Pencari hp, 05 Jul 2018Asus zenfone 5 or samsung a8 (2018)?If your choosing between the Asus Zenfone 5 and the Samsung A8 you should choose the Zenfone 5... It has a better camera, ram and better in almost every way. It will also get more software updates since the A8 is not one of Samsung's main phones and will not have much attention to its updates
For those who say the phone is slow, you are clearly lying
I have used the phone for 1 week and it works great, it has vibrant display, as advertised fingerprint unlock is less than a second (dont know why some people say its so slow)(dont buy online buy from ASUS stores maybe you got ripped off), face unlock usable in bright light, 2/3 times unlocked on low light setting (but you still have the fingerprint if its too dark), all the complaints can be fixed with system update(I've updated 4 times since I first bought the unit) (SYSTEM UPDATE people, its not perfect out of the box) , the audio and camera bugs are fixed in the updates, the notch too can be hidden after the 2nd update if I remember correctly, the battery is CRISP AF and can easily last you a day of streaming and surfing the web unless you play with it for hours, I charge it at 40% and it's already 100% after 50-60 mins with AI charging, 4GB of ram is all you need unless you have tons of apps, then i would suggest getting the 6GB variant, Android Oreo eats 1.1GB of ram just so you guys know so your basically left with 3gb to use, I have never experienced lag and if you guys game just turn on the AI Boost (Faster battery discharge) so you can game smoothly, the speakers are a MONSTER, in max volume it just fills the room and is louder than most phones, if you dont mind losing a bit of audio quality turn on outdoor mode in max volume and this phone is louder than most bluetooth speakers (yes I swear it's that loud), the headphones are good but switching out the earbuds are a pain in the behind, you have to kind of squeeze and turn until its in tight because the earpiece is larger than the inserting hole of the earbuds, overall a good midrange phone so I dont know what the plethora of complaints come from, I think its mostly from people who dont update the software who keeps complaining of the bugs.

This is the smartphone that matches 6.2" display in 5.5" body...Even it's 19.5: 9 in reaio...No other phone that have this compact built....This can easily fits in hand...
The camera quality both front and back is outstanding....AI features are marvellous and low light picture quality is far better than Nokia 7+... I've tested .....OIS makes your pictures shake proof.....
I find no problem with call quality and signalling. Even they're better than most other devices....
Zenear pro is a dts supported earphone... I find it convenient.....
Notch is smaller than iPhone X.....
