The ASUS MeMO Pad 8 is definitely not a powerhouse like their Transformer Pad TF701, but it will still get the job done. It has a 8-inch 1280×800 IPS display, quad-core AMD Processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 5MP camera on the back and a 1.2MP front-facing camera. It also has Android 4.2.2 on board, which it should be getting upgraded to Android 4.4 soon, or at least we are hoping it does. It also has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot. I reviewed the 7-inch version of the MeMO Pad and it was pretty nice, but it’s definitely not a high-end tablet.
The ASUS MeMO Pad 8 is on sale now for about $50 off, which isn’t a whole lot, but it’s something. If you’re looking for a nice 8-inch tablet, there’s not much to choose from. Just the MeMO Pad 8, Galaxy Note 8 and the LG G Pad 8.3. All of which are differently spec’d and were released at different times. The MeMO Pad 8 weighs about 0.8 pounds as well, making it pretty light weight.
