Got this phone with tablet last month, superb phone & damn good bang for the buck. 3 major peeve though. 1) Battery too low power 2200mah hardly enough to last through a day of decently heavy use. 2) Softkeys at bottom of screen takes up valuable space. 3) Qi charging not working (even ASUS Malaysia has no answer after since purchase till now!). Other than that, a truly great phone. TQ.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2014What is different between padfone x and padfone s?u can compare it in this website ...
1) Since can last 24houts of basic usage (calls n standby), n still left abt 50%, i perzonally think battery is quite alright. 2)My mum dont utilise for video or game, so cannot advise on n wifi/3G usage. 3)Wat i meant is, just standby n do nothing for abt 6hours, when sleeping at night, the battery percentage will drop abt 10%.
JLM, 21 Dec 2014No new feedback from mum, but the below is wat i observed previously. 9)Battery. Whole night ... moreso the battery life is kinda bad then ? but how long is the battery gonna last just by using wifi ? or 3g ? and u said it drop about 10% every night ?
I currently own one of this device with the tablet dock. Overall the device works pretty fine except that the Gorilla Glass isnt as good as those on SAMSUNG & KYOCERA.
BTW this is a single SIM device.
aadam, 20 Dec 2014i wanna ask about the battery life ? is it good ?No new feedback from mum, but the below is wat i observed previously.
9)Battery. Whole night seem to drop abt 10%. For my mum's basic use for calls, it seems to last 1 full day, till next morning which is abt 24hours, still have 55% left. Charging with the original plug n cable seems slow, abt 1% per 2min. Wireless charging for N5 is slower than cable, so same may apply for PF. Wireless charger stated that efficiency is abt 70-80%. So wireless is even slower.
what stylus do you recomend for this padfone and how do i know is the screen has a "wacon feel it tecnology"
LUM, 15 Dec 2014Tis phone will be heat when plying games n charging？？every phone will heat up playing while charging =,=

Anonymous, 10 Dec 2014Seems that padfone s battery endurance rating is higher than xiaomi mi 3 and redmi note even t... morePlease don't believe the hype.
The battery capacity is similar to HTC One(M7) and Galaxy S3.
The rating itself is only performed in controlled condition, so it will not be the same on normal usage.
The phone may stand by longer on idle, but not when the phone is used continuously.
Anyway, install a 3rd party power saver apps will extend the battery life much longer.
