Hi there,
just ordered my Asus Memo Pad HD7 and I didnt find a single Thread about it, am I just blind or are there none?

I am looking for Custom Roms etc, guess it's just a little early for that, but maybe just rooting works?

Is there a Thread or sub forum for the Memo Pad HD7 ?

So how does it work for you? Do you recommend it? I love the price. I am considering buying 3-4 for the family.

Thank you


well its really feels kinda cheap and microsd card is killing me (there is just an open slot) and its gets an error every ~30min, microsd worked fine in galaxy s3 before...

but well, thats the downside, the rest is kinda nice and the price is killing, so yeah ! :)

Also got it from Amazon.de, I guess they received an early batch and started shipping immediately. I'm quite happy with it, it's feels okay (plastic but nice), is fast and runs smoothly. Modifications by Asus are few and usually well made - except for a permanent button in the left hand corner that lets you used floating apps because you can't remove it even if you don't like using such apps

As for the sd card, I had the same problem two days ago but it stopped. Probably it just was inserted slightly askew. The missing cover for it is a bit of a design flaw but a short piece of transparent duct tape can fix that (It's a 149 € device after all)


Since Amazon started shipping them early, I had hoped someone had found a way to root them already, which is the only thing that bugs me at the moment. Hopefully someone will hack it soon. I expect there will be quite a demand for those devices since the Nexus 7.2 is still not out and this is basically a Nexus 7 with better hardware and SD card support anyway

Worth the price

Hi guys,

I already got it and tested it now quite a while. Yeah it feels a bit cheap but it certainly is! I will use it for surfing on the couch and reading book, comics etc. so it doesn't really bother. And that's what Asus wanted with this little thingy.

The screen looks pretty much like SGS2 quality screen, of course a bit bigger.
The Asus android is.. well.. ok i guess ^^. It will give you constantly show you a symbol in the upper bar when you install a SDcard and the wifi direct did only work a single time..
I will use other roms if they're available i think. I already read about some devices with GPS failure or SDcard slot failure, so i think the price does come with low quality. But you can change it as long as you get a working one^^.

The case is completely ok. Many described it as slippy because it's plastic. Hmja it is, but if you don't have too sweaty hands it's not worse than a iPhone 3G or so.
Mine has a bit of an sharp edge around the upper side. well..

So for 150 € its really okay. But with new roms it would be even better, i am sure.

Hey guys. I just got the tablet and it is great. :) I have a question about screen-protectors.

They are very few and very expensive screen protectors that are specified for Memo pad HD 7. My question is: are there other(cheaper) screen protectors that will fit the screen area of the tablet? It will be a temporally solution until cheap china-made screen-protectors hit the market. :)

They are mostly expensive because they are also non-reflective. You could try buying one made for the predecessor (like this one) and cut away parts that don't fit.

Thank you for the advice. I will order some from eBay.

btw do you use any type of case on your tablet? And what are your thoughts on available cases for the Memo pad HD 7?

I ordered those (made for Nexus 7):
http://dx.com/p/protective-matte-screen-protector-film-guard-for-google-nexus-7-150173
http://dx.com/p/protective-pu-leather-case-for-google-nexus-7-tablet-black-152251

Have not received yet. But it should be almost equal size with Nexus 7. The main differences are connectors on top and backside camera

Are you located in the U.S. or elsewhere? I've been checking every day and haven't yet found a single one available in the States. Some people say the official release date for the U. S. is tomorrow, the 10th, but I don't know if that's correct or not.

Where did you get yours?

Hello again. I'm reporting after having some full days of experience with the tablet. It is flawless! Best value for that money. Still have not got my hands on proper accessories :( Amazon still haven't shipped the PersonaCover and the screen protectors haven't arrived yet.


I have a generic tablet question: Is there a way of using the front camera as a sensor to not dim/switch-off the screen? When i'm watching the screen it will not switch-off. Something like the build in sensor on the Galaxy S3?
