Asus hasn’t messed around too much with the stock music player, which is not a bad thing since ICS comes with a pretty mean player. You can sort your songs by Recent, Albums, Artists, Songs, Playlists or Genre. The player has a clean look to it and you even get audio enhancements by default. The great bit is that the player also supports FLAC files now. The audio quality is good with a decent pair of earphones and the volume is quite loud even without the enhancements.
Easy to use media player
The one place where we feel Asus could have done better is the video area. Since we are stuck with the stock player, there’s only support for MP4 videos. 1080p videos play just fine though, even through pen drives plugged into the USB port. Videos look crisp and sharp thanks to the IPS screen.
The Prime doesn’t have 3G support but you get all the other good stuff like Wi-Fi ‘n’, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth and of course HDMI-out. Strangely, there’s no Face Unlock in this build and we have a feeling that has something to do with the 1.2MP front camera. Looks like this feature requires a minimum of 1.3MP camera and above in order to work properly. DLNA is also present and can be accessed through the MyNet app. You can share music, photos and videos to any DLNA certified device.
Great for surfing the net
We also have Asus WebStorage which gives you unlimited web storage space for one year after which you have to pay a fee to continue the service. MyCloud lets you quickly browse and sort out your media files saved in the cloud. One feature we really like is App Locker. It essentially lets you put a common password for whichever app you want so you can prevent nosy people from snooping your private picture collection.
Other apps include MyLibrary which lets you read Ebooks and popular news publications. Kindle app also comes bundled. There’s MovieStudio for editing your captured videos, Polaris Office for working on Office documents and spreadsheets.
Some of the extra apps
Since this is a Tegra-powered device, we get TegraZone allowing you to purchase and download games optimized for this hardware. App Backup lets you backup your apps into the cloud and Asus gives you 600MB of space.
