Asus Fonepad Review


Asus Fonepad (13)

I’ve had the Asus Fonepad for just over 2 days and in that time I’ve been through the OS, the built-in ASUS applications, downloaded my usual suite of Android apps, I’ve run a few performance reports and even written a blog post with it. I’ve tested video playback and found limitations and issues. It’s clear that the Fonepad isn’t a top performer but it returns a very smooth and enjoyable experience for nearly all operations. This X86 Android tablet proves that although it took Intel years longer than expected, they can play in the low-power, low-cost mobile internet device game. If you’re looking for a first tablet I would advise going for one with 3G data capability and the Asus Fonepad is an excellent choice, but read the review below first.

Apart from a casing that wasn’t properly seated, everything seems to be working well and it confirms that the Asus Fonepad is excellent value. I’ll be doing comparisons with my 2+ year old Galaxy Tab to see how far the tablet space has come in that time. The Fonepad is running on an Intel Atom x86 CPU for a start! Prices have come down dramatically , the software has improved and screens are much better.
