Asus again stamps its mastery with the Fonepad 7, giving it excellent specs like a HD display, a powerful processor, good camera, decent storage and enough connectivity options. The limited colour options are a let down, but not enough to prevent this device from being one of the best in the market in its price range.

All the good stuff in one tablet

Asus has released its new Fonepad 7, which sports a 7 inches HD (800 x 1280 pixels resolution) IPS LCD display for stunning visual clarity. The device sails on the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Fast performance is guaranteed by a 1600MHz Dual Core processor (in Intel Atom chipset) paired with 1GB of RAM. Gamers can enjoy high-end games thanks to the PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU.

The tablet is great for photography, since it comes with a 5MP rear camera. It can also shoot fullHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) videos. A 1.2MP front camera provides video calling support. Internal storage is sufficient at 8GB, and can be expanded using microSD card up to 32GB. 
Excellent connectivity features including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS (with A-GPS) and GLONASS, and microUSB connectivity are available. A good 3950 Li-Po battery provides the device power backup of up to 10 hours.

Asus Fonepad 7 review: an impressive 3G calling tablet

Asus is known for offering innovative products, and quite ...

Feb 11 2014 By Rahul Gupta
  • Great display
  • Good performance
  • Good battery life
  • Plasticky build
  • Low sunlight legibility

The Asus Fonepad comes with a price tag of Rs 17,999, but is available in the market at Rs 13,000 approximately. As a tablet, it`s speedy, responsive, and good for gaming as well. As a smartphone, it offers 3G connectivity and calling facility. All this makes it a great hybrid device that, as we have mentioned earlier, offers performance comparable to smartphones within the same price range. Having said so, the major competition to the Asus Fonepad comes from the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 T211 which currently retails for Rs 15,000 approximately. At that price the Tab 3 offers inferior hardware specifications which would result in lower performance as compared to the Fonepad. Notwithstanding the better hardware, the Fonepad is tad too plasticky. The tablet certainly lacks the premium appeal especially considering its MRP. All in all, the Fonepad offers up to a day and a half worth of battery backup between recharges, thanks to its 3,950mAh li-polymer pack. If you`re indulging in resource-intensive activities like gaming the backup is reduced to about 4-5 hours, which is not too bad considering the amount of additional load games put on the device’s battery. Ultimately, if you`re looking for a capable tablet with voice calling capabilities, the Asus Fonepad 7 is definitely a strong contender.

Pathetic after sales service
20 Feb 2014 By Abhikrant Sharma On

A friend of mine bought this tablet in January. I asked him about the review of this product. He said "If the product works fine, it's a good purchase but if it fails, you'll be tortured by ASUS service centre in getting it back to normal state ". The basic problem was that the motherboard had going bad completely within two months of purchase. When asked for repairing at service centre, they quoted the price much higher(Rs 18k) than the cost of the product(Rs 15k). It was surprising to understand how a motherboard can cost higher than the product.nI would recommend you to not buy this product as I did not buy it too after this suggestion.nnAlso, Flipkart deleted review of one of the reviewer and my friend Gaurav. He was sent an email by flipkart to remove his review and when he did not remove it, flipkart deleted the deview.nAs his review was against ASUS and its product which might be decreasing the sales, they prefer to keep user preference and customer satisfaction below their sales. Never expected this from flipkart.

Just bought Fonepad 7 from Flipkart
29 Dec 2013 By Sriram Ramakrishnan On

Friends, I have been referring about the best tab to buy around 20k for over a month. I have considered Samsung TAB 3, NVIDIA TEGRA TAB, NEXUS 7 2013 and Fonepad 7.nnFonepad 7 is by faaar the best tab ever made in the mid range. It outlives the hype made about Nexus and Tab 3.nnProsn+The phone features are as good as a normal smart phone, and tab is better than a non-phone tab. So, you get twice for the same moneyn+ Finish is top class. (though build quality can be improved)n+You get to choose 3G or Wifi for net, which makes it convenientn+Intel performs better than Snapdragon in every possible way.n+Music quality is awesome(though it is not loud enough for indian taste). You can hear every minute detail in the musicn+Asus mini apps are a new dimension to androidn+Flipkart service is too goodnnConsn+A bit heavy to holdn+Glossy screen is bad(buy a matt finish screen guard)n+No flash in camerannBottomline:nAll Nexus lovers and Tegratab lovers, FonePad 7 is by far my product of the year...Go for it.. Il give it 4.5/5
