ASUS Transformer Prime: Review
18 June 2013
Summary: The ASUS Transformer Prime tablet can be safely considered to be the top of the moment, especially part because it is the first ever to mount a quad-core processor and one of the first to have Android 4.0.
Pros: Quad-core processor, front camera, Full HD Movies, memory card reader; Gyroscope.
Conclusion: We can’t make our minds up if this is more tablet than laptop or vice versa, but we can be sure of is that this is a great all round piece of kit that also looks the part. It’s packing one of the best keyboard docks we’ve seen and is supremely powerful thanks to the quad-core architecture.
Pros: Powerful Processor. Beautiful screen. Great specs, Transforms into netbook with keyboard dock
Cons: Currently not shipping with Ice Cream Sandwich, but will get an update
Summary: Overall though, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime is our favourite tablet. The Android OS isn't quite as fluid as the iPad's iOS, but the keyboard makes it a much more usable proposition, while still offering a slim and stylish platform when you just want to relax and read or browse the internet.
Summary: It may be getting on, but don't underestimate the Prime
Pros: Light and portable, Highly readable screen, Fast processor, Smooth HD video, Great for games, We liked the Tegra 3 processor on this tablet - it's fast and nimble, speeding up the whole operating system. HD movies played smooth and fast, without the typical stuttering (for the most part) of other...
Cons: Average camera, Screen not as good as Galaxy Tab 10.1, Minor recording bugs, Still pricey, We're fans of the IPS display tech, because it means getting more use out of tablets in a variety of lighting conditions and at a side viewing angle, but it means the Prime's screen is slightly less colourf...
Summary: Elegantly designed with an aluminium chassis and the clean, minimalist Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, this is the classiest, best built Android tablet around Email, web and media is all easy to set up and use, and once you load on your email and social accounts, the tablet is your ultimate one-stop...
Pros: Quad-core performance is evident in slick transitions and program multitasking, high-quality keyboard for emails, high-spec cameras, desktop-like browser
Cons: Keyboard’s trackpad is over sensitive, not much quad-core optimised software yet
Excerpt: The Asus Transformer Prime is a 10.1-inch Android-powered tablet with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and 1GB RAM, plus at least 32GB of internal storage. Its default operating system is Android 3.2 Honeycomb but an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is available.
Summary: Lighter and thinner yet more powerful than most rivals, the world’s first quad-core tablet sports a stunning screen, gorgeous design and comes with a keyboard dock.
Pros: Thinner and lighter than most, Gorgeous, super-bright IPS screen, Quad-core yet excellent battery life, Keyboard dock adds connectivity and battery, Full HD video plays smoothly
Cons: Dock’s keyboard inferior to original Transformer, Metal finish relatively smudge-prone and slippery, Top-heavy docked design requires care on lap, Poor speaker positioning, App selection still inferior to iPad, No 3G (yet)
