Definitely love this one (idea especially!) but unfortunately/luckily have to save some cash on motorbike. But maybe in the near future... ;)
if someone want to buy an android phone i think he must buy this one, its the best android phone in the market
gadget_lova, 03 Nov 2012Can anyone confirm?
Is the padfone 2 compatible with 3G and 4G network in USA (especially for... moreJust check out what bands the Padfone 2 has and compare with the TMobile bands needed.
Go to the TMOBILE website and look down the bottom of the fine print it will say it. Otherwise just type in 3g 4g bands for TMOBILE into google...
Anyway.. go to
About half way down there is a table.
It says 3G is 1700 and 2100.
4G LTE is the same starting next year.
peanutz8, 03 Nov 2012I was one of them people that said i would buy it if it had a card slot...bcoz of transfering ... moreCompletely different technology.. You have new A15 quad core with 320GPU.. then its got a much more bright AND accurate screen without that ugly blue tint.
It has LTE as any new phone must.
More raw Android experience.
Samsung is an older phone (still quite good and current) but it will be replaced with S4 in a few months.
If you want the station with one sim card.. pad fone 2.
If you want the latest Tech maybe try SGS4.
If you want an old phone that now has LTE get SGS3 or SGS2 LTE models.
they should change the name of the phone to infinity. Padfone is not a nice name. Infinity name sounds better to consumers. Tablets should be named Infinity 7 and 10 for 7inches and 10 inches variant. Then Infinity to thier phone with alphabets if they will build more than 2 phones. It's just an opinion. ^_^
Its great phone but according asus website this bends not on a list: HSDPA 1700 / 2100
yoda, 02 Nov 2012it support OTG on panel. and support OTG on phone soon.are you sure of that? are you have official information of that?
antonio2santos, 28 Oct 2012Is not compatible , according to spokesperson of asus in padfoneclub.com , the screen station ... moreIf it's like the 1st PadFone , I'm using TF101's keyboard to connect . It isn't perfect as the original dock as the tablet is heavier than TF101 yet it fits nicely . Just that a certain angle , you will find the tablet tilting more than it should . Try Youtube-ing it , there are some ppl trying it out for 1st generation PadFone
Denzo, 02 Nov 2012Its so funny reading GSMArena comments sometimes..

Can anyone confirm?
Is the padfone 2 compatible with 3G and 4G network in USA (especially for T-mobile).
how much will be the price in middle east with the pad???
And what the tentative date of release?
Its so funny reading GSMArena comments sometimes.. A new phone comes out and you have 100s of people saying "I was going to buy it but the battery doesnt come out" and meanwhile in reality the battery is crazy good and last maybe 16 hours of talk time, and recharges over 2 times using the pad. Then people say "I was going to buy it but it has no SD slot.." where in reality, how many people will need more than 16GB data in a day? You even get some cloud storage. If you think everyone uses SD card slots.. I know NO ONE that uses them, and I mean Peers at university, friends at basketball and family. No one cares about this.. if you can fit some mobies and apps great.. who honestly wants to sit there watching a phone for more than 5/6 hours?? Get real. You never were going to buy this phone.
this phone is awesome. My mum turned out she didn't like the iPhone 5 we got her, (blasphemy!) so I had to have a look at what to buy, for me it was either the ONE XL, the ONE X/X+ (either seems good) or this. I decided to go with this cause she is not some big user of internet (either am I) on the phone, so this is perfect. She gets around 1.5GB data on her phone, and she can now use this is TAB function with just one sim card, then when she's finished using it (and charging her phone!) she can take it out and use a cool android!
hui, 30 Oct 2012Good phone, but no OTG, OTG is evrything!it support OTG on panel. and support OTG on phone soon.
Seriously guys. This is by far the best build quality and the best value for money available in the market. I dont understand whats the issue with everyone for a keyboard dock. You just need to wait a bit. There will be plenty of options available. As for those wanting a stupid sd slot. Move on man. Majority of the best phones available dont have an sd slot. Buy a media player wid a 1 tb hdd. Look at what the objective is for this beast.
MrGreen, 27 Oct 2012Is the keyboard special to this device? or is it compatible with previous ASUS devices? such a... moreIs not compatible , according to spokesperson of asus in padfoneclub.com , the screen station requires 2 additional ports to connect with a keyboard like the first padfone . Asus should develop a new keyboard station for that, and this is not a priority for them. The satisfaction of thousends of clients is not a priority... that is fun. Our friends of gsmarena should talk with asus to clarify all whisperings about the keyboard station.
