With the Asus PadFone 2, the concept is even more ergonomic than the Atrix. It's a fine Android phone with a 4in screen that's also the slide-in engine for a slick tablet. Not so long ago, the idea of a tablet supplanting the need for a laptop was...

Asus are a company that I think of for computers and motherboards. So when the opportunity to look at a mobile phone from them it seems an interesting option. The name puzzled me for a moment until I related the ‘Pad’ part to a...

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...

As we said, battery life is a big plus when considering the Padfone 2. The duo give around two days of normal use watching movies, playing Android games, messaging and making calls. In fact, if the Padfone 2 were cheaper we'd be much more enamoured of...

As a combi deal with a high-end smartphone and matching tablet the Asus Padfone 2 is more than a gimmick -- it's a pretty good deal. The phone's spec may not quite match the very best, but the differences are minimal, and hey, you're getting a...

The Padfone 2 is the second iteration of ASUS' smartphone/tablet hybrid. It's an unusual concept, but does it work?The ASUS Padfone 2 was first unveiled back in October 2012 as an update to the original Padfone. Beyond mere spec updates, there are...

The Padfone 2 is a great idea, and one that's mostly well-executed. There are definite advantages to having phone and tablet share a single set of apps and the same storage space, and – in theory – it makes sense not to double up on processing power,...

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

The PadFone is such a good idea you wonder why nobody thought of it before. Despite the lack of storage expansion, the benefits of having a phone with an optional ten-inch screen and a reserve battery are obvious, while the handset itself is every bit...

WITH THE ARRIVAL OF WINDOWS 8 , transforming devices have become all the rage, with seemingly every hardware firm under the sun rushing out hybrid machines. Clearly aware of this, Asus has taken a page out of Optimus Prime's book, creating devices that...

The Padfone 2 is an interesting attempt by Asus to create an all in one tablet and smartphone convertible. However, the initial promise is let down by a number of niggling flaws that make its £600 price tag feel a little...

The ASUS PadFone 2 is an outstanding smartphone, but like the LG Optimus G it's no longer a cutting edge product. It's definitely fast enough, but the fact remains that the hardware has evolved further in other recent mobile devices. This doesn't...

A beautifully crafted handset, which fits into the 10in chassis to become a tablet. The idea to combine two form factors is brilliantly executed by Asus. We love the battery life the device has to offer and the pricing is also reasonable for the...

The Asus Padfone 2 is an interesting and unique offering. For £599 you get both a phone and a tablet in one although this has its limitations. Good hardware and excellent battery life are the standout features while build quality is a bit of a...

Phones have been getting bigger to bridge the gap between mobiles and tablets. Some - like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - are big enough that you might manage with just one gadget. But for that extra screen real estate, you can't beat a full-size tablet...

The Asus Padfone 2 is rather dear at £599, but if you were planning on buying a tablet and phone, you’d probably spend about the same. The Padfone 2 is a great smartphone and the addition of the Station dock gives you the benefit of being able to...

We have to admit, we had reservations about the PadFone concept - it just seems a bit impractical. Yet given the constraints, Asus has made it work as well as it possibly could - and if you’re the sort prepared to buy a phone SIM-free rather than on...

The Asus Padfone 2 is somewhat niche. It's well executed, but with conventional smartphone/tablet options at the same price, it has to fit your life perfectly to be...

Key specs include quad-core internals, a 720p screen and 32GB of memory. Sound all too familiar? That it may, but the Padfone 2 is fundamentally different from every other phone on the market thanks to its tablet dock.Doubling up as a battery pack and a...

The ASUS PadFone 2 is in a few words, one of the best devices I've had the joys of playing around with. It seamlessly flips between being a smartphone and a tablet without compromising on performance or user experience. If there was only a matching...
