Asus ZenFone V


The Verizon exclusive Asus ZenFone V has a sleek build and specs that pack a punch for a very affordable price.

Solid specs for the price. Crisp display. Sleek build. Long battery life. Good network performance.

Mediocre camera. Heavy UI layer.

The $240 Asus ZenFone V gives you last year's flagship specs for a midrange price. It has strong (LTE-only) connectivity on Verizon's network, and hardware that's powerful enough to handle multitasking and gaming alike. And it's only $30 more than the...

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 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: A mid-range handset with hidden depths Review | ZDNet


The ZenFone 5 is unremarkable in terms of design and hardware specs, but includes a range of AI-related features that lift it above the ordinary.

High quality 6.2-inch screen ; 90% screen-to-body ratio ; All-day battery life ; Some clever AI features ; Well placed fingerprint sensor

Slippy glass back ; Second SIM is sacrificed for MicroSD

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
