The Asus Zenfone 5 is officially here and it’s easy to confuse this phone as the iPhone X. It’s the same notch right at the top of the display and the similarities don’t just end there. To find out more about this latest flagship from Asus, keep reading.
Almost all the phones nowadays are showing up with a near bezel-less display but the phone companies managed to find different ways to do that so far without making it look similar to other phones. However, Asus kind of went straight for the Apple iPhone X like design. The placement of the dual rear cameras will also remind you the same phone from Apple. There is a little bit of bezel at the bottom of the screen but the resemblance is still striking. According to Asus, they wanted to give the users what they want even if it looks like a copy of the Apple’s latest phone. The phone comes with a bigger 6.2-inch screen showing 2246 x 1080 pixels resolution, 18.5:9 aspect ratio and 402ppi of pixel density. The screen-to-body ratio is quite impressive at 90% percent. We get an aluminum body and glass front unlike most of the other phones but it’s still prone to fingerprints. It’s expected to be found in two different colors after the release date: Meteor Silver and Midnight Blue.
Dual rear cameras are nothing new these days but according to Asus, this one is intelligent and comes with some advanced AI features. It can adapt to the way you like capturing your pictures and help you focus more on the subject instead of the camera. Some of the features include Real-time Portraits, AI Photo Learning, AI Scene Detection and Real-time Beautification. The primary camera is a 12-megapixel one with f/1.8 aperture while the other one is an 8-megapixel one with f/2.0 aperture. This camera is capable of capturing 2160p videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at both 30 and 60fps. The front camera is also a good 8-megapixel one with f/2.0 aperture and comes with gyro EIS as well like the rear ones. If you are in the market for a phone with good camera, there is the Google Pixel 2 XL or the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus that you can check out. These are slightly more expensive compared to the Asus Zenfone 5 Kuwait price but will definitely surprise you with it’s amazing camera.
This is the mid-range version among the three new Zenfone 5 phones released by Asus which is visible with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor that it packs inside. This processor will be paired with 4 or 6GB of RAM depending on the version you pick but the built-in storage will be the same 64GB. It will be powered by 3300mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery with Asus BoostMaster charge technology that can recharge the battery quickly.
