GSM Arena
21 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Asus Padfone 2 is a fine example of the kind of out-of-the-box thinking we like to see from more manufacturers. The hybrid is a unique concept which makes so much sense that we wonder why more OEMs haven't explored it.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, 3G with HSPA; LTE (market dependent), 4.7" 16M-color 720p Super IPS+ capacitive touchscreen display with 312ppi density, Android OS v4.1.1 Jelly Bean, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, Docking station with 1...
  • Cons: Non user-replaceable battery, Mediocre screen quality of the docking station, Non-expandable storage, No camera key

Recombu
16 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Compared the original Padfone, the Padfone 2 is far more usable, prettier, significantly more powerful and more affordable device. Asus have clearly spent care and time over the design refinements, not to mention instilled it with some of the most powerful hardware on the market, but there are a few...
  • Pros: Lightweight, Great battery life, Padfone concept works well
  • Cons: Disappointing camera, No removable storage

Review: ASUS Padfone 2

GameAxis
22 January 2013
  • Excerpt: The second, more polished iteration of ASUS’s iconic Padfone, the ASUS Padfone 2 is less tablet and more phone. The accompanying tablet doesn’t work without the phone docked into it – the tablet is really just an extension of the phone. Read on to find out what I thought of it.

  • Summary: The basics At long last, the Asus PadFone 2 is here. The transforming phone/tablet is on sale in the UK, months after its big reveal last year - and it’s got strong competition, from Android phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to full-on Apple iPads.
  • Pros: Here’s how it works: all the software and processing power is in the phone, which behaves like a normal Android 4.1 smartphone. Slot it into the accompanying tablet though, and all your apps and websites pop open on a larger 10.1-inch display - you can then send text messages and even take calls ...
  • Cons: The Asus PadFone 2 is well executed, but it still lacks a few tech specs to match its rivals. The phone lacks the svelte beauty of rivals like the HTC One, the tablet display’s 1280x800 resolution looks a bit grainy next to a super sharp iPad 4 or Google Nexus 10, and it doesn’t run the latest An...
