Asus Padfone 2


The Asus Padfone 2 wants to simplify the smartphone or tablet or conundrum, giving you both sides of the equation, locked into symbiotic coexistence. The more we've lived with the Padfone 2, the more apparent it has become that for every highlight,...

Good smartphone performance, excellent docking system, clever software tweaks

You compromise on both halves of the package, especially on the tablet device

The more we’ve lived with the Padfone 2, the more apparent it has become that for every highlight, there’s a simple, regular solution. That leaves the Padfone 2 in something of a tricky situation. It’s well engineered, it’s almost priced right, but you...

Asus Padfone 2 review


Asus's second generation smartphone/tablet hybrid

Crisp, clear screen ; Snappy performance ; Quick and easy docking ; Can charge phone from tablet ; Relatively uncorrupted Android

Proprietary micro USB charger ; Low-res tablet screen ; Poor quality tablet feel ; High cost

Undeterred by the lukewarm reception to its first attempt at a smartphone-tablet hybrid, Asus has returned with the Asus Padfone 2. It's sturdier, quicker, and much better specced than its predecessor, but the Asus Padfone 2 hasn't left us entirely...

Asus Padfone 2


It's a phone and tablet hybrid, but does it have a point?

Unique two devices in one hybrid, Decent phone, Speedy processor, Good battery life

We wish the tablet's screen was brighter, but this is still an innovative and convenient alternative to carrying a smartphone and tablet

Has Asus streamlined its bonkers phone and tablet combo enough to create the ultimate mobile device? Find out here

Phone and tablet for one contract ; Solid performance as a phone ; Takes decent pictures

Apps don't transfer between displays ; No keyboard

This crazy modular marvel is now much more elegant but the Padfone's appeal is still fairly niche

Asus Padfone 2 preview


Asus is back for round two with the thinner, lighter and faster Padfone 2.

The Asus Padfone 2 is thinner, lighter and faster than the original Padfone and has significantly upgraded internals. There's no word yet on an Australian release date or pricing, so watch this space.
