With the launch of the Zenfone 5 series smartphones, ASUS aims to once again reclaim the crown of the performance to price king, offering the most ideal user experience, the best technologies and features at very competitive price points in just about every segment. The brand’s slogan #BackTo5PH is in fact, a recollection of the original Zenfone 5’s mantra. The Zenfone 5 is the brand’s newest offering in the upper mid-range category, and just looking at it, you can immediately tell, that it was built from the ground up with the utmost attention to detail. It features an all new design, a more capable processor enhanced by AI capabilities, a new software, and of course, improved optics. Will this phone be the key to the company’s rise from the previous generation’s mishaps? or did they not do enough? Let’s find out in this review. ASUS Zenfone 5 Specs Design and…

ASUS did mention an upcoming “Max Pro” during our interview, and now, that device has was just launched in India as the Zenfone Max Pro M1, which dons a 5,000 mAh battery, and is powered by a Snapdragon 636 SoC. Aside from these outstanding specs, the M1 also features an 18:9 display ratio with a FHD+ display which is very common for a smartphone nowadays. You can see the similarities of the M1 to the ASUS Zenfone 5Q – the camera setup, physical buttons and even the display but needless to say, the Max Pro M1 has a matte black texture, unlike the 5Q which has a glossy, fingerprint-magnet glass. For the internal hardware, the M1 almost outshines everyone from the same variant. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 which you can also see in the latest Zenfone 5. The M1 is also ditching the ZenUI and replacing it with a pure…

ASUS has done such good job with its new ZenFone 5 series that both the ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Q were sold out (1000 ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Q’s combined) in under an hour just after they were launched last April 14!

At the opening of ASUS’ 100th store in Ayala Malls Feliz, we were given a few minutes to talk with some of the company’s big guns, including the Country Manager, Mr. George Su, and the CEO himself, Mr. Jerry Shen, to get a better glimpse of what the future holds for the Zenfone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxEi9GfVmYg The Zoom Lineup is Officially Discontinued The Zenfone 3 Zoom will be the last of the Zoom lineup that will see the light of day. In their tests, they found out that having better light sensitivity combined with digital zoom is much more beneficial compared to optical zoom. Somehow, this makes sense as the new Zenfone 5z is already equipped with powerful and ai-assisted optics, but personally, we’d still love to see an even more camera-focused device. The Motive Behind the Very Aggressive Pricing of the Zenfone  5 Series ASUS wants to give its users a…
