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
Today is my first anniversary using PadFone S first edition, overall I am satisfied with its performance. Never regret it. Maybe I am a bit dissatisfied with the sound. Others are fine.
Love this phone. I don't need to change for a couple of years again.
MGR, 29 Sep 2015This is good phone or not...
Its user friendly or not, How is work ? Any Problem in this phon... morenever have any problem.
Zen UI i mean (not UI)
good display, good batterry management (using pad dock/ tablet docking)
I have experience with both the Padfone S & the Padfone S Plus. The difference in RAM was obvious. The current S Plus I'm using hace the extra RAM to increase efficiency. With the 2GB RAM, it was barely enough for games and everything. Also the 64GB internal memory of the S Plus is a great bargain. The 16GB internal was simply not enough to install apps. Moving apps to the SD card require more loading times compared to the internal memory. Now I can have all my games and apps in the internal and apps load much faster. The SD Card I'm using is only for photos, videos and some of my work stuff. Definitely happy with the Padfone S Plus. If you're getting one, don't buy the original. Go for the S Plus for the extra RAM and internal memory.
