We knew the ASUS PadFone 2 was good, but is it that good? Announced last week with great hype and two special events in Europe and Asia, the device packs the Snapdragon S4 Pro popular processing solution, that can be found on other newcomers, like LG Optimus G and HTC J Butterfly. And now the PadFone 2 has been put to the test, scoring a great number of points in Quadrant.
The device reaches almost 7500 points, as shown in the video below, neatly surpassing the likes of HTC One X, that lags far behind with 4700 points. ASUS PadFone 2 scores 7493 points, to be more precise and it does that relying on a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad core 1.5 GHz processor, together with 2 GB of RAM. Even the Galaxy Note II is surpassed by more than 1000 points, so once again, impressive feat.
Also impressive is the 13 megapixel camera on this device, with samples being shown last week and a great promise coming from the entire tablet + phone combo. We should also mention that this is the highest scoring Android device in Quadrant, but only when you refer to models taken straight out of the box, without overclocking and custom ROMs. Expect the PadFone 2 to arrive in Europe and Asia around December for about 800 euros in price tag, for both devices.
