs. 14,999 seems like a little too much for this device.
    - The speaker is loud and mostly clear.
    - Reading long documents did not pose any problem, and colours were generally vibrant except when the device was used under direct sunlight.
    - Battery life was also impressive, with the device lasting 7 hours, 9 minutes in our video loop test.
