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 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.
