I purchase this incredible smartphone yesterday and for me its a two thumbs up.
1.Better Battery Capacity than the Zenfone 5(A501CG)
2. Good Picture Quality
3. Good UI -> Zen UI
4. Good Processing Performance
5. Dual Sim Capability
6. Touch Display Very Responsive
7. Good Design/Durability
8. Intel Dual Core Processor with (4 Threads)/QuadCore
1. Front Facing Camera VGA compared to 2MP 720P of Zenfone 5(A501CG)
2. RAM IS DEGRADED FROM 2GB TO 1GB
3. INTERNAL MEMORY ALSO DEGRADED FROM 16GB TO 8GB
4. DISPLAY DENSITY was reduce from ~294 ppi to ~220 ppi -> however it does not affect the performance.
5. Protection -> from Gorilla Glass 3 to Oleophobic coating.
6. GPU is unknown(however i will be doing some testing on what droid games the user can get into)
Verdict: As i have dig in to all the specification of this two smartphones, its just an inch higher from the original zenfone 5, the good thing about the zenfone lite is now more people can buy a high performance smartphone with a more less and cheaper price with bump in the latest technology. i recommend this phone to people that is tight in their budget.

my wife and i bought it. asking me to find her a nice phone to use.
i read the specs and features of this phone (ZENFONE 5 Lite) and it's quite reasonable for it's price. 1G ROM 8G internal 4g usable. why not? and yep. the only cons are the VGA front cam. anyway i'm not going to use it but my wife. it's a good buy here in PH.

@ zenponepave, yes they are off the same size when it comes to the screen. the mere difference is that when it comes to their specification. ^^
