Good: It does what I need when it works
Comment: I purchased this in May it has since had a screen failure and now I have been waiting 4 weeks for a battery problem to be fixed.
Poor quality !!!!
Good: price phone 3g battery life tablet spec cheap price
Bad: poor screen slow freezes up cannot trasnfer to sd card no camera sealed battery poor aftersales
Comment: Thought the idea of a tablet with phone ability sounded a good idea but in reality neither work that well the screen becomes hard to unlock and there doesn't appear any way of transferring to the as card. Also very slow downloading speed with the single speed processor. Also this my third machine first failure now it looks like the third one has.problems not recemmened avoid get a nexus7 instead
Good: 3g, wifi, mine has back and front cameras, price
Bad: non removable battery, no possibility for better processer (as they have in Asia)
Comment: Convenient size. Works for me. Like it.
Good: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS is perfect. Touch is awesome
Bad: non-removable battery
Comment: Can use internet with SIM card. Brilliant product for the low price buyers. Happy to have it. Love it.
Good: for this price you expect competent - but it was delightful
Comment: I have big hands and wear reading glasses and this is just perfect. fits my work suit jacket pockets perfectly and doubles as a reader on journeys. Wi-Fi for work and holidays (maps and location etc) excellent. Priced to perfection - and if you're embarrassed by putting a 'big phone' to your ear stick with the comfort of herds.
Good: clear screen, 2 core processor(Odd reviewer says 1), no fuss opperating system, Giffgaff £12 UNLIMITED INTERNET, otg so can connect anything thats usb, cost £180 so not afraid to use it everywhere...
Bad: when I find something I will update this. Only had it a 3 weeks.
Comment: Ihave now stopped using my laptop over last 3 weeks of ownig a Fonetab. I can use it with a usb keyboard, mouse , 64gb flash drive and powered 3.5 500gb hard drive without the need ^for a powered hub. I will be getting a powered hub so I can plug in my 2.5in portable hd. I can sit out on the grass and use the internet to see if I am goinbng to be rained on using giffgaff. I can sit in bed and read a book. Hard tobe without it to be honest. No even dreamed of using a it as a phone......
Good: Superb build quality,free data on giffgaff for £12-can just have one device also quite good screen & performance once u tweak it up
Bad: Gorilla Glass Grease magnet -smudges so easily
Comment: Asus have a great new concept here & I'm sure others will follow the phablet trend as u can keep one device only & no need for add ons u can use all your free data!its very close to the nexus...same housing almost & screen but has intel chip which is another first for android tabs!i only had the thing 3 days but love it not been near my iPad!my iPhone 5 is very problematic & this look at android is very good...sorry iOS for now Asus is my new toy! Don't get if u want to play all the best games tho u want a nexus or tegra chip tab
Comment: Ref my earlier post it should read

Comment: I think many people who are interested in getting the Asus FonePad , are waiting for the new version that has faster 1.6GHz Z2460 processor plus 32GB of memory
Comment: I was in Spain last week and purchased the model with the camera on the back €225 + £190.
I'm very pleased with it.
