Efficient performer within budget
Display, Design and Configuration
The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite features a 5-inch IPS LCD multi touch display with qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels) and a pixel density of 220ppi. The oleophobic coating on the top prevents smudges and fingerprints. It has a soft matte finish on the rear panel and its patent concentric circular design at the front fascia's bottom. It has a weight of 160g and measures 10.8mm around the waist but looks pretty slimmer.

The Asus Zenfone 5 Lite poses an 8MP autofocus camera at the rear end which supports LED flash, panorama, geo-tagging, face detection and touch focus. It houses a 0.3MP camera on the front. It has an inbuilt storage unit of 8GB expandable up to 64GB.
