Login to submit a review! Hardware Let's start off with the phone. Like many of the latest Android flagships, the PadFone Infinity comes with a 5-inch, p display and a quad-core chip.

In terms of resolution, viewing angle and color gamut, the newer screen is a significant upgrade from the predecessor's 4. Unsurprisingly, the Infinity comes with a bigger built-in battery -- 2,mAh, which is a nice bump from the old 2,mAh cell. On the other side of the phone, the old 1. The Infinity utilizes a brand-new design that takes advantage of an aerospace-grade, twice-anodized aluminum alloy construction. Instead of the signature Zen-ripple etching on the old polycarbonate cover, the almost fully metallic Infinity features a vertical brush pattern across ASUS PadFone Infinity back -- one that is ever so slightly curved when viewed from either the top or bottom, making the thickness vary from 8.


While the back's gentle curve does make for a somewhat comfortable grip, it stops dead at the straight sides and therefore produces relatively sharp edges. The two previous PadFones, on the other hand, had well-rounded corners that fit our hands better. It would have also helped if the screen bezels were less than 4mm thick, thus keeping the phone narrower. However, these are trade-offs that we're willing to accept for the sake of the ASUS PadFone Infinity versatility, solid feel and clean look. The back is dominated by the straight brushed-metal pattern, though there are a few features garnishing it as well. The back side alone easily makes ASUS PadFone Infinity one of the best-looking devices ASUS has ever created.


As for the front, the protruding, scratch-resistant Corning screen lens covers almost the entire surface, leaving a shiny 1mm-wide chamfer from each side of ASUS PadFone Infinity metallic body to reduce the chance of shattering when dropped. The phone's four sides feature a matte finish in the same color as the back -- either "titanium gray," "hot pink" or "champagne gold" color availability may vary across regions. Interestingly, the loudspeaker's now located ASUS PadFone Infinity the right side just above the power button and volume rocker, so it's less likely to be blocked in various scenarios.

On the other side of the phone you'll only find a pin-ejection tray for a nano-SIM card, which makes the Infinity the first non-Apple device to adopt the new standard the fake iDevices don't deserve recognition here, obviously. The top and bottom sides actually consist of well-disguised polycarbonate, which enables ASUS PadFone Infinity reception through what's otherwise an all-metal body.

The top edge is occupied only by a 3. It also provides a snug fit with any ordinary micro-USB plug -- something that the PadFone 2 failed at. Finally, sandwiching the micro-USB port are two round sockets for the tablet module's external antenna, catering to cellular signal worldwide model: What you won't find on the Infinity is a slot for microSD expansion, so you'll have to choose carefully between the 32GB and 64GB models. In principle, the hardware here is more ASUS PadFone Infinity to the PadFone 2 than the original PadFone: And unlike the first PadFone, there's still no docking keyboard with a built-in battery, so you can't use the Infinity like a laptop. Regarding the latest model, specifically, ASUS Corporate Vice ASUS PadFone Infinity Benson Lin doesn't think the laptop form factor is a feature that would help his company ship 1 million phones this year.

Asus PadFone Infinity

In his ASUS PadFone Infinity, ASUS does need to keep the combined weight ASUS PadFone Infinity the phone and tablet module to a minimum -- at least not much more than that of the iPad with Retina display for the sake of competitiveness. At this point, this is only achievable by shaving off as much weight as possible on the PadFone Station, hence the lack of a docking socket and circuitry for a docking keyboard this time around. Of course, this isn't a flaw, per se, but the lesser package may struggle to convince folks who were sold on the original PadFone concept.

On the other hand, the simpler and lighter package could help win more users, anyway. Compared to the 4G iPad, which weighs in at g, the PadFone Infinity's ASUS PadFone Infinity weight of g g plus g is still very competitive, and it's not that far off from the PadFone 2's g.

For ASUS PadFone Infinity who do miss the laptop form factor from the original PadFone, there's always the Folder case or TranSleeve case, which lets you prop up the ASUS PadFone Infinity Station and then hook up the device with a Bluetooth keyboard. You can also connect a USB keyboard via an optional adapter. The new PadFone Station comes with the same 5,mAh battery made by Sanyo as its similar-looking predecessor, meaning it can, theoretically, charge up the docked phone twice in battery pack mode; or you can keep the phone juiced up -- either matching the module's battery level or prioritized, depending on your setting -- while using it as a tablet.

Now, since this new PadFone Station comes with a more demanding 1, x 1, IPS panel from Panasonicthe battery ASUS PadFone Infinity last as long as it did with the previous 1, x screen; but the quality upgrade is well worth the small sacrifice. Plus, there are mechanisms on the software side to optimize battery life.


As before, you'll also find a nice loudspeaker, a microphone and a micro-USB port on the PadFone Station, but they've all been relocated. The loudspeaker, powered by an 18mm driver, has effectively swapped places with the microphone, so that it's now behind your right hand and well away from the ASUS PadFone Infinity volume rocker and power button on the left.
