Excerpt: This tablet gives great advantages it is complete functional mobile plus 7'' tablet with big screen and multimedia capabilities. Also Asus provide great ad-ons software. Finally, I like this phablet that it is a solution for all problems.
Excerpt: Why spending so much money for buying a big screen mobile phone when you can buy a fonepad with 240€ only. Intel Atom is super fast even for intensive applications. Some reviewers are trying to make potential buyers to feel that some models are underpowered but this is not true for fonepad. In every day use is fast as a Note 8 or nexus. GPS app is running like a charm no locks super fast if you consider that it runs on 1280 x 800 pixels.
Summary: ASUS Fonepad is taking concept of phablets to a new level. A 7" phone. What ?! This review is for 16 GB, camera ASUS fonepad. The one listed here is 8 GB. It does not state if it has camera or not.. +++++++ PLUS ✔ 2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900; 3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100; MicroSIM ✔ phone quality is great, had a 2 hour conference call and never dropped the call on AT&T ✔ Unlocked phone, tablet, data plan everything clubbed into one.
Excerpt: Great as a large format moblie smart phone. Having a large screen to use while on the go, normally always waiting on others, phone allows me to browse and be productive without having to squint, then make a call or two, social connecting all on a device big enough to make it enjoyable.
Summary: Thought the idea of a tablet with phone ability sounded a good idea but in reality neither work that well the screen becomes hard to unlock and there doesn't appear any way of transferring to the as card. Also very slow downloading speed with the single speed processor.
Pros: price phone 3g battery life tablet spec cheap price
Cons: poor screen slow freezes up cannot trasnfer to sd card no camera sealed battery poor aftersales
Summary: I have big hands and wear reading glasses and this is just perfect. fits my work suit jacket pockets perfectly and doubles as a reader on journeys. Wi-Fi for work and holidays (maps and location etc) excellent. Priced to perfection - and if you're embarrassed by putting a 'big phone' to your ear stick with the comfort of herds.
Pros: for this price you expect competent - but it was delightful
Summary: Ihave now stopped using my laptop over last 3 weeks of ownig a Fonetab. I can use it with a usb keyboard, mouse , 64gb flash drive and powered 3.5 500gb hard drive without the need ^for a powered hub. I will be getting a powered hub so I can plug in my 2.5in portable hd. I can sit out on the grass and use the internet to see if I am goinbng to be rained on using giffgaff. I can sit in bed and read a book. Hard tobe without it to be honest.
Pros: clear screen, 2 core processor(Odd reviewer says 1), no fuss opperating system, Giffgaff £12 UNLIMITED INTERNET, otg so can connect anything thats usb, cost £180 so not afraid to use it everywhere...
Cons: when I find something I will update this. Only had it a 3 weeks.
Summary: Asus have a great new concept here & I'm sure others will follow the phablet trend as u can keep one device only & no need for add ons u can use all your free data!its very close to the nexus...same housing almost & screen but has intel chip which is another first for android tabs!i only had the thing 3 days but love it not been near my iPad!my iPhone 5 is very problematic & this look at android is very good...sorry iOS for now Asus is my new toy!
Pros: Superb build quality,free data on giffgaff for £12-can just have one device also quite good screen & performance once u tweak it up
Cons: Gorilla Glass Grease magnet -smudges so easily
