My padfone s plus. 64gb/3gb.
Heating issue. It generates more heat than my wife 2 yearold galaxy s3 even using it for about 10 min of camera, web browsing. It feels uncomfortable when we put the heated phone in pocket.
Camera review. Not a good front (selfie) camera. Very poor picture quality. But the back camera is quite good. In automatic setting only can set 3M (4:3) and 2M (16:9) only. U will get 10M if set to other options.

U can update it manually by downloading the update zip file form Asus support webpage if u didn't receive it through OTA, maybe this can solve our problem. I did not experience any random restart in previous kit kat firmware.

Since firmware WW.11.18, I encountered restart by itself. First happened in Dec 12, 2015 when I was YouTube (restarted when I started to stream, was connected to portable WiFi). Second, happened in Dec 16, 2015, when I was typing in WPS Office.
rasin, 15 Dec 2015Why you didn't buy the s plus one?I bought Padfone S without docking. In my country the sales have two types: first one with docking (more expensive), second without docking (cheaper). And I paid for USD 170,82 only (converted from Indonesia Rupiah). The Padfone S Plus with docking was USD 281,554 (converted from Indonesia Rupiah).
So I chose cheaper type, limited budget.
Quite a nice phone. The only problem was the battery life. Upgraded to CM12.1 and it works like a charm.
I have used Asus Padfone S for 4 days now. Very good for the performance, camera is nice. Almost seldom experience lag, a very little late open an application may happen, but it is Ok, overall is very good. I like this Padfone S. I updated to WW 11.10.17 firmware of KitKat manually on my Padfone S, it had shown 4G icon, previously in firmware 11.10.15 no LTE network choice. Typing is very good and I can type fast.
For battery, is average, I play game for several hours, did internet Facebook, in 4 hours of use, the battery remains 17% of 100%. All many Android smartphones I had testes and tried like this. Even I had used Samsung Galaxy Note II, played game much for 4 hours, the battery was about should be charged.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2015Guys how is the camera quality on this device? I really want to buy itThe camera is nice and good to see too. It has 4K video recording.
Anyone can make any different in the S+ vs S on the battery endurance?
S+ has bigger RAM 3GB(S+) vs 2GB(S).

Robert, 14 Nov 2015How about the battery performance.??? Do it face the draining issue.???Battery hasn't been an issue for me. I am using 4G, understandably it will drain quicker than 3G. Nevertheless, the battery life can last minimum 10 hours for heavy online surfing using 4G and 22 hours for 3G. Until today I haven't thought about using a powerbank yet.
I'd like to know about the S and S plus 1. If there is any extra battery packed in the station rather than the battery inside the phone 2. If both of the phons supported 4G and 3. If the station has its own screen keyboard and there is no need to order the keyboard accesory. many thanks
