2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • The smartphone is pretty compact to hold, and has a good build quality
  • Wielding the PadFone mini (with the phone in the tablet dock) in one hand is a little cumbersome due to the bulge on the back
  • The differences in the design languages of the smartphone and tablet portions make it seem as if two separate devices have been strapped together, instead of making a product which is more cohesive

Display

  • Decent display on both the smartphone unit, and the tablet dock - bright, with good viewing angles

Software

  • Nice custom UI (similar to the Asus Zen series) on top of Android

Performance

  • Decent performance in day-to-day use

Camera

  • Apps requiring a front camera such as skype, hangouts etc don't open in the tablet mode, as the tablet dock lacks a front camera
  • Camera lacks flash

Audio

  • Good call quality and signal reception
  • Decent loudspeaker

Battery

  • Poor battery life for both just the smartphone, as well as the tablet combo

More

  • Unique 2-in-1 device
  • Tablet dock too supports voice calls
