what a great cell phone at this price range, No major problem so far, I use this phone since January 2015, no lag, and the procecor is excellent in work. it's a simple design & you get 2 device in one price (if you buy the complete package : cellphone + pad station). over all, if you ask about this product I really recommended....
I have used this phone for 6 months, no major problem and no serious heating probably because it uses Snapdragon chipset.
how do use the vidio call & what softway can support the vidio calling
The upgraded version has been release, namely the PadFone S Plus. (Malaysia already on sell)
Comes with 3GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.
Other spec remain the same.
It is roughly around 50 dollar more expensive, but still well worth the price.
The old 16GB, 2GB RAM still is still brilliant, and a great bargain. This is because the phone comes with Micro SD slot, which can be expanded easily. The increase of RAM won't boost up performance either, just improve multitasking where less apps reloading between apps switching.
i have been using this phone for the last 5 months, and i have to say, i am very pleased with the phone itself.
the phone doesn't lag, except for a bit after changing from phone to tablet or vice versa. audio is loud enough, although for watching videos sideways sometimes your hand is in the way. camera is good, no complaints there. ZenUI is actually pretty user friendly. plastic back cover is okay because mine has fallen for 5-6 times, and there is damage to the back cover. side cover are metal, but good ones because i see no scratches on mine. my biggest problem is the battery.
i am an avid mobile game player and i have to say, battery doesn't last the whole day and i have to charge battery twice each day. true, this can be somewhat handled by switching to tablet, but on tablet mode, it is heavy and wide and even though my hands are big, it is just not easy to use one hand on tablet mode. but i have tried for one day of no games, just social medias, and i have to say, it last for the whole day, with 42% left at night.
my other problem is actually region limited. i live in Indonesia, and the problem is accessories. because padfone s is quite new in Indonesia, not many places sell the accessories, hence making me to buy them online.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2015how does this phone compare to the oneplus one? are there any major performance difference?Oneplus One is slightly faster than Padfone S, due to slightly more powerful processor.
But, from day to day use, you won't going to notice the difference.

Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015How many SOT you can get ? and how long it takes to charge?it took about 2 hours to charge from about 5 %. but you have a to use the charger Asus gave you, or you'll have to wait about 4 hours to charge it with a random USB cable or lower Watt charger.
Most value for money smartphone...especially if you buy with it dock, battery is less but you can solve it with it's dock. Very recommended phone...
everything is greatt . worth every penny. the specs is as good as s5 for me an even better experience when i use it daily. only battery that dissapoint .
this phone has great camera , great display , great performance for gaming. the only problem is the battery that drain so fast. i'll take this phone over iphone 5s or lg g2 or even zenfone 2
just got it last night, in my view this padfone s in fact batrey seems drain faster than padfone 2, and backcase with doff material make it not too classy(i suggest if you want buy this fone look for white colour for cooler appreance.
widget also too plain only white, not rich colour and appreance like padfone 2.
im in reearch how to move padfone 2 widget into this padfone s. it should really great if i can use padfone 2 widget on it hehe
i got the new padfone S PLUS with 3GB RAM and 64GB Internal Memory, the rest should be the same. with sd card slot, this is what i need. for now :)
this s plus version still using the same box, just they stick a new label PLUS and new spec label.
battery life way behind my mi3 and lumia
