A budget tab for your business
The Rock, Andre the Giant and the Incredible Hulk: three monstrous behemoths who could happily hold a 7in device to their faces without looking ridiculous. But for the rest of us mere mortals, we have to wonder where a 7in phone-capable tablet (alright, ‘phablet) such as the Asus FonePad might fit into our lives. Is it a viable phone alternative? Perhaps it doesn’t matter. Perhaps what really matters is that this seems to essentially be a Goo...
Overall User Rating (3.9 Out of 5 based on 402 ratings)
Overall: Bought this tab after extensive/exhausting research on internet. Using fonepad for 4 weeks now.I am very satisfied, great performance--full paisa vasool tab.
The best part is it's screen quality (7" LED Backlight WXGA (1280x800)
IPS Panel, 216ppi).
1. Value for money./budget friendly./doesn't burn hole in pocket(at least not too big) while delivering good smooth android tablet experience.
3.Internet runs fast (used on 3G and WiFi).
4.Voice call quality good.
6.Battery is good and charges fast.
7.Interface is user friendly,easy to use.
8.Touch response is very good,sometimes too sensitive(it has 10 pt. touch).
9.Build quality(Metallic back)-premium.
10.International Brand-ASUS behind it, the same that makes Google nexus7.
11.Intel Processor(1.2 GHz with Hyper-threading)--though not considered very fast these days,but still works great.
12.Android 4.1 out of box(upgradable to 4.2)
15>Runs most apps smoothly.Graphic quality is good.
16>No heating issue experienced.
1.Tab speakers not loud.(any 3.5mm jack headphone can be connected though).
2.Single core Intel processor considered not very muscular these days,but works for me.(another variant has a 1.6GHz processor)
3.Not the best tab for heavy gaming purpose,normal games(subway surfer,temple run etc) runs good on it.If gaming is the priority ,go for Google Nexus tabs.
4.Accessories like exact carrycase,backcover,screen guard--hard to find.
5.No Android 4.2 out of box.
6.Camera is not very impressive.,but nice.
7.Slippery back and difficult to open back top cover(for SIM,SD card slots).
8.Internal memory 8GB only (expandable 32GB SD card) and available in single colour only.Apps install on internal memory.
9.Phone functionality will be useless, if intended to be used as a comuting Tablet only.
10. A few apps hangs, probably not optimized for x86 based tab.
For me ideally:Asus fonepad should have be totally focused on tablet function only,with 8" screen size,1.6 GHz processor and 16 GB internal memory--leading to a perfect budget friendly tab.
Overall: Great tablet computing experience esp. web browsing,light gaming,calling-texting,casual drawing.Beats Samsung Tab2 and now Tab3,and other tabs in this price segment, for me.As u can see cons mentioned are not much of an issue w.r.t. pros.
