2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Nice looking design - similar to Zenfone 4 Selfie Dual Camera and the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro
  • While the body of the smartphone is made of plastic it looks and feel premium
  • The curved sides and rounded edges makes it comfortable to hold
  • The finish on the body makes the phone easy to grip
  • Accurate fingerprint scanner (though it could have been faster)
  • The volume buttons are placed a little high, and you will tend to shuffle the phone in your hand to reach them

Display

  • Decent 5.5-inch IPS display with 2.5D curved glass - has good colour reproduction, viewing angles, and sunlight legibility

Software

  • Zen UI on top of Android is now much more streamlined and close to stock than before - which keeps things simple
  • Additional features like gestures, one-handed mode, game mode etc are useful too

Performance

  • Good, reliable day-to-day performance backed by an efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor

Camera

  • Decent front camera with live beautification mode that can be useful if you are into vlogging or doing Facebook Live videos
  • Average rear camera - there is shutter lag, and overall quality is ordinary - night shots are very ordinary too
  • If you are a lot into selfies, then the Zenfone 4 Selfie might be a decent pick, but if you want a good all-round device, then the likes of Redmi Note 4 are much better options in this price bracket

Battery

  • Battery life is decent and the phone will deliver one day of light to medium use
  • No fast charging support - the phone takes two and a half hours to charge the battery fully
