Top three things I like and dislike about the Asus Padfone 2

I loved Asus Padfone 2. It was one of the best Android smartphone I’ve reviewed (Pop na Pop!) and it is only smartphone that is available in the Philippines that can transform into a tablet. That feature is the main selling point of the table. Aside from having that unique cool feature, the Asus Padfone 2 also sports a specifications you’ll surely love. The specifications of this phone is on par or even better on most flagship phones to date. But of course, there are also some things that I didn’t like in this smartphone tablet hybrid. Check it out after the break.

3 Things I like about the Asus Padfone 2

1. The solid and concentric circle texture of the smartphone

The concentric circles. It’s the unique trademark of the Asus Padfone 2. It’s awesome, It made the phone more comfortable to hold. The phone is solid too even though it is made up plastic. The aluminum accents on the side also made the phone more sexier.

2. The 13 megapixel camera is freakin awesome.

The 13 megapixel didn’t failed to impress me. The camera app might be confusing at first but the quality of the images were great. It can also record Full HD videos and even 720p videos at 30 fps. If you want more, it can record 90 fps videos at VGA size. The camera app also features a lot of effects including beautification.

3. Of course, I love the transformation of smartphone to tablet!

It’s the main selling point of the device. Why in the world would you not love that? When you docked in your device it automatically boots into an Android tablet in a matter of seconds. Don’t worry about your apps, files and mobile data because the Padfone Station would rely on the Smartphone for all of that. Pretty awesome right?

3 Things I dislike about the Asus Padfone 2

1. No MicroSD card slot

All of my school files, videos and music are all stored in a MicroSD. And whenever I have a review unit, I just transfer my MicroSD to the review unit and voila! All my files are there already. Device without a MicroSD card slot is such a pain for me. I hate wasting my time transferring files. The 16 GB storage is also not adequate for me. Too bad, there’s no Micro SD

2. The Padfone 2 doesn’t feel that durable

To be honest with you, I like the design of the Asus Padfone 2 and its station but I wasn’t impress with the Padfone 2’s Station material. The back was made up plastic and you can really press the body which makes me wonder if the docking station could last more than 2 years for me. The white color could easily attract dirts and I had to wipe it almost everyday just to make it clean. I strongly suggest to get the black Padfone 2 rather than the white Padfone 2.

3. Holy $#!+. It will cost you an arm and a leg

As expected, the Asus Padfone 2 will cost you an arm and a leg. Heck, it would even cost you a head! The Asus Padfone 2 is priced at P36,500 at Widget City. That’s way too expensive compared to other Android Flagship phones. Even though you can get a smartphone/tablet hybrid on this one, P36,590 is still too expensive for our pockets

The ASUS Padfone 2 is now available at Widget City for P36,590. Watch out for my review of the Asus Padfone 2 at Widget City blog.
