Can the pad station be used as a stand-alone tablet without the phone docked in? or it only function when it is docked?
Guys I am not able to decide between padfone 2(without the tablet) and Nokia Lumia 920. For me camera is important. On paper its 13MP but I would like to get a feedback from anyone using this phone. If camera is really good i would go for this..
This phone is a great phone. love the speed and performance but lack of something that quite important
1. cannot make video call
2. while receive message or notification the screen not turn on.
3. don't have flip to mute while receiving phone call
4. call log should merge with messaging log so can view everything in the same page
5. after end call shuold appear message button so can immediately send message to the person we just talked
Really hope Asus will fix on these things
Awesome phone! It's fast, has a great screen, one of the best camera's and a solid body with good looks!
Padfone Station works very well only the screen quality is not as nice compared to the phone, which is offcourse due to the relatively low resolution and therefor lesser PPI (pixel density).
I find it unfortunate that Asus does not have such a big name in smartphone country as of yet because they really do have the potential as a brand and this phone proves it in my opinion!

I know it's 13megapixels but I've seen reviews that say the photos have a 'blue tinge'. As I'm a photo enthusiast this is important to me. Thanks.
Anon, 12 Jan 2013heard been released in Msia. RRP 2799. it comes together with the pad station. in msia the price is rm2599 32GB.. i already have it since 3 weeks ago..
I notice that the specifications display two lots of HSDPA bands. One has only 900/2100, the other has 850/900/1700/1900/2100. Is there a difference in models for different countries?
Just bought this from DWI digital cameras, link below. Purchased on the 26th of December(public holiday), shipped on 2nd of Jan, received on 4th on January. I ended up paying $920AUD(64GB & Pad station) inc express & ins shipping with DHL. So I can vouch for DWI in terms of shipping of the item.
The phone itself is great since I now can use the phone and not have to worry about it dying on me towards end of the night since I work 2 jobs. I am using it with telstra atm since it has LTE. I like the idea I can use the "pad station" to charge the phone when it is connected. You can actually choose other modes to balance the power when docked as well. The Phone itself is great and picked up the jelly bean update as soon as it was connected to my wifi.
I used ES file browser connect to my other devices on my home network and streaming & copying works great. I get speeds upto 1.5MB/s when copying over wifi to the phone.
The phone is nice to handle and doesn't get hot like my HTC velocity. It is speedy and responsive. I just have trouble finding accessories suited specifically for the padfone 2.
The only issue I had was it came as chinese default but is easy to change to english, using youtube video tutorials. End of the day it is a smartphone so real use battery life will suffer since it is a very powerful device. But with the docking station makes it more bearable. And I can actually use it in the tablet mode as well so I don't "need" to carry another device.
Where can I get these phone is South Africa, it seems like the best phone so far.
Just bought it while in Hongkong.
The price for Handheld is HKD 4298/4698/5298 (16GB/32GB/64GB) while the dock station is HKD 1700 if bought with handheld, or HKD 2100 if bought just itself.
I'm super like this padfone 2, it will be replace my gnote2. The specs is super, the display is better than gnote2 in my opinion, overall the best gadget for now. :D
