Asus launched its next generation Padfone yesterday, which steps up the specs of the previous edition. The latest Asus Padfone Infinity is equipped with a 13-megapixel F/2.0 rear camera along with a 2-megapixel F/2.0 front facer.
The Asus Padfone Infinity's camera can record full HD 1080p videos at 30fps and does up to 100 shots in burst mode at 8fps. On top of these, the Padfone Infinity has an extra bright F/2.0 lens, which allows more light in.
We snatched some camera samples off the Padfone Infinity units on display at the MWC and we can't wait to show them to you.
The dynamic range of the latest Padfone's camera looks about average for a phone camera, but the contrast and the colors are quite pleasant and give the photos a pretty balanced look. We also spotted some good levels of resolved detail in the outdoor shots in good light.
The 13 MP camera's low light performance was pretty good too - as evident from the night shot of the building (ISO 400). Surprisingly, the images at ISO 800 were pretty usable too (the stuffed octopus and the pana cotta dessert, or whatever that is).
The images at ISO 800 had an amazingly low levels of noise, but looked quite soft at 100%. Other than that, they looked just fine when fit to a screen.
Overall, the Padfone Infinity's camera is surely a step up from the Padfone 2's camera in all respects possible.
No, by the time it arrives in Europe/UK that's in somewhere in May, the price of this devices should hover around £569-599.
You seem pretty sure that the pictures in the phone were snapped by the Padfone itself.. what makes you so sure it wasn't snapped any something else?
If you get a tablet and a phone full price (32GB), you're looking at $1400/1500. This is a $1000...Well worth it in my opinion.
