Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Nice, aesthetic design - like the rest of the Zenfone range
  • Nice grip, and feel
  • Asus ZenUI is one of the better skins on top of Android
  • Decent speed/performance in daily use
  • Decent camera performance, with a nifty laser auto-focus system
  • Decent audio quality
  • Decent call quality
  • Amazing battery life - the phone can last a full 3-4 days on full charge, with moderate use!
  • Compact, smart looking, premium design with a metal build - very similar to the Redmi Note 3, but more easy to handle (because of the smaller size)
  • Excellent ergonomics, with the curves on the back making the phone very comfortable to hold
  • Light-weight with an excellent weight distribution, despite the large battery it holds inside
  • Nice, vibrant, and bright display, with excellent touch-responsiveness, and good viewing angles
  • MIUI is a one of the better Android skins around
  • Very good speed/performance - one of the best in this price range
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good audio quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • A bit heavy - because of the large battery
  • Display is decent, but has a resolution on the low side
  • Takes over 5 hours to charge fully with the included 1A/5V charger
  • Plenty of bloatware comes pre-installed
  • Camera is decent, and almost at par with the more expensive Redmi Note 3, but still could have been better, especially with low light performance
  • Loudspeaker volume could have been better
