Asus PadFone

Description

ASUS lifted the veil over its long-awaited redesigned 9.2mm thin PadFone at the MWC. Sporting a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, Snapdragon S4 with the new Adreno 225 GPU, and 8MP camera with LED flash and f/2.2 aperture, as well as 16-64GB of internal storage plus microSD slot, it has what we would expect from a modern high-end. Connectivity is taken care of 42Mbps HSPA+ radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI and A-GPS, while a 1,520mAh battery unit is included as a juicer. The Padfone can get inserted into an optional tablet frame, whose 10.1" screen then gets powered by the phone itself, and can extend your battery life significantly. There is another dock, which allows you to add a detachable keyboard accessory, like on the Transformer Pad series. This one also comes with a stylus that except for doodling can be used to receive your phone calls as well, considering that the phone is inserted in the mothership.

Cons

  • 64GB basic storage (not expandable)
