Both are SIM calling tablets and come with 7 inch screen and as such identical features.
Asus has recently announced the availability of its latest calling tablet, the Fonepad, in India. You can book the tablet from Asus's website. The tablet is priced at Rs 15,999 but for the same price Samsung is also selling a calling tablet, called the Galaxy Tab 2 P3100.
So which one is the best? Let's find out.
Design and build
Both the tablets come with almost equal size - while the Asus Fonepad measures 196.4 x 120.1 x 10.4 mm (height, width, thickness), the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 measures 122.4 x 193.7 x 10.5 mm. Obviously, both the tablets have around the same weight as well; Asus Fonepad weighs 340 grams while the Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 weighs 344 grams.
As we said in our review as well, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 has a glossy back that makes it prone to scratches and smudges. All the speaker and connectivity ports in the tablet have been placed right at the bottom of the device so that its looks are not spoilt. However, the tablet uses a proprietary charging and data port so users will have to carry the cable with them at all times.
On the other hand, the Asus Fonepad comes in a metallic silver colour finish with the back featuring a part metal casing in order to strengthen it. The front of the tablet has been given a clean finish and there are no hardware buttons whatsoever for spoiling its flush design. Its back panel features a removable partial top that encases the micro SIM slot and the micro SD card slot as well. A removable top cover allows the device to be made without slots on the sides, which makes it further immune to dust.
Overall, it is a tie between the two tablets when it comes to their build as each of them has their own advantages and disadvantages. And anyway, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder so it is upto individual when it comes to overall look of the devices.
