Father's Day is just a couple of days away. We don't want to say you're lazy, but we bet you still haven't gotten your padre de pamilya anything yet. And no, you can't get him just anything—especially not the things listed here and here, doing so will make you suck harder than the Miami Heat do against the San Antonio Spurs.
So what can you get good ol' dad? Gadgets are a good bet, more so if your papi's a techie. As is the case for every special occasion that involve gift-giving, we've got a few suggestions for you right here! A slew of top-tier products and a few very affordable but still dependable devices await your scrutiny below!
FOR THE PHABLET-LOVING DAD
Does your dad want a tablet or a phone? Why not give him both? Gift him with the ASUS FonePad 7, which is basically a tablet that's also a giant phone! It gives him a larger display that'll take away all the squinting and this-close-to-face viewing, and he can also use it to holler at his kumpares on up to two SIM cards! That's a nice 2-in-1 deal right there, brothaman!
Hardware highlight: Intel Atom Z2520 dual-core CPU, 7-inch display with IPS (in-plane-switching for more viewing angles), 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable to 32GB via microSD), 5-megapixel rear camera, two micro SIM slots

The best part? This bad boy ain't gonna break your bank account, bro!
