ASUS Fonepad Review


We review ASUS Fonepad, which is their 7-inch tablet which can double as a display.

as they can offer you a much better experience than the Fonepad can.

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...

Asus Fonepad Review


Is it a phone or is it a tablet? Well, it is a little bit of both, actually. Here we have the Asus Fonepad – a 7-inch Android slate with 3G connectivity and an earpiece allowing it to make phone calls. It is a peculiar device, to say the least, yet...

Solid build quality ; microSD card slot ; 3G connectivity for cellular data ; Can make phone calls, send/receive text messages

Not powerful enough for serious gaming

Although it can make calls and send text messages, the Asus Fonepad is clearly not an ideal smartphone replacement, although you can totally use it as one. Just bear in mind that the tablet isn't made to be carried in a pocket, obviously, and its call...

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.

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...

Vodcast – ASUS Fonepad discussion with Mobile Geek Nicole


Nicole Scott of also has an Asus Fonepad so we got together in a live Google Hangout this morning to discuss it. We talk about the features, make a lot of comparisons to the Nexus 7 and give you an idea of who this tablet is designed...

If this was being sold as a linux tablet, the intel cpu would not be such a hinderance, but for Android OS, its just pointless. save your money and get something with an ARM cpu (ASUS makes a nice one for less than this costs). ASUS makes fine...

not bad for what it is, though not as good as a ARM cortex, AMD, or Qualcomm cpu

Intel cpu, Intel integrated graphics. could do way better with a ARM cortex chip and mali400 gpu or an AMD APU (chip with graphics processor built in). Intel chips tend to run slower than ARM chips on Android OS, and produce more waste heat than either...

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: Hands-on


The Asus Fonepad is 7-inch tablet that you can use as a phone. T3 went in for a closer look at the new Android device

At first glance, the Fonepad looks like a fairly standard 7-inch tab that's unlikley to worry the likes of the iPad Mini or take sales away from the device's Nexus 7 stable mate. And while, the ability to make voice calls is an interesting inclusion,...
