Asus Zenfone 5 Smartphone Review

 

Piece of art. Awarded with a design prize, available for a low price as an entry-level device and also really comfortable in the hands: The 5-inch Asus Zenfone 5 checks many of the right boxes in our review and only reveals a few drawbacks.

Inexpensive, HD resolution, Scratch-proof display, High build quality, LTE support, Current Android OS, Good camera, Powerful enough for current games, Low operating temperatures, Long battery runtimes

Dirt-repellant coating pretty useless, Only 3.7 GB storage for the user, Integrated battery, Small performance headroom for the next generation of games

The Zenfone 5 is a new powerful 5-inch entry-level device in Asus’ smartphone portfolio, which offers quite a lot of features for the comparatively low price. Highlights of the smartphone are the current Android 4.4.2 including ZenUI extension, LTE...

Asus ZenFone 5 review:

 

The Asus ZenFone 5 comes packed with plenty of features: It has a sleek, minimalist design that resembles the ambitious and expensive PadFone range, but it retails at an extremely affordable non-contract price: around $190, £130 or AU$200. It all...

The Asus ZenFone 5's simple design and sturdy build impress. The Asus ZenUI comes with interesting new features that enhance the Android experience.

The camera shutter is a little slow, even in bright daylight.

The ZenFone 5 is able to give other budget handsets such as Xiaomi's Redmi a challenge but in order to get the best from the phone, be sure to get the 2GB version to avoid any performance issues.

Asus Zenfone 5 Review: Large Screen, Small Price

 

Targeting the entry-level market in Asian nations, the new Zenfone 5 offers something a little different for just $170. The device packs a 5.0-inch 720p display, 8MP camera, and a rarely-used Intel Atom dual-core SoC. A polished hardware offering and a...

Large, decent quality display punches well above its weight. Good performance from the Intel components. Fantastic value for a 5-inch, dual-SIM handset.

Mediocre camera in most conditions. Sub-par battery life. Minor issues with the stock-standard smartphone design.

Many of the aspects of the Zenfone 5’s software are identical to what was seen on the

Asus ZenFone 5 Review

 

With almost nothing to complain about, the ZenFone 5 is one of those phones that say “premium but affordable devices are possible”. Hardware and software combined, the ZenFone is very polished. However, we do have a few gripes with the overall...

Asus Zenfone 5 Review

 

The Moto E is no super phone and its $129 price can attest to that, but is it worth the little money it does cost? Check out our hands-on and see.

Asus Zenfone 5 LTE review: Yin and yang - Pocket-lint

 

About two years ago cheap phones reeked of compromise; the gap between entry-level Android phones and top-end ones was massive. But that's all changed

Generally neat design, good value prospect

Screen brightness, limited battery, over-saturated camera results

The Asus Zenfone 5 offers much of the experience of a phone that, until recently, would have cost twice the price. However, its main competitor, the pocket-pleasing Moto G (2014), does make it tough for the Asus to truly stand out.

Asus ZenFone 5 review

 

Can this phone bring you a little zen?

Lovely bright screen ; Great performance ; Attractive UI

Below average battery ; Out of date Android version ; Future updates uncertain

Ratings in depth It feels like an awful long time ago that Jonney Shih, the Chairman of Asus, stood up at CES in Las Vegas and with no shortage of drama announced the new ZenFone range.
