Asus Philippines recently released the Asus Memo Pad HD 7, a tablet that is increasingly becoming a top contender in the Android tablet space. It’s about time we deserve to get a high performance tablet at a very competitive price of PhP6,995.

The Asus Memo Pad HD 7  runs on Android 4.2, Jelly Bean. Most geeks know that this version of Android has a lot of improvement in terms of speed and performance. New software features also include Photo Sphere, a completely redesigned camera app, new Gesture Typing keyboard, Google Now with all new cards, and much more. Everything in Jelly Bean feels fast, fluid, and smooth. Moving between home screens and switching between apps is effortless, like turning the pages of a book.

The Memo Pad HD 7’s impressive hardware feature made all of these software features and fluidity in terms of performance very much possible.

Performance

The ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor ARM Cortex A7 CPU. Consumers should not be discouraged by this less well-known component, because in our tests, ASUS’s tablet provided impressive performance.

When we played Real Racing 3, animations were very smooth and it rendered sharp images. Special effects like smoke, skid marks, glares and motion blur are not absent during our tests. I also tried playing other games like Minion Rush, Asphalt 7 & Dead Trigger Need for Speed: Most Wanted and more. All mentioned games worked well, but I experienced occasional stuttering. I also noticed that the device isn’t heating up too much, except when I was charging.

When I ran AnTuTu Benchmark, a test that measures graphics prowess, the ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 scored an unremarkable 13,144.

The 7-inch screen is an IPS LCD screen. This is responsible for producing vivid and clear media content that your eyes can feast on. It’s perfect for readers, gamers and even for movie buffs like me.

Camera

At the back of the device is a 5-megapixel camera. Asus Memo Pad HD 7’s takes great pictures if subjects are well lighted. Unfortunately for subjects that are not on well-lit environments, photo output will produce too much noise. The absence of flash is also kind of a letdown. Check out my sample photos below for your reference.

Battery

Asus Memo Pad HD 7 can squeeze around 10 hours of battery life (involving constant video playback) from the slate.

Unless you really tax it with constant video streaming at full brightness, you will only be able to use it at less than 6 hours.

As always, if you want to get the best battery life possible when you’re away from a plug for a while, keep the screen brightness turned to a minimum, use the Asus power-saving tool to limit certain functions and avoid streaming over Wi-Fi until you’re within dashing distance of a socket.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

The Gadget Pilipinas Team was given access to a press briefing with Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director from From Software and a bit of hands-on gameplay. Here’s our take on the hands-on gameplay and the insights from the press interview. We also  figured a listicle is in order to rundown why this game will match the hype surrounding it.

Here’s our Top 5 reasons why “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” is to die for.

1) The game is Tenchu-inspired

sk8lqukaqalhq2mrzkqd 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forIf you’ve played any of the Tenchu games in previous game consoles, you know that the use of the grappling hook to set-up a one-slash-stealth kills from above is a hallmark of the series. Zipping to rooftops and treetops will be the go-to move in this game to get rid of sentries. And yes, those ever-so glorious decapitations and dismemberments with the stealth kill are present.

2) Casual or hardcore can play

sn1rmqcvrwomyuttaoyq 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forFrom Software is notorious for challenging games and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is no exception. However, Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director of From Software, revealed that he himself is a casual gamer and has made it clear that the game should be accessible to beginners and experienced players alike.

3) Upgradeable prosthetic arm

jjn6e6ivua5u142iukql 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forThat prosthetic arm that Sekiro has isn’t just for looks. It can launch a grappling hook and is upgradeable too. No details were revealed but its good to know that a skill-tree based system is in place. Think Horizon Zero Dawn or Spiderman on the way skill and gadgets are upgraded. Tech upgrades set in feudal Japan? What’s not to like?

4) Play the style that suits you

jo1pi5md3myj0pxynz9p 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forStealth like Tenchu or head-on like Dark Souls? It’s up to you. What’s clear is that you can’t use stealth for the whole campaign since the game wasn’t designed that way. Stealth can be used to thin enemy numbers and to preserve your health before confronting the big boss. The mix of stealth and hack and slash is always a good mix to change-up the pace and should suit any gameplay style.

5) Single-player only campaign can last 20 to 30 hours 

ocxemodvr6oa72argpyo 770x433 - Top 5 reasons "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice" is to die forThat’s the length of the campaign as per Miyazaki. The game is focused-solely on the single-player experience. No more wayward players who can just jump-in and help or derail your campaign. From Software also focused on the story-telling. Given that no resources were spent in developing the multiplayer aspect, expect the campaign to take it up a notch.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be released on March 22, 2019 on PC, Xbox One and the Playstation 4.

Heads-up, Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) players. The PES game you’re playing on your phone is going to get a major upgrade.

For starters, the visuals will get a major overhaul and will be using Unreal Engine 4 – the same graphics engine used in triple A games for consoles and PCs. With the use of Unreal Engine 4, PES will be inching closer to how it looks versus its console port. It

Next, over 3,000 new animations, improved player AI with every playstyle accounted for, and realistic ball movements has been optimized for fans to enjoy the ultimate soccer game.

And lastly, 10 new league licenses from Europe, South America and Asia have been added, including Japan’s J. League.

The best part? Despite these updates,  Winning Eleven 2019 is still free-to-play (with in-game purchases).

PES 2019 promises to give a life-like behavior of the beautiful game and should take competitive mobile sports gaming to new heights.
