Detailed review
After Motorola Atrix, this is the only device which carried forward the
concept of a 2-in-1 Phone plus Pad gadget with shared internals (CPU,
Memory). This concept may not have become very popular but for travelers
this is a boon.

In PadFone Infinity, ASUS has finally got the device working smoothly
and seamlessly. So my vote is 4.5 on 5. Why not 5/5? Well, they should
have added a keyboard dock like they had for the Padfone 1 and the battery drains out quickly.

I actually have the new Padfone Infinity A86 with 32GB internal memory plus a 64GB microSD card. So I have a system with 100GB memory on board. A powerful CPU (snapdragon 800) with 2GB RAM makes this device ready to replace my Notebook for most purposes.

I just love this gadget....
