I would like to write a short review about Asus A10:
I purchased it 10 days before for corporate use and this is my first SMARTPHONE. I used Blackberry 8900 which is not comparable to this one.
Here is the + & - of Asus A10.
First will go with Advantages, because it's very few:
Everyone likes the model.
Great GPS Navigation.
Not a bad audio quality
As expected, Android OS is working great.
Screen will go dead, if you press lock (power) button when you are on call. Only way you can revert is remove the battery and putting it back.
Bad Camera quality when compared to Sony 2 Megapixel and this comes with 5 MP.
VERY POOR Battery backup.
No car mounting stand (not sure whether we could get the compatible one in the outside market)
Bluetooth connection drops down and could send a 150 kb file from my computer.
Since the touch screen is very sensitive, the speaker is turning on and off when you are on call.
No leather case(cover) comes with phone.
Above to all this, When I called ASUS INDIA Support to configure GOOD (for corporate emails) they said person who deals with Smartphone is on leave and will be back only on Monday. Just think what will happen if you are travelling and something happens in between. :-(
Caution: Forget buying this phone if you are going to use this for Corporate network and frequent travelling.
If you are watching this opinions, please think about improving your quality of Support, if you really want to sustain in mobile market.
I am ready to provide my contact details, if you really want to research on the issues reported.
Hope this helps to buyers!
Great phone especially as i use GPS a lot. Only problem i have had is the Wifi doesnt work. When i turn it on it just keeps scanning. Any body else had this issue? Is there a setting i dont have correct?
Hi there,every now and then when im writing a text message of brwosing the net the phone will either just go back to the hom screen or open up the widgets menu. Then the home,menu and return buttons will not work. Sometimes the phone wont even go into stand by when i push the off button. Just wondering how i can fix this? Thanks!
Camera in my opinion is no better or worse than any other mobile phone I have owned and lets face facts at the price this phone is being sold for the camera is exactly what I would expect .
aqiel, 25 Nov 2010this phone has a bad camera?Ya! The camera very lousy. Just like a cheap webcam
Have dropped my A10 and screen has broken. Anyone know whether its fixable?
Basically everything that i need from an android phone. Even better for drivers like me who needs a GPS system. Do not need to buy a Portable Navigation Device again. Looks good too.

I recently purchased Garmin-asus a10 with 2.1 eclair.
I experience this already said problem of 'screen goin blank wen u dail a number'. please do come up with some solutions . The software upgrade provided in thr website is for 1.6 version, so dnt know wot to do, plz help.
Just an update regarding the fix for the current software problem we are experiencing with our A10 units.
ASUS are currently working on a tool to downgrade the software on your A10 back to 3.5.7. The expected release date for this tool is early next week.
Although the fix will solve the issues we have been having, it is likely that all contact and phone information will be lost in the downgrade. I suggest running a backup using the PC Sync software which is available off the Garmin-Asus site.
I apologise for the delay.
Hi. I have imported all my contacts over but when i retstarted the phone all the contacts went dissapeared.
Why is this happening? How can i make sure all the contacts stay after swutching the phone off?
crexmas, 10 Nov 2010A few are askin about a home screen replacement. Ive paid for a lot to trial and after all tha... moreI can't find that adw.launcher anywhere. Android Market says it isn't there. Anyone else able to find it? Am I doing something wrong?
Also, after the upgrade to the firmware, when I go to unlock the phone (double-pressing) the touch screen isn't always responsive. This is the only instance it isn't responsive. Was fine before the upgrade. Anyone else experience this?
