ASUS Zenfone 5 – First impression

Posted by

Recently I got the opportunity to lay my hands on the Asus Zenfone 5 for a review and I grabbed it with both hands .

The moment I  ripped open the package and took the phone out -It was love at first sight (Violins in the background , please!).
I loved the slim and light phone , so elegant and easy to hold .You have to hold it to understand how it has been  designed for functionality and convenience .It is so thin -just 5.5 mm at its thinnest edge !

This is how thin it it , thinner than a pen !
Just to give you an idea of the screen size and the slimness -here it is 

I loved the clean and organised home page ,because personally I am a very fastidious person too.
Talking about the first look and exteriors ,it has the standard Corning Gorilla  Glass 3 exterior that makes it strong and scratch proof ( good for me as I have a young son who loves to get hold of it and use it as a toy car ).It comes in four colors-Black/White/Red/Champagne Gold .Mine is white in colour with silver/chrome accents – very classy !


The classy outlook 

Other than being thin and light and offering a convenient grip , I find the 5” display pretty huge .This also puts less strain on my already tired eyes .Also the HD 1280×720,IPS resolution gives crisp and crystal clear images .So watching videos and movies is a superlative experience on this screen.


It has glove  touch technology which means the slightest of touch is enough to give me smooth navigation .

The specifications specify that it has 2 MP front camera and 8 MP secondary camera and comes with PixelMaster , so in my next post I shall be exploring the Zenfone’s camera.
