ASUS Zenfone 5 review: a surprise package loaded with features

The ASUS Zenfone 5 manages to stand out with its useful software features

Jul 12 2014 By Deepak Dhingra
  • Stylish looks
  • Smooth performance
  • Lovely display
  • Feature-loaded and capable snapper
  • Fresh-looking UI with tons of useful features
  • Host of handy apps
  • The design&rsquo
  • s mainstay, the concentric circle pattern, is prone to scratches
  • Average battery life

The 8GB variant of the Zenfone 5 will be yours for Rs 9,999, while you can opt for the 16GB version if you’re willing to shell out Rs 12,999. At this cost, it’s a worthy alternative to the Moto G (review), which has so far been ruling the roost in this price bracket. The Zenfone 5 trumps over it because of the larger screen and double the RAM, not to mention a better camera. The other 5-inch options available in a similar price bracket as the 16GB Zenfone 5 include the Huawei Honor 3C (first impressions) and the Micromax Canvas Turbo, but the Zenfone 5 still stands out thanks to its camera and software features. And if you consider its 8GB variant, it hardly has any rival in the sub-Rs 10,000 range that can match its specs.From a capable shooter to its smooth performance, and a software interface that’s not only refreshing, but also offers loads of useful apps and features, the ASUS Zenfone 5 is a solid option that looks like great value for money. As we write this, the Xiaomi Mi 3 hasn’t landed in India yet, and that also looks like a game-changer for the specs it offers and for the price it’s listed at. However, that doesn’t take away anything from the fact that ASUS has managed to come up with a very worthy option if you’re looking for a capable daily driver.

A THOROUGH REVIEW after extensive usage for 2 days
07 Feb 2015 By Gaurav Marwaha On

I READ A NO. OF REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING, FOUND NONE OF THEM BEING PERSPECTIVE BUILDING AND DEEP....BOUGHT THE FONE AS A CALCULATED RISK AND FOUND THAT THE FONE DELIVERS TO MY NEEDS.... HERE IS THE COMPLETE REVIEW (ALSO COMPARED WITH YUREKA) nn1. battery: drains fast...needs charging everyday unless on standby...standby with wifi on is battery prudent...u see the battery cycle improving. ALMOST SIMILAR TO YUREKA WHICH HAS SLIGHTLY BIGGER BATTERY, BUT A QUADCORE PROCESSOR AND 5.5" DISPLAY... nn2. sound: sufficently loud, contrary to wat i read before buying. might not be as loud as others, still serves the purpose of ringtones and watching videos with adequate detail. could be better. sound over headfones s really good. using JBL J56BT and Goji Headfones. YUREKA AND AZ5 HAVE SAME OUTPUT nn3. camera: slight shutter lag that was not there in 1.6GHZ model before kitkat update....fotos are clear and detailed. quality suffers in all modes in low light conditions - either too bright or too noisy or dull... pics come out to be plasticky...unreal.. though color saturation and contrasts are not altered (like yureka and redmi) front camera gives u decent enuf pics and the zen ui lets u edit selfies in the required way (YUREKA CAMERA IS NOT EVEN CLOSE) nn4. display: beats all displays in same resolution... crisp clear. but auto brightness takes time to get accustomed esp if u are previously using a fone that has higher brightness settings for normal usage. os has no snag. (YUREKA DISPLAY, THOUGH NOT AS CRISP, BEING BIGGER IS MORE APPEALING TO MY TASTES... ESP READING EBOOK/PDF// GAMING) nn5. gaming - graphics - pretty decent...dint notice heating in low - mid requirement games...dint install high end games, as i really wont use them. clash of clans, angry birds, subway surfer and shadow fight 2 run smooth. (YUREKA IS A GREAT GAMING FONE, AZ5 IS NO WAY NEAR) nn6. multitasking- idle usage after all installations and routene settings (wifi on, auto sync on, dropbox whatsapp etc. on in the background) is around 700 MB, giving u around 1300 MB free... Zenfone has boost function in the dropdown menu (no dedicated task manager, one widget only ) that does the job of killing all apps. (YUREKA S BETTER HERE CZ OF CYANOGEN MOD AND MORE CORES) nn7. UI glitches - a couple of time i experienced Wifi Glitche.. fone restarted >> previously stored wifi no longer remembered>> once unable to connect despite numerous efforts. nalso experienced a fone hang on the second day when fone was on standby....!!! really worked fine after restart... will try to figure out why and repost in future if i experience same kinda glitch... (YUREKA HAS MORE GLITCHES THAN ZEN UI)noverall - 9/10 score to zenUI, one short cz of the glitches. zen has really worked to deliver a UI that has some great features like letting u install apps directly on sd card, excellent keyboard [CANT DO THAT ON YUREKA ], calling/phone app, zen toolkit,etc,etc,etc.. no bloatware.... music app is well designed too... nnin sum total: anyday better than competition devices and all micromax devices. being a worldwide product, u easily get accessories and spares. i ordered a nillkin backcase, and a garmore tampered glass -both of good quality and reasonable price. (YUREKA ACCESSORIES ARENT THAT WELL AVAILABLE AS AZ5)n1. pros: great looks, good price, easy availability of standard accessories, smooth and userfriendly UI even for advanced users, decent camera for its price... good graphics and cpu (LOOKS LIKE A FONE NOT A FABLET/TABLET WHICH YUREKA IS)n2. cons: battery cud be more, wifi glitches, bottom glittering surface is grooved and gets dirty, cud be removed - really useless..makes it bulky,.. buttons cud hav been lit..(YUREKA HAS BACKLIT BUTTONS) nnEND WORDS: if u are a heavy user, go for a device with more internal storage and higher cpu speed and battery ( redmi note 4g, or yureka in this range), if u savvy great looks, better UI and a well designed machine optimum for moderate usage, go for this... its like a royal enfield...more maintainence, but more elegance and presence.. yureka and redmi notes are just pulars, only plus point being speed (also, they are not dukes any day ;)...if ur planning to use it for moderate calling, whatsapp , fb, music, some reading and browsing and a few games and useful apps, and want a UI that doesnt need 3rd party launchers like go,etc.. buy it, along with a powerful SD card (class 10 or higher) for ur songs and documents... I DINT GO FOR YUREKA CZ: 1. 5 inch display is adquate for me, fits in pockets, and is operable single-handedly... but the main reason was the flash sale model for these chinese devices...i wanted a trusted brand which wud give aftersales services.. i get wht i see ....nothing more nothing less.. (see redmi 1s and xiaomi MI3 reviews, where ppl are shouting for services and support ) nnLIKE IF IT HELPS...SO THAT OTHERS LIKE U CAN BENEFIT FROM IT TOO..!! ?

Poor Market strategy by FLIPKART
04 Aug 2014 By Akshay gupta On

i have been looking up for 8 GB version since last 20 days and its still unavailable while 16 GB is available all the time. I guess its just a strategy to sell 16 GB version more because both the phone have same features except of memory at the cost diffrence of 3000 bucks. Disaappointed.

    Huawei Nova 3i has some uniquely advanced features that make it win the battle against Huawei P20 Lite and Asus Zenfone 5. Huawei Nova 3i firstly have a dual primary (16+2 MP) as well as dual front (24+2 MP) cameras which is really good for portrait shots. Secondly, it has more battery capacity and the best HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor.

    I would definitely recommend you to wait for the Moto Z3. It offers you a better processor with much better camera. Also, the camera quality of Moto phones is pretty much impressive.
