New Asus PadFone one-ups itself with Snapdragon 800, microSD (hands-on)
The Asus PadFone (September 2013) is a promising beast of a phone, with a stylish, sophisticated design, a pixel-dense screen, and gaming performance that puts even dedicated gaming devices to shame.
This new version is a followup to the PadFone Infinity, released just a few months ago. The upgrade retains the design of the older model, but swaps out the Snapdragon 600 for a Snapdragon 800 and adds a microSD slot to the phone's body.
To be sure, the PadFone is still a phone that plugs into a 10.1-inch screen to become what is essentially a full-size tablet. Only now it's faster and gives users an always-appreciated storage expansion option. If you're skeptical about the whole concept, we get it. So were we. It's just one of those things you probably have to try before you can completely understand how useful it can be.
