ASUS PadFone 2 is finally launched in Malaysia today with the price tag of RM2,799. As the successor of the original PadFone, the new version comes with a larger 4.7″ smartphone which is now powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 processor mated with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The PadFone station which is the tablet dock is now slimmer and lighter at just 649 grams with the phone docked. Also new on the PadFone 2 is a slide-in docking mechanism which is much more seamless.
Other notable hardware specs include a larger 2,140mAh battery, 13MP f/2.4 camera and a better 4.7″ Super IPS+ display that now does 1280×720 pixels resolution. This time around, the PadFone 2 is lacking micro-SD memory expansion slot.
The key benefit of PadFone 2 is its seamless transition between phone and tablet mode. Since the brain is on the PadFone 2 phone, docking it simply transfers your current session onto the big screen with minimal lag. In our review of its predecessor, we find switching between phone and tablet to be rather seamless which also depends on the support by apps. If you carry both phone and tablet around and looking for a better convergence between the two, the PadFone 2 is definitely work checking out if you don’t mind its rather hefty price tag.
