Asus PadFone X is a pretty good device released many years ago, with a fast Quad-Core CPU speeding at 2.3 gigahertz, a pretty large 5-inches display, a 13 megapixels back camera and a 2 MP front camera.

While this cellphone is only 5.67 inches long, it's able to fit a a 5 inches display. Being just 0.39 inches thick,this cellphone is very thin and stilized. The Asus PadFone X is much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone this size. This phone is for sale in 3 different color options, gray, pink and gold.

This phone includes a great 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 5" screen, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels taking part of the screen. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This device is powered by a great performance 2.3 GHz Quad-Core CPU, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system chip with a large 2 GB of RAM. A nice advantage of this phone is its quite big 16 GB internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, allowing you to install a couple hundred applications without any problem.

The Asus PadFone X is equipped with two cameras, a 13 MP back-facing camera and a 2 MP front side camera. The Asus PadFone X also captures 4K 3840x2160 videos. Additionally, the camera counts with some good features: auto-focus, flash, face detection shooting, HDR mode and smile detection shooting.

This phone features wifi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices acting as a wireless modem or router), 4G LTE high performance data connection and also HSPA+ connection type, a lower speed 4G technology or 3G fast data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

This phone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Localization and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This phone has a 2300 mAh big removable battery providing this phone a below average battery life. According to Asus, this cellphone has a reported 30 hs talk time and a 417 hs stand by time.

Asus offers this device for 550 dollars, which is not very cheap for a phone this level. No matter if you want it to play tons of games, will use it as a work phone or want a phone to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, this cellphone is probably very appropiate .
