Reviews for the Asus Zenfone 5 (2018) ZE620KL

80% ASUS ZenFone 5 review: Budget X
Source: Hardware Zone English
Overall, the ZenFone 5 offers plenty of flagship features at a very reasonable price. After a misstep with last year's ZenFone 4, I'm happy to see a return to form for the ZenFone brand. If you're looking for great value without feeling like you're settling for a budget device, look no further.

ASUS ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL) Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS ZenFone series first earned its reputation by having phones with good specs at reasonable price tags. The ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL) is certainly one of those devices. For under Php20K, it offers a large high-resolution display, powerful Snapdragon 636 chipset, 4GB of RAM, good dual-rear cameras, and Android Oreo out of the box. The company may have flopped with the ZenFone 4, but with the ZenFone 5, it looks like they’re getting back on track.

ASUS ZenFone 5 Review – Intelligent Zenfone?
Source: Manila Shaker English
Overall, this is a good smartphone for its price and is definitely worth the hype. Though we’re not saying that this is a perfect smartphone – because it’s not. It has its shortcomings and we hope Asus will improve them over time. (Put a hide notch option, please!).

ASUS ZenFone 5 Review: Long Awaited Comeback
Source: Unbox English
After two years of pricing mis-steps, ASUS finally has a solid mid-range offering in the ZF5. Retailing at just under 20K at Php 19,995, the ZF5 is worthy comeback phone for the Taiwanese brand that has managed to rekindle the old flame that many of its previous (and current) users felt when they first announced the ZF2 and ZF2 Deluxe. The design may have been heavily influenced by a more premium brand, but there’s no denying the value that consumers get at the price point.

Hands-on: The ASUS ZenFone 5 is an Android phone with a notch
Source: Hardware Zone English
ASUS uses a combination of 52 different expressions to mimic yours, and it can also be used in video calls or live streams on social media. The company doesn't use a 3D depth camera for this, and it's instead trained its algorithm on hundreds of thousands of 2D faces with different expressions, lighting conditions, and angles. The algorithm then makes use of this data to approximate a 3D model of your face.

Asus Zenfone 5, 5z, 5 Lite hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Tempting pricing is what probably raises the potential for success of the new Asus Zenfones. The Zenfone 5 and 5z impress with notched full-screens and well-specked main camera, while the Lite model has not three but four cameras and a trendy screen. The Max (M1) brings long-lasting Oreo experience and dual-camera on the cheap.

Finally, there's AI Charging, which will learn from how you charge your phone to help preserve the battery in the long term. For example, if you often keep your phone plugged in overnight, AI Charging will top it up to 80 percent and keep it there until early in the morning, before bringing it all the way to full just before you wake up, which Asus claims could as much as double the battery's lifespan.

In retrospect, the new ZenFone 5 phones are really Asus’ most exciting phones yet. They’re well-designed – albeit not very original – they look and feel premium, and their software is quite possibly Asus’ most polished version of Android yet.

We’re not yet convinced by the camera scene recognition - it’s something digital cameras have been doing for years, after all - but last year’s ZenFone 4 delivered great photos for the price. Hopefully it’s a case of more of the same for 2018.

In the briefing experience, the ZenFone 5 Lite handled well and once again presented as a much more premium device than the specs would have you expect. The camera and other apps were quick and responsive, and it took excellent pictures — albeit not quite as good as the ZenFone 5.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
