Cracked my Padfone
Mon Feb 24, 2014 11:32 pm

So today, after having ot for about 1 year and 8 months I cracked the screen of my first generation.
http://www.padfoneclub.com/pl/forum/for ... .php?13754

What do you guys think I should do? Get it repaired for €200,- or get the latest version (€629,-):
1.5GHz Dual core CPU vs 2.2GHz Quad Core CPU
1GB RAM vs 2GB RAM
8MP camera vs 13MP camera
Android 4.1.1 (no further development) vs Android 4.2.2 (4.3 maybe 4.4 in the works)
4.3" qHD AMOLED display vs 5" FullHD IPS+ display

It's better on all fronts, except for one, and it's a pretty big deal for me, my current first generation Padfone has the ability to dock it into a 10 inch tablet (so has the new Padonfe Infinity), BUT: My current Padfone has also the ability to transform intoa a netbook by docking the 10 inch tablet in a fully featured keyboard dock (with 2 USB ports, a full sized SD card reader and an extra 6600MAh battery)...

So what should I do?
Current devices:
Asus Padfone (32GB), Android 4.1.1, Own custom ROM (T-Mobile NL)
Simvalley Smartwatch (512MB/4GB), Android 4.2.2, Stock ROM (Vodafone NL)
Expecting:
Omate TrueSmart (1GB/8GB Oct. Dev.), Android 4.2.2, Stock ROM

I did have an Asus Padfone Infinity sample unit to review, and I managed to make a tiny scratch on the glass of the station (it's not gorilla glass)... So that's also a concern for me... But it is so quick, and the displays are so nice :) Also the 13MP camera takes great shorts, I managed to take very nice shots with the PFI sample at a concert with very bad lighting conditions (at least bad for a camera that is)...
