We can all agree that articles about laptops, smartphones, tablets and the like are one of the influencing factors that help consumers decide if they want to buy a new gadget that they like. In this case, we are going to tackle two of the latest Asus and Toshiba tablets. Specifically, these are the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 and Toshiba Encore. Still to be released before the end of this year, let us take a look at what these devices can offer the worldwide market of technological gadgets and devices.
Customize Your Asus Memo Pad HD 7
What’s good about the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 is that it’s small and very portable. With a 1-inch difference from its Toshiba rival, this tablet rocks an impressive display feature that really maximizes its screen size. At 1280 x 800 pixels of screen resolution, it showcases colorful images with definite accuracy and sharpness. When reviewing photos and video clips, it provides details that even the Google Nexus 7 is having difficulties in showing. This is a definite advantage that positively enhances the user’s experience in streaming online media and playing games, both online and offline.
Another unique feature of this tablet are the customization options that come with the package. This lets users pick out the functions and adjust its levels so as to save battery life. When listening to music, users can opt for a screen with a lower brightness. But when watching video, the brightness level can be increased again. But because the user sets it up, he or she does not have to adjust brightness every time he or she is listening to music or watching a video. The tablet can automatically do that.
Finally, the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 also has the ability to display floating applications. Courtesy of a shortcut placed near the navigation bar, a menu can be activated to lead the users anywhere they want to go with their devices – but without leaving the current application that they are using. This is the easiest way that the user can multitask on this tablet which is a convenient way to save time and energy.
Premium Abilities By The Toshiba Encore
Scheduled to be released in November 2013, the Toshiba Encore is a much larger and heavier device than the Asus tablet. With an 8-inch screen size that goes appropriately well with its 450 grams of weight, some might say that this device is a handful. Generally speaking, we will agree. Incorporated with a Windows 8.1 operating system and an Intel Bay Trail Atom processor, most experts agree that this is probably one of its manufacturer’s most impressive creations. As long as the Encore works the way we expected, there is no doubt that consumers will choose this as their next gadget.
Specifically, the advantages of this device include the storage facility, camera feature and physical design. Let’s discuss the last one first. This tablet is crafted with a polycarbonate material with a silver shell color that smoothly adds a premium aura to the entire product. The edges and corners are a little bit curved – but it perfectly catered the external ports incorporated in the device. Compared to the Memo Pad HD 7, this one definitely looks more attractive, mature and business-like.
In terms of the photo-taking capabilities, the Toshiba Encore exhibits an 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front camera. The Asus handset only has 5 and 1.2 megapixels for the rear and front camera, respectively. The bonus points go to this tablet. On the other hand, individuals are also digging the fact that Toshiba was able to integrate a 32GB internal storage to this device. More impressively, that comes with an expansion slot of another 32GB which is really useful for storing a huge amount of photos, videos and general files.
The Cons Of Asus Memo Pad HD 7 And Toshiba Encore
What more can you ask for? The answer to this question is simple. For the Asus Memo Pad HD 7, a more good-looking design and better choices of material will be considered as an improvement. Also, consumers are saying that the touch screen has low responsiveness. Meanwhile, for the Toshiba Encore, a battery life that can last for longer than 7 hours will be greatly appreciated.
The Bottom Line
Consumers still have to wait a little while before they can purchase these two products. We are hoping that these are both not too demanding when it comes to the retail price. We have seen what they can offer and its only a question of which tablet makes more impact to us.
