specs is super tip-top but the battery is horrible .. asus should take note for the battery ..
The only difference I can find with this device is the chipset itself.
its a tad bit better, but from what I heard from the Padfone X it can short circut itself and fry its modem.
Now I hope this does not have such a problem and it looks like there isn't for this model.
dk, 09 Oct 2014My only worries are the battery.can it even last a day of usageI have one, if you keep playing games, it can only last for 6 hours.
does the display-docs sold separately? or should i buy it in package?
pls sold the additional items as taiwan too!
AnonD-294985, 16 Aug 2014Help me understand what you meant by "insert the phone into the tablet"The phone comes with a tablet that is powered by the phone itself. The tablet acts like a docking station that basically projects the phone into a 10 inch screen.
AnonD-280512, 01 Aug 2014Is it going to be $199USD? What about Malaysia? Probably the price is not gonna be the same. ... moreHi,I am a PadFone 2 user, also interested in PadFone S. I had confirmed with Asus Malaysia. PadFone S will be released in Malaysia but the date and price still not yet determined. Asus Fone is innovation but the quality for the first batch is usually problematic. My word of advice: buy it a few months after released.
I've had mine for a couple of weeks now. AT&T is the provider. Cost for the phone and tablet was, indeed, $199. You can also purchase it for prepaid use for $549.
So far, excellent. The only issue I had was when I would insert the phone into the tablet with the swipe to unlock feature on, it would freak out and require I reboot. Turn off the swipe to unlock...no problems (although I do, now, accidentally pocket dial people from time to time). This is likely a simple software fix I hope to see from Asus soon.
Call quality is excellent. The phone is extremely fast. Even the tablet is very fast with the phone inserted (its a dumb screen without the phone). Screen quality is outstanding. Best of all my devices (which includes iPad rentia and Asus Nexus 7 2nd gen). I'll likely sell these off now.
Camera quality is also excellent. The software is easy to use and captures great pictures and video. The ability to shoot up to 100 pictures, very rapidly, is a blast.
Good battery life (not crazy good though...I have not problem getting through the day, but you'll definitely need to charge up every night).
I've been waiting for this form factor for years and this is it. The only thing I would change is to make the tablet screen bigger (its still good at 9 inches) and make it thinner with the phone inserted (I know...that's a tough one...betcha they get there in a few years though).
I give it an 8.5 - 9 out of 10.
Is it going to be $199USD? What about Malaysia? Probably the price is not gonna be the same.
Does it work smoothly?
Please people, tell me. Is it even gonna be available here in Malaysia, knowing that it's AT&T?
And if it will be, will the price be the same? What would it be, then? Where can I get it from?
Very clever choice, but if it has the same battery life as padfone infinity, lets go for something else...every 2-3 hours it needs charging !!!
Does the Padfone S have the same LTE chip and cellular bands as the Padfone X? Will the Padfone S work in the US on AT&T?
It really needs 3GB of RAM and at least 32GB of storage (the SD Card is mostly worthless with the changes in KitKat), but I think I could live with the Padfone S since it doesn't have all the bloatware that AT&T adds to the system!
What the different between padfone s and padfone x? Will both release in Singapore? Where can I get it?
I currently work for corporate Att and I do use this on a daily Basis. the battery seems to be fine.the tablet itself has a battery that charges the phone while you're using it which also makes it really convenient. it runs just as smooth as my Samsung Note 3.my only downfall for this device is there is a very very slight lag On the tablet when playing action games.
Well, tablet usability aside the entry for the padfone X is a little late. Think Nexus,S5,HTC m8, 1+1 to name a few.
Skipping Asus models for now, until they sort out their after sales support I will not be recommending any of their phones.
Ex-padfone 2 user.
Finally a decent tablet phone.
The only thing is it would be nicer if it was an 8 inch tablet instead of 9 and in a all in one device so it doesn't have to be that heavy.
Shame on Samsung, because this year it finally added high end screan and LTE to its tablets but disabled GSM calls!
