Padfone 2 property 2 in 1 design , the dock just 1 tablet ( 2 Padfone Station ) and 1 phone left ( Padfone 2 ) . First I will talk to the phone .

The design of the phone is the ASUS Padfone 2 upgrade from the first generation Padfone launch early last year . Dimensions are 137.9 x 68.9 x 9 mm , weighing about 135 g and is made mostly of plastic . The front of the screen is 4.7 " , located in the thick edges , the gap of 2.5 mm 2 . Above the screen is the speaker , the camera sensor and lopsided to the left front . While the bottom of the screen is touch-sensitive keys , including 3 Back , Home and Recent Apps. All the aforementioned elements are wrapped inside a layer of glass . however , this glass is sheathed by continued a plastic rim . Liner thicker plastic at the bottom of the machine and is crossed . therefore , it is not too rough safes that make the design of soft Padfone 2 .

Wrapped edges are machine aluminum rims are pretty high-end finishing and a bit like the iPhone 4 . A special feature of this aluminum rims its thickness is not uniform but smaller broaching machine from top to bottom of the machine . At the bottom of the machine , aluminum rims with plastic edging crossed machine feels slim streamlined design . You will be fooled when new Padfone 2 on hand held by the members of this aluminum . But the truth is revealed when the machine is placed on the table and observed horizontal . Back cover of the machine is designed with edging back into the curved aluminum and boron . So , when looking Padfone 2 at an angle slightly from 2 sides , you can not see the presence of the cap which only aluminum rims . This is the answer to the " illusion " that created Padfone 2 .

The back of the plastic lid Padfone 2 is designed with concentric circle pattern slightly lumpy . For board design and curved at the edges , the rough pattern Padfone 2 feels very solid holding , palm fit and not slippery . At the back near the top of the camera is 13 MP camera with LED flash and the camera is right speakers .

The other buttons on the Padfone 2 as source and volume up aluminum rims are located in the right side . On top of the camera is 3.5 headphone jack is located in the middle top of the camera with 1 chrome rims wrapped outside , next to the microSIM slot . MicroUSB port is located at the bottom of the machine and the design is quite strange . The fiber comes with microUSB cable , but still could not get the jack out two long edges and I still do not understand the function of this component is. 2 microUSB port side is 2 round holes and fixed to help power the computer when plugged into the Padfone 2 Station .

Next is the Padfone 2 Station . Padfone 2 offers a 2 in 1 solution and as I said when first a bigger screen , you can plug into the dock Padfone 2 . So the dock is simply a screen 10.1 " with integrated battery , camera , speakerphone , but do not have any other treatment components . Padfone 2 When plugged into the dock , the phone image transmitted to the screen and of course the tablet interface of the machine also change the style Android tablet . When operating in tablet mode , you still use a similar configuration of the Padfone 2 .

Padfone 2 Station of size 263 x 180.8 x 10.4 mm , weighs 514 g excluding phone . Design of a very basic tablet dock with about 2 cm thick black border around the screen . Contour on a 1.2 MP camera , power button is located on the rear side and the volume up button is moved to the left edge . Speaker of the large tablet , placed in the back near 2 volume keys . Bottom edge is the microUSB port design similar Padfone 2 port on the phone . However, the most notable highlights of the dock tray is mounted on the back of the phone . Compared with the first generation Padfone , a device attached to the dock has changed markedly from horizontal to vertical . Plug tray has metal rim , perfect luxury . Inside the slide is serrated line of soft rubber , machine helps you slip into the dock in a natural way and keep the machine . Tablet will shake indicating a successful connection and you can start using . When you need to remove it , you just slide the phone up .

On screen , I continue to be divided into 2 parts screen 4.7 " 2 and Padfone phone's screen 10.1 " of the Padfone 2 Station .

Padfone 2 can be said to own a screen 4.7 " quite reach the quality of the Super IPS + HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels , Multi-touch and is protected by layers of Corning glass with class fingerprint -repellent coating . displayed image detail and color fidelity . Measuring 4.7 " with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of about 312 ppi screen . However, you can hardly detect each pixel of the screen . So Padfone 2 screen still smooth and crisp high .

However , the opposite is happening with the screen of the dock Padfone 2 Station . This screen uses IPS panels usually with glass Gorilla Glass similar . However, resolution 1280 x 720 px does not fit size 10.1 . " So no screen tablet is smooth , sharp necessary and quite pale color . Additionally, the class anti- fingerprint coating adhesion on the tablet does not promote optimal performance such as on the phone and fingerprint results are still scattered after the first time use . If ASUS tablet equipped for a Full HD screen 1920 x 1080 px , then things will be different . perhaps the lessons learned from the weaknesses of the Padfone tablet screen from generation 2 to Infinity , all new versions of Padfone 2 is equipped with a screen resolution of Full HD tablet .

Another question is whether the phone plugged into the dock , the connection is done fast enough or not . The answer is " very fast " ! . Plug in , then gently rock the lighter one , the image is transmitted from the phone straight to your screen tablet and not wait with the conversion. Conversion speed is similar to the phone when you withdraw from the dock .

As for the speakers , ASUS is well known for technology and SonicMaster sound technology has also been integrated to Padfone 2 . So the sound quality on both phones and tablets to clear , detailed sound pretty and not being shy to open up the volume. A note is in tablet mode , you can still use the phone , but no external speakers by speaker dock , and with size 10.1 " , the one holding the " chopping " down in the ear is not a good idea .

Performance :
ASUS Padfone 2 is equipped with a pretty good configuration :
  • CPU : Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad-core , 1.5 GHz , 2 MB L2 Cache ;
  • GPU : Adreno 320 , 400 MHz ;
  • RAM : 2 GB LPDDR2 ;
  • Memory: 16/32/64 GB ( no memory card slot support ) ;
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0, Wi - Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n , GPS + GLONASS ;
  • Network : 3G/4G LTE / WCDMA ;
  • OS : Android 4.1.1 ( Jelly Bean ) .

Although the configuration of 2 is not new Padfone with Snapdragon 600 or 800 of Infinity Padfone generation but it makes me really surprised . High CPU clock , 4 cores and 2 GB RAM ( RAM balance of stability at 900 M - 1 GB ) , 2 Padfone very smooth operation when opening applications , switching applications and web surfing . Another important factor is that the Padfone 2 interface using the default interface is Jelly Bean with some additional elements and new and Notification Widget bar . So , do not carry their own interface gong performance of the machine should be optimized . However, one point is deducted for no Padfone 2 slot machine although not super thin design .

Here are some benchmark results with dedicated tools like AnTuTu , Quadrant , Geekbench , and Vellamo Nenamark . In the list of devices compare , ASUS Padfone is a device 2 owns almost the lowest configured with processors older than . Configuration of the device are as follows : HTC One ( 600 quad core 1.7GHz Snapdragon , Adreno 320 , 2 GB RAM ) , Motorola Moto X ( Snapdragon S4 Plus dual-core 1.7 GHz , Adreno 320 , 2 GB RAM ) , Sony Xperia Z1 ( 800 quad core 2.2GHz Snapdragon , Adreno 330 , 2 GB RAM ) , LG G2 ( 800 quad core 2.26 GHz Snapdragon , Adreno 330 , 2 GB RAM ) , Galaxy Note 3 ( Exynos 5 5420 Octa 's eight core Cortex - A15 4 1.9 GHz + 1.3 GHz 4 cores Cortex A7 , Mali - T628 MP6 , 3 GB RAM ) , Galaxy S4 ( 5410 Octa -core Exynos 5 eight 4 's Cortex - A15 1.6 4 people GHz Cortex - A7 + 1.2 GHz , 2 GB RAM ) , HTC One Mini separate lower configuration with 400 dual core Snapdragon 1.4 GHz , 1 GB RAM and Adreno 305 .

With 4 cores CPU and 2 GB RAM , AnTuTu benchmark results , the Geekbench Padfone 2 Quadrant and higher only approximately One Mini and Moto X. Compared with other devices , Padfone 2 obvious weaknesses in terms of performance . It is quite surprising for Nenamark test , ASUS Padfone 2 frames to achieve the highest number ( 60.5 fps ) compared with other devices .

Camera :
Padfone 2 is equipped with 13 MP camera F2.4 . The image quality of this camera is quite good with enough light conditions . Images sharpness and detail is quite high , and well saturated colors . However, when taken in the light conditions , the image is quite noisy and more pale . In addition, the camera is pretty big delay when pressing the shutter button , it takes about 1 second , the new image is processed . So , if you shake hands , the image will be easily lost focus. Another disadvantage of the camera is located quite close by design on the side so if you do not notice it, your fingers can reach the frame . Here are some of my shots from Padfone 2 .

About Padfone 2 's camera interface is pretty much custom and reasonable layout . The interface is divided into two columns , left for the custom mode and camera effects . On the right is the camera button function as moving , turn off the flash , shutter button , and playback video . About the custom capture , besides the basic mode , the ASUS also filters filter integrated directly into the camera and you can even choose to apply to photographs . Other parameters such as white balance , ISO , and can be adjusted flexibly .

ASUS Padfone 2 is equipped with 2140 mAh battery . In theory , the non-removable battery , but we can still open the rear lid . However, ASUS has pasted a stamp to note that not remove the battery. Using partial phone from 8am to many tasks of the day , pretty much fiddling bar , 3G , Wi - Fi is turned on , the screen brightness automatically , then listen to the call at 8am 10 detectors recharged . Thus, it can be inferred with a higher intensity while ensuring the Padfone 2 1 working day .

When using Padfone 2 , often bringing along his dock the tablet . The dock is also integrated 5000 mAh battery and the phone plugged into the dock , from the dock battery will automatically be charged for phone .
