So many phones and tablets out there — and yes, the hybrids of different brands are equally populating the stalls. What makes the ASUS Fonepad stand out? Apart from being an all-in-one tablet and an Android powered smartphone, it actually kills the battery life category. You won’t believe it, but the Fonepad’s battery can last you the whole day even with data and WiFi working, and yes even tethered to provide mobile Internet.

The 7-inch Fonepad is Intel-powered and it is perhaps a sexy thing to have the Intel logo sketched into a tablet’s backside. This is what partially accounts for the boost in battery performance. The Fonepad is akin to the Nexus 7 sporting exactly the same bright screen with a mitigated processor clocked at 1.2GHz but this is more than enough to get you through everyday tasks.

Does it fit inside your pocket? Perhaps if it is big enough. If you’ve ever tried stuffing an iPad mini successfully inside your garment, then yes this 7-inch phone will fit.

Other specs include:

1.2 MP front camera
3 MP back camera (optional)
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Hefty 4270mAh battery
WiFi + 3G capability (no LTE)

The ASUS Fonepad sells for PHP 11,995 for the 8GB model and PHp 14,995 for the 16GB model. Both units come with a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of multimedia space.


It’s a phone. It’s a tablet. And it’s got superior battery life. And, it’s affordable.
