As to phones

In reply to: What do you think about the brand ASUS?

Google used them to build many of the Nexus phones and tablets. My Google branded Asus built 1st gen 7 inch tablet is many years old and still fine. It's 1st gen so it leads a leisurely life as my desk clock and second screen.

BTW

What would people wanna get google Nexus stuff, are they anything special?

Yes 2012 is considered old now.

In reply to: BTW

It is underpowered for what folk put out as games today and is overall sluggish compared to todays tablets.

Google's own, their brand devices have been very nice. On par with Apple's quality in my opinion.

So yes, I do like their stuff.

Wait a sec

In reply to: Yes 2012 is considered old now.

Aren't the devices still made by the contracted manufacturers (with this case being Asus)?

Could be.

In reply to: Wait a sec

They change on a whim so I can't know if they change. If you can specify an exact model, maybe we can find out.

Could be?

In reply to: Could be.

So they are *mostly*/mostly likely made by Google?
WHAT?!

Collapse -
Confusing isn't it?

In reply to: Could be?

For each thing Google has made or sells, they might change who made it.

If someone wanted to know it all, they could spend a lot of time here.

ASUS Is a Mixed Bag in Terms of Quality

In reply to: What do you think about the brand ASUS?

We had an entry level ASUS laptop a few years ago. It was priced $20 or $30 above the competition both online and at BestBuy where we got ours. The Intel Pentium dual-core cpu, 3GB of RAM memory, and a 320GB hard drive performed better than my expectations. After the one year warranty expired we installed an SSD in place of the spinning hard drive, and this made the laptop evn quicker and snappier than before. Part of the reason for the original snappy performance is attributable to their not having loaded the machine down with a load of resource-hogging apps (bloatware). Yes, there were several ASUS apps pre-installed, a couple of which were actually useful! We did uninstall trial versions of McAfee security and MS Office and replace them with our own choices.
We passed the laptop on to a support group we attend where it's used with a projector for presentations at meetings, etc. As far as I know it's still running perfectly today.
We also have an ASUS motherboard in a PC which I built in 2009, still running OK. Also, a couple of ASUS DVD/CD drives, and a couple of those tiny ASUS USB Wi-fi adapters.

as good as any other brand

In reply to: What do you think about the brand ASUS?

as far as their laptops, they seemed to be pretty good at the right price with one small issue. the last time I was comparing them with other brands, the battery life always seemed to be lacking.

I never had their phone but I do have a tablet (ASUS ZenPad 3S 10) and it is great. Just got it last fall when samsung s3 was a no show and it is great - no regrets. It replaced my original Note 10 (2012)

I am still waiting for the asus zenbo to be released here in the states so I can get one Happy

I have always liked Asus, and I still do.

Have a great day.
