have been using this fone for a few weeks now, apart from the sometimes faulty battery icons, the fone is very snappy! and i disagree that it's a midrange fone. the S4 working underneath ROCKS! and for the concept itself, yup, i agree that it is heavy but it's a very fine concept! i've seen a few Moto Atrix guys who tried a similar concept likes this. so for those naysayers, try it first b4 judging it, the concept provides flexibility, and it delivers! when u hv 2 gadgets, u must bring the both of them out everytime, with Padfone, u HAVE the option to only bring 1! that's flexibility!

I don't think this concept will catch on.

The phone it self is OK but defiantly not high end.

The tablet is WAY too thick.

When you can use HOTSPOT instead I would rather a better phone and something like the transformer prime.

I don't have an S3 though, nor plan to, since it's an expensive phone carrying features I'm likely not to use. The quad-core is cute, but too much power that not all applications are ready to use, wireless charging is moot for me, and there are S2 variants with the NFC chip so all in all the S2 is more than sufficient.

This may be a stupid question/s 1. In laptop mode can I connect a printer (I've never printed off an Android device) just like with a windows laptop? 2. In laptop mode can I connect an LCD projector (RGB adaptor)? 3. In Laptop mode can I connect a usb stick and or an external USB drive (How many USB ports does it have)? 4. I assume there is no dvd drive, can I connect 1 through the usb port? 5. Can this device replace my windows laptop (Dell inspiron) if not what are the drawbacks?

Got home and its around 23% left, this is set to High performance mode too so powersaving or balanced mode would be better I assume :-)

Asus is anything but cheap, being Samsung the cheap company. That's why you get better prices in comparison to the competition while still having somewhat decent equipment.

That said, the Padfone per se seems somewhat at par to the S2, better processor still mind you, but the core feature of the Padfone is the concept of integrating with a screen to form a tablet, on top of which you can add a keyboard dock for a netbook-ish Android system. No other phone offers you this, and that's the selling concept.

If I just wanted a smarthpone? Suppose I'd get the S2 though. Cheaper, powerful enough, the S3 is clearly overpriced and the quad-core CPU is for now somewhat overrated and unnecessary.

I like the concept, but would prefer the phone to be smaller, lighter and dust/waterproof. The HTC Hero I currently have is already at the top end of what I consider practical for a phone wrt size. My ideal phone has a 3" or smaller screen and weight below 100g, yet has the performance to match a notebook when used with an external screen and BT mouse/keyboard or docked in a pad-enclosure at home.

The top half of the phone looks practically like an iPhone.

was a iphone user,as for the padfone. it is quite good. the first few charges did not last too long . but after that it could be quite long. by the way synchronizing the contact from iphone could be difficult. due to the different contact format. but other than that its an fantastic phone.
