Starting at £199, it does seem a little overpriced, particularly compared with Asus's own impressive £120 Asus MemoPad 7 . However, that model does lack the SIM-card slot so there's no 3G/4G connectivity or ability to make phone calls and send texts. ...

The Asus Fonepad, as its name suggests, can function as a phone as well as a tablet – the only device in this test to arrive with such a capability. It's a worthwhile addition, but that's not the only thing that's attractive about this tablet – its £184...

Asus sure did push out the goods at this year's IFA electronics show in Berlin. The Fonepad 7 is an update to the original 7-inch 3G tablet that joins the also-announced FonePad 6 Note in the lineup, albeit the 7 comes without an included stylus. ...

The Fonepad could be acquired for as low as RM 600 these days, that's for the 8GB variant. I think that's a really good price for a tablet with IPS screen, call connectivity and all. As for the sluggish response, let's just say “you win some, you lose...

The Fonepad is a very decent little Android tablet. It's pretty much almost a replica of the first Nexus 7, with a few minor improvements. Given that we waxed lyrical about how much we loved the first Nexus 7, it'd be hypocritical not to hand over a...

I was impressed with the performance and battery life of the Atom, and as a tablet, the Fonepad was pretty good, but at an RRP of $399 for the 32 GB model that we reviewed, it's $70 more expensive than the 32 GB 3G model of the 2013 Nexus 7 (although...

The ASUS Fonepad is excellent as a compact tablet PC. It is easy to use, fast, intuitive, and the screen is bright, crisp, with vivid colors. It is light and easy to carry in a small purse or a big jacket pocket. However, if you buy a Fonepad to be...

Take a 7-inch ASUS Android tablet, add an earpiece and a dialer, and what comes out is the Fonepad. The ASUS Fonepad — mainly tablet, but also part phone. And ASUS is definitely marketing this as something you would use to make phone calls — just...

There's certainly a gap in the market for the FonePad, despite the fact that it occupies the rather unusual middle ground between a phone and a true tablet, but in many ways the cheaper 16GB Nexus 7 offers a more agreeable way to part with your cash if you're after a branded tablet on a budget.

The ASUS FonePad made a positive impression. We liked it, at least when we look at it as a tablet. And it really is a tablet. As a phone, we were left much less satisfied. It certainly isn't equipped with the fastest processor out there, but for normal...

Even though the Fonepad is able to support 3G calls and data, I only found myself briefly using the feature since I knew I could do so with this Android tablet. I think it’s safe to say a large majority of people will feel more comfortable...

So, can you live with a 7-inch, 340g smartphone? Yes. Naturally there are compromises to be made. I wouldn't want to take a FonePad with me to my local pub for the evening or to a gig, and the absence of a suitable camera is going to become an issue at...
