Reviews for the Asus Zenfone 5

Asus Zenfone 5
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Asus Zenfone 5 is a low-cost Android phone with a large screen. It may not be all that phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 are, but it certainly seems to get you a lot for your money. UK prices for the Zenfone 5 haven't yet been announced, but as it's set to sell for $200 without a contract in the US, this should prove to be one of the cheapest ways to get a 5-inch screen phone.

PowerVR SGX544:

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z2580: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at 1.3 - 2 GHz (short bursts), a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 based GPU clocked at 400 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


5.0": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
