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, 02 Nov 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, 28 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.
Iñigo, 27 Oct 2012jellybean is going to arrive next month and the keyboard before xmas ;)Is the keyboard special to this device? or is it compatible with previous ASUS devices? such as the Eee Transformer Pad series :S ?
Iñigo, 27 Oct 2012jellybean is going to arrive next month and the keyboard before xmas ;)Are you sure of that? about the keyboard dock station. I have not bought the padfone2 yet because that. is not negotiable for me buy it without the chance of keyboard
Well done ASUS. The saving is in not having to have additional sims and data contracts. Just please add card slot, and jelly bean. Truly innovative. From a die hard htc fan, this one made me stop and think. Love the LTE, and design. This innovation brings simplicity. One sim, one place for pics, cloud, one brilliant phone.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2012how come? it's not a necessity, but an additional expenseThe docking station with extra-battery and loudspeakers is an excellent idea !
If they would put a keybord to it - well, that would be the egg of columbus !!!
That would be the NONPLUSULTRA !!!
THEY HAVE TO DO IT !
IF NOT, IT WOULD BE STUPID !!!!!!
there is no way that de keyboard dock will be possible?. Asus dont say anything? On the padfone club, an supposed spokesperson of asus say "is not possible" . Read it and comment http://padfoneclub.com/news.php?extend.36. Thanks for all
Pino, 24 Oct 2012Totally lost interest after I found out it had no SD card slot. Good bye Asus.how come? it's not a necessity, but an additional expense
