Asus Padfone

thinkdigit.com
20 December 2012
  • Summary: 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 to house it, giving it a lifespan of two days. If you are in the market to pick up a smartphone, you can get the iPhone 5 in this budget, or an iPad and a decent Android smartphone.
  • Pros: Great build, Three in one gadget, Good camera, Good display, Very easy switching between phone and tablet mode, Good battery life
  • Cons: Lacklustre keyboard on the smartphone, Ultra glossy display, Not for everyone, Expensive

Review Asus PadFone Smartphone

Notebookcheck
5 November 2012
  • Summary: 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 double is capable of in view of the upcoming market launch of the PadFone 2. Can the smartphone and its tablet casing score as a power duo?
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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

Phone Arena
14 August 2012
  • Conclusion: 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 creates a category of its own. But with this in mind, we should note that the PadFone is not a concept - it is an absolutely real device now, sold for real money.
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: Tablet is way too bulky, Overpriced, Pen stylus might not be such a good idea

Taking the phone / tablet debate to a new level

theverge.com
6 June 2012
  • Summary: After spending time with the PadFone, I believe more than ever that it's the future. Maybe not the PadFone specifically, but at least its concept: your phone as the hub of all your data, files, and apps, and pieces available to you for your particular needs. If you're mobile, just bring the phone. Need to answer a lot of emails? Drop it into the dock and type away. Want to watch a movie? Connect the PadFone Station and enjoy a much larger, more shareable screen.
  • Pros: Fantastic modular design concept, Great performance in phone mode, Lots of useful accessories, Incredible battery life
  • Cons: Tablet performance is lacking, Unremarkable displays, Ecosystem quickly gets heavy and cumbersome

Phone meets tablet: Asus PadFone reviewed

Gadget Guy
30 September 2012
  • Summary: Asus may be onto something with the PadFone, and for a first generation product, it’s not a bad idea. That said, it’s certainly not for everyone, and we’d probably wait for a second-generation before ultimately deciding.
  • Pros: Great battery life, Cool concept, Comes with a combined Bluetooth headset and stylus
  • Cons: Feels cheap, Two different types of charge port: one for the phone (microUSB), one for the tablet (Asus proprietary), Tablet requires the phone to work, Tablet is very heavy, Holding a stylus up to your ear makes you look insane
