Asus FonePad Review


Tablets with voice-calling capabilities seem to be the order of the day. As ridiculous as the concept may be, this new trend has already caught on like wild fire in India and it's not uncommon to see hipsters talking on their tablet instead of a phone....

The FonePad uses the same Intel Lexington-based Z2420 Atom SoC that we first saw on the XOLO X500. Even with 1GB of RAM, the SoC isn’t the fastest and it shows when you try to switch between apps or load a heavy game like Dead Trigger. Media Asus...

Review Asus Fonepad ME371MG Tablet


Like a brick on your ear. Samsung's Note kicked off the ongoing wave of large smartphones, aka phablets. Now, Asus joins in with its big 7-inch Fonepad, nominally a tablet to make phone calls. It will definitely attract attention when held to an ear -...

Good workmanship, Rigid casing, Contrast rich display, High viewing angle stability, Good speech quality, The idea of the Fonepad is not brand new, but interesting. The concept has been well-implemented

Headset not included, Screen's low brightness, Low-quality camera, Incompatibilities of Intel's platform, Very weak PSU, A headset and a better camera. Maybe even a second camera providing the quality is better

ASUS Fonepad review


Take a 7-inch ASUS Android tablet, add an earpiece and a dialer, and what comes out is the Fonepad. The ASUS Fonepad — mainly tablet, but also part phone. And ASUS is definitely...

just phone. Sadly that wait continues.

ASUS Fonepad Review


Are you ready to use a tablet like a regular phone? Read our ASUS Fonepad review and find out all about this Intel Atom-powered crossover.

phone functionality via earpiece ; affordable price ; decent performance ; good battery life ; solid build quality ; aluminum back ; close to stock experience

screen is extremely difficult to clean (and maintain clean) ; – mediocre screen ; no main camera on our review unit ; decent performance ; Nexus 7-like design becoming old ; – back cover is difficult to remove ; – only Android 4.1.2 out of the box ; –...

If you are not in the target audience for the Fonepad (namely those who don’t want to carry a phone for calls alongside a tablet for work) then the ASUS tablet will be less appealing. It is, however, a cheap Android tablet you’ll enjoy most of the...

Asus Fonepad Review


I've had the Asus Fonepad for just over 2 days and in that time I've been through the OS, the built-in ASUS applications, downloaded my usual suite of Android apps, I've run a few performance reports and even written a blog post with it. I've tested...

ASUS Fonepad Android tablet


The 7in ASUS Fonepad adds smartphone calling capabilities to a traditional tablet form factor

Almost stock Android UI ; Good battery life ; microSD card slot

Too large to use as a phone ; No 4G connectivity ; Poor cameras

The ASUS Fonepad is a reasonable tablet overall but it's just too large to be used effectively as a smartphone and also lacks 4G connectivity.

Asus Fonepad review


Asus flexes its hybrid muscle once again with a 7-inch tablet that makes calls

Great LED-backlit screen ; microSD storage ; Premium metal chassis ; Good battery life

No rear camera ; Poor speakers ; Nexus 7 cheaper ; Impractical for calls

Asus Fonepad review


Do you desperately want to own a smartphone and a tablet but just don't have the money to afford both? Well the Fonepad might just be the thing for you.

For those genuinely interested in a phablet, the Asus Fonepad is a bit of a bargain. It does the job of two devices for a budget price. However, you'll need to be prepared to make sacrifices including practicality and, in this case, no rear camera and...
