Review Asus PadFone 2 Smartphone

 

The good and the weird. Asus has announced the launch of the PadF

Premium design; Simple operation; Good workmanship; Powerful processor

Fragile charging port; Back of the tablet is not flat; Dirt prone due to the open slot

So far there has been only one such hybrid solution on the market, namely, the Asus PadFone 1. The competition comes from the same manufacturer.

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

No dedicated keyboard dock ; No microSD expansion

ASUS finally has a convincing PadFone and PadFone Station that are both very powerful and very portable.

Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? The Asus Padfone 2 is both rolled into one, but is it any good?

Slick phone design ; Neat docking mechanism ; Great phone screen

Tablet audio is average ; Separate use is impossible ; Tablet design underwhelming

Asus Padfone 2 review

 

The Asus Padfone 2 wants to simplify the smartphone or tablet or conundrum, giving you both sides of the equation, locked into symbiotic coexistence.

Good smartphone performance, excellent docking system, clever software tweaks

You compromise on both halves of the package, especially on the tablet device

The Asus Padfone 2 is somewhat niche. It's well executed, but with conventional smartphone/tablet options at the same price, it has to fit your life perfectly to be considered.
