It took me a bit of looking around to figure out some configurations. And when I did, I must say that I was really impressed.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.I had some difficulties in setting up my Wi-fi , I do use an ipad and did not have any issues in confuring the wi-fi , I had to restart the phone few times finally to make it work . Once it sarted wotrking , I was very happy with the performance and features .
I liked this phone for its beautiful and sleek design but now the display graphics provided by its 5inch wide HD screen impressed me more when I was watching few HD movies, and makes it look premium.The surround sound is awesome, gives you a theatre like movie watching experience. I did not see any lag while playing games which I used to experience with my Samsung galaxy phone .Asus Zenphone 5 display makes phone worth not less than Rs 16K-18K . You guys have done really great job here, Well Done Asus !!
The next interesting thing that I love about this phone is the camera. An 8 mpx camera for 11K with some really cool features .It has several filters such as rewind time ( choose your best photo in a few seconds before and after photo) , HDR mode ( for better quality of colors) , panoramic mode , night shots in low light , selfie mode ( indicates the number of people who appear in the selfie , and when you recognize their faces will proceed to make several pictures) , embellishment , miniature, depth of field , intelligent removal (removes that person who crosses behind you automatically) , all smiles ( burst of photos, choose the one you like ) and gif animation mode . The video mode has the time interval mode to record videos with traffic lights . Amazing !!!
Oh I forgot about this feature , you will love it . You can merge contacts on your phone .
Overall a great phone, fulfills my requirements good value for you money . The only con I see is the heating up after a short period of usage itself.
I am happy with the battery life , I haven’t done too many testing on the battery.
