ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME70CX 7-Inch 16GB Tablet

Pros:

  • Good for young children
  • Runs on Android

With a 7-inch screen, this is one of the cheapest and smallest Android tablets I have. Despite the fact that it’s the “junior” version of the MeMO Pad (there is another version with 9-inch screen), it runs on the same specs as the much more expensive MeMO Pad 7.

What’s more this tablet is available in two colors ” a pink one for girls and a blue one for boys.

The MeMO Pad 7 offers a great balance between price and performance. It’s made out of a blue plastic that makes it feel sturdy and durable (though a bit heavier and bulkier than others). It also comes with a rubber cover that protects the device from everyday bumps and falls.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the best children's tablet on the market?

The iPad mini 4 is the best kids’ tablet anyway and is the current market leader. Unfortunately, the price is fairly high and it may not be a suitable choice if you’re on a budget.

The other good option is the Amazon’s Fire 7 Kids. Kids will love both tablets since they are affordable and have good features like parental controls, extensive parental guides and child-friendly apps. Plus, both of these come with age-specific cover options as well.

The Fire 7 Kids is the obvious choice for Amazon Prime members; simply because you can find access to thousands of educational videos, games and books. If you’re not a Prime member, the iPad mini is the better option.

Which tablet has the best parental controls?

Some tablets are truly kid-friendly while others are not. You’ll have a hard time finding any tablet that’s free from ads or supplies applications with in-app purchases as part of its default settings. You’ll also have a hard time finding any tablet that comes with a lock screen that doesn’t have a bypass code. For these reasons, you should set your parental controls immediately.

There are a few things to note about the tablet parental controls:

  • Supervised use is always enabled
  • You have the option to enable or disable in-app purchases.
  • You can restrict access to certain services, accounts and websites.
  • There are several level of restrictions that you can set.
  • You can set time limits for specific apps and the device’s usage.

Which is the best tablet in 2020?

The tablet market has now become very competitive, and there are so many brands and models to choose from. So which one is the best?

Let us first discuss what will be the best tablet for kid’s use. To use a tablet for young kids, it must be durable enough to withstand some bumps. Kids can be rough with their devices, and a sturdy screen is essential. You will be surprised at how often the screens break because kids are always throwing things, dropping items, and using their tablets while either in the car or gripped in their hands.

Another quality that is absolutely necessary in a tablet for children is a great display. You don’t want a screen that has poor viewing angles, bad color rendition, and washed-out colors. This means it will be impossible to see what’s on the screen at odd angles and under different lighting.

Conclusion

Without a doubt, kids absolutely love tablets, and it seems like they are really taking off in popularity among adults. We are not sure of the exact numbers on this trend, but it would not surprise us if tablets for adults are fairly close in popularity to iPads.

The reasons they’re so popular is their ease of use. Tablets are also a lot safer and easier to use than most smartphones. They’re also much easier to use in terms of user interface than computers.

For these reasons, we thought it would be helpful to put together a list of the best tablets and some of the best accessories to go with them.
