Asus ZenFone 5 Review- An Inexpensive Treat!

 

Asus ZenPhone 5 is a budget Android phone with some decent specifications and elegant design.

• Sturdy built quality ; • Clean Design ; • Powerful Camera

• Average Battery life ; • Heats up

ZenPhone 5 can turn the tables upside down for Asus only if the firm sensibly price this product. Brands can ‘make it or break it’ through pricing the product. The phone, as we expect will launch below Rs 15,000 and at that price point, the ZenFone 5...

Sleek design, fantastic battery life, good camera, good value for money

It's pretty huge, and there don't seem to be many accessories (cases, etc) available for it

Asus ZenFone 5 Black 16GB Unlocked & SIM Free

 

GREAT spec for the money (basically you pay at least £100 more for this spec on the bigger branded phones) ; ZenUI is brilliant and makes finding things faff-free ; Screen is crisp and bright ; Charges up VERY fast ; Very easy to use overall ;...

Battery life ; Notification light has just 3 colours and is way too dim

Fast ; Looks good ; Asus software is excellent (camera, File Manager, etc)

Battery life could be better, but I don't think it is worse than in other, similarly fast phones
