I can't be the only one...right?

 

Had mine for 6 months, loving it to bits, will be getting the padfone 2 next month when it releases!

Feel free to ask me any questions in regards to my experience with one for most of this year!

I very nearly got 1, it was the object of my desire for many months before launch.

Got the Galaxy Note at the last minute, mainly as I wanted to always have the biggish screen without having to cart around the PadFone station.

What percentage of time do you have the phone out of the station?

How are the connectors holding up to repeated plug/unplug?

Does the phone rattle at all inside the Station and is there any marking on it from sliding in and out.

I am certainly interested in the Padfone 2 but at this stage will probably grab the Note 2.

Hi Scott,

I thought your name was familiar, I think back then I read on your site about the padfone!

I use the tablet probably every second night? depends, on weekends where I go on ski trips or whatnot it becomes pretty useful, I'd say 50% at the moment thou when holiday season comes you'll see that percentage increase. The battery life is phenomenal, phone itself with GPS off lasts a good day or more of work. With the tablet plugged in it'll easily go double. The keyboard on the other hand makes the whole thing stay for 2 days or more.

Definitely no rattling, it is solid and very well fit, you definitely won't think there is a smartphone in the tablet. the connectors are so far so good, or perfect I'll say, the built quality is top notch especially when I travel so much.

I've got 2 sets, one I'm selling on trademe now that was used by my brother. He is selling his off to get the note2 as well (he just pre-ordered yesterday from Taiwan) Reason being he doesn't use the tablet as much.

I'm going to be selling mine off soon too and ordering my Padfone2 next month. the 4.7" screen being the main reason. The speed on the current processor I have no idea why anyone would need anything faster.

Thanks. If resolution of the Padfone 2 station is higher eg 1920 x 1080 or thereabouts it will be more compelling.

yea if it's 1080 that would be awesome.

In saying that the current tablet is more then sufficient to be honest. I will be considering the notepad2 thou as well.
In saying that the note2 is about the same price as a Padfone2 + an tablet. So it's really down to personal preference. One large smart phone or a ok large phone + an tablet for the same price.
