Android version and market relevance

In December 2014 was announced smartphone Asus PadFone mini. It is located in the series PadFone among many others smartphones Asus.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Asus PadFone mini works on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2014. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Asus PadFone mini, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Asus PadFone mini works great with two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

The screen Asus PadFone mini is made using the Super IPS LCD technology and has a diagonal 4.3 inches. Such a medium-sized main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 8.7 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 1 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera on 8 MP located on the back of the smartphone. The frontcamera at Asus PadFone mini received 2 MP that is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Asus PadFone mini. The smartphone received 4-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 400. RAM is built-in 1 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 16 GB. This is the only option that is produced by the manufacturer. Looking for memory cards? There is a special slot for card format microSD up to 64 GB.

Price for Asus PadFone mini: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is not the model you are looking for. If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Asus PadFone mini will begin in December 2014 at a price of $290. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).

We picked up these models at a similar price.
