Note II has the same year old Mali GPU that it used on its flagsh... moreActually note 2 Mali clocked at 400mhz which is faster then older Mali and s3..indeed Samsung use same name chip but inside it are different things. You can't compare Mali in s1 to note 2 Mali...lol
asus you should make a cheaper version of padfone, like using dual core snapdragon s4 but keep using adreno 320 and plastic body. Its too expensive!!!!
No memory card slot and no exchangeble battery :( I hope thet until december Asus will improve it.

xpert, 22 Feb 2013Hi all, I've used this fone since launch 1st Dec 2012 and here's my findings after 4th mont... moreIt also broke my heart too. As I think there is something wrong with the cable that I have too. Can't use micro USB to charge the phone. Seriously disappointed.
I've used this fone since launch 1st Dec 2012 and here's my findings after 4th month.
After upgrade to 4.1.1, there is no sign of significant difference. When I decided to purchase a MHL cable, I find the usual USB which ASUS claim to be compatible however is very loose and even the usual USB charger has charging problem. Resulted in buying another ASUS cable which is more costly than normal USB cable. not to mention the 2A charger which I wanted a spare in my office. (SGD 65 incl the 3pin adaptor)
Later, when I decided that the phone needs more juice, so I switched to fone priority charging, so that most of the power concentrates on the phone but it became warm at first then after sometime, it is always HOT.
Following that, the phone hangs, lags and even the power button does work. There were a series of activities which I do not which one causes this, so I have do the factory reset to start all over again.
Btw, I cant find padfone 2 MHL cable in the market. No suitable screen protector in the market too, got a scratch on my phone although I keep it in a pocket most of the time on its own and make sure there is no metallic or other object with it.
This is a total waste of time and money! ASUS should go back to making motherboard and just do what it does best.
YOU BROKE MY HEART, ASUS!!
Better CPU GPU than Note II. Note II has the same year old Mali GPU that it used on its flagships S3 and S2. Even the quad core Exynos it has is good for nothing compared to a dual core Snapdragon S4. Second thing is the RAM, only international versions on Samsung has 2 GB else have 1 GB RAM.
In Australia, you can buy this (phone only 16GB) for around $500-$600 online. I have seen $499 plus shipping. Pretty good and DEFINITELY worth the extra $100 over nexus 4.
do any one of u know how can i opreate direct WIFI as it dosent work even with other asus device, also NFC dosent work with other devices
I wanna buy a galaxy note 2 but i don' know that it has a better display and hardware or no the asus pad fone 2 has a better hardware?
