Bought this phone 3 days ago. Beautiful screen, fast UI, nice camera though I have issue when using wide angle the picture is pixelated. I hope it can be fixed on future update. Main 12MP camera is good. The battery seems to drain faster compared to my Zenfone 3, it could be because of the screen and the charging time takes longer as well. Despite that I still love my new phone. Its beautiful (Notch hidden).
The Battery Life is so disappointing, especially when you turn on the mobile data.The juice drained in 4-5 Hours of playing.
Fahad: I was considering same choices. I got Asus Zenfone 5 2018 3 days ago. Nokia has bad quality jack output, it is quite bigger. Zenfone 5 got me by its stabillised camera and larger notched display. Samsung A8 has waterproofing but the worst camera of those 3, display is small comparing to the size of the body. Asus is the winner imho.
this phone has problem with audio from headphones. sound very horrible with the latest update. i think will switch to LG v30+ if developer doesnt concern about this.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2018Hey bro, does your zenfone 5's rear camera do well in the dark? I can't figure out how to remo... moreMost camera sensors (even big ones) display noise in low light. Noise reduction is usually applied to it, but then details are lost.
You could use a third-party apple like Google camera, open camera, snap camera, etc.
Each has a different noise reduction algorithm.
To me, a noisy photo is better because you can always edit it in photography software to reduce noise while keeping as much details as possible. I don't like the camera to decide for me.
for less noise in low night . just use manual mode and lower iso. but the pic wouldn't come out as "bright"

1. Gorgeous screen quality overall. It's vivid, has good viewing angles, great contrast... moreHey bro, does your zenfone 5's rear camera do well in the dark? I can't figure out how to remove the noise/distort when using the cam in the dark. The noise is terrible in the dark, it's like the cam has grain filter. This is my 2nd Zenfone 5 and it's still the same when using cam at night/dark, I had my first zenfone 5 replaced when I used it to play mp3 in max volume with dolby(rock eq) for 3hours, one of its speakers broke sounded like a teared plastic.
I tried some camera apps in playstore but it still grainy/noise when using cam at night. Hope someone could help.
