Hands on with the ASUS Padfone X

Sep 8, 2014

Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

The ASUS Padfone X is the third in the company’s line of phone/tablet combinations, but the first to come to the U.S., with AT&T. Priced at only $200, there’s no better way to get your hands on both a high performance smartphone and tablet. A single Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor inside the phone powers the device when standing alone and also when plugged into the tablet station, capably handling the 5-inch and 9-inch respective 1080p displays. The Padfone X’s ease of use and versatility has made big impressions.

  • “It’s a phone! It’s a tablet! It’s $200! The PadFone X is a great value with smooth and powerful performance, long lasting battery, and great camera that only sweetens the deal.” — AndroidCentral
  • “At $200 with a two-year service agreement, you’re getting two devices for the price of one. Also, you don’t have to get a separate data plan for the tablet.” — Re/code
  • “There’s a huge 4990 mAh battery in [the Padfone Station]. This is handy, and is a major reason why someone would like to purchase the Padfone X… Instead of carrying an external battery pack around, you can simply carry your tablet.” — Gigaom
  • “Colors on both the big and small displays are vibrant and have just the right amount of pop – no seared retinas here, thanks very much.” — Engadget
