Reviews Word on the street for the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T


10.0
We continue to like Asus' bundled software that truly are value-addeds rather than bloatware, and we look forward to Jelly Bean since Asus is always quick with OS upgrades.

8.0
The Transformer Pad has a much more average display: it's reasonably bright, with super-wide viewing angles and accurate colors, but it's no more readable outside than any other tablet.

Overall

9.0 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Brightness, especially when using Super IPS+ mode, is outstanding - so bright, in fact, that you can use it outdoors in bright sunlight (that said, automatic brightness sucks terrifically).
by Android Police (Jun, 2012)
Viewing angles are sometimes problematic with LCDs at this size, and I'd say Asus has done okay in this department.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
With the brightness all the way down, it's much less retina-burning than some other 10-inch tablets.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)

Operating System

A lot of Android tablets have come along since the Transformer Prime, but none have unseated it as the best of the bunch.
by The Verge (May, 2012)
Asus didn't really muck up Android's interface, but neither did they add much extra functionality.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
Asus' version of Android is very good – changes are well-thought-out and Asus apps are nice.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)

Battery

The Verge Battery Test crashed the Android browser every ten minutes, so it was no use, but when I set brightness to 65 percent and streamed Netflix over Wi-Fi, the Transformer Pad lasted 8 hours and 10 minutes — that was Doctor Zhivago, The Game, Snatch, and a few minutes of Big Daddy all on a single charge (I got a little desperate with the last choice).
by The Verge (May, 2012)
As soon as that Tegra 4 spins up, the battery starts to go fast.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
The keys are about what you'd find on a good netbook (read: okay-ish) and the extra battery capacity does help.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)

Operating system

My hunch is that Windows 8 is going to be a better operating system for this kind of convertible device than Android is, but it's still a great option to have for an Android tablet.
by The Verge (May, 2012)
The saving grace might be the power management modes included in the software.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
And don't buy it for its selection of tablet apps, because Android still lags iOS in that department.
by The Verge (May, 2012)

Apps

The file manager is remarkably clean and snappy, and there are tools to backup and password protect apps.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
The device was used to browse the web, poke around on Reddit, manage email, and play some games.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)
It plays games incredibly smoothly, and was more responsive to touches and swipes in Temple Run than some of the other tablets I've tested.
by The Verge (May, 2012)
