Asus PadFone X


Other than its predecessors , there's nothing quite like the Asus PadFone X. As a smartphone- tablet (and sometimes even laptop!) hybrid, it is an amalgamation of two devices aiming to give users the most seamless and efficient mobile experience.

AT&T's Asus PadFone X has a fast quad-core processor, a capable 13-megapixel camera, and it can dock into a 9-inch tablet that doubles as a charger.

When combined, the PadFone X has a clunky design and its rear-camera loses a few some of its features. The device also comes with a lot of bloatware and a nonremovable battery.

Though it has last year's specs, the PadFone X marries two mobile devices into one convenient form at an affordable price.

Asus PadFone X review


Have you ever had trouble moving files from your tablet to your phone? Have you ever wished that they were better connected? If you answered yes, you should probably check out Asus. The PC maker has been iterating on its PadFone concept of phones that...

Comfortable to hold ; Beautiful screen ; Powerful specs ; Two decent things … for the price of one ; Tablet doubles as a battery ; Decent warranty

Tablet screen is oddly small ; Apps crash … a lot ; Peripherals don’t cut it ; Easily blockable speaker ; A lot of AT&T bloatware

PadFone X is a fantastic deal. For $550 (or $200 on AT&T contract), you get a phone and a tablet dock, and they both perform admirably.

ASUS Padfone X review: A phone to replace your tablet? Not quite.


I doubt ASUS knew it was carving out a place in Android history when it revealed the first Padfone back in 2011. That's not just because it starred in an

Good display quality on both the phone and tablet ; Ample horsepower ; On-contract price is just right

Switching between phone and tablet modes can be awkward ; Uninspired, clunky design ; Speaker quality leaves much to be desired

ASUS' Padfone X promises seamless switching between phone and tablet modes, but the company's execution doesn't live up to expectations. While some might like the curious combo for its low price tag, most people would be better served by two separate...

ASUS PadFone X (AT&T)


ASUS' PadFone X is an innovative and affordable hybrid that doubles as smartphone and tablet, but it's better in the former mode.

Combines two devices in one; Impressive value; Slick Dynamic Display feature; Above average tablet battery life; Strong performance

Below-average smartphone battery life; Bezel on tablet too large; Performance trails flagship Android devices

Asus PadFone X (AT&T)


While not a perfect union, the modular Asus PadFone X offers a compelling smartphone and tablet combo for the price of a typical smartphone alone.

Tablet dock included in base price. Nice full-HD display on phone and tablet. Good overall performance. Quick and easy transition from phone to tablet

Unexciting smartphone design, and clunky as a tablet. Performance lag in tablet mode

Asus has been trying to nail down the modular mobile device for some time now, but the PadFone X is the first iteration of the company's tablet-smartphone hybrid to reach the U.S. Was it worth the wait? In the age of digital omnivorism, yes, but with...

Asus Padfone X Review


Although it's a smartphone at its core, the Asus PadFone X is unique for its ability to instantly transform into a versatile 9-inch tablet – giving it a useful dual-functionaly, which is undoubtedly its key selling point. Before its anticipated release...

You get a smartphone & tablet combo for $200 on-contract ; Display produces some of the most accurate colors ; Processor might be “old”, but it’s still delivers a peppy performance ; Fast snapping camera that takes good looking photos

Design of both the smartphone and tablet is uninspiring ; Camera photos lack detail ; Call quality is a bit on the challenging side ; 4K video recording quality is very choppy

2-in-1 devices are undoubtedly useful, seeing that it eliminates the need to purchase two different things. As a phone, the Asus PadFone X can’t stack up against the sluggers in the space at the moment, it just can’t. Furthermore, this combinational...
