AnonD-681860, 08 Mar 2018Guys should I go for Zenfone 5 ZE620KL or Zenfone 4 ZE554KL? I like Zenfone 4 design more than... moreHere's my review after about 2 months usage :-
Performance (9/10): I got SD630 with 4GB RAM variant, zero lags or dropping frames on gaming. Smooth at all, but could be better if not much third party apps bulit-in
Battery (8.5/10): Pretty solid battery life. I got 2 days of normal usage. 6h SoT of browsing, watch videos, play music. 4h SoT of gaming. Plus it has fast charging which charged 50% from 40 minutes. Could be better if had wireless charging.
Camera [still images] (8.5/10): Camera is one of impressive feature. Daylight pictures come out detailed, punchy colours without oversaturated, maintaining lifelike colours, pretty good contrast and great dynamic range. Don't worry if you suffered with high-contrast scenes, HDR does a great job balancing light. Low-light comes about above average. Detailed and sharped but low captured light which produced little bit darker but still good. Bokeh was average, could be better if used hardware capability to assist software-managed bokeh effect. But overall great for this price range.
Camera [video recording] (8/10): 4K video was very sharp, detailed and very good colours. EIS only available on 1080p@30fps, not on 1080p@60fps and 2160p@30fps. OIS doesn't eliminate shakiness well. But 1080p videos was good enough if you want a video with good stabilizer. But one thing makes me disappointed is it has very poor dynamic range. Hope ASUS fix this via software updates.
Hope my review helped you all to make a choice. Feel free to ask anything ;-)
Guys should I go for Zenfone 5 ZE620KL or Zenfone 4 ZE554KL? I like Zenfone 4 design more than Zenfone 5 notch but Zenfone 5 maybe got better camera than Zenfone 4 which I really need. How does Zenfone 4 camera performs? On good light and low-light is it good enough? Really need help. Thanks for any reply.
PH, 19 Feb 2018I bought my Asus Zenfone 4 (ZE554KL) last sunday @ SM North. I got the SD660 with Adreno 512. ... moreAsus's models and sub models are impossible to identify 100% accurately. There are tons of confusion over at the Asus official forums.
Ernie, 17 Feb 2018How do I identify if I get the SD 660 variant?Download "CPU-Z" from Play Store.
I began to use Asus Zenfone 4 (ZE554KL) one month ago. But I disappointed very much when I was noticed to not use double SIM card at the same time. Before, I used Zenfone 2 more then 2 years. And, I was very pleased to use Asus Zenfone 2. It was also able to providing 2 SIM usage at the same time. I expected to have better phone but Zenfone 4 seems has less specification. It is not acceptable. ☹️

The problem is the camera stopped working properly after 2 months! It takes over 10 seconds to focus and often miss resulting in out of focus pictures! Also, it don't track faces well at all!

I assure you, you can get the best camera for this price range. Dual-Pixel PDAF, f/1.8 aperture, 1.4μm pixel size, colour correction sensor, they justify to have a great photos. Pictures was incredible on daylight, lowlight was also excellent. Not the best compared to other rival like Samsungs or Phones, but great compared with the phones with the same price tag. I used Xperia XZs before changed to this phone, the pictures came out blur and suffered with much noises on lowlight with my XZs. After used this phone, I can say this phone's camera was 2 times better than XZs! Moreover, you get an extra wide-angle camera which is useful to capture more scenes.
