Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10 - Design and Features, Screen
Solid connectivity options
Easy-going software customisation
Nexus 10 represents better value
Like so many of Asus?s Android tablets, the Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10 excels at being practical. On the plus side it's fairly cheap and comes with expandable memory and a decent processor. However, on the flip side, the screen isn't all that great and the cameras also disappoint. Its biggest problem, however, is the Google Nexus 10, which for only £50 more offers a lot more tablet for the money.
Battery Life: 7/10
Screen Quality: 5/10
Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10
It's hard not to like the Asus MeMO Pad Smart 10: for the price it's an excellent buy. You get a name brand tablet from a company with a proven Android track record, a sharp (albeit not super high resolution) IPS display, a solid Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU with GeForce graphics and the usual compliment of wireless. There's no NFC, but I doubt many will care, and there's currently no 3G/4G option, but the basics including a strong GPS are there. Though internal storage didn't benchmark well, in daily use we didn't suffer any serious slow downs or errors. And though 16 gigs of internal storage isn't much by today's standards, it can easily be augmented with microSD cards and USB flash drives. If you're shopping for a reasonably priced Android tablet that doesn't sacrifice on basic features, this is it.

The bottom line:
Imagine a Nexus 7's innards expanded to a 10-inch tablet and you've got the Asus MeMo Pad Smart 10. Now ask yourself: why wouldn't you want something better?
