ASUS PadFone review

 

It's been a long ride for the PadFone. ASUS' last smartphone was the Android 2.1-powered A10 from two years ago, then five months later the company ended

Inventive design ; Superb battery life ; Good value for three form factors ; Preloaded with many handy apps

Heavy and chunky ; Dynamic Switching not widely compatible

The ASUS PadFone is a remarkable piece of work and its unique transformation will catch people's attention. It just needs a diet and some software fixes.

New Asus PadFone one-ups itself with Snapdragon 800, microSD (hands-on)

 

The new Asus PadFone isn't available in the US, but with its Snapdragon 800 processor and impressive build quality, we're scratching our heads as to why.

Asus PadFone review

 

Until I held it my hands, I almost didn't believe it was a real product. The Asus PadFone has been shown a number of different times over the last 12 months, and though it's finally available in Taiwan after a big reveal at Mobile World Congress, the...

Fantastic modular design concept ; Great performance in phone mode ; Lots of useful accessories ; Incredible battery life

Tablet performance is lacking ; Unremarkable displays ; Ecosystem quickly gets heavy and cumbersome

Better than I expected, not as good as I hoped

Asus PadFone

 

Product not yet reviewed by PCMag Editors.

Capable phone that transforms into tablet, sharing data and applications.

Tablet is a bit heavy. We don't know how much this will cost.

Mixed double. An Android smartphone and tablet in one - will that work? Asus is the first manufacturer to release a combined solution, dubbed PadFone, which is to kill both birds with one stone on the market. We also ask ourselves what this mixed...

High total weight, Screen stutters occasionally, Poor viewing angle stability, Average screen conditions in outdoor use, The PadFone's good-looking and pleasant-to-the-touch exterior

High total weight, Screen stutters occasionally, Poor viewing angle stability, Average screen conditions in outdoor use, A second PSU so that both devices can be recharged separately and at the same time

Asus PadFone Review

 

The Asus PadFone is a pretty unique device – it's a combination of a phone and a tablet chassis, powered by that phone. The idea is that you already have huge processing power in your handset, so why need to buy another device with similar specs when...

Brings a brave idea to reality ; Zen design on PadFone looks and feels top notch ; Solid performance on both phone and station, snappy switching between the two

Tablet is way too bulky ; Overpriced ; Pen stylus might not be such a good idea

The Asus PadFone is the first attempt to bring to life an exciting idea. The idea of having just one device powering your computing needs. And we love that notion. Despite what Asus achieved with the PadFone, this attempt alone is worth applause - it...

Asus PadFone Review

 

As a concept the PadFone works well. It tries to bring the best of three worlds in one device, but at what cost? Rs. 65,000 is a little expensive. We like the idea of using the pen as the phonem but there is no place in the tablet or the keyboard dock...

Great build, Three in one gadget, Good camera, Good display, Very easy switching between phone and tablet mode, Good battery life

Lacklustre keyboard on the smartphone, Ultra glossy display, Not for everyone, Expensive

Asus PadFone Review

 

Asus makes good innovations and products, but this one feels very premature. Individually, they are great products but when you put everything together, it isn't as ideal as it seems.

Asus Padfone Review

 

It’s a good device but in my opinion, it’s not for everyone. You can get the PadFone + Station + Dock + Stylus for about RM 3,000 or so but there are notebooks and Ultrabooks for less than RM 3,000. In my case, I already have a phone that I adore so...
