Full Asus P565 review – gives “strong competition to HTC”

Gadgetmix who has been teasing us over the last few weeks with small excerpts from their review of the Asus P565, the Windows Mobile Professional smartphone with a VGA screen and the 800 Mhz processor, has now published their full review.

Most of the review concentrates on the speed of the device, with plenty of benchmarks, and videos showing performance comparisons, as seen below:

The other features of the device, such as the pretty tasty interface, also get a good going over.

Gadgetmix concludes

The ASUS P565 is finally something, which promises to give some strong competition to the HTC’s offerings. It’s great build-quality are appreciated. Leather back gives it a touch of class. With the most powerful mobile processor under it’s hood, you surely can enjoy the feeling of having the fastest Windows Mobile phone in hand. The screen is great, but the glide interface leaves a lot to be desired. It is not on par with the excellent HTC’s TouchFlo3D interface. ASUS is right on path to give HTC some real tough competition, if they do the marketing right.


Great professional design
Leather finish is a great touch. It gives it a premium device feeling for sure
Flushed screen
Responsive screen
Speedy processor (Intel PXA930 800MHz)
Auto-Focus 3MP camera takes decent pictures
Quite light at 120gm
Nice included case


Glide interface requires a lot of work to be done
It may be the fastest Windows Mobile, but no way the fastest PDA-phone.
Micro-SD slot not easily accessible
Only 56MB of free RAM after bootup out of total 128MB RAM
5MP cameras are on the rage right now although the 3MP camera in it performs quite nicely
No 3.5mm headphone jack
