Asus Transformer Pad Infinity review

8.3/10 AVG.
RATING



8.3/10
Informr score
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity currently has an Informr score of 8.3 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 21 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

Android tablets launched prior to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean’s arrival were plenty powerful already. Yet the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity Wi-Fi, with its 1.5GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, still manages to top the market’s best offerings, both in terms of form and function.

The Pad Infinity Wi-Fi is the latest flagship Android tablet to come out of the Asus stable, and it features a 10.1-inch full HD 1920x1200 Super IPS+ touchscreen LCD, 1GB of onboard RAM, up to 64GB of internal storage space, a bevy of wireless connectivity features including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

When it comes to hardware, this Asus tablet is nearly peerless. Its got a dual camera configuration with an 8-megapixel sensor on the main, the screen is protected by a tough layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 2, and it comes with a dock-slash-keyboard accessory that can be used to add USB ports and extend the battery to further improve its overall feature-set. And best of all, the included software is scheduled to be upgraded to Android’s latest version, Jelly Bean 4.1, some time in the near future.

It’s quite difficult to find fault in the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity Wi-Fi. It’s thin and light, and with the battery extender in the form of the included keyboard dock, it matches the industry’s best in terms of battery life. Still, if you need a device with built-in 3G or LTE for on-the-go wireless, you may need to set your sights elsewhere or on LG's other versions of this tablet.

Need to Know: Asus Transformer Pad Infinity Wi-Fi

1. Onboard NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.5GHz is most powerful one yet. (The Good)

2. Having a 10.1-inch full HD Super IPS+ LCD touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 makes it miles ahead of the competition. (The Good)

3. Battery life is not as long as what can be achieved with other tablets without the use of keyboard dock. (The Bad)

4. The premium features are echoed by the premium price tag. (The Bad)

What Hi-Fi

So the Transformer Pad Infinity offers something different to the iPad and it delivers on many fronts. Despite running last year's Android 4.0, the tablet is a delight to use, with its gorgeous screen and speedy processor.The snap-on keyboard brings added value and functionality. But, the Asus still...

For the price, it's really hard to recommend anything over the iPad. The iPad's screen is at least as good, and its app selection absolutely laps Android's. It's also just faster, and smoother; apparently it takes more than just an Android 4.1 upgrade to fix what's wrong with the Infinity. No, there...

If you are looking to replace your notebook with the Transformer Pad Infinity with keyboard dock, it might be a bit too early. Asus has done a good work on the dock, but it’s Android that is slightly lagging behind to fully support it and developers are probably also to blame. We miss more and bette...

The Transformer Pad Infinity retains the superb physical design of its predecessors, which is over a year old, but still unrivalled by any competitor. We're as impressed with it today as we were when we first saw it in the Eee Pad Transformer. The Infinity's new high-resolution Super IPS+ screen is...
