Bought two ASUS phones in my life and the Padfone S is a great improvement. However the touchscreen experiences is one of the worse I ever had. It's very sensitive to water so your hands have to be perfectly free of water before you touch it. Plus there are cases where when the touchscreen doesn't work or barely works.
I would avoid this phone.
Now if the coming Zenfone 2 is a lot pricier than my budget would allow, I will consider this as alternative. Any suggestions?
Hi for Padfone user how long it take to charge the phone from 20 to 100% ? Does the padfone support fast charging? i read it slow to charge
pete pete, 07 Feb 2015been using this phone for about 3 months, is a very good phone compare to its class (more bett... moreThe speaker is able to produce great high quality sound but the volume is on the quite site. Not to say it is very low but will not able to satisfy demanding music lovers. S5 sounds a lot louder.
z, 17 Feb 2015How about the battery usage. Is this phone is good? How about the price at Malaysia ?Call, Sms and light wifi browsing lasts for 3 days and less (half sccreen brigthness, no auto brightness.) Standby is OK if not great. Playing games, heavy browsing lats for 1 day and less. I bought this about 1.5 months ago at RM 849.

The Padfone S by Asus is good. Flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset in here, and I have been using it for quite some time. Very little lag, and not to mention the fast 4G experience, can download stuff quite fast. Nice screen quality and weight. The only cons are the accessories for the phone is limited, compared to its ZenFone counterparts. And the battery life is average, with heavy usage, it can last at most half a day. Good phone, great specs for its price. Recommend to buy.
No update until this april. Are they buzy on developing lollypop for this asus padfone s?
Anyone knows where to buy the Padfone S?I ask it because in Portugal is not for sale. I don't want to buy it on ebay,amazon,etc...,i want a website with 100% confidence that sell only new mobile phones.Thank you
at the same price, this phone out-perform samsung, not to mention iphone is out of league, at this price you only can get slow rusty iphone 4 wahaha
only zte blade can rival this phone
I've been using the Padfone's Indonesian edition but unfortunately negated feature for wireless charging. And for 900MHz LTE 4G connection not all operators can be connected. I hope the relevant renewal ASUS center giving update system for the 4G connection
kevin, 02 Feb 2015Will padfone S received lollipop update?Yes, it will get Lollipop update on April!!!
been using this phone for about 3 months, is a very good phone compare to its class (more better than S5, my brother use S5-always hang!). speed fast, camera good, sd-card support, speaker loud and can hold within one hand (palm). $$ vs time vs usage.
the padfone s is the best but i have a problem in that device.
