The Asus PadFone X comes with two excellent web browsers - the stock KitKat edition skinned by the manufacturer, and Google Chrome. The two browsers feature similar layout, though we found Google Chrome to be more to our liking - it is simply more up to date than the stock Android 4.4 solution.
Web browsing is a great experience on the PadFone X in both handset and tablet mode. There's nothing to frown at on this instance.
The Asus Padfone X has the full version of the Polaris Office 5 productivity suite for viewing and editing documents. It features user-friendly interface and handles documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with ease.
The calendar has three different types of view - daily, weekly and monthly. The lower section of the screen is reserved for a list of upcoming events. Adding a new event is quick and easy, and you can also set an alarm to act as a reminder.
There is also a calculator aboard. It is nicely touch-optimized - the buttons are really big and easy to hit. You can enable advanced functions (trigonometry, logarithms) in either portrait or landscape mode.
The clock app has great-looking UI with flat design. It offers the usual set of functions that include world clock, alarm, stopwatch, and timer.
An Asus weather app comes preloaded as well. It gathers data from AccuWeather.
