Asus Zenfone 5 Review – Conclusion
We spent a week with Asus Zenfone 5 and noticed a few things to include in the pros and cons of this phone, lets have a look at it.
Asus Zenfone 5 Pros
The very first thing I said after holding Zenfone 5 was “it’s so light weight” as compared to my Xperia Z1. Screen display is very bright with vivid colors, perfect for a 720p resolution phone. UI is great and so is memory consumption of the device. Battery life is descent, not so bad not so good. Good gaming and video quality experience.
Asus Zenfone 5 Cons
Size of bezels can be a issue for many users like us. Capacitive touch buttons are not so responsive like they would have been as onscreen keys. Camera is slow, lags ( can be a firmware issue ), over exposed pics. Mediocre quality of external speaker. It do looks like a cheap plastic device when you hold it in your hand ( as compared to Moto G ). We are not impressed by overall build quality of phone.
Asus Zenfone 5 Verdict
If you are comparing it with Moto G then you might have to go in depth as both devices perform equal in terms of performance. We would rate both devices equal if compared and will go for anyone by self choice. You can say Asus is doing great when firmware updates are concerned, we got 3 bug fixing updates of android 4.3 within 2 days of taking phone out of the box. You might take a look at Zenfone 5 if you are going to buy a budget android phone in India.
