ASUS PadFone 2 Review


The first PadFone showed a clear direction as to what PadFone 2 could be, and we’ve noticed that some of our wishes have been granted as soon as we’ve opened the box. The PadFone 2 Station, i.e. the tablet part of this symbiosis has become a much more beautiful and elegant device. With a modern design and noticeably thinner and lighter than the previous version, the new Station is entirely up to par with what other tablet manufacturers have come up with in the meantime. We’re particularly impressed by the fact that this tablet remains light and comfortable to use, while the new Station itself is lighter than its predecessor by almost a third.

The previous phone insertion system wasn’t good enough, so it’s clear why folks at ASUS have concluded that it needed a thorough redesign. As you can see from the images, it’s far simpler now, and we can confirm that it’s more functional as well, enabling faster access to the phone and keeping it in place very firmly. With the help of the soft, jagged edges, Teflon pad and two holders, everything is kept well-tightened and in place, which means that the phone is only going to fall out if you really put your mind to it.
