A slate with swift cellular speeds

At 7 inches, the Asus Memo Pad 7 is as big as some smartphones. As a tablet, it's on the small side. Yet its affordable pricing and high-speed cellular capabilities set it apart from other small slates.

Big, yet small

The 7-inch Asus's design is nostalgic of small tablets from two years ago. Compact and portable, it's a bit girthy and heavy -- when compared to top mini tablets, that is.

Life with a 7-inch screen

The 7-inch Asus tablet doesn't have phone call capabilities, but the idea of a phone this big seems a little far-fetched.

Sly slots

On the top-left edge of the tablet you'll find a sneaky flap. Flip it open for the SIM and microSD card slots.

Smooth and matte

The back panel features a smooth matte finish that has a pleasant feel. The Memo Pad's rounded edges also make it comfortable to hold.

Dim and dimmer

The small screen suffers from low brightness. It's dim in bright environments and very difficult to see outdoors. It's also prone to heavy glare.

High-five for 5-megapixels

The 5-megapixel rear camera on the Memo Pad 7 LTE is a nice surprise. The photos come out relatively sharp, well exposed, and with realistic colors.

Front-facing speakers

Housing two speakers on the front, the Memo Pad 7 LTE is fine for streaming video when watching solo.
