The ASUS ZenFone 5 is perhaps one of the most notable devices to launch this year. It was a symbol of the company’s comeback from the mishaps of the previous generation. At the time of its launch, it offered specs that exceed what one would expect from a typical mid-range smartphone. A Snapdragon 636, an FHD+ display, and AI-assisted optics. Most of all, at PhP19,995, it was a properly priced device. In fact, ASUS has recently dropped its price to PhP17,995, making it accessible to more consumers. Fast forward three months, and the mid-range segment is now more saturated than before. Just about every OEM is battling it out with their devices- each one squeezing in more features and horsepower at the most competitive price points. As such, it’s become a question of whether the ZenFone 5 can still keep up with the other teams. Does it still have the…

Many years back, Artificial Intelligence used to be a thing of fiction, something commonly seen in sci-fi and futuristic movies. It used to be a depiction of how technology would evolve and learn, that eventually, consumers would be able to rely on it to do things for them, so they can focus on the more important tasks. Fast forward to today, AI is a reality, and has made its way into many aspects of our daily lives. It’s basically everywhere, from neural networks that learn from their environment, to algorithms that decide what you see in your social media feed. It has even made its way to the device that we spend most of our time with, the Smartphone. In this regard, the ASUS ZenFone 5 and 5Z have been widely commended for their camera performance, even getting a score of 90 in DxOMark, all thanks to their vast AI…

When we talk of camera performance, a lot of people not only look up through actual photos, but what its DxOMark score is.

To give you a short summary of just how they were able to arrive at that score, the Zenfone 5’s cameras went under a series of tests to see how they would fare in various shooting conditions. They also tested its zoom and bokeh capabilities, plus factors such as flash. contrast, color, texture, and more. The ASUS Zenfone 5 has a dual rear camera system, composed of a 12MP main sensor, along with a secondary 8MP sensor with a wide-angle…

We all talked about the ASUS Zenfone 5 during the MWC 2018 last February. However, they didn’t announce any variants like this new report from our source. The Zenfone 5 Max show-offs with its uber-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with 4GB RAM.Based from Geekbench benchmarks, the Zenfone 5 Max with model number ASUS_X00QD, has Android 8.0 Oreo for its OS. The processor could also be clocked with 1.61 GHz. For the display and design, the Zenfone 5 Max will have a 5.7-inch display with Full HD+ resolution and 18:9 screen ratio. Of course, the notch is also present just like the original Zenfone 5. Source

ASUS has been showing hints of its upcoming Zenfone 5 smartphones. And while an announcement is apparently on its way at MWC this month, a render of possible one of the devices has been spotted from a manufacturer’s manual, and named X00PD. The image shows what seems to be an 18:9 display along with a dual camera setup along with a microUSB port, which suggests that this may not be the flagship device, but perhaps more of the entry level or even a lower-mid range offering. If anything, it looks like the Zenfone Max Plus, only that the dual rear cameras are now in a vertical position. Anyway, the company’s announcement is scheduled on February 27, and we’re very excited to see the new device or devices that they have in store for us. Source via
