Fragile charging port, Back of the tablet is not flat, Dirt prone due to the open slot, Where did the stylus go? Did the headset/input device combo not arrive

Asus PadFone 2 review

 

The second generation of this dockable smartphone/tablet combo has a lot to recommend it, although we'd prefer a better tablet screen, a storage expansion slot (or two) and a standard Micro-USB connector.

Tablet/smartphone combo ; Clever twin battery system ; Well-specified handset

Average-quality tablet screen ; No storage expansion on tablet or phone ; Non-standard Micro-USB connector

There are two big disappointments, though: the quality of the tablet screen and the lack of storage expansion. We're also unclear why Asus has chosen to use a slightly tweaked Micro-USB connector.

Powerful and efficient quad-core chip ; Top-notch camera performance ; Surprisingly light tablet ; Innovative docking mechanism

Asus Padfone 2 hands-on: A different transformer

 

Asus just announced their new Padfone in Milan and we were on the scene to cover it live. The Asus Padfone 2 is an Android phone with the rather unique ability to become the heart of a tablet, just like the original Padfone.

Talk of cameras is no good without samples though, so here's a selection of snapshots from the Padfone 2 taken in ever-changing conditions. All were taken at 10MP in 16:9 aspect ratio, no effects, just stock settings.

ASUS PadFone 2 - A Serious Contender

 

It took ASUS just six months to come up with the successor to the highly innovative PadFone. Can the Taiwanese company push the envelope once again with the PadFone 2? Check out our full assessment to find out more!

Superb 4.7-inch display ; Good overall performance ; Great camera image quality ; Sleeker PadFone Station

No memory card slot ; Lack of a keyboard dock ; Could have shipped with Android 4.1 ; Real-world battery life is lackluster
