ASUS have given the Transformer Pad Infinity a wide range of features, with some ASUS-exclusive applications on the tablet. One of the more useful applications is SuperNote. SuperNote lets you take various notes, in different forms, such as handwriting or "scribble", the keyboard (on-screen, or when docked) as well as inserting methods (annotation, timestamp, take photo, voice recorder and more).
I messed around with SuperNote 'scribbling' a note in the screenshot above, and it works surprisingly well. Personally, I wouldn't use this type of feature, but if you wanted to quickly take down some notes, or draw something (for whatever reason) the app is there and it's simple to quickly jump into and jot down some notes, or a drawing.
ASUS have also included three buttons in the settings pane marked "Power Saver", "Balanced" and "Performance". The Infinity can be put into any of these modes, depending on the task at hand, and the tablet will distribute the power accordingly. For example, if you were to be using the above-mentioned SuperNote, you would switch to Power Saver - as you don't need the entire tablet cranking along, with the screen brightness cranked up.
That little touch is quite impressive from ASUS, and something I would really like to see pushed into more smart devices. Being able to change modes will ultimately personalize the device to your use, depending on the things you're doing with the tablet.
ASUS have stepped up with the display over the competition with not only the resolution, but the company has baked in various modes that the screen can be changed to, with the option of choosing "Super IPS+ mode (outdoor)" or "IPS mode" on the settings pane. When on IPS mode, the screen looks good - changing it to Super IPS+ mode, and wow, it blows you away. Colors are deep, text is sharp, the screen is five-by-five.
ASUS' Transformer Pad Infinity with its SuperIPS+ screen and its various options for use, can change to "Outdoor" mode and when outside, it really shines. It's not perfect, but it's a far cry from other tablets such as the company's Nexus 7, or Apple's iPad. The Infinity is far better at displaying its screen outside in daylight than its competitors. It works very well, with one of the only downfalls being its gloss screen which will still reflect, but on a slight angle the screen is close to perfect - kudos, ASUS.
Being outside in the daylight really shows just how great the Infinity's display is - so if you're wanting to use a tablet anywhere, inside and out, this is a big plus from me. The option to have a tablet that looks good (not perfect) outside, is a bonus - we all don't just sit in our houses tapping away on our tablets, some of us venture into the bright outdoors and want to be able to see our tablets, and not reflections of sunlight and glare.
