I have mine for almost a week now and all i can say is i am very happy with it. battery life on the phone is decent. docking the phone to the tablet it will take 2 seconds to load fully. you can set the behavior of the battery on the tablet if you want to charge the phone or just use the battery of the tablet. camera is quite good never tried the video recording on it yet. still have to test playing heavy games on it. the sound quality of the speaker is good. the display for me is very nice it feels like HTC one x. call quality is good, never tried speakerphone on it yet. touchscreen response is good. only thing i just notice is you can't transfer your apps to the sd card, it doesn't have the menu on the setting to transfer to sd card, tried already some apps but doesn't support the phone. hopefully some developers make an app on it.
using it as a tablet feels like a whole different experience as it behave as a tablet and not a phone. the home screen changes from 4 shortcut icons (phone) to 6 shortcut icons (tablet). display is not top notch but still good. really loved sending sms on the tablet cause it has split screen on it.
there is still a lot of things i still need to explore and learn from the phone and tablet. will try to post again my user experience on it also the benchmark as it can help other people. this is just based on my use, hopefully gsmarena would make a full review on it.
coming WHEN!? tired of waiting this and I am so close to getting a nexus tablet or a Note 3 now...
gions, 19 Jan 2014Will the tablet work without inserting phone in it? No, the phone contains the entire OS? The benefits of this:
1. You never need to synch the devices.
2. You only need one account/SIM card, instead of two, as you normally would for a phone and tablet.
3. The tablet can actually be used to charge the phone.

>Jan05/2014: phone turn to be a brick
>Jan06/2014: service center (SHA-PRC) informed me that the warranty expired on Nov2013 (policy 1 year from Man.Date).
>Called the hotline (CN): they granted me an offset of 3 months after the man.date. So I requested.the hotline to informe the service center. After 5mim hotline called me to inform that the offset only offered to purchases in PRC and not Taiwan (probably purchased Feb2014).
> Jan10/2014: service center informed that the MBoard needs to be changed (cost 1,800rmb = 2,200hkd > new infinity cost 3,500hkd)

oms, 27 Dec 2013one question please: if I wanna play a game, let's say Real Racing, I have to install it on bo... morehey, I think you misunderstood something here, you just have your apps, games etc. on the phone, the "tablet" is only a screen extension with no cpu/gpu in it. So you install all your nice things on the phone, plug it in and have fun on the 7 inch screen.
one question please: if I wanna play a game, let's say Real Racing, I have to install it on both, the phone and the dock tablet? Thank You!
Hi,friends.Except the google masterpiece nexus7-2013 full support and upgrading,I really know nothing about the asus care and support!The written specifications hints that it must be a good mid-range 7 inches tablet smartphone in definitations!I myself if i want to buy for example,don,t hurry and wait for the top gsm commentators to write an expertly comment plus pros and cons of the device,then I decide to buy!Pre-judgements many times cause irreversible losses and damages!?Ofcourse people are free to buy and it,s my-self scientific opinion not to buy with the closed eyes!Please read one of the gsm monthly published magazine translated in many languages and see your knowledge opinions change and views about the products when you see factswritings!Please becareful of some faked famous phone sites that for the reasons give misinformation to impose a garbage for good!?All together this good mini has an affordable price!Let us when it comes to market!Merry christmas,best new year to all+more gsm factwritings!!?
