Asus PadFone Notes 6, Android 4.2 and Intel Atom Z2580 Phablet

While other smartphone manufacturer relies on Qualcomm Snapdragon technology, Asus PadFone Notes 6 is the only compacted device I heard to sport an Intel Atom Z2580. Some 7-inch model are equipped with the same chip but not for a 6-inch smartphone with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) platform. The entire packaging is slightly confusing because probably of its unique size.

Review of Asus PadFone Notes 6 is in favor of its underlying technology and devices. Although it has a dual-core CPU, some smartphones are already taking advantage the power of quad-core chips. We can say that Intel has a different performance compared to Cortex-A series or Samsung Exynos. And those handsets showed out in stores with a budget-friendly and affordable prices.
