The folks of Mobilegeeks did one of the first reviews in the world of the ASUS PadFone Infinity. The hybrid was unveiled at MWC 2013 and it was one of the most appreciated devices, when it comes to design and power.

It relies on a Snapdragon 600 processor and adopts pretty much the same idea of its predecessor: a smartphone sliding into a special slot inside a tablet. The CPU is clocked at 1.7 GHz and the benchmark results are very impressive. It scores about 12.000 points in Quadrant, while in NenaMark it reaches 61 FPS and in AnTuTu it’s at 25k points, so close to Galaxy S4 and HTC One.

We also see in the review a function called ASUS Echo, a Siri and S Voice rival that looks interesting. The product is priced at $700, so more than the $575 HTC One and that’s without the PadStation, that also adds $250 in the mix. By the way you can attach the keyboard of the PadFone 2 to this slate, making the device into some sort of a laptop. More details in the review below:

    I’m in the US and bought this device. Sadly I have to return it. It was advertised with having Android 4.2, but actually had v4.1.2 installed. And I knew it wouldn’t support LTE, but I thought it’d support AT&T 3G but that’s not the case – I can only get 2G (Edge) data speeds. If this device ever officially comes to the US I may consider it again.
