Asus Zenfone 5 LTE review

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. If Asus were to add a better battery and boost the maximum screen brightness then this phone would be a step ahead. Even so, whether you choose the 3G or 4G LTE model, if you're on a budget then it's definitely one to check out.As a first stab at making a mainstream phone, the Asus Zenfone 5 is a fine effort. read more →

  • Generally neat design,
  • Good value prospect
  • Screen brightness,
  • Limited battery,
  • Over-saturated camera results

Asus Zenfone 5 review

After the searing disappointment of the Asus Zenfone 4, the Zenfone 5 is a real relief. It’s better in almost every respect, and easily merits the extra cash. It's an excellent phone in most respects, and should help put Asus on the map as a phone-maker to watch out for if you want a good-value phone. For now it’s a pretty good alternative to the Motorola Moto G if you want a slightly larger screen. read more →

  • Great screen
  • Decent camera for the price
  • Excellent value
  • Battery life not great
  • A few camera bugs to squish

Great phone for almost anyone

I am using this for more that 22 months and the phone runs like a breeze. When one is not bothered about 4G or Gyro, this phone can offer power-packed performance. It has a decent camera, bit low volume but crispy audio quality, excellent display and almost zero lag performance. Glass screen is unmatchable, I am using without a screen guard all along and still there is not a single scratch.

  • Decent camera.
  • Flawless Gorilla glass screen.
  • Audio clarity is superb.
  • Display is vivid and crystal clear.
  • Awesome performance with powerful Intel Atom Processor and 2GB RAM.
  • Zen UI is outstanding.
  • Professional looks.
  • A bit heavy.
  • No 4G.
  • No Gyroscope.
  • Sound volume is low.
  • Some connectivity issues of the headphone jack.
  • Screen is a fingerprint magnet and takes smudges.
  • No Fingerprint sensor.
