ASUS Fonepad may not be a phone – but no one said that the non-phone can not ring. This 7-inch tablet is probably the perfect proof to achieve excellent agreement between the price and the offered quality. See how Fonepad fared in testing editorial.
The abbreviation, or wideorecenzja ASUS Fonepad
One of the most enjoyable "7-calowców"
Fonepad a well-balanced compromise between quality, type of materials used and the output product, which in the hands holding an extremely pleasant. The relatively modest size (196,4 x120, 1×10, 4 millimeters and a weight of 340 grams) are fully acceptable in any orientation. Ergonomic Fonepad may not be ideal, but it is difficult to seriously to be picky. Equipment is sold in silver and black color version (there is also a specimen golden) together with VersaSleeve 7, which is dedicated to cover. A nice thing. By the way, the editors came to my dream, "monochromatic" set, which is black and gray. Presents a very nicely. [Nggallery id = 358 template = techmaniak] ASUS has decided to join plecki aluminum with a plastic flap on the top edge, with the task of shielding the SIM card slot and microSD card. Cool the solution, comfortable, although after unveiling we have directly access to one of the plates – and this is wrong. It's easier this way the tablet damage. Already at the first moment I had at least a dozen imaginative ideas for effective destruction. I omit also the fact that sooner or later I will be lost. I do not know about you, but this kind of thing I'm lost forever. Always.Fonepada The front wall is primarily a display system three on-screen buttons and logos ASUS. Buttons are well placed in the enclosure. Sure. Do not fly, pushing them in a way that does not require additional power. They also enable a smooth change of volume during phone calls. On the bottom edge we can find micro USB connector. In fact, design is similar to the Nexus 7, also produced in the factories ASUS, but this time the producer resigned from the implementation of the great, the rubber cover on the rear panel. Instead, as I mentioned, we get aluminum, which in addition to mechanical damage resistance also provides better heat distribution. Not once Fonepad failed to warm up in a bad way, in a way that would prevent the comfortable use. The European variant is equipped with a camera with a resolution of three megapixels, capable of recording video in HD Ready (1280x720p). This is not a new record, although I must admit that Fonepad can pretty well give details in the photographs. On the front wall, in turn, find a camera with 1.2-megapixel matrix. Examples movies:
The screen is made with in-plane switching and has a resolution of 1 280 x 800 pixels, which is the 7-inch diagonal translates into a density of 216 PPI – that's good, that does not strain your eyes. Fonts are crisp and clear, and thanks to the IPS panel, the viewing angles also can not complain. We can not talk about the density of pixels alive removed from the PadFone'a Infinity, but in any case it is not bad.Manufacturer Joins basic software application that allows you to control the colors and their saturation, hue and any similar aspects. Intriguingly, however, is that just out of the box display Fonepada gave me a very warm – color temperature is noticeably higher here than in many other tablets. The screen is sensitive enough (ten points of emphasis), effortlessly performs all user commands. Fonepada The one drawback I can recognize a maximum brightness of white, of only 205 cd/m2, at minimum brightness maintained at 24 cd/m2. Fortunately inequality reaches only 8%, which is the limit value. ASUS also took care of the presence of illumination intensity sensor, which works very effectively.
For this price? Revelation
You do not have to worry about an external modem; Fonepad supports most commercially available Micro SIM card. Strapped to him, those of the Play network, Orange and Hayah, where each tablet itself chose the APN settings s and effortlessly connect to the Internet. It was not too off the machine between successive substitutions cards. Fonepad is also compatible with Aero 2, although you will need to manually set the network parameters.'ll Get right to talk, because they are one of the most important features ASUS Fonepada. In terms of comfort – feel that this device larger than the average smartphone. On the street causes unhealthy curiosity even if you decide to conduct a conversation without a headset. I can not imagine Fonepada use every day, because the first Bluetooth headset is one of the ugliest devices in the world, and secondly – the tablet itself is too big. On the plus side, however, you need to save the low weight equipment.The sound quality is high and the proper range to reach us without interference. It means simply is no different from a mobile phone. The screen dialing, call history and all other aspects of this type of work perfectly. The Wi-Fi has no objections. Fonepad caught my home network quickly retrieve the IP address instantly, and even on the range I could not complain. The results are similar to those of the Xperia Tablet – Wi-Fi application Analyzer showed maximum sensitivity to the router, remained part of the green five feet away (two walls), and the yellow color appeared only at a distance of more than ten meters (and three or four the wall on the way). Bluetooth and GPS work fine. The latter was able to determine the position of the open space in a matter of moments, and in more locations pledged not last longer than 60-90 seconds. It is not an add-on button for power, and a full-fledged, useful functionality. Unfortunately, it looks like Fonepad does not support USB OTG functionality. Maybe it will work on roocie, but the XDA-Developers topic remains open.
Compensates for everything that could you please
I will not hide the fact that this is the best feature Fonepada. Single-core processor and low screen brightness are reflected in long-life battery, which goes far beyond the standard framework of most tablets and smartphones. ASUS has done just hardware for people tired of the continuous charging and, within hours of a phone call, only two percent of lost energy. And that's just one example.ASUS introduces a variety of software is also energy saving modes that reduce efficiency (up to 25 percent) in order to extend the working time. All stress tests moved around on the brightness of 120 cd/m2. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "video-wifi-on, video-wifi-off, Internet-wifi, internet-3g-wifi communicator, max" product_id = "19154"]
Performance / Functionality
The work is enough. The game, too, but not the last
The overall system is shown overlay ASUS, done in my opinion a little hastily. It's not so much about the performance, so I have no objection. Often proved to be more effective than the native Google solutions. The problem is only in the design, which better fit to a bygone era – a specific diagonal striped background layout and on all beams function led me eventually into a frenzy. But now that I'm at the keyboard: it is great for fast typing. We have the ability to switch it on this classic with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but (even though the said appearance) did not have the slightest desire.ASUS is at the company, which usually takes care of its 'mobile' customers, which is why I am convinced the release of updates to 4.2 in the foreseeable future. The device runs on the single-core Intel Atom Z2420 processor with clock frequency of 1.2 GHz and a PowerVR SGX540 graphics system. The whole is supported by a gigabyte of RAM and from 8 to 16 gigabytes of memory, wherein – in the second version – the user access to about 12 GB. In addition, through the application Life Time, we get five gigabytes of space in the cloud ASUS WebStorage. This is one of the many programs that the ASUS joins the tablet. As usual in such cases, some of which come in handy – some not at all. Fortunately, you can easily uninstall the unwanted titles. Here is a list of the most useful:
- ASUS Splendid – known to monitor the company's display settings to optimize the function,
- ASUS Story – create photo albums,
- ASUS Studio – banal image editor
- AudioWizard – change of profiles sound, equalizer,
- BuddyBuzz – aggregate information from social networks
- MyBitCast – program notes,
- MyPainter – simple drawing program,
- StickyMemo – the electronic equivalent of office "sticky notes".
ASUS also allows you to move individual applications on the memory card.Wydajnościowo Atom is not a giant, but suffice it to work one hundred percent. Listening to music, viewing spreadsheets, large PDF files, launch several tabs in the browser – with all these issues CPUs from Intel fared well. I also managed to run into him some of the advanced game, but you must be aware of the "top-down" part of the incompatibility of titles from EA and Gameloft (and not only). This is no longer the same specificity Atom. Possible "hiccups" under normal usage happened to me once, maybe twice. Tablet works surprisingly smoothly, which means that we can do good equipment at a good price. Because let's face it: Fonepad is not expensive, especially if you look at the wide range of accessories. To surf the web is the default Android browser, although on a different panel has also installed Google Chrome. Both programs operate on a similar, high level. Benchmarks not particularly appreciate the computing power single-core Atom, placing it roughly in the middle of all categories.

Summary, evaluation and review
Fonepad is proof that not only led Google can do a good tablet. Appealed to me not only a form of external device, but also his surprisingly smooth behavior and good performance in those games, which are able to run (eg moved easily Asphalt 7).The problem is the same Intel Atom, because as far as possible to achieve a record time of battery life, it is doing just the problems of several common titles. On the downside, you can save the lack of HDMI and MHL, Android 4.1.2 (which still works great), and the felerną flap protecting the SIM and microSD slot. Fonepad be one of the few devices on the market that are characterized by a perfect price-performance ratio. Anything, only to take, if you care about 3G modem, discussions, and accordingly high capacity battery.
