ASUS Fonepad Android tablet

 

The 7in ASUS Fonepad adds smartphone calling capabilities to a traditional tablet form factor

Almost stock Android UI ; Good battery life ; microSD card slot

Too large to use as a phone ; No 4G connectivity ; Poor cameras

The ASUS Fonepad is a reasonable tablet overall but it's just too large to be used effectively as a smartphone and also lacks 4G connectivity.

ASUS Fonepad: Review

 

ASUS has been doing a great job manufacturing Google's stellar Nexus 7 tablet over the past year or so, finally bringing to market a model that can challenge the dominance of Apple's iPad. But the company's own-branded Android tablets haven't fared as...

ASUS Fonepad Review

 

We decided to take this big phone for a spin and see how ASUS' concept of ditching the pocket communication device would fly. The short answer: not very far.

The Fonepad is just a confusing device all over. It feels like ASUS couldn’t really figure out what it was going for here and as a result we have a laggy tablet with call functionality that’s being marketed as a smartphone alternative. Either way,...

Asus Fonepad Review: One-Stop Shop

 

What if you had the form factor of the Nexus 7, the processor of the future and a behemoth battery to boot? Meet the Asus Fonepad: your next do-all tablet.

It’s weird that after over 12 months since its release to market that the Nexus 7 is still the go-to 7-inch tablet of choice. We can’t recommend it highly enough. The great news for Asus in that scenario is that it’s responsible for building that great...

The biggest phablet: 7 inch Asus Fonepad reviewed

 

Too big to be a phone for many (us included), the Fonepad is a neat device for customers unsure whether they need a big phone or just a tablet with a phone inside.

Excellent value, Offers between two and three days of usage depending on how hard you go, Screen has great viewing angles

No 4G, Too big to be a phone, You'll need big pants if you plan to haul this around in pockets, Camera lacks a flash and is low in megapixels

REVIEW: Asus Fonepad

 

Asus raises the stakes in the "mine's bigger than yours" phablet race with this shoe-sized Android phone.

The value proposition starts to change when you contemplate ditching your smartphone and only carrying the Fonepad. Is 7 inches an inch too far? Would the expensive Samsung Galaxy Note II or the budget Huawei Ascend Mate make a better compromise? Would...

First look: Asus Fonepad

 

Calling on the Big Phone.

The Asus Fonepad is a well-priced odd man out in the Android gang. Does everything mostly well, but can be too big and bulky.
