PadFone S (PF500KL)

    ASUS PadFone

    A powerful & enhanced mobile experience–Meet the PadFone S,
    the unique ASUS innovation that combines the best of the smartphone and tablet.

    Beauty & Design

    PadFone S perfectly demonstrates ASUS’s unique and innovative design philosophy. It is an effortless convergent device that combines technology and style. With PadFone S, you can enjoy the options of different screen sizes that are optimized for different user scenarios.



    Anti Slip Design

    The unique docking mechanism has been designed to require just one simple step to switch between smartphone and tablet - it holds the phone firmly in the station no matter how you use it. It took our engineers and designers nearly three years to perfect the mechanism - it's incredibly robust as a result.

    Amazing Display

    Both the smartphone and tablet feature a stunning 1080p Full HD Super IPS display with vibrant colors, inky blacks and ultra-wide viewing angles. Full HD output to external displays is also supported via the MyDP (Mobility DisplayPort) interface.

    Elegant Design

    PadFone S's design is elegant and combines durability with fine attention to detail. It comes with a soft-touch matte finish that is beautifully crafted into a brushed metal frame for a good grip.

    The PadFone S is a premium LTE smartphone with a 5-inch Full HD display that becomes an 8.9-inch Full HD tablet when docked into its companion PadFone S Station. It removes the redundant data syncing and duplication of data plans, providing users with an incredibly light and uncompromised premium experience. App layouts are optimized to fit the two different displays, ensuring you get the best possible experience in each mode.

    Instant Transition

    The unique two-in-one nature of PadFone removes the need to tediously synchronize data between smartphone and tablet. All of your movies, music and photos are right where you left them, creating a smooth and rapid transition between devices. All storage is inside the phone, eliminating the need for synchronization when the phone is docked. PadFone S can run installed applications in both phone and tablet modes, automatically resizing or changing the layout of each application's user interface to fit the screen size.

    One Data Plan for Phone and Tablet

    This unique innovation allows the data to be shared between the phone and tablet. When docked, the PadFone S tablet uses the phone's data connection, meaning that only one data plan is needed for two devices.


    Perfect performance, without compromises

    PadFone S's processor easily handles multiple tasks and the wireless charging capabilities get rid of clumsy cables. It's a powerful and power efficient device with 4G LTE-Advanced technology that keeps you connected.

    The PadFone S offers up to 22 hours of talk time, and increases to up to 60 hours when docked into PadFone S Station. PadFone S Station's built-in battery also has sufficient capacity to fully recharge the docked PadFone S twice over. It's designed for flexibility and convenience, with even longer periods away from main power.
