  1. Seems a bit expensive. Hope you can review the 8 inch Qube android tablet with phone/3g capability, advertised P 6,990. It is the only other hd 8 inch android availabe locally. Thanks!

    • The Qube 8″ tablet has very good specs for only P6,999. I’ve already talked to their SM Cebu staff on the process of how to order it once it’s available this coming Feb.

      What’s the SoC of that tablet? MediaTek?

  2. Yung memo pad 8 or yung fonepad nila?

    same lang kasi ng price eh, parang gusto ko yung may call functionality.

    ”We’re not particularly sure which SoC the tablet is using but our best guess is that it’s an Exynos 4412 Prime or a Rockchip 3188”

    As per GOOGLE, it’s the downclocked version of the RK3188,unfortunately, this SoC lags like hell, kahit yung regular 1.8 ghz nila, may unexplained occasional stutters tsaka delay.

    magandang lang tingnan sa benchmarks dahil umaabot sa 19k-20k AnTuTu, pero pag real-world use, lagpak na, mas maganda pa Mediatek 6592

    I would advice potential buyers to avoid this!

    • wait nalang sa official review, asus naman yung tablet eh, since okay yung HD 7 nila I’m sure these two can more or less provide the same experience.

  4. Daming hanash! Kung ayaw ng specs eh di wag bumili. Peace!
