Hai all. I want to buy this phone. It's beautifully priced too. Can anyone give a review on camera, battery and durability? Thanks

The LCD screen is very dim and yellowish. It does not have enough contrast compare other fhd lcd screen like honor 6, lg g2. LCD DETAILS is very poor if compare side by side with the above phones. Very disappointed with the lcd quality. My honor 3c hd screen looks better than padfone s fhd screen.
daus, 12 Nov 2014this phone better to play games and support otg or not ?From it's spec, it is more than enough for playing high graphic game.
For sure, it support OTG.
Indeed, all newer Android phone support OTG, even the cheaper one support OTG as well.

The USB contact board chipped in the corner, because the USB cord they provided had not be moulded properly. As their was a small moulding flaw, and there was a piece of the moulding on the inside of the USB cord where the contacts reside. Which I didn't notice until it chipped the phones internal USB connector. The biggest problem is living in New Zealand. ASUS refuse to do anything, because i supposedly broke it myself? While the seller on eBay wants be send the phone blind to taiwan and to devaluate the phone to USD$80 so they can receive it thought customs? This is where is gets real messy. Because let say it gets lost in the post? Who's liable? Me? I would just loose the phone and only get covered USD$80 which is not fair.
As usual, there may be quality issue on ASUS phone and tablet product.
Up to your choice.
The phone alone is sell at Malaysia is only MYR 899 (much more cheaper than Xiao Mi Mi4, Oneplus One)
The tablet dock 8.9" sold at MYR 499. (Full HD, dual front speaker, still lot more cheaper than comparable tablet, with 13MP camera, 2GB RAM, 4G LTE ADVANCE, NFC)
This is just a steal price to beat other brand.
The only verdict is non-removable battery at just mere 2300Mah, but the tablet dock do add battery of 5000Mah,which also will charge the phone, act as powerbank.
Phone + Tablet at just MYR 1398, those who want to upgrade your phone and tablet, now is the time.

Once ever so slightly cracked (almost impossible to tell), the hardware USB connector comes loose in the plastic socket. I was warned about that when I bought the phone. Do not open the phone at the USB connector.

Anyone know the Sar rating?
I really like this phone but need to know the SAR rating before purchasing it.
Purchased a PadFone S in August 2014. The USB port broke within 2 weeks, from only using the provided USB cord. Was a nice phone, just let down majorly by the very poor quality of parts used. Still trying to get it repaired ! As ASUS only covers phones in the country they where purchased from which was Taiwan :/ BUYER BEWARE!
I have one of these, with the tablet/dock. Bought it in Bangkok, Thailand. It must the be most under-rated setup in phone history. Super super sharp HD, and saturated contrast color so crisp it matches the new iPad Air2. The battery holds power far better than a normal Li-On. Extremely snappy in all respects. We have 12 phones (iPhones, Samsung Notes 2&3, HTC Windows, etc, and two Nexus 5s) also have 8 tablets (iPad Air, many androids including two Nexus 7 2013s) in our family here, and... everybody wants to play with this ASUS PadFone S. Amazing.
I'm thinking of buying iphone 6 plus but i came across with this tablet-phone duo.. I'm gonna get this tablet, it only cost half of iphone 6 plus price in my place.. Hehe
