Rating Asus Transformer Pad TF300T: good, long battery life, keyboard useful base
Right from the early days of entering Android tablet, Asus has attracted the attention of consumers thanks to the idea of ​​hybrid tablet laptop unique line of Transformer. At the exhibition MWC earlier this year, addition Transfromer patterns Pad Infinity and Prime of the high-level segment, the company has introduced more model Transformer Pad 300 targeted customers more popular. Although the device so cheap but still powerful configuration property with NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 10.1 "1280 x 800 resolution IPS panels, 1GB RAM and keyboard dock as the his brother. interesting What this machine and the strengths, weaknesses it located? offer everyone the same track review below.   Basic configuration of the Asus Transformer Pad TF300T: OS: Android 4.0 CPU: Four 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30L Display: LED 10.1 "IPS (1280 x 800), 350 nits brightness, touch 10 fingers RAM: 1GB Memory: 16GB Connectivity: Wi-Fi b / g / n, Bluetooth 3.0, audio port, 2-in-1, micro HDMI, microSD, GPS On the dock more USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader Camera: 8MP Auto-Focus (after) shooting Full HD 1080p / 1.2MP (front) Size: 263 x 180.8 x 9.9 mm (dock not included) Weight: 635g (not included dock) Appearance and Design   Appearance, Asus Transformer Pad TF300T (from here you will be referred to as the TF300T) owns many similarities with model more advanced transfomer Prime, from thin beveled edge design, layout, ports and connections back cover to remain concentric circles. Luxury design with good quality finishing that we do not think this is a product of Asus Transformer lowest level, and also does not feel cheap appearance. Device structure is also more reliable than the first Transformer model. The company offers three options for users: white, red and blue, the color of the version you are holding. In essence, the color is dark green research towards more fresh, not like in the press photos provided by Asus.   TF300T weighing 635g, although a bit heavy but hand hold the camera very dress sense and enjoy. However, if between the machine continuously for about one hour with one hand, his hand began to fatigue. 9.9 mm thin device, not an impressive figure considering the Transformer Pad or rivals from Samsung, Apple, but it does not cause any discomfort to us.     The front of the computer screen is a 10.1 "Asus logo shiny and wide mirror coated layer to the edges. Device four edges of the screen is a bit thick so looks TF300T rather large, in return we have large area to hold freely, fingers do not accidentally touch the touch screen and messing things up. As between the horizontal top edge you will see a camera , did lower edge of a small silver arrow to mark the location of the port connected to the keyboard dock. If you're new to this can confuse the arrow What is a piece of paper that stick to the screen and will try to flick it off the mirror surface of the tablet.     The back of the machine is a large plastic sheet is made available to, and has helped create the effect on concentric circles, help increase the friction, so you can rest assured that the TF300T will not slip off your hands. Round the fringes will appear when the source of light at a slightly oblique angle to the machine and you can find it on the Asus the Ultrabook ZenBook line or on the Transformer Prime / Infinity. However in the TF300T, we do not have backs made of large aluminum plate on this model. This reduces the device at much higher levels than his brother. In the middle is the Asus logo plated light, moved up on a little camera with good size, and on the left by a series of speakers TF300T. Can see the back is the points press help TF300T stand, to the front of the machine is normal as other tablet only. However, the speaker layout like this is not good because the sound will walk away from you, and when you hold the camera you so easily obscured speakers that sound significantly smaller if you are right handed.   The left edge of the TF300T On the left side is the the TF300T connection port, in order from top to bottom including micro HDMI, microSD slot. Slightly above the two keys to increase or decrease the volume with the body color. Meanwhile, the right side is much simpler when only the appearance of a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Two keys long enough volume so that you can manipulate freely, and they are also very easy to hit. Two side is not as rough as the back that is just normal matte plastic paint only.   Edge TF300T Edge of the same material as the side that I was talking about, except that this is where the power button layout / unlock. Even on normal power button seemed a tiny LED light to signal you that the battery is charging or the battery is full power. Bottom edge, sophisticated look than a 40-pin connector of the Asus, next to it is two box for restraint on the dock dug in when we add TF300T to the base. Since there are quite a lot of holes so the bottom edge is not pretty, look at it not as seamlessly with the other parts of the device.   Lower edge equipment Video on TF300T hands Some other pictures of the Asus Transformer Pad TF300T    Galleria.loadTheme ('/ js / Tinhte / Galleria / themes / Azur / galleria.azur.min.js'); $ ("# Galleria_208871392"). Galleria ({ imageCrop: false, maxScaleRatio: 1, preload: 3, fullscreenTransition: 'fade', });             Galleria.run ('# galleria_208871392');     Keyboard stand design       Similar to the TF300T, the soles are made mainly of plastic, but it does not own the fringes round the back of the tablet. The dock itself has dimensions of 263 × 180.8 × 10.2 mm and weighs 546g. In addition to the normal QWERTY keyboard and mouse multi-touch table, the edge of the dock with a large array as a place fixed for the TF300T when we "transform" it. The left edge of the dock only one 40-pin connector of the Asus, while the right side, Asus is equipped with a USB 2.0 port and SD memory card reader. On the bottom on the dock four large rubber Department of arranged at the four corners helps lift equipment over a period, limiting the damage to the dock.   When attached to this TF300T we have a combination weighs more than 1kg, approx netbooks currently on the market. Essentially speaking, if you have to add tablet into the dock, remote view it completely like the new Asus EeePC, close or even open it up, we knew it was Transformer Pad. Goal to turn the tablet into a laptop Asus has been completed in an outstanding way. Also the use of the dock How convenient, I will analyze further in the section below.   Some other photos of the keyboard dock Galleria.loadTheme ('/ js / Tinhte / Galleria / themes / Azur / galleria.azur.min.js'); $ ("# Galleria_623252931"). Galleria ({ imageCrop: false, maxScaleRatio: 1, preload: 3, fullscreenTransition: 'fade', });             Galleria.run ('# galleria_623252931');     Screen   There are three main differences between the Transformer Prime TF300T: lower CPU clock, scratch-resistant glass Gorilla Glass two generations and the most easily recognizable is the screen. Transformer Prime use IPS panels +, also TF300T not get this plus sign. Compared to Transformer Prime TF300T not bright screen, and the mirror above it is also more reflective, so when released they are very difficult to see the content on the TF300T, while the Transformer Prime I've ever tried do not be like that. This screen quality only at temporary because the colors do not stand out and not accurate, relatively low resolution on panel 10.1 ", so you will easily see the phenomenon of broken grains of the text and the edge of the icon. This is similar to other Android tablets currently on the market, although it does not affect the use of the machine for routine tasks. truly dark environment, the function adjust the brightness of the activity is bad because it reduces the brightness down too low to see the content on the screen, while this does not happen if you use a day. Having a good view of the screen IPS is a wide viewing angle, so I can easily share content with people around that color has not changed, and it's even more effective when attached to the keyboard for use as base netbook.   Camera     Asus equips its popular tablet form a high-resolution camera is relatively high compared with other cheap tablet, up to 8 megapixels. It's the same with his brother resolution Transformer Prime and more advanced 5-megapixel camera of the first generation Transformer. Image quality of the camera on the TF300T a little better, sharper, colors true relative light enough not to be light or blurred as the other tablets on the market. When shooting in dark environments, image bright enough and can be used, in part due to large aperture f/2.2 lens on this camera. A little sorry for the machine does not have LED flash light on the Transformer Prime. Drawback of the camera is its contrast range of the very poor, just a little difference in brightness can cause detail in the image is lost. Front camera is similar, brighter than any other Android tablet, but nothing really outstanding. TF300T has the ability to shoot Full-HD 1080p video, image quality for very fine, clear detail and focus speed.   As for camera applications, Asus built for us a very easy to use software. Its main interface is nearly identical to the default camera app on Android 4.0, all control components are arranged along the right edge of the screen so you can operate with a thumb. You can adjust white balance, exposure, scene modes, video capture, panorama as on other Android devices. If you prefer, you can touch any point on the screen to focus or to make our software. It takes about half a second to a second to complete focus and start shooting, and latency after locking focus not great. However, this app is a bit slow when we switch between shooting mode and playback mode.   Sample image taken from TF300T Galleria.loadTheme ('/ js / Tinhte / Galleria / themes / Azur / galleria.azur.min.js'); $ ("# Galleria_1273958640"). Galleria ({ imageCrop: false, maxScaleRatio: 1, preload: 3, fullscreenTransition: 'fade', });             Galleria.run ('# galleria_1273958640');     Video recording test from TF300T in low-light conditions Performance and the level of use   NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor is integrated on TF300T with 1GB of RAM helped the system run faster and smoother on Andorid 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Scanning operations to switch between the home screen, browser, start, shut down the application, see Notifications, 1080p Full-HD movies ... all of which can be done quickly with very low latency. After a long time of use, the machine is still running fast and relatively stable, we do not need to restart the device. In particular, with the power of Tegra 3 and GPU 12 to play high graphics game like Dead trigger or ShadowGun is not a big problem. Images in the game is extremely detailed, graphical effects, shadows, reflections, antialiasing fully shown and not delayed in the process of playing the game.   However, during use, there are a few times spilled about 5 to 10 seconds and not respond to any interaction that you apply to the screen, fortunately after that, the machine back to normal. From time to time you will also notice that the opening of the application suddenly slowed down, but this is a very common condition on the Android tablet not only the Transformer TF300T own.   It is reported that Asus has released Android 4.1 for the TF300T in the United States, at the time of trial, his uncle's TF300T advised that there is no upgrade at all. I've tried Android 4.1 on the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7. It is a very different experience compared to Android 4.0 running on the same device. The whole system runs fast and extremely smooth, shock phenomena or almost no lag, the higher the stability of the system. If Android 4.1 is installed to TF300T we will get a better tablet than the present.   To measure the performance of the Pad Transformer TF300T, running three benchmark applications Quadrant, NenaMark 2 and Vellamo. That score achieved in test equipment system overview of Quadrant is 3619 points, slightly lower than the Transformer Prime brothers in almost all aspects, such as computing power, memory access speed , speed data, capable of rendering 2D and 3D. With NenaMark 2, a specialized benchmark allows for graphical TF300T scored 53.5 fps, higher than the 6.5 fps brother Transformer Prime, but not overtake the Galaxy S II T-Mobile NenaMark reference. Finally, with Vellamo, TF300T reach the 1348 points, the average number for the Tegra 3, lower X-One, One XL and Transformer Prime. You can view the screenshots benchmark results below.   Snapshot benchmark results TF300T Galleria.loadTheme ('/ js / Tinhte / Galleria / themes / Azur / galleria.azur.min.js'); $ ("# Galleria_722707997"). Galleria ({ imageCrop: false, maxScaleRatio: 1, preload: 3, fullscreenTransition: 'fade', });             Galleria.run ('# galleria_722707997');     Software     Asus TF300T an almost primitive interface of Android 4.0 Halo theme familiar blue-black-white. Even so, it still has the small custom shape in three additional Android function keys and add a off quickly switch hardware (Quick Settings) in the Notification Bar. In addition, the company also included in the more Asus Customized Settings in the device configuration. Here, you have the option of pressing and holding the button Recent Apps for screenshots, tuning system performance (there are three levels: power saver, balanced and priority performance), turned off Quick Settings, and some institutions power-saving mode.   Asus install applications to us include App Backup (backup), App Locker (lock some software, to have a password to open), File Manager (file manager), SuperNote (recorded notes) and some software related to their own services as MyCloud, MyLibrary, MyNet and WebStorage. This is the cloud software functions almost like Dropbox, Box.net or SugarSync and you will receive a free 8GB WebStorage. You can also use MyNet to conduct share content via DLNA between TF300T with devices compatible with this connection. MyLibrary app own continuous error message when I run it, it seems that does not work in Vietnam must. You can also add a really nice widget designed by Asus device on the main screen to track information about the battery capacity of the machine as well as on the dock.   I feel the most useful applications that Asus TF300T is SuperNote. In addition to normal keyboard notes, it can convert our notes on each line is like you are operating on a real book. If you have a pen stylus for capacitive touch screen, the story notes on the TF300T will be most interesting, because you can write English, graphing, writing equations, ... (SuperNote save what we have drawn up in the form of images on the theory that we wrote anything as well). Besides, SuperNote allow us to insert photos, bookmarks, audio or video recording or insert another text file.   Images of the interface and applications on TF300T Galleria.loadTheme ('/ js / Tinhte / Galleria / themes / Azur / galleria.azur.min.js'); $ ("# Galleria_249028869"). Galleria ({ imageCrop: false, maxScaleRatio: 1, preload: 3, fullscreenTransition: 'fade', });             Galleria.run ('# galleria_249028869');     Use the keyboard to the base       Comes to the Asus Transformer can not abandon the keyboard dock. Dock gives you a full QWERTY keyboard as on the regular netbook. To add TF300T accessories is very simple, we just need to put the match to the restraint of the dock and press slightly to be done. The connection is simple and a lot easier than the first generation Transformer, which must use more energy and emit more. Once a unified, fixed TF300T is very tight, you can turn this device cluster and shake without worrying about the screen fell out. Want to remove the keyboard from the stand, Asus gives us a small lever plated light, but the key is a bit hard. Parts dock connector and tablet cracked up to be, so you can adjust the viewing angle to suit the eye. It is through it that the dock will be tilted at a slight angle from to cluster the device plane, thereby creating a slope to the typing more comfortable.     Keys on the dock size by 94% compared with conventional keyboard, ensure a good import experience listed on the TF300T. If you are a student, or group of students who need to type a lot of text TF300T with dock is a great choice. Sitting in front of the same feeling as when you are using a EeePC, but more interesting because you can touch the screen to control. However, the rise of the keys to feeling not as good as the Transformer Prime dock, although the keys are quite deep and smooth. There is a very annoying when using the dock, that is you can not turn or unlock TF300T with the unlock key on the keyboard. To activate it up, we have to press the power button on the TF300T. When the screen lights up and then the button with the lock on the new dock to take effect.     Mouse dock is multi-touch, so you can slide your finger to perform the same operation using TF300T screen. The sensitivity of the touchpad is very good. Two left and right click buttons are common to a single bar, just like the design of the EeePC. You can configure its right mouse button to do various things, such as the menu or return to the previous screen.   On the dock has three connectors: Asus 40-pin socket used for charging, USB 2.0 port and an SD memory card slot. The content on external storage devices will be approved easily through the File Manager software that Asus built for us, like when working on the computer. Thus, in addition to the 16GB internal memory storage (TF300T 32GB option), you can expand the 64GB of SD card (on the dock) and more 64GB thanks to the microSD card (in the body). Thus our total fixed 144GB to contain data for the TF300T. It is not an additional 8GB of storage on the cloud that Asus donate and large capacity of USB 2.0 thumb drive can be connected at any time. SD card slot is also very handy when traveling fast because it allows us to copy the image the TF300T, edit, apply effects and quickly share online. Previously, these tasks often have to use the computer, but for now let's just compact tablet is finished.   Not only that, this dock also has a built-in battery to supplement the TF300T. This section I will talk with the battery life of the machine just below. However, it goes without saying that TF300T + dock can not completely replace your laptop computer for Office applications attached to the unit supports only basic features (and other app on Android too), the operating system is not optimized for the mouse as well as the limited ability to read the special file type.   Battery   Battery life is the biggest plus point for the TF300T. Machine with a 22Wh battery in the camera body and another member capacity of 16.5 Wh in the dock. Asus gives us three modes of operation: save power, balance and performance priorities. All the articles below are running in testing mode Balance because of the big difference between it and High Performance mode, even when play two heavy game is Dead Trigger and Shadowgun. Only when the story down to save power, the new graphics processor slows down a bit. When connected to the keyboard, if the battery is in the TF300T less than it will continue to take power from spare batteries so you do not be surprised if after removing the dock, alarm% higher battery.   In the experiment with the brightness at 70%, constant Wi-Fi connection, update Facebook, three Gmail inbox, surf the web for about 3 hours, listening to music via speaker in one language and against some of the software other machines can withstand more than two days. This is a very impressive figure compared to other Android tablets. When used with a high intensity, including the game Dead Trigger for 2 hours, a Wi-Fi connection, update their Facebook, email, watch HD movies, about 2 hours, then we can use almost 9 hours.   It is worth mentioning that these two test batteries of TF300T but not touch the battery in the dock. Battery in the keyboard base by about 2/3 built-in battery capacity TF300T and you absolutely can achieve computing time from 12-15 hours of continuous use. Generally, you will not have to worry about looking for places to charge the battery, especially when used together with the dock, even if your needs are watching HD movies, playing games or simply just browse the web, write draft text and check the mail.   Conclusion   Strengths: Strong configuration Perfect good quality, beautiful back Machine operation is fast, relatively stable Camera better than many other Android tablets Battery life is excellent Empire handy keyboard Weaknesses: Quality dock and feeling of typing on it is not as good as the Transformer Prime Screen for beautiful pictures, pale little In some cases the system stand for about 5 seconds Camera shooting in the dark noise TF300T is an average price of products that Asus launches next to brother Transformer Prime to get access to many other objects. If you are not very abundant purse and do not care much to several dozen nits difference in screen brightness and a slightly lower clock speed of the CPU, the TF300T is a very appropriate choice. Perfect good quality, handy keyboard stand and a smoother operation will bring you a good experience compared to other Android tablets on the market. Excellent battery life, plus the operating system Android 4.1 going to be present for the TF300T is two strengths that Asus has brought into your device. However, I would like to reiterate that not shopping TF300T to completely replace my laptop computer because you will encounter many restrictions on the software. ...
