One of the good things about the Android platform is the wide variety of devices one can choose from. Since there are a lot of manufacturers working on Android, one can pick any device of almost any configuration. The tight competition is bringing prices of Android devices down, and the ultimate winner really is the consuming public. In the tablet sphere, the Nexus 7 (2013) is the best choice since it is able to combine cheap price with excellent hardware specs.
One of the new Android tablets in the market is the Asus MemoPad HD 7. It is a 7-inch tablet just like the Nexus 7 and also just like Google’s tablet, it is made by Asus. The MemoPad HD 7 does not carry the same specs as the Nexus 7 but it is close. And while the Nexus 7 is priced at $229.99 for the 16GB model and $269.99 for the 32GB model, the Asus MemoPad HD 7 is priced much lower. In the Philippines, the 8GB variant of the Asus MemoPad HD 7 is priced at Php6,995 while the 16GB model is priced at P8,995.
There are actually other good options if you are looking for a 7-inch tablet. One such option is the AOC Breeze MW0731+ which is priced at P5,999 in the Philippines.
