Everyone, this phone is like a Subaru, one of the best cars around that almost no one knows about. I am not really going to talk about the OS, everyone can read about it. However, I will say that I use Tmobile, and this International phone connected well. The ease of taking the phone out of the docking station and using it as a regular phone . . . awesome. The ease of putting the phone into the docking station and using it as a tablet, awesome.
This phone does it all good, very good. Now, the bad, it does not have a stylus, and I wish it did because the aftermarket ones just do not feel right. It is not easy to obtain protective wear for it, so . . . Finally the price, it might be hard to completely justify it. However, by going on the Tmobile phone service, reduced my bill by $650.00 per year, the ability to carry a tablet to meeting, conduct about 3200 text messages a month, and 2400 minutes of talk time per month. I can account for the price.
So whats good about the PadFone 2?
+ The display is excellent with seriously bright backlighting at highest setting and nice colors and black levels. Its IPS+ and has pretty good viewing angles.
+ Light. Because its almost all plastic it feels light but still manages to feel solid at the same time.
+ The camera is awesome for a mobile phone camera! It also records in 1080p.
+ The hardware in this thing is superb, sporting 2 gigabytes of RAM, a Snapdragon S4 processor and Adreno 320 GPU.
+ The battery life, especially with the tablet, is good considering its performance. The battery on my PadFone lasts on average 36 hours of average use. The fact that the tablet can charge the phone while you use it is a huge plus as well!
+ Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and the standard user interface free of branded clutter. Well, almost free anyhow.
+ Phone and tablet share hardware, so it does'nt need a separate SIM-card. Its also one less gadget to carry with you and synch files and apps to.
So what about the not-so-good?
- Hot! This thing gets real warm under heavier workloads, even going so far as to get hot when used docked in the tablet.
- Non-standard USB. Sure, they threw in an adapter for micro-USB but this will still mean that extra cables will probably be expensive and/or a pain to find.
NOTE!!: Regular micro-USB WILL fit in the port and seems to charge the unit. I have however heard people say that this might damage the port if one is not careful.
- There is a minor bug where apps disappear from the taskmanager when docked and vice versa. I also encountered a system crash in camera-mode but it only happened once or twice.
All in all this is a really nice phone that happens to come with a pretty good tablet that offers you a lot of interesting sollutions. After testing it out for a week I found the phone to be much better than my old HTC One X since the former runs better due to superior hardware specs and its user interface is regular Jelly Bean as opposed to HTC's "Sense" which tends to be a regular pocket-sized bloatware-festival. Considering the price this might not be the best choice for those who just want a phone and could do without the tablet, but if you appreciate the benefits of the phone/tablet-hybrid and are looking for a tablet as well as a phone, you'd be hard pressed to find a better option right now.
I have only used it over the weekend, so this is not complete review, and I'll keep it short.
- The station is light, while the phone is just heavy enough. It feels a bit more massive than the S3.
- The screens on the phone and station are crisp.
- Everything runs fast and smooth. Though, I have not installed alot of apps.
- The screen and touchbuttons on the phone are just a bit too close. I often, mistakenly hit the homebutton instead of space (I use Swiftkey).
- Whenever you dock the phone, and pull it back out, background apps restart. I use Timeriffic to automatically change a few settings. This will close and function until I manually start it up again. (This I have found a solution for: settings -> asus customized settings -> Dynamic Display Switch List)
It runs vanilla Android, which in my opinion is a huge plus. The few apps ASUS has bundled seem ok, but I have not used them.
