Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 64GB Android tablet review

Full HD fondleslab, anyone?

Cost-effective?

Fortunately, the extra pixels and more powerful CPU don’t appear to have any noticeable impact on battery life when compared to the Prime. Looping a 720p video saw the tablet battery give up the ghost after 8hrs, while the dock battery added another 5hrs 30mins. Unless you go berserk with the screen brightness, you can quite easily get three days of use between charges.

Fast, well-connected and, alas, expensive

What the Infinity is not, is a bargain. Just as the £399 Transformer Pad cost £100 less than the Prime, so the Infinity is £100 more. I can’t question the symmetry, but £599? Strewth. That’s £40 more than a 64GB iPad. Of course the iPad has a smaller if slightly higher resolution screen, no memory expansion, poorer cameras – especially at the front – and no keyboard dock with a built-in battery. With those comparisons in mind, maybe it's not so expensive after all.

Verdict

RH Recommended Medal

The Asus Transformer range continues to expand and evolve apace and with the Infinity you get a superb 1080p screen, 64GB of storage and an even more powerful incarnation of Nvidia’s Tegra 3 chipset. In use it is an altogether superb device but at £200 more than the basic Transformer Pad, the premium for the HD screen is a high one. If it was my money, I’d probably be more inclined to buy a Transformer Pad and a 8GB Nexus 7, and a lot of beer with the change. ®
