Quick Verdict


Fonepad come at a lower price than most 7" tablets from known brands, but it is more expensive that lesser known tablets out there that are more powerful.


 

Introduction

Although not the only one available, ASUS Fonepad is one of the few tablets to offer the possibility of making phone calls. Fonepad runs on Intel Atom Z2420, a single-core 1.2 GHz processor and has 1GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage capacity.

Overview

The tablet features a 7" screen with IPS panel and a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, as well as a 1.2 MP front camera, MicroSD card, Wi-Fi and GPS. The metal casing is only 10.4 mm and weighs 340 grams. The 4270 mAh battery promises about 9 hours autonomy, which is quite impressive. Although it is made of plastic, Fonepad's makes a good impression. It is light weight (340g) and very user friendly. The tablet works remarkably well, but as a phone you canít use it with only one hand.

Display

The 7" Display is generous in viewing angles of vision, and the IPS screen is lovely. The 1280 x 800 resolution common for a tablet, but the 216ppi pixels donít resemble the quality of a smartphone.

Camera

Asus decided to go with a 1.2MP front camera on this device, and it is obvious they try to address Skype and other user communication needs. In terms of taking pictures or filming, the Fonepad is not exactly suited.

Software

Asus Fonepad runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and Asus customized it with a number of useful applications, and users can add more. The Intel Atom Z2420 processor runs Jelly Bean nicely, but large multimedia files can become a problem for this tiny one-core processor. Overall, the Fonepad is speedy and works nicely both as a tablet and as phone.

Verdict

Fonepad come at a lower price than most 7" tablets from known brands, but it is more expensive that lesser known tablets out there that are more powerful. However, Fonepad is a remarkably capable device that mixes a tablet and a smartphone. It would not hurt to reduce the size on future Fonepads because a smaller display would make it more of a smartphone. Fonepad It is well built and has significant autonomy and a quality display, yet the device uses a single-core processor which is a bit of a turnoff.
