Reviews for the Asus New Padfone

85% Review Asus New Padfone Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Duo. Asus offers the fourth generation of its tablet-smartphone combination with the New Padfone. There has been enough time to improve every aspect of the concept and get rid of initial problems, but was the manufacturer successful?

Das new Padfone ist die interessanteste Variante eines Tablets seit Langem. Wem der gleichzeitige Betrieb eines Smartphones und eines Tablets zu umständlich ist, der sollte sich auch vom stolzen Preis des Komplettsets nicht von einer Anschaffung abbringen lassen.

10.1, 5.0":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
