    By Suraj KR

    I have used the Asus Zenfone 5 for around a month and writing a honest review of a very trusted brand,Asus. Looks: The phone does look premium for its price range but the bezels look a tad bit large for my liking,it being a 5 inch screen. The power buttons and the volume rockers are easy to press.The screen has got gorilla glass 3 protection,so that's a thumbs up Performance: The phone runs on an Intel Atom 1.6 ghz dual core processor.But since it relies on hyper threading,it makes android feel like its a quad core(adding 2 virtual threads). And that's where the performance stands out. Scrolling seems buttery smooth and the Ui itself is refreshing to say the least.I tried games like Asphalt8 and Riptide GP and it handled them with ease. The only con here is the heating up after a short period of usage itself. Overall,a more than good performance from Asus. Camera: The camera part was the one which interested me since Asus claim they use pixelmaster technology to highly improve on the quality of images captured. And true to their claims,Asus does manage to take outdoor shots with fine details and less noise.But indoors,it leaves a lot to be desired frankly. Lot of noise creeps in but something had to give for a phone priced at 10k. Battery: Asus provides us with a non-removable 2110mah battery. I'd say don't have high expectations and you won't be dissappointed. Overall: I had a pretty good experience using this phone for the better part of one month.And i have to admit that it doesn't get much better at 10 k. Asus is a worldwide trusted brand and you should buy it if you are stuck at a budget of 10k.
