lc3287, 04 Jul 20121520mAh battery for 4.3inch 540 x 960 pixels Super AMOLED, can this Asus Padfone battery last ... moreBatt does last a day just on the Padfone alone, thats with alot of bluetooth along with browsing texting and calling. Got home and its around 23% left, this is set to High performance mode too so powersaving or balanced mode would be better I assume :-)
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2012this is no way near of galaxy s2.......s2 is far better ......and noumber one phone last year.... moreIt's spelled "Asus".
Asus is anything but cheap, being Samsung the cheap company. That's why you get better prices in comparison to the competition while still having somewhat decent equipment.
That said, the Padfone per se seems somewhat at par to the S2, better processor still mind you, but the core feature of the Padfone is the concept of integrating with a screen to form a tablet, on top of which you can add a keyboard dock for a netbook-ish Android system. No other phone offers you this, and that's the selling concept.
If I just wanted a smarthpone? Suppose I'd get the S2 though. Cheaper, powerful enough, the S3 is clearly overpriced and the quad-core CPU is for now somewhat overrated and unnecessary.

I like the concept, but would prefer the phone to be smaller, lighter and dust/waterproof. The HTC Hero I currently have is already at the top end of what I consider practical for a phone wrt size. My ideal phone has a 3" or smaller screen and weight below 100g, yet has the performance to match a notebook when used with an external screen and BT mouse/keyboard or docked in a pad-enclosure at home.
was a iphone user,as for the padfone. it is quite good. the first few charges did not last too long . but after that it could be quite long. by the way synchronizing the contact from iphone could be difficult. due to the different contact format. but other than that its an fantastic phone.
hey u both gigs of asus and samsung......
Both compnies are great in their product........samsung is now master in mobile and smartphone.....than asus is a huge foot in computer world.......

karl, 17 Jun 2012will the phone's screen get scratch in the long term due to in/out of the tab?That's where the Gorilla Glass comes in.. I have a phone with gorilla glass which i normally keep in the same pocket as my car key, no scratch whatsoever for the past year..
