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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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

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

  • Summary: A stunningly clever design combining smartphone and tablet that sadly feels a little too "first generation" to be recommended.

  • Summary: It’s not unusual for people to have both a smartphone and a tablet but Asus has united these two products like never before with the Padfone. As it’s name suggests the device is actually two products in one – a tablet and a phone and they literally fit together like a hand in a glove.
