Description

Much alike to its flagship sibling, the PadFone X, the PadFone E draws its power from a Qualcomm chip, instead of the usual Intel silicon. Equipped with a quad-core, 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM, we're expecting an adequate user experience, as this configuration has proven potent enough in the past. Other hardware highlights include a 4.7-inch, 720x1280 resolution IPS display with Gorilla Glass for the phone, and a 10.1-inch, 720x1280 resolution screen for the tablet dock.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 312 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
